Summary: My stepdaughter has started to get into videos and I thought this might give her more creativity than the video recorder in her pocket camera. Well, the first thing we discovered is the HD format is in Panasonic's own format and not a universal format like mpeg or mp4. It won't work with PC video editor that comes with your PC. You have to downgrade the resolution to the Apple format, which is somewhere between HD and SD. The camera itself is very small and compact.
Summary: This camcorder has fantastic zooming capability. Video quality is average. But still picture quality is really poor. It is too blur and grainy even in day light. That is why I have returned this camcorder. I never recommend this camcorder for still picture but it takes marginally good video.
Summary: I got this camera from another store and am returning it after a few days (see the Cons for my reasons). Also, Amazon has falsely labelled it as 1080p, but it is really 1080i (Look up what that means if you don't know). Pros: I love all of the features and menu options that this camera provides. It also has a great battery life (due to it not being a touchscreen). It will last all day if you keep the lcd panel closed (to put it into stand-by) when not in use.
Summary: Great little camera. Quality of video was very good for a camcorder at this price point. Compact, ultra lightweight. -Almost too small in my large clumsy hands. But now the camera has developed a nasty bout of hiccups. It's like the image stabilising has gone into some sort of spasm. This happens on screen while I'm filming and during playback. Turning off the anti shake doesn't help so I'm packing it up into its box and returning for repair.
Summary: Bought this Camcorder to take on holiday to Barbados. Very good video quality. However I found the following issues:- 1. The "Record Button" is a little stiff to operate and not in an ideal position. When depressing the button to pause the recording it is difficult not to tilt the camera to the left and downwards, which showed up when the recordings where played back. Because of this, virtually every clip had to be edited on my PC to get rid of this. 2.
Summary: Bought this small HD camcorder for its 37xoptical zoom and its small handy size - mostly for travelling and bird filming. The problem is the small LCD screen and the posibillity to catch a flying bird and keep it within the LCD screen. A view finder could have solved the problem plus keept the camcorder more stabil as you press it against your head (eye). When filming (zooming) the background is melting together (specially small leaves etc.
Conclusion: Видеокамера стоит своих денег, она конечно не идеальная, но за такую стоимость вполне сносно выполняет свои функции. Я приобретала ее в интернет-магазине и доставили мне ее Новой Почтой! Я проверила на месте, чтобы не было битых мегапикселей и резкость экрана, а потом лишь оплатила покупку. Очень удобно. Уже снимала свою дочь на улице, качество хорошее плюс камера невесомая почти, отлично помещается в сумку.

Cons: Съемка ночью, самые простые характеристики, слабая матрица, при плохом освещении лучше не использовать,, Мало настроек, Качество съемки,слабый аккумулятор,отсутствие видоискателя, для такой цены - нет, Цена немного завышена
