Summary: I bought this camcorder to get some candid videos at my wedding. It did its job, and it did it well. The video is clear and the audio is excellent, even without tweaking it in video editing software. The colors could have been brighter, sure, but for how much we paid, not having super vibrant colors is to be expected.
Summary: This is a good unit. First impression is how small it is, about the size of those mini 8oz soda cans. It has a bright screen and controls are fairy intuitive. The video and frame shot pictures look good. The formatting is a bit strange and set up will take a few minutes. After using a friends GOPro however...I now wish I had spend a few more dollars and got one of those instead, much easier in many ways, but not enough for me to return the Panasonic.
Summary: There are other camcorders that cost more and have similar/more features than this particular model. I mainly used it for vacation filming on beaches and in well lit areas. Unsure of how it works in low light since I have yet to use it in that capacity, but in natural light and artificial light it works very well.
Summary: Had SOFTWARE PROBLEM ON 3 DIFFERENT COMPUTERS. Windows 7.1 on 2 desktops and Vista on the laptop. Called Pana tech and got some poor English speaking idiot that after 15 min. Told me he couldn't help. Had the cam ready to send back and drank a few and got calmed down. Got it working 2 hrs. later. Glad !!! I really like it after 2 days .simple to use or hi tech if you want to spend the time.
Summary: Great little camera, easy to useand great picture quality. I would recommend this to any casual user who wants an easy to use and view camera. Images loaded directly to my windows 8 pc without loading the included software.
Summary: I'll go ahead and list the cons first: - No audio input (you can't attach an external mic.) - The built in mic adds quite a bit of white noise - Because it's 1080i rather than 1080p there's quite a bit of blur and some sluggishness on fast moving objects. But the Pros: - It's full HD, the picture quality is pretty darn good for the price - It's tiny, and very light weight!
Summary: Got this so my children could use one to record the family trips to various places we go. It has worked well so far and has been easy for them to use. We like it and I like the product it produced. Was cheap enough that I did not worry about it breaking but gave a reasonable result for the kids to enjoy the result.
Summary: This is a nice high definition camera; what makes it even better is the video editing software. I realize some reviewers have had difficulties with getting it to install; basically the way around this is to take the file folder from the disk and to transfer it to your computer. Then, run the software and install it from there.
