Summary: This lil guy amazes me for the size and price. Sure we know it's got the fantastic 1080p/60p recording, but the real star here is the ZOOM. 72x of perfect-clarity zoom, perfect to hone in on the little details. Of course a Tripod is essential for filming when zoomed.
Summary: The camcorder is small lightweight easy to use and has an excellent picture. It is just right for carrying around and capturing those spur of the moment opportunities. The supplied battery does not allow for a long recording time but that is fixed by upgrading to a larger battery.
Summary: I love the camera its small and easy to use. I had no trouble at all figuring out how to use it and the on screen instruction on the menu covered everything I needed to know. I did order extra batteries for it with a longer record time.
Summary: Panasonic HC-V201 First impressions: The camera is really small and really light, even with the battery attached, fits in the palm of your hand, operation buttons easy to reach with the fore finger and thumb. The LCD monitor screen is bright with clear, legible print.
Summary: As usual, reviewers at Amazon get things right and this is another reason to trust them. I own cameras and am pretty happy with working in manual modes, but I have never owned a camcorder and didn't want to pay a great deal in case I never used it. This is great bang for your buck.
Summary: After reading many reviews I decided to go for this one. I bought the camcorder as a surprise present and it was very well received. He isn't tech minded and this is a really simple and easy to use product. It works well during the day and at night, it has a good battery life and a good zoom.
