Summary: Buy this camera because it is within the average range in price later model brings less zoom but offers more image quality, I think you should sacrifice little more image quality by zooming higher, the highest quality consumes more slower memory and the editing is done, I am very satisfied with the product purchased.
Summary: i just came from a trip where the enviroment change very fast and i need it a camera very small, accurate, easy to used and wi-fi i hit the lotto here, excellent video, i own about 3 camcorders different brands and this is the cream of the crop, very low light no problem! the price very good.
Good camera, but intended for the continent and not the UK.

Summary: Like some previous reviews on this site the Amazon box was very secure, but the camera box did not have a security seal on it. The camera itself is OK but it came with charger connections meant for continental use (ie 2 pins) although it did have a 3pin adapter included. This camera was purchased as a replacement for one that I had bought from Currys but which had been badly damaged when my husband was attacked whilst we were on holiday.
Summary: For the money this is an excellent Camcorder; essentially it does everything it says on the tin. Construction is a bit light and flimsy, but this doesn't hamper its operation and makes for easy carrying in a large pocket. Image quality is excellent and sound is good for a camera in this price range. The only thing that lets is down is the quality of the still images - but then you don't buy a Camcorder to take still images.
Summary: We bought this for a drone project that we are working on and it has proven to be an outstanding bit of kit. The images are super stable and excellent quality. The zoom is great and overall we are really pleased with this camcorder.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace my Sony SR37 which I thought was great but this camera really is Brilliant, the Quality of the recordings are first class,very easy to use straight out of the box,battery life is not too great and a spare one costs the earth.so we will have to wait for the chinese to start selling them, the software is ok very easy but just adequate I setup the wifi fairly quickly although I don't suppose it will get used very often, you need a class 10 SD...
Excerpt: Panasonic V520 is the best product in this price range. It has got multiple connectivity in terms of HDMI, USB, AV, Wi-Fi and NFC. Zoom is unparalleled of 80x(extended). Though 3000x digital zoom is not practical, 50x optical is the highest available in even up to 1 lakh range (Sony ,cannon and Panasonic) Picture quality is good and videos shots are clear and crisp. Stabilisation is also really good. But, formats other than FullHD AVCHD will not be good enough.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
Summary: Wir haben den Camcorder nun einige Zeit. Er lässt sich sehr gut handhaben und mit unserer Heimelektronik verknüpfen. Er ist intuitiv zu bedienen. Einziges Manko: Bei Fotos in unzureichendem Licht (letztens im Museum) fehlt ein Blitzlicht.
