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.
Summary: The camcorder is lightweight and the zoom feature is impressive. It is very easy to use and I can see that the battery life is averagely good, although I suggest to buy an additional battery as this camcorder is fun to use....The only thing I can hear a small noise coming from inside the camera due probably to the oscillator of the stabilizer.....however, the noise is not recorded so it doesn't bother me too much. If you manage to find one ...buy it!
Summary: An incredibly easy to use camcorder. Haven't set it up to wifi yet as there hasn't been a need to. The picture quality is great and the zoom is amazing!! Sadly, Panasonic use the AVCHD format which works great with PC but not Mac or Chrome Book (Won't open) There is a mac convertor which i used but it reduces the quality. Obviously this is an issue with Mac / Chromebook - but it may hinder some users. Hence the 4 star. Thankfully i have access to PC!
Summary: So far the results are excellent and I have a Panasonic PVR which takes the SD card for easy playback. The only downside is the fact it doesn't have a viewfinder and in sunny conditions it can be tricky see your subject clearly in order to frame. Can't judge battery life yet as I haven't used it enough.
Summary: If you are looking for a camcorder that produces excellent footage. Great stills. Brilliant zoom then this is the one for you. Battery last ages. Nicely compact and sturdy.Bought to record sons wedding in HD quality. Beats my other cameras hands down.
Summary: I am very pleased with my purchase. This camcorder has WiFi as standard which is great for downloading footage over the internet and connectivity to other devices. The picture quality is excellent and the menu options are easy to understand and use. I also like just one memory recording onto SD card as I find camcorders with both can be a faff moving and downloading from one media capture to another. Very good build quality. Overall a very capable camcorder.
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.
