Should be good, it's not, don't buy

mmicsa, Amazon
4 November 2013
  • Summary: I was very happy when I bought the camcorder, and for a few month it worked great. First problem was that one of the CMOS sensors just died. After a few hours, it magically came back to life on its own. I ignored the issue and went on with my life. After that, it just stopped recording. First it happened once, took out the battery, put it back, it came back to life. Now, whatever I do, the Accessing Card LED turns on but I cannot shoot any video.

Great camera

TucsonTRD, Amazon

  • Summary: I don't have a whole lot of experience with all the features and capabilities of this camera. After taking a few different videos, I hooked the camera up to the TV and the color seemed off. I tried different modes and couldn't figure it out. However, after downloading the videos to my computer, the color seems spot on. I don't know what that is about, but just a heads up to anyone experiencing the same thing.

  • Summary: This thing rocks...the video and picture capabilities almost eliminate the need to carry anything else. Small and compact...its light weight makes it so easy to carry.

Stopped working after 7 months

SC, Amazon
30 July 2013
  • Summary: The camcorder inexplicably stopped working after only a few times using it. The battery seems to take a charge, but the camera itself will not turn on. Unfortunately, the breakdown occurred after the labor warranty expired and Panasonic's quote to repair it was nearly as much as a new camcorder. I am very disappointed and will not be buying another Panasonic product again.

Great Image Quality but...

S. Ababio "Azonto", Amazon
7 May 2013
  • Summary: I really love this camera. Before buying I looked up several videos on youtube and this camera stood out even when compared to high end camcorders. I bought its and used it for a while but had to return it because of the zoom noise. I used it for a video tutorial, on a tripod in a quiet environment and during playback the zoom noise was too much because the mic sits in front of the lens, I had no choice than to return it. You can buy an external mic to eliminate it.

Camer Died after 4 Months

Kenneth Hoffman, Amazon
14 April 2013
  • Summary: Had the Camera for four months, wife used twice. We went to use this month and camera isn't turning on at all. Swapped out battery and did other trouble shopping. Called Panasonic for repair or replacement and was told that unit is out of warranty for labor, but parts will be covered. Hopefully Panasnic will be flexible about fixing camera, since we have only owned for 4 months.

Excellent quality video

Dagmar Miura, Amazon
7 April 2013
  • Summary: Overall, the camera produces excellent-quality video. The anti-shake thing works well, although it took a bit of getting used to; once I knew how it would affect the image, it became intuitive. The anti-shake is easy to turn on and off too, with a dedicated button on the camera. The auto white-balance thing worked extremely well; within a second or two of turning on the camera, it figured out how to compensate for LED lights, florescent lights, and daylight.

Excellent

EAS, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been quite satisfied with this Panasonic camera. I bought it so that I could take indoor movies with just the light that is available (no extra lighting), and it has performed well under these circumstances. My only disappointment is small--it's most robust recording will not work with my Apple computer. But it does have an iFrame setting that can be used with a Mac, and I have found it quite satisfactory both in quality and functionality.
