Summary: I like to buy Panasonic products, as they offer me good quality at afordable price! Only have to be carefull with temperature changes (example: when you are in a air conditioned area and moves to the heat, the lens gets fogs).
Summary: I've had this camera for a year now and love the style, build quality and how compact the unit is. If you search for more info on this camera you will see there is a white balance issue that is noticeable when panning an area with different lighting. Its the main drawback of this camera.
Summary: Great hand held video camera. Lightweight, maybe too much, but definitely does not tire you out when filming a long time. Good quality and simple to use basic feature. Other features required extensive reading and practice.
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.
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.
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.
