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.
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: Purchased this camera in June worked great for 2 months. This camera did shoot very nice video that was easy to get off the camera and edit with the included software. It did feel a bit cheaper than my old Panasonic mini-dv camera and I guess it was.
Apparently this camera increases in value with age!

Summary: Apparently this camera has increased in value as it ages - like a good bottle of wine you might ask. It was £329 when I bought it in Feb 2013. It's a good camera but don't get ripped off as the sellers increase their prices at a whim. I'd look elsewhere on principle.
Summary: Not so much a review on the item itself as I've returned it straight away. I may be missing something in the description but all I received was the camera-no box, manual, charger, leads, etc. SO annoyed!
Summary: per averl apagata 500 e piu euro, la ritengo insufficiente...e buona con la luce intensa, ma se e per questo anche un telefonino fa grandi riprese...nn òa ricomprrei...poi noto che con poca luce, fa quel fastidioso movimento di immagine...bah
