Summary: Great for the price. Good low light, decent stills, fantastic optical zoom, and decent digital zoom (Only used when needed, however. Everyone I've shown this camera to, they've been impressed by the sharp details and cinematic quality of this camera. The optical stabilization is fantastic too.
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: 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.
Summary: Purchased this camcorder after reading hundreds of reviews. Took several hours to read manual and learn all the different things this camcorder can do. Have used it to record grandchildrens birthdays. This unit did a excellant job of recording in low light and does beautiful job on outdoor videos.
