OK if shooting in the daytime

Coffeehouse shooter, B&H Photo
12 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I was hoping this would have a higher-quality picture than it does. The video screen display is lovely, but the resulting video doesn't come close to the preview. I shoot video in relatively low-light small coffeehouse venues. The camera's resulting video appears out of focus (soft) and with little contrast. Post-processing required. I saw other reviews about being able to hear the zoom control click in the final video. And that is the case.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Poor Image Quality, Poor In Low Light

Had to return this - dissappointed with Panasonic

  • Summary: I really thought the image quality was rather poor with this camcorder. $500 may be a midrange price, but I expected much more. The pictures were not crystal clear, like a fog lens had been on, and the images looked they had been Photoshopped, meaning they were too oversharp and pixelated. Note that I really favor Panasonic products, but was dissappointed with this effort.

Cam good, Wifi horrible

  • Summary: This is my 3rd camcorder in the past few years. The camcorder works great. Takes good video. And has a wider view than the Canon HV20 its replacing. That allows better shots imo. Note: this unit does NOT record in MP4 format! Only AVCHD. I read the specs carefully at Panasonic site, and thought it did MP4 the way they worded it. You can "convert" the AVCHD to MP4 after you take the video, but it takes it down to a tiny resolution, and of course take a long time.

  • Summary: If you have a MAC then you will not be able to use iMovie or Final Cut to export the 1080/50p HD format.
