Excellent picture quality but misleading Wi-Fi support for remote control
28 September 2013
Summary: If it wasn't for the remote control limitation that I will get into in a moment, I would have given this camcorder 5 stars. Picture quality is excellent. Plenty of features. Easy to use. Lightweight.
Summary: the Panasonic camera takes great videos and still pic's the problem is it came with no cables ,can't transfer pic's from camera can,t watch video on tv or ac adapter for power,had to buy cables for and additional 50.00 read the details before you buy!
Summary: I don't have much experience with camcorders, much less digital ones, so my review may reflect this as I don't have anything to compare it to other than my Sony Camcorder which still used tapes.
disapointed- will not recommend to any of my friends

Summary: my friend has one and so I ordered one exactly like his. It did not come with the same things as his and is not working correctly. He's looked at it but can not figure out the camera's problems.
Summary: I was all set to use the camera and found that the card was not included. Had to go out and buy one. Seems a little lame to me, and really disappointing upon opening the box, wanting to use the camera..
Incorrect Auto White Balance. Terrible auto settings. Noisy low light performance.

Summary: The Auto White balance on this cam is broken. Only when I use the manual options (sun, shade, tungsten,etc.) I can get acceptable color balance. Or try using a grey card for custom white balance. The automatic IA and IA+ modes are not great either.
The static image is still bad compare to normal camera
23 July 2013
Summary: I used it intensively for about half a year now. The static image is still bad compare to normal camera. But it is a video camera. Video and photo quality is much better than the sony one in the same price range. Microphone has reasonable quality also.
Summary: This camcorder takes great quality video but was released without the availability of optional spare batteries (3 week backorder). The battery lasts about 1 hour and there is no way to charge it without an outlet.
