Nearly Professional Results

Lazlo, Panasonic
22 February 2014
  • Summary: I got this camcorder just before Christmas. I shot a couple of minutes in very poor light to familiarize myself with the camera. With no lighting from the camera or other sources results were grainy and disappointing. I would have given up. However, next morning I shot another three minute clip in moderate, hazy SoCal light. WOW! I couldn't believe my eyes. It looked like HDTV! Hand held, the shots were stable and focusing seemed to follow my eye movements.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to use, Exceeded expectations, Convenient, fantastic colors in good light, accurate focus, still quality, very much worth the high cost
  • Cons: no easy fit for strap

Not as good as a DSLR

Frank, B&H Photo
7 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I use this for instructional videos that I post on YouTube. Before this camera, I was using a Canon T3 (720p), which does not do autofocus while in movie mode, so that I had to manual focus every time I changed the view.<br />The autofocus on the V720 is a lot more convenient, but I found the picture quality less, both in terms of color rendering and sharpness, even though the V720 does 1080p.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good battery life, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Disappointing Image Quali, Poor Still Image

Basic Function Review

Sam T, B&H Photo
27 January 2014
  • Excerpt: This camera outputs some really great looking video if you're on a budget, and the built-in mic isn't half bad. Some of the options and controls are not intuitively found, so you ought to give the manual a good read through if you want to find out every trick this pony has. I'm far from a video expert, and there are a lot of features of this camera I haven't, and likely won't ever, use. That said, I'm satisfied with the files this camera records.
  • Pros: Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Poor In Low Light

Delevery was very very late.

Rebecca Carlton, Amazon

  • Summary: I order this on Dec. 11th for Christmas , finally got it on Jan. 14th and was used (I ordered a new unit). Everything had been opened, finger prints everywhere and no battery charger. I'm not opposed to used items but I didn't order a used unit. I requested a replacement and it arrive (finally) yesterday. Guess what? It was used also but I'm tired of messing with Amazon, never again. As far as the camera I'm very impressed.

  • Summary: I did lot of research before I bought this product. (compared with Sony and Canon). But this one stands out for a good prize range. Amazing product for still pictures and video. I can recommend this to buy.

Good value

Kamaaina, B&H Photo
10 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Has a bunch of nice features such as image stabilization, 'level' horizon indicator, time lapse capability. The accessory 'cold' shoe is thoughtfully placed at the camcorder's rear so an attached zoom microphone does not over hang the field of view. Video quality is pretty good.<br /><br />Biggest drawback is the absence of a headphone jack and short battery life. The larger capacity V380 battery costs $100+. Ouch!
  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality
  • Cons: Limited battery life

A nice thing in a Small Package

6 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I got this camera to keep with me all the time... so I can shoot anything that interests me. It's not the best in low light, but I didn't expect it to be. The onboard light helps a lot.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Sound, Great Zoom
  • Cons: Poor In Low Light

  • Excerpt: Good camera for the price. Wifi and home monitoring works ok. Needs strong connection. I would consider purchasing this camera again. Some reviewers complained about the touchscreen, but I haven't had any problems navigating with it.
