Decent Camera, Good in Low Light As Expected

C., Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: It's good enough I suppose. I'm using it to film dance performances and it indeed has decent sensitivity in low light situations. The only thing I don't like is how the video is interlaced. I'm just picky because in reality I want to get an expensive camera but can't afford one at the moment. Don't let my "good enough" review deter you. You'll probably like this camera.

Great

  • Summary: This is an awesome HD camera. We used it a lot when we first got it (for weddings and stuff) but admittedly it's been lying around with no use for a while as I just tend to use the camera on my phone now. I did have an issue a few months after purchase where it just stopped working...I had to sent it to Panasonic to be rebuilt but luckily we didn't lose any data. I wish it saved videos in a different format too.

Overall very nice. Wish I'd opted for the external mic though...

  • Summary: This has been a very reliable camcorder that takes both great video and still pics. Nice to be able to choose either internal hard disk or SD card as sotrage medium. I do wish I'd opted for the slightly more spendy version that supports an external microphone. The built-in mics work very well, but there have been times I've wanted to fit a subject with a mic or record from a source with dedicated mic to get proper acoustics.

  • Summary: This is easy to use. The battery life is a lot longer than we expected. The HD picture looks like it is professional.

  • Summary: I never had a camcorder before and choosing one was not easy. This camcorder works great, i like that it has great memory, light weight and has a good mega-pixel. Also it is affordable. I would recommend this camcorder to use for all your special moments.

I would own about five of them if I could!

  • Summary: where would I start. as for the camcorder it is very easy with operations (read the manual) and the picture (film) quality is worth more then the cost of the camera. can buy extra backup batterie's (ebay) at a very reasonable price as well as filters. the attachments are large with what can be used on the camcorder, wide angle & telephoto lenses & a simple 12.00$ lens hood (ebay) will help make shooting creative & fun for anyone.

Good quality video but video editing software could be better

Vikram Rawat "vik", Amazon

  • Summary: Pros - Video Quality in well lighted areas is great - my rating 9/10. - Video Quality in low light is 6/10. It could be better - Video plays without any lag on VLC player or Windows media player (m2ts files) without any tweaks or software installation. You can copy the videos to any hard dish without the need to use "Import function" in the "HD Camera AE - Panasonic software" - I am getting Battery life of around 2 hrs.

  • Summary: I have been using it for about a year. Not an issue so far. One feature I overlooked when buying - the camera does not have audio input. Not its fault though ...

Have had for over a year

JC believer, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this for over a year. I believe the increase in COLOR quality with the 3mos system (read up on that) is really the biggest asset of this HD camcorder. It splits the color into 3 components and the results are excellent color for the video. I rated battery life high because I bought an original panasonic 2.5 hour battery from a hong kong seller for $32. Original battery is about 90 minutes if you don't do a lot of viewing of what you just shot.

Not Mac compatible

Karen Saephanh "Karekaren09", Amazon
9 March 2011
  • Summary: This camcorder is really great, but the fact that there is no alternative button to use when the LCD screen is glitchy is not good. I had dinged it on the ground as I was falling from the chair, when it was still in its case. Luckily, the camera was functional, but the LCD was not functioning. I could see what I was doing, but couldn't change the settings.
