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.
Summary: I am using this cam for weeks now and found it easy to use but it has some major flaws.It has no view finder and i thought its right step in forward direction who needs old technology to squeeze eye ball against lens.i realized this design flaw when i used it out door for shooting a game and then again for a cruise.I was sitting in game with sun right behind me and let me tell you,I wasn`t able to view a thing through lcd screen and same thing happened when boating as...
Summary: The video take outdoor is clear and beautiful, It's really HD, I play it on 52 inch television,it's beautiful.Unfortunately, I'm looking for the camcorder with high quality video indoor or low light, this one make me disappointed. It's get grainy with the light indoor, even with sunlight in the room.
Summary: Pros: Awesome image quality and color. LCD screen surprised me that I could see it in daylight very easily. Touch controls work very well for me using the stylus. My previous two camcorders were Sony DVD. This Panasonic HD blows them out of the water! Cons: 1) Not as advertised 2) Video editing software is barely adequate, and very spartan in its features. Summary: Panasonic, on their own webpage with their own product flyer claimed this camera had Time Lapse capability.
