Summary: I am very pleased with this HD camera and recommend it. My previous camera (also Panasonic) was not HD, so I highly recommend getting a camera with the HD capability. It really makes a difference with the picture quality. Works well. Easy to use and set-up is simple. Included software for video editing is easy to use.
Summary: Video quality is pretty good. The only think I would have like is a charger that is separate from the camera. I need to be able to charge the second battery (purchased separately) while recording because we use the camera for long periods of time (taping wrestling tournaments)
Summary: I purchased this HDC-HS60K camcorder from Adorama Camera in Nov. 22 2010 . After downloading recorded data to my computer , I was erasing the data off the enternal memory and it suddenly locked up . On screen a message read " Control Data Error Detected (HDD) and then to another message "Repairing Data" and there is as far as it goes , it locked up .
Summary: This camera takes great quality video and reasonably good pictures.Unfortunately in the first 4 months I have owned it, I have had to send it back to Panasonic twice because the hard drive froze up and will not power on.The second time I got it back, it only lasted for two days before the same problem arose. Also, it was out of labor warranty by 2 weeks and I was charged $125 in labor to get it fixed, which they didn't even dot..
Summary: My sony handycam died last week so I was in the market for a new video camera to capture memories of my 2 young children. I wanted a good camera but didn't want to spend a ton. I wanted something mid-range. I am also an avid Mac user. I needed something to work with my Mac and Imovie. So glad I found this camera. It is small and packs a punch. Works amazingly with Imovie and Mac.
Summary: Great buy in a little package. I was caught between spending a few thousand dollars for a more professionel model. I am so glad I did. In thinking it through and what I was going to use it for : taking pictures in high places and on long hikes It was plain to see that lugging a lareger package up a moutain was not my fortie'. Iv'e hiked with 80 lb. packs and it is no picnic after a 8 mi. hiuke up in thin air.
Summary: What can I say but WOW! It is so easy to use nad the results are fantastic. We have a new granddaughter and the results are clear and easily viewed on a TV with the provided cables. Unfortunately the software is not usable on a Mac.
Summary: Love this camcorder. boughtr it for the wife for Christmas but I used it alot. fairly easy to start up right away and the picture is really good. the camera really proves itself in good light, looks like a camera that costs alot more shot the video, very high definition. would buy again. the size is impressive, very small yet alot of features.
