Great HD Camcorder!!!

Donald M. Falls, Amazon
15 May 2009
  • Summary: I got this camcorder from Best Buy (sorry Amazon)... All I can say this camcorder works can be read perfectly from the Playstation 3. AVCHD type of camcorder for Panasonic was not getting enough support from NLE editing softwares like Vegas 8 Pro, PowerDirector 6, and etc. It works with latest version Pinnacle Studio 11 Ultimate but need too much computer power like Quad core processor, more RAMs for video editing.

Very good HD image. Has some usability issues

A. K., Amazon
15 May 2009
  • Summary: The image is great looking and so is the sound. The usability problems are the following: 1. The AC adapter plugs into a port which is under the battery...so you have to pop the battery off to use AC power. 2. The battery charges on the AC adapter and not while on the camera. 3. The camera requires AC power to be connected when connecting to the computer. 4.

Sony HDR-SR11 vs. Panasonic HDC-HS9 comparison

Henry Thoreau "bob", Amazon
15 May 2009
  • Summary: I write this review because I wish it had been written during the time I was purchasing my camcorder. I will summarize this review between the Sony HDR-SR11 vs. Panasonic HDC-HS9 as basically a toss up, but the little things of Sony leaned me to the SR11. First, let me say that I really did not want to buy Sony HDR-SR11, granted a Bravia TV is my LCD of choice, but I cannot stand their proprietary memory.

Taking it back

L. Tucker, Amazon
15 May 2009
  • Summary: I've had this camcorder for almost a week, and like any new gadget, I've been using it quite a bit. Here are my thoughts. It fits great in the hand and is easy to handle. It has a small size for a Hard Drive camcorder and easy to shoot and hold. Image stablization works well and the zoom is good.

not enough info on computer specs....

J. Pineda, Amazon
4 December 2008
  • Summary: bought this camera and it works great, the only downside was that i now have to invest in a newer pc due to the fact that older pc will not be able to handle full hd editing with avchd format(quad core recommended to natively edit,dual core if you transfer to different format), and support for this format has been slow to come. one cool feature is that you can use different types of cool filters and wide angle lenses on it with 37mm threads.
