Summary: The audio and video on this device are incredible. We bought it so that we could faithfully record our first child's first year. We had experience with less expensive Sony cameras, a Go Pro, the video function on our Canon Powershot and video shot on our cell phones.
Summary: Love this camera. I've always wanted a pro camera but don't have the budget for it. This camera is an excellent substitute. It has many of the inputs I wanted for mic. the Zoom is great. the HD quality is amazing. And I personal LOVE the anti-shake or the stabilization Panasonic is known for.
love the high definition and not to have to use SDHC memory cards

Summary: I waited for several months to have this type of video camera.I was hoping they would make a high definition one but recording on a hard drive not flash cards.I own a PANASONIC AG-HMC40 high definition video camera and it records on 1080/60p and I thought that was a good definition video camera...
Summary: An outstanding very user friendly cameras. I switched from Sony to Panasonic and was very happy with user friendliness, powerful zoom , and outstanding photos-still, worth the buy. I need to learn some more features on it. Very compact and excellent memory capacity. Worth and very happy about it.
Summary: The only other camcorder on the market that could compete with this cam is the Canon HF G10 which is a bit more expensive and also lacks 1080/60p function. Other than that, this cam takes the cake for image quality and as always, low lighting performance. Panasonic has really done a great job.
Summary: Purchased this camera for a trip later this summer. Had to try it out and learn some of the features before hand. Takes great pictures and hi-def videos. Where it truly excels is in low light. Used this setting to take a video in a dark room and the room looked as though it was well lit.
Great quality video - with just enough bells and whistles

Summary: We got this for our son who is taking a video editing class at school. He needed a higher quality camera than the ones at the big box stores and we didn't want to spend big bucks - this was the perfect solution. It has everything he needed (and more) and we have really enjoyed his compilations.
Summary: Although I'm no expert, I think this is a great product. The one thing I don't like is that Panasonic has no Mac version of the included software and upon querying them about it, didn't seem to care to. Wake up Panasonic! I managed to work around the problem but why should I have to?
Just had to update my review of the Camcorder after 1 year of use

Summary: I bought this camera last year and am so well pleased with every thing it is advertised to do. Last Saturday took the cake though I was sitting on concrete bleachers watching my grandson play foot ball, while setting on the top about 30 feet up my other grandson decided to slap the camera causing it...
Summary: Got this product about a few weeks ago. Only used it a little. So far I am happy with it. I think is was a very good purchase for the price. Still learning things about it. I would recommend it for purchase. Very Happy with it.
