Excerpt: Picture quality is great (for 17 mb/s mpg4) both on HD & SD. Great "Intelligent Contrast" . Bad "Auto WB". nice having many WB presets. Great image stabilization. Very bad Audio Distortion. when you are on ambient with very loud audio, not because the camcorder is defective but because it's very audio sensitive, even if you put the "Set+AGC" on -18 you will still risk a lot of distortion, if you set lower than -18 you will risk losing a lot of low audio.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom
Cons: Poor In Low Light, Poor Sound, Poor Still Image
Excerpt: I bought this product for weading shooting, and it is a good deal for full HD camcoder. It is little hard to ajust on your shoulder(at least for me), but it is very light weigt and easy to cary around. 32gb memory card lets you record for 4.5 or 5 hours depending on video format. Baterry is also aproximately 5 hours. I bought a light for it and spare memory cards and batteries and everything is good to go. I am using in Europe.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound
A camcorder small in price but big in performance!
3 September 2012
Summary: To be honest when I first saw this product on line I was taken aback because of it's price and 'professional' looks. The manufacturing specifications blew me away and when the camcorder arrived it was immediately put into action. The picture clarity and colour is well balanced. The microphone pick up sensitive and indeed the additional external microphone came as a bonus. What I like about this camera is it's user friendly quality especially the touch screen capability.
Summary: Panasonic camcorder always knew fascinate us with technology, the best electronic products and favorable prices in the market, each has provided the opportunity that is passionate about excellent wedding movies with better quality and less costs. No one better than the Panasonic camcoders can not realize anyone wishes to coax the maximum quality versus a modest price .
Excerpt: Anyone who has used an ENG camera before would know the few issues that are in every of them. The battery life and weight. My Sony PDW700 battery last not more than 100mins every change and weighing 6kg. Although the recording format is far superior than MDH1, but when you found a workflow to automate the conversion of AVCHD to an editable format, you will be very delighted to enjoy the benefit this camera brought to you.
Excerpt: I have just shot my first HD wedding video with the MDH1. I am very happy with the image quality, which compares very favorably with footage from my faithful Sony MiniDV camera. I used a 16Gb SDHC card which allowed four hours of shooting at HX (third highest)resolution. The camera doesn't really sit properly on my shoulder, mainly due to the eye piece design, but it's not a major problem due to the very low weight.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
Excerpt: If somebody doubt,just jump on YouTube,there are few examples and compares with more expensive models.Picture is really good,handling is easy(touch screen is cool), all in all,it looks, we got more music than we payed for, in this product.Only thing I can antagonize is no XLR inputs for mic,it will give additionally dose severity,but despite that I will give five stars,and full compliment to Panasonic on this camera.Recommendation: amateur,half amateur and professional...
