Summary: The picture quality is phenomenal....IF you have really good lighting. We've been using this to record our football games under the lights and have had great success in newer fields with spectacularly bright lighting.
Summary: It is a good camcorder with lots of features but I was not very happy with it.In daylight and bright lights the video picture quality is good but indoor video shoots in auto mode was grainy.So if you like using auto mode then in low light you have to compromise with the video quality.If you are...

Summary: I first purchased the Sony HDR-CX110, in the same price/feature class as this Panasonic. If you are considering each camera, here's what I can tell you. Be forewarned that I have only had today to play with the Panasonic, and I have only used each model in Automatic mode.
Great video camera but poor software and zero service
17 October 2010
Summary: I'm new to video so was attracted to this camera's price and claimed simplicity. The camera does everything and more besides. I can't fault it. However the supplied software will not burn DVDs. Perhaps the problem is with my PC but a brand new HP Pavilion dv7 3112sa running Windows 7 ought to be OK.
Summary: My review of the Panasonic SD60 is based on a price of £350. The camcorder was purchased to record high quality video and capture still photos all in one device (rather than carrying both digital camera and camcorder around). Overall, it seems to be a good product.
