  • Summary: Don't use it that much or at an advanced level, but it is light and compact, and has worked fine for several years (more than I can say about past camcoders!)

A great camera, but how much does it weigh?

E.D.S "budget consumer", Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: I've had this camera for a while now (mostly used for family events), but will start shooting web videos with it in a few weeks. It is worth noting if you are looking to buy a stedicam for it (like the flycam) pay no attention to the Panasonic website or literature that pegs the camera's weight at a...

Good Camera

  • Summary: Good camera. The files that it stores are in .mkv, so if you plan on using it for shooting movies, you will need to get a convertor software of some kind.

  • Summary: I'm not a prof. videographer by any means. Coming from using a Sony Mini-DVD camcorder from about 3.5 years ago, this is a fantastic upgrade! With that disclosure, I'm very happy with it so far. The clarity is amazing and general ease of use is great.

Very Happy With This Camcorder

DAVID W SHENK "Julian Dave", Amazon

  • Summary: I had no intention of buying a camcorder over $450, however, after viewing test videos on youtube, I was sold on this one. Video from this camera is STUNNING. Some lower priced camcorders have very decent video as well, but lack something that this one has.

Great camera, good features, BUT OOPS......!

Linda R "randyrip", Amazon

  • Summary: I have worked in television for 21 years and now produce video for a public agency. I purchased the HDC-SD800 because Panasonic eliminated all the useless frills on the higher-priced models. This camera has the same lens, MOS chip, and useful features needed, but at a much lower price.

Good Picture

T. Burkett "TB", Amazon
11 August 2011
  • Summary: The Quality of the picture is excellent. My Largest disappointment was that there is no audio input, so I can connect my wireless microphone to the camera. I will have to record to an audio recording device and then go to all the bother of synching the audio and video in post production.

great almost Pro camera!

Daniel Meek, Amazon
13 June 2011
  • Summary: I had been waiting a long time to find a camera with high visual fidelity without all of the consumer oriented junk that comes with most home cameras, and this is it. I will go from the most annoying problems/features, and move up from there.
