Summary: Upscaled 720p footage from a Flip camera looks better than the 1080 footage from this camera. Colors are too saturated, footage a bit too compressed; I'd rather deal with the expense and hassle of tape or spend $800 less for a new Flip HD.
Summary: I purchased this HD Camcorder and I have been using it for around three months. Yes, I agree in low light it really doesn't have the greatest picture however. What I paid for this is around the same as I paid for my old JVC and this thing blows it away. 16/9 widescreen. The stills look great.
Summary: I just bought this camera. Does anyone else have a problem using the cursor button? I feel I have to use a fingernail and even then I can't seem to get it to work. And I agree about the low light problem. Very grainy.
Summary: Setting it up is extra important for successful recordings, as the features are extensive it is important to RTM. I use a name brand 8gb SDHC class 6 card, I can get several hours of video on it, I do recommend a 16gb class 6 to allow 4hrs + of shooting The battery lasts about 4 hrs +/- as well.
Pros: No tape or HDD's to go bad or get damaged with shock, small, very lightweight, travels well in a backpack, comfortable in your hand. It takes very nice high quality movies in HD and regular formats.. iMovie imports movies from it easily. Novice users can take great movies with little or no traini...
Cons: Doesn't pan well, you must pan slowly to allow the camera to fully focus. The manual says it works with class 4 cards but I found video replay tended to be choppy. Limited HD options for mac's. The microphone is really sensitive in wind. but... there is a setting that compensates for that (once a...
Summary: Comments about Panasonic Palmcorder HDC-SD9 High Definition Digital Camcor: My only beef is that it's so tiny it might be easy to lose. Maybe I'm just used to more size for video cameras. It fits nicely in the pocket of cargo pants. It takes amazing video for a home camera.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Simple Controls, Versatile
Summary: I really enjoy this camera, its replacing a dvd camcorder that I always had trouble with and im quite happy with the purchase. With the proper light and settings, the 1080i HD picture is amazing. Its great for families to be able to see your children in high-def.
Pros: Superb light shooting, fits comfortably even in a big guy like mes hand, lots of extras like low light, face recognition so you can get the best video.
Cons: The joystick on the side is a bit tempermental and small, shooting in low light without the low light filter on produces noise and the quality seems to dip quite a bit.
Pros: I bought this for its size and the improved image quality over NTSC based formats. I have used it extensively in a small soft lens case as a holster on back pack straps in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and recently on a climb of Mount Kilimanjaro. The images have been acceptably stabl...
Summary: I 've read a lot of reviews before purchasing this camcorder. Excellent video in sun light, even overall it 's a little bit yellowish to my taste. Amazon is best price, and they refund me the difference when the price went lower in within 30 days after purchase. Low light is OK.
