Summary: The single still picture taken from this camcorder is blurred and too bright compared to the video or a picture grapped from the recording/recorded video, even on the same scene and light condition. There must be exposure defects from the product. Also the HD video has lower sharpness than Canon or Sony, and is blurred on bright spots on high contrast condition. I think the factory should recall this product.
Summary: Broke very soon after the warrantly failed - these cameras have a common problem where for no reason you get a signal to, "press the reset button", and it never goes away. To fix costs about 280 pounds. From reading online this is a fault that happens a lot (it happened to mine and I'd only used it a few times).
Summary: I bought this camera because it was highly recommended. But I obviously did not do my research well enough. One of my requirements is to be able to email the video. On my previous camcorder (6 years old) I could do this using movie maker or any other movie making software. Alas this is not the case with this format.
Summary: If you are considering purchasing this item be sure you are comparing "apples with apples." The version supplied by Amazon does not come with an SDHC card while others companies do include one. You should factor this in when comparing prices. The lack of an included card is rather infuriating as it means you cannot get get up and working immediatley. Purchasing a card locally is an expensive folloy and therefore requires another day or so waiting on one being delivered.
Summary: Nach reiflicher Überlegung hatte ich mich dazu entschlossen auf die Panasonic HDC-SD 9 EG zurückzugreifen, um meine Sponsion verewigen zu können. Auch der attraktive Preis erleichterte mir diese Entscheidung. Zuhause ausgepackt präsentierte sich mir auf den ersten Blick eine kleine, hübsche und handliche Cam, die leicht in der Hand lag und einen netten Ersteindruck hinterließ.
