Poor video quality

S. Yang "New Amazonian", Amazon
28 April 2008
  • Summary: I own a Panasonic digital camera which I enjoy very much. it takes great pictures and it beats Nikon, Sony and Canon in many aspects. Despite my satisfaction with the camera, I did not think of Panasonic when I was on the market for a high defiction camcorder. So I came across the SD9 and was surprised by the low price as by reading the specifications: 3CCD, full HD at 1080p, 24p film mode, it appears to be a very high quality camcorder.

  • Summary: Summary Pro's: Picture quality is good in ideal conditions. Good image stablisation. Con's: Microphones too sensitive, can suffer from same SD Card beep problem as other Panasonic camcorders, photo's are poor. Picture quality in anything other than idea conditions poor, build quality average, buttons fiddly.

Shutter failure

User: User 9001, Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: Bought for holiday use only. Was fine for first two holidays (totalling three weeks). Midway through next holiday shutter failed whilst shut. Don't expect such basic failures after only three and a half weeks use.

My 1st Panasonic mistake

Lithoman "Mal", Amazon
2 January 2009
  • Summary: I have Panasonic TV, DMR EX78HD/DVD recorder, microwave oven and Lumix FZ18 all pretty good and reliable. This Camcorder is different. I have used video cameras for 25 years, having gone through portable VHS, Video 8, VHS-C, Mini DV from Sony, Fuji and JVC. The SD9 is a mistake, very light weight with basic operations by the right thumb. At first it appears to fit the hand snugly but in use becomes uncomfortable and causes cramping of the hand.

Brilliant Camera Just Be Careful if You Are a Mac User

Mr. Paul J. Gullett "longmang", Amazon
17 March 2008
  • Summary: I am mildly disappointed as the camera is great, easy to use with a great picture. But it doesn't work well with either iMovie or Final Cut Express, I can't comment on its PC capabilities. I am hoping that Panasonic and Apple get together and resolve the issues, neither seem to be interested at the moment.

Schönwetter Kamera

Wolfgang K., Amazon
8 May 2009
  • Summary: Ich hatte diese Kamera hauptsächlich wegen des unschlagbar günstigen Preises für eine AVCHD-Markenkamera bestellt. Ausserdem war ich gespannt auf den 5.1 Ton. Ich habe in den letzten 20 Jahren alle Technologiesprünge von VHS-C über Hi8 und DV mitgemacht, denke also dass ich einige Erfahrung habe.

leider billiges Plastikspielzeug mit "Schönwetter" HD

benji, Amazon
2 September 2008
  • Summary: Das erste was einem an diesem Produkt auffält, wenn man den Amazon Karton geöffnet hat, ist das Design. Nun ist das ja leider eine Trend und Geschmacksache, größtenteils lässt sich aber sagen, dass der Camcorder aus billigen Materialien verarbeitet wurde hach wie toll "Piano Lakierung". Auf dem Camcorder kann man also nicht nur seine Videos archivieren sondern auch die Fingerabdrücke und Kratzer.

Schade, aber das ist keine Qualität!

Emigrator "esse quam videri", Amazon
5 August 2008
  • Summary: Die Kamera wurde heute geliefert; also auspacken, Akku laden, Anleitung lesen, Vorfreude genießen, Akku in den Camcorder und filmen. Dank opt. Bildstabilisator schön ruhige Aufnahmen, die auf dem Display auch wunderschön wiedergegeben werden. Dann an den PC: Die mitgelieferte Software HD-Writer 2.5E installiert und den Camcorder angeschlossen. Videos kopiert auf PC, dann mal als MPEG2 konvertiert. So weit, so gut.
