Summary: I think I have normal hands but they just don't seem to get along with this unit. Especially if concentrating on the scene and subject. Inherently, my fingers expect to fall on the most-used buttons: start/stop and zoom in/out. Nope.
Summary: I have really enjoyed this camera. It's light, easy to use and takes good videos. The problem I have is with the HD Writer AE 1.5 that comes with the camera. In short - I can't burn a disc and Panasonic hasn't been able to help me with any offer of improved software.
Summary: I purchased this product to take videos of my newborn daughter. Hence, I used this camcorder mostly for taking videos in my house (in January, so not in bright sunlight). I was very disappointed by the video quality.
