Summary: The camera is great. However, I wanted to use it for making how-to videos, and my recordings are made in a quiet environment. Upon playing back the first few test recordings, I kept hearing this noise, and I wondered if there was something in the room making it . . .
Summary: I got to tell you that if you are looking for the best camcorder ever created by Panasonic this is the one! The low light is the best on the market, sound quality insuperable, very portable, and easy to use.
