Summary: This is a good and affordable camcorder. It works great and the quality of images is Wowwww. BUT, if you plan to do lots of filming at night, you should drop this and go for a higher model. This one works best for daylight filming.
Summary: This was bought for a gift.It has been used quite a few times since it was bought with no problems.Has a great zoom and real clear picture.It does everything they say its capable to do.Would buy this again if I need one.
Summary: This is my first video camera and it is so user friendly! I am usually a Sony or Canon fan, but with all the specs and good reviews on this little camera, I tried it and I couldn't beat the price either! I record mostly sporting events and action, so I needed a camera that wouldn't be too shaky and that had a good zoom. The IS feature is wonderful with the zoom and the picture is always clear with great color both indoor and outdoor.
Summary: Situation This is my first camcorder – only second digital camera of any sort – so wanted something of a starter/beginner/learning unit to get into the process before jumping in whole hog. Wanted it for: •videos of the new grandsons •wildlife videos & stills – needed/wanted lots of zoom and quiet operation. •good enough stills for computer or TV display – not necessarily for large prints Comments •Have had the camera since the end of April.
Summary: I thought Panasonic was a name to be trusted - never again! I bought this camera as a gift for my husband when we had our first child and it worked great for about 6 months. Out of nowhere, I started getting ERROR messages and the picture became unclear, it would shut off unexpected and warn be I would lose all my data - pictures and videos of our daughter's only memories!
