Summary: The camera is pretty nice and the functionality is okay to use. My issue with this is the fact that it only records in a format that is specific to Panasonic. Which is just stupid in my opinion. The camera itself is very good. Nice and easy to use.
Summary: This camera is quite pricey for a consumer camera, but I purchased it about 3 years ago for its many features, including the optical viewfinder (great in sunlight) that few consumer cameras have.
Summary: I really like this camera. I bought it for church to be a live camera to other rooms in the building. The colors in our dimmly lit sanctuary really pop. However, I have found that most of the onscreen displays for viewfinder are also on the component and HDMI outputs and CANNOT be shut off.
Summary: Video quality is outstanding. The image stabilization is fantastic. Low light performance is great. However, when it comes to audio quality, the camera picks up a lot of white noise AND on top of that there is a very noticable and irritating fan noise.
