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. However, almost right out of the box, I noticed skin-tone color would change from a blueish tint to a yellowish tint in low light conditions.
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. What an idiotic thing to do!!! I shut off all the nice features, including facial recognition, but am left with one icon I cannot get rid of. Panasonic should know better than this.
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. There is an option to control microphone level (which could potentially reduce how much white noise and fan noise is picked up) but the option is not available when shooting in full auto mode.
