WORST product I've ever purchased - not exaggerating

Val "Val72484", Amazon
22 January 2012
  • Summary: UPDATE: If I could give this product negative stars I would. As you can see from my original review (see below) things did not start off smoothly, and before a month had passed this piece-of-you-know-what stopped working all together.

Cheap Construction, Unreliable, and Warranty Short

Florida TechGuy, Amazon
16 July 2011
  • Summary: Cons: The quality of construction and reliability of the Panasonic TA-1 Ultrathin HD Pocket Camcorder are poor and not worth the investment. The quality of this device does feel and look cheap. The shell is flimsy. The buttons have painted labels that will wear off quickly.

DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA

R. Iyashere, Amazon
9 July 2011
  • Summary: This camera has been grossly mis-represented as a rival for the Flip. No matter how large a memory card you buy, the camera only records for 30 minutes! If you are a performer like myself and want to record for longer periods of time, you better have someone there to press record every time this...

GFlimsy Case & Buttons, won't hold charge

E. Page, Amazon
26 May 2011
  • Summary: Since I posted this, the camera crashed. It isn't recognized by my PC, and the battery won't hold a charge. I'm amazed at this product in two ways. First, I'm surprised that such a small device can take such great photos and video. It's the size of a credit card.

Quality Defects

V. Harper, Amazon
14 April 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this device and an Flip HD on the same day. Gave one to my daughter, kept this one. She has no problems. I have had nothing but problems, with no response from two contacts to Panasonic Technical Support. Yeah, this is terrible. WHy open tickets on their site if they are just ignored?!?

Disappointed!

Hotlil57, Amazon
28 January 2011
  • Summary: I was excited once I unpackaged this camcorder, but with further inspection and a test video once I received the sd card, not impressed. Playback volume is horrible. The battery/sd card cover kept sliding down; does not lock in place. The look is nice, but that's it. Returning for a refund.

It is therefore a complete waste of money

S. Westergaard, Amazon
17 October 2014
  • Summary: Am unable to use as no way of charging it as no charger sent. I thought we could plug it into the computer to charge from the USB, but this did not work. It is therefore a complete waste of money. I wanted to give it 0 stars.
