WORST product I've ever purchased - not exaggerating

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.
Summary: I purchased this Camera on special Jan. 2011. I never liked the on and off switch. The compartments kept opening up. It felt like a you put it together camera. I do admit the pictures and video was pretty good. Living alone and seldom using it all of a sudden it just stopped working.
Summary: I use many camcorders. I have been able to use a few flips, Kodak zi8's and zi10's. They all work pretty well. This camcorder is not worth messing with. I tied this once and it soon blacked out. I think I got maybe 15 shots. I have 3 fully charged batteries, none work.
Summary: I purchased this item at the end of May 2011, I did my research and when to the actual Panasonic website. I thought I was getting a good by. I just took it out 7/10/2011 to use it and It will not work with my Macbook Pro as far as using the Facebook and Youtube uploads.
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...
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.
Summary: After few days of use (with maximum care) the front lens started to show some scratches and damaged areas; in a couple of week all the lens coating was completely destroyed and the cam became unusable.
Summary: This is the worst camera I ever bought!!, the camera stopped working at the first time I used it (recorded only 15 minutes and no longer works, the screen went white). I would not recommend this product
