Summary: I bought this camcorder as a replacement for a Flip camcorder. First this has many more features than the Flip. Flip already stopped making camcorders where Panasonic is a long established company that will stand behind it's products. I also have a full featured digital camcorder and this little camcorder has some of the features of the full featured one. The quality of the video is as good as my other camcorder.
Summary: I was looking for an HD Camera/Camcorder, and after hours of researching, I found this cool little gadget. after reading numerous reviews, I decided to go with this one. First off, I got the camera a week earlier than what the estimated date was. Secondly, its a very sleek device with great quality all around. The pictures come out crisp and clear, and even has a flash, equivalent to that of a point and shoot camera.
Summary: Great little camcorder, very simple to use & no need to plug in to your computer to charge like some others..What was great help for us to decide to purchased it was reading the on line Owner's Manual. [...
Summary: Great camera , small and very portable, feels great while taking video or pictures. There is other two models more expensive but Im not planing to take any under water video and the specs of the next model to me personally wasn't worth the extra $$$. Compatible with my Mac and iVideo. Great product ....there are out there more expensive ones but if you are the regular Joe just trying to keep memories of your family this camera is just fine.
Summary: Im am very pleased indeed with both the item and the seller. camcorder came with all booklet and leads etc. I have tried it out only to test at the minute., but it is working fine from what I can tell. So am very pleased as I bought this in a used/good condition, and it is. Great price so I think I have bagged a great bargain...
The Perfect Panasonic For The First Time Film Producer?
17 September 2013
Excerpt: When I returned from London and wondered what video reviews I would be making, I realised that out of all the cameras I have, the one featured on my Samsung Galaxy Ace is probably the best for quick and easy access. Although Samsung make excellent cameras in general, their compact camcorders consist of a much larger range that I didn’t really want to own and though the camera on my Smartphone is excellent, the worst aspect of it is that it seems to pick up dust even...
Pros: Compact camcorder, good large screen for its size, keen pricing, good quality, some nifty features
Cons: No carry case or SD card supplied, set button could be larger, battery life .
Summary: This camera is obviously meant as a point and shoot, fully automatic fun camera and it generally fits the bill very well but it does have one or two niggles as well. Good points - Great picture quality outdoors. Very easy to handle and fits easily into your pocket or bag when out and about. Very light and compact. Good quality screen. Good auto exposure and auto focus. There's a manual focus over-ride (fidley though) and a sort of manual exposure (menu driven).
Summary: Bought this to replace old bulky equipment. Records well and easy to use menus,but be warned.........you will need a really powerful computer to transfer to DVD.I had to replace my original and very trustworthy computer with a more powerful one, and also running Windows 7. I can now record to DVD using the programme that comes with this version of Windows.
