The Perfect Panasonic For The First Time Film Producer?

Nar2, Ciao
17 September 2013
  • Excerpt: "...seems to offer. At cost the Panasonic NCDCX1 costs from £100 to £140 for its black, daring colour. Perhaps it is generic to call it “daring,” but against so many brands out there and their associated products, as a buyer looking for a first time “simple” camcorder, the Panasonic HX-DC1 by price alone deserves consideration and is the starter model above the water proof 16MP “HX-.WA10,” similarly based on the Sanyo “Xacti,” when Panasonic took the ...
  • 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 .

User Review

Nar2, Ciao
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...

Its Ok

Artylass "Alass", Amazon
9 September 2012
  • Summary: My previous digital cameras include Canon & Nikon. Needing more pixels and flexibility I bought this camcorder to pop in my pocket/handbag and do photos and short videos as required. It fits the bill perfectly, and produces clear photos for me to paint from, plus decently good videos too. Not really being a camera buff, I had to read and reread the plentiful instructions and seem to need and use only 1/2 the functions. However I am well pleased with it.

  • Summary: Bought this camera to go see olly murs and find it amazing good zoom! Clear image sometimes can b unfocused when first zoom in when first recording! Only downside I find is the battery life easily fixed by a spare battery!

Neat and handy

  • Summary: I find the video images to be good but the camera facility while videoing is poor. The picture quality is grainy and I find it difficult to determine if a picture was taken until i look through the files.

Only need a powerfull battery

Guigo, Amazon
13 December 2011
  • Summary: Great camera. I've done 4 stars, because the battery. Only need a powerfull battery. I've ordered a new battery to be able to shoot longer. The original battery lasts about half an hour. It is very little time to record. This is purposeful, these firms do so in order to earn some more money (much more) with these accessories, but what can I do ...

Above average quality for price bracket.

Mrs. Frances A. Waldron, Amazon
9 December 2011
  • Summary: I bought this exact same camcorder towards the end of Sept '11 from Comet, uk with a £6 voucher off @ £113 and used it for just over 4 weeks before giving it to my son as a present. For the price bracket and it can be bought at differing prices upon shopping around, it is quite superior, I have to say. By the way, having done a photography course and passed the exam just over 10 years ago, I know a bit about what constitutes good quality camcorders/cameras.

Keep the wife happy

J. C. Parry "Jarp Cry", Amazon
10 September 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camcorder for my wife to use on our holiday, its small compact and easy to use. I do not like the handle style but my wife says its comfortable to use and the screen can be tilted to any angle, the picture quality is very good and the unit works well in lowlight.
