Panasonic HX-DC1: A Perfect Pocket Sized Panasonic For Film Productions!
23 September 2013
Summary: 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: 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!
Excerpt: I really love the design of this machine. I fell in love with it the moment i saw it. It is like a hair drier, speed gun all clubbed together. The build quality as well doesn't disappoint. Talking about the image quality and video quality. Due to the ergonomic design the handling is super easy. But the only greatest thing also does carry a flaw. Holding your arm for sometie at 90 degrees is really really difficult. Otherwise, it is 16 mp hence funcions quite well.
Excerpt: With a 3 inch LCD display, this one has a very sleek design with great quality all around. The picture quality is great, and it even has a flash, equivalent to that of a point and shoot camera. It even has a voice recorder built into it, which makes it a perfect value for money buy.
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.
The Panasonic HX-DC1 - a very good all-around pocket camera

Summary: I was looking for an HD camcorder for weeks, and after hours of researching, i found this cool little camera. I read a few reviews of this product, and i decided to stick with this one and buy it. The aesthetics of the camera are very sleek and nice looking. The quality of thins build of the camera is apparent all around. All the pictures that i have taken came out very crisp and clear. This camera has a flash in it too.
Summary: This item was purchased to record my grandaughters first christmas etc etc,, great piece of kit, but i'm glad i bought an extra battery as a back up would highly recommend it for the right price.
