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: 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
11 January 2012
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.
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 ...
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.
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.
