Summary: This is a great little family camera. I used it to video Christmas morning of my little boy taking things out of his stocking and I was able to record and take still pictures at the same time! They didn't look super clear but clear enough. We took this to the beach and into the water with us and captured amazing video of our baby's first time in the ocean.
Summary: Pro: this camera takes outstanding HD quality Video under good lighting conditions, I purchased it for the purpose of using it at Blizzard Beach Water park Florida and Snorkeling at Castaway Cay Bahamas during our Disney vacation, the results are beyond my expectation, the quality of videos under 60p frame rate are outstanding, editing those videos using Sony Vegas Pro and writing them on Blue ray is near phenomenal, I had planned to purchase one of the professional line...
Summary: When my Flip Camcorder died on me (which I didn't care for anyway), I purchased this little gem. I also purchased an extra battery and charger (which is a must if you have this camera). Picture quality is great, color is excellent, HD=A+, easy to operate, and most importantly, getting the video to my computer is quick and easy, although I haven't figured out how to delete the video clips in the camera via the computer software yet. Still working on that.
Great product, awsome quality, durable and waterproof

Summary: This is well built, i catch catfish with my bare hands and this camcorder takes great footage, withstands any depth of water i get into and is quite stylish.. dont fall for the cheap knock off when you can have good equipment, cause good equipment will work when you need it the most..
Great features at a great price. A solid replacement for the Xacti line

Summary: I am a prior owner of a Sanyo Xacti (Sanyo was purchased by Panasonic) and we loved it -too bad I left it on the roof of my car! This is a solid and much improved replacement. Despite what some have complained about, I find the button and the toggle stick easy to use. It takes fantastic HD video and 14 megapixel pictures. Plus it is super fast to turn on and start shooting video. That was the biggest complaint about my Xacti is that it took way to long to turn on.
Summary: this camera is perfect excelent quality, excelent movies, excelent pictures, and all is perfect, is the best video camera that i have get it, because no is only video the pictures 14 mp is excelent y all in one, water proof, full HD, only that i recomended buy an extra battery, because you want used again, and again.
Summary: Love the camera. HD quality is stunning. Learning curve was minimal because all options are very easy to get to and to use. Button placement prevents using the wrong button at the wrong time. Lots of features I've already used that I haven't used in other cameras because it's too hard to remember, on site, how to get to them (all found in scenes on the panasonic). Easy to change settings while in use, even underwater.
Summary: worked great for me. battery life for recording video maybe only a couple of hour, but picture taking battery may last all day, you will have to buy memory cards for video recording. it has internal memory good for picture taking but not enough for recording any thing. it will record some video, just not enough memory for long recordings.
Summary: despite what all the other reviews have said using the camera indoors works just fine, the only time it struggles to focus is when it's almost completely dark. outdoors the camera works amazingly well! haven't tried it underwater yet but I'm kinda nervous and excited at the same time! just waiting for my warrenty to arrive.
