The camera comes with all the equipment to connect the camera to the computer to upload the filming that as been taken.

Cons: when taking still picture using the SD card,the pixel quality is poor
Summary: I was looking forward to receiving this camcorder to replace a Canon MV400i. I thought that being a newer model and carrying the Panasonic name the performance would be much better but I was very disappointed.
Summary: when i first saw this camcorder i thought wow,because the price was great and it had dv input and out. now thats good because a photographer told me that a camcorder with dv in and out would cost around about 700 to £800 at least, and i am not exagerating.
Summary: Just taken delivery of my first camcorder (missed out the analogue revolution)and the Panasonic NV-DS65B camcorder is the dogs b's for the price. It is compact, light and easy to use straight out of the box with lots of accessories supplied as standard.
Summary: This on the face of it seems to be a lot of camera for not too many sponds. The first thing you notice taking it out of the box is the sheer volume of separate components,(leads, remote and wire controls, AV connection etc.
Summary: I had an opportunity to use NV-DS65 for about a month and could experience it in bright sun, dark, rain, in-out doors. I am a regular camcorder user from shooting to burning CD with special effects.
