Excerpt: Hold on tight to your Digital Camcorder NV-DS65B driver cd for if you lose it the support from Panasonic is nothing short of pathetic. I and hundereds of others are still looking for Digital Camcorder NV-DS65B drivers for Vista. Panasonic is quick to divert those of us looking for these drivers to computer invaders who then help us by invading our computers checking through our personal info and finally letting us download drivers that Panasonic should have offered to us...
Excerpt: it is good camera having many function. a person having no experince of camera can easily operate it. it has on major problem of dew indication even if there is no problem if moisture camera display dew indicator and do not work. lcd resolation is not very good and some indications not clearly identified. camera is handy and on can easyly handel it.
Excerpt: Overall this is a reasonable quality camera with some useful functions. At the price it is near the lower end of the camcorder market but still provides the necessary functions to take a good move. The camera has a main video option and a stills option. The video does the trick, providing good zoom and focus qualities. The stills option on thie camera is of no use to a digital camera user. The resolution is 640 * 480.
Pros: Small, useable, light weight
Cons: Lacks some finer points, stills option is useless .
Excerpt: 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. Having a black and white view finder is a waste of time as you have to use the colour monitor all the time which is a pain. The Canon, 3 years older, has a colour viewfinder and is in the same price bracket.
Pros: Compact, well made .
Cons: Very poor low light performance, black and white view finder

Excerpt: This camera is small and compact; the picture quality is extremely good compared to other manufacturers. I paid £399 this was a reasonable price for the quality that you receive. The camera comes with all the equipment to connect the camera to the computer to upload the filming that as been taken.
Pros: Small, compact
Cons: when taking still picture using the SD card,the pixel quality is poor
Excerpt: Ha pasado mucho tiempo desde los últimos comentarios, pero veo que nos han tomado el pelo ha muchos. El icono de con densación te impide que funcione, la luz del power parpadea y finalmente se apaga la máquina. Por mucho que sigas las instrucciones, que dejes abierta durante unas horas la carcasa de la cinta, etc..,, nada cambia y tengo ya cinco meses la cámara bloqueda. ¿Aguien sabe la solución? Soi la llevo a un técnico servirá sólo para sacar dinero???
