Summary: pro: easy to handle. good replay quality, good control. con: - i used the multimedia card to take some photos, very disappointed, even in the high configuration (640x480), the photo is still blurry, objects are surrounded by a bright edge, as if it's taken from 2nd-handed VCR tapes. i'd like to see panasonic either cut this multimedia-card feature and lower the price, or put some decent camera functionalities comparable to other entry-level standalone cameras.
Summary: The PV-DV400 offers several different digital effects in addition to zoom capabilities. The "digital mirror" creates a mirrorlike symmetrical image, while "strobe" digitally freezes a series of images. "Mosaic" turns the image into a mosaic pattern, and "slim" expands the image vertically.
