Great camera, great value

Iljun Jang, Amazon
22 May 2002
  • Summary: I bought this camera because it earned Editors' Awards from ... extremely reliable on their reviews. Considering that comparable models from other makers...were priced well above [$], the sub-[$]price was also a significant plus.

Great Camera, one small problem

Amazon
19 May 2002
  • Summary: I was going on vacation and decided to get a videocam/still camera to record the festivities. After reading reviews from many different sites (epinion, various computer and video mag sites) I decided on the PVDV701. I have used it numerous times for still shots and video without a single glitch.

I recommend that you stay away from this unit.

Ken C Frazier, Amazon
3 April 2002
  • Summary: I purchased this unit because I liked the features and the price was reasonable. It comes with a light that fits in the hot shoe, and a remote control. It has both digital and analog inputs/outputs, and USB & firewire interfaces. However, my experience has not been good.

Windows XP Users - Don't Buy This Camera

Todd Ochsner, Amazon
22 March 2002
  • Summary: Nice camera but Windows XP users should be advised that this camera does not support XP drivers and will not work with Windows XP. I wish I had known this prior to purchase. Panasonic says that XP drivers will be ready in early Summer of 2002. We can only hope.

Heaven forbid your's should ever need repair

Laurie Francis, Amazon
18 February 2002
  • Summary: Mine did. When customer service finally found the unit lost in its repair facility, they were of little or no help in making it right. I have had to have it repaired three times in 6 months. Until I brought my attorney into it, Panasonic was slow to help.

Great camcorder!

Amazon
13 February 2002
  • Summary: We researched the Panasonic PV-DV601 and Sony products and ultimately decided on the 701. We love the 3.5" screen, still photo capability, as well as the capability to convert our old 8mm camcorder tapes to digital.
