Great When it Works - If It Works

Summary: Beware! I'm not as unlucky with this as some others. Thecamera worked great through my wedding and honeymoon. After that it'sbeen all downhill. I've spent the better part of the last yearsending my camera back and forth to Panasonic. Customer Service is the biggest oxymoron possible here. I've now got one more problem--my AC adapter died. Panasonic wants $150 for a new one, and it's backordered for 3 months. It's time for Sony.
Summary: I was tring to get suport for their staff before this one was no surprise you will never get anything from them if something will mulfunctions It will be probably easier to but something else.
Summary: I upgraded from a Sony Hi8 to take on a trip through Europe. I had lots of problems because it always shuts off automatically. My old Sony did the same but could reboot in jus ta few seconds. This one takes forever so you have to be "timing" when you want a good shot. Plus the batteries seemed to drain really fast.
Summary: I bought one of these cameras to film a once in a lifetime, 3 month Central American vacation. I figured I'd spend the extra money and get the high quaiity offered by digital video. I literally filmed 5 minutes of my vacation when the camera malfunctioned. A warning told me that I need to get the heads cleaned. Now Im no camera expert, but Im also not an idiot. Video heads generally work for more than 5 minutes before requiring service.
