Tough Camera, that actually packs a PUNCH!

Justin Swinehart "Bucky", Amazon
25 March 2010
  • Summary: I had this camera for 7 years. I had bought this camera when it hit the market in 2002-2003. This camera has been in Rain and Shine weather, and has held up to all the elements. It has been thrown around , rained on and still has held up to this very day to everything I put it through! I use this camera now basically for close up videos for wildlife purposes. Some video can be found on [...]. I also had used a Canon GL-2 and a Canon XL2.

Easy to use, great quality video

  • Summary: This camera/Camcorder is so easy to use. I am not anywhere near a professional and I could figure this out and have a great time with it. It's perffect for taping the kids indoors and out, and gives the opportunity to take still photos as well! This is extremely easy to hook up to the TV and put onto a video tape or to connect to your PC. Two thumbs up!

Seems great as reviews say, but turns out to be junk

J. Grossman, Amazon

  • Summary: Everything billed about this camera that is good, even its seemingly solid construction, is true--when you first get it. Then and quickly the camera breaks, and you discover, and I thought I'd learned my lesson about this from another piece of Panasonic equipment years ago, that Panasonic is simply not a brand to be trusted.

Great value - shame about the mic quality

L. Marlowe "mom2", Amazon
2 March 2003
  • Summary: I have had this camcorder (my first and only) for nearly a year. It was a great entry to home video. I was very pleased with the picture quality and it is easy to use. I have tried the EIS feature(electronic image stabilization) and it really works and the effect on picture quality is barely noticeable. Editing on a computer with the IEEE1394 interface is fun (and IEEE1394 interface cards for desktop and laptop PCs can be had very cheaply - I bought one for each.

Simplicity is key.

Zartog the Magnificent, Amazon

  • Summary: This digital camera has everything you need. Don't waste your money on those overpriced gadgety cameras, when all you need is something to capture good quality digital video. I've played around with quite a few DV cameras, and almost all of them were impossible to figure out. Too many buttons. This camera only has the necessities. My only complaint about the ergonomics is that the record button could be placed better.

Best Value

  • Summary: For an entry level miniDV camcorder, this one Rocks. Easy to use & extremely light. Buy the Pyro firewire card, and you can get great video to your pc. For the price you pay, it doesn't get much better.

This camera stinks

"haze968", Amazon
28 December 2002
  • Summary: 1. The auto /manual button broke down. 2. Outdoors or in strong light, the LCD screen is very sensitive. Picture quality is blurred and unclear. 3. Panasonic customer service stinks. They require you to pay to ship the camcorder for repairs and pay the shipping to receive your camcorder back. You have to ship it to Illinois. There is only a 90 day warranty. By that time your camcorder will probably need repair.
