Summary: This Panasonic digital camcorder has a built-in (fluorescent) "light" that allows you to shoot images/capture video in the dark, which is almost unavailable in all other major brand-name electronics companies (e.g. Sony).
Summary: I have had this camera for several years and love it. I can use it all day and never tire as it is so light. I love the pics and video. It does take a huge amount of pictures on a 256 mb SD card. I could not believe how many it took before filling this card.
Summary: After using the Palmcorder brand for 6 years, I just purchased a second one to use for a 2-camera setup (both running at different angles since I produce martial arts instructional videos). For those new to digital camcorders, my opinion is that this is a great camera.
Summary: I know the frustration of wanting some software with this product. Yes its a nice little camera and all but if you want to get some actual video out of it to be put on your computer you could use video capturing software like snag-it which has a free download and trial.
Summary: What I love about it: It has a firewire connection, so you can connect it right to your computer if your PC has firewire (1394IEEE)It has a card slot and i bought the Lexar media 256mb card, was able to hold around 700 digital pictures on it! Its palm-size and lightweight.
