Summary: Palmcorder as they call it?! It's still a good ol' Camcorder to me here in America. I needed this to replace my trusty GS9 that after 8 years of faithful service, finally took a dump. Yes I still use Mini DVs... darn it! I got sooo many tapes I need this machine to play my tapes back too...
Summary: Although used, the camera was in very good condition with all features in good operating condition. I particularly liked that the camera accepted both DV tapes and memory cards for recording videos, and had a bright, clear image in the viewing screen.
Good product Not worth if you want to use it in dark

Summary: I would put this camera in 5/5 rating if the it could work fine in low light. In day light or in electric light even if not so bright, this camera does a good job. The look and Feel: Perfect. Its fits on the palm of my hand and its very comfortable to handle.
Summary: Looked around for quite a while before buying this camera, and I am quite happy with my decision.
Pros: I'm the first one to give this thing 4 stars so I'll try to refute this claim. First, the good stuff-- It is super small, looks great, takes beautiful video, is relatively inexpensive, is of excellent quality, and is certainly one of the best palmcorders out there. I was also pleasantly surprised...
Cons: There are some minor caveats which are expected for a camera of this price range. First, the digital still pictures are hardly stellar, especially in low light. They seemed just a bit grainy in all conditions. The video is also a poor performer in low light(small lense you know).
Summary: I did quite a bit of research on video cameras but I am by no means an expert. I selected this camera in the hopes that the image quality would be a lot better than my older JVC camera. Although the colors are a bit better, that is all you seem to get for the 3CCD.
Summary: We bought this camera Oct. 2005 and it malfunctioned two months later. We spent the next two weeks trying to contact Panasonic. Panasonic website e-mail doesn't work. Finally a local Panasonic dealer told us to contact Bigston Corp. They fixed it within the 90 day warranty. Works great since then.
Summary: Well I just recived this camera for Christmas and I thought it was great taking pictures and all, but it didn't come with a tape. Although the picture quality is exalent I suggest you buy a tape that fits it before you buy it.
Summary: We bought the Canon ZR100 but retutrned it before we opened it after reading many reviews about the loud fan/motor and bad low light recordings. We bought the Sony HC21 next and thought the colors looked dull and the greys looked grainy in a room with two lamps and a window.
