Summary: I bought this camera 7 months ago and used it only rarely. (My total recording time was less than 2 hrs.) This week I opened the camera to find out that it is dead. No display, nothing. Called the customer service and they asked me to ship the camera to their Camera Repair company.
Summary: You would think that for a $400 plus item that Panasonic would be able to afford a tape, but of course not. And then to compound matters, there is no mention (that I can find) of what tape should be used in the instructions.
Summary: I still have not used all the features on this mini cam, but I do have to say it is awesome! Clarity and colors are very good, the photos are good for sharing on line, but for printing them up it is best to use your digital camera that is what it is for.
Summary: I bought this camcorder about 3 months ago from circuit city. I don't have much complain about it except it stops working in less than one month, and my tape was stuck in it. Circuit city won't return/exchange it because it has past two weeks(lesson: return policy does matter here!
