Summary: We had bought this camera 5 years ago and due to an accident it broke. We were very satisfied with the ease of use and picture quality. Since we already had all the accessories plus a tape to CD recorder it was easier to get the same model than buy all different technology.
Summary: This is a great camcorder. I am impressed with the quality and richness of the colors. The colors look just like they should be outdoors-pretty much EXACT. It has a great design, and has all the features, including a MICROPHONE INPUT!!!
Summary: I have only used this camera a couple times so far, but I absolutely love it. Some controls are poorly laid out and not real convenient but the picture quality and other features far outweigh this small nuisance. I still rate it 5stars!
Summary: I decide to buy the digital camera coz i wanted a new much performant one.I couldn't resist to not buy it at such an amazing price.Was new in a box and with all it needed;it works just perfect and such a clear zoom!!
Summary: I was planning to visit my native country after retiring so I decided to buy a cheap & multifunction camcorder with a high zoom. After a lot of Internet research ,I decided to look for this model at a reasonable price.
Summary: For the price the picture is certainy great. An earlier reviewer had written about a problem with the tape getting tangled. One solution would be to record to the PC directly. As it is quite impossible to decipher the instructions from the manual I will briefly describe the procedure.
AWESOME! Great Panasonic Camcorder - Lots of Features
22 June 2006
Summary: I love this Panasonic camcorder. It is great that you can take photos while you are recording! It is an awesome feature. You just need to be sure to hold the camera very still when you are taking the picture. And they come out great! I print them and am surprised how well it works.
Summary: I have done a lot of research on camcorders and I was a Sony brand person. My pc is a Sony Vaio, all electtonics I have are Sony except the televsions. However I wasn't impressed with the Sony cams. I wanted the most optical zoom I could get for my money and Sony didn't have it.
Summary: I am very pleased with this camera. Having never operated a camcorder before, I had no idea what to expect. I initially was looking for a camera that I could easily download and edit the film on my computer.
