Summary: My wife and I love to travel & our favorite place to go and relax is Walt Disney World. One of the things we love to do there is take our cameras and run around looking like the dopey tourists we are. My wife focuses solely on still photography, I do stills and video. In my youth I played around with Super 8 film cameras, later graduated to a VHS camcorder, then a Hitachi 8mm camcorder, then for years used my favorite camcorders: the Sony Digital 8 series.
Summary: it is nice camcorder easy to use very small camcorder like a still camera you can make movie easily and you can take the picture from hi8 tap in play motion you can use the sd card for still picture
It's a great camcorder for capturing memorable moments!

Summary: Its worth getting if you pay a decent price. You have to install firewire/ IEEE 1394 on your computer if you dont have it already, for transferring videos to the cpu. That was a hassle, but once I completed that, I was good to go. In great lighting, its great. When it gets dark, the quality isn't the best, even when you turn the camera light on. The pictures aren't great, but thats what a digital camera is for. I appreciate this little device.
Summary: I do have a camcordeer, however I purchased this camcorder for my brother as a gift. After received it, I didn't want to give it to him. It was so light,small, and easy to carry too. Soon or later, I will have to get another one again from this seller.
Summary: I've been using camcorders professionally and recreationally since 1986, and this little camcorder is the best deal out there period. DV technology is proven, been around for a long time, if you want a reliable, simple to operate, and very GOOD camcorder, look no further. Picture quality is excellent, one of Panasonic's strong points, color accuracy very good, and autofocus laser accurate.
Summary: I got this item as a gift. I makes really nice movies and I thought I could get rid of my old digital camera as well but.... This thing takes miserable still photos. Not even fit for printing. I have a three year old coolpix 3200 that takes much better photos but bad videos. So I get stuck taking them both with me to events. So if you need a camcorder that takes good digital photos just keep looking.
Summary: I have this camera too and I have no problems with lighting or anything else. I travel a lot so I use this camera on my trips to capture special moments for the scrapbook. I have used it in all types of light and it works great. Handy, small, easy to understand, overall a good camcorder, you just have to know what you are doing.
Summary: I was looking for a basic mini dv camcorder to learn editing and video techniques. Picture quality was certainly important but, having strong photographic knowledge, also wanted something that would allow manual control. That limited the search quite a bit, especially in the single CCD class. The Panasonics in general seem to be well reviewed and offer a good ratio of features to cost. I've had the camcorder for one week but have explored it quite a bit.
