decent camera/bad buying experience

Thomas Paul Konard, Amazon
26 February 2008
  • Summary: I'm not sure about Amazon's site. This is my third attempt at a review. It keeps disappearing as I type. The camera is decent for something I did not order. It was shipped as a substitute the day BEFORE it was supposed to arrive with the seller not asking first, if they may substitute.

  • Summary: i'm totally satisfied with this camcorder. it fill every expectatives i could have about it. i don't agree with the complaints about the bad sound and bad video in low light. in fact, i'm amazed about the way it can film in very low light (more than i can hope).

VERY DISPLEASED

Carolyn A. Lehman, Amazon

  • Summary: The zoom is a great feature but doesn't make up for the HORRIBLE Audio and HORRIBLE video in low light. When I contacted Panasonic, basically the bottom line was too bad.

Horrible video quality

Jawah Gerdy, Amazon
19 January 2007
  • Summary: This camera has all of the options that you would want in a mini-dv camcorder - 32x zoom, camera light, light weight, compact, very user friendly, good battery life, and great ease of use. However, all of these extras do not matter because the recorded video quality is horrible.

  • Summary: Overall its a good camera, but has some odd outdated features. **4/5**
  • Pros: Has great up to date video capturing features, but lacks in some Image Capturing features (0.8 MegaPixels)
  • Cons: Says that it works with remote but in manual it says its optional and I have yet to find a store where I can buy it from.

Not happy

  • Summary: The Camcorder which I bought, has been displayed as it include a remote comtrol, and when I received the product I found that it is optional (Which is mentioned in the Manual!! which I cannot read untill I open the BOX!!). when I followedup with all, I got refund of 32$ not the missing part.

Good, BUT, could be better indoor video and have more jacks.

Dr. Johnny Fever, Amazon
10 June 2006
  • Summary: The GOOD: digital audio 16-bit sound is great; 'zoom' sound level increase works well; love the joystick controls; manual adjustments are good. Outdoor video is good. Tiny battery. Very very lightweight. 30x zoom rocks - WHEN you use a TRIPOD! The BAD: No microphone jack. No S-Video jack.

(Not actually under 13, just didn't want to register.) Overall, I like the camcorder.

Amazon
12 March 2006
  • Summary: I just bought the 59 about a week ago, and I'm pretty happy with it. First of all, don't expect much from the still shots. The pics you'll take with it won't be meant for framing or printing. They look decent on the computer, though. Plus, outdoor pics are recommended.
