Summary: the camcorder was a grate value for my self it works grate easey to handel I can transfer tapes to dvd with ease I have a ditional camcorder but to completed to use with computer I AM NOT A YOUNGSTER it works mutch better with tape .
Summary: I bought a Panasonic Camcorder a few years back. I continually got a Dew Detected message. Got that fixed and shortly there after the sound was intermitant as noted in so many other reviews here and elsewhere - though I did not know it at the time. So I gave Panasonic another chance. I bought this model and it worked fine again for about a year or so..
Summary: I love the ability for anbody to be able to use this item...it is very well made and very adaptable to anybody's needs...it has every function you could ask for with any camera and it has so many additional items that can be bought seperately with it...the best thing on it is the zoom and light function and you can even hook it up to your tv/vcr and record those special moments and watch them like a movie..
Summary: What a mess!! Last summer, I tried to tape some very special events and there was no sound. The very frustrating part was that it was a spuratic problem. One day it would work and the next day I got no sound. YOu never had any idea if it would work, which meant that some super special moments were lost forever. There was always a picture, but half the time there was no sound. I finally got so frustrated that I quit taping anything.
Summary: This camcorder has ruined everything!!!!! The sound had worked on and off for a while- very unpredictable. We taped my son's birthday party in January and it taped the sound. We used it the next month to tape my newborn twins in the hospital and there was NO SOUND!!!! I was crushed. I tried another tape and magically the sound worked when I was just fooling around and not taping anything important, so I used it to tape their first tub baths- NO SOUND!!!
Summary: I, too, thought this was an excellent camcorder for several months until I did a playback of one of those events that can't be repeated and....NO SOUND!! The video looks great, but...NO SOUND!! It had worked fine on several occasions and even now, I can shoot a quick video and check to make sure there is sound on the playback before I shoot the important moment I want to capture. Then I shoot the main event and, again, NO SOUND!!
Summary: I have this exact video camera, it is so easy to use. The LCD is extra clear, rotates. Picks up sound very clearly. I use this on a tripod for an extended taping. The battery life is great, nice to have with kids or grandkids. If you can operate a vcr, you can operate this camera. I especially like the zoom, can take to ballgames, etc. and get the whole picture. Now I just pop in vcr and copy to DVD recorder.Works like a charm. Wouldn`t be without it.
Summary: We bought this camcorder because we were going on Vacation to Disneyland and our other camcorder would not work. This camcorder is so much better than our other one was. When ever you moved the old camcorder to get various shots, it had to refocus, which took a few minutes. This one does not need to refocus. This camcorder is a little bit heavier than our old one, but it is easier to use. And the better quality makes up for the weight difference.
