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 NEW PV-L354D CAMCORDER IN MARCH OF 2005. IVE USED IT SPARINGLY. THE SOUND WENT OUT OR I HEAR STATIC & THATS ALL. MY WIFE WENT THRU THE ROOF WHEN WE VIDEOTAPED MY DAUGHTERS RECITAL & BIRTHDAY & ALL WE HEARD ON THE PLAYBACK WAS STATIC.IM FURIOUS. PANASONIC REFUSES TO HELP ME. SO HERE I AM STUCK WITH A PIECE OF S--T CAMCORDER THAT HAS NO SOUND. I WILL NOT BUY ANY PANASONIC PRODUCT AGAIN BECAUSE OF THEIR USELESS PRODUCT HELP DEPARTMENT. THANK U THANK U VERY MUCH.
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: 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: 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: 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.
Summary: I am from the old school. So I not only loved the VHS recording format, but if I wanted to dip into modern day technology the photo feature on this particular model will allow me to. Compared to other camcorders under $250 the picture isn't as great but good enough! Remember you get the best of both worlds with this one!! It's easy to use and it's cheap!!!!!!!!!
Summary: I wanted a camcorder that was reasonably priced, not too large and with the ability to use a VCR tape that could go directly into my VCR. This camcorder more than met these requirements. The VCR-C tape goes into an adapter and can be immediately viewed on a VCR. You can dub a tape directly to the normal size VCR tape directly from the camera. There are great digital effects possible - fading in and out of the picture in a number of different colors and shapes.
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..
