Summary: I bought this camcoder 3 years back and havent used much. Recently after using i tried to download the imaged to my laptop and realized i misplaced the CD. I tried to download the software from their site. Panasonic directed me to the [...] site. Their i didnt find the downloadable and I called their customer support. The asked me to call panasonic at 800-211 7262.
Summary: A very well engineered product. This Panasonic SDR-18, 30GB hard disk camcorder is a fast study to learn to use. The owner's manual is easy to read/ understand. I took me about 15 minutes to get this video camera recording and playing back the recorded video. Being able to download the video to a computer/ VCR is a big plus. Sincerely, Henry Flower.

Summary: Included in this auction are the following: - Panasonic SDR-H18 video camera - Lowepro camera bag - two lithium ion battery packs - power cord with charging station - usb cable - user manual Perfect for taking on a trip or recording long events. Extended recording for extended shooting fun. The internal 30 GB hard disk drive holds as much video data as about 22 8-centimeter DVD discs.
Summary: It's been almost two years since I purchased this camcorder. It's worth it. Initially I was thinking that 30GB may not be sufficient but haven't filled up yet. Only negative part is you can't connect to your computer without AC power because USB plug is behind the battery and you have to remove the battery to connect to PC which sucks.
Summary: This camcoder requires ImageMixer 3 software to watch videos on PC and I did NOT get one with my purchase and trying to find help on internet to buy this software is not much encouraging either. I found like around $30 to buy IMAGEMIXER 3 SOFTWARE to make your videos work on PC. This is ridiculous. I would NOT recommend this camcoder.
