Summary: While this is an older model as far as camcorders goes, it takes pretty decent videos. I bought it to record videos for a college course. If I were buying to actually record home movies or things I wanted to keep for a period of time, I probably would have invested more money in purchasing an HD camera.The problem lies in trying to get the videos from the camera to your pc.
Summary: used it over christmas holiday caught my grandson opening his gifts early sunday morning,had alought of comcpany over the weekend great film footage, picture a little grainey,also there were no cd or book i had to buy it from panasonic they were not very nice.
Summary: i purchased this camcorder because we were going to Hawaii for a vacation. The camera worked great, the battery lasted for over two hours, and the picture quallity is great.The camera is very easy to use and never gave me a lick of trouble. It is also lite weight, and small enough not to be bothersom.
Summary: I work in IT & have for many years. Very into video editing am daunted neither by software nor hardware issues. I read many reviews and since I'm an advanced user I figured it was merely difficult for lay people. I normally resolve what I need to figure out or know someone who can.I'VE HAD THIS CAMERA LESS THAN A MONTH AND IT HAS ALREADY BROKEN DOWN. IF YOU DO RISK IT PURCHASE A PROTECTION PLAN BECAUSE YOU WILL MOST LIKELY HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THIS PRODUCT!
