Summary: The video camera is small and handy and has good size hard disk. The outdoor video capture is good and the audio recording is also good. The thing that I don't like with this camera is that taking videos indoor with less light does not produce very good quality.
Summary: I expected it to only have low quality images. It didn't come with software and so I gave that one star. but the camera works great with windows 7. I copy the video file to my computer and then I can either open them in adobe premier, or just simply change the file extension from ".DOM" to ".MPG".
Summary: I bought this keeping in mind that it has a 40Gb HDD which is pretty handy. It is very easy to use. I don`t have any problems so far with my mac as mentioned by some people. The video quality is very good and loved the voice recording.
Summary: We bought this camcorder to take on vacation with us last year. We've also used it to tape our grandon's hockey game and family Christmases. I'm surprised at the ease of learning to use it. I really enjoy the charger which came with it; we can charge it up in a few hours and go film again.
Summary: The battery that the site says is compatible is NOT!; I had to send back the extra battery but that was do-able. So far I haven't gotten the opportunity to play w/ my new toy. It is really small, fits in the palm of my hand. Havent decided if I like that yet.
Summary: Overall Good: 1. Easy to use, 2. Movie quality is good, 3. No issues transferring movies from disk to PC, 4. No issues with battery life, 5. Software has good features (little difficult to install - due to XP and Vista Service Pack requirements). Two issue (in my opinion): 1. No remote control, 2.
Summary: I read that the included software was terrible, but I purchased the camcorder anyway since I would be using Premiere Elements 7. After I charged the battery and shot a sample video, I hooked up the USB cable to the camcorder and the computer, and tried to upload the video - - nothing.
Summary: I am very pleased with my new Panasonic SDR-H40 video camera. It is easy to follow the setup menu and provides very good quality video pictures. I've only used it a few times so far, but like the results I am having.
