How Important Is It That It Works?

Overstock
12 November 2009
  • 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!

"worthless, wish we could return it"

  • Pros: easy to view directly on tv
  • Cons: hard to keep the videos. need external hard drive, dozens of dvd's, separate dvd recorder, dvd's then don't play on tv, OR all of this is possible but the directions are so confusing that it isn't possible for normal consumers like me.

"Absolutely unacceptable for home vid, horrible software"

  • Pros: Cannot think, there are some little things that are good. They are not worth mentioning.
  • Cons: 1) It is a crap... if you shoot inside home even in daytime with a lot of light. I never saw such poor quality video. 2) Software sucks 3) You need to connect THREE chords to download files to PC.

"piece of crap"

  • Pros: Looks nice on paper and might be OK if it works to connect it to a computer.
  • Cons: I tried connecting to several computers, PC and Mac, with a plethora of software but it won't recognize it's connected, all it seems to be waiting for is a Panasonic DVD burner. I tried different kinds of software (useless SW included).

Panasonic SDR-H40 40GB Hard Drive

  • Summary: If you own a mac DO NOT get this. If I had known that this company was still in the dark ages and was not pc and mac compatible I would not of bought this. As for the the camera in its own use it is a 3 given that is fairly easy to use but if you are looking to do more professional work I would not buy this, but even if you get an okay video of your child's soccer game it can't go onto your mac.

useless software

Patrick Bardill, Amazon
15 April 2008
  • Summary: We got the camera and tested it out by playing it directly to TV and then in Windows Media Player. So far so good. Then we tried using the software to edit video. Software wouldn't start - a runtime error occurred every time (our computer more than meets the minimum requirements). Tried uninstalling and reinstalling software, still the same error. Tried to go to the Panasonic website to find support for the software, but there is NONE.
