  • Summary: The ease of use is what makes this camcorder a great item to have. We had our first one and it needed fixed so another one was purchased because of our great experience with the first one.

  • 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. No external light for night vision.

great little camera

  • Summary: We researched and read all the reviews on severaly cameras and picked this one. So far we're very happy with this purchase. The hard drive holds a ton of stuff, and is easily transfered to DVD. The pictures and sound are clear, except for one night shot which I think is more operator fault. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I wish they'd told us we needed specific video software when we purchased it.

No Brain Purchase...brain needed for software

  • Summary: This is a great camera for the price. Right out of the box it is ready to go and the video is easy to shoot, view and edit on the camera. Playback is easily done using a modern TV. The picture and sound are of good quality and there is not anything to really pick on with the camera itself. One of the best features is the stability button which makes for an extremely stable picture especially for those far away zoom shots.

Good product

  • Summary: Despite its low price, this Panasonic camcorder seems to do everything we need it to do with reasonable quality. We are using it to conduct interviews and general classroom events. We use a lapel microphone hooked to an amplifier to capture full sound quality (an audio input is only available on Canon but the picture quality is not as good as the Panasonic). So far, it seems to be a good value if you don't need high definition or special effects. The harddrive is useful.

  • Summary: As far as the camcorder is concerned it works wonders considering the price. I read the reviews and how cnet and other "Professionals" reviewed this calling it youtube quality. I've produced a couple of dvd and so far the quality is not Waner Brothers feature film but it is much better than youtube quality. I've had these dvds playing on big screen tvs and projectors and the quality is not lost.

easy to use, great images, bad software

  • Summary: The camera is very easy to shoot, watch footage on a TV, and the images are great. However, the software is awful. Every time I try to start it, I get an error message. I was able to transfer the files to my computer and then open it with a free software I found online (just google the extension of the video file and it will pop up). Otherwise, it's a great camcorder for the $.
