"Very bad quality Picture"

Melyob, CNET
18 January 2014
  • Pros: Compact design. Long life battery, (optional) easy to use. Works with MAC Leopard and Lion
  • Cons: More bad than good. Can't say it all in 250 characters.

useless

deb, Amazon
26 January 2013
  • Summary: I have had this camcorder for several years. The software has never worked. I have called, no one cares. The files are not compatible with anything out there. So, I have never been able to get my files edited or onto a CD for viewing. Only way I can see them is on the camcorder. useless piece of equipment without compatible software.

Very Poor Quality Video

J.M. Boyle, Amazon
5 September 2010
  • Summary: I got this camera for my birthday 3 years ago. I wish I had taken it back to the store immediately after the first time I downloaded a video. I shot a LOT of video before I downloaded anything, thanks to the large hard drive. After the first couple of videos came out so poorly, I thought I was doing something wrong. Then, I lost the user manual right away. I finally downloaded a manual from Panasonic for free.

DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA

K. Cooney, Amazon
31 May 2010
  • Summary: The video software that comes with it ONLY works with outdated computer operating systems...and Panasonic is NOT providing an upgraded version of the software. I purchased this camera 2 years ago for $600 and now have 2 years of video TRAPPED on it. The tech. support guy "understood my frustration" but was NO help at all. I will NEVER buy another Panasonic product again.

If you buy this camcorder, you will live to regret it!

breakingnice, Amazon
26 April 2010
  • Summary: If you buy this video camera you will live to regret it. We have all these lovely family videos that we shot on it's endless hard drive, but no way to upload it to any usable form. The camera itself is easy to use: takes great videos, takes stills at the flip of a button, everything seems hunky dory. BUT........when you go to convert it on your computer, you realize that all those wonderful videos are held captive in a very expensive doorstop!

Good Value for the Money but Lacks Some Features

H. Adams "piratepress", Amazon
17 September 2009
  • Summary: I bought this camcorder for my wife for Christmas in 2008 to replace an old tape-based camcorder than was 5 years old. This one is much smaller (fits perfectly in an adult-sized hand) and represents a good value for the money. However, the picture quality of the still shots was a little disappointing and the video could be sharper. But considering it was half the cost of a comparable Hi-Def unit, that's to be expected.

Great for Indoor and Zoom

Aaauger, Amazon
6 September 2009
  • Summary: I did a lot of research before purchasing this particular videocam. Our goal was to film diving: 1) indoors (under harsh lighting) and 2) from a distance (from the bleachers past the width of an olympic pool). The extent of the zoom and quality of the video are excellent. We can't speak to the audio because we don't use it. This videocam meets our needs well. And we haven't even exercised the videocam settings yet.

WAY overpriced and bad design choices.

Bob From Springfield "Bob From Springfield", Amazon
27 May 2009
  • Summary: The Good: I like the size and ease of use. The 60gb hard drive will store about 7-8hrs at the highest picture level setting. The option to shoot to an SD card, the 50X zoom and the "Copy to DVD" button are nice too. Although the "Copy to DVD" function comes with a serious caveat. The Bad: For starters, the laughable software. What are we, beta testers? I don't expect "Adobe Premiere Pro" to come with it, but the included software is wretched.
