Summary: Camera wont boot turn on or do any thing after it literally rolled off my leg in in some dirt. Not rugged at all there should be a reset or some thing to get it going again but i cant find any thing on it.
Summary: I have had this camera for about a year, and almost took it back within 30 days of purchase. (I should have done it!) This is a reasonably good camera, but when you want to save the videos to your PC, you must use their special software since they are not compatible without that conversion software.
Summary: Where do I start? DON'T BUY THIS CAMCORDER. The video quality reminds me of our video camera from the '80's. Seriously, my wife's digital camera takes better video. So, it doesn't matter what "features" come with the camera.
Sound died after second use, and Customer Service could care less

Summary: We bought the Panasonic SDR-H80 just before our baby was born in late October. We tested it once before she was born, and then used it once in the hospital for a few minutes -- it seemed reasonably easy to use, and the picture and sound were okay.
Summary: I am extremely disappointed with this camera. Its nice looking, light weight and seems easy to use, but none of that matters when the video quality is so terrible. Others have said that their cameras takes better quality video. I agree. The quality of video recorded on this thing is a joke!
Summary: Got this camera today, havent messed with it much, but the video quality is atrocious. I wanted to upgrade my old video camera from 2003. But this camera actually takes worse pictures. It even takes worse videos then my cell phone.
Summary: I buy a camcorder for one reason only--video quality. All the other features are really just pointless. I want to be able to take clear crisp images of my family--this camcorder does not fit that bill. I am returning it. The quality even on the highest quality setting was terrible.
Summary: I am going to keep it short and sweet. I bought the SDR-H80 and it had TERRIBLE picture quality (like many other reviews have stated). I am not a technical whiz who is expecting high definition, but the picture quality is so poor I took it back.
Summary: I purched this product from Amazon, of which I have never had a problem and do not anticipate return of this product to be a problem. I just received it, read all directions and proceded to shoot vedio set at best Quality. The vedio is much worse than my old tape Panasonic camcorder.
