Summary: This camcorder has a very good picture quality even though it is not HD. The camera takes digital pictures as well as very good video. A real bargain for such a quality camcorder. Panasonic makes great products.
The Panasonic SDR-H80 is a 'one stop shop' for your needs.

Excerpt: I absolutely love my Panasonic SDR-H80 (60 GB) Hard Drive Camcorder! I've had it for 7 months and use it regularly. The 70x zoom is much higher than most other comparable comcorders I found. It is easy to transfer images from the camcorder to your computer whether you are using the hard drive or you are using an SD memory card. I really like that it allows you to use it as a still photo camera in addition to the camcorder.
I wouldn't go on vacation without my PanasonicSDR-H80 Camcorder!

Excerpt: I love this product! It is easy to use takes great pictures and videos no matter where you are. The zoom is amazing, I was honestly shocked how well the zoom worked, the pictures do not get distorted at all. It is extremely easy to either hook up to your computer to save your memories or hook up to a TV to watch your videos on your TV. Bring Pro is it has an internal hard drive you do not need to worry about DVDs or saving the content on a memory card.
Summary: I love this camera I bought it around 8 months ago and i use it all the time. It is so easy to use the features are fantastic and it makes everything i record look close to professional quality
Summary: Camera is a little small for my hand but was a gift for my wife and fits hers like a glove. She loves it and it is easy to use. Found two downfalls with the camera, no light so you can't film in dark places... not a huge deal breaker and the second is that the software does not seem to be windows 7 compatible. Other than that I have found this to be a great camera for the price and excellent zoom capability and tons of features.
