Summary: I bought this camera mainly because I needed 1 to record my only daughter's first birthday. Unfortunately, I procrastinated and waited until her b-day to buy 1. I found 1 that I liked but it was out of stock at the store I went to so I had to "settle" for this 1. Initially I was pretty satisfied with it until I recorded for longer than 2-3 minutes. While recording her birthday party, I noticed the camera making a clicking noise.
Summary: Purchased this camcorder 4 months ago was dissapointed with picture quality not as good as my old Panasonic NV-GS10B, which I had for 7 years. Returned to DK Audio Visual with footage of camcorder on a DVD showing how the camcorder went from bright to very dark, and then unwatchable. Item returned with the comment (CHECKED AND SOAK TESTED ) but no explanation as to what had gone wrong, with this 4 month old camcorder.
Summary: i read these very reviews before trying a re-conditioned panasonic h85 i bought from here amazon and although the camera seems fine picture quality is lousey so far .........some videos i shoot are better than others like when i first got it it was ok but not great(im used to mini dv tape) but was shocked at how bad the colours seem not as good as my wifes cheap nikon still camera when you hold the screens up together the nikon has much truer colours mine seems to have...
Summary: I bought this at what was meant to be a bargain price (just under Â£200, supposedly down from well over Â£300), so perhaps my expectations were higher than they should have been. Admittedly the hard drive adds to the value of it (consider how much 80GB-worth of SDHC cards would cost), but as this camcorder would get a lot of use indoors, that was the essential test... which it failed abysmally. I have a 5-bulb ceiling light-fitting, and 3 wall lights in our living room.
Pros: Zoom, hard drive, Intelligent Auto
Cons: Picture quality, particularly heavy grain from indoor filming.
Summary: This camera was very blurry during zooming. Although its a hard drive camera, a tape drive JVC which we owned previously gave a far better quality picture. The stills pictures it takes are also very very poor.
Summary: Видеокамера должна снимать видео в достойном качестве! Я, конечно, понимаю, что это не HD, но все же не до такой степени! Снимать можно в нормальном качестве только при естественном освещении и то при хорошей погоде. В помещении с искусственным освещением сплошное зерно и размытость. Я думаю, этот недостаток перекрывает все ее преимущества. А главное, это HDD на 80 Gb. Ну и конечно отличное качество сборки - с этим не поспоришь + поддержка карт памяти.
Pros: Отличная сборка+HDD на 80 Gb+поддержка карт памяти
Cons: Отвратительное качество съемки - этим все сказано!
