Clicking noise

  • 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.

Panasonic SDR-H85 camcorder

  • 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 bought this at what was meant to be a bargain price (just under £200, supposedly down from well over £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.

Poor resolution

  • 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!
