Summary: I've owned this camera since 2010 ,I very happy with it anyone that says it doesn't take good video pictures doesn't know what they're talking about or maybe from another co..it is light and easy to use,a monkey could run it ,it's that simple I gave it 5stars however if you want to take still shots I would suggest you by a digital camera for a better picture,it's really for videos
Summary: Now this Camcorder is one of the best i have ever purchased, and I have had many all the way back to the VHS big boy type. I really do love this one the most because of it's small size, ease of use, and it get's the job done. I personally would recommend this Panasonic SDR-H85K model to my family and friends. Thanks for great working camcorder.
Fantastic buy, does everything I need and than some .

Summary: Amazing standard definition video recorder. This unit has 80 GB of internal storage, with a capacity to use SD--SDHC--SDXC cards from 1GB thru 64GB. Take pictures, or shoot video, or make stills of video you have taken. Easy to load to my HP laptop, than easy to burn a DVD to share the captured memories. Not being a real techie, I can still manage this device. Anyone can enjoy this video camera. Very light with memory cards and extra batteries readily available.
Summary: A very good camcorder, easy to operate. I was hoping for HD quality, but the video is still good. The self-contained hard drive is great, and a video card, not included with this purchase, may be used also.
