Summary: Purchased as on open box special, I had no great expectations from this video camera but have been pleasantly suprised. It does great in low light, and ok in daylight. It is a battery hog so by some spares. It is not a professional or even high end camera so if that is what you need look elsewhere.
Summary: This camera is good at what it does. It is not a $400.00 camcorder that takes flawless movies. It is a great little camcorder that is small enough that you will take it with you and actually use it. I have had other camcorders and they got left home a lot. This one goes with me everywhere.
Summary: CAMCORDER What I like best is the user interface. It's menu is so simple my first wife and I both can use it. If you want a easy-to-use camcorder this is one. It powers up quick. It's very portable. CAMERA It takes good still photos if you want capture the moment.
Summary: I have a great little mini-DV camera. However, I get so tired of having to play the video to get it into my Mac. After hearing Andy Ihnatko rave about this camera on MacBreak Weekly, I decided to give it a try. It does create .mod files which are a special form of mpeg-2.
Summary: I am a video editor by trade. I make TV shows and up until recently I have carried huge DV camera's around with me to make sure every moment of my kids youth is captured. As they grew older, the need to film grew less and less appealing as it ruined many a day out.
Summary: I have had this camera for almost 6 months now. It is light and small, fast to bootup (especially from standby with the screen closed) and - within the limits of a camera with these specifications - produces good movies.
Summary: Cinque anni fa, in occasione della mia laurea, ho ricevuto la mia prima videocamera, una Panasonic SDR S10, molto all'avanguardia per l'epoca e che, ancora oggi, regge bene il confronto con le videocamere di nuovissima generazione.
Pros: piccola e maneggevole, batteria dura a lungo, molte funzioni, bel design
