Excerpt: I’m sure you’ll love this flash camcorder from Panasonic. With so many on the market and so much competition, it’s hard to know what’s exactly for you, and what exactly you need to be worrying about when it comes to considering your purchase.
Summary: I bought this for my teenager two years back. It still works ! It's been dropped a few times etc and the LCD screen only works across half of its area - but the it still makes good videos like when it was new. Recommended, but as it is now old technology only at a clearance price. Note, it is not HD.
Summary: I got this to replace an excellent but older Sony Handycam, and although it wasn't expensive, I expected a reasonable performance, as it's not an HD recorder, so I reckoned 'old technology, hence lower price'. I was so wrong. This camcorder simply doesn't handle any high-contrast situations, such as inside shots on a sunny day, moving from shade to sun outdoors, etc. It 'hunts' for ages trying to get its light-metering right. Absolutely hopeless.
Summary: I have bought the camcorder from treated with care on Amazon and I can confirm that I have been treated with care and I am happy with both the price and the condition of the camcorder which I found both easy to use with all the functions I need.
Summary: When I first got this It was brillaint, and still is. You can plug it into the TV to see your recordings, or to even record at the same time! But it let me down when I found out you had to download software for it. The software editing is poor, compared to WMM. And So I thought I could just edit it in WMM, but Panasonic made the videos so you cannot edit them in any other sofware(s), which i think is rather stupid.
Summary: i bought this little camcorder after a lot of should i or should,nt i.but i must say that after several weeks of use i am highly delighted with its performance.it is a little cracker.fits nicely into the pocket, playback excellent,and great sound.i think a real bargain for the price.
Great Quality and Specification for Something so Small and Light

Summary: This camcorder (which also takes still pictures in JPEG format) is excellent for anyone that either wants something simple or, as in my case, something sufficiently small and lightweight to fit into a pocket when, for example, 'baggage' is limited, you don't want to carry something of great value or you want something unlikely to be affected by jolting etc (since it has virtually no mechanical moving parts).
