Summary: I don't like to take video for many reasons. You end up with a lot of bad scenes in the middle of the tape, if you review the tape you have to forward to the point where you can begin taping again and it takes far to long to transfer the video to the PC if you want to burn it to DVD.
Summary: I needed a camera that fits in my handbag to carry around everywhere I go. This was my primary priority, second was image quality and the third was to be able to record on a memory based media. And this camera is the best you can get considering all these factors.
Single compact camera for video AND usable still photos

Summary: **UPDATE MAY 2007************ I just got back from Turkey, and really put this camera through its paces. All I can say is WOW. The convenience is absolutely an overriding factor to any flaws. Flipping back-and-forth between video and still photos is a snap.
Summary: I bought this about a month ago to replace my Sony DCR-TRV 900, which, as many of you know, was a great SD camcorder at the time, and still is a great SD camcorder. (I mean, for how many electronics product can you say that after 5+ years?
Pros: 1. Good video picture quality 2. Compact size 3. Recording medium: SD/SDHC Card 4. OIS 5. Recording format: MPEG-2 6. Built-in lens cover & hood 7. Ergonomics 8. Webcam function 9. Shape - stands on it's "feet" well, i.e., stable. 10. Decent still image quality What can I say? It's not HD, but it...
Cons: 1. Lack of external mic input (this is a bit surprising since it has a headphone output port) 2. 4GB is the max SD size it will accept (But this may not be a big issue since the battery life is only about 60 min anyway - 4GB records about 60 min video at the highest quality mode.) 3. Number of vi...
Summary: This really is a first class camera for its size... easy to use, good quality output. Only one thing to bear in mind... the microphone is at the rear of the device... perfect for picking up "heavy breathing" - or side comments on the action.... can be a bit of an embarrassment....
Summary: I enjoy this camera alot. Friendly and photo video even in very low light conditions. High quality video is eventually going on the tv or computer. I have some problems with taking out the movies using the program but it's simple to copy the movies through the micromate reader.
Summary: I took quite some time in deciding which camcorder to buy. I wanted one that was small so it would be easy to take with me. I also wanted to stay away from tapes because I think it's much easier to organize videos on the computer rather than labeling and storing tapes all the time.
Summary: I have one and Panasonic doesn't have driver or processing downloads for it or even respond to requests. The proprietary video format requires special handling in your PC and can leave you with a camera full of useless clips. Are they abandoning this product?
Summary: I purchased this camcorder just over two weeks ago and must say that I am more than pleased w/ its performance. After reading countless reviews of camcorders and handling several at local stores, I selected the SDR-S150 based on: - size - reviewed video performance - SDHC recording format I wanted a...
As good as it can be, plus Mac iMovie instructions

Summary: After opening the box and charging the battery, I had it shooting without cracking the user manual. Easy to use and confidence-inspiring. The menu system is mostly self explanatory, the only changes I made were to put it in XP (highest) quality mode, 4:3 instead of widescreen aspect ratio, disable...
