Summary: Absolutely fantastic picture quality, due to high quality lens and 3ccd sensor. Many manual controls to help achieve great video. Sound is very good and it is stereo. Files are easy to edit in video editor programs. The stabilization works excellent, although I still recommend a tripod for best results. Takes a while to get used to the handling, it is easier to use two hands if you want to zoom smoothly.
Summary: Actually I bought this as a backup to my other identical camera. It is a perfect SD camera, sharp images, many options, 3 mp stills, small flash, fits in a very small place and the batteries are small and last up to a hour. I have recommended it to friends and they are happy also.
Summary: I'm surprise this camcorder isn't more popular. Its the perfect camcorder for capturing and sharing family moments. Bottom line - this camcorder has me recording, sharing, and archiving family videos because it makes it so easy.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Simple Controls
Summary: Pros: easy to operate right out of the box. Great quality videos in outdoor conditions. Compact. Intuitive controls. Pop up flash for stills. Cons: need to get used to the holding position so the index finger does cover the lens. But this is take care of by attaching provided grip assist.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Great Picture Quality, Simple Controls
Summary: Excellent camcorder. Did take some time to figure out how to de-interlace videos and create best quality DVDs but am very happy with the results now. 3CCDs in daylight give unbeatable video and low light performance is decent, if not very good. Very satisfied with the purchase. Panasonic makes some really good camcorders. 5 stars all the way!
