not impressed!

J. Hodgkin, Amazon

  • Summary: This didn't zoom well at all and the picture was very blurry! I am not sure this is true for all of these cameras because mine was a return. I wouldn't recommend it.

Great camera terrible -really terrible software

Michael Penney, Amazon

  • Summary: Te zoom is great, the optics are fine for a cam with a zoom of this power. Obviously low light will suffer when zoomed, but we have been able to get some incredible shots with this camer. Unfornatunatley the software for viewing those shots is right out of the 90s. Primitive, buggy SLOW.

Panasonic Camcorder

Stacy, Amazon
11 August 2010
  • Summary: My Husband bought me this camcorder for my birthday and I loved the small size. I was able to fit it in the same bag as my regular camera. But the quality of pictures and video's it took was something to be desired. The pictures were always grainy and I could never get it to work outdoors.

good design but POOR video quality

WYF, Amazon
18 January 2010
  • Summary: First of all, I am not new to camcorders and I read many many reviews here before the purchase. I have used a SONY mini-DV DCR-HC32 (entry-level) for 4 years so I have a benchmark to compare. For Panasonic SDR-S26, the sharpness of the video (played from the camcorder directly or DVD) was very poor.

Very poor quality pictures

  • Summary: I bought this to replace a micro mv tape camcorder, but the quality of this one is many many times inferior to the older technology, particularly for still images. They are incredibly grainy.

Poor picture quality

E. C. Mills "T_Rex35", Amazon
31 March 2010
  • Summary: I would go as far as to say that indoors, this camera is UNUSABLE. This is my 3rd camcorder in 15 years, the previous being Sony Handycams. As I own a Panasonic digital camera which takes very good quality photographs, I mistakenly thought this would match up in terms of quality.

Disappointing picture quality

C. Hoon, Amazon
22 March 2010
  • Summary: Basically you get what you pay for. Easy operating software, performs as a basic camcorder. Has a 70x zoom, which is interesting but it's difficult to see where you would need such a large zoom. Very disappointing picture quality when played back on the computer, very pixellated and noisy.

Nice price, poor footage, I mean really poor footage

NI reviewer, Amazon
14 November 2009
  • Summary: Like others, i read reviews and based my decision to buy on cost and reviews. Amazon got the package to me quickly and I took proceeded to take several months of footage without actually checking the playback, I assumed all would be ok. The footage included priceless footage of my newborn boy.

Cheap......and NASTY!!!

C. D. Back "Chrispy", Amazon

  • Summary: Small is not always beautiful!!! I purchased this camcorder after reading plenty of reviews, most of which told me that the footage from this camcorder was of a good quality. They are so wrong! I appreciate that this camera is at the budget end of the market and is MPEG2 SD quality.
