Only wish it was brighter

S. Prokop "Cartoon Lover", Amazon
6 March 2013
  • Summary: I know that the problem is lighting. But I wish that it had better lighting for indoor shots. My other issue is that I found it confusing at first when I was trying to record, and not realizing it was just "ready" and I hadn't started recording. Missed a lot of stuff before I caught on. That was user error, but I never had that problem with any other video cameras in my past. I've had this one since 2010 and I still love it! Still works great!!

This is a camera you'll want to use and have fun using--buy one!

  • Summary: I bought this to replace an older tape-type camcorder, and found this at a terrific price. It's not HD but the picture quality is perfectly fine. The 70X zoom is beyond belief. The device is also very light and easy to handle, and transferring video files from the SD card is quick and easy.

About as good as expected

BSC, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using this camera for nearly two years now and I'm pretty satisfied with it. The one thing that lead me to buy Panasonic was that I had good low-light performance from a previous Panasonic camera and I was not disappointed by this one either. I've taken this camera with me several times overseas, and vacation videos are the types of videos that you want to capture in good quality.

Sports camcorder

V. Patino, Amazon
27 February 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this camcorder to video my teenagers soccer games. I could have bought an HD camcorder and I could have bought a newer model, but I chose this sd model because it was more economical and I just didn't think I needed all the bells and whistles of an HD camcorder. I love the 70x zoom, although, at that zoom level you really needed a steady hand to stabilize the image.

NICE N EASY

MOUNTAINEER, Amazon
28 September 2010
  • Summary: THIS WAS SHIPPED VERY PROMPTLY AND ARRIVED IN ONE PEICE. THE CAMERA DOES A NICE JOB TAKES VERY CLEAR VIDEO AND PICTURES. IT IS SIMPLE TO USE AND IS VERY EASY TO SLIDE IN A PURSE IF YOU DONT FEEL LIKE CARRYING THE CASE (PURCHASED SEPERATELY). IT FITS IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND. THE ONLY ISSUE I FOUND IS THAT VERY FAST ACTION CLOSE UP IS PIXELATED AND NOT REAL CLEAR, BUT I HAVENT HAD IT LONG ENOUGH TO REALLY PLAY WITH IT AND SEE IF I CAN USE OTHER SETTINGS.

Great Camera for under $200!!

Vaca005 "J.Vaca", Amazon
6 April 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera about 3 months ago so I wanted to do some testing before I posted a review. For under $200 not a bad camera at all. I do a lot of sports recordings so the 70X optical zoom really comes in handy. I turn off the digital zoom; its useless. 70X is more than enough for this camera. The OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) is awesome! I have very shaky hands so at 70X zoom you can imagine how shaky the picture would be w/out the OIS. It really comes in handy.

Super ZOOM, Light, great camcorder

Network Pro "cubanomx", Amazon
14 March 2010
  • Summary: The camera size is just amazing. Is very small and light weight. The zoom is superb, 70x optical give will blow you out. Pros: Size Zoom Record to SD Direct record in MOD format (MOD is a MPG file, you only need to rename the files). You can play MOD with NERO and VLC Player without issues. You can rename the MOD files to MPG and play it with IOMEGA Screenplay or ASUS OhOhPlay in your big tv.

Handy, Affordable with minor pitfalls

Don BeeJay "BeeJay", Amazon
2 February 2010
  • Summary: OIA: Good Webmode: Great, but restarts with a new 10min snippet everytime you pause and resume 70X Zoom: Great upto 30X zoom and the image starts to wobble as you record. This problem might be resolved with a tripod but I am unsure about it. Price: Affordable. Size: Handy and easy to carry along. Video Quality: Good Picture Quality: Mediocre in picture mode. Swivel LCD: Great option. Menu button: Could be better!
