25 February 2010
Summary: Great zoom but actually 70x Optical and not 78x (that's the enhanced optical zoom). The video quality is quite poor, even on the highest setting. I bought it to record shots at 300+ yards and it does the job.
Summary: The best feature of this camcorder is the 78X optical zoom. Actually, it is about the only redeeming feature. There are plenty of zoom tests on You-Tube which convinced me to buy this model. If you are a birdwatcher and want to really get up close, this is the camcorder for you.
Summary: clarity and quality is not so good ...u can say even worse but the zoom is awesome you can zoom the moon ..you can see it so closely...no touchscreen which we cant expect in this price..anyways records easily, easy setup, user friendly...but still they can improve on the quality..
Summary: I thought that it was me, but when I read the reviews, I see that the video quality is a major drawback of this videocamera for many reviewers. It is a very interesting phenomenon, but video quality does actually improve when you zoom in.
Summary: I used the camcorder for my Northern Europe trip. The photo quality is poor but video is ok. The best feature is the zoom which is great for viewing distant scenary. It is very lightweight and super handy for travelling.
Summary: I think the main selling point for this camera is the incredible zoom. And it's quite awsome. If that's what your buying for it's great. Other than that it has really bad indoor image quality and oddly the image quality gets better the more you zoom.
Summary: The zoom goes so far that you cant breathe if you want to see what you are doing. Pretty impressive. I wouldn't pay more than $60 for this thing. I checked on youtube to see the quality before I bought it and this doesn't compare, even after messing with all the settings
Summary: This camcorder looks great and is very easy to use. BUT the video quality is poor. Worse than my previous Panasonic DV camcorder. I had a chat with someone at a Panasonic shop who said that the picture will look worse if you are viewing it on an HD TV.
Summary: Good wee close up camera for general use but it cant cope with scenery at all. It performs poorly in low light conditions. Having said that it has an amazing zoom and is pin sharp when it is at close range!
Summary: Item arived late according to arival date but item arived in good condition and as describe. Quality wise, overall is a good camera. Picture quality not really as perfect as in the description.
