  • 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.

Video Quality Leaves Much to Be Desired

  • 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. For example, I have used this exclusively for filming events on stage indoors in a dark theater. It has disappointed. Most of the faces come out blurred and it doesn't compensate well for light faces against a dark background.

  • 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. I try using a class 10 SD-Card it does little improvement on the video quality but still performs poorly in low light condition. I would reccoment this camera to starter but would not do so for professionals.

Panasonic SDR S50

  • 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. Mine is, so I've no way of checking, but it seems to make sense given the increased pixels on an HD TV.

  • Excerpt: В дневное время суток снимает приемлемо. Однако автофокусировка отвратительная. Невероятно медленная. При съёмке, например, вида за окном и применении оптического зума более 40 - всё размыто. Не фокусируется вообще. Хоть сто лет жди. При среднем зуме фокусируется с задержкой в пару-тройку секунд. Луну вообще не снять. Любой зум больше 30 - одна большая размазня. Не фокусируется вообще.
  • Pros: Размеры, цена.
  • Cons: Аккумулятор, медленный автофокус.
