Summary: This is a very good little camcorder with a powerful zoom. The screen is easy to see even in sunlight. The zoom button is very sensitive and takes a little practice. My only wish is for a bigger record button, it's tiny. The sound is good though you will have issues on a windy day, I covered my microphone with foam to dampen the wind noise. The start up is very quick so you have a chance when some interesting wildlife suddenly appear.
great inexpensive camcorder with the best zoom ever.

Summary: this camera really has no bells and whistles no light for filming in the dark HOWEVER, the zoom is fabulous! it plays back on computer or tv perfectly and these are the qualities i wanted most for daytime sports and hunting and filming at drag strip. love it!
Summary: I bought this for my daughter for christmas. She rodeos and wanted a video camera to record her runs.She says she loves it! It has awesome zoom and she likes how she can plug it in to her tv and watch whatever she filmed.
Summary: Very good product for the price. Debated if I needed an HD camera but this takes good video and the zoom feature really makes scenic video much more interesting than any HD pocket camera. Easy to use.
Summary: I don't really know much of anything about camcorders, but I do know that out of the box this one seems to be working very well for me. Know problems or glitches as of yet. The menu can be a little cumbersome, but that's about it. It seems to have a good image and the controls are smooth and easy to use.
Summary: This camera has turned out to be better than I had dreamed. It zooms in unbelievably, takes beautiful pictures and videos. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Great piece of equipment for the VFW, fills all needs for the editor of the paper and web master.
Summary: I did expect the Panasonic SDR_S70S to be an average camcorder, but it far exceded my expectations.Great video and sound,easy to transfer to my computer,and easy to capture still pictures from my video.The zoom is as good as all the reviews I have read brag about,you will be face to face with your subject even at 100 yards.If you are looking for a reasonable priced non HD camcorder check this out.
Summary: this is my first digital cam so I don't have anything to compare. I chose this over sony handycam because of higher pixel in video and photo mode even though sony rave about thier lenses. well, it definately is not close to high def, but it is a good quality image, and easy to use. the manual shows they offer 4 different batteries for longer run times, and go figure the one that comes with the camera is the cheapest, kinda crappy but still good for an hour of shooting.
