Great Picture Quality and easy editing with DVD-RAM

dieselman7_3, Ebay

Typical DVD camcorder

future_digital, Ebay
14 January 2007
  • Summary: Lower resolution that even the cheapest Mini-DV, and nearly impossible to edit properly since scenes are stored on DVD. DVD is NOT recommended if you want to do any editing of any kind. See ANY Mini-DV instead.

Very good camcorder

Chris Twist, Amazon

  • Summary: I have owned this camera for about 1 year, and it has performed very well and is fully compatible with Windows XP. It produces very good quality and has been completely reliable. I suggest that you should buy wide-angle and telephoto accessory lenses.

  • Summary: I bought this camera during xmas of 2003. The camera is really easy to use, but you need a Master's degree in computer programing to get the software to work. I have had little success in getting the usb connection to work.

crashes and destroys everything I've recorded

sammy, Amazon
18 May 2005
  • Summary: After less than two years, this recorder crashes and destroys everything I've recorded every time I try to record on a 60 minute DVD for more than 55 minutes. It works fine as long as I remember to stop it before 55 minutes, but losing everything seems like an awfully big price to pay for losing...

what happened

11 March 2004
  • Summary: I bought this video camera to record the birth of my child. I got it and immediately checked it to make sure that everything was in working condition. It worked fine. Several months down the line I took the camera out to make sure what kind of card I needed to purchase for taking still photos.

Don't buy this product!

  • Summary: I have had my Panasonic VDR M30 camcorder since Christmas, 2003. I have made five calls to their tech support line, where their technical people admit there is a problem and tell me they are working on fixing the drivers for the camcorder's software to make it work with Windows XP.

  • Summary: I'll go into the negative first. Software: the software did take me a few tries initially installing it on our desktop, was kind of a pain, because the instructions are not very detailed.

Don't go with Panasonic

Amazon
6 December 2003
  • Summary: I urge you to take a look at the Sony DVD200 or 300 series camcorders. From soup to nuts the Sony product is much better. Do a simple compare and you will find that the Panasonic camcorder does not have half the technology or enhancements.

Like it!

Jeevan Patil, Amazon

  • Summary: Small, cute, fairly intuitive - works good, except night vision(not that great). Needed to refer manual for seeing couple of things - "DVD needs to be finalized to play in DVD/laptop" & "how to connect AC power to finalize disc". Very convenient that output goes to DVD disc directly!
