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.

what happened

Jeevan Patil, Amazon
12 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. When I turned it on and tried to use it, I got the recording of sounds in the room but no picture.

Don't go with Panasonic

  • 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. If you are looking at spending 700+ dollars on something to record your families memories, I would consider spending an extra $200 for something that is going to give you pleasure throughout the years.

Good Idea, but need great improvements

John, Amazon
14 September 2003
  • Summary: Great idea, but not very functional. I bought one and kept it for three weeks until I got frustrated and almost drop kicked it. Picture quality is OK, but very frustrating when you try to view it. DVD disc does not work w/ any computer or DVD player. It works sometimes when connected directly to computer.
