Summary: Overall, the video and picture quality is good. You can really see issues when you zoom in as the zoom is digital, so you are loosing pixels as you increase the zoom. It is also irritating that I had to go online to download the user manual, and the link given in the "directions" included in the box was incorrect. The cover over the memory card slot is about as poorly designed as it can be, and I doubt it will be long before it breaks.
Summary: realmente.. esta cam.. es una experiencia unica.. la nitidez es mas que buena-- los colores.. la duracion de la bateria.. lo facil de poder trabajar con ella.. mas que bien¡¡.. no tiene nada que envidiarle a panasonic o sony. ..
Summary: I got this camera and its awesome. I still have it and shoot all kinds of movies and random shots. Both the camera and video modes are great and there is no drop in quality, as is common in alot of combo cameras. Its great for shots anytime day or night or any condition. The only problem i had was the lens is not very strong or secured, i dropped it once and the whole setup went out of whack.
Summary: I bought this camera for my boyfriend and we use it all the time for shooting videos! We've used it snowboarding and it held up great in the snow and cold. The video came out great. Would definitely recommend using this for home movies.
Best value for compact size and video quality on the market
6 October 2012
Summary: I have bought TWO of these camcorders (black and red)... In my opinion, it is one of the best camcorders for it size and price on the market.. It's just too bad they discontinued the Sanyo brand...(bought out by Panasonic)... I found only 1 major drawback...it was very hard for me to find a replacement cable to use in copying the video from the camcorder to my DVD recorder...finally, after a 3 month wait, I received one from Panasonic... Highly recommend the brand..
Fair video quality yet not as easy to handle as appears
9 March 2012
Summary: Its a decent quality camcorder that is not as easy to control as it appears. The controls are somewhat cumbersome. It does produce fair quality video but dont plan to use the internal memory for video as you will only get a few seconds.
Summary: Pros: small, light, memory card slot, full HD, good battery life. Cons: not great (grainy) in low to medium light conditions; file sizes can be HUGE. Its Mpeg4 format can only be played on certain video players - my version of Windows Media Player won't handle Mpeg4 nor will my Irfanview (freeware) player (maybe there's a plug-in available). I had to download Quicktime to play the videos on my PC.
