Nice inexpensive camera

 

As with any camera it as it's up's and down's. For a B Roll Live Event (IE Wedding, Small Concert camera) it does great so far!

LOVE AT FIRST MEGABYTE?

 

Fearful of leaving the "comfort zone" of Mini DV tape, I was committed to being among the last of the dinosaurs-- until my DVX100B's began displaying the infamous "T-REEL LOCK." The clouds surrounding tapeless storage and other High Def clouds are...

Gets the Job Done

 

Use it for web videos, recording presentations. Doesn't shoot well in low lighting and I don't trust the auto settings, so I manual everything. Still, nice camera. Works well. Lightweight. Nice picture quality.

Roaming Focus

 

I bought this camera as a stop-gap camera to shoot a bunch of sit-down interviews. I generally liked the camera and audio and it has a great stabilization system. BUT when I got the footage back to edit from the interviews (camera locked down on stix)...

Great step up into the prosumer arena...

 

I bought this camera to boost my profile for video jobs. While I felt at ease shooting HD with my then trendy Canon Vixia M-41. I always viewed my work as it's not what you shoot, but what you do with the footage.

Great Effort By Panasonic

 

Although I wish the sensor was a bit bigger to accommodate the massive pixel count (causing the cam to suffer in low light)- there is allot to love about this camera. Great form factor, easy menu navigation, sharp touch screen, and lots of recording...

Japan-only - Cannot be registered in US

 

This is good camera at a friendly price. The digital zoom is not all that spectacular (at least not through the LCD) but the controls and menus are easy to access and use. The output looks good and the color is good.

Don't be fooled by spending more

 

I have used this camcorder for about a year with great success professionally. We mainly shoot aviation action dvds. I use 1080 60P in case we need to edit up some smooth slow motion. I have shot in low light, bright light and with the sun at me. The...
