Panasonic DMR-BS850EBK Blu Ray DVD Recorder

Panasonic DMR-BS850 Freesat HD Blu-ray Recorder Review


Panasonic introduces a pricey, yet excellent dual-tuner HD Satellite recording solution, and throws Blu-ray into the mix.

Panasonic AG-DVX100B review:


Great sound, progressive modes, and image control; professional-caliber viewfinder and controls; wide lens; particularly well suited for multicamera projects.

No high-definition capability; no 16:9-native chips; lens is short for some applications; moderately steep learning curve.

Panasonic has listened. The third incarnation of the AG-DVX100 offers unrivalled bang for the buck in a prosumer standard-definition MiniDV camera.

Panasonic AG-DVX100A review: Panasonic AG-DVX100A


Review summary The Panasonic AG-DVX100A is the kind of camera that sends shivers down the spines of pro videographers and serious amateurs with modest budgets. If you relish the rare pieces of gear that are both affordable and designed for professional...

Array of frame-rate options, including 24P; advanced image and audio settings; wonderful viewfinder and control layout; wide lens.

Limited battery life; lens is short for some applications; lacks true 16x9 chips; moderately tough learning curve; not the best in low light.

If you're looking for a MiniDV camera for pro-level videography with a film-like look, this 24P model is a top contender.

Panasonic AG-DVX100


Warm, saturated colors ; Shoots at 24p ; Produces awesome filmlike look ; Wide field of view ; Wide breadth of custom image presets

Only 10¥ zoom ; Slow autoiris ; LCD color values can be sketchy ; No still-picture capabilities

Panasonic AG-DVX100 review: Panasonic AG-DVX100


Panasonic brings 24P to the masses. If you're a low-budget producer of narrative features for theatrical distribution, why shoot PAL when the AG-DVX100 delivers professional features--excepting interchangeable lenses--in a MiniDV camcorder that...

Real 24P at an affordable price for serious videographers; produces filmic look; professional controls; phantom power and two-channel audio control.

High-contrast artifacting; noisy zoom and autofocus mechanisms; lack of gain adjustment and autofocus in progressive mode; only 10X optical zoom.

This professional 24P camera in compact dress raises the bar for its semipro price class.

Panasonic AG-DVX100 3CCD 24p Mini DV Camcorder Review


No camera in recent memory has generated as much buzz as the Panasonic AG-DVX100. This is the first consumer-priced camera to offer 24 frame per second progressively scanned video (24p), which (theoretically) makes video look like it was shot on film....

Exceptional picture quality ; Six customizable modes ; Excellent progressive video ; Flexible image tweaking

No auto focus in progressive modes

A revolutionary professional camera that allows shooters to switch between cinema-like images or standard video modes.
