Panasonic HC-V10

 

Very light and easy to use. Picture is very good. You lose stability when zooming in but that is the same with any camcorder unless you use a tripod.

Love This

 

Love this camcorder, its easy to use and takes great pics too. Its light weight and fits in my purse. I shake when I take video or pics and this takes the blurring out. That is a great feature. Nice to finally have pics and video that we can tell who...
