PANASONIC HC-V160EB-K Full HD Camcorder - Black

 

Not many it records thats about it, not in good quality, phone records in must higher definition, with crisper sound

Cant even hook it up to tv to see what your recording, blanks screen when you press record, this is a pretty basic feature, so the camera hasn't been used, once i realized i couldn't use it for what i wanted its been put in a draw and never used
