Panasonic HDC-MDH1 HD Camcorder

 

Good image quality, good sound, pro look, good stabilizer, very light weight ; Overall very good value for money

Low light is not perfect (work around it with external lights) ; AVCHD files not good to edit, have to convert them to MPG ; Small and low quality EVF ; A couple more controls with dedicated buttons would be nice
