Good

 

Is the cheapest i've owned but results indicate it is a quality product. Have a supplementary battery and recommend one to travellers. Hard to be dissatisfied.

User friendly quality pictures (colour & resolution). Tolerates low light lightweight and is value for money. Took it overseas - fell off my hand but functions well. Zoom is handy but like all ccorder a tripod is recommended for zooming. Happy. Mix of...

Av cable for downloading is a propriety cable and not readily available if replacement is necessary. Bought some Sony dvd's in Europe. Appeared to record ok but is not responding when played back. Not sure about the audio capture and clarity.

Product Specifications

Panasonic is introducing a series of new DVD video cameras that support a wide range of DVD recording media. The series includes the VDR-D160 as well, which is a compact model that attaches importance to the reduction of weight, thus completing a full line-up of DVD video cameras satisfying a variety of needs. Furthermore, in addition to conventional DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, and DVD-R recording media, the new digital video cameras support dual layer (DL) DVD-R discs with a storage capacity of 2.6GB, thus overwhelmingly excelling conventional single layer DVD-R discs with a storage capacity of 1.4GB and making the new models much more user-friendly than conventional models.
