I understand that frustration, but if you know what it can and can’t do before purchasing then you will not be disappointed! Let me give some of the pros and cons to explain what I mean.It performed well as I expected except it had a major issue.The zoom is amazing.It does not look professional by any means, but it doesn’t look cheap or fuzzy either.I’d love it but less than 1 year unit will not hold a charge even when plugged in.It has a one year warranty for parts only not labor.The video quality is amazing, and if I have any complaint, it would be the size of the screen.00, it would cost almost half that price to repair the error “This battery cannot be used”.In daylight or well lit areas video is very good.Still have to remember it’s a camcorder so it’s not expected to be the best in picture mode.I always review with information that I feel others would like to know about the product as I always assume what I’m writing will influence for or against the purchase.I was especially surprised (and suspicious by then low price of the camera, but I trusted the Panasonic name and put it to the test at a 3 day live concert using 2 of these cameras to view video from 2 stages on my hotel room balcony that was easily 300 feet way.I considered buying a GoPro type action cam or a cheap dash cam as well.The date and time stamp stays on the video when playing the video on the camera, but the date and time stamp is not visible after transferring the video to a computer.Using for high school sports, basketball/football and is doing well after couple dozen games so far in last month.Even at full 90x zoom video quality is still great.I love to take pictures of birds, but they are too easily spooked before you get the picture taken.The optical zoom is very good but my one con is the auto focus is a bit slow, need to take your time when zooming in.Zoom is ridiculously good that I can see Alaska from my window Clearly now.I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW MANY SHOTS I HAVE MISSED thinking I was recording when I was not.
Went to get it for this years vacation and it is broken already.I was surprised how small it was.I bought it this model cause I had a HC-v250 Panasonic Wifi support.This little cam is one of my favorites – even over some of the Panasonic higher-end camcorders.The on-screen menu takes a few minutes to get used to, but nothing too difficult.Now I will be purchasing a battery charger before being able to use the product.This unit blew me away! I could not believe all the selective features included.Takes really good videos and pictures.PROSVery small – don’t have to worry about bulk.Some may question why you need a camcorder in the age of smart phones with up to 20 mega pixel cameras but I will tell you that if you want a device with longer range optical zoom then this is the product for you.The stabilization is good especially since this is so small it fit in you hand.Fits in the palm of your hand and so easy to use with great quality! Great quality video! I also love that this camera has a slideshow option with music to choose from.The value and so simple to handle and results? Perfect.My first 2 cameras had built in memory and SD card capability.Takes great HD movies.Then after this, it wouldn’t zoom.Easy to use.
Touch screen buttons still visable and responsive.Highly up set!!’ Great produced.But this is a problem with most camcorder.Perfect for filming my daughter and friends surf from far far away.The only drawback os that with no viewfinder the flip out lcd monitor is hard to see in brightsunlight but u can easily overlook that limitation to get a quality fullHD camcorder below $400.It’s small so it’s great for action and shooting on the fly.amazon.I will be sending the camera back.I have big hands so the touch screen is a bit cumbersome, but I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase it again.I highly recommend adding this zoom tool to your video kit.Things I love – the Zoom and works with Toshiba Flash Air.Its ok for darker lit night footage but not as good as the 770’s.I use it for videoing my daughters HS sports.Had to send back because of overheating bought an extended warranty! Shipped for repair, packaged everything correctly and when they sent it back, NO BATTERY! I am so unhappy.All was well for the first month. This thing lived up to all of my expectations, and exceeded them in some areas.
