Kelly, Norwich Just point and shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent size, memory, and battery. Brilliant image quality, can shoot amazing phootage, love the fact that it has an automatic light which comes on when you need it, and turns off when you don't. Camcorder settings are great too.
Bad points:
Probably not good for all day filming, as the battery is only about 3 hours, but I filmed all I wanted on my weeks holiday, and you can purchase more batteries if required.

Philip, portsmouth Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great price for a quality Panasonic camcorder. Small size makes it very easy to carry about and use. Hard disk plus SD card slot makes for many hours of easy recording. It is 'standard definition' ( i.e. dvd quality ) but that was known at purchase and means my old PC editing set up can handle it. Not for the serious film maker but perfect for the occasional point and shoot trips out.
Bad points:
Only slight down side is that the files are output as MPEG2, so you need an editing program that can handle MPEG2 or you will have to 'convert' the files to something else ( i.e. avi ) and lose a bit of quality in that process.
