This is NOT an HD camcorder
on September 18, 2012
I got this camcorder this past week. I tested with a few sample videos and when i transferred the files over from my class 10 hcsd card to my laptop, which i got a year ago. The video quality was all fuzzy. It looked like i shot a video from my 10 year old camcorder. I recorded a sample video with both my camcorder in the 720p and with my smartphone in 720p. The quality was beyond horrible but the video quality from my smartphone was soooo much better and more clear.
I contacted Panasonic and they said it was defective. So i returned it to amazon and got another camcorder thinking the one I had was defective.
The second camcorder had the same issues has the first one. Unless I have the worst luck in the world, this is a horrible camcorder. I will not buy Panasonic for a while because of this.
To me and to others, it seems like Panasonic just upgraded their standard definition camcorder to HD but not actually do any upgrading.
