the LAST 2 REVIEWS are incorrect !
on September 18, 2011
Dear All ... The last 2 reviews were probably done by people who didn't know what they were doing or talking about ! ... but there again, they could have been trying to compare it to a $5000 TV studio camera ! Who KNOWZ ! ! Maybe the competition became jealous !!!!!! :) :) ...or else they just smoked a LOT of weed and got lost in the back-lighting ! !
I have owned several PRO cameras over the last 20 years .
I have owned my Pana. SDR-H100 for several months and have had good results so far . It FAR exceeds my old Sony BETA-PRO camcorder that cost $1000's .... and cost $100's in mechanical repairs on an every-other month basis due to its' age . BUT I'm gonna' miss my SONY ! !
The Pana. (so far) is user-friendly and easy to handle . The "finger" controls are easy to use ... as well as navigating through the "on-screen-display" . Picture quality and Audio quality are VERY GOOD when using a Series 10 SD Card (16 GIG+) in XP mode . The manual says that the internal 80 GIG HD can get "confused" by heavy bumps or LOUD sounds ..... I have yet to find this problem .
It's NOT a "Studio TV Camera" .... it's VERRRY small & lightweight in comparrison .... and it has a LOT of good stuff going for it for the price ! !
I highly recommend this product to the LOW$ to MED$ Spender .
I ALSO recommend that you "DO YOUR HOMEWORK" before you purchase ANYTHING !
