Did I get the same camera as everyone else?
on April 1, 2012
I got this camera with the intention of trying it and would probably send it back, but thought, "I should at least give it a try, it's a great price." And I'm actually very confused... did I get the same camera that everyone else was reviewing? It says the same model on the side, and it looks the same, but the performance is leaps and bounds above what everyone is saying.
Last night I used it in a dark room with one small light, because people had said that it was only good in very good lighting. My result: AMAZING VIDEO! I was able to zoom in fully and read stuff under low light situations, even with small writing on it from across the room.
I also tested the audio. I stood across a large room and spoke loud then very quiet, then loud and it picked it up all and was audible. I also had no problem working with the video format in full 1080p HD video in even the most basic free software on both PC and Mac.
I'm not sure if they've redone it since everyone else got theirs, but this one is great! I HIGHLY recommend this. For the price, it really can't be beat. If people want proof, I can post video samples in both high and low light situations with quiet and loud audio. Hats off to Panasonic!
