2.0 out of 5 stars Great intentions, poor delivery, June 11, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic SDR-H80 SD and HDD Camcorder (Red) (Electronics)
I checked this out in store before buying from Amazon.com. In store, the usage, look and feel were all great. What we weren't able to see until purchasing was the quality of the video produced. As noted by another review, it's not much better (if at all!) than a 3yo cell phone video. In fact, I recently viewed a DVD made from one of our Sony Hi-8 cams (circa 2003) and the quality was very similar.

So, overall, it's really close to being exactly what I want - great optical zoom, good HDD size, the image stabilization is better than I've ever seen but the actual pixels/bits written to disk leave much to be desired.

Result - returned to Amazon for a refund, back to the drawing board as to what camera I'll end up keeping.
