3.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic HX-DC- 1
Just purchased this product and was very impressed with the capabilities it seems to provide. Operation seems pretty straight forward and when tested initially looked good. I did have a small issue when the SD card was removed with an MP4 video stored on it and then playing back on my pc, even though the data was copied directly to my HD the image was very jerky.

This review is from: Panasonic HX-DC1 HD Camcorder - Red (14MP Stills, 1920x1080, 5x Optical Zoom, iFrame) 3-inch LCD (Electronics)
Only had this camcorder a few weeks wanted something small and light so when i'v finished filming i can just slip it in my pocket. Went for Panasonic because of their good name in camcorders and was not disappointed seems to be well made which is what you would expect from Panasonic.haven't put it to the test yet but so far it shoots good HD vid at full 1080i and photos at 14mega pixels. Operating instruction is simple and well laid out but to be honest menu on cam is quite easy to follow.got mine in red metallic looks good and a bit different than the the usual black that i normally buy Would recommend to anybody who wants a small but good quality camcorder for 150. Would also recommend buying additional transcend 16gb SDHC class 10 memory card. AMAZON 14.99.Hope this review helps......

Only received this item today but have already made a very short video and taken a couple of still pictures. For the money it so far seems to be very good value, being a camcorder and stills device all rolled into one easily pocket-able camcorder/camera.

3.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic HX-DC- 1, 13 Dec 2011
This review is from: Panasonic HX-DC1 HD Camcorder - Red (14MP Stills, 1920x1080, 5x Optical Zoom, iFrame) 3-inch LCD (Electronics)
Just purchased this product and was very impressed with the capabilities it seems to provide. Operation seems pretty straight forward and when tested initially looked good. I did have a small issue when the SD card was removed with an MP4 video stored on it and then playing back on my pc, even though the data was copied directly to my HD the image was very jerky. When playing direct from the video via the HDMI cable there was not real issue. Not sure if this means you will never be able to download and playback good quality videos on a pc and that means a huge data card!!
The real upset for me was having mastered the basics I then took this to my daughters graduation, set it up for low light environment and started to record on a 16 Gb SD card, all was okay on the walk up to the stage but as she stepped on to the stage the camera seemed to lock out with the image becoming distorted. I then frantically rebooted the camera only to find out that the video was recording but was unable to focus. By the time all of this was sorted game over, missed the event.
I am now going to return the camera to the shop whence it came.

Still working out all the instructions for this new toy of my sons but so far the excellent reviews (previous to this one which is going to be very non technical and breif) have been accurate to a fault. My son who is 10 years old had this unit for christmas and loves it. He settled in using it without any issues except the speed with which the battery expires - so if you are thinking of buying one - get another battery pack and charger or you will be very disappointed. Having said that the picture quality and filming on this little unit is quite superb and would satisfy any one who simply wants to capture a special moment wihtout all the headache of complex cameras.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great camera!, 4 Jan 2012

I bought this for my husband for Chrstmas. It's a great camera and recorder. It's compact and he loved it, especially the colour as the red is bit different from the usual dark colours.
