4.0 out of 5 stars Quality are you ready?, 22 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic X900M Full HD 1920 x 1080p (50p) 3D Ready Camcorder with Built-In Viewfinder, 3.5 inch LCD - Black (Camera)
Fantastic camera as usual from Panasonic, picture quality is so sharp it is almost too sharp to view! Are you ready? the 50P at 1080 as I have found to my dismay is not compatible with the blu-ray standard as yet. I have software that can cope with editing the footage but when it comes to writing it to blu-ray nothing other than the very basic software that comes with the camera can write at the best quality setting of 50P Having said that it is my fault for not fully researching it beforehand even after several weeks looking at different cameras something always catches you out. The camera can downgrade its filming rate to 50i which of course is compatible with most things. Once again a fantastic camera especially in low light situations where the colour reproduction is incredible.

Panasonic's response, do you get this?
When the file gets split after 4gig or so another file is created BUT this looses frames including sound, my concert recording was ruined by this in the middle of a song, their response "In regards to your question there is a max file size limit of 2GB on that camcorder after that it will start a new file. This is a limitation of the file format (extended FAT) This is not a fault condition. It's not a professional camera. "

It does seem odd in a camera that offers a 3 second pre-record buffer (IIRC) that it can't buffer a few frames while closing one file and opening the next !

More importantly Panasonic refuse to admit there is a serious design fault with this frame-loss problem after 3 months a 3 letters they reply "we have passed your comments on to our marketing dept. for future planning" What good is that to me? a lot of money and a useless-for-serious-work camera!
