5.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic V700 Camcorder Review, 27 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic V700 Full HD 1920 x 1080p (50p) 3D Ready Camcorder - Black (1MOS Sensor, 46x Intelligent Zoom, SD Card Recording, 28mm Wide Angle with Face Recognition) 3.0 inch LCD (Camera)
This is my very first camcorder and wanted one that will last a few years before becoming antiquated.
I chose the V700 against the Sony CX260 & Canon R36 as it has the better reviews and the best sensor size. Having compared all 3 I am satisfied I chose the best option for my needs.
Build quality is very good and size is excellent for most hand sizes.
Features of the V700 are reasonably simple to use and the camcorder can be used without too much fiddling with settings etc. If left on default settings it is an easy point and shoot camcorder producing great results that would satisfy most people except perhaps those who have higher requirements.
Quality of video is excellent and the zoom operates smoothly and quietly.
As I walk with a stick, filming and walking seemed a problem but not with this camcorder due its wonderfull efficient image stabilisation. So if I can get good results anyone can.
Interior usage is very good both due to wide angle lens and low light facility.
I purchasede the high quality Sandisk 32GB 45MB/s Extreme Video SDHC Card and this gets the best out of the videos. Will invest in a 2nd card later which with the 2nd battery due from Panasonic soon will suffice all my needs.
So in conclusion I would sum by highly recommending the V700 to those both new to or upgrading their camcorder. You will unlikely be dissapointed. Like all things though it does depend on your own personal needs. For me I feel as I have purchased the best within a reasonable budget and will unlikely need to buy again for a long time. So go on try it in the shops get the feel of it, go home and buy on the web and save yourself a bundle. Oh and get the card I mentioned above it`s a great investment.
