Excellent CamCorder = Query editing,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic V100 Full HD 1920 x 1080 Camcorder - Black (42x Intelligent Zoom, SD Card Recording, Power OIS, Face Recognition) 2.7 inch LCD (Camera)
I chose this CamCorder after checking out various reviews and price comparisons. After a few days usage I found the CamCorder very easy to use..with plenty of Videoing options available. However...prospective buyers, who like me, may be considering their first HD CamCorder will have very little trouble using the Cam itself....but they should be aware that once your video is uploaded to your PC..the editing can be difficult....This CamCorder records in AVCHD format...which is very good in itself...but can be difficult to edit. The editing programme that comes with the CamCorder (HD Writer LE) is quite basic...and the uneven playback of the Video in the AVCHD format makes any involved editing (both Video and Audio) not a pleasant experience. My advice would be to convert the AVCHD format to MPEG2 format (can be done within the editing programme)..and once saved....do your involved editing in a different editing programme....Many are available that will edit MPEG2 video's. Summary...I liked the CamCorder even more..once I found out how best to edit Video's filmed on it.
