Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic SD80 Full HD Camcorder - Red (SD Card Recording, x42 Intelligent Zoom, x37 Optical Zoom, Wide Angle Lens & iA + Face Recognition & New Hybrid OIS) (Electronics)
BATTERY LASTs QUITE A LONG TIME FOR A CAMCORDER. Item IS VERY LIGHT, child could use in 30 seconds, no learning curve. You get a dvd to load on your computer if you want to download pictures for viewing on pc which is simple to use and most of all works. Like all camcorders and cameras the weakness is always if facing bright light burned out images due to the sensor and associated microelectronics. This item is value for money as far as any electronic item is value for money. Consider this item as something that you can pop into your shirt pocket when not in use as its so small, the results are not bad, so unless you want to pay a great deal of money to get a slightly better picture. I would be satisfied with this item. One minor point is the recordings are saved onto a memory card, this card can simply be inserted into a sd card on a Panasonic blue ray player which are now being sold for a song compared to what they used to cost, the result is the best picture you will get being displayed on your TV screen. One can save to a dvd etc on a computer if wanted but I have found there is always a slight reduction in picture quality as the format is changed.
