functional and simple to use,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic V500M Full HD 1920 x 1080p (50p) 3D Ready Camcorder - Black (1MOS Sensor, 50x Intelligent Zoom, 32GB, Built-in Flash, SD Card Recording, Face Recognition) 3.0 inch LCD (Camera)
Still early days with the V500M which I bought a replacement for my old sony video camera but great little camera that does what I require very well. Only drawback I found is the lack of a viewfinder, common on most new video cameras,which made using the lcd screen in bright sunlight difficult, having to rely on some quesswork as to what I was filming. Other than that delighted with the results so far. Trial tests have produced very good results and the camera is easy to use although I haven't had the opportunity to use all the facilities available. Particularly impressed with the zoom capability though! If, like me, you're looking for a budget videocam that's straightforward to use and produces decent results then you could doworse that the V500M. I added a 32Gb SD card which I'd recommend for those times when you can't download your filming for a while.
