Great product with a minor niggle,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic SD800 Full HD 1920x1080p (50p) 3D Ready Camcorder - Black (3MOS sensor, SD Card Recording, x20 Intelligent Zoom, 35mm Wide Angle Leica Lens, iA + Face Recognition & New Hybrid OIS) (Camera)
Others have commented on the excellence of the video produced by this device and I have nothing more to say about this. Just one small feature spoils this for me - the battery.
Previous models in this range have used a single battery type and a separate charger. So batteries can be interchanged and charged while the devices are being used. In their wisdom (??) Panasonic has introduced a revised battery for the SD800 that cannot be fitted to the older machines and must be charged while fitted to the camera. For me, this is a huge retro-step that limits the usefulness of the machine. Consumers should really make a stand against this nonsense.
But otherwise, I love the machine. Received within 24 hours of order.
