5-0 out of 5 stars Great inexpensive holdover until the DVDs mature
The PV-L424 is a pretty cool piece of gear. (With virtually no reviews)

We just got it yesterday for $419. It can be found a little cheaper, but check store reviews...

We almost bought the PCV-L552 for its big view finder and 27x optical zoom, but after a lot of digging on obscure web sites, we found that older camera suffers from a dew detector light that goes off too easily, shutting down the camera for hours. The PV-L424 just came out in 2004.

The 20x PV-L424 optical zoom is amazing. Things still look good at 40x digital, can read a UPC bar code from across the room. Things look tolerable at 120x, but ridiculous at 750k. There a single digit from the bar code fills the screen and is almost unreadable due to pixilation.

It's kind of slim, better looking than the photo.

Menus and controls seem intelligently laid out. What's used most seems to have a single button for it.

I like the way the LCD screen swivels around so that you could actually dictate into it and see yourself. It's smart enough to know to flip the image right side up when I do that.

I can't say anything yet for the durability.

We chose this VHS-C thing because I think all playback equipment for formats other than this and DVD will be difficult to find in 50 years. And the DVDs suffer from $10 disk costs (for 30 minutes) and the resolution won't match the MiniDVs until they change the image format to MPEG2. The PV-L424 seems like a great inexpensive holdover until the DVDs mature.

1-0 out of 5 stars Mislead & Disappointed
The camcorder does not have the built-in SD drive, nor the digital still photo capabilities that are listed as included features in the product description.

2-0 out of 5 stars Works very well while it works.
I have worked with quite a few of these transcribers over the years and this would be my least favorite. It works well for a while, but then the rewind and fast forward goes out on the foot pedal and then goes out on the machine itself. Normally transcribers last longer than these seem to. A co-worker has gone through 4 of them in 2 years. We keep asking administration to switch to a different brand, but they say these are cheaper. You get what you pay for, I guess. ... Read more

Sales Rank: 1727

Amazon.com Product Description

The compact Panasonic PV-DV53 MiniDV camcorder is an affordable way to enter into the world of digital video. It features a 10x optical zoom, 700x digital zoom, built-in light, and 2.5-inch LCD.

Optics
The PV-DV53 offers a 680K pixel CCD providing crisp, sharp pictures. Shooting from far distances is no problem with the PV-DV73's 10x optical zoom and 700x digital zoom. With Panasonic's introduction of Dual D-EIS (digital electronic image stabilization), you can use this same technology in both the record and playback modes to remove additional jitter from previously recorded video.

Digital Stills
The PV-DV53 still can capture digital still images and store them on the MiniDV tape. You can then use Panasonic's PhotoVu serial connection to transfer images to your PC.

More Features
The cinema mode enables you to record video in wide screen mode, giving you a 16:9 aspect ratio that's the same as a movie screen. When played back on a television the result is dramatic looking cinema-like movies at home.

The picture-in-picture feature allows you to insert a previously taken digital still image into the video you're recording. The still image is taken using the PhotoShot digital still feature and appears on the right side of the video you're recording. The video and miniaturized still shot then appear together during playback

Other features include:

  • 2.5-inch tiltable LCD screen.
  • Electronic Image Stabilazation to correct camera shaking, giving you smooth and stable pictures.

Inputs and Outputs
The PV-DV53 comes with the standard DV IEEE 1394 port (also known as FireWire; Panasonic refers to this connection as iLink) for a super-fast, lossless connection to a PC or other DV machines.

MiniDV Format
MiniDV is the preferred format for personal and broadcast-quality video, highly regarded for its high audio and image quality. MiniDV delivers a 20 percent clearer picture than analog camcorder formats. This is all delivered on a cassette that's 1/12th the size of a standard VHS tape. A MiniDV tape offers digital recording time of 2 full hours--20 times the capacity of a CD. You'll also get minimal color noise interference for a more stable picture.

Size and Contents
The camcorder measures 3.5 x 2.9 x 7.1 inches and weighs 1.3 pounds. This package includes the PV-DV53 camcorder, CARD LINK PhotoVu Link, AC adapter, battery pack, shoulder strap, A/V cable (mini-3 RCA), serial cable, remote control, lens cap, and CD-ROM with digital still and video editing software. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars 96K effective resolution
the effective resolution of this camera is 96K, which is worse than most Hi-8 cameras. it supposedly has a 1/4 CCD with 680K gross, but this is probably myth. do not believe anything you see on camcorderinfo.com about this camera.
if you ever had a Hi-8 you would be greatly disappointed by the quality, although you can still recognize the face of your wife and the color of her dress. not much more though.
Panasonic do not disclose the effective resolution or the gross of this camera just to trick people who think miniDV means good quality.

4-0 out of 5 stars DARN GOOD CAMERA -- FOR THE MONEY
Last year, I needed a SMALL, light, portable, tough, inexpensive, mini-DV camera to schlep around Croatia and Hungary -- during the hot summer. Trains, planes, and buses bumped myPanasonic PVDV53 MiniDV Palmcorder along --which took GREAT (!!!) motion pictures. I wrote" motion" because I practically never used the still digital capability. NOTE: The battery charger is 115v-220v/60Hz-50Hz compatible (but you'll need a $5 adapter for the plug to hook it up with European sockets.

For me, one big drawback was that there is no thread in the object lens in which to add filters, wide angle or telephoto lenses. Also, the computer linkages is only good for stills. When the miniDV is transferred to VHS (through a VCR with digital inputs -- most good ones have them) I managed to get excellent videos out of them, suitable for shipping to relatives.

You'll need to get a bigger battery than the standard one which can perhaps give you 30 minutes of shooting when fully charged. I picked up a 3 hour battery (by searching online -- I think it was sold NEW at eBay for about $50).

In my opinion, this is about the best, most versatile camera that you can get for the money.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great deal on a DV
I got this DV Camera to tape some old Super-8 movies for conversion to DVD. Thanks to the low light performance and image stabiliaztion it did a great job. Then I shot some footage on the Santa Monica Pier and it did great in daylight as well. So for a low cost video camera you can't beat it. It's not a digital camera though go buy one if you want that. Still no firewire cable was a let down but you can get them cheap look for a 4-6 pin cable and get it hooked up for computer fun!

4-0 out of 5 stars decent minidv camcorder for the money
This "southwestconsumer" (sdclark12) wrote over 100 piece of reviews with exactly the same contents and rating against various Panasonic products. This is a person full of hatred towards Panasonic. His reviews have nothing to do with a particular Panasonic product.

4-0 out of 5 stars A camera it's not!
We love this camcorder. It's got great picture quality, even in low light, and lots of featuers. Price is great, too.

However, it isn't a camera. We owned a VHS-C Panasonic camcorder that took picutres as files on an SD card. This one takes "pictures" by recording a seven second still image directly onto your tape. You then have to "play" your movie, uh, picture, into the computer, which can convert the video into a still picture. Of course, your pictures could be spread out all over a 90 minute tape.

The real kicker is, the crummy serial cable and software isn't even included.

I'd call it deceptive advertising, to say the least. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars SD Memory Card is a wonderful device!
The advancements in technology never cease to amaze me. They continue to get smaller and smaller even when you didn't think it was possible. Such is the case for the Panasonic SD Memory card as well. Not only is it small, but it has a large capacity for adapting to a variety of digital content types. This SD Memory Card can write data at a rate of 10 MB per second! I mainly use my SD Memory card to save music from my MP3 player. I normally get about 5 1/2 hours out of the card. I highly recommend this to anyone who uses audio, video, communications and information devices and appliances. It is the wave of the future! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Enjoying it so far
Enjoying the camcorder so far. Got a multi-card reader (to ease up on the battery usage on my digital, too) and getting the stills off the camera is a breeze. Computer recognized it right away as a removable drive. Had a Dazzle set up for the old analog camcorder and the Panasonic hooked right up to it, video on computer looks great. Lowlight is a touch grainy but still better than my old Sharp viewcam.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice Camera BUT... NO SOFTWARE INCLUDED
I would recommend the camera's video quality and nicely put operating controls, even thought there is an inconvenience with the camera's external light button that it would be better placed on the outside of the camera, not inside where the LCD panel closes and forcing you to open it each time you want to activate the light and some useful controls when trying to only use the ViewFinder to maximize battery use. THE very drawback on this model is the lack of any editing software and USB cables. And be advised that Panasonic doesn't offer any free software not even PC drivers for letting you use any other software to control the camera.... you must buy them and wait months to arrive because they are always "backorder"... if you don't intend to hook it up right away with a Computer, it's a nice camcorder with many included extras other cameras have as options but no software is just a pain in the butt....

4-0 out of 5 stars First Mini dv camcorder for me
I BOUGHT THIS CAMCORDER AT CIRCUIT CITY IT HAD GREAT FEATURES AND WHEN I OPENED THE BOX THERE WAS NO SOFTWARE(AND I CANT STILL FIND NONE) AND NO SB CABLE WHICH REALLY DISAPPOINTED ME I FOUND OUT THAT THE NEWER MODEL OF THE PV-GS SEREIS SUPPORTED THESE.ANYWAYZ ITS A GREAT CAMCORDER AND FOR CAPTURING STILL PHOTS U NEED TO BUY AND SD CARD(NOT INCLUDED IN THE BOX)

PANASONIC U HAVE FALIED ME

2-0 out of 5 stars First MiniDV and very unimpressed
Puchased this from Circut City at an open box buy of $330. Let me just say do your research on review sites and only pick the best rated ones. Video quality is very grainy. Indoors with the LED light is very choppy and takes forever to auto-focus in. The zoom is great for reaching out and touching someone. That's the only reason I gave it two stars. I wouldn't say I'd stay away from Panasonic's. But if I was to purchase one, it would probably be there 3 MegaPixel one.

1-0 out of 5 stars Will not buy Panasonic again!!!!!!
Come on Panasonic, you say in your advertisement that the DV Camera can be used as a Webcam and images can also be transferred through the USB port. OK, I realized that the USB cable was extra (not happy about that), but to not supply a software driver in the box or on your website. You got to be kidding!!!!!

I once considered Panasonic as a premier brand but will look elsewhere for future purchases. ... Read more

The SVAV30 features enhanced picture quality with an MPEG4 frame rate (15 frames per second) for video and 640 x 480 resolution for JPEG still images. A swiveling 2-inch LCD screen and two record buttons allow you to shoot comfortably with the unit in either the horizontal or vertical position. A new 2x digital zoom helps bring subjects into closer view.

The SVAV30 includes a built-in flash for taking digital still pictures in low-light situations.

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD
this is the coolest thing you get four great things in one, although i cant print out the pictures because my mom lost the product key

a retard could figure this out it's so easy,but if you are going to buy this buy an extra card for recording because they dont hold very much. well, you should still buy this because instead of buying those expensive video camera, or mp3 players, or digital cameras it's all in one and VERY COOL

5-0 out of 5 stars The Coolest Gadget of Summer 2003
If you don't have an MP3 player, digital camera, digital voice recorder or digital video camera, this one device will do it all. If you have all those separate components, this baby is still great to have. Sure, the still and video camera don't have the resolution of the larger and pricier cameras, but hey, it fits in the palm of your hand with room to spare and weighs just a tad over two ounces. And you can pop it into its cradle and record video from an external source. The frame rate is only 15fps but I was still able to enjoy an episode of Seinfeld while waiting for a flight. And everybody who saw it had to know what it was and what it did.

3-0 out of 5 stars A great gizmo, a substandard camera
I really wish I had read some of the reviews before buying this camera. It is small, has tons of features, and is really fast, not to mention makes everybody around you, strangers or not, stop to look at it and ask questions. But the pictures it takes are just not a high enough quality to make it worth it. You could buy a cell phone that can play mp3's and take pictures as good as this camera, and thats a phone too. The zoom was terrible and lost all focus when used, and the mp3 player would be cool if there weren't so many restrictions on how to get music on there. All in all, I was really excited to receive, and really disappointed as soon as I tried to print my pictures, so I returned the product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all! Recommended.
When reading these reviews prior to purchase, I got nervous that I would recieve a piece of garbage that didn't live up to the curiousity surrounding it.

I was wrong!

This is a great gadget for on the go, making home movies, anything. When taking a picture, if you are too close with the flash on, all you will see is a flash of white light. Just don't take it less than 1-2 feet away from the object.

I was very impressed with the video aspect. The sound was very impressive and I was able to watch the videos immediately after taking them, and the picture quality is impressive considering how small this is.

Overall, I'm really glad I bought this. The voice recorder is reliable, I haven't checked the Audio player, but I mostly bought it for three out of four purposes. It is absolutely worth it, especially to slip in your pocket and make videos/take pictures on the go.

TIP: The SV-AV30 comes with a 64MB Memory Card. If you are planning to use this full-time, or are taking this on a trip, buy an additional card. 64MB is really not a lot of room, especially if you will be using all of the options offered (Voice/Audio/Camera/Video). The memory cards are somewhat expensive, but if you invest in a high MB card, it will last you for a while.

1-0 out of 5 stars NOT Worth it
Sorry guys... I saw this gizmo and thought as many do.."wow.. a video camera and digital camera in one and in a small package" (I didn't really care about the mp3 player and voice recorder).

I was/am willing to sacrifice some quality because of the size but this thing is ridiculous. Unless you are in DIRECT sunlight taking a picture of something 2 feet in front of you then this thing is worse than anything I can imagine (and even then the pictures are terrible).

The video camera recording/reproduction is useless...I have never got a decent recording.

If you have to use the flash (which seems like all the time) then all you get is bright white pictures.

I can't express how disappointed I was with this product. A friend of mine just got a digital camera for 25% the price and the pictures are 10 times the quality and it is only slightly bigger than this.

The only positive things I could say is that it is a great conversation starter at bars..etc.. since it is a cool package and draws a lot of attention (but dont try actually show it off by using it because it is pathetic) and that the software isnt "terrible" (although has failed to work a couple of times on XP but pretty solid for the most part).

My opinion---a waste of money--novelty wears off after 24 hours and then you look at what you have which is picture quality 10 times worse than a picture booth and a video camera that you can't use. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The PTL500U from Panasonic is a high-quality LCD projector optimized for projecting widescreen movies. With its 16:9 aspect ratio and 10-bit digital processing and gamma correction, you can achieve stunning theater-like presentation at home. Three 1,280 x 720 LCD panels combine with a 1,300:1 contrast ratio and 850 ANSI lumens of brightness to deliver bright, easy-to-see images even in less-than-ideal lighting conditions. A projector "AI" automatically adjusts lamp brightness to your surroundings. The 130-watt lamp has an expected life of about 5,000 hours.

The PTL500U supports a wide variety of inputs, including DVI-D, PC, RGB, component video, and S-video, and can be mounted either on a desk or ceiling, in front of or behind the projection screen. The projector is also compatible with both PC and Mac operating platforms, as well as PAL, NTCS, and SECAM video formats. A progressive cinema scan reproduces natural, flicker-free video, while a dynamic sharpness control helps enhance image quality.

A wireless remote control allows you to operate the projector without having to leave the comfort of your seat. The 100 to 240 V AC, 50/60 Hz power supply consumes about 180 watts during normal operation and just 1 watt on standby. The PTL500U also comes backed by a one-year limited warranty.

Amazon.com Product Description

The 4-megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10 offers a host of professional features at an affordable price. It includes a 12x optical zoom with image stabilization, full manual controls (with a manual focus ring), a hot shoe accessory connector, and movie mode with audio. This Lumix model (the DMC-FZ10K) has a black body; the DMC-FZ10S has a silver body.

Optics and Resolution
With its 4-megapixel CCD sensor, you can capture up to a 2304 x 1728 pixel image for prints up to 11 x 17 inches. It also has 1600 x 1200, 1280 x 960, and 640 x 480 pixel resolution settings (and 1920 x 1080 for display on HDTV wide screen TVs with a 16:9 aspect ratio).

The extended zoom of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10 digital camera
No Zoom3x Zoom6x Zoom9x Zoom12x Zoom
The Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens features an F2.8 brightness throughout the entire 12x zoom range, which is equivalent to a 35-420mm zoom lens on a conventional 35mm film camera. (The DMC-FZ10 also has a 3x digital zoom.) Its precision lens, extraordinary telephoto features and no-lag processing speed enable this camera to capture every detail of distant or quick-moving subjects with superb brightness and clarity. The Lumix DMC-FZ10 image stabilization system uses gyroscopes within the camera to sense camera shake and shift the lens elements to compensate for the movement--thus enabling you to shoot at a slower shutter speed.

About Panasonic's MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer
The same image with IS off and with IS on
Handheld telephoto shots, or shoot-
ing in low-light conditions, often magnifies unintentional hand move-
ments into blurry images (above, top). This optical technology (bottom) provides precise compen-
sation for these movements without any degradation of image quality.
Movie Mode
In addition to taking still photos, the DMC-FZ10 can also record 320 x 240 movie clips at either 30 or 10 frames per second (fps) with audio. Your video length is limited only by the size of your memory card. The included 16 MB card can hold 25 seconds of 30 fps video.

More Features
In addition to the variety of convenient automatic controls, the DMC-FZ10 has full manual controls for exposure, focusing, and white balance. Manual exposure capability gives you complete freedom for capturing images according to your preferences, including intentional overexposure or underexposure. The manual focus ring provided on the lens barrel, like traditional camera lenses, allows you to focus on the particular part of your subject according to your preference. Advanced histogram functions on the DMC-FZ10, like a digital light meter, provide a graphic representation of the luminance level of the pixels composing an image for more precise exposure control for quality photos.

Incredibly responsive, the DMC-FZ10 captures consecutive shots nearly as quickly as a motor-driven film camera. As soon as the camera's CCD captures the image signal, Panasonic's multi-tasking Venus Engine LSI simultaneously displays images on the LCD while writing data to the memory card, significantly reducing lag time between shots. To capture sudden events as they unfold, Panasonic's exclusive Mega Burst recording feature enables consecutive rapid-fire shooting, capturing 4 frames per second with undiminished quality from frame to frame.

Other features include:

  • 2-inch LCD display with 130,000-pixel resolution
  • Flash modes: Auto, Red-Eye Auto, On, Red-Eye On, Red-Eye Slow Sync
  • Focus modes: Auto Focus System, Manual Focus, Normal/Macro (Dial), Spot AF On/Off (Spot Mode), Continuous AF On/Off
  • Audio recording with images up to 5 seconds
As an added bonus, Panasonic includes a lens hood, which comes in handy when you're shooting outdoors. The lens hood is threaded for 72 mm filters, as well.

Panasonic's MegaBurst Mode
Designed for action shots, Panasonic's Mega Burst imaging captures up to eight full-resolution shots in two seconds.
Storage and Transfer
Images are stored on either Secure Digital (SD) or MultiMediaCard (MMC) memory cards. A 16 MB SD card is included with the DMC-FZ10. At the 2304 x 1728 pixel setting, the 16 MB card can hold 8 images at Fine Quality mode or 16 at Standard Quality mode.

Images can be downloaded to either a Mac or PC via USB 1.1 connectivity, which means the camera can be connected to any USB-based Windows Me/2000/XP and Mac OS 8.6 or later computer without installing any software.

Power and Size
The camera is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery (included). It measures 3.4 x 5.5 x 4.2 inches and weighs 19.4 ounces (550 grams).

What's In The Box
This package includes the Lumix DMC-FZ10K (black) digital camera, 16 MB Secure Digital memory card, rechargeable lithium-ion battery (CGA-S002A), AC adapter/battery charger, lens hood, lens cap, neck strap, USB and A/V cables, and 139-page printed manual. It also includes the following software:

  • ArcSoft PhotoBase--Transfer images from an SD Memory Card to a PC that "footnotes" and display them in a list
  • ArcSoft PhotoImpression--Adjust colors and process images to create calendars, cards, etc.
  • ArcSoft Panorama Maker--Merge separate photos to create a single image
  • ArcSoft PhotoPrinter Pro--Select numerous photos to print together as one group

5-0 out of 5 stars Great in-betweener camera, very minor drawbacks
I've never owned a digital camera, but I've had a Canon AE-1 for about 20 years. My wife and I wanted to get a digital camera that we could share (manual for me, point and shoot for her) and the Panasonic DMC-FZ10 seems to be the perfect compromise. The picture quality and color fidelity are truly amazing. I'm happy with the ability to adjust almost all of the settings, and the gun-and-run style pictures are great too! Two minor annoyances with this camera:

- The lens cap isn't attached. We're going to lose it sooner rather than later;
- Low light settings: The camera sometimes struggles to autofocus in low-light conditions sans flash. This won't affect you if you're using your own settings, but be aware that low light point-and-click isn't perfect; also in auto mode, the LCD is almost impossible to read in the dark.

Other than that, we're thrilled with the camera. If you truly need an SLR with swappable lenses and full control, spend more for the Canon Digital Rebel. If you just want point and click, spend less and get an A70. But for the in-betweener, this camera really hits the sweet spot.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best digicam for the money right now!
The best cam for the money and has every potential to become the next 2100UZ as far as legacy is concerned. The lens and IS are 1st rate and you can get beautiful crisp photos in almost no light although focus lock in those conditions can be tricky. The zoom and the digital zoom are all very usable and I have gotten nice photos at full digital zoom. Overall Panasonic did their homework for the most part albeit some minor annoyances I listed below. But there are no perfect digital cameras out there. But couple this cam with the 12x Leica/IS combo and beautiful 4MP picture quality, many user available settings and you have a photographer's dream here.

Minor gripes I have-
Handgrip needs to be bigger.
No eyecup, although a workaround is available as the Nikon 2939 cup.
Proprietary battery. Wish this could have taken AA NIMH's.
Lowlight focus can be tricky at times. Other than that once you get used to the possibilities of this cam you won't regret getting it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wooow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've bought this awesome digital camera at amazon.com one month ago, and I've taken hundred of pictures with excellent results, the imaging quality is superb, great sharpness and very low noise levels in night shots. Leica lenses do a very good job as always and give to this camera a professional level. The 12x optical zoom works very well, you have to get used to keep your hands fixed when using the maximum zoom, but with some days of practice, you are gonna get unshake and sharp shots. Its incredible that you can get a 420mm lens with an aperture = 2.8 in the whole range, for less than a one thousand dollar and even the renowned LEICA lenses. What a BARGAIN!!!!
Optical image stabilizer (OIS)is needful with large zoom lenses and Panasonic included it, but in spite of this - you need to have firm hands like I wrote down in the paragraph above.
Panning mode works fine and I enjoy taking pictures with this mode, its quite useful since the only way that you could get this effect was by using a photo editor (not anymore)
Only one drawback, its flash is very weak, so how this camera has a hot shoe, you are gonna be forced to buy an external flash.
I hope Panasonic releases an 8MP digital camera with 12x optical zoom soon... using LEICA LENSES. Im gonna wait fot it eagerly.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love at first sight
I wanted to go digital, but looked and looked for the perfect first digital camera. My sister put the Panasonic Lumix in my hands, and it was love at first sight. First, the camera is amazingly light for a camera with a zoom equivalent of 400+. Second, the camera never misses a shot, no matter what the light conditions. Yes, I read the manual thoroughly, and yes, the camera can be confused a little when the conditions are dark and there are lights in back of the subject, but not a huge problem, and even most of those shots turned out great. I am in love with this camera, so in love that making the switch to digital was easy and delightful.

4-0 out of 5 stars Buy it for the lens
This was my first post-film camera, and it turned out to be a relatively easy transition. It's about the same size as the SLR film cameras I was accustomed to, albeit half the weight. It provides full manual controls once you decypher the menu protocol.
If you're into nature photography, as I am, the FZ10 is just about unbeatable. You can reach out with a 420mm equivalent for shots of birds or other wildlife and in macro you can take a portrait of a bug on a flower. Unbelievable!
The image-stabilization gyroscope combined with the Leica optics means you can take hand-held shots in daylight at full zoom that are super-sharp -- if you know how to squeeze a trigger.
Shutter lag is not a problem -- about 1 second betwen shots and the burst mode gives you 4 frames a second.
Downsides:
1. Poor low-light performance, common with digitals, is perhaps even more problematical with the FZ10, since it has no focus-assist light. (The internal flash is fairly good, and there's a hot shoe for something with more punch.)
2. It's not an SLR, so no interchangable lenses. (But if you need more than 420mm, use your feet!)
3. The proprietary battery is expensive, about $50, but they can last for a whole day of fairly heavy shooting.
4. Forget the lens cap (it's unattached so you're gonna lose it anyway) and get a 72mm skylight filter to protect that great Leica glass. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The stylishly small Panasonic VDR-M70 marks the next step in DVD video camcorders. As full-featured as it is easy to use, this compact camcorder records high-quality digital video and still images onto removable 3-inch (8cm) DVD-RAM and DVD-R discs, allowing for non-linear editing and within the camcorder. The VDR-M70 features a 18x optical zoom, 240x digital zoom, a 2.5-inch LCD, 1-megapixel resolution, and SD memory card compatibility.

Optics and Resolution
The VDR-M50 DVD camcorder has a 1/4" 1-megapixel CCD, providing sharp and vibrant video. In addition to the 18x optical zoom, the 240x digital zoom allows you to capture that perfect moment, no matter how far away you are.

DVD Format
The VDR-M70 combines all the technological benefits of the rewritable DVD-RAM format with the compatibility of write-once DVD-R media. DVD-RAM offers the highest quality in digital imaging, huge storage capability--capturing up to 120 minutes of digital video and 1,998 still images to DVD media--and rewritability up to 100,000 times, with virtually no degradation of picture quality no matter how many times the disc is played back. The DVD-R format offers the ability to record onto affordable DVD-R discs for sharing with friends and family, and archiving memories for everyone to enjoy.

With the DVD-RAM format, you can access recorded scenes quickly and easily. Indexed thumbnails are displayed on the 2.5-inch color LCD. In addition, the camcorder will automatically find blank space on the DVD-RAM disc whenever a recording begins, eliminating the possibility of recording over what you've already shot. Camcorder editing features include delete, rearrange, fade in/out, wipe, divide, and splice.

Recorded video and still images captured by the VDR-M70 can be played back on DVD-RAM and the majority of DVD-R compatible MPEG2-conforming devices. Just slide the disc out of the new disc cartridge and place it into the DVD recorder or player, or into a PC or laptop computer equipped with DVD playback.

More Features
In addition to video, the VDR-M70 can capture still images up to 1280 x 960 pixel resolution, good enough resolution for 4 x 6-inch prints. (A DVD-RAM disc can store JPEG photo data and video together on the same disc.) You can save images either to the DVD or to Secure Digital (SD) or MultiMedia (MMC) memory cards.

The VDR-M70M70 uses a USB 2.0 connection for high-speed transfer of content to a PC--a step forward from the slower USB 1.1.

Other features include:

  • Digital Electronic Image Stabilization helps compensate for unintended hand and/or camcorder movement
  • Thumbnail scenes display lets you select scenes recorded on a disc and arrange them to play back in any order the users want
  • LUX rating of 12 LUX
  • Low-light mode available for shooting in near-dark situations
  • Hot shoe connector for accessories

5-0 out of 5 stars out-of-site camera
The Panasonic Digat Palmcorder DVD Camcorder is one of the easiest and most advanced dvd cameras I have used to make movies and stills. The instruction book is very easy to use and all the pictures in the instruction book are very clear and look like the camera itself. After I got the camera it was not long before I was taking videos, stills and learning about all the extras in the menu line up. Also putting the dvds in and out of the camera was a breeze. What really impressed me was the joy stick. By just moving it right, left, down, or up you could access any of the thumbnails or start the dvd anywhere you wanted. If you are looking for a good dvd camera that takes exceptional movies and stills and makes it easy, the vdr70 is the camera for you!

Amazon.com Review

Panasonic's low-end MiniDV camcorder, the PV-DV52, doesn't have all of the features of its pricier siblings--like a zoom mic or a larger LCD--but it does capture high-quality video in a light, tight package.

Although its 10x optical zoom is lower than other camcorders, it still provides a close-up image for average recording, and a hefty 700x digital zoom capability as well. The image stabilization feature of the PV-DV52 worked well, keeping our frame steady even during one-handed filming.

The PV-DV52 will capture still images as well, but only at 640 x 480 resolution. It also stores images to tape, which sometimes makes them difficult to locate in order to transfer them to PC.

Speaking of transferring, you'll need a FireWire port to move video and stills over at high speed, as the camera doesn't include USB connectivity. It does offer a serial connection, but that is only for transferring still images, as moving video via a serial connection would be akin to draining a lake with a stirring straw.

Some of Panasonic's more expensive MiniDV camcorders offer a 3.5-inch LCD, but the 2.5-inch color LCD of the PV-DV52 proved large enough for average use. The PV-DV52 also offers some nice features for low-light recording (although not for no-light recording), including the MagicPix digital enhancement mode and a built-in light with a 10-foot range.

Tapes eject from the top of the PV-DV52, allowing you to keep the camera on an optional tripod when popping in a new tape. And the battery--which lasted a little over an hour--charges separately from the camera, which makes it easier to have a backup fully charged.

For the price, the Panasonic PV-DV52 allows for high-quality video recording without requiring a big investment. It's a great starter camcorder for a family on a budget. --J. Curtis

4-0 out of 5 stars Very nice camera
This is my first video camera, and I'm very pleased with it. The detail and the sound are great. I can hear my kitten jumping on leaves, and the detail is great due to the high pixelation. (680K) It picks up colors very well. I had no disappointments with the zoom, though the optical zoom is reputedly low end, it seemed fine to me. And there is also a phenomenal digital zoom which should make up to some extent for anyone who has high zoom needs. It worked right out of the box with a very intuitive interface that required practically no reading of directions, except for the image stabilizer function which I haven't wanted to use yet because camera shake hasn't really been that bad. The low light compensator is basically just a continuous flash, and that does eat up battery time. The worse thing about this camera is that there isn't a lot of battery time. That's fine if you're doing domestic projects like filming your pets, kids or backyard barbecues. It might be more of a pain if you took the camera abroad and were not exceedingly organized about your time and keeping the battery charged.

Also the camera worked great with my Mac Ibook. All I had to do was plug into the Firewire slot, get the Firewire driver for Quicktime, and I could record clips into my computer and make a wonderful little web movie. It's a great basic video camera for someone like me who's never had a movie camera of any kind and wants to edit on computer. And the price is also right.

4-0 out of 5 stars very pleased
I am very happy with this purchase. I owned an analog Sharp and it needed to be repaired, so I looked into a new camcorder. The quality of the picture is what mattered most to me, within economic reason. The picture is great, much much better than analog. In low light conditions I do lose some of the colors (they wash out a bit) but the quality is still good. The range of features is nice, but I was surprised to find that I can't use the EIS (it holds the image steady) with the other features like the low light ones. You have to turn off the other features when using EIS. I am not into editing on my computer, which is good because this camera doesn't seem to have the bells and whistles necessary to do so, although they are available for purchase (and are compatible with the camera). The camera is light, it has a built in light, and the sound is great.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great value - shame about the mic quality
I have had this camcorder (my first and only) for nearly a year. It was a great entry to home video.

I was very pleased with the picture quality and it is easy to use. I have tried the EIS feature(electronic image stabilization) and it really works and the effect on picture quality is barely noticeable.

Editing on a computer with the IEEE1394 interface is fun (and IEEE1394 interface cards for desktop and laptop PCs can be had very cheaply - I bought one for each.) The camcorder can even print the finished movies back to a blank MiniDV tape for archiving and for displaying on NTSC TVs.

The built-in microphone has very poor sound quality - voices sound very tinny. I wish it had a way of connecting an external microphone. And I wish a second, larger battery wasn't so expensive - it is hard to shop around for a third-party battery as the online catalogs rarely mention this model of camcorder.

Shop around for MiniDV tapes - good brands can be found for around $5 but I see them many places over $8.

The battery charger included with mine doubles as an AC adapter and works on many electrical systems round the world (just get a travel plug from your local hardware store.)

5-0 out of 5 stars Simplicity is key.
This digital camera has everything you need. Don't waste your money on those overpriced gadgety cameras, when all you need is something to capture good quality digital video.

I've played around with quite a few DV cameras, and almost all of them were impossible to figure out. Too many buttons. This camera only has the necessities. My only complaint about the ergonomics is that the record button could be placed better. I usually take my thumb off of it after I hit record, so I have to go searching for it when I want to pause or stop recording, so a lot of my video has a visible jiggle at the end where I was fumbling for the record toggle.

The quality of the video is superb. It gets a little grainy in low light, but no worse than any DV camera I've seen below $900.

Oh, one thing to note. This camera doesn't come with a DV tape to get you started. So, you better put a 3-pack in your shpping cart before you check out. I'd recommend a second battery, too.

This camera doesn't have an analog pass-thru, so you can't use it to transfer your old 8mm videos to DV.... but that's something you'd do only once anyway, right? Why spend the extra bucks on a camera that can do it then?

This is a great deal. If you are the bare-bones type, get this. You'll be pleased.

For an entry level miniDV camcorder, this one Rocks.
Easy to use & extremely light.
Buy the Pyro firewire card, and you can get great video to your pc.
For the price you pay, it doesn't get much better. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good value and YES it works
Took me a while to assign the right port that made my home and office networks happy, but that's not a Panasonic issue. Overall, the entire process is very smooth and easy.

Works reliably and the interface is easy. Tilts and pans enough if you place it in a corner. High is better as it tilts down much more than up.

I wish it had better color and a zoom but for the price this is a bargain. Panasonic even provides FREE dynamic IP tracking so you can always find your camera.

2-0 out of 5 stars Very cool idea, implementation needs work & documentation
I got my netcam a few days ago.
Good packaging, easy to set up, nice idea.
First, the picture is not very good, and the color is off.
I did not get any documentation, specifically, I would
like to know how to interface to this camera ... what are
the switches that can be used on the URL to manipulate the
camera?
When you view the camera there is a top page for selecting
which type of interface you want, an updating picture, or
streaming type format.This is cool, and being able to

move the "eyeball" so to speak, is way cool, and in fact
the reason I got it.
The mounting is rather limited, and I would have liked
some mount that can be secured.With the existing mount
someone coming by could just steal the camera.
The important thing for me is to be able to store the
images, otherwise you do not know what happened during the
day.There is an archive mode, but it is very small, so
some interfacing to another "server" is needed, and the
documentations is not there.
It would be nice to be able to program the "eyeball" to scan
the view, and record it automatically, or to follow motion.
All in all, what does one expect for $250.00.
I would want to be able to just link to the camera URL
and put the image in a web page, but I cannot figure out
how to do that except for uploading the page somewhere ...
it would be better, easier and faster to link to the image
and have the server change it, or update it for you.
Panasonic gets credit here for a really nice product out
there first.Their other network cameras are even nicer,
but the universal swiveling, and zooming camera is still
over $1000.00 at this point.I am waiting for the price
to come down on that one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Network Camera
The Panasonic Network camera can be used with a DSL or cable internet connection.Subscription to Panasonic's viewnetcam service is now free so it is even a better value. ... Read more
