The camera has more than met my expectations. I'm back doing what I did fifty years ago with a pro film camera - a TV travel series of Michigan's upper Peninsula, Will be taking old footage on film, converting them to HD digital and morphing it with current recordings of the same locations to the...

Great form factor. But out of the box settings result in a background grain in less than ideal light. Switching to manual and turning down the iris to about 20db fixes the problem. A bit disappointing.

IQ is very good for what it is, an inexpensive low-end pro level ENG form factor camcorder. Very light for the size. Good when you are on a tight budget.

This camera was bought for a media and broadcasting class at my high school. Not worth it. The quality is actually worse than on most cellphones. There is no detail in hair or anything like that, the thing is a monster to carry on your shoulder for any longer than 15 minutes and on top of that it...

For the money spent on the camera it is well worth it. This is my second purchase of this camera it looks and feels great on the shoulder. I shoot motorsports and it is perfect for run and shoot type of video. You are the tripod and that makes for fast movement for getting the shot.

The best camcorder ever. The zoom is out of this world. Light weight but very durable.

Definitely value for money with the two I got as b cams. In manual mode they're super and do the job of units 3 times the price. No complaints at all, easy to use and end results are great. Top job Panasonic again.

We run two of these in a well lit tv studio, and we're replacing them with GH4s. HDMI output is 8bit 4:2:0, but even when saved to ProRes HQ 422, you can see how limited the sensor is -- hair and foliage details turn to mush. Gritty gritty gritty midtones and shadows...
