Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Value for money Bought quickly after my camcorder failed before a holiday. Consequently I needed to rely on the automatic features which work well. Very good wide angle - improvement on my previous camcorder. Disappointingly, although I have pointed out that the product comes with the smallest available battery, not the one in the pictures on the John Lewis website nothing has been done to correct this misleading information, probably because it is supplied by the manufacturer. A bigger battery is very expensive. 21 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great video camera for the price Being someone who entered the video film making market from the start and has owned a number of cameras over the years I found this new Panasonic to be a great little number. The quality of the video is great and the lightness of the camera means you can carry it around in your hand without feeling any weight even after some time. Using an sd card for memory means it is easy to transfer films to the pc or laptop for editing. The quality of the video even in MP4 small file format is very good. The price and quality makes this a great camera to own 09 September 2014
