For a non-hd camcorder this is fantastic. The zoom is unbelievably good and the sound quality is next to perfect. Recorded gigs with this and there was no distortion at all.

I was very pleased with this cheap and simple model. Nothing fancy to it, but it does the job all i want it for is to record simple memories with the family, it’s so easy to use my 8 year old uses it.

Lovely little camera, very light and easy to carry around, great picture quality too. I’m no expert but if you need a vid cam to capture holidays and special occasions i don’t think you could go wrong with this one.

Estimated delivery 18 nov 2010. The price paid £139 cannot be even matched anywhere at this time (i gave a local panasonic dealer the opportunity but he did not even bother coming back to me)dealt with amazon customer services on this order and the lady i spoke to was brilliant. I haven’t used the camera much yet, but am impressed with the size, weight and size of screen. It is tiny in comparison to the 5 year old sony we have, which is a good thing. I haven’t even opened the instructions yet, but if you’ve used a video camera before you’ll get the hang of this in less than 5 minutes. I’m sure there are some adavnced options i need to read up on when i have time but for now i just want a point & shoot with the simplicity of an sd card to transfer footage to the pc. The camera tells me that the 4gb sd card i bought separately hold 1hr 49 mins of footage which,to me, is ample. The video quality is fine for home movies and it is very quick and easy to upload footage via an sd card slot on the pc.

Good quality and features for the price. Although i have a few cameras, this is the first camcorder i have bought. So i did quite a bit of research before buying, and i have not been disappointed. This is a very reasonable camcorder for the price. Being a novice camcorder user, i love the intelligent auto setting which automatically switches between the different shooting modes to make sure you capture the best image possible i. Switching to portrait mode when it senses faces, or scenery mode when it detects large open or sunny spaces. It means you can just turn on the camcorder and start shooting automatically without thinking and still get good results. But it does also have reasonable manual abilities. I don’t use them that much as the automatic setting is good enough for me, but i do particularly like the intelligent contrast system which makes sure that reasonable detail is maintained when shooting with darker or lighter areas in shot so the main image is not overexposed.

Panasonic SDR-S50 Camcorder SD Card, X78 Enhanced Optical Zoom, Wide Angle Lens, iA + Af Tracking and Optical Image Stabilisation – Black : This is an excellent camera for quick use & ease of carrying. Very light and easily fits into pocket or handbag. Picture quality is excellent except for low light scenes (to be fair this is hilighted by other reviews). Zoom quality is again excellent. A good all round camera for anyone not wishing to go to hd which is a big user of both battery and memory. Ordering response-excellent i received this item within 2 days of order.

Very useful for capturing amateur productions. The quality of video playback is superb – i use it for recording student opera practice sessions so they can watch it back on the computer and receive accurate playback on their performance. Very useful for capturing amateur productions, even from the back of the audience using the excellent zoom function. For the price this little camcorder produces a professional result for the amateur user and i would recommend it to anyone. The battery lasts many hours and is easy to recharge using the mains charger.

Item arived late according to arival date but item arived in good condition and as describe. Quality wise, overall is a good camera. Picture quality not really as perfect as in the description. I try using a class 10 sd-card it does little improvement on the video quality but still performs poorly in low light condition. I would reccoment this camera to starter but would not do so for professionals.

Found it easy to use and fitted to my needs(family recordings). Software a bit faffy, magix software proved easier for me.

Unlike some people, i am not using this camera for family videos and the like, i am using mine for making proper scripted films, and for the hobbyist like me this camera is seriously good. The quality on my (normal sized; not hd) tv is simply excellent, and perfect for my needs. I also find the manual settings easy to use and to manipulate (very important if you’re doing miniature and model visual effects work) most importantly, the file format it records in is compatible with adobe premiere elements (i use version 2; i’m so way behind) the camera does come with editing software of it’s own, but this is so basic i haven’t used it. However, it’s good enough for some and as long as the more demanding film hobbyists like me can use it in more advanced programs like premiere etc then that’s all that matters. Note: i have no idea as to whether this camera works with final cut pro, as i have never used it with it. All in all, this camera will not give you hd footage, (it’s not supposed to is it?) but for sd users it is ideal.

Takes good sd videowhen used both handheld and with tripod. Still shot less detailed but this itemwould not normally be used for thatpurpose. Battery life a little short but no problemunless shooting a lot of longer videos onthe same day.

Good wee close up camera for general use but it cant cope with scenery at all. It performs poorly in low light conditions. Having said that it has an amazing zoom and is pin sharp when it is at close range.

EE UK’s First 4G Action Camera, but if you use your mobile or tablet it is great quality.

Purchaced one from ebay and i love it, comes with adapter to fit any go pro accessory and has a larger battery life than its cousin. Watch is really handy as it can be quickly checked to observe the cameras position. Watch display isnt very good quality but helps see …
