This is my first move into digital video cameras. It is light, easy to use and creates wonderful images.

I’m going to review this camcorder having owned it for several months now, but will add more as time progresses. For the money this camcorder is fantastic and very easy to use. The picture, sound and features are great,giving great results. I managed to take indoor and outdoor video clips and play them back on a 42’lg smart tv. They were stunning and very detailed. Don’t judge this camcorder like some sort of professional model. But you won’t get cheap results in picture nor sound. I pushed this camcorder to the limits, and all conditions, and although not perfect.

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Extra-Wide 32.4mm Lens (F1.8)
  • 50x i.Zoom (38x Optical)
  • Hybrid OIS+ (5-axis)
  • 3.0 inch LCD (230k resolution)
  • 2 Channel Zoom MIC with Wind Noise Cancelling

Good level of features against price. We bought this for people to use at our wedding to snap some moments. It produces great footage and the image stabilisation really helps for amatures.

Great entry level easy-to-use hd camcorder. I was looking for a camcorder for 2 reasons – to take videos while on holiday and to record videos to explain my services and upload these to youtube. Amazon is not really very well geared up to purchase such items as you cannot select features you are looking for and then, get a filtered list. Anyway, what i was looking for was a hd camcorder where i could use an external microphone. And unfortunately panasonic v500m does not have an external microphone socket. The next model up – panasonic v700m – http://www. Uk/panasonic-v700-1080p-ready-camcorder/dp/b006t9jhzk/ – has an external microphone socket and apparently, better video although, i have not seen the quality of v700m’s output. V500m is built well and handles well.

This camcorder cost me £200 with the £50 cashback . That is outstanding value for a top brand. It is so easy to use, so light and effortless. The image stabilizing is awesome, keeping steadycaptures through out. The battery last a good amount of time, but well worth buying a spare. I shot in full hd, and was amazed are sharp it is on my 46 led samsung screen. I also bought a sandisk extreme 32mb hd video card, which may be helping on such good image quality. Unless your a dedicated filmer, this camera is perfect for everyday use, especially the family man .

I recently purchased a panasonic v500 full hd camcorder from amazon, having researched the various models on line, both from panasonic’s website and amazon’s. The v500 model came up as the model that offered the most features i required, as a long standing amateur photographer this is the first model in the panasonic range of camcorders that offers full hd video recording, called avchd progressive, which is true 1920 x 1080p (50p) recording. It also records in 1080/50i, which is the format that the bbc use for their hd programmes. As someone, who uses apple mac computers, i was pleased to be able to record video and photosin iframe format, and transfer these to my mac computers. Microsoft computers can transfer their video and photos using the supplied software, included in the camera box. The other great feature of the camcorder, is the 50 x intelligent zoom, which is optically stabilized, and really does work well up to 50x for a full description of all the camera’s features, i suggest buyers check out the technical specification on amazon’s website, which i found very helpful in making a decision on the model to purchase. Last but not least, is the excellent value for money offered by amazon on the majority of their products line up panasonic v500 full hd 1920 x 1080p (50p) 3d ready camcorder – black (1mos sensor, 50x intelligent zoom, sd card recording, 2d/3d conversion with face recognition) 3. 0 inch lcdpanasonic v500 full hd 1920 x 1080p (50p) 3d ready camcorder – black (1mos sensor, 50x intelligent zoom, sd card recording, 2d/3d conversion with face recognition) 3.

Proving to be very successful especially when used in conjunction with my monopod as long zoomed shots show up all the shakiness. Photo’s are absolutely crap don’t bother if you want photos from it.

So far, over the last 12 years, i’ve owned 3 camcorders including this one. Had a canon hi8, then the panasonic nvgs180 with 3ccd technology, finally moved with the times and bought the panasonic v500m full hd. Omg, i have to say that the picture quality is absolutely amazing.So easy to use and the software provided (hd writer 4) which allows you to edit your movies, add titles, music and burn onto blu ray/dvd, is brilliant. You cannot go wrong with a panasonic. Its worth paying the extra compared to other makes, especially if you’re like me and love burning your family movies onto dvd.

We use this to record high speed athletics events. . Easy to use with high end results. It will be the first time in four years that we don’t feel we need to upgrade this year.

Great videos but how to store them?. This little camcorder produces stunning hd images which look fantastic on my hd tv (as might be expected, far better than the old sony analogue one it has now replaced). The wideangle perspective is ideal for shooting buildings and interiors when you can’t otherwise get far enough away, and the zoom function is amazing. Indeed, such is the hd picture quality that it is possible to use the digital zoom to magnify much more than the generous 50 x optical zoom without the picture becoming over-pixelated. For those who prefer close-up, there is also a macro function but this is hard to access, requiring lots of button-pressing to find, and then easily cancelled if you inadvertently use the zoom function. However, i have found that for close-ups of insects and flowers, the easiest option is to move the zoom up to a max of about 7 x magnification and then move the camera in close – this gives incredible detail. The ability to take a still photo at the same time is also very useful – although not high resolution, such images are very sharp and probably fine for 6 x 4 prints. The only snag i have found concerns the storage of the resulting footage. I bought a 32gb sd card naively thinking it would last me for ages, but hd files are so huge that i have quickly filled it up. With my old sony recorder, i would play the pics through my tv and record them onto vhs cassettes, with 2-3 hours of recording on each vhs cassette.

This was bought as a replacement for a samsung video camera which developed faults after being transported in my luggage on an aircraft. The definition is spectacular, the ability to ‘extract’ hd stills from the video is outstanding and the 50 x zoom is a real boon.
