Panasonic hc-v700 – perfect camcorder. After a lot of looking about and reading reviews i ended up buying the panasonic hc-v700 and have had it for many months now and it is fantastic – just perfect – i fully recommend it. I also bought a large non-panasonic battery for it (to use as the main battery) off of ebay – perfect.

I bought this at christmas in the amazon daily deals sale. I have to say it’s been brilliant ever since – the battery life with the supplied battery is about 90 minutes and the use of sd cards for me is great because they slot straight into my mac/macbook where i can quickly produce edited vids using imovie. The zoom is powerful and picture quality is excellent. For the price, there are also a stack of useful features. I enjoy using this regularly.

Hi,have recently upgraded to this from a 10 year old minidv tape camcorder. The image quality that this produces is quite simply outstanding. Initially, i had bought the sony cx250 camcorder but the image quality on that was very bad, with very grainy video and certainly no where near what you would find acceptable in an hd camcorder. We then took it back to currys and got a refund (after a lot of fighting as their customer service is rubbish compared to amazon. Uk and it was tedius getting them to admit there was an issue with the camera). Anyway back to the v700, we recently used it on my son’s first birthday and handheld the image stabilization is brilliant to the point that you would think we were using pro equipment. Also the image quality is razor sharp especially in good light, in low light, the camera does bump the sensor sensitivity up and you see some grain which is to be expected but still nowhere near as bad as we were seeing with the sony cx250. One other thing is note is that this has a sensor with enough megapixels to support native full hd resolution and then some which come into play when using its intelligent zoom feature.

Good quality picture and packed with useful features. The sound quality isn’t so good but this was rectified with the purchase of an external microphone. I was going to buy another v700 as a present but the price has gone up from £339 (december 2012) to £479 (now). Come on panasonic, what’s going on?.

Panasonic V700 Full HD 1920 x 1080p (50p) 3D Ready Camcorder – Black (1MOS Sensor, 46x Intelligent Zoom, SD Card Recording, 28mm Wide Angle with Face Recognition) 3.0 inch LCD : Easy to use with a thumb record button, index finger zooming in and out. I found this function of zooming in and out hardwork due to have large hands. This was a replacement for a mini dv camcorder having this nice and small is easier to carry around as well as being so much lighter, yet to edit on the pc and burn to disc will ad to this comment once done. Forget to say the front light work’s great when trying to record in poorly lit areas.

I went slightly up the tree of cameras in order to get an external mic jack (i’m of the bewildered opinion that doesn’t understand why such a jack isn’t a standard feature of all video cameras). Setting the camera up to use that to take audio feed from my zoom h1 stereo recorder (which has proven itself time and again as a fantastic device) was something i was a little nervous about, but it turned out to be easy and produced great results.

Great all round camera with mic input/level controls. Great camera, all though older in panasonic terms, the lower end “new” cameras still do not have mic inputs. Very versitile for concert/music recording as you can add a mic on a hotshoe and control levels. If you want all in and outs pay a lot more for new 900 models.

Great in good light, mediocre in low light. . Very good picture in decent light. Becomes grainy with loss of colour fidelity indoors under dim light. My rx100 performed better in low light. In the end sold this and bought canon g10 camcorder which is much better in low light as you can adjust so many settings.

When i got this camera for a cheap price i was surprised how small it was buying first on line. Its so small it could fit in your jacket pocket. Though video is really clear and sharp and has really good zoom to play with. The cam is good in low light to. Also has a video lamp or light. Not only is it small but very light. It captures lots in frame due to having wide angel. Its great for using for my youtube channel. If having this camera i defo recommend getting a higher capacitive battery as the one which it comes with only last just over an hour.

Simple to use, excellent image quality. The v700 was a bit more expensive than i had intended to spend, but very glad i did – great picture quality and very easy to use. Best bit is the quick start functionality – just pick it up and it starts recording. None of the waiting i have had with other devices or my iphone 4 which drives me mad. Excellent zoom and stabilization. Don’t use the still photos functionality – not great but this is video camera first and foremost so i am reviewing it based on that use.

A really good camcorder for the price. . A truly excellent product with many features giving fine quality hd recordings. You will be hard pressed to distinguish between this and top quality professional gear results under most conditions. It is easy to handle and, for me, gives perfectly acceptable results in fully automatic mode for 80% of my use. At other times i need manual focus and a degree of depth of field, both easily controllable. I tend to use a tripod where possible, but the image stabilisation is very effective. My only criticism, and it is a serious one, the viewfinder is almost impossible to use in very bright sunlight without shading the screen and, even then, the screen is not ideally suited. I am sure this criticism could be leveled at most camcorders and a camera fitted with an eyepiece viewer is probably the only solution to this problem.

Picture lacking, stability is amazing. I use this to make promotional videos. In good lighting it is great. I record audio with a different device. The picture is not bad, just not exceptional. However for the price you should buy this unless you want to pay twice for the cash for any better. The mechanical stabilisation is great, hand held shots are a dream.

As i have arthritic hands, i can’t operate the camera with the normal controls so use the touch screen. However, it seems that i need quite a lot of pressure on the screen. For example when i want to stop recording it requires sometimes a couple or more very firm “pushes” before it stops.
