Panasonic AG-DVC7 Mini DV Camcorder Review

 

In times where most everything is getting smaller, Panasonic has recycled the idea that bigger is better. The design of the new AG-DVC7 is a blast from the past, sporting a large rear-end that allows for easy and stable shoulder shooting. There is...

Fantastic camcorder!

 

Neither this camera nor the DVC20 supports XLR input, but I really wish that people would stop complaining about that! The Beachtek XLR-to-1/8" converter attaches to one of the DVC7's cold shoes and plugs right into the external micropone input. That's...

I bought this camcorder in Feb 2006 after renting it out a year before. This camcorder is fantastic! Colors are not as good as a 3 CCD unit, obviously, but in low-light conditions this camera completely whipped a Canon XL-1 (3 CCD) that I rented...

The 2.5" LCD is rather small, especially when the flip-out panel could easily accomodate a 3.5" LCD. Widescreen is 16:9 "soft matte", not anamorphic. 750x digital zoom is a totally useless feature

Not 'PRO' but a lot for the $$$

 

Good image if enough light ; shoulder-mount

poor low-light performance ; 1-CCD

Great Panasonic Cam

 

The Panasonic AG-DVC7 is a good camcorder. It isnt really compact, and looks very professional. It is made for those long hauls, where you need to use the cam for awhile. The videos look good - of great quality. And the best part is, it is economically...

This camcorder is pretty good. It has a very professional look. It has a powerful 15x zoom. The videos look great. It is really easy to use and handle. The 2.5 inch LCD screen is good. Performance wise, it is really good. It is very reasonably priced.

None that i have come across so far.

This camera is good for a beginner,has good quality color, good sound recording with the internal mic but I prefer the external mic for better direct voice recording.
