Panasonic's DVC80 was one of the best Mini-DV camocorder values ever. This semi-professional black beauty shares the same lens, CCD system and most features of the classic DVX100B which is the best in history. The DVC80's lifespan was only a year, as...

Rugged construction, XLR inputs, firwire, three 1/3" CCDs, reliable like crazy

Use extenal mic as some motor zoom noise can be heard in quiet moments

I've used the Panasonic AG-DVC80 for approximately 2 1/2 years. Purchased it used on Ebay and am totally satisfied. I'm partial to Panasonic products. All 3 of my cameras are Panasonic 3ccd SD cameras. The DVC80 is basically the little brother to the...

Excellent Audio w/XLR inputs. Easy to use. Excellent Color. Smooth operation. Light weight. Pull out display larger than most. 3" display. One of the few cameras that will export and import via firewire and composite simultanesouly

Onboard Mic noise. Motor and hand noise ; Needs an eye piece on the side like a professional camera

I bought this camera not too long after owning a GL2 for over a year. I was looking for a camera that gave me a bit more manual control over zoom, focus and audio. This camera was definately the right choice! Panasonic has definately listened to...

Light weight, easy to use and easy access to buttons on outside of camera, full manual controls, great in low light, all around awesome unit

Limited auto features, no internal digital effects

I needed a camera that could work with higher and lower light levels than my GL1; the DVC80 can do that. It's strongest assets are its ease of use and professional features. The image is actually quite good for a unit with a street price under $3,000....

Because of the button and switch layout; and its wide(r) angel lens, it's a great shoot-on-the-run camera. Don't underestimate this utiity - how may shots haven't worked out because you couldn't make adjustments soon enough?. The XLR inputs, and its...

For the price - none. The camera has a light feel and some internal lens component klunks slightly (tech support said this was normal). The unit also has produced (twice) some sort of very small, swirling, artifacts when the autofocus seems to be hunting
