Nice and compact. Attractive appearance. Does what it says in the description.

I felt the product use instructions should have included more detail, particular for anyone like me who has never before used a camcorder.

Panasonic HC-W580

 

Good price. Excellent picture quality and I like that you can connect to the TV wirelessly. The zoom is very good but you need to be careful as it can zoom in too fast if you are heavy handed. It is light fits into a large pocket. All in all a good buy

The main downside is that you cannot see the screen in sunny weather. I would have preferred a view finder but they are more expensive. I am not sure about the second camera lens and not sure if I will use it but it is there if the need arises.

Quality of picture, Powerful zoom range, Battery Life was good.

On/Off and other nearby buttons too small and fiddly. Difficult to know whether they have been pressed correctly.

Great

 

Fantastic piece of kit. The 90x zoom is great and certainly pulls in from a fair distance. Well done Panasonic.

Excellent 1080p camcorder

 

I purchased this camera for a few home movies and to record videos for YouTube. It has a lot of fantastic features for the money and the video quality is brilliant. The mic isn't the best but for a home video camcorder it is good enough.

Good Software. Easy to do short video clips. PIP [Picture In Picture] is a good idea. Stabilization 5 axis is visible, and helpful when a movie is record w/o external stabilizer or a tripod.

PIP camera is inconvenient to adjust during Recording, and shake a screen. When need, better to use external stabilizer.

Having bought this model, it seems impossible to purchase a spare battery, other than online from elsewhere.
