Great Images and Features

 

First, the things I don't like about the Panasonic PV-DC352 (context: I spent the past four years using a Sony TRV65 Hi8 Camcorder): Most annoying to me is that the date is either on or off, unlike the Sony, where you could display the date for ten...

Image clarity, color, good fit in hand, solid feel, access to manual white balance

Date won't automatically display for 10 seconds, LCD hard to see outside.

Product Specifications

The ultra-compact digital Palmcorder PV-DC352 is pocket-sized, SD-compatible and captures the same high-quality digital video as conventional sized camcorders. Its super-small dimensions (3.66 x 2.79 x 5.47) make this camcorder so portable that you can bring it almost anywhere. The PV-DC352 features high-quality lens developed by world-renowned lens maker Leica, which captures crisp detail and true-to-life color. The lens features a 1.3 mega-pixel CCD (charged coupled device) which converts optical data into digital information, letting you capture crisp, clear images in high resolution. This camcorder can also be used as a high-quality digital still camera. The PV-DC352 comes with an SD Memory Card, a versatile, high-capacity memory card, which assures smooth networking with PCs, TVs, and PDAs that are equipped with an SD slot. Shoot full color video and stills when you're in low light situations. The digital electronic image stabilizer compensates for unintentional hand and camcorder movement when recording. Progressive PhotoShot Mode helps to eliminate fuzziness by digitally capturing the image data of a singular moment, and temporarily storing it in two field memories. The two images are then combined to produce a better quality picture. Cinema Mode records video in the same 16: 9 aspect ratio as a movie screen, giving your videos a dramatic, cinematic effect during playback. Videos are recorded in high-quality, high compression MPEG4 format, making it simple to transfer them from your SD Memory Card to a PC to save, edit, email, or post on the Internet. The PV-DC352 lets you record conversations or personal messages with the built-in, microphone, and then save them to an SD Memory Card. Zoom Mic works the same way as video zoom, to get matching audio from subjects at a distance. A color LCD lets you view your subject in full color during shooting and playback through a large, 2.5" LCD screen. The ultra-compact camcorder can also record on Mini DV tapes to deliver crisp digital images, long recording time, and PC editing capabilities. It comes provided with a wired and an IR remote control.
