Two Birds With One Stone

 

I often wondered why I had to buy a camcorder AND a digital camera to get the job done. Well, I don't have to wonder anymore, because this camcorder is both. Yes, I know that this combination has been available for awhile now. However, I make...

Great technology, very user friendly and tons of great features

A technological wiz for a techie failure like me

 

My Panasonic Palmcorder Palmsight PV-L779 is a dream-come true. I allowed my magical camcorder-digital still camera combination to age for almost a year so that I could thoroughly analyze the features and functioning throughout a long test period. Now...

two cameras in one, great results

awkward design elements

a fine combo

 

I was looking for a combination digital camera/camcorder for about four months before I finally researched and bought this camera. I have owned Panasonic products in the past with excellent durability and longevity, and so far this one has lived up to...

ease of use, convenience of two camera features in one

no really high quality results from either function

Outstanding camera

 

The panasonic line of cameras are among the best we've seen. We checked out a lot of cameras before deciding on the PV-L779D which is the upgrade to the 759. It has 300x Digital Zoom, an 8 meg chip for recording digital pictures, the color LCD screen,...

easy to use, great pictures, great video

B&W viewfinder, would be nice if it were SLR instead

Happy I finally chose this one

 

I've been looking for a camcorder for a long while and I finally purchased the PV-L780 which I believe is similar to the 759 model. I got it as a clearance/open box item at Circuit City for $500. I was holding out for the new 850 model as it has a...

Very easy to use

None really, a bit heavy perhaps

PV-L750 (2000 model)

 

I just purchased the Panasonic PV-L750. This is the 2000 model VHS-C camcorder. It is 2nd from the top in Panasonic's camcorder line (first being the PV-L850). My last purchase was the PV-L758 (1998 model, which was recently rendered unusable after...

Ease of use, picture quality

More features than useful

Camcorders

 

I think this is one of the neatest products around. I couldn't believe the zoom on this camcorder. My daughter is in a activity called Colorguard/Winterguard. She performs on football fields and in school gymnasiums. I love the close-ups. I had...

Panasonic Palmcorders: Convenient with Good Features

 

In December of 1998, my wife and I purchased the Panasonic PV-L758 palmcorder. In terms of features and performance, it's pretty much the same unit as the PV-L759. Just a few cosmetic touches here and there to make the newer model.

Lightweight ; easy to use ; consumer-friendly design

Don't know what I would do without mine!!!!!!

 

I purchased my panasonic camcorder at sears. I was at the time a new mother. Now that I have one fixing to go to kindergarden and one who is 3, I feel like I can't live without mine. I love the compact size, and the VHS-C tapes are so easy to...

Very compact, and the vhs-c tapes are easy to store.

Great camcorder

 

We purchased this camcorder because we wanted to capture our 3 children's growing years on tape. It has been very easy to use. It is compact and lightweight. I have found Panasonic to be very reliable. It has a 4" screen which makes seeing what...

Needs bigger flash card for digital pictures
