Panasonic SV-AV30 e-wear

 

The SV-AV30 is the latest addition to Panasonic's e-wear line of all-in-one portables. The device combines the basic features of a digital still camera and camcorder, an MP3 player, and a voice recorder with personal-video-player (PVP) capabilities,...

Ultracompact clamshell design; five-in-one device; includes a cradle for TV recording and playback.

Image quality is no match for that of dedicated cameras and camcorders; ships with a paltry 64MB SD card; no lens cover.

It can't replace a camera or a camcorder, but the SV-AV30 is a friendly, all-in-one A/V solution that fits in your pocket.

"It's fun and handy to have around."

 

Overall I think this is a very sufficient item. The only thing that kind of bothers me is that my pictures show up clearly on the camera screen, but when I develop them the come out either blurry or dark. I also noticed that when you video tape and...

It's nice to have so many things to come in one package. It's better than having to lug around a camera, a video recorder, a tape recorder, and a mp3 player.

When developed the pictures come out blurry.

"A great little camera."

 

Great features, reliable, can take a beating. It plays MP3's flawlessly, takes decent pictures, and video files. Captures great sound in video, and voice recording modes. Extremely compact! The screen can be closed, yet you can still record. The batt

slow framerate for video, flash has a tendency to white out objects closer than 4 feet. The LCD screen stays on no matter what while recording or when youre connected to the PC, resulting in loss of battery power. The programs associated with the SV-AV30

"Don't pay too much"

 

An overall good product. It's small, and doeseverything pretty well. This isn't supposed replace a video or digital camera, it's just a toy. But it 's a good toy.

Avoid the zoom feature. The image and mp3 software aren't the best. The flash washes out things that are too close.
