Panasonic VDR-D200 Camcorder Review

 

The Panasonic VDR-D200 is one step up from the VDR-D100, Panasonic's entry-level camcorder. There are a small handful of extra features - centering on still features and bundled software - but the core imaging specs are the same. We certainly weren't...

The Panasonic VDR-D200 is essentially the same camcorder as the VDR-D100 but with a video light (a feature of dubious value) and some still features that you're better off not using. Should you buy it? Probably not. We liked the VDR-D100 well enough,...

Panasonic VDR-D200

 

Last year's Panasonic VDR-D75 is a more contrasty image, with thick, sharp lines between objects. The colors were also more saturated, particularly the yellows with stronger overall blues

Unreliable DVD recordings!

 

Too unreliable to trust for important footage, so why bother? Mine is for sale cheap, and I'll be looking at a hard-drive based recorder next.

Great optical zoom, intuitive controls and operation, good battery life, good a/v connections and cables

I've filled 20 mini-DVDs with precious home video - EVERY SINGLE DVD has issues playing back, and the files can't be copied to a computer without using special DVD file recovery software. The recording mechanism in the camera is very unreliable

Panasonic DVR200 mini DVD recorder

 

The compact size makes it easy to carry and hold up for long recording times.

The video and still shots are seperated from eachother on mini DVD and SD ram.

pause and record can be easily confused
