Panasonic VDR-D250 First Impressions Camcorder Review - Panasonic DVD Camcorders

 

Since its inception, we have qualified the DVD format as one offering ease of use at the expense of image quality. While Sony has made major strides last year and this year in the DVD market, Panasonic has quick to push the boundaries. The Panasonic...

The Panasonic D250 is a chunky looking camcorder and comes in at a great price

Good value for money, Image quality

Your £500 buys a good clutch of higher-end features. These include manual functions covering white balance, shutter speed, focus and exposure. You also get camcorder function staples like Backlight Compensation, Fade and Tele-macro mode

Best Camcorder among three different camcorders I used

 

I once used Canon ZR300 and elura100, but only this one can satisfy my need for vedeo quality.

Vedeo Effect is brillant ; Easy to handle ; Small size and cool appearance

No flashlight ; Still picture is still not that good

Consumer review by:

good camera

 

I don't know much about camcorders and needed one for our baby's birth.

It is easy to use. Turning on, recording and playback. Screen is large. It's compact.

joystick is a little awkward to handle but didn't really compare with other camcorders. The instructions were a little confusing, especially formatting and figuring out what works works best for me.
