Panasonic Palmcorder PV-DV52 review: Panasonic Palmcorder PV-DV52

 

Panasonic Palmcorder PV-DV52

Very good video quality; light and relatively compact; side-loading cassette; smooth zoom control; inexpensive.

Awkward menu and manual focus control; noisy low-light images; weak built-in light.

It lacks bells and whistles but offers better performance than you'd expect from a low-priced MiniDV camcorder.

Panasonic PV DV52

 

Panasonic PVDV52 MiniDV Digital Camcorder w/ 2.5" Color LCD.

Although its 10x optical zoom is lower than other camcorders, it still provides a close-up image for average recording, and a hefty 700x digital zoom capability as well. The image stabilization feature of the PV-DV52 worked well, keeping our frame...

Great Deal

 

DO your research! i did days of research on cameras before i decided on this one. I knew of the cameras short comings before i bought it. However most of the video examples online were shot by joe somebody and dont really show off what the camera is...

Cheap! Great features that are normally found on much more expensive cameras. the Image stabilization is amazing! lightweight and easy to use. very versatile. built in sound recording is pretty good

picture quality, while the resolution of the video is 1920 x 1080 the image is actually up-converted to meet that. this is especially noticeable when zoomed in near 50X. The battery life is pretty weak when recording. The manual controls are very...

Horrible

 

Lightweight and small

Picture quality is not great. My pocket camera takes movies that are just as good. The quality of the still pictures is terrible
