Image quality

 

Panasonic DVD Palmcorder VDR-M30

Relatively small and lightweight; secure, comfortable grip; sharp, clear LCD.

Indecisive autofocus; poor color viewfinder; flush-mounted control buttons can be hard to operate; noticeable compression artifacts.

If recording to DVD grabs you, this Panasonic offers decent features for family and business videography.

I hate it. Buy mine on EBay tomorrow. Please!

 

I bought mine 10/9/2003. I'm selling it on EBay tomorrow (12/19/2005). 1) Panasonic tech support is appallingly bad: they hide the phone number, then require you to input tons of stuff just to talk to a person, then the person may not even know how to ...

They probably don't make it anymore. That's the "Pro

Bundled software sucks. Tech support sucks. DVD-RAM media sucks
