Very good image stabilization; well-designed; manual controls.
Low-resolution LCD; dated user interface; poor low-light video; no external mic, headphone jacks.
The Panasonic SDR-H85 standard-definition camcorder is worth considering for its manual controls and powerful zoom lens in a very compact body--not video quality.

First of all the camcorder is ultra light and small, it fits in the palm of your hand. Out of the box programming and setting up is super easy , you just follow the manual which is very simple to do. All the bottons are very conveniently located. The quality of the recordings is excellent , for a novice user like me. Great zooming capability , beautiful colors and image quality. I had other camcorders previous to this one , one Panasonic and one JVC , and the truth is I never expected this camcorder to be so user friendly .
We originally purchased this camera to document and film company events and trainings. While it is small in the hand and somewhat delicate to handle, it works very well. We have especially enjoyed the on-board Hard drive. That has been very convenient as many times we have found ourselves using other camcorders and without a backup storage just in case we fill the SD card that came in the camera. This is a great feature.
Amazing standard definition video recorder. This unit has 80 GB of internal storage, with a capacity to use SD--SDHC--SDXC cards from 1GB thru 64GB. Take pictures, or shoot video, or make stills of video you have taken. Easy to load to my HP laptop, than easy to burn a DVD to share the captured memories. Not being a real techie, I can still manage this device. Anyone can enjoy this video camera. Very light with memory cards and extra batteries readily available.
A very good camcorder, easy to operate. I was hoping for HD quality, but the video is still good. The self-contained hard drive is great, and a video card, not included with this purchase, may be used also.
this unit is very simple and compact .all buttons are easy to operate.screen is not so large but it can be rotated for better view of pictures.
