Great for the price, with one negative

This is certainly a good camcorder for the price and the image quality rivals ones costing double or even 3 times as much. The low light performance the zoom are both quite amazing.Read complete review

This is certainly a good camcorder for the price and the image quality rivals ones costing double or even 3 times as much. The low light performance the zoom are both quite amazing.

My only complaint is that the built in mic jack sounds terrible. It's very muffled sounding. This was not a deal-breaker for me because I use a Zoom H4n to record high quality audio separately so I can get by with never using the mic input jack on this camcorder. The built in mics on this video camera sound fine however so it seems that Panasonic optimized the audio for the built in mics but neglected the audio quality on the mic input jack.

UPDATE

Comments about Panasonic HC-V750 Full HD Camcorder:

I believe that a true testament to a product evaluation is the test of time. I own two of these puppies and have worked the hell out of them webcasting outdoors in Alaska. They are both working fine after two years and the picture quality is great in all types of lighting.

Comments about Panasonic HC-V750 Full HD Camcorder:

Anything that is easy enough for me to figure out without having to constantly consult the owner's manual is a-ok in my book, and the HC-V750 fits the bill. I've used it only a couple of times, but am thrilled with the picture quality.

I did not realize, when I ordered this camera, that it has a built in light, which is handy. It's not terribly powerful, but it is useful for close range shots in low light.

I have only ever used cheap, little point and shoot video cameras, so this is a nice step up. I'm not thrilled with the quality of still images, but that's not why I bought it, anyway. I have professional DSLRs for that.

All in all, I am very happy with this purchase thus far.

    Comments about Panasonic HC-V750 Full HD Camcorder:

    I've had it for a few weeks and I have captured several videos of my kids. I love the picture quality and the fact that the light comes on automatically if the room is too dark. I'm so happy to be capturing these memories because soon my kids will be grown and gone and now I will have memories to look back on.

        We as a Church like to video our programs.
        Due to noise in Sound Booth, need an audio feed, Isolated ground module, to camcorder. Works with my Canon but sounds poor.
        Have a HDMI Input on our PC to record the Video,
        using a smart phone disables the HDMI output.

          A lot of features in a little box. I use this camera for my YouTube channel and it works great! I really like the wifi features of this little camera. I can control the entire camera from my smartphone or tablet. The only thing I don't like about it is that it does not have a separate battery charger. The batter is charged through the camera power cable. That is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.

          Comments about Panasonic HC-V750 Full HD Camcorder:

          I've used all sorts of cameras in my 25 year career, mostly broadcast grade. I've been using this camera for about 9 months, mainly for interviews and demonstrations. The image quality in good lighting is excellent. I did a 2 camera shoot using this for B roll and edited together footage shot with a $[$] Panasonic. I expected to have to do a lot of image adjustment to match the video, but I had a very hard time telling any difference. Amazingly good image quality for this price.You can run pretty much everything in manual mode if you want to using the touch screen, which is unusual at the price point. Or you can select from a couple of levels of automated settings. Overall I think the controls are good. There are two downsides with this camera for the type of work I do. Though the internal mics are very clean, external mic input is noisy. I have to use noise reduction during editing when shooting dialog. The other downside is the zoom control, and this is not really a complaint at this price point. But it is hard to control a smooth slow zoom. The control software you can install on your phone is OK if all you want to do is stop and start the recorder. The time lag in the display is very noticable and at a slow frame rate.

          I bought this camcorder solely for the purpose of LiveStreaming. After hours of going through the manual, through the Panasonic site, the Panasonic app, every review I could, every YouTube video available I STILL couldn't get the LiveStream application to work on the camcorder. Really disappointing. That said, the picture quality is amazing and it is really fun to be able to control the camcorder from my iPad. I just wish that I could have used the camcorder for my intended purpose

            I bought this camera to upgrade to HD video. Having never owned a Panasonic camcorder before, I was a little unsure. After using it, I realized that this camera one of the best steady shot systems I've ever seen or used. Pictures quality is fantastic, and the sound is wonderful.

              My department had budgeted 3k for a camera with wireless capabilities and great quality. After a bit of searching, we found this one. The quality of footage is impeccable at a small fraction of the price. This model works great as a mounted unit 100ft from the stage and still delivers excellent quality. It's also removable to feed wirelessly through our network. Great piece of equipment at a great price!!!

                Have been using it for a month. Use it 90% of the time to video my one-year-old. Good quality picture and sound, easy to use. I still have yet to use many of the more advanced features, such as wifi. My only complaint is that the built-in light, which is clearly useful sometimes, is not quickly turned on and off. As far as I can tell, one has to go in to the settings and change it there.

                    Comments about Panasonic HC-V750 Full HD Camcorder:

                    My first disappointment came after recording a concert at the high-quality MP4 setting [1080/50M]. The camera breaks the recording up into 11-minute files. Ideally they should be seamless when played, but, in this case the sound dropped out at the end of each 11-minute file. This was the first music concert by a new quartet, and the result is so bad even Plural Eyes can't sync the video to a separate sound recording. Very disappointing, Panasonic.

                    The second problem is slow motion.From the owner's manual: "The number of pixels/frame rate of FULL HD Slow Motion Video recording are fixed to 1920k1080/60p." That is only half speed. In order to get 1/4 speed (120 fps), it must be converted in-camera before it can be downloaded to your computer. Again, very disappointing.

                    Considering the failure of these two key features, this camera is very much overpriced.

                        So far we have used this camera in filming a musical production at a local school and will be performing an interview with it tomorrow. It has provided high quality video with good sound in a darkened room on the low light settings. Only downside so far is the touch screen is kinda shabby. Definitely don't expect an iPhone screen. I wish there were more buttons on the body to take you to sub menus but navigating all the sub menus can take some time. Other than that, though, it's fantastic!

                        Just a note, if you plan on using the video for most normal uses or on a Mac, I definitely recommend you change the settings to MP4. The AVCHD videos were not being recognized by our iMac (though it is several years old). However, when we imported it through the software onto a PC, it was much lower quality than the .mp4 and didn't look good. Furthermore, the process took much longer than copying it off a memory card. Just a note.

                        I bought the camcorder mainly to record my baby granddaughter, having used so far for this purpose Panasonic M700, 2 different canon vixia consumer models. None of them compare close to the V750 in image quality. Since the main use is indoors, it satisfies my requirement of low light sensitivity. The auto focus is far speedier than the Canons, which performs poorly in low light. The superior image stabilization enabled me to follow the one year old around the house and yet come out with a video that would not induce sea sickness.
                        However, to get a spare battery, you have to spring for the genuine Panasonic product at a pretty hefty price. So if I use it to record a concert as a second or third camera (un-manned), you need either to change the battery or run a line to a power outlet. I did, on one occasion, use a cell phone power bank (5v 6000 mAh) taped to the tripod and the camcorder's mini-USB cable for a two hour concert without apparent ill effect. It may void the warranty but my main concern was to meet the exigency and it came through with flying colors.

                        This is certainly a good camcorder for the price and the image quality rivals ones costing double or even 3 times as much. The low light performance the zoom are both quite amazing.

                        My only complaint is that the built in mic jack sounds terrible. It's very muffled sounding. This was not a deal-breaker for me because I use a Zoom H4n to record high quality audio separately so I can get by with never using the mic input jack on this camcorder. The built in mics on this video camera sound fine however so it seems that Panasonic optimized the audio for the built in mics but neglected the audio quality on the mic input jack.

                        The quality is great, the built in mic is fantastic, but the ability to connect an external mic is perfect. The built in wifi works great, the delay is about 1.5 seconds which doesn't bother me. If it bothers you then you need to get over it because all camcorders will do that right now and you don't need it to be perfectly in time.

                            Everything works as expected for this price point. The build quality is the only thing that I wonder about over the long term. It's a fairly light piece of equipment, and I feel like I have to be cerful with it or else it might break. We'll see. My old Sony had a much more solid, metal feel.
