    we had to get ALL 163 contestants and put them up on YouTube. I had two of these, plus a Pana 920 and a Pana 900. I couldn't tell the difference between the 750 and the 3-sensor 900-series camcorders.

    Excellent sound, for an on-board mic. We used feeds from the sound boards whenever we could and synced the soundtracks during editing.

    The case is plastic, not metal, so that's a minus, but the optics and electronics seem to be top-notch for this kind of camera in this application.

    An earphone and mic jack would have been very useful and I don't know why Pana didn't include them unless it's to keep from cannibalizing the sales of the higher-end products.

    I'd say I'd buy it again but I already have two!

    I bought this camera for documentation of a music project. I expected to be able to use my Zoom H2n as an external stereo mic. However the camera MIC input does not support headphone level signal (possibly faulty mic powering circuit).The audio quality of the internal mics is poor. A lot of handling noise, poor preamp performance, hiss and other audio problems. AGC and AUTO audio modes are very aggresive.I like the image stabilization, especially the levelling asistance. A great help for free hand shooting. Also the choice of recording formats is rich. Decent lens.

      Comments about Panasonic HC-V750 Full HD Camcorder:

      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.

      This is the best for an amateur and it is excellent for starting professional film making. It has resources that are not found in other amateurs devices.

                Gread quality camera. The only problem is when I need to use with professional mic's, so I bought the DXA-4 Dual XLR. Now I can input professional mic and line.
                The price is a good deal for a great image.
                Touchscreen is cool also.

                I love this camcorder. I love the mountains and when I go there this summer I definitely will use this most of the time. The steady zoom is fast and accurate. The 3 inch LCD screen is just big enough. I like the way you can hold it with one hand. Just right. There is a lot of different features on this camcorder. One thing I would recommend is to get the longer lasting battery. For me one battery is not enough.

                Comments about Panasonic HC-V750 Full HD Camcorder:

                Like most everyone else, I was trying to get the best camera for the amount of money I could spend. For me, sensor size was a primary point as well as a strong audio section. I play live hard rock music in a number of different bands so my video needs are pretty demanding. Low light quality is an absolute must so I searched out the largest sensor size I could find in this price point the HC-V750 had it. This camera does not disappoint. In even the darkest of clubs it takes stellar, gorgeous video. Bright, crisp and clear. Video better than my bare eyes even. ;) Plenty of zoom, the subject tracking features are great and the iAuto setting perfectly adjusts shutter needs as the lighting changes and the scene varies throughout the show. Truly a set it and forget it. Previously we were using a number of GoPros to try and do the same job and as good as they are, they can't hold a candle the 750 in this application.

                Next up is the mics and audio. I have and use an external boom mic and fully planned on using it with the 750 (ext mic in is a feature I searched out also). Just for grins I've tried the internal mics with some custom settings and level controls. I have to say, the stock mics are the best I've ever had on a camera. They handle not only the extremely wide range of frequencies in live music but everything from a whisper to a full on hard rock band in a club shaking down the walls. I was absolutely shocked at well they do. The audio section has settings that cover every possibly need. Now it's debatable if I even use the external boom mic, although it does look way more professional with it sitting up there a top the camera. Which by the way, has a perfectly located shoe mount for just this type of thing. They really seemed to think of everything with this camera, all bases covered extremely well.

                  Comments about Panasonic HC-V750 Full HD Camcorder:

                  While I only just purchased the HC-V750, I've already had a chance to use it for a professional photoshoot and I am impressed with the results. Easily one of the finest camcorders for the price, or even several steps up. The sensor is more than twice the size of the Canon I had been using, which makes for higher resolution and lower noise. The lens is high quality and the features are intelligently implemented, such as the detachable hot shoe, the auto open/close lens cover, and the layout of features. I don't expect to use the WiFi feature, so that's just a bonus to me. Videos are very stable, and there's a nifty "camera level" feature if you want it. I shoot with a shoulder-mounted steadicam rig, but in a pinch I could shoot confidently handheld. I use an external mic, so I have not tested the audio. Zoom is great, if a bit of a delicate touch so take care to zoom smoothly and gradually.

                  I purchased this camcorder last week and used almost 4 hours. I shot the video 1080p mode. Video quality is good , but no as good as a dslr camera. Actually I was expecting this result because I know that this camera bit rate is low. Overall, I like the camera performance , especially under the low light condition. Pros:lightweight-compact; easy to handle and carrySlick ; outside appearance is good. button is nice though materials seems cheap Low light: good low light performance Cons:Batter dies in 1-1.5 hours if you shot in best quality. You have to use wall charger if you shot something long.No internal memory Bit rate is not so good.Not recommended for short movie or documentaries

                        I purchased this camera as an introductory camera to a Digital Media class using a chroma key and virtual sets. I did not expect the quality I discovered after the purchase. It has an excellent picture, sensitive internal mic, and excellent zoom range. I truly lucked out finding this.

                          Camera is used for recording events at my church. Good video quality, the mic input is great for running a line out of a sound board. Smart phone connectivity is nice as well.

                          Camera is awesome...I use it specifically for hunting purposes and when I play it back through the hdmi cable on the tv it looks amazing...like I'm actually watching a hunting show on the sportsmans channel. Love it!!!

                            I purchased this camera to record our Dance Band. We're typically playing in low light conditions, so I needed a camera that excels in that area.

                            This one does an excellent job!

                            I needed a 4th Camera that would be close to my Sony EX1 but economical for stationary shots. This Camera can record a 1920x1080 50 Mbps MP4 File which offers the Picture Quality needed to come very close to the EX1 a ($5k + camera). Has Full manual settings to allow Full control with a Mic input.

                                I bought the cam corder to use to record the our Pastor's sermons on Sunday morning to then be posted to our church's website. This relatively inexpensive camera produces professional quality. We are able to input a mic directly into the camera so the audio quality is awesome. Very happy with the purchase.

                                This works just like the pro cams downstairs at B&H, only smaller, and with 3.5mm audio inputs instead of XLR.

                                If your're looking for pro quality at consumer prices - look no further.

                                  Comments about Panasonic HC-V750 Full HD Camcorder:

                                  The camera is compact, has great high definition options and also has good still camera images with max 24 Megapixel, 6528 x 3672 on still images. Has jacks for external microphone and headphones. Great slow motion and time lapse features. Also has a variety of options for manual settings. The battery life is limited to a little over an hour of recording, so I ordered the larger battery for extended use without recharging.
