Panasonic HC-V800 Reviews

Fantastic Panasonic Camcorder!

By Michael
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-07-16

This Camcorder exceeds all of my expectations for a 1080P/60 unit. This video is crystal clear in all but the lowest light situations and the photos are just as sharp as any point and shoot digital camera available. Just make sure you purchase extra batteries and a charger to go with it as it only comes with one battery and no charger (you must charge the battery while it is connected to the camcorder with the included power cord.) The SD cards you should get for this unit are the SDXC type U3 of at LEAST 128 GB or better. Great camcorder!

I upgraded from a 10 year old Panasonic camcorder & this new one is a major improvement. My favorite thing is that it is ready to record almost immediately after turning it on, and the battery power lasts much longer. The video quality is incredible & it is an easy camera to setup and use. I film a lot of birds and wildlife and have been very happy with the camera's performance.

Panasonic HC-V800 -- Just Right

By Bennett
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-05-27

I'm no video expert, but I love this camera. Bought it to film my son's high school baseball games. During the pandemic, spectators are not allowed to get close, so had to film everything from the stands or odd angles down the line. With this camera, I can shoot from the outfield fences and still get crisp, high-res video. There are so many options and configurations (not that that's a bad thing) that it'll take me through his college years to learn it all, but the footage I'm gathering is really good. It's conveniently sized; I throw it in my handy Ruggard Onyx 25 Camera/Camcorder Shoulder Bag and off I go. I find the Ulanzi MT-11 Multifunctional Octopus Tripod (which people all the time ask me where I got it) to be really helpful as it allows me to mount the camera on almost any fence or railing for more stability. Got everything at B&H. My salesman was patient and didn't try to sell me. Good experience all around.

A great Podcast Camcorder

By Rick

I purchased my first Panasonic HC-V800 from B&H Photo in 2019. When decided to start our video podcast this year we wanted to do it all-pro utilizing a three camera shoot. With all the great professional features and high HD quality videos we had already produced with the HC-V800 the choice was simple. We purchased two more of these fine cameras from B&H Photo. During recording we send individual stereo audio feeds from our mics/mixer to the three cameras audio input jacks. The recorded video/audio is transferred to the computer where we post mix the three camera footage to one finished video that has three camera angles that were chosen/switched during post edit. These cameras have large 1/2.5-type BSI MOS Sensors that are awesome in low light and produce HD video that rivals 4K. These are awesome cameras and I know of no other that can compete in the same price range.
