DO NOT buy this camcorder!
Major Battery problem!
by duttasanjiv on November 29, 2012
Pros: Decent picture Quality (not honest FULL HD quality) & faithful color re-production. Auto lens cap open-closure, auto switch on-off, flash & video (LED) light. Lightweight
Cons: * 15 mP is just hype. Its qlty is same as sd90 & still pic really aweful - like 3 MP mobile phone camera.
* Inconv. touch screen focussing. No spot focussing.
* 3D attachment not available in India. Costs approx. Rs 25k!
* Quality is just 720p!
Summary: DO NOT buy this camcorder!
I am from Guwahati, India and being an PANASONIC enthusiast, bought it in July 2012. Last year also I bought HDC SD90 which was predecessor ...
Summary: DO NOT buy this camcorder!
I am from Guwahati, India and being an PANASONIC enthusiast, bought it in July 2012. Last year also I bought HDC SD90 which was predecessor to this one. But surprisingly last year they gave an extra battery for free!! After using it I noticed the reason was, they knew well their batteries were of cheap chinese quality (in fact they are china made). For the first 20- 25 min. it works well, but then though meter shows 45 min left, it rapidly reduces and eventually the camera shuts down!
This year they didn't offer extra battery so I thought they get rid of the problem. But to my horror, same problem started after few cycles of use! Worse, the battery itself became dead after 3 months of use - believe it or not.
PANASONIC just replied they don't have warranty on battery! Now they stopped replying my mails. They are robbing ppl. as its very costly for a moderate quality camcorder (Rs. 40000/-) and yet they are deliberately supplying defective batteries.
I am preparing for consumer case against PANASONIC and swear not to trust their products in future. Friends, my honest advice is not to buy it - rather go for SONY - whose battery lasted for 4.5 years in a miniDV cam.

Other downside of this model:
* 15 mP is pure marketing gimmick. The quality is same as last year's model & still pic qlty is really aweful - like 3 MP mobile phone camera.
* Iris control is another gimmick - no visible difference on video of iris control.
* Practically unusable touch screen focussing. No spot focussing option.
* Non-friendly menu.
* Non-responsive touch screen.
* It is NOT 3D READY! How? The attachment is not available in India! Even the call center guys or sales guys have no idea of price (unoffically its approx. Rs 25k!). And you can't even zoom while 3D-caming.

- Description: Fast-moving subjects, such as in sports scenes, are smoothly recorded. The progressive recording of the V700 fully complies with the AVCHD progressive standard. High sensitivity sensor portrays brightly lit scenes beautifully, and also captures dimly lit scenes with crisp, bright images and minimal noise. It produces stunning images in all kinds of situations, such as shooting indoors and at night. Because the pixels of this sensor are densely aligned, Intelligent Resolution technology can be used when the intelligent 46x zoom exceeds the optical 21x zoom level, while maintaining the HD pixel count for high-powered zoom shots with incredible beauty. The crystal engine pro instantly processes the huge amount of data that goes into Full-HD images, and further enhances Full-HD quality. It produces smooth, high-resolution zoom shots even when the range exceeds the limit for optical zooming. Crystal engine pro clearly delineates even the tiniest details of your subject, with extremely natural beauty. In addition, its Noise Reduction (NR) technology has been completely redesigned. The low-frequency noise that occurs when recording in dim lighting has been further minimized. And Intelligent Resolution technology ensures sharp and crisp pictures, resulting in bright and beautifully colored motion images. The Intelligent Resolution technology incorporated in the crystal engine pro uses edge detection technology to confirm the edges of objects within the image, and then emphasizes the edges for optimal clarity. For example, it brings crisp definition to patterns and the outlines of objects like flowers. Conversely, it reduces noise and enhances the natural smoothness of parts without edges, like the sky. The increased sharpness is especially effective for images with delicate details. This highly advanced technology maximizes the beauty of Full-HD images.
