Not as expected

PANASONIC HC-V180EB-K Camcorder - Black

 

Recorded invaluable memories of the birth of our first child. Simple to use and playback on the big screen.

Sometimes hard to get the hand and fingers in the right place for one hand recording.

PANASONIC HC-V180EB-K Camcorder - Black

 

Light, responsive with many image variation features. A good all round "Full HD" camera

Great sound quality, but it is prone to wind noise which can be annoying. Any reasonable editing software should be able to help though.
