Here's a clip showing the sharpness of this camera in 1080p mode:

Hi there,

Despite not all posts being positive about this camcorder I might have a go at it. The samples I've seen looked OK after converting to AVCHD and played back on a Sony BR player.

The only thing that worries me a little is the power supply for the battery charger - I'm in 220V Europe and I don't particularly want to use a 110>220V converter.

Could those of you who have the camcorder check what supply voltage the battery charger accepts? Many of those things are designed to work on anything between 40 and 240V, but I'd like to be certain.

If you watch footage directly from the cam on a TV, does the camcorder have to run off the built-in battery or is there an input for external power somewhere?

TIA,

Krouebi (2)

Krouebi,

The charger says input of 100-240V 50/60Hz, so you should be OK. You have to run the cam from the internal battery when using it with the TV; I'm not aware of any external power jack.

I think you'll really enjoy this unit.

Best,

Brian

Brian,

Thanks for this very quick answer - I think I'll go ahead then.

Kind regards,

Krouebi

Hi everybody, first off great site!

But, got a problem here... Mine just arrived from walmart.com and I'm running into the same "file error" problem when trying to record. After only 10 to 15 seconds while recording in either 1080p or 720p a big red "file error" screen comes up.

I tried formatting the card using the camera, using windows, and using that Panasonic card formatting program that somebody else suggested but none of them have resolved the issue. I'm going to try and pick up a different card and give that a shot but thus far cannot record anything. Any suggestions? (photos don't work either)

:-?


thanks~

Sounds like a card problem; the fact that you also can't take pix suggests the card is bad.

Best,

Brian

i'm trying to install the new firmware but whenever i drag the .bin file into the removable drive, it says: The item "dvh598.bin" could not be moved because "NO NAME" cannot be modified.

i'm using a mac, if that helps.
any ideas?
