Panasonic AG-DVC7 Mini DV Camcorder Review

Fantastic camcorder!

 

Neither this camera nor the DVC20 supports XLR input, but I really wish that people would stop complaining about that! The Beachtek XLR-to-1/8" converter attaches to one of the DVC7's cold shoes and plugs right into the external micropone input. That's...

I bought this camcorder in Feb 2006 after renting it out a year before. This camcorder is fantastic! Colors are not as good as a 3 CCD unit, obviously, but in low-light conditions this camera completely whipped a Canon XL-1 (3 CCD) that I rented...

The 2.5" LCD is rather small, especially when the flip-out panel could easily accomodate a 3.5" LCD. Widescreen is 16:9 "soft matte", not anamorphic. 750x digital zoom is a totally useless feature

Definitely Professional Considering...

 

Panasonic AG-DVC7 seems to be aimed at those wedding videography professionals who were using the Panasonic AG-45X series or the AG-460 series of S-VHS format camcorders. I must applaud their marketing personnel as this group of wedding videographers ...

Great colors, look, price! Vivid black, ergonomic controls, Shoulder pad, Manual overrride. 16:9, EIS
