This camcorder is very good, beats the heck out of vx2000 especially\nthe accurate white balance and very nice color reproduction.\n\nIt is a very capable camcorder however I have one bone to pick with\nit.\n\nYou need to do something about the packaging. Yes you provide more\nstuff than sony, but you lose TERRIBLY in packaging because the\nbrown box it came with (like any other grocery paper fruit boxes) is\ndisgraceful compared to the high quality eye catching box that\nsony's came in. The first impression is destroyed with the\npoor packaging.\n\nThat's where panasonic is piss poor at, marketing/packaging.\nWhen we had to fork out over rm 10,000 for a prosumer camcorder\nthe least we expect is the camcorder to come in a cheap grocery\nbox that even sony consumer camcorders don't come in.\n\nPanasonic image is severely dented where packaging is concerned,\nyou really need to fix your image or else others will feel you're\nselling cheap ass grocery stuff at those prices.\n\nThis is reporting from Malaysia, where my friend ordered the\nunit that was shipped from KL to Johor Bahru.\n\n\n-\-\nWho would have known wookies were computer experts?\n\nWhat kind of file compression should I use?\nChewbacca: RARRR!!!\nHmm.. this audio file is missing a header! What kind is it?\nChewbacca: RAWWWW!!!\nWhat kind of processor should i put in my new handheld PDA?\nChewbacca: ARRRRRRRMM!!!
