    Default Panasonic HDC-MDH1 Pro PAL Camcorder

    Has anyone come across this camcorder 'Panasonic HDC-MDH1 Pro PAL' It's a good make but it seems too cheap. (£750 ish new.) It will be used for outdoor nature and wildlife so sound is not a priority but a good optical zoom is, which it has. It shoots in AVCHD on SD card. Is this better than tape? Also I notice that when buying new, the cards and tapes are not included. Is this normal? I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

    It is that price for a reason. I have no experience with the camera BUT I do know that it looks like a "PRO" camera but it's not. It would be much more expensive if it was. I'm sure you will get a nice image from it if you can use it properly as most Panasonics are nice cameras. At £750 ish that is cheap even for this camera, It's normally another £100. It is normal not to have tapes or cards when you by a camera but a lot of retailers offer packages which often include them.

    I would simply advise that with cameras you get what you pay for and at £750 you will get a good consumer camera.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Midnight Blue. I was wanting something just a little bit better than a normal run of the mill camcorder but what you say makes good sense. Cheers. It mainly seems to sell for £900 plus but I found 2 suppliers sub £800.
