I bought 2 x HMC72's from Global Media Pro and apart from the fantasic
price and service these cameras must be the best value for money on the
site!!! Fantastic Image, even indoors and all the features you would
expect from a camera in the $10,000 price bracket!! Where can you get an
HD camera, shoulder mount with Pro XLR audio and everything a
videographer needs at a price like this?? I replaced my MD10000's with
these for weddings and the quality and performance way exceeds the price.
I was going to get Sony HD1000's at a few dollars less but the Panasonics
out-perform the Sony by miles!!! The 3 x CCD chips are heaps better than
the single CMOS chip!!! If you do events then these are the cameras to

If you're after a camera which allows you to make a HD feature film -
This is not the camera for you! The camera produces an excellent HD image
that will get you through a professional wedding, and dare I say, a low
to medium HD TV commercial or the like. After years of shooting on
Beta-sp I loved the weight of this camera (I've got a crook shoulder and
tennis elbow from my days of shooting with a Sony 537 dockable). The
images from the SDHC card are incredible. I still can't believe that I
don't need to stuff a tape in the side of the camera to record an image.
There's no real control over the lens, but a responsive auto-focus, WB,
etc makes up for it. It's nice to stick the camera in 'auto' and just
grab the images. The image storage capacity is incredible, as well as the
battery life. Try 6hrs of HD images on a single card, together with 2
hours of recording on the included battery. It's a whole new way of
shooting. I've never been a fan of Panasonic (I've always been a Sony man
from the days of U-matic, BVU and Beta-sp) but I've got to say I love
this camera. Remember, you are buying a $3000 camera, not a $30,000
camera. For $3000 you get a great pro camera that will do everything a
$30,000 camera can do at the low end of the market (weddings, training,
TVC's, etc). I love it!!!!
