Reviews

SDR-H85A is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great camera - not so great software We've owned ours for over 3 years and used it extensively. It does a great job of recording - our only negative being that it does not do as well as some in a moving vehicle. It does a great job both indoors and outdoors otherwise, and we have used it many times to record school concerts and plays from the back of a darkened auditorium with wonderful results. The camera connects readily to a PC and pops up like any external storage device so you can copy photos on or off easily. Our major negative is that video recordings on the disk are not in a standard format so they can be copied directly onto other devices (like a PC) and played. They must first be imported via Panasonic's software and then saved off in a usable format. This was fine until our PC died. The new PC is Win 10 and won't load the old software, and the link on Panasonic's site to download software doesn't work. So now we can't share our videos. All would have been averted if the camera recorded MP4's like the advertising says it does. And then the review would have been a perfect 5!
