Hi thanks for the great review. I am deciding between a new HD camcoder. 1st one I have every bought and am not a professional at all. I am looking at the Panasonic SD60 which gets 9/10 on your reviews and the SD600 which gets 8/10 on your reviews. Does this really mean that the SD60 is better than the SD600? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

I am so disappointed with this camcorder, so many glowing reviews but after having it for five weeks and digging into it's features i feel the detail levels are not real, by that i mean edge sharpening is being applied to give an illusion of sharp detail, unfortunately this edge sharpening which i will call edge enhancement adds some halo's around images whenever a dark object is in front of a white background.





Edge enhancement is the trick they used to use to make DVD movies seem sharper than they really were, the brain is fooled into believing there is fine detail present on smaller screens, i view at 104 inches using a full 1920x1080p projector and edge halo's tend to stick out like a sore thumb, i tried setting sharpness to -1 then all the way down to -5 but the edge enhancement is still there and at lower settings detail is poor with far too much softness.





I am just so very disappointed to have to write this review but edge sharpening is not real detail, it's false and it's also very ugly to view.





I wish i could get my money back but it's been five weeks now and thus i cannot return it,i also have to wonder if all camcorders claiming to be high definition within this price range are in fact edge enhanced, i hope the reviewer can re-visit the camcorder and look closely at this, if he did i believe the score would be lowered to 4/10 or less.
