Well danny,

that cam is an analog. well, as long as there are full size VHS VCR's there is going to be full sized VHS camcorders as well. The convenience of dealing with only one tape format is undeniable. Not having to convert the tape out of the camcorder and into your VCR, without wires or adaptors or losing quality can seem more important to some people, than the overall size of the unit. By utilizing the optional professional wide-angle lens you can cover all the bases. This unit is straightforward and easy to operate and the results are top notch too! A full-size VHS camcorder, the AG-196U is ideal for those just getting started in video, as well as for educational and institutional applications. It offers a 14: 1 two-speed power zoom lens, low-light capability, Audio/Video fade, has advanced recording and playback functions as well as digital effects to meet almost any application. Extremely sensitive 1/3" CCD with 420, 000 pixels provides outstanding picture quality, even under low-light conditions.


you'd feel like a professional with this cam.

cheers

This camera is making a sound when recording and also the lens has devloped some fuzz inside. Please let me know where they can service and clean lens out. Also I need an to purchase a new battery. Thank...


the sound you refer to during recording on the ag-456up is probably bad bearings on the video head. unfortunately, this part is no longer available. any good electronic repair shop should be able to clean the lens. a new battery should be available from wal-mart, circuit city, best buy, etc.

Audio is not recorded at all!! Please help


I had the same problem but lucky for me my camera was still under warranty. After sending it for repairs and to my amazement, panasonic replaced my LCD and LENS (what?) and it worked fine. They did mention about a manual reset. Not the button thing you press. I was bewildered but happy the audio levels are working. But soon after then, I found out I couldn't capture my old tapes that i previously recorded!

Not much help,

yes. clan it now because particles that come off the magnetic tape or videotape can build up on the record/playback heads, reducing the signal quality.

hope this helps

Waht's 'unlimited consecutive shooting'?


This functionality allows unlimited consecutive shooting up to the capacity of the SD Memory Card in the camera—ideal for capturing fast-moving objects in high resolution. The number of shots may vary depending on memory card size, picture size, and compression.
