Does NOT have external mic input

The specifications page of the Best Buy website states that this camera has an external mic input. On the basis of that information, I purchased the camera. Sadly, the information is incorrect; the camera does not have an external mic input. So I need to return the camera to best buy. I finally wound up with a Canon HFR700, which really does have an external mic input (an essential feature for doing professional YouTube videos). It's worthwhile noting that all electronic products are going through their yearly model refresh just after the CES show in January, so these year end models are being discounted in price to clear them. For example, the HFR700 I purchased is being replaced with the HFR800 in 2 weeks. It's worthwhile doing a bit of research to see whether the new model has features you'd really rather have. If not, this is an excellent time to pick up quality electronics at significant savings.

Awesome camera

This camera is awesome. I really enjoy it on a daily basis. It is full HD which means it gives very sharp, bright, colourful, and clear picture. It records 1080p60 which is full HD. The quality of a picture is just unbelievable. I am not sure what others write and say about this camera being not good in low light but who cares about that. You don't buy this camera to shoot in low light. You buy this camera to shoot during a day, when it's bright and sunny outside. This is when you will see this camera's full potential as well as you will experience what the real HD is all about.

Not good for low light

This was my third Panasonic camera, and had the worst low light capabilities. I was expecting much more from Panasonic, it is unfortunate that older models had better low light than this one. Regular home lighting, video is just smeared, grainy, very bad colors....practically not usable on HD TV.

Not good for low light

this is my second HD Panasonic camcorder and low light recording is not even close to quality of 4 yrs old camcorder. Low light under regular home lighting is terrible, colors are washed out (no matter what WB select). Auto modes are not providing any good low light video, there is too much noise, loss of details.....simple, it is going back.
