This new Camcorder was discovered defective out of the original box. It has been repaired by a Panasonic service center.
The Panasonic VDR-M95 DVD Video Camera records high-quality digital video and still images onto removable 8cm DVD-RAM and DVD-R discs, producing moving and still images that can be played back thousands of times with virtually no degradation of picture quality. With this camcorder, you can enjoy all the benefits of the DVD format, including disc navigation and editing made simple. Access your favorite recorded scenes instantly, without searching, fast-forwarding or rewinding. The initial images of video scenes are indexed and displayed as thumbnails, making it fast and easy to search and preview material.
The VDR-M95 also features a 2.1 Megapixel CCD, lightning fast, 10-second start-up time, a 10x optical zoom lens, a hot shoe, a flash and a streamlined design that does not require plastic disc covers for DVD-R and DVD-RAM discs.
DVD Recording is Simple, Easy and Fun
The VDR series Camcorders record directly onto DVD-RAM or DVD-R discs for multiple recording and playback options. With DVD-RAM discs you never have to worry about erasing a recording or finding blank space. You can just start recording. DVD-RAM discs can also be played back in compatible devices, like select computers and home DVD-players. DVD-R discs are strong and versatile, and can also be played back on most home DVD players.
Expand video possibilities with a built-in slot for a SD (Secure Digital) Memory Card or MMC (Multimedia Card), in addition to the DVD disc. Easily capture still images and transfer them to your PC directly from the camcorder, using the USB 2.0 port.
Rotating 2.5" Diagonal Color LCD Monitor
Panasonic's LCD monitor provides excellent viewing clarity in full vibrant color. The 2.5" diagonal color LCD screen rotates up to 270-degrees for multiple viewing angles, providing sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback. Enjoy your finished recordings right away!
Get an extraordinarily Close Shot with 10x Optical Zoom and 240x Digital Zoom
The optical zoom acts like a telescope to produce close-up shots with extraordinary clarity. And, with variable zoom speeds, you can adjust how fast the camcorder lens moves from wide-angle to full telescope. In addition, the digital zoom ratio can be increased up to an extraordinary 240x. Now that's close up!
Digital Electronics Image Stabilizer (D-EIS) Helps Eliminate Blurred Images
Digital EIS compensates for hand and camcorder movement to stabilize your recordings, even while you're recording as a passenger from a moving vehicle or while walking. With Digital EIS, you will not have to worry about shaky soccer games or family outings.
Digital Still Images with the built-in 2.1 Megapixel Camera
The VDR-M95 has a built-in digital still camera which lets you capture natural lifelike still images directly onto a DVD disc or SD Memory Card. SD memory cards are about the size of a postage stamp that work as "digital film," letting you capture images and then transfer them to a compatible PC, TV, PDA, or other device equipped with an SD slot. It is an easy way to share your images with friends and family.
The VDR-M95 records high-quality stereo audio with the built-in microphone. A mic filter is built in to reduce wind noise, making objects easy to hear. Listen to 5.1-channel Dolby Digital sound on prerecorded DVDs.
Accessory Hot Shoe
Plug in a microphone, external light, or headphone to the VDR-M95's hot shoe and the camcorder will instantly supply the accessory with power.
A built-in flash maximizes the VDR-M95's digital still shooting capabilities
