(more info)
NOTE: This camcorder records in the VHS HQ format, however, this was played back on a regular VHS VCR, your results may vary.

Panasonic's Palmcorder line was one of the most common VHS-C camcorders. They were manufactured between 1990 (citation needed) and 2004. This Palmcorder is the PV-L550D, which was released in the year 2000 alongside the higher end PV-L650D. The PV-D300, PV-L750, and PV-L850 were also released in 2000, but they are not mentioned in the manual for the aforementioned two, so I don't know whether or not they have the same specifications.

The video quality is nothing to write home about, really. When compared to 2000 Hi8, it's *slightly* better, in my opinion.

The camcorder came equipped with a couple of interesting features like a video light, a digital image stabilizer, backlight compensation, and digital zoom.

Some differences between the 550D and the 650D include:
550D: 2.5" color LCD screen
650D: 4" color LCD screen
650D: comes with remote, 550D does

I must have maxed out the character length in the description, the 550D does not come with a remote.
