Amazon.com Product Description

Flat-panel, big-screen luxury is yours with Panasonic's 42-inch VIERA series TH-42PX25U/P. This 1,024 x 768-pixel gas-plasma TV offers a 16:9 widescreen dimension, photo-viewing SD and PC Card slots, and an HDMI input for direct-digital connection with high-definition sources. Its ATSC tuner pulls HD signals (480p/1080i) right out of the airwaves, however, and its QAM tuner is fully compatible with unscrambled HDTV cable reception. A standard analog NTSC tuner receives standard-definition (SD) programming, and 2-tuner/split-screen picture-in-picture gives you unparalleled viewing convenience with scalable image sizes.

The set's authorized CableCARD ability means the set will also receive digital cable television systems services directly from the cable operator without requiring a bulky, external cable box.

The Benefits of HDTV
Standard TVs (SDTVs) display a maximum of 480 lines using the interlaced scan method, which creates a picture with alternating lines of information.
Enhanced-definition TVs (EDTVs) display a maximum of 480 lines using the progressive-scan method, which creates an image using consecutive lines of information for a crisp, flicker-free picture.
High-definition TVs (HDTVs) display a maximum of either 1,080 interlaced lines or 720 progressively scanned lines for the sharpest possible image.
With a plasma screen you get vivid colors like you've never seen before, extremely wide viewing angles (wider, even, than those of most LCD screens), and easy placement due to a plasma monitor's slim profile--the TH-42PX25U/P is a mere 5.5 inches deep, perfect for desk or wall mounting. Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed near lighting or sound systems.

The TH-42PX25U/P's contrast ratio is rated at an extraordinarily lifelike 3,000:1, and the TV is capable of producing over 1 billion colors. Picture-enhancing technologies include the Mach Band Effect Enhancer, a Gamma Enhancement System, and Panasonic's New Real Black Drive System.

The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) offers uncompressed digital data transmission between compatible devices, as between the TH-42PX25U/P and a DTV satellite receiver. Other connections include dual HD component-video inputs, 3 each composite- and S-video inputs, and front-panel A/V jacks for easy hookup with external devices, including an RGB PC input (15-pin mini D-Sub) offering up to 720p resolution. A set of composite-video-based A/V outputs simplifies hookup with an external A/V receiver and speaker system.

The TV's internal 2-way, biamplified stereo speakers are powered by 13 watts total per channel and use 5 separate drivers per speaker for extra richness and clarity. BBE ViVA HD3D surround processing creates authentic-sounding 3D effects from stereo speakers and exceptional sound-stage imaging, helping to ensure optimal clarity for centrally staged audio material such as dialogue. Artificial intelligence sound automatically adjusts the volume level on your TV to prevent wide variations in sound between different TV stations and types of programming.

Other features include V-Chip Program lockout, on/off sleep timers, a remote control, and closed-caption decoding.

2-0 out of 5 stars hung
great picture, but broken comes out of the box. only hdmi works, the rest of videos and components do not work. tv is going back to Panasonic for service.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great TV, and I wish there were more HDTV channels
After researching and looking at plasma, lcd, lcd projection tv's for couple of months, I finally bought this TV from amazon.com. Had it for couple of weeks now, and am amazed at the quality of the display. Got HDTV from comcast cable and the HDTV channels look and sound great. Of course I wish there were more HDTV channels. I recommend using the Monster DVI-HDMI cable. This TV has a HDMI port. I also recommend Samsung DVD player HD-931 that generates HD outputs via DVI for your DVDs. The resultant image quality is excellent, even though it is not "TRUE HD".

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible picture with a much-improved remote.
After a large amount of research, we finally bought this tv and are very happy about it. We don't yet actually have HD but the picture is still great...I can't imagine what it'll be like with HD.

The only problem on the previous model was that the remote was cheap-looking and made badly. This remote looks very nice, with a metal cover and many nice features.

Of course, the signal on regular tv is not top-notch, but that is true on every tv. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Spin your commercial CDs, your homemade music CDs of almost any stripe, or listen to the radio, TV, or weather-band transmissions with Sony's versatile, full-circle D-NS707F S2 Sports-styled Walkman portable CD player. Designed for rugged outdoor use, the player features active control playback operation so you can make changes to your program literally while you're on the run. Sony's "h.ear" clip-on headphones are designed for streamlined comfort.

Skip-Free G-Protection technology boosts the laser pickup's shock protection to minimize read errors that would otherwise interrupt your music, providing quick recovery from both horizontal and vertical shocks. The D-NS707F's water-resistant body and heat-resistant lid helps protect it against the elements, with rubber gaskets, bushings, and splash-resistant seals that help keep out water, moisture, and dirt.

Playback options include 32-track programming, repeat (track, disc, or program), random play, and--thanks to Sony's great work in DSP efficiency--more than 75 hours of ATRAC3plus CD or more than 50 hours of audio CD playback from 2 AA batteries (not included).

The D-NS707F's 2-line dot-matrix display is built right into its handstrap, offering full ID3 tag recognition, and bookmark playback (which lets you program your favorite songs from multiple CDs and play them back at the touch of a button). CD Text support displays artist and title information with compatible commercial audio CDs.

The player comes bundled with Sony's SonicStage CD Simple Burner software. Compatible with ID3 tagging and most CD burners, this application transfers songs from CDs or MP3 music files from your PC's hard drive and burns them to recordable CDs using ATRAC3plus compression.

ATRAC3plus is a high-quality audio-compression technology that reduces the size of digital audio files while preserving much of a track's original sound quality (similar in concept to MP3 or Dolby Digital sound formats). With ATRAC3plus, music can be burned and compressed at 132, 105, 66, 64, or even 48 kbps (kilobits per second), letting you select the right balance between fidelity and storage space (you'll get around 490 songs per disc at 48 kbps).

The D-NS707F delivers a whopping 51 station presets, which works out to 30 FM, 10 AM, 4 WB, and 7 TV stations so you're never far from your favorite channels. You can hook the player up with your home system through an optional analog stereo "Y" interconnect.

Digital Mega Bass Sound boosts your music's low end without high clarity and low distortion, and there's also a built-in equalizer with 3 preset curves and 1 customizable setting. Sony's automatic volume limiter system (AVLS) conserves batteries--and guards your hearing--by capping your listening level at either of two settings. The player also works with an optional AC/DC 4.5V power adapter (AC-E45HG or -E45A).

5-0 out of 5 stars Operates faultlessly
This player takes CDs, including CD-Rs and CD-RWs with 20+ hours of mp3 on them, in stride. It plays them through, and does fast forward and rewind about as well as my solid-state mp3 player. Utilizing CD-RWs, I use this unit instead of a juke box. I still use my solid-state mp3 player only because it is more compact than this unit. As I prefer having TV audio available, no other player/receiver would have entirely satisfied me. The impressive technical accomplishment of this product will cause me to favor Sony products in future.

The exterior design does leave things to be desired. The control buttons are cheesy and hard to operate. The display is too small. Instead of a carrying case or an anchor for a strap, there is a stupidly designed protruding flexible handle that makes the unit twice as bulky as it needs to be.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great for CD's, lousy with MP3's and ATRACS.
Pros:
1. Long battery life.
2. Decent sount (on CD's).
3. Easy to read display.

Cons:
1. Plays first quarter of an MP3 fine, then it starts scratching and eventually stops.
2. Plays first tenth of an ATRAC disk fine, then it starts scratching and eventually stops.
3. Takes about 5 - 10 minutes (not seconds!) to read a MP3 disc before playing.
4. Button placement makes it easier to use with your left hand rather than right.
5. You have to press a button rather hard and long to make the function work.

In other words, if you listen to the radio and CD's only - and are left handed, this is the perfect player for you! ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Panasonic's elegant, 20-inch TC-20LA2 LCD TV brings vivid picture quality to places where one could not normally fit a high-resolution TV, making it perfect for bedrooms, offices, or dorm rooms. At just 3.5 inches deep, the TC-20LA2 is easy to carry and position. Optimized for both television viewing and DVD/VHS tape playback, the TC-20LA2 has a standard 4:3 aspect ratio and features a slim, lightweight cabinet, a 181-channel NTSC tuner, high 500 cd/m2 brightness, and a 700:1 contrast ratio for exceptional picture clarity.The 640 x 480-pixel TC-20LA2 can display enhanced-definition TV (EDTV) programming in the 480p signal format (ATSC DTV receiver not included) and will also display 480p signals from a progressive-scan DVD player at full resolution. The unit also features stereo speakers with 6 watts per channel (x 2).

LCD screens offer a number of benefits over CRT monitors and televisions, including general ease of use, freedom from eye strain (no screen flickering or radiation emissions), quiet operation (no high-pitch "flyback" noise, an issue with CRT TVs), accurate image geometry (no curvature distortion or susceptibility to magnetic interference from, say, speakers), long screen life (with no risk of image burn-in), space savings, and light weight/easy positioning. They also tend to be cheaper and, to some eyes, slightly more natural looking than their plasma flat-panel counterparts, which usually "spec" higher (higher brightness, higher contrast ratio).

A 3D Y/C digital comb filter digitally separates the color information from the black and white portions of the signal, eliminating dot crawl and so-called hanging dots. Other enhancements include LCD AI (Artificial Intelligence), which continuously monitors signal conditions to maintain high picture contrast.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!
Excellent upconverting DVD player!I originally purchased the Toshiba SD-5970 with HDMI input to go with my new hdtv.That machine was horrible!You practically had to be right on top of the machine for the remote to work; even the buttons on the player itself had to be pushed very forcefully for them to register; the "upconverted" picture seemed no different than the standard progressive scan picture; it would freeze up.Finally, after about two weeks, it totally died and would not work at all. So, I returned it and ordered the Panasonic player from the internet.What a difference for only a modest increase in price!The remote works wonderfully, and the 1080i upconverted picture looks just beautiful.The color saturation is so much better than with just a progressive scan picture.I particularly noticed the difference when looking at closeups of women's faces.Natalie Wood in "This Property is Condemned," and Meg Ryan in "When Harry Met Sally" looked so beautiful in close up.I took the Natalie Wood dvd out and put it in my Sony DVD recorder/player hooked to the same tv for a comparison, and there was just no comparison.The colors were so much more brilliant with this Panasonic.

The Panasonic has some other really nice features, even if you're not interested in the upconverted picture.You can memorize where you left off on as many as five dvds that you take out of the player.When you put them back in, you'll be returned to the point where you stopped.There are different picture settings, with varying amounts of contrast, brightness, etc, or you can set all that manually.There are several different widescreen options, so you can zoom in to just the right size to fill your screen, depending on what aspect ratio the movie was originally shot in.You can hear sound when you fast forward at the slowest fast forwarding speed.This machine has other great features too, some of which were a bit over my head, such as different audio choices, and different color settings.

The instruction book was a bit confusing, as it didn't really explain what some of the more advanced settings were for;nor was it set up in a very user friendly manner.For example, it took me quite a while to figure out how to get the player to play with an upconverted signal.I finally figured out that you had to hit the "display" button on the remote, then go to "other settings" then "picture settings," or something like that.Once I figured it out though, I was really, really pleased with this DVD player's quality. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use
I just bought this camcorder and am not a good reader of manuals.I had it recording in a matter of minutes.You do have to format the mini dvds, but that is easy to find in the manual.The quality of the recording looked great on my computer screen.I bought office depot mini dvds and they worked fine, for the great price.This Panasonic is great and recording straight to mini dvds is a wonderful idea.I would have given it a 5 star rating, but the finalizing of the mini dvd took a while and you have to plug it in, you can't do this using the battery.Also I was warned, that if you use the dvd-ram instead of the dvd-r, they will not work on all players and they prefer to work on Panasonic equipment.This is why I opted for the non re-writable mini dvd-r from office depot.I also bought the PNY SD card from them and the card reader, all very affordable and easy to use. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Zoom sacrificed for great color
I just compared the GS65 and GS35 at my local electronics store. To my surprise, they were already in stock and on sale! The GS65 has significantly better color than the GS35 due to its 3CCD style. However, is the better color worth the sacrifice in the zoom range? That's a question you'll have to ask yourself. Not only do you loose some optical zoom in the telephoto range, the GS65 starts at a higher zoom than the GS35. Therefore, it also looses out in the wideangle range. By comparison, the lens on the GS65 is 2.45-24.5mm (35mm equivalent of 44.7-447mm) whereas the GS35 is 1.9-57.0mm (35mm equivalent of 35-1040mm). The extra optical tele and wider base focal length may just be enough for some users to outweight the color difference. Except for a headphone out and the features mentioned above, the two models are nearly identical. I was happily surprised at the ease of use and accuracy on the joystick thumb control. Although, the menu button was just out of reach for my thumb. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars affected all my other phones
I ordered this phone as an extension for my base unit. I registered it and it worked fine for one day. The next day, all my phones were echoing and the new handset faded in and out and nobody could hear me on the new handset. I had to return it and deregister it, but my phones still haven't returned to the previous normal state. At this point, I don't know what to do.

5-0 out of 5 stars NiMH Batteries Available for This Model
Like other reviews, I will complain that the battery life with the standard NiCad battery is not good, and the battery eventually fails prematurely. However, there are NiMh batteries with much better life and excellent performance available. I bought some energizer model no. ER-P511 and they work just great. They are drop-in replacements for the Panasonic handsets.

It is a great phone with all those features. I alway enjoy the speaker phone on my cordless phone but of late, the battery life has gone down and now I have to keep it on the charger for all the time to make even couple of calls.

Is there a supliment battery that we can buy??

..updated on 06/29/04
Well just added another battery, you can buy it in Radio Shack or even online Panasonic.Com for $11 and my phone is back to normal. And as someone said correctly, I have been regularly using my phone with booster on. May be that was the reason. But if I lose this battery quickly then I will post it here but other wise I am giving 5 of 5 to this phone. Because battery is very very important thing and with the new batttery working excellent, charging quickly in 2 hrs, I changed my rating from 3 to 5.

1-0 out of 5 stars Caller ID contrast fails
I bought a base unit and 3 extra handsets in Nov. 2003 for my home based business. Within a couple of months I had a problem with the caller ID contrast fading out on one handset whenever I tried to get it to display a previous call or on an incoming call. I shipped it back and Panasonic replaced it with a remanufactured one. In May 2004, 6 months after purchase, I had the same problem with another of the original handsets. I sent it back asking them to FIX it, NOT replace it, and to tell me exactly what the problem is, because I am now concerned that their product is unreliable and dont want to find this recurring with the other 2 handsets.

They replaced it with a remanufactured unit with no explanation of the problem. I called the Texas facility that shipped it to me, and they said they have no way of knowing what the problem was, they just receive and ship out units. I called the customer service number and they claimed it couldnt be a design or quality control defect or all four would have gone by now, and they also pointed out that the rest of the features were still working, both statements which I find to be ridiculous.

Any company manufacturing a complex product can have a design flaw or QC problem. I dont fault them for that. It's refusing to own up to the problem and making it right that burns me up. In my opinion, Panasonic should have recalled this model and replaced it with one that works, or else refunded customers full purchase price. This was a lot of money for me to invest in telephones, more than I've ever spent. As a result of this experience I will never buy another Panasonic product of any kind, ever again. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Introducing Panasonic's first dual-deck DVD-Video recorder/VHS recorder, which enables you to easily dub home movies and recorded VHS tapes onto eitherDVD-RAM or DVD-R discs, and from DVD discs back to a VHS tape. It also plays back music burned to CD-R/RW discs as well as MP3 digital audio.

The DVD side of the DMR-E75V features progressive-scan video playback and great sound thanks to the Dolby Digital and DTS output. The unit also offers twin NTSC TV tuners, enabling you to record two channels at the same time (one on DVD and one on the VHS VCR). Other features include variable data rate settings, a front A/V input, and composite-, component-, and S-video connections on the back.

With Chasing Playback, an element of the Time Slip feature, you can watch a program currently being recorded from any point that's already been recorded--while continuing to record the program in process. Simultaneous Recording and Playback, the second element of the Time Slip feature, lets you record a program onto a disc while you're watching any other program that's previously been recorded on the same disc.

Tech Talk

  • DVD-RAM: DVD-RAM discs can be rewritten up to an incredible 100,000 times, whereas DVD-R discs are write-once. They come in double-sided (9.4 GB capacity) and single-sided (4.7GB) varieties in both cartridge (provides additional protection) and noncartridge types. DVD-RAM discs can be played back on DVD-RAM-compatible DVD home players and portable players.
  • Progressive scan: Progressive scanning, otherwise known as 480p ("p" for "progressive"), creates a picture signal with double the scan lines of a conventional interlaced picture, 480i ("i" for "interlaced"), to create a noticeably sharper image. Standard DVD players use interlaced scanning to produce a picture. Interlaced scanning combines two fields to generate a picture of 525 scan lines (480 of which are displayed). Your television projects an interlaced image by first scanning the 240 odd-numbered lines of one field (in 1/60th of a second), followed by the 240 even-numbered lines of the other field (in 1/60th of a second). A progressive video processor enables all 525 lines (480 of which are displayed) to be scanned at the exact same time. A television with 480p component inputs completely scans the entire image in 1/60th of a second, so it only takes one field to build one frame of video.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product and Price
Purchased this unit to copy home movies from beta and VHS tapes to DVD, it was very easy, just push 3 buttons and the machine starts copying. If you want to copy only parts of a tape then just press pause for the DVD. It does work with TDK DVD-R disks.
It comes with instructions on a disk, load this disc first and go through each chapter, even if you think you know it.

So far after 2 weeks am very pleased with this dvd\vcr recorder

3-0 out of 5 stars a so so recorder
- got mine thru buydig.com, $367 total, free shipping, took only 2 days to get to CA from NJ. very good buying experience. the unit I received is brand new.
- the documentation is horrible in terms of organizing the information. just had to dive in and learn by trials and errors. Seemed like a lot of nifty features (e.g., chasing playback) are only available when recording media is dvd-ram. this sucks since dvd-ram is not supported widely as dvd-r.
- easy one-touch-transfer from vhs to dvd. however recording via this procedure created a lot and I mean a lot of titles. I think it created one title for each pauses & stops signals that were on the camcorder which were later got transfered to the vhs tape. During the playback of this recorded dvd, there are annoying repeats of video and audio in between transition of the titles which last about half a second. I called Panasonic tech support and was confirmed that this unit didn't have the "seamless play" feature which would have eliminated these "hiccups".
- I used the external line 2 (located in front of the unit) to connect my hi-8 camcorder and transferred my home movies to the dvd-r disks. With this method, only 1 title was created. Can't create chapters out of it unless the used media is dvd-ram (was also told by the Panasonic tech support). One dirty fix is to stop the recording whenever I want to create a new tittle out of the whole tape, so if my 2 hours Hi-8 tape transfer was stopped and re-recorded for 8 times at the time of my choosing then I would have 8 titles to edit such as creating names/labels for the title thumbnails) instead of a single title.
- used dvd-r 2x (comp usa brand) - seems to work ok. However when I attempted to use a 4x dvd-r Platinum brand, the unit went into the self check mode, shut itself off and on after recording only for about 30 seconds. Not sure if this is a problem with this particular brand of dvd media or the 4x media in general. the documentation says it supports up to 4x media.
- has only S-video and regular RCA inputs, no firewire or usb for mini-dv camcorder transfers.
- the built-in tuners can only go up to 125 channels so using its remote control to tune digital cable channels (up to 1000 channels) is not optimal.
- playing back the recorded dvd-r disk on my dvd-rom drive in my computer is a problem. None of the disk can be read. However I can view them on my other stand alone dvd players (go-video, circuit city's AMW brand). I exteneded the recording time on 1 dvd-r to record more than 3 hours of video. the result is pretty grainy, bad. and the stand alone dvd players can't read it at all, except for the unit that burned it.

- Not sure if other stand alone dvd burners are any better but if I had to make my purchase over again, I wouldn't choose this unit for its lack of features on dvd-r media and limited playback supports of other dvd formats (dvd+r, dvd +/-rw, etc.)
- I would rate this unit 3 out of 5 base on my expectation and personal experience with it.

4-0 out of 5 stars SOME BRIEF OBSERVATIONS:
1) Contrary to what the reviewer states, the unit does not contain twin tuners (at least not the one I got). You can only record one channel at a time (either on the VHS or DVD side).
However, you can record on one while playing on the other.

2) The unit does not have a RF Modulator - so you cannot connect it to your TV's antenna terminal, only via the direct input jacks (assuming your TV has them).
Panasonic does this with all their DVD Recorders. (Really chinchy of them.)

3) Be forewarned - you cannot make copies of your store bought VHS and DVD movies that are copy protected (Macro Vision).
Also, there is no audio volume control that would allow you to compensate for tapes that are too loud or too low.

4) The new EP speed of 8 hours is backward compatible on older 6 hour machines. The quality is about the same as the 6 hour so you are effectively getting 1/3 rd more on the same DVD-RAM disc.

All in all a pretty good machine, assuming you understand its complexities. The manual is quite elaborate and may at times be hard to follow. The remote is quite good and preset to Control Setting #1. It and the machine can be changed to #2 or #3 if you have other Panasonic DVD Recorders and wish to avoid a conflict.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great
No idea what the guy from Bethesda was talking about. I've had this for about three weeks now and it works great. No problems at all. This is just like using a VCR but you can record more stuff and/or at higher quality. Be sure to get good blank DVDs, though, as that makes a difference in quality and storage shelf life. If you don't need the VCR go with the Panasonic models without VCR and you can save some money. (Although, good VCRs are hard to find these days, so if you have lots of VHS tapes this one is perfect.)

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best of All Worlds
This unit worked great right out of the box. DVD-RAM technology is awesome!! One-touch dubbing between DVD-R or DVD-RAM and VHS tapes is simple enough for anyone to use. This is superior technology and this player is unique in offering both VHS and DVD-RAM capabilities.

Direct Navigator lets you record shows or tapes on DVD-RAM and, amazingly, creates thumbnail pix for each chapter, just like the DVD's from Hollywood!! You can then easily select the program you want to see, based on the scene shown in the thumbnail. RAM technology even lets you edit and rearrange scenes.

You can instantly access anything on the disk in seconds, and watch one show on a RAM disk while you simultaneously record another program on the same disk, and "time-slip" live programming to rewind seconds or minutes earlier with DVR functionality.

VHS functions are equally sophisticated with index search and a linear version of Direct Access to electronically label and keep track of your VHS recordings, as well. It even has a new VP mode that records 10 hours on a 6 hour EP tape.

I have owned Panasonic VHS players for years and plan to buy Panasonic DVD players that are fully compatible with DVD-RAM in the future. I plan to use its more universal DVD-R functions to dub and archive family VHS tapes that anyone in my family can use on any DVD payer.

All-in-all a very well thought out machine. Highly recommended! ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Larger than most portable disc players but still far more portable than a laptop, Panasonic's DVD-LX8 DVD player offers a 9-inch, 16:9 aspect-ratio (wide) screen whose adjustable "Mono Arm" broadens the range of available viewing angles, making the player perfect for suddenly bright and suddenly dark airplane cabins or desktop use in an office. The player handles DVD-Video, high-resolution DVD-Audio, DVD-R, and DVD-RAM playback--as well as standard and recordable audio CDs, including MP3- and WMA-encoded discs. Its slender chassis holds a built-in rechargeable battery good for about 2.5 hours between charges.

Designed to take full advantage of both audio and traditional video DVD formats, the DVD-LX8 delivers super high-fidelity (192 kHz/24-bit) sound of DVD-Audio. DVD-Audio software titles offer classic music titles in both multichannel and stereo, though be aware that this model plays discs in stereo only. Most DVD-A discs have compressed Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1 surround tracks, however; these can be passed through the unit's digital-audio output to a compatible surround receiver and speaker system.

Audio features also include DTS and Dolby Digital 2-channel decoding and multichannel passthrough, built-in stereo speakers, and Panasonic's Dialogue Enhancer for DVD movie viewing. Advanced Surround Sound (VSS) simulates surround effects from any two speakers or from headphones.

Cinema Mode reduces the detrimental effects of screen glare from ambient light, rendering cinematic colors in pictures that are gentle on the eyes. Further, Cinema Mode improves the visibility of details in dark scenes by automatically adjusting picture contrast. High-speed, five-step Smooth Motion Scan provides crystal-clear forward and reverse scan. At the highest setting, the unit scans at an incredible 200 times normal speed. Panasonic's Dialog Enhancer boosts the center channel volume--where most of the principal dialogue emanates when playing a Dolby Digital 5.1 disc--by 6 dB.

This player is HighMAT compatible. High-Performance Media Access Technology is a standard codeveloped by Panasonic and Microsoft to improve interoperability for digital media programming between PCs and electronics devices. HighMAT provides an efficient method for arranging digital photo, music, and video collections on recordable media.

4-0 out of 5 stars nice player
I like the picture quality and the sound is great. You may only get a 2.5 hour battery with the player but the option to buy an 8 hour battery is very nice since no other player offers that.

4-0 out of 5 stars GREAT PLAYER, VERY PRICEY AND MISSING SOME FEATURES
Alright, I had this thing for about 2 weeks when I returned it. The picture is awesome, very clear and the sound from the little speakers is superb. I bought it in a retail store for $699. Very expensive. The battery may last 2.5 hours but not with the brightness turned up. My biggest complaint is that it DOES NOT have an AUX imput feature. For that much $ I wanted a little monitor that I could plug whatever I wanted into. You cant with this one, you can only use it as a disc player. Also it does not have the card slot. The best things are the flip flop screen that is nice but not necessary and the fact that it does have progressive scan (or so the box states). Its a great player but the high price tag along with the missing AUX made me pass on it. I think I will get the DVD-LA95 from Panasonic, a price drop has made it a good buy.

4-0 out of 5 stars GREAT PICTURE AND SOUND
I was debating b/w sony and panasonic before I bought the LX8. This little player is far from little. It offers great sound and a sharp crisp picture. It is great for travelling. The only draw back is the 2.5 hour charge time. ... Read more

Product Description

Panasonic's new DMC-FZ5 Lumix digital still camera with 12x optical zoom and MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) offers 5.0-megapixel resolution and incorporates a newly developed 12x optical zoom equivalent to 36mm to 432mm on a 35mm film camera lens. The remarkable 12x optical zoom combined with 4x digital zoom magnifies images by as much as 48x, enabling users to capture images of subjects at longer distances. The DMC-FZ5 features a high-performance Leica DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens. 12x Optical Zoom and a Brightness of F2.8 to 3.3 - The LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens is a small, lightweight lens that packs the same zoom power as a big, clunky 400mm-class film camera lens. This 12x optical zoom lens is super-bright too, at F2.8 to 3.3 with a focal length of 6 to 72mm (equivalent to 36mm to 432mm in a 35mm film camera). You've got all the power and flexibility you need to take exquisitely beautiful shots all the way from telephoto to wide angle and macro. The DMC-FZ5 also has a 4x digital zoom. Use it together with the 12x optical zoom and you've got ultra-powerful 48x zooming - roughly equivalent to a huge 1680mm lens on a 35mm camera. Panasonic's MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer Helps Eliminate Blurry Pictures - Jitter from shaky hands is one of the main reasons why cameras produce blurry images. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Pansonic Got It Right!
This camera has far exceeded my expectations. I am one of those geeks that research everything on the market before making a purchase. There are plenty of cameras that looked like they would meet my needs, but as I researched and tested, too many had glaring flaws or fell short on critical features.

I'm not going to waste your time and mine repeating all the details of every feature from the earlier reviewers. They did a great job of listing its strengths and weaknesses. Instead, I will waste our time sharing my personal impressions on the use and results of this fine camera.

The image stabilizer is like magic. I have been able to take indoor, hand held shots that would have been impossible with an un-stabilized camera. I cannot overstate the value of this feature. In well lit pictures the stabilization makes for a crispness I haven't seen in a point and shoot type camera (perhaps the massive Leica lens may have had something to do with this too). The flash has impressed me as well. It seems to meter very well compared to my Cannon A70. No more flash blown out shots on close up groups. Rarely did it get it wrong.

I spent yesterday at the Point Defiance Zoo in Seattle, running the FZ5 through its paces. The resulting pictures blew me away. I couldn't wipe the smile off my face looking at the pics on my computer afterwards. I'm no pro, but some of the pics were. It was a bit humorous to hear comments all day long by other Point and Shoot photographers "I wish I had more zoom", all the while I am taking crisp 12x close-ups of all the fuzzy critters in cages.

Also, I like a camera that looks and handles like a camera, not some kind of Star Trek shuttle craft with a lens on the front. The Minoltas look goofy and handle goofy. Scotty, beam me up.

Is it perfect? Nope, but so close I'm still smirking with smug satisfaction. After the zoo trip, I would like a manual focus option. There were times that glass or chain link fence made focusing a chore. Would I trade for a bigger, heavier camera that had manual focusing? Not for my uses. You can keep your bloated and clunky DSLRs. This camera carries like a Point and Shoot, but functions like a much bigger beast. Toting it around was barely noticeable (that is a key feature for me). This is a camera that you can carry easily and it excels at 95% of any use I may deem for it. The size is perfect. A gargantuan 12x stabilized lens on a camera this small is unreal (somebody pinch me).

Of course, please upgrade the included SD card. I get annoyed when reviews gripe about the small included memory cards in today's cameras. I don't want the camera company deciding for me which high capacity card to use (and jacking up the price of the camera). I say put in a tiny inexpensive card to allow camera testing, then let the end user pick their favorite card. This camera is already speed demon compared to my Canon A70. Imagine my surprise after plugging in a SanDisk Ultra II card and watching the write speeds cut in half. It was dramatic. Get a fast 10mb SD card and snap pictures at will.

As far as the review by "jjmmdd" I have to say "Either you don't know how to hold a camera still, or the camera is defective" If it is the former, spend more time on your technique. If it is the latter, then for heaven sakes, get the camera fixed or replaced. Across the board Panasonic puts out some of the most consistently reliable consumer products available. "jjmmdd", you were so very right. Every positive review written for Panasonic products is written by a Panasonic employee. Dude, put on your aluminum foil hat, check yourself for alien implants, and "buy a vowel".

Regarding the review by "D. Rosenfeld", as far as I am concerned, any "movie mode" in a "still camera" is a defect, not a feature. If you need a video camera, buy a video camera. Anyone buying a still camera for its video features is looped. It is consumers like you that make me fear the camera companies will start putting cell phones in digital cameras. D'oh! Oh another thing "D".... The stabilizer "ROCKS!!!"

It has been a while since I purchased a toy that lived up to my expectations after I lived with it for a while. The Panasonic FZ5 did just that. I'm now dreaming of this same camera with manual focus and a magnesium chassis......mmmmmm, magnesium. Wake up man!!!In the category of "Stellar, Point, and Shoot, Mega-Zoom, Cameras" This baby is getting all 5 stars from me.

(Subliminal message to follow)

Panasonic, please release the DMC-FX8 in the US market..... Panasonic, please release the DMC-FX8 in the US market..... Panasonic, please release the DMC-FX8 in the US market.....

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera
Okay, maybe I'm not qualified to give it a 5 star rating since this is the first digital camera I've owned, but I've been very happy with this camera and it's performance.I've been a traditional SLR user for about 10 years, and while this camera doesn't have the full range of control of an SLR, it seems to be the best for the price if you want some manual controls and a great zoom compared to it's competitors in the same price range.I'm stopping here, the other reviews already give a lot of detail about the camera.

4-0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect
This review should really be 4.7 stars. The only 'flaws' I have found are the absence of manual focusing (if you need that, get the Panasonic FZ20) and spot focus being potentially aimed outside of the little focus box (test where yours is).

I knew about the lack of manual focus going in, and weighed against the larger (3/4 inch wider, 1/2 inch taller, and 1 inch deeper), more expensive 20 oz. FZ20, the smaller 11 oz. FZ5 wins easily.I already own the FZ10 which is very similar to its replacement the FZ20, and its sheer size and weight prevented carrying it regularly.Its bulk is the reason I replaced it.

I'm not certain yet if my spot focus is aimed correctly, but others have had problems, and a few of my pictures have been out of focus.Many of those seem due to hand shake with a slow shutter speed.When zoomed even image stabilization/antishake technology won't compensate for slow shutter speeds - use the flash or a higher ISO.

You have the flexibility to do that because other than manual focus, you have endless options.At least 4 ISOs, shutter priority mode, aperture priority mode, manual mode, and a variety of pre-programmed shot settings if you don't want to mess with the details.Fireworks, party, night landscape, night protrait, sports, macro and on, it's all there.The exposure system is the most accurate I've seen in not over-exposing and losing white tones and highlights.The white balance is actually accurate enough that you may need to adjust it, although 'auto' does pretty well.Focusing can be whole screen, spot, high-speed spot, etc.It also has two image stabilization modes, one that gives you the greatest accuracy stabilizing, another that makes focusing easier.

An often ignored consideration in picking a camera is whether it has a focus assist light.Inside, especially at night under incandescent light, many cameras may have trouble getting enough light to focus correctly.You won't notice this in a well-lit store or outside, but when you need a picture of a birthday party or other event, half your shots will be out of focus.This has the light.I believe only Canons also have this feature consistently.

If you've made it to this camera, you are probably already aware of the benefits of an extended zoom.It's wonderful to be in total control and able to get as close as you want to your subject.Since I'm unable to hand-hold even at 6x zoom, image stabilization is vital in an ultrazoom model.

There are cameras available with more megapixels. While more pixels may give you the ability to capture more detail, that must be weighed against the file sizes created by more megapixels.You'd need extra or larger memory cards to hold those files, or compress them and lose resolution in order to fit in a smaller size.If you're only printing 4x6s or even 5x7s, it's too small to see that detail.Most web images are less than 1 MP, and a standard 1024x768 screen is also less than 1MP.If you are sending images by email, larger images and files only making it harder to send those to people with dial-up.Don't buy a camera on megapixels alone - it may be more trouble than it's worth.

Other than the FZ20, only the Konica Minolta Dimage Z5 is comparable to this model.The Dimage is heavier and larger, making the Panasonic the best option for me so that I carry it as often as possible and get the most from my investment.Other than hard-core photography afficionados who need the manual focus (or a hot shoe which this also lacks), I doubt anyone would be disappointed.

3-0 out of 5 stars Panasonic DMC-FZ5

I just bought one and am very disappointed to find that a user can not change the degree of zooming when in movie mode; in other words, once you select a focus that includes a certain amount of telephoto zoom, you are stuck at that zoom level till you stop the movie and start a new movie. BUMMER!

Secondly, even though everyone raves about the image stabilizer, I have to say that my old Sony Mavica MVC-FD91 had/has a far superior stabilizer.

The new Canon S2 may be the way to go.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nicely done Panasonic
I have been very pleased so far with the DMC-FZ5.I have been taking very sharp pictures indoors and outdoors with the Lumix.The LCD is very readable (might not be as easy in full sunlight), and I was able to figure out most menu items without the instructions.

Image stabilization works wonders on this long zoom camera.I took a 12X zoom picture outside in a 25 mph wind, and the result was outstanding.The wind was shaking me all over, but the pic came out as crisp as can be, thanks to the image stabilization.

To Ann I say that the DMC-F5Z may be kind of big by your standards, but I would have to say this Lumix is a very compact camera, even compared to my Canon G2, which is no monster by any stretch.

To Jimmy, I am certainly not a Panasonic employee, but I can't give this camera a poor review.If 75% of your shots are blurry with the Lumix, then either your camera is defective, or the operator is defective!Is it possible to take a blurry picture with this camera?Yes, but it's pretty hard, especially with Image Stabilization turned on.

For mid-priced long zoom cameras, the Lumix DMC-FZ5 has to be at or near the top of its class, at least for right now.For those who can wait, you might want to compare this camera to the Canon 2S IS, which is coming in June. ... Read more

Featuring a 5-megapixel CCD sensor, the DMC-FX7 delivers a wide range of detail and color with images up to 2560 x 1920 pixels--enough information to make photo-quality prints up to 13 by 17 inches. Leica DC Vario-Elmarit 3x zoom lens, with 3 aspheric elements, combines comfortably small size with superb image rendering. By combining with a 4x digital zoom, users will have an equivalence of a 12x zoom lens in a very compact body, though users should note that digital zoom degrades picture quality.

Movie Mode
The DMC-FX7 lets you shoot QuickTime Motion JPEG video at resolutions up to 320 x 240 pixels with sound. The amount of video you can capture is limited by space on the memory card; you'll fit more at low quality (10 frames-per-second) than at high quality (30 frames-per-second). The movies aren't camcorder quality, but they're fun and convenient, and they're perfect as e-mail attachments. You can also record audio comments, up to five seconds in length, for your still pictures.

More Features

  • Flip Animation: Allows you to create your own frame-by-frame animations.
  • Unlimited Consecutive Shooting: Allows consecutive shooting up to the capacity of the SD memory card.
  • 2.5-inch diagonal polycrystalline TFT LCD display (114k pixels)
  • Mega Burst Shooting Mode: Shoot up to seven images at three or two frames-per-second in standard resolution, or up to four images in fine resolution. This option is designed to provide you with the best selection of photos during action, such as a sporting event.

Storage and Transfer
Images and video are stored on Secure Digital (SD) memory cards. A 16 MB SD card is included. Files can be downloaded to either a Mac or PC via USB connectivity, which means it can be connected to any USB-based Windows 98/Me/2000/XP and Mac OS 8.6 or later computer without installing any software.

Printing
This camera supports the PictBridge standard. PictBridge is a technology that lets you transfer pictures from a digital camera to a compatible printer, without a PC or image-editing software. Because PictBridge is an industry standard, users can connect PictBridge-compatible devices made by many different manufacturers. Learn more about PictBridge.

Power and Size
The camera is powered by lithium-ion battery pack (included with charger). It measures 1.97 by 3.70 by 0.95 inches and weighs 0.30 pounds.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great!
This phone if GrEaT!!! it comes with plenty of features such as transfering the call to another handset. However, you can hear some staticky noise in the background while your on the phone with someone else. The range isn't that great either. If i go in my backyard, the tone starts to skip. Overall, this phone is full of features that are very useful. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Whether you're after portability or simply a stereo system with a small footprint, Panasonic's RX-D29 CD/radio/cassette boombox is a worthy candidate. The system pumps 6 watts per channel through a pair of 2-way speakers, ,each of which uses a 3-inch woofer and a .5-inch tweeter. Enjoy your favorite tunes without interruption--you can play a CD at random, in a specified order, or repeat one song or the whole disc.

You can play your homemade MP3 music compilations, too. This unit is compatible with multi-session MP3 discs, but if there are a lot of sessions it will take more time for playback to commence. Albums and tracks will play in alphanumeric order, so number your files and folders to ensure a desired playback sequence. The boombox does not support MP3 song and album title display. If a CD-ROM-format CD contains MP3 and files other than MP3, only the MP3 files will be playable.

CD synchro start helps you record custom music mixes on cassette, and auto-scan tuning sets your presets for you (12 FM, 12 AM) when you power up for the first time. The unit even comes with a handy remote control to simplify operation from the comfort of your favorite listening position (remote requires 2 AA batteries, not included).

Full auto stop conserves batteries and cassette wear by shutting down when a tape reaches its end (or beginning, if you've just rewound), while CD cue and review controls help you zero in on just the section you're looking for.

Choose from 4 preset equalizer settings to tailor the sound to your preference (XBS bass boost, vocal, clear, or soft). A Sound Virtualizer circuit simulates surround sound from the boombox's 2 speakers. For MP3 listening, Panasonic's special Re-Master circuit reproduces the treble lost during MP3 compression, enabling reproduction close to the original.

The RX-D29 runs on either AC power (cord included) or 6 C-cell batteries (not included). Power backup using 3 AA batteries (not included) saves the current time, timer settings, and radio stations that you have set. If memory batteries are not used, memory items are erased if the unit loses power.

What's in the Box
Boombox, remote control, AC power cord, and a user's manual. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Got what I was looking for!
I was looking for a Boombox with the following features
- Should play mp3 files,
- Must have tape deck and
- Must have a remote
This was the only boombox that met all those criteria. It recognized my mp3 files without any problems. Sound is pretty decent. I give 4 stars instead of 5, because it did not sound as good as some of the similar sized Sony boomboxes. Overall I am very satisfied. ... Read more
