Just purchased for my daughter's 18th birthday and I have been mercilessly tracking prices for a good 3 to 4 weeks and this is the lowest it has been by far.

The silver and red versions are slightly higher in price.

Prices on Panasonic camcorders have remained relatively stable in the time I have been looking but have moved up and down a lot in the last few weeks on Amazon (already this one has gone up 10p from when I purchased first thing this morning!) who have been consistently turning in the lowest internet prices.

You can turn up slightly lower internet prices but these seem to be on obscure sites which when researched further are probably worth avoiding.


Good deal, but if you buy from a participating retailer shop on the high street, you can get either 10% cashback or 32GB SD card and 5 years warranty for free!!

see below site, that has it in for £350, so it is only £70 pounds more, a better deal with the extras added in

Saw those too but when you haven't got a store within a million miles of where you live this is the next best thing.
