    This book is totally SICK. I am a noob and as I was researching camcorder issues, I wish I would have had this book. I have only read through page 80 and have learned a ton about how the camera works. There is a lot of detailed info on how the cameras process as well as how to get the best out of them. I would buy it a hundred times.

    PS - I didn't help write the book and don't get paid either . Mine also came included with my HMC-40. AWESOME, AWESOME book very well written!!!

    Awesome book Barry! Just purchased the new HMC-80 from B&H. Low and behold, your newest update of the HMC book, which now includes the HMC-80 was in the bottom of the shipping box. As stated by you, this book doesn't take the place of the owners manual, but it sure is helping me make sense of all the different settings and the use of scene files, something totally new to me coming from VX-2100 DV tape territory. I'm a mid-level hobby videographer and feel I'm going to have a blast with this cam once I ramp up the learning curve.

    I think you will too. The HMC80 is really a great little camera at a steal of a price. I really grew to like it a lot when I had it for writing the book on it. Glad you're finding the book helpful!

    I own an HMC 150 and HMC 40 and didn't know about this book. I would have definitely gotten the HMC Book. But I just bought to AG AF 100 and got the AF 100 Book. It seems based on the similarity of cameras, I don't really need the HMC Book. Am I missing much or are there still lots of goodies that don't show up in the AF 100 Book?

    I was just given an HMC80 as a birthday presant (!) and was extremely pleased to see your book "The HMC Book" as part of the included items. I have to say that while Panasonic did a bangup job on the HMC80 (though I have some issues with it), the "User Manuals Vol 1 and Vol 2" that are included on the CD that ships with the cam do not go into the whys of most of the controls. For anyone that has an HMC40, 80, or 150 and is on the fence with the purchase of this book I recommend it highly. There is information in this book that you will NOT find anywhere in the Panasonic User Manuals. And I also have to thank Panasonic for including the book as part of the accessories that it comes with! Both the camcorder and the book are extraordinary, especially for the price. So if you have an HMC but don't have the book don't think about "is it worth the cost"... it is, so get it, it's one of the best investments you'll make towards your HMC.

    I just ordered the book. I have had 2 HMC40's for a year + but seldom use them. Working for a family ministry,
    I recorded teaching sessions which required little expertise.

    I recently went back to work for an industrial company as marketing manager and am about to shoot a major
    product/service video. I got the book with expectations to up my game in this venture. I just shot a talking head
    video of myself, read the manual and winged it as a noob. It came out ok, shock our company exec's with the
    concept of new mediums. I want this next video to blow them away.

    Thanks for making the book available.
