  • Conclusion: Panasonic serves up a 60GB feast in a size zero shell. The manual ring keeps the features right at your fingertips, and Full HD video sparkles too.
  • Pros: Welcome to the future. Panasonic’s flagship HD camcorder offers cutting edge Full HD (1920x1080 resolution) footage so sharp you risk slicing your eyeballs on its ultra-precise colours. A massive 60GB hard drive soaks up over eight hours of full quality flicks, together with dozens of manual exposure modes and tweaks that let you stamp your mark on your movies. Sounds complicated? It could have been without the flexible Manual Ring that fronts the 12x Leica zoom and l...
  • Cons: Does anyone know what those ‘gaffers’ and ‘best boys’ you see on movie credits actually do? You’d better find out because this almost faultless pro-level camera is aching to be used on a real film set. If we do have to whinge, we’d like the photo flash a touch further from the focus ring and crisper low light movies, but honestly that’s only because we’re annoyed Tom Cruise got a bigger trailer than us.

The Panasonic HDC-HS100 is a compact high-definition camcorder with a 60GB hard drive.

  • Summary: If the images from Panasonic's HDC-HS100 equalled its great handling and usability, this model would be a clear winner. The HS100 provides the best controls we've seen in a small HD camcorder, but the images lag behind those of AVCHD camcorders such as the Sony Handycam HDR-SR12 and Canon HF10 camcorders — and those models offer decent usability, to boot.
  • Pros: Compact size, lots of manual controls, optical image stabiliser
  • Cons: Unwieldy joystick interface, sub-par image quality, too expensive for what it offers

  • Conclusion: Die Richtung stimmt. Mehr gut bedienbare manuelle Funktionen sind genau das, was man an aktuellen AVCHD-Camcodern am meisten vermisst. Und davon liefert Panasonic nun eine Menge. Mit der etwas unterdurchschnittlichen Schärfe der Kamera lässt sich leben, jedoch sollten die knalligen, intensiven Farben doch zumindest etwas regelbar sein. Und auch sonst gibt es noch die eine oder andere Kante an der HDC-HS100, die man gerne schöner gelöst sehen würde.

  • Conclusion: Die Richtung stimmt. Mehr gut bedienbare manuelle Funktionen sind genau das, was man an aktuellen AVCHD-Camcodern am meisten vermisst. Und davon liefert Panasonic nun eine Menge. Gerade beim Einstellen helfen Histogramm, Zebra, Luminanzanzeige sowie Expanded Focus wie bei kleiner anderen Kamera unter 1.000 Euro.
  • Pros: Objektiv-Ring mit vielen manuellen Funktionen
  • Cons: Durchschnittliche Schärfe, Menüstruktur und Menübedienung
