Easy Camcorder
10 May 2007
  • Excerpt: On the runway this year, the Panasonic HDC-SD1 ($1299 MSRP) is turning heads. It’s small, sexy, and generates an appealing video image in bright light. The SD1 is also the first AVCHD camcorder to record directly onto bite-sized SDHC cards, and provides a pleasurable palette of automatic and manual...

Panasonic HDC-SD1 Review

7 February 2007
  • Conclusion: This camcorder is amazing. I’m not given to hyperbole but the HDC-SD1 is at the top of the pack for consumer camcorders circa early 2007. Given its size, design—and most important—the quality of its high-def video, anyone looking to be on home video’s razor edge, should check this baby out.
  • Pros: SD card-based; 1080i video featuring 3 CCDs and optical image stabilization
  • Cons: Expensive; HDMI cable is not included; no accessory shoe

HDC-SD1 review

Digital Arts
8 August 2007
  • Excerpt: We were sceptical about a camcorder that records high-definition video onto an SD Card. The Panasonic HDC-SD1, however, captures (and stores) video of exceptional quality for a sub-£1,000 model.
  • Pros: Very small size. Relatively high-quality video.
  • Cons: Few manual controls. No pro audio inputs. Limited editing support in major video applications.

Komputer for alle
3 November 2007
  • Summary: Panasonics nyeste HD-kamera er uden tvivl et af de bedste på markedet og en af vores favoritter. Det har nemlig næsten ingen svagheder. Det fylder ikke meget og er temmelig let. Alligevel har man et godt, solidt greb om kameraet.
  • Pros: God billedkvalitet, Enkelt og godt design, Let at betjene, Surroundlyd
  • Cons: Prisen er lidt for høj

HD-Camcorder nur für Frauenhände: Panasonic HDC-SD1

10 September 2007
  • Summary: Der Panasonic HDC-SD1 ist ein solider Camcorder auf SD-Basis. Bedauerlicherweise leidet er aber unter einigen Performanceproblemen und einem arg umständlichen Design.
  • Pros: hochwertige Video- und annehmbare Standbilder, gute Auswahl an manuellen Optionen
  • Cons: träger Autofokus, schlechter automatischer Weißabgleich, unkomfortables Design

3 August 2007
  • Conclusion: Die SD1 stellt unserer Meinung nach die beste AVCHD-Cam von Panansonic dar, die auch 2008 dank Weitwinkel und Lowlight-Eigenschaften konkurrenzfähig bleibt.
  • Pros: Akzeptabler Weitwinkel, Gute Lowlight-Eigenschaften
  • Cons: Kein FullHD, 3CCDs mit Pixelshift bringen nicht die volle Schärfe, Lüfter

Viel Bild auf kleiner Karte

16 May 2007
  • Summary: Der neue Camcorder von Panasonic könnte wegweisend sein: 90 Minuten hochaufgelöste Videobilder gespeichert auf einer gut daumennagelkleinen Chipkarte – wie ist die Qualität?
