Panasonic HDC-SD1 Review

Digitaltrends
7 February 2007
  • Excerpt: This new Panasonic is part of a wave of high-definition camcorders making their significant presence known. Why do I say “significant”? Well, friends, it’s the start of new era in home video making as standard definition takes a back seat to high-def as HDTV goes totally mainstream. Who in their right mind wants to view lesser quality home videos when sparkling 1080i images are readily available at their fingertips?
  • 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
6 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. Yet, the compression format it uses introduces a different problem: an inability to edit footage in some applications.
  • Pros: Very small size. Relatively high-quality video.
  • Cons: Few manual controls. No pro audio inputs. Limited editing support in major video applications.

Panasonic HDC-SD1

Komputer for alle
1 October 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. Det er let at betjene de mest basale funktioner, og sjældent brugte funktioner er gemt af vejen. Skal du bruge mere avancerede funktioner, skal du ind i selve menuen. Der er nemlig et minimum af knapper på selve kameraet.
  • Pros: God billedkvalitet, Enkelt og godt design, Let at betjene, Surroundlyd
  • Cons: Prisen er lidt for høj

CNET
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
