  • Summary: I've had this camera for just under a year and have enjoyed it very much. Like other reviewers have mentioned, finding editing software for the AVCHD format used is a challenge. I use Adobe Premiere CS3 for editing but have to first convert any footage using Nero or other software. The camera is lightweight easy to use and has many great presets as well as offering great image quality.

Panasonic HDC-SD1 High Definition camera

Vincyman "Vincyman", Amazon
25 December 2007
  • Summary: I have used the Panasonic HDC-SD1 camera for over a month now and I am quite happy with the quality and sound of the videos. The camera performed flawlessly, however the battery barely lasted half an hour and there are no extended-time batteries available for sale. To do any serious taping outdoors away from an electric outlet, I would need a few extra batteries and they are not cheap.

So far so good

K. Smith, Amazon
10 December 2007
  • Summary: I have had my SD1 for about a week. I haven't tested it fully, but here are my first impressions: 1. Looks AWESOME when attached HDMI to my 50" plasma!!! 2. Auto iris tends to gain up in low light (which is what it is supposed to do)- introducing noise in the video - adjusting the gain manually is pretty easy 3. My one year old HP ZD8000 laptop does NOT support included 4GB SDHC card in the card reader slot. I have to connect the camera via USB cable.

Very good with flaws

Joshua S. Rose "j rosey", Amazon
1 November 2007
  • Summary: This camcorder takes very good quality videos. I have been impressed with the resolution and colors. There are three main drawbacks to the SD-1, as I see it: 1) ergonomics. The camera does not comfortably sit straight in the hand, but rather, rolls over to a slightly tilted position unless you apply some pressure from your wrist and/or fingers to hold it upright. This can get quite annoying.
