It's OK for amateurs but not for the people thinking about buying an HD camcorder

  • Summary: I bought this unit 3 days ago. To be fair, it is a great unit for the money at $249. I would let my teenage kids use this for their projects. The quality of the video is comparable to standard digital tape camcorders. Anyone craving for higher resolution camcorders should buy the HD ones. This unit claims to capture videos in mpeg-2 format but the extension of the files are in .mod (instead of mpg) which is also used by JVC camcorders.

  • Summary: Recently I order combo deal of the camcorder and Lenmar LIP07 Lithium-ion Camcorder Battery Equivelent to the Panasonic CGA-DU07 Battery. Yesterday I got the product and realized that the battery is not compatible with the camcorder. NExt week I am going on a trip and thought the spare battery would help me. Now in this situation, I have to settle with sinle battery .

So far so good

  • Summary: Purchased the Panasonic SDR-H40 about a month ago and have been pretty pleased with it so far. Filming indoors is pretty grainy as I would suspect most cameras in this price range will be. Turning all lights on and up when filming indoors helps though. Sound is OK, but good for basic use. I'm running it on a MSFT XP system and the software that comes with it - to pull the video files off the camera in a viewable format is clunky at best.

So...so...

  • Summary: My previous camcorders, VHS and 8 mm format, created crisper images than this one. That was very disappointing. Recording in poorly lit rooms produced poor images. There is no light source in this unit. Joystick operation is tricky, if your thumb is slightly larger. There are so many limitations, and "operations not guaranteed" warnings listed through out the manual, making you to wonder what good this camera is.

Good enough

  • Summary: We thought we needed a digital camcorder, but have ended up using our digital camera to take videos as the quality is far better, and you also only need one appliance. Stioll, is good value for money, and can take still pics.

  • Excerpt: Я им пользуюсь только в путешествиях – работает долго, забить винт нереально, хорош для съемки пейзажей, но в обычной жизни нет преимуществ в сравнении с фотиком пишущим видео.
  • Pros: 1. 40 кратное увеличение со стабилизатором 2. Хорошо снимает без яркого солнца 3. Аккумулятор работает больше часа 4. Запись аудио супер – при правильных настройках (улица и помещение отдельно настраивать нужно) 5. За год записи винт не заполнял ни разу
  • Cons: 1. При ярком солнце цветопередача убогая – цвета нереальны, ядовиты и гуляют как хотят, что то недоработано 2. Скидывать на комп можно только через спец программу 3. ПО неудобно и тупо 4. Слабый фотик – всего 640х480 5. Влагонезащищен

Uygun fiyata uzun süreli video kaydı

25 May 2009
  • Summary: SDR-H40, Panasonic’in amatör sınıfı HDD/SD hybrid video kameraları içerisinde yer alan bir video kamera. SDR-H60 ve SDR-H280’de olduğu gibi SDR-H40 da standart çözünürlüklü video kaydı yapıyor. SDR-H40'ın sahip olduğu 40 GB’lık sabit diske 36 saate kadar video kaydı mümkün. Ayrıca harici SD hafıza kartlarına da veri kaydı yapabilir. Video kalitesi çok yüksek olmasa da sahip olduğu 42x optik zoom ve diğer özellikler ile rakiplerin arasında kendisine alıcı buluyor.

Adiós a las cintas

santi65, Ciao

  • Summary: Se trata de una cámara barata (sobre 300€) de tamaño compacto y ligero, cómoda de transportar. Dispone de un sensor de imágenes de 800.000 pixels. La imagen de 4:3 es de 400.000 pixels y la de 16:9 de 370.000 pixels, es curioso que el formato panorámico tenga menos pixels. Esta es una video cámara de las llamadas "híbridas", es decir, puede grabar las secuencias tanto en su disco duro interno de 40Gb, como en una tarjeta SD (Soporta SDHC).
  • Pros: Estabilizador de imagen y precio
  • Cons: Software suministrado y conexión al PC
