Excerpt: For capturing events such as weddings, we'd recommend an HD camcorder such as the HDC-SD9. Even if you don't have an HD TV now, you probably will in the future. However, lots of video is shot purely for YouTube. Panasonic has designed its SDR-H80 camcorder specifically for this purpose and includes YouTube-friendly features. A small button activates the Web Mode. You get a 10-minute countdown to remind you of YouTube's maximum running time.
