Panasonic SDR-SW20 Waterproof SD Camcorder w/ 10x Zoom

Personal Electronics buzz
11 August 2009
  • Excerpt: The Panasonic SDR-SW20 is a pretty small camcorder and very light. The reason why I choose this camcorder is because it’s smaller than some of the point and shoot camcorders out there.

Panasonic SDR-SW20

23 April 2009
  • Summary: The cool factor of waterproof gadgets is high, even when there's a subsequent trade-off in performance, as is the case with the Panasonic SDR-SW20. Anyone going any deeper than snorkel depth will need to look elsewhere, but at least the price reflects the compromises made for that cheerily tough exterior
  • Pros: It goes underwater; small, sleek design.
  • Cons: Fiddly controls; average video quality.

Water-proof camcorder captures to SDHC memory cards

Consumer Electronics Net
17 March 2008
  • Excerpt: Camcorders that will work in hostile places can tend to be very expensive. Sun, snow, dust, rain and humidity can all affect the ability to shoot by varying degrees, and the protection that needs to be afforded in the form of specialized housings can be the equivalent of a deposit on a small Porsche.

6 January 2009
  • Summary: For a first-time attempt at an underwater camcorder, the SDR-SW20 is a fairly solid performer. If you already own a camcorder, it will suit perfectly well as a secondary unit for oceanic holidays.
  • Pros: Waterproof/shock-proof/dust-proof design, underwater footage is surprisingly clear, cheap asking price
  • Cons: No hand strap hampers on-land shooting, screen is too reflective, swapping SD cards can be difficult in wet conditions

Panasonic SDR-SW20 review

7 November 2008
  • Summary: Taking your camcorder to the beach or on a camping trip is, almost without exception, a terrible idea. Sand, water and dust mix with lenses, tapes and electronics about as well as ice cream and ketchup. But now Panasonic is claiming to have torched the rulebook with its SDR-SW20. An SD camcorder that will happily take the higher capacity SDHC cards, it’s positively begging to be dunked in the pool or sprayed with fine sand.

Panasonic SDR-SW20 review

23 May 2008
  • Excerpt: Panasonic's SDR-SW20 is waterproof up to a depth of 1.5m, shock proof for falls of up to 1.2m and dust proof. It's perfect if you're the kind of person who enjoys outdoor pursuits. Unsurprisingly, the SDR-SW20 feels incredibly well made. Its simple oblong body feels very sturdy, as does the LCD screen's hinge, and the doors covering the ports are encased in rubber. Surprisingly, there's no lens cap or cover, though the recessed glass panel is scratch resistant.

Komputer for alle
5 February 2009
  • Summary: Det røde digitale videokamera fra Panasonic giver masser af blændende funktioner og praktiske egenskaber og nærmest tigger om at komme med en tur på stranden. Det er småt og let, optager direkte på hukommelseskort, og så er det både stødsikkert og vandtæt. Men når det kommer til kvaliteten på billedet og lyden, falder det desværre igennem. Videokameraet optager hverken på bånd eller DVD men direkte på hukommelseskort af typen SDHC (medfølger ikke).
  • Pros: Småt og let, Nem overførsel af video, Stødsikkert og vandtæt
  • Cons: Støj på lyden, Ringe billedkvalitet

SDR-SW20 — видеоамфибия от Panasonic

24 November 2008
  • Summary: Владельцы видеокамеры Panasonic SDR-SW20 могут не бояться того, что она выйдет из строя от влаги, например во время дождя, при катании на яхте или во время съемки на пляже из-за попавшего внутрь песка. Падения и удары она тоже способна пережить. Но главное, с ней можно нырять до 1,5 метров и вести подводную съемку.
