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.

  • Excerpt: Recording underwater scenes? The Panasonic SDR-SW20 can help you out with your underwater shots. Its waterproof, compact body allows you to record unforgettable marine action that takes place as deep as 1.5 metres in seawater. Its shockproof feature protects the devise against falls from up to 1.2 metres, while its dustproof feature assures the user of its durability.

Panasonic SDR-SW20

21 January 2009
  • Summary: The Panasonic SDR-SW20's only saving grace is its water-, shock-, and dust-proof body (and even those have limitations). Otherwise, there's no reason to buy this pocket camcorder.
  • Pros: Waterproof to 5 feet with decent results.
  • Cons: Poor performance and image quality; insecure handstrap; relatively expensive.

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.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Nyheden fra Panasonic er meget kompakt og vejer lige under 250 gram, så det kan sendes som brev for bare 20,50 kroner. Det vil man jo normalt ikke gøre, men det lille SW20 kan faktisk holde til det, for det er så robust, at det fx tåler at blive tabt fra 1,2 meters højde. Det kompakte ydre betyder også, at kameraet ikke fylder ret meget i hånden, så det er vanskeligt at holde det stille, når man zoomer ind, og der er ingen stabilisator.

27 February 2009
  • Summary: Nyheten fra Panasonic er svært kompakt og veier rett under 250 gram, så det kan sendes som brev for bare 23 kroner. Det vil man jo vanligvis ikke gjøre, men det lille SW20 kan faktisk holde til det, for det er så robust at det f.eks. tåler å bli sluppet fra 1,2 meters høyde. Det kompakte ytre betyr også at kameraet ikke tar så stor plass i hånden, så det er vanskelig å holde det stille når man zoomer inn, og det har ingen stabilisator. Ikke nok med at SW20 er robust.

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
