SW20 is not as rugged as specified.///

Dr.GUI, MSDN, retired, Amazon

  • Summary: Very happy with it until it slipped out of it case and fell 4' while hiking. The screen stopped showing images and was white only. Evidently it is not as rugged as advertised.

Good foolproof camcorder - poor battery

Tom Wind, Amazon
29 November 2008
  • Summary: I have used the SDR-SW20 for over 2 months now and overall I am happy with the product. Easy to navigate menu, nice picture quality (not HD!), lightweight. My only but important point of critique is the poor battery performance. In SD mode the battery only allows for 30min of recording time. NOT enough for weekend trips. I guess I have to buy a spare battery to avoid carrying the charger and cable.

  • Summary: Nice concept with mediocre execution. Picture quality is worse than mini tape. Its is very small and portable. Kind of awkward in your hand.

Good camera if you don't own a Mac

Joni K, Amazon
18 October 2008
  • Summary: This is a handy, easy to carry, simple to use with reasonable quality pictures. Can plug into newer TV sets and play the pictures quite easily. Only drawback is I have an intel duocore iMac - I cannot download the movies to the mac. The instructions are limited for a mac as well. i would recommend looking at something else if you are at all Mac inclined. I can't vouch for a pc as I don't have one. I guess I will have to get one now.

User Review

Родионов Сергей, Yandex
27 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Если скидывать файлы с карты памяти на прямую в комп, то в файлах не правильно выставлена информация о соотношении сторон. Приходится править вручную сторонним софтом или использовать прогу в комплекте (дико неудобную). Снимает в mpg2 ставя расширение при этом на mod. Переименовывайте в mpg2 и можно работать в любом редакторе.
  • Pros: Влагозащищенность (условно, так как в отзывах у большинства камера умирает в воде) но по крайней мере в дождь снимать не страшно. Можно снимать с закрытым дисплеем. Качественно собрана.
  • Cons: Качество съемки на троечку. Камеры digital-8 снимают на порядок лучше. Стабилизатор только электронный, при его использовании, при панорамировании или съемки движущихся объектов - картинка замирает и резко смещается. (не удачный алгоритм обработки)

Видеокамера Panasonic SDR-SW20

Сергей, toneto.net

  • Conclusion: по поводу этой камеры чуства смешаные - классная в том плане, что можно таскать с собой где и когда угодно в любую погоду и даже в воду можно ронять потому что водонепронецаимая. но качество видео вообще неважнецкое - у некоторых фотыков такое же. при этом еще и батарея совсем слабая даже на час записи не хвати. звук тоже голимый совсем, а ночью так вообще ничего не снимеш нею. но зато в обращении совсем легкая.
