Another member of Panasonic's AVCHD 1080/24p full-HD format cameras, the HDC-HS9 records beautiful HD videos directly to an internal hard drive. The 60-gigabyte drive can hold up to 29 hours of footage, which should be ideal for those who plan to do lots of shooting before coming back to their computer. Also included is Panasonic's Advanced O.I.S. image stabilization system, which can save your video from blur caused by camera shake. The camera's shooting range is pretty good thanks to the lens's 10x optical zoom, and it also includes face detection and tele macro modes, which provide further shooting options. With its big storage and full HD quality, this should be a good choice for anyone interested in entry-level HD shooting.
