Editor's Review

The Panasonic HDC-SD1 camcorder is perhaps the most remarkable entry into the new class of high-definition camcorders, with advanced HD capabilities that will bring a cinematic level of detail to your home movies. For one, the SD1 is so-named because it records video directly to Secure Digital memory cards. Solid state flash memory. There are no moving parts involved in the recording process, which means there's less stuff that can get broken and ruin your camcorder or your recording. Top it all off with a really amazing zoom microphone that follows the lens and can capture excellent sound and great distances, and you've got a really wonderful camcorder.

bad for bright light (josph thomas — 09/05/2007)

Excellent result in low light-no or very blurred picture at bright light especially beach, snow or during noon time-I tried all combinations of manual setting to see if we can improve-no way. The sensor is made only for low light shooting. I had to return, as I shoot lot of bright scenes. If you dont this is the camra. If adequate light, this is the best camera.
But dont think others make better camera- think still this is the winner. I tried sony, canon, JVC. Canonis the worst sone in between. Please dont trust any reviews-they all are biased.
