This compact and rugged camcorder from Panasonic is designed for active lifestyles, and meant to be used whenever the need arises. It features a water and shock-resistant build that allows it to be used in damp conditions and to survive a drop of up to four feet. Despite these concessions to durability it also produces a great image with its 10x optical zoom Panasonic lens and Electronic Image Stabilization, which can reduce blur from camera shake. The SDR-S10 records directly to removable SD/SDHC cards, which means that your videos can be viewed nearly immediately on your PC or Mac. A 2GB SD card is included to get you started.
