Panasonic HDC 60 review: Panasonic HDC 60

 

Manual shutter-speed and iris controls; comfortable size; smarter-than-average autofocus; lens focuses relatively closely; decent battery life.

Soft video; cramped, low-resolution touch screen.

Panasonic's quartet of entry-level HD camcorders--the HDC-HS60, TM60, TM55, and SD60--delivers a nice manual feature set and good performance, as well as solid video quality for their class. As long as you don't pay list price, the SD60 is a great...

Panasonic HDC-HS60 Camcorder Review

 

The HDC-HS60 is part of Panasonic's new crop of mid-range camcorders for 2010. It boasts a 1/4.1-inch CMOS sensor, 25x optical zoom lens, and 120GB internal hard drive. The camcorder impressed us with its strong performance, but we expect a lot of good...

Panasonic definitely impressed us with the improvements it made with the HDC-HS60 (MSRP $699.95). The camcorder was a much stronger performer than Panasonic's crop of mid-range models from last year, and it often matched or exceeded the performance of...

Panasonic HDC-HS60

 

Panasonic welcomed a new crop of mid-range HD camcorders this year, one of which is the HDC-HS60. The HS60 is a Full HD camcorder that records to a 120GB internal hard drive or to SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. The camcorder also has a 25x optical zoom,...

While the HDC-HS60 is not a top-of-the-line model, it still has an extensive amount of manual controls and very good video quality to boot. The camcorder is pretty compact, but it's definitely not too small-so it should appeal to people that are used...

Panasonic HDC-HS60

 

A strong performer, but we expect stiff competition this year

Good color & noise results; Good motion & sharpness; Plenty of manual controls

Touchscreen can be annoying

Panasonic HDC-HS60 Full HD camcorder

 

A Full HD Panasonic camcorder with a 120GB HDD and SDXC memory card support

Great value for money, 120GB hard drive, excellent video quality, supports crazy-capacity SDXC cards

Lacking in bells and whistles, no external microphone jack

The Panasonic HDC-HS60 may lack in-depth manual modes and superfluous gimmicks, but it makes up for it via excellent image quality and a price that is hard to beat. Highly recommended.

Panasonic HDC-HS60 review

 

Compact Full HD camcorder offering over 50 hours of movie storage

Compact and light ; Great wide-angle lens 120GB HDD ; Crisp, sharp footage ; 25x optical zoom

Feeble video light ; No YouTube-style upload ; Touchscreen can be unresponsive ; No headphone/mic socket ; Only 5MP stills

The Panasonic HDC-HS60 is a brand new full HD camcorder which packs internal storage galore as well as many other nifty features.

Panasonic HDC-HS60 review

 

Panny's latest mid-range shooter packs a 120GB hard drive and Full HD recording. But does it live up to the specs?

Not the world’s most stylish camcorder, but one of the best mid-range performers we’ve seen

Very Impressed

 

Love my new camcorder. Lightweight with very good battery life. High quality playback and good on board functionality. Simple to use to the point that my kids love to use it.
