Panasonic HDC-SD10 Video Camera

 

The SD-10 is targeted towards the casual user that will have the camera on auto mode pretty much all the time.

The SD-10 is targeted towards the casual user who wants to record decent quality videos without really getting in the details and manually adjusting settings. From that aspect, its a decent camera and at a retail price of AED 2399/- makes it a good...

The HDC-TM10's little brother is cheaper but still a strong contender

Gloriously lightweight ; Surprisingly versatile ; iA mode is great

Doesn't like fast panning ; Only £30 cheaper than TM10

Panasonic HDC-SD10 review

 

If small size and low weight are important considerations, but you don't want the poor-quality video that's typical of pocket camcorders, you should consider the Panasonic HDC-SD10

Small and light ; Welcome balance between simplicity and advanced features ; Pleasing video picture quality

Weak photo quality ; Some construction issues ; Over-eager autofocus

Conclusion The Panasonic HDC-SD10 isn't perfect by a long shot, but, overall, the good points outweigh the bad. Combining small size and convenience with decent performance, Panasonic's petite video star is simple enough for first timers, yet offers...

Panasonic HDC-SD10 review

 

There is a dilemma, if you bought the TM10 instead of this (for around £25-30 more) you would get the same camera but with 8GB of internal memory or you could buy the SD10 without the internal memory but with the savings go out and buy a larger memory...

Packed with features and highly pocketable, but image quality is lacking considering the high price

Panasonic HDC-SD100EBK

 

The Panasonic HDC-SD100EBK is a full HD compact camcorder that comes with a 3MOS sensor for more vibrant colours, an iA/ Leica Decomar lens, an SDHC memory card slot, and the Manual ring which gives users more freedom in controlling and manipulating...

This solid state camcorder couldn’t impress us more if it was made of solid gold and came with a member of the So Solid Crew singing a little ditty about how solid it was. One of the very best Flash camcorders around. Panasonic HDC-SD100EBK is tagged...

Most affordable HD camcorder in the market ”

 

Ok, so here I am going to review this camcorder in a layman's point of view, that is me. This is my first ever camcorder that I own. I bought this camcorder for personal use only, to capture some very precious moments with my wife, my nephews, my...

Product Specifications

The SD10 features a 16x optical zoom. You can zoom close to catch dynamic shots of distant objects. And because the zoom is optical, there's limited image degradation. Also, Panasonic's Advanced O.I.S. helps prevent blurring - typically a big concern when shooting with a zoom. This combination of optical zoom and Advanced O.I.S. gives you the ability to take fantastic zoom shots. Panasonic's Advanced O.I.S. helps suppress the effects of hand-shake as you shoot, for both motion and still images. This system uses gyro-sensors to detect even tiny amounts of hand-shake, then shifts a lens and adjusts the optical axis to compensate - all at an astounding 4,000 times per second. Because the system is optical, there's only minimal loss of image quality even when viewed on a large-screen TV. In addition, to shoot high-resolution still images, the normal O.I.S. mode 1 is joined by an O.I.S. mode 2, which has a higher stabilization capability. The O.I.S. corrective lens shifts and stabilizes the image the instant that the shutter button is pressed, to enable greater precision in stabilization. You get all the beauty and minimal blurring. There's nothing more disappointing than shooting an once-in-a-lifetime event on video, only to discover that the images are blurry or poorly exposed because of backlighting. Panasonic's iA helps avoid problems in difficult shooting situations by automatically making the optimal camera settings and activating certain functions. For example, iA includes AF tracking, a function that "locks" on and follows a subject as it moves, so images are sharply focused and properly exposed. This technology is a huge help for everyone.
