GOOD GEAR GUIDE - EDITOR'S CHOICE

Expert review by: Chris Jager (goodgearguide.com.au)

Panasonic HDC-SD700 Full HD camcorder

 

The Panasonic HDC-SD700 is a Full HD camcorder that records AVCHD video to removable flash memory cards. With a retail price of $1499, it slots snugly...

Superb 1080p HD video performance, 14.2-megapixel still image mode, lots of high-end features for videophiles (including external audio and a manual focus ring)

A bit bulkier than competing flash memory-based camcorders, no inbuilt memory

The Panasonic HDC-Sd700 is everything that a high-def camcorder should be. It provides a wealth of advanced features for experienced videographers, while remaining very user-friendly for beginners. Without question, it is one of the best HD camcorders...

Panasonic HDC-SD700 review

 

The Panasonic HDC-SD700 slots snugly between the Panasonic SDR-H280 and the Panasonic HDC-HS700-K as the company's midrange offering.
