Small and Mighty


This is a great piece of kit,easy to use and carry in your pocket, instead of some great lump of a video camera which is always in the way. a real joy to use. So many people were impressed by the look and quality of it. a little show stopper.

good value


fantastic value for money. Very small and easily handled rather than some of the small camcorders from Sony JVC etc which are too small. Virtually pocketable which makes it very handy. Ideal for our cruising activities.

Panasonic HX-DC10


quality picture, can use instantly for video or photo, handy to take anywhere.

because it can be put in your pocket or handbag, it should have had an automatic shutter on the lense to protect it when not in use.

Excellent Purchase


I bought this as an upgrade as the one we had was a bit heavier, and it is a lot easier to operate and much lighter,. Its compact and fits neatly in his pocket. He is well pleased with it. Thank you Argos!

Panasonic HX-DC10


Good quality filming, though hd uses a lot of storage, also good in poorly lit areas. Zoom is excellent although to use the advanced zoom you need a tripod or a very steady hand. The flip screen allows easy viewing and can be tilted/angled to avoid glare

Does come with case but you can get one cheap on eBay, need to buy some memory too
