Mini DV Camcorder Review: Panasonic PV-DC252 Palmcorder

 

Panasonic's new PV-DC252 Mini DV camcorder is easily one of the smallest cams we've seen in any format. Don't let its small stature fool you - it has a full compliment of manual controls and creature comforts to satisfy most any videographer. It's...

Product Specifications

Panasonic's PV-DC252 Ultra-Compact Digital Palmcorder MultiCam is a pocket-sized, SD-compatible camcorder that captures the same high-quality digital video as conventional sized camcorders. Its super-small dimensions make the PV-DC252 so portable that you can bring it almost anywhere. This easy-to-use camcorder has a lot of convenient features such as a wired remote control, Zoom Mic, color LCD and Progressive PhotoShot Mode that helps to eliminate fuzziness by digitally capturing the image data of a singular moment, and temporarily storing it in two field memories. The two images are then combined to produce a better quality picture. This camcorder can also be used as high-quality digital still camera.
