Panasonic SV-AV30 e-wear review: Panasonic SV-AV30 e-wear


Panasonic SV-AV30 e-wear

Ultracompact clamshell design; five-in-one device; includes a cradle for TV recording and playback.

Image quality is no match for that of dedicated cameras and camcorders; ships with a paltry 64MB SD card; no lens cover.

It can't replace a camera or a camcorder, but the SV-AV30 is a friendly, all-in-one A/V solution that fits in your pocket.

Product Specifications

With enhanced MPEG4 video, you get incredibly smooth motion of recording 320 x 240 pixel images at 15-frames per second. And with the supplied battery, the SV-AV30 multi-function AV recorder can record up to 90 minutes of continuous video1. Plus, multiple Record/Stop buttons make it easier to record with the camera upright or on its side. The SV-AV30 comes with a cradle for simple connection to a TV set or other analog device. Through this connection, you can record TV programs or play back your footage on a longer screen. And to recharge the battery, simply place the SV-AV30 back in the cradle. A built-in 2" diagonal, 200, 000-pixel LCD monitor lets you review video and still images immediately after you shoot them. And with a built-in speaker, you can listen to audio as well.
