Panasonic SV-AS10

 

Panasonic's SV-AS10 combines a 2-megapixel digital camera, a video recorder, a digital voice recorder, and an audio player in one wafer-thin package. But despite this ambitious roster of features and the AS10's elegant design, we can recommend this...

Incredibly thin; performs multiple functions; rotating lens; selectable ISO settings.

No optical zoom; poor video and still quality; no image stabilization; audio playback levels are too low; short battery life.

This sleek four-in-one gadget is fine for casual use if you don't look too closely at its output.

Smallest working pocket camera I have been able to find

 

You wouldn't want this as your only camera but as a backup is it excellent. Contrary to some reviews I think the pix are OK and good on screen. I had one, broke it, tried two other "compact" cameras and finally found anothe SV 10 s/hand and still ......

Small size and weight, good 2 mp pictures, LCD OK

Sound weak, digi zoom only, casing is fragile

"Works great for that fast pic when you need it fast."

 

I like it! easy to use, fast start up and ready to use in under a min. I like that couse there are times that a picture is needed real quick and dont have time to run and look for it, couse its in my pocket charged and rdy to shoot.

Small factor easy to carry around. Had it for a year now and working great. Keep it on me all the time in my pocket.

The only thing i can say is Battery needs to be charged after about a half hour of use so its best if you have a spare rdy for that long haul

Product Specifications

Don't let life pass you by for another second. Take digital pictures on the fly wherever you go with the super-slim SV-AS10. It is only 9mm wide, but it takes print-quality 2-megapixel snapshots and offers a variety of functions rivaling those of a conventional full-size digital still camera. Great for sharing with family and friends. Listen to tunes on your SV-AS10? That's right - enjoy MP3, WMA or AAC digital music files for up to 10 hours. Ideal for the commute to work, exercising or tuning out your professor. The SV-AS10 is not only a digital still camera, it can also record motion JPEG clips (60 seconds max) on the fly. Motion JPEG clips can be shared over the Internet by e-mail, posted on Web pages or viewed on a compatible PC. Did a great idea just enter your head? Run into a celebrity on the street? Nobody is going to believe you unless you recorded it on the SV-AS10. The built-in microphone lets you record sound onto an SD Memory Card in the same way as you would with an IC recorder. The SV-AS10 comes with a 1.5" diagonal LCD screen for quick, on-the-spot playback. It allows you to look at still images or video that you recorded with your D-snap SD Video Camera. The SV-AS10 has a rotating lens for shooting pictures at creative angles or taking snapshots of yourself with your friends. This way you don't have to be left out of the picture.
