Panasonic SDR-SW21 review

 

Waterproof, shockproof and dustproof, is there nothing this compact SD-card, MPEG2 camcorder can't handle?

Waterproof and shockproof powers mean this camcorder can roll with the punches – but its movie performance is far from knockout

Panasonic SDR-SW21

 

The underwater picture quality is excellent, just what I wanted. 2 x Record buttons very useful too, Esp for videoing children. You can operate the camera at waist hight instead of having to get down on the floor with the children. However I find I...

Only the accidental zoom mentioned above when using the side record button to record at waist hight
