Panasonic unveils new HD consumer camcorders
Panasonic has unveiled the HDC-SD5 and HDC-SX5 consumer HD video camcorders that record 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution video using the AVCHD format.
Both employ Panasonic's original 3CCD camera system and support the company’s Advanced OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer) system to minimize the effect of shaking hands.
The palm-style HDC-SD5 records video onto SDHC/SD memory cards. The SD5 also features a new USB host function that improves data storage and playback ease.
The HDC-SX5 can record full-HD motion images onto both SDHC/SD memory cards and DVD discs. It can record up to 180 minutes of video on an 8GB SDHC memory card, scheduled for release in September, and up to 60 minutes on a 3in DVD-R dual-layer disc.
