Panasonic - not pro perfection, but still a pleasing past time

JLRphotog..., Ciao
22 July 2013
  • Excerpt: As a professional photographer I've never really had much of an interest in video – until last year I still owned a Sony Hi8 camcorder that used to be my mum's and hadn't been put to use for about 4 years.

Power Mac users beware

  • Summary: Just bought this as it seemed to do everything I need for occasional movie recording. I also saw the Mac compatible label on the box and I am running a Power Mac with Leopard and iLife 09 so thought there wouldnt be a problem.

Great bit of kit

Wrinkly, Amazon
6 November 2009
  • Summary: Just upgraded from 10 yr old Canon camcorder and cannot fault the Panasonic SD20, the touch screen is ideal and the 50 frames per second motordrive facility is superb for ensuring that the best stills image is obtained.
