Summary: Have been using this camera now for a number of years, since purchasing it. Super quality, easy to use, compact and very transportable. Film codec not recognised by all software in the beginning but these days the choice is much bigger and accesable. Love it to bits.
Summary: I was bought this as a birthday present by my husband. He is an electronic engineer and I always know any electronic product purchased by him is going to be very carefully researched, to be the best available for our needs within our price-range. Overall, the camcorder looks small and stylish and is very easy to use. The video quality is absolutely outstanding for a handheld camcorder.
Summary: Just before Lottie was born I wanted a video camera to capture all those special moments. I chose this Panasonic HDC SD60 because we had read some brilliant reviews and the price was just about right. Let's talk about the camera beforeI tell you how I have got on with it. Features - A standard list for you: Full 1080 HD recording 35 X zoom Power Optical Image Stabilisation 35.7 mm lens Rotatable flip screen Touch screen SDHC/SD Memory card reader 5.0 megapixels...
Summary: I picked my SD60 up for £230 from a clearance sale at dixons. So a bargin for me. The camera is great quality and the footage is excellent. Dont be put off by the fact it records at 1080i and not 1080p. This initially put me off but after reading numerous reviews i bit the bullet and bought one.
Summary: I bought this camera just after Christmas having got completely fed-up with my old one because it was a) slow and b) didn't have wide screen. I did a lot of internet research and discovered this was recommended as the best camera out there in my price range. It falls between the £200 - £300 price mark. So I played about with it (my sister also has one) and then decided to buy one. I have to say that at first I was sceptical.
Pros: Very quick to turn on. Tells you when you go wrong.
Summary: My first camcorder and I'm very pleased with it. I wanted something easy to operate that produced excellent video, and this camcorder meets that requirement. I've not used the still picture facility or the advanced functions. Picture quality is excellent outside, but also when used indoors. The image stabilisation works very well even at extended zoom and the autofocus system responds quickly, providing sharp images at all times.
I really like it. Easy to import from SDHC to my iMAC

Summary: In daylight or good lighting and without wind blowing: Excellent camera. The picture (both still and video) comes out perfect! Also the sound! In dark light: OK, but not perfect quality. However, I have only used the auto mode. If you pan with the camera: Not soo good quality. I cut them away when I edit the video on my mac because the video becomes "bumpy". Perfect size! I filmed during 8 days of skiing hoiday and it was so easy to bring the canera in my pocket.
Summary: I wanted to upgrade my 4 year old camcorder and having read umpteen reviews from both professional and amatur commentators I settled for the Panasonic SD60HD as offering the best balance between cost, performance and quality. One will never know if this was the right decision but I have to say that the camcorder does everything that Panasonic claims.
