Although i have given it 5 stars, i have not yet used it a great deal. Basing this on what i have seen so far it does look like a good buy. I’m no professional but find it so easy to use. Picture quality looks great but again not used it much. Great size, fits in your hand easily. The only real downside i can see is the panning which seems to be a minor problem a few people find. Not a professional as i say, so this does me fine. Would recommend this camera and the service was unbelievably fast, within 2 days.

Superb picture quality, but handle with care. A true high definition video camera of this quality for around £400 is quite extraordinary. The camera is small, perhaps unnecessarily small, made possible by the absence of any tape or disc recording mechanisms. In fact the only moving parts seem to be the excellent zoom lens. One silly design flaw is the inability to use the battery charger and mains adaptor simultaneously. Sound quality is fine although wind noise will always be a problem with a microphone on top of the camera. Picture quality when played back through a panasonic hd television is simply breathtaking. There are some helpful features like touching the subject on the screen while shooting which causes the focus to keep that element in focus as it moves around the screen, ideal forevents like weddings and sports days etc. The only down side is the slightly flimsy build quality. Will need treating with kid gloves if it is to survive on location.

Happy with video both still & motion. Only doing very basic stuff so suits my needs. Only complaint is you dont get even a basic flash card with it so had to wait to try it.

Very small & light, fantastic picure quality when reviewed playback on 37′ tv, battery life not brilliant and haven`t tried the software yet but overall very pleased with the product.

Panasonic HDC-SD10 High Definition Flash Memory Camcorder With 16x Optical Zoom – Black : I wanted a cheap hd camcorder for up and coming trips and this is exactly what i wanted. All the features i want, small size and well made. Will fit in a coat pocket and at highest definition an 8gb card will take over 1 hour recording. More at lesser definitions (still hd).

This camera produces stunning images with vibrant true-to-life colours, it is, however, totally useless when outside on a bright day. It really needs a viewfinder. The lcd screen is invisible in the sunshine, so i will not be taking it to southern france next week on holiday. For that purpose, a waste of money.

Had camera for a few years now very happy, put good class 10 sd card in, picture quality very good, battery life not bad, never run out when filming not yet, good price as well. Ps would buy upgrade when ready.

All you need for home videos and more. Fantastic camera with a load of functional control for the money but easy to use if you want. Excellent quality in daylight and the avchd format is even better than hdv if you have the right conditions. Doesnt handle low light very well but then it does have an on board light. Very compact and actually fits into your pocket. Used together with a panasonic tv with card reader after editing the movie clips on board and you might not even need a pc. Excellent value for money and would highly recommend from novice to pro. Tip: its light weight is a great asset for travelling but if you are doing a lot of tracking or motion shots, you can improve on the already impressive built in stabiliser by attaching a lightweight tripod to the camera, not extending the legs and walking around with it.

Excellent product from panasonic. Easy to use very good video picture. As it records only onto memory card id recommend a 16gb sd card. Sandisk 16gb sdhc secure digital card.

It is a great little camera recording high quality footage. But when filming inside it is very grainy and dissapointing this is an outdoor camcorder.

Couldn’t be happier with this, does everything it says it will and is great value for the price.

For me, not too sure if you have very large hands as it is very small and compact. Take a bit of getting used to, not haviong a viewfinder, but after a short while i found operating everything from the touch screen very easy. Very good microphone, picks up every little sound, including the wind. Havent quite worked out how to reduce it yet. Picture quality when replayed on hd television is very good but transfer time direct from camera to disc on my pc is slow. Takes about 2 hours to transfer 1 hour of video. But transfer from camera onto pc is much quicker, reduced time by at least 75%.

Nice camera, shame about the software. To start off, the camera is nice as far as i can tell. I’ve filmed quite a fair bit with it. The software is far less than ideal but there isn’t much that can be done about it sadly. It’s not mentioned on the apckaging how awkward the filetype that the camcorder records in is to deal with for beginners. The provided software for example did not work at all for me untill i invested almost an entire day into trying different software. (urgh i had to register for soooo many trial packages 🙁 )finally i googled the right question. ” and so i would reccomend to anyone else having difficulty to google for k-lite codec pack, research it to make sure it’s safe for you for certain but it’s what i ended up needing to get anything to work at all on my computer.

Bought this to take out to peru to see my son and apart for the different zoom speeds between the top rocker and the screen buttons proved excellent in use. Ideal for the high altitude of the andean plateau. When on, opening the screen brought the system up in seconds and i never needed to use the pre-record button. The high def pictures are great. There could be a better editor supplied, but apart from that all round very good for the money.

I have had a jvc hard drive camera for some time but realised with hd tv’s etc that the quality needed to improve and so i looked around for a good value for money, easy to use camcorder and realised that the panansonic hdc-sd10 was the right option for me. I was quite excited when it arrived and after unpacking it i was surprised at its size and weight, so small and so light. I started to play with it and try it out and soon found that its abilities far exceeded my old jvc. The clarity was superb, sound great, menu options easy. Touch screen ooperations brilliant, zoom terrific. Its easy to charge, easy to maintain. So, have i any dissapointments?.Firstly, you don’t even get an sdhc card with it, so you have to buy one to try the camcorder.

This was my first hd cam and i am not disapointed. It records in full hd and very easy to use. With its touch screen controls it make sit very easy to setup. The small battery that comes with this lasts a nice 3-4 hours and a 16gb sg card (not included) can record about 1-2 hours. This is a great, small, light and easy to use cam. Great got every day use or for recording them planned events.

An excellent product, light and easy to use. The 1000 digital zoom is a very shaky and broken at full stretch but on a maximum of 40x it’s a sharp clear image with exceptional definition. Hence hd, all together a good buy.

Panasonic hdc-sd10 (4 out of 5 stars). I bought this camera and found it to be exactly as i expected with the bonus that it imported video to imovie ’08 without issue on my macbook via usb2. On the box it says that you require imovie ’09, but as i have found ’08 also works. The zoom is very smooth, and produces good results even when the 16x optical zoom is combined with the digital zoom to give a combined 40x zoom (although it does go up to 1000x which i’ve not tried yet). Camera is very compact, light and charges in around 1. Touch screen is generally very responsive, and easy to navigate. There are only 2 minor downsides that i have noticed so far: 1) some visible noise (i. Pixelation) when used in low light conditions, but the camera light goes some way to resolve this, 2) small moveable plastic flap has to be moved every time a component or usb cable is plugged in.
