Panasonic SD600 Full HD 1920x1080p, Great picture quality – Annoying fan noise

High Definition

Its already hard to believe that, just 10 years ago, owning an analogue camcorder with a mini cassette was the bee’s knees in the family, and of course, owning a d. V version was only for enthusiasts. Whats even harder to believe is that we paid more for that horrid jvc contraption that we did for this marvel. And thats what it is – a marvel for this price. After reading the other reviews it seems everyone else has outlined the product well, so here are just some personal high’s and low’s:+ the package is well thought out and contains everything you would typically need, aside from an sd card obviously. Whereas other companies like sony rely on extra profits from accessories, panasonic have delightfully included a wireless remote to control your camcorder (very handy indeed), a lens-hood for blocking out some light, a hd-component cable and even a stylus to navigate the touch screen more accurately. + compared to the upcoming ‘sd800’, i did a lot of research to see if i was worthwhile paying the extra bucks, and as it turned out the only real difference was that the 800 is compatible with panasonic’s new 3d adapter. Given ‘digital 3d’ is popular with.

Great picture quality – annoying fan noise. This takes very nice video at 1080p 50fps. It picks up a lot of colour and depth. Overall the video quality is very satisfying. I also have the panasonic sdx1 and was comparing them boththe sd600 has 3 sensors, so it can pick up more colours compared to the sdx1. It not always a noticable difference between the 2 cameras, but sometimes you can see a big differnce in the sd600’s favour. The sd600 also is better in low light. The sdx1 does however have a longer zoom, and seems to snap into focus faster, and focus better when zoomed in very close to objects, i think. The sd600 has a better microphone, but it does have that annoying fan noise – a constant buzz/drone that can be heard easily in ambient surroundings. The sd700 has a few extra features, but i dont need the view-finder or external mic jack – though if an external mic could be used, the fan noise would be less noticable.

Once again amazon have excelled themselves. Ordered friday 2nd july delivered monday 5th july using free delivery. My initial thoughts on the panasonic hdc-sd600 camcorder. For a ‘simplified’ version of the sd700 it sure has a lot of features that i’ll never use. Using full auto (ia) produces an absolutely fabulous picture quality. I won’t use the top recording mode because i have no way of playing back the videos. I’m using the next setting down and i think the reproduction is superb, i can’t praise it enough. I thought the picture from my old panasonic nv-s90(s-vhs-c) were good, but these are so much better. I can’t imagine how good it must be if you are able to use the full hd setting.

I upgraded from a canon hv-20 and i can say this cam is exactly what i have been waiting for in years. Gone are the days of tape rewinding and capturing, gone are the lost hours you’d had to spend rewinding and transferring your tape footage (at real time). Now you just instantly enjoy the superb crisp video this little device prouduces. Just plug the sd card via a card reader into my ps3 and all videos are played smoothly, even 1080/50p . A good companion for this camera is a 32 gb sdhc class 10 card and a larger battery pack.

I decided to replace my dv tape camcorder recently and decided on the panasonic hdc sd600. I read many reviews, watched lots of test clips on youtube and tried other camcorders but the sd600 trounced the competition every time. Image quality is superb, capturing fine details and true to life colours like none of the others. Even the still images from the sd600 are better than my panasonic tz7, which up until now i always rated very highly. Viewing back footage recorded in 1080p/50 on an hd tv is simply breathtaking. It’s unfortunate at the moment that it’s not very easy to edit this. Hopefully things will improve in the near future. Saying that, the 1080i picture is still excellent quality and if you’re writing to dvd then it probably won’t make any difference anyway. I saw a lot of talk about being able to hear the fan but have to say, i’ve tried and failed to hear it on any of the video i’ve taken, even in extremely quiet situations.

Panasonic SD600 Full HD 1920x1080p (50p) Camcorder with 3MOS Sensor and SD Card Recording – Black : Simply an incredible camcorder. I used this camcorder to film my two holidays in slovenia, and recently i had the chance to fix the video together. I was stunned by the clarity of the video. Just be careful when using this cam in low light – i would recommend not leaving it on auto in such cases, though, even on auto mode, it does an acceptable job.

What a great camera, over 5 years old and still producing excellent footage.
If you have not enough money to buy panasonic hdc-sd900. If you have not enough money to buy panasonic hdc-sd900, but want it’s recording quality, then this camcorder is right for you. It is the same panasonic hdc-sd900, only without some physical and software functions.

I bought this camera a few years ago now. Still can’t fault it for the money. Very easy to use and produces almost professional results when using a tripod.

We recently took this on holiday with us. The quality of the images is very good, particularly in 1080p. The only problem is that they intend you to playback on the camcorder as the files are generally not recognised on other devices. That is a problem if you intend to edit etc. Why they cannot stick to one consistent file type on all devices across manufacturers is beyond me. We even have the latest mac and that still struggles with these files, so we had to convert to lower quality. Also there is no wind cancelling option. You don’t realise at the time of filming, but the microphone is really sensitive to wind.

Jumped from 13 year old camcorder to this. I won’t repeat other reviews regarding the fantastic picture quality. Just some of my own observations. I have been able to hear the fan running as i record but it is very unobtrusive. On one clip, recorded in a very quiet room, i did notice what sounded like a very distant vacuum cleaner when i played it back in a very quiet environment that i hadn’t noticed before when watching with normal room background noise. Personally it didn’t affect my enjoyment of watching the recording. I looked at other sd camcorders and they are tiny. I borrowed an sd600 from a friend first before buying and i found it a perfect size and weight. Get your hands on one to hold. You will be convinced it’s the right size. My previous camcorder is a 13 year old vhsc recorder.

Great but a couple of things to note. Consi can’t download from hd writer 2. 1 to external hard drive directly, which is a huge drawback when trying to save onto it. Viewing via another program needs research to find and buy, obviously panasonic are doing there level best to get you to use there own gear. Having had the camera for about 2 years i do get “stuttering on panning playback” on computer. This may be just down to being an old computer or using class 4 sdhc cards, most noticable when shooting at a distance of around 8ft away. Ok when viewing through camcorder screen its very smooth. Wind noise is a problem and there is no way to muffle it. Price drop is considerable and something to take into account if buying this kind of product new. Prosexcellent picture quality and easy to use once found way around menu which is considerable supplied battery does need a spare if shooting for some time and would recommend getting a panasonic battery model no vw-vbg260 which has 2640mah against the supplied 1250mah.

I bought this to replace our aging tape based camcorder, and wow how pleasently surprised was i. I had read the great reviews on site, but this camcorder give amazing quality video playback and is so intuative to use. The on screen menues make it easy to find the functionality you need or simply put it onto “auto everything” and shoot away. Cant recomend this highly enough, but make sure you buy a large sd card as recording in 1080p high def does create some very large files.

Ok and output not always compatible. Great camera and nice small size. Wonderful clear full hd results, but the output is not always compatible with all software and computers so i would probably say to go for something else.

Used for the first time yesterday at my friendswedding, nice and easy to work but was notcompletely satisfied with the volume of soundas i was recording a wedding service and was hoping it would beas good or even better than my old camcorder, but found thatyou need the volume on you’r tv turned up quite a bit for play back. It would be brilliant apart from the mic.

I bought this camcorder after much research and reading of reviews. There’s little i can add to the praise heaped on this model – quality is really excellent. I’ve given 4 stars only however because of the fan noise which affects sound recording in any quiet setting – you can’t get rid of it, nor is there input for external mikes. Praise for picture quality also needs to be put in the context of understanding the editing demands of working with hd film – computers that may cope well with standard def may well struggle with hd, so if you are considering doing much editing in hd, be aware that you may need to upgrade to quad core and dedicated graphics.

Excellent detail and picture. A very good camera that is highly recommended both for quality in all kinds of ambients and great features.

Good camera does all it say on the tin but be aware of how you process the footage in the computer can prove to be a problem for mac users as not much soft around and poor blu-ray suport.

Received it, does what it is told. I do not regret a second for buying it.
Give a professional result for a beginner. I am amazed at the quality and definition,as a total beginner the manual was a little daunting and could do with a quick start supplement. Also bought the gem bag, small but takes the sd600 perfectly.
