Panasonic SDR-H85 Camcorder With 80GB HDD, panosonic sdr h 85

Panasonic sdr-h85 camcorder. The unit is compact – extremely good image stabilisation. No problems using for general ‘holiday shots’screen always easy to view. You will need a tripod when using zoom over about 25 x’s. But witha bit of practise it is possible to use at 25x’s to 30 x’s without one. The hard disc capacity is more than ample for a two week holiday (don’t forget the charger though)just bear in mind it is not hd quality – but the image is good. It wasn’t always obvious in the heat of taking a shot that it was in record mode, and it wasn’t obvious that you’d stopped shooting. Hence a number of shots of my armpit from my pocket. Didn’t use in low light conditions – so can’t comment on that.

Panasonic sdr-h85 sd/hdd hybrid. Its 80gb hdd allows you to film on the go without having to worry about remembering your memory cards or dvd’s etc. But it has the added benefit of a sd card slot so you can record and/or take photos then place them directly on your laptop and see you footage within seconds.The battery life is brilliant and the feel and look of the camera is really neat. Very small, it fits perfectly in your hand and is so comfy, you will forget it is there. The camcorder has a mega 78 x enhanced optical zoom (one of the best around) and 33mm wide angle lens. It comes with a recharge unit for the battery and full instructions- though you will not need them as it very simple to use. I am really impressed with this camcorder.

I bought this camera a few weeks ago primarily to film my sons athletics events, having tried before to video using my digital compact camera and having found it somewhat restrictive. I looked at many reviews including the latest panasonic high definition cameras and ended taking a bit of a gamble with this one as there were no reviews at the time but the reviews of it’s features were what had attracted me to it’s hd brothers. I went for the standard definition as my main usage is to upload to ‘you tube’ and link to websites for which standard definition seems to be fine. Having now been at two track meetings one without a tripod and one recently using my 25yr old slik 88 tripod i would agree with the other review i have just read that a tripod is best at high magnification though the image stabilisation works really well. I am looking for a video tripod now to make the panning a little less rough. The 80 gig hard drive is plenty for holidays etc and you have the additional option of an sd memory card if required so there are really no limits on storage. I am very pleased with the end results the zoom has enabled me to get close in to any part of the track from wherever i have positioned myself and the software that came with it makes it really easy to upload to you tube. Unfortunately i don’t seem to be able to create a link here to show but i am certainly impressed. The camera feels solid, probably helped with the hard drive on the side, the sd card fits in securely unlike one of the other panasonic cameras where this was mentioned as a problem, i have average sized hands and found operating both the zoom and the lcd panel menus comfortable and intuitivei still have lots to play with on this but have to say i would certainly recommend this camera for my sort of use and holidays, i also did a little bit of indoor filming and was pleased with that.

I really like this camcorder. Really easy to use, nice size and i really like the flexibility of having an internal harddrive and memory card. I did actually buy a memory card at the same time but i needn’t have bothered as there is so much hard drive space, i have come nowhere near to using it up. I was amazed at how far the zoom goes. Like most cameras it does get a bit wobbly when you zoom in but i think that is normal and can be avoided if rested on something or using a tripod. I looked at a few cameras before choosing this one and this was i think the best i found that combined the inbuilt hard drive and level of zoom for the price.

Panasonic SDR-H85 Camcorder With 80GB HDD, X78 Enhanced Optical Zoom, Wide Angle Lens, iA + Af Tracking and Optical Image Stabilisation – Black : This camera is great, its compact, fits in your pocket,amazing zoom, the battery lasts about 2 and a half hours, i got this to use to do a research product so got a second spare battery. Love the tilting screen, brilliant when its sunny. The record button is where yout thumb naturally sits when holding the camera, great for pressing record, just make sure you dont accidently press it again. Use long rec setting if you need to fast forward or rewind videos. Overall really pleased with this camera, would recommend to others.

This looks like a good camcorder because of all of the reveiwsa i have read but has not come yet.

The main advantage is that it is smaller than the average camcorder so it is easily held in one smaller than average hand without the arm ache. Easy to use despite an extensive instruction booklet and fab to catch those special moments. Am not a techie so am no good at commenting on the technical details – but it delivers what it says on the box.

Good camcorder for everyday use. Panasonic camcorder offers good quality image (not great).
I bought this camcorder for my son who is travelling in africa. He is delighted with the weight and also the good image quality. It did state that there was safe hand handling, i. No shaking, but this is not quite correct, however, overall a very good camcorder.

Nice camera but beware picture quality. Very light and simple controls. Massive storage capability on sd cards. But – i previously had a mini dv (tape) camera and the video quality was far superior to this, particularly if you edit and copy onto a dvd.
