Superior image processing
The SDR-H20 uses the Pure Colour Engine, designed to provide natural images with vivid colours. It converts the CCD output signal from a complementary colour signal into an RGB signal (containing the three primary colours in light) at an early stage and extracts the low-frequency luminance component from the RGB signal. The luminance signal is then generated in the same way as in TV broadcasting. Advanced 3D Frame Noise Reduction also provides better results when shooting with low illumination, resulting in improved colour noise reduction.
32x optical zoom
Enjoy remarkable 32x zoom magnification in a camera that fits comfortably and securely in one hand. The optical zoom captures moving pictures without image degradation. If this is not enough there is a digital zoom which runs up to 1000x.
Panasonic's Optical Image Stabiliser system minimises the shake that can be such a problem with camcorders. Because Panasonic's system is an optical one there is no degradation in image quality. Zooming tends to increase the blurring caused by shake but with O.I.S. youâll get crisp, clear close-ups too and your pictures will look spectacular even on a large-screen TV.
Three systems designed to save your data. The Drop Detect function senses if the camera is falling and moves the head away from the hard drive to help prevent any possible damage. The Floating Structure surrounding the drive with vibration-proof gel protects it should the camera fall or be dropped. The Buffer Memory system automatically backs-up data when the camera detects it has been dropped. When the system returns to normal the data is automatically transferred back to the drive.
Easy to use
With the One-Touch Navigation you simply press the centre of the joystick to display an operating menu. The operations you use most often are right on the monitor, so it's easy to change settings or operate the camera without looking away from your subject. The Mode Dial makes selections easy, just rotate the dial with your fingertip to select the icon that corresponds to the mode you want.
One-touch DVD creation
Connect the camera to a USB port on your PC, and you can copy your video data onto a 12-cm DVD disc by pressing a single button. You don't have to do anything to the PC. Likewise, connect the camera to a DVD writer and pressing one button is all it takes to copy data to a DVD disc.
The SDR-H20 features a Colour Night Mode which gives superb results under low light conditions. It also has a 123,0000 pixel 2.7in LCD screen, Anti-Ground Shooting system, Easy On/Off and much more. The SDR-H20 combines Panasonicâs initiative technology with ease of use for superb results.
