5.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic HDC-SD700 great camcorder, 29 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Panasonic SD700 Full HD 1920x1080p Camcorder With 3MOS Sensor, SD Card Recording and Manual Control Ring - Black (Camera)
I bought this camcorder as a replacement for my 10 year old mini-DV camcorder. things have moved on somewhat and with this latest model costing half the price of the old model, it shows how much bang for your buck you get these days.

I am very impressed with the clear real life feel and look of the video footage. When you view back on your HD TV the content is like looking through your own eyes.

I am using an Apple MAC with Adobe Premiere CS5 and it imports and edits perfectly.

The two niggles I have are the poor battery life which is less than 1hr, and the fan noise when filming in quiet situations.

Beyond that I am very happy with this purchase. Lets see if this last 10 years, like my previous Panasonic.

Been using this camera for some time now, and I am still very impressed by the image quality. Only real complaint is that I can not find a compact case to carry the camcorder in. Have been using larger case, which defeats the object of having such a small handy video camera.

As I have been filming weddings, I am adding a Panasonic GF3 DSLR to add the ability to add Shallow Depth of Field shots to my videoing. As you may know, with camcorders, it is very difficult to get the cinematic look and feel due to everything in shot being in sharp focus.

I have found that the AVCHD file format import easily on the Apple Mac, and have just started using Final Cut Pro X to import and edit with no problems. Also can import on the free version of iMove 11.

Only problem here is that you must import the file from the SD card whilst in the camera. I have tried to copy the SD card data to the Hard Disk and then import, but this didn't work.
