This review is from: Panasonic HDC-SD9EB-S HD Camcorder (Electronics)
Very good camcorder for the price! I wanted a small camcorder I could take with me and leave my still camera behind.
This is very small, yet big enough to fit nicely into my hand. I have taken lots of photos and they are very good quality also they loo great on my widescreen TV. On that subject, photos are in widescreen so printing them at a normal size does mean you have the extreme ends cut off (you can sort most of this out using any photo/picture software).
The standard battery has lasted really well.
I have used 8Gb SDHC cards and had cam on its very highest settings which gives roughly an hours filming with plenty of photos aswell. This is easily handled by the battery.
Only thing I'd change is the menu toggle switch which is difficult to operate as its fairly small.
AVCHD (the cam catches footage using this) is still new and there is not alot of software available for editing etc. also your PC has tobe high spec to be even able to play back your HD footage. So keep this in mind. I am simply watching footage back from the cam before I upgrade PC and let editing software etc. catch up with this technology.
