Kate, Darvel

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This camera is extremely easy to use - menu functions easy to use - piccture quality on playback and stills excellent. No need to carry 2 cameras - took a lot of stills with this one as well as video.
Bad points:
battery life didn't last whole day - especially in the heat (Florida) had to charge every day - needs a stronger battery. Does not have a carry/neck strap which meant had to keep taking in an out of camera bag. No information on back light - no info on when it needs charged etc.

Camcorders Buying Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Advanced O.I.S. Reduces Camera Shake, Even at 50x Zoom
The SDR-H60’s 50x optical zoom lens has the power you need to take dramatic closeups or get remarkable shots of even distant subjects. But with long-distance zoom shots, even a tiny bit of hand shake has a huge effect on picture quality. That’s where Panasonic’s Advanced Optical Image Stabilization (O.I.S.) comes in, suppressing the effects of hand shake as you shoot. The system uses gyrosensors to detect hand shake, then shifts a lens and adjusts the optical axis to compensate. This all happens a remarkable 4,000 times per second. And because the system is optical, no image quality is lost. Thanks to Advanced O.I.S., the images you capture look incredibly clear, sharp and blur-free even at high zoom levels.

Non-Stop Shooting Fun with 60GB Hard Drive
Holding as much data as 43 DVD discs, the SDR-H60’s 60GB1 internal hard disk drive lets you record continuously for up to 54 hours (in LP mode).

Anti-Shock Shield Helps Protect Your Memories
Panasonic’s Anti-Shock Shield helps protect recorded video data from damage due to jolts and impact. The Drop Detect function senses if the camera is falling and moves the head away from the hard disk. The Floating Structure protects the hard disk should the camera fall or be dropped. And the Buffer Memory automatically backs up data while the camera is falling.

One-Touch DVD Copying
This hard disk drive camcorder has a USB Host function, which lets you connect directly to a DVD burner (sold seperately) via a USB cable. You can then copy recordings from the hard disk to a DVD disc by simply pressing a button.

Edit Your Videos
You can transfer the motion-image data from the SD card or the camcorder’s hard drive right to your PC2 using your PC’s USB port. Then with the included VideoCam Suite 1.0 software, you can easily put scenes in a different order and delete the ones you don’t want. When you’re finished with your video production, you can resave the edited version onto an SD memory card and a DVD disc.
