Panasonic Ultra-Light HD Camcorders

Joining the slew of high-definition camcorders the company unveiled at CES earlier this year , two new Panasonic HD camcorders will be available in September that the company claims are "the world's lightest full-HD AVCHD camcorders ."

The Panasonic HDC-SD10 and Panasonic HDC-TM10 will both weigh just half a pound, while both will offer 16x optical zoom lenses bolstered by optical image stabilization.

The HC-SD10 records 1920-by-1080 (full HD) video to SD/SDHC card with the AVCHD codec, while the HDC-TM10 records to both an 8GB flash drive and SD/SDHC cards. The HDC-TM10 also has the ability to switch between storage formats on the fly, which means video capture isn't interrupted if one of the storage devices fills up in the middle of a shoot.

Both camcorders will also boast features that are showing up across many Panasonic camcorder models, as well as rival camcorders from other manufacturers. The HDC-SD10 and HDC-TM10 both power on once you flip out their touchscreen LCDs, and Panasonic is touting a quick, 1.9-second power-up time for both camcorders. Each camcorder also features a pre-recording buffer, in which video is captured three seconds before the record button is pressed; this feature is geared towards helping action shooters capture hard-to-catch shots.

The new camcorders will also feature Panasonic's Intelligent Auto mode, a feature we've found to work very well in the company's digital still cameras. When turned on, Intelligent Auto mode uses a number of in-camera features working simultaneously--optical image stabilization, automatic scene selection, contrast correction, face detection, and autofocus tracking--to ease operation for casual users.

Both slated for a September release, the SDHC-only Panasonic HDC-SD10 will be priced at $550, while the hybrid-storage HDC-TM10 will cost $600.
