In test: Eight camcorders were reviewed including a mini camcorder and five HD camcorders. All were rated on video quality, photo quality, sound quality, operation and features.

Product information and further reviews

Top class update Video Kamera objektiv 7-8/2011 - ‘Refined product updates’ are the words you should use to describe Panasonic and Sony’s top models in 2011. The result are sophisticated devices which offer a lot for just under 1400 euros. Review details: Two camcorders were reviewed.

Panasonic HC-X900 The Gadget Show 5/2012 - Panasonic's HC-X900 camcorder supports 2D and 3D recording, as well as full high definition 1080p. Does it have any other good specifications?

3D for everyone! HiFi Test 2/2011 - The HDC-SDT750 had a successful début (reviewed in issue 6/10) and now Panasonic is back for more. On its own, the HDC-SD99 costs around 550 euros; together with its additional 3D unit (which costs just under 300 euros) you’re looking at an affordable 3D camera which is still well under the 1,000 euro mark. And best of all - you don’t need to decide right at the start whether you want to have 3D or not. For just over 500 euros you’ll be getting your hands on an outstanding Full HD camcorder which you can upgrade to a 3D bolide whenever you like.

Panasonic HC-X800 Expert Reviews 3/2012 - Bridging the gap between Panasonic's lower and higher end models is their XC-X800, which replaces their great HDC-SD800. Can this medium sized camcorder do as well as its predecessor?

Light Frame VIDEOAKTIV 5/2010 - In contrast to the top models of the 700 series, the SD 600 doesn’t skimp on image quality and also masters progressive recordings. Where has Panasonic made cut backs?

The Challenger Computer Video 5/2009 - We were surprised by a red hot test sample of the brand new HDC-TM350 which actually reached us after the press date. They are supposed to have three upgraded highlights in contrast to the SD300, which justifies the additional charge of 400 Euros: a 64 GB integrated flash memory, a completely revised optical image stabiliser and improved lowlight quality. Our ‘First Look’ tells you whether the Panasonic is worth its money.

Panasonic SDR-S26 MacFormat 5/2009 - The last few years have seen recordable DVDs try and replace mini-DV tapes, and the arrival of hard disc cameras. The end of this likely will be the rise to ubiquity of removable flash memory. Panasonic's SDR-S26 records to SDHC, but how good is the rest of the device?

Collecting memories video 10/2006 - Be it tape, hard disk or SD card: these three classy mini-camcorders don’t just impress with fantastic image quality. Review details: Three camcorders were reviewed and each rated “good”. Test criteria were image test, sound test, measurement laboratory, operation and features.

The rebel VIDEOAKTIV 6/2006 - Here’s a memory card camcorder that has the audacity to face off against imposing tape and DVD models. Is it just showing off or does its impressive quality give it something to shout about?

Panasonic HDC-SD9 - Full HD Camcorder TrustedReviews 2/2008 - A couple of weeks ago, we were lucky enough to get an early hands-on with Panasonic's new HDC-SD9. Now we've been sent one for a more extensive test. So here are our conclusions, and final assessment. First, we should reiterate that this is a very small camcorder. It only weighs 115g, and is less than 10cm long. You wouldn't quite want to carry it in a trouser pocket, unless you wear a particularly baggy variety or have rather large legs. But the incredible diminutive size of the SD9 will make you far more inclined to stuff it in a bag whenever you go out.

Two fancy mini models in a film duel CHIP FOTO VIDEO 10/2006 - Although JVC and Panasonic have both chosen to go for the tried-and-tested 3 CCD technology, they’re each experimenting with different data storage devices - hard drives and memory cards. The result are two exciting camcorders which are a mixture of old and new technology. Review details: Two camcorders were reviewed and rated 77 and 78 out of a a possible 100 points. Among the test criteria were image quality, ergonomics and features.
