Weighing less than 230 g, this ultra light Panasonic HDC-SD10 camcorder records full HD video to an SDHC/SD memory card. Don't let the size fool you – these camcorders are packed full of technology - including a high-powered 16x optical zoom, touch screen control, iA with AF tracking and Advanced O.I.S (Optical Image Stabilizer) assuring clear zooming by minimizing the hand-shake that often spoils zoom shots. It's compact size lets it fit into the palm of the hand, for anywhere, anytime recording of high-quality 1920 × 1080 full-HD images.
The 16x optical zoom of the HDC-SD10 is supported by the Advanced O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) function – an essential element to achieve clear zooming, as it minimizes the hand-shake that often impairs video quality while zooming. Panasonic’s Advanced OIS detects and corrects for hand-shake around 4,000 times per second and works with the high-powered optical zoom to produce clear, stable zoom shots. The new Active mode also extends the hand-shake correction range to allow the shooting of clear, crisp images while walking or moving.
The HDC-SD10 feature the iA (Intelligent Auto) function, which automatically sets the most suitable Scene mode according to the shooting conditions. These include Face Detection, which adjusts the exposure so faces are captured perfectly; Intelligent Contrast Control, which helps ensure proper contrast; and Intelligent Scene Selector, which determines the shooting conditions and automatically selects the Scene setting that will provide optimal results.
Both camcorders are also equipped with AF/AE Tracking, which automatically tracks a moving subject for consistently beautiful results. AF/AE Tracking, which was very popular in previous models, differs from normal auto settings in that, once the user touches a selected subject on the touch-screen - the subject can be at the centre of the screen or at an edge - and locks onto the subject, AF/AE Tracking maintains the focus and exposure even if the subject moves or turns to one side. This records the subject with the optimal AF/AE (Auto focus/Auto exposure) settings.
HDC-SD10's touch screen lets users operate a variety of functions by simply touching an icon displayed on the LCD. This allows intuitive operation without having to look away from the subject.
The HDC-SD10 is equipped with a video light and flash for convenience when shooting in dimly lit places.
To avoid missing critical shooting opportunities, when HDC-SD10 Pre-Rec function is on, the camcorder continuously records three seconds of images into an internal buffer memory. When the Record button is actually pressed, the three seconds immediately prior are added to the beginning of the clip.
