"My new camcorder"

I purchased this camcorder 2-3weeks ago after some serious scearching on the net to ascertain if this was the best on the market. It turns out its not just the best its fantastic! the recording quailty is superb even when displayed on an SD tv, the sound reproduction is brilliant. My only concern with the unit is the replay on the screen because it is such a small unit some of the controls can be difficult to use, but the menus are straight forward and my understanding of the unit is now prety good. My first experince of using the camcorder was at silverstone race track to watch the BTCC on a grey and misrebale day the play back on my SD tv was fantastic I can't wait for my HD tv to try it out!

Product Information : Panasonic HDC-SD9EB-S

Manufacturer's product description

Worldwide, there is a strong and growing trend toward large-screen, high-image-quality televisions and high-definition (HD) broadcasting. In line with this, manufacturers are transitioning to HD quality in all other types of video equipment too. Panasonic, consistent with its long-time position as a leader in the video field is proud to introduce an advanced full-HD 3CCD camcorder, the HDC-SD9. The HDC-SD9 offers full-HD 1920 x 1080 progressive recording (25 frames per second) to capture images with a richness and beauty simply not possible with previous consumer camcorders. Users can record motion images with the kind of film-like quality enjoyed in movies at the cinema. Even though there is a natural conflict between high image quality and a high compression ratio, the 17-Mbps bit rate of the HDC-SD9 gives superb image quality and motion response, while its high compression ratio enables one full hour of recording onto a 4-GB SD Memory Card (in HX mode) at full-HD resolution. The model also introduces such features as Face Detection and the Intelligent Shooting Guide, which make it easier to capture mistake-free shots. It also offers Panasonic's original 3CCD camera system, Advanced O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), and a Leica Dicomar lens - three technologies that team up to deliver full-HD images of exquisite beauty. Viewed on today's high-quality large-screen TVs, video clips shot with the HDC-SD9 are simply breathtaking, with vivid coloring, intricate detail and exceptional clarity.
