Panasonic HDC-SD10 TM10 Camcorders



Another day, another HD camcorder but wait, this time it carries the tag ‘World’s Lightest HD Camcorder’. How Panasonic’s lawyers got away with that one for the Panasonic HDC-SD10 and TM10 1080p camcorder’s we’ll never know.

The standout features of these two hand held camcorders are the price and weight. At sub $600 prices, the Panasonic HDC-SD10 and TM10 camcorders definitely tick the cheap(ish) and lightweight boxes. On the specification front however they are more or less run-of-the-mill.

The Panasonic TM10 comes with 8GB of internal storage and a SDHC slot. The SD10 comes only with the SDHC slot which pretty much sucks. Apart from that they both share 1080p AVCHD video recording; 2.1MP still shooting;an inbuilt Optical Image Stabilizer; a touchscreen fold-out LCD; a three second pre-record funciton; and a 1.9-second startup time.

Price-wise the Panasonic HDC-SD10 will cost you $550, and $600 for the Panasonic HDC-TM10, both available from September.
