Panasonic HDC-HS200 review


Panasonic's HDC-HS200 is a powerful little package

Excellent pictures ; Generous features

Costly ; Could be more intuitive to operate

Despite its foibles, this is a brilliant camcorder that's well worth your money

Panasonic HDC-HS200-K camcorder


Full HD Panasonic camcorder with 80GB hard drive and advanced 3MOS sensor

Superb 1080p image quality, 10.6-megapixel stills mode, huge array of modes and features

No external audio, too expensive, manual modes are let down by user interface

When judged on video quality alone, the Panasonic HDC-HS200-K is an excellent camcorder that can match almost anything on the market. Unfortunately, its high price tag coupled with certain hardware omissions has slightly diminished its appeal....

Panasonic HDC-HS200


The Panasonic HDC-HS200 high definition camcorder can capture great-looking footage, and it's good value too.

So the Panasonic HDC-HS200 is capable of impressive image quality, and if you want the best picture, but probably won't use the manual features of the HDC-HS300 and TM300, it's a great-value compromise. If £700 is still pricey, Panasonic also makes a...

Panasonic HDC-HS200


The Panasonic HDC-HS200 is a Full-HD (1080p) camcorder with 80GB hard drive and SD card storage. Triple 3MP CMOS sensors allow for 10MP (interpolated) still photos, while a 12x zoom Leica lens, 2.7-inch touchscreen LCD with 1.6 lux low light recording...

Do you stroke your goateed chin while watching Austrian documentaries? Do you listen to opera with the lights off? Then this camcorder is for you – it’s all about the better things in life. Even the fact that it’s heavier and more expensive than its...

Panasonic HDC-HS200: beste Bildqualität, magere Ausstattung


Ein 1080p-Camcorder mit drei Bildsensoren, der auch noch 10,6-Megapixel-Fotos schießt und einen zehnfachen optischen Zoom mitbringt, klingt verlockend. Außerdem bietet der HDC-HS200 von Panasonic 80 GByte integrierten Speicher und einen SD-Kartenleser....

fantastische Bildqualität, sowohl bei Fotos als auch bei Videos ; viel Speicherkapazität ; intuitives Touchscreen-Interface

keine SD-Videofunktion ; schwer ; etliche High-End-Features fehlen

Zum Preis von 900 Euro gibt es nirgendwo eine bessere Videoqualität als bei Panasonic. Das Touchscreen-Interface des Camcorders gehört ebenfalls zu den besten, die der Markt bietet. Doch durch das Fehlen etlicher wichtiger Ausstattungsmerkmale hängt...

Für Sparfüchse - Test Info: Panasonic HDC-HS200/SD200


Mit dem HDC-HS200 (und dem bis auf die Festplatte baugleichen Modell HDC-SD200) hat Panasonic seinen aktuellen Topgeräten HS300/SD300 zwei besonders preisattraktive Kameras zur Seite gestellt. Gespart wurde allerdings nicht an der Technik, sondern an...

Panasonic HDC-HS200


The HS200 is a dumbed down version of the HS300, which is sold everywhere except Australia! Why. You can by the HS300 overseas for the same price, but have to risk the overseas warranty issues. Up until March09 Panasonic Australia had the HS300...

better than most

not the real deal - should be the HS300

Panasonic HDC-HS200


Well, I sat and waited to see if Panasonic Australia would realise their mistake and bring out the HS300. Nope! Luckily for me the Panasonic TM300 has now been introduced. Same specs as the HS300, but no hard drive. It uses 32GB onboard memory and...
