Panasonic HDC-SD700 Full HD camcorder

 

The Panasonic HDC-SD700 is a Full HD camcorder that records AVCHD video to removable flash memory cards. With a retail price of $1499, it slots snugly...

Superb 1080p HD video performance, 14.2-megapixel still image mode, lots of high-end features for videophiles (including external audio and a manual focus ring)

A bit bulkier than competing flash memory-based camcorders, no inbuilt memory

The Panasonic HDC-Sd700 is everything that a high-def camcorder should be. It provides a wealth of advanced features for experienced videographers, while remaining very user-friendly for beginners. Without question, it is one of the best HD camcorders...

Panasonic HDC-SD700 review

 

The Panasonic HDC-SD700 slots snugly between the Panasonic SDR-H280 and the Panasonic HDC-HS700-K as the company's midrange offering.

De zomer staat weer voor de deur! Hét moment om een nieuwe camcorder voor de zomervakantie te kopen. Nu kun je voor minder dan € 200 een simpele Flip aanschaffen, maar als je jouw herinneringen écht van het scherm wilt laten spatten, dan ga je...

De Panasonic HDC SD700 is een prima camcorder voor iedereen die handmatige instellingen wil maken. De bediening is prettig, ondanks het wat kleine lcd-scherm, en de beelden zijn zeer goed van kwaliteit.

Anmeldelse: Panasonic HDC-SD700

 

Panasonic har længe været anset som en af de førende producenter af bl.a. videokameraer, og selvom mange digitalkameraer i dag kan levere en rigtig fornuftig videokvalitet, så er der stadig et mærke for dedikerede videokameraer, hvor det er video der...

Da jeg modtog Panasonic HDC-SD700 havde jeg ikke rigtig gjort mig de store forventninger, hvilket skyldes at jeg ikke har beskæftiget mig ret meget med dedikerede videokameraer, og slet ikke de lidt avancerede af slagsen.

Panasonic HDC-SD700

 

I vårt senaste test av videokameror saknas bottennapp. Men däremot skiljer det en hel del i prisvärdhet och hur enkla kamerorna är att hantera.

Test av Panasonic HDC-SD700 och Panasonic HDC-SDT750 (3D)

 

Panasonic har en 3D-version av sin prisbelönade HDC-SD700. Är HDC-SDT750 värd 6 000 kronor mer?

Superb bild.
