Panasonic introduces new full High Definition (HD) camcorders to its 2010 line, which includes three compact and stylish models, the HDC-HS60, HDC-TM55, HDC-SD60 - perfect for users wanting portability, without sacrificing HD quality. All new Panasonic HD camcorders feature a 35.7mm wide-angle lens, ideal for capturing a variety of different shooting situations, such as self-portraits, indoor group shots and outdoor landscapes. Panasonic’s three lightweight and stylish introductory HD camcorder models, the Panasonic HDC-HS60, HDC-TM55 and HDC-SD60 may be ultra-compact in size, but these models all feature a powerful 25x optical zoom.
Panasonic introduces three additions to its 2010 standard definition camcorder lineup - the Panasonic SDR-H85, SDR-T50 & SDR-S50, designed to be portable, durable and high-performing. These camcorders may small in size, but they have impressive features: a 33mm wide-angle and a long, powerful 78x ultra zoom - giving them remarkable range for capturing video both far and wide. Panasonic’s new camcorder models are packed with enhanced features to help make shooting quality video easy, including the new Active mode for the Advanced O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), helping to suppress blur even if the user is moving and when the powerful zooms are extended.
Panasonic releases world’s first professional full HD 3D camcorder in Fall 2010. The company will begin taking orders in April. Current 3D systems are large-scale setups in which two cameras are fitted to a rig in parallel, or vertically intersect across a half-mirror. Separate recorders are also required. In Panasonic’s new Full HD 3D camcorder, the lenses, camera head, and a dual Memory Card recorder are integrated into a single, lightweight body. The Panasonic camcorder also incorporates stereoscopic adjustment controls making it easier to use and operate. Engineering samples of the professional Full HD 3D solid-state camcorder will be exhibited at the Panasonic booth at the 2010 International CES in Las Vegas.
Panasonic, a leader in High Definition and digital video tech-nologies, announces two new SD Card camcorders, the waterproof Panasonic SW20 and the compact and ultra-mobile S7. Viewings and demos, including one that submerges the Panasonic SW20 into water, will take place at the 2008 International CES in Las Vegas from January 7-10 at the Panasonic booth #9405. “In the past, camcorders were most often used to record special events, such as weddings and vacations. However, camcorder usage has evolved, and consumers demand better technologies and have more versatile needs,” said Alex Fried, National Marketing Manager, Imaging, Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company.
Panasonic announces two new full-High Definition 3CCD cam-corders, the HDC-HS9, a hybrid model that can record to either an SD (or SDHC) Memory Card or its built-in 60-GB hard disk and the HDC-SD9, the world’s smallest and lightest SD card High Definition camcorder, weighing in at just 0.606 pounds. Both the SD9 and HS9, which feature new Panasonic camcorder technologies, Face Detection and Intelligent Shooting Guide, will be displayed at the 2008 International CES in Las Vegas from January 7-10 at the Panasonic booth.
