Panasonic SDR-S10 Digital Camcorder

Panasonic has launched what it is claiming is the World’s Smallest SD Camcorder – SDR-S10.The Panasonic SDR-S10 uses SD / SDHC card for recording and comes with a 2GB SD memory card. The camera starts recording in just 1.7 seconds after the power is switched on. A water-resistant design lets you use SDR-S10 camera when it's rainy or snowy outside, or in places where you might get a little wet. The camera is even designed so you can hold and operate it when your hand is wet. The S10 is designed to resist damage even if dropped from a height of up to 1.2 meters. A new scanning technology allows the 2.7-inch widescreen LCD to show diagonal lines more sharply. The SDR-S10 with high-precision Panasonic’s MPEG2 engine produces smooth, beautiful motion pictures. The MPEG2 engine also uses Variable Bit Rate technology that Panasonic developed for the high-end DIGA DVD recorder. Giving LP recordings nearly twice the resolution captured with previous Panasonic video cameras, this lets the e.cam record clear, smoothly flowing pictures.

The 10x optical zoom Panasonic SD Camcorder – SDR-S10 is small enough to slip in a pocket or bag. Cool enough to take everywhere you go. This is one stylish video camera you'll never want to be without. You can freely adjust the angle of the LCD monitor for comfortable viewing no matter how you're holding the camera. The SUB REC button on the side makes it easy to shoot when you're holding the camera low. The buttons are laid out simply and logically for easy one-hand operation.
