Panasonic To Release Camcorders, Memory Card
Panasonic on Monday announced the impending release of a pair of new high-definition camcorders, meant to produce images for high-def TV. The HDC-SD5 and HDC-SX5 will both be released in September, as will a new SD Memory Card.
Both camcorders are capable of recording HD video on Panasonic’s 3CC5 camera technology, with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, as well as the new Optical Image Stabilizer technology. They also boast pre-recording functionality, the HP Advanced Pure Color Engine, and Playback EZ Sync.
The company calls the HDC-SD5 “the world’s smallest palm-style 3CCD Full HD Camcorder,” as it is even smaller than Panasonic’s previous HDC-SD1. The HDC-SX5, meanwhile, can record onto both memory cards and DVD discs.
