SD cards are cheap as chips these days. I have the Panasonic SD9 version (Paid £416 for it 8 months ago.) and you can play the recordings straight from a PS3. So I put em on a spare hard drive and plug it into the USB on the PS3 to watch them. Battery life on the SD9 is awesome too because it has no hard drive to run.

I've got the SD9 version and we took some video on Christmas Day (1pm-ish) in the lounge. It came out quite a bit darker than expected if that helps anyone. Not really used it that much to comment more.
#10
I'm considering to buy this camcorder, but have read reviews where concerns have been raised about the recording in low-light situations. I'm sure I read somewhere that the manual focus or something can be done manually, which overcomes this 'problem'. I would prefer having focussing done automatically, but I can live with that.

Does anyone have any codes for this though? Any cashback codes either, as SONY were giving away £60 cashback, and I'm sure JVC and Canon are/were doing the same, are Panasonic doing something similar?

thanks for the response, would really like to get one which does well in low light conditions, this camera looks fab though but reports do say its a bit dark in low light, may take a look at the sony ones.
#12
I miet try getting this at dixons, Maybe a bit cheaper
#13
Low light isn't great, but then no HD video cameras are great in low light just yet.
#14
I got one and the low light picture is not that great in fairness but the quality outdoors more then makes up for it. Awesome camera and the SD only version is super light as well!!
#15
I took one of these to the bike show and it was awesome, played around with it in pitch black on the motorway and it did remarkably well.

None of these pan very well but this will pan much quicker than the JVC full HD HDD model.

Great price!

isn't that for the non HDD version.............

I had this camera for 2 days and sent it back, that panning jag is very very bad, low light is very poor. I went for the Canon HF10 which is far better, with solid state flas or you could consider the HF100 that requires a SD card. Also the files didnt edit at all well on my PC, the canon files edit better. You need a good quad core PC, with 4gb ram and at leat 1tb hard drive as the HD eats everything up when you edit, so be warned.

Not brilliant. Most reviews mention the grainy effect when in low light and it's true. It only really affects it when the light gets poor. But in the lounge with lights on it is fine.
#19
I bought the Canon HF 100 today - which after £50 cashback and 5% discount effectively cost me £413isn for a far superior camcorder. :p
banned#20
it looks a bit ugly compared to the SD9, and the SD9 is only £375, with that £25 can buy a 32GB card which will last the entire cameras battery life, there is no need for a HDD when battery only lasts 2 hours lol, while you charge you can transfer files off it.

and how is this a deal when this is the normal price for it? lol

Well I cant find any other retailer that Ive heard of selling for this price. A couple of earlier mentions for some slightly cheaper prices, but nothing massive, whereas other reputable companies seems to be quite a bit more expensive.

I've gone for an extra battery, so to get the same capacity I'd have to spend more to get the SD9. Given the Camera wont be "on camera" I'm not too bothered how it looks!

I also have the SD( and I personally think it handles low light very well. Just a little pixelation. You are going to struggle to get a handheld camcorder that gives good low light, but i think that compared to my previous mini dv camcorder this is miles better.

The HDD facilty is an ireelvance anyway given the price of SD cards and who on earth wants to carry all their videos around on a cameras hard-drive - you wouldn`t dream of doing it with a DSLR so why do it with a video camera -think I`ll stick to my SD9.

May be too late for you, but Costco's latest offer leaflet has the SD9 listed at 298.99 including VAT (price valid between 19.1.09 and 2.2.09. That includes a 2 year warranty too.

For my usage I'd rather have a single large static storage, which I can top up with SD cards. Certainly not planning on keeping HD footage on there for more than a day after its recorded . Horses for courses really. I was going to go for the SD9 too, but couldnt resist a healthy HDD in for a better equivalent price (IMO)

Whereabouts was that - I couldnt find a Canon for less that 500 IIRC, which was what put me off. Thats a hot deal!

Panasonic have some new camcorders out early 2009 that have a 70x optical zoom. CES 2009

... Numbers, numbers LOL .... 70x zoom would need one hell of an awesome IS and AF :whistling:

Yes it is.

The discussion had veered away - to the price of the SD9. I merely pointed out the lower Dixons Tax free price for the SD9.

The hard drive would be more useful on a holiday because when you charge it up again your not worried about where you have put the SD cards etc. For this price its just a great product and you still get the SD facility too.
