#1
does this have the filming in low light problems associated with the hdc-sd9??


thanks
#2
just to add i put my money where my mouth is....bought one. ;-)
#3
from the review i read its improved on it and it should be as it's low light operation is lower than sd9's, but still the best image quality is with the canon, which uses a bigger CMOS sensor rather than the Panasonic's 3 smaller sensors - but you will have to pay 200 more for the canon.

I suggest you try it out.
#4
And at long last one with a viewfinder,
#5
looks nice... is this significantly better than sd9? I bought mine a month back from QVC and I've been well impressed....although i do note the problems in low light with the sd9 and most other HD cameras
#6
with regards to the low light concerns,check this out....

Curry's also have, in store only now, Canon HF 100's at £450.

Went and had a play with both and bought the Panasoonic.

Does the canon have a viewfinder.

No
#12
Cheers sprint i think no viewfinder is a big backward step no matter how good the camera is,In bright sunlight an lcd is useless.I'll take a look at the panny tomorrow.
#13
A viewfinder is a big plus.
I have the Canon HF10 which gives excellent pic quality.
But when you're in the Pacific trying to film dolphins on a bright sunny day, the results can be very disppointing as you just can't see the subjects (most filming was guess work).
Reviewers say that not having a viewfinder is not a big problem, but I notice that most of their reviews are carried out indoors.

I got my Panasonic yesterday and very please with it.

Having the separate viewfinder is very useful.
#15
Nice. Kinda wished I'd waited and got this, although I have no complaints really with my HS9 (the HDD equivalent of the SD9). I figured that these would be pretty expensive for quite a while after the release earlier this year - apparently I was wrong :(
#16
Can't seem to find it on the Currys site.
#17
Hi Guys,

Can you pl let me now where this is available in Currys store? I called up customer support and they said they cant find anywhere.
#18
This should be expired, it's no longer on the site.

I posted this deal 3 weeks ago. at the time they had one in Beckton Park in East London.

Used it a few times overall very happy with purchase and the quality out doors is stunning.

Review here of product:

http://www.trustedreviews.com/camcorders/review/2008/09/25/Panasonic-HDC-SD100/p1

They give it a 9/10, only let down by value ( which was £698 ).
#24
Generally speaking, Panasonic is an excellent make for DV cameras. I personally would not touch this camera for anything other than home use but for the market it is designed for im sure it will be fine. Just dont expect too much from it or expect it to be able to give the results of a semi pro camera thats all.
#25
Phoned curries, no more in stock anywhere. Expired!
#26
I enquired at Stockport Currys today at 5pm, according to their stockchecker, 2 of these were still available in Currys at Manchester White city! Stockport had 2 of Canon HF100 at £450, I bought one of them.

I don't find it to be a big problem personally. I was filming outside with a Sony TG3 on Sunday (which was a very bright day with perfect blue skies) and found the viewscreen to be fine. Sure it's not as clear as indoors but was still perfectly viewable. I guess it varies between viewscreens, but with the TG3 I was perfectly able to see my subject in bright conditions.
