Crikey this does seem good value! I see from the SimplyAV review that they mention at the bottom that it has now been superceded by the HDC-SD9 so I guess Amazon are getting rid of old stock.

I've been wanting to get a solid-state camcorder for a while now and really like the Canon HF100 but it's £650 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Canon-HF100-High-Definition-Camcorder/dp/B0012B4XFO/

I'm not very techy so anyone know how they compare? :)

No external mic connection but still a cracking deal imo.

Ho-hum, still saving for that HF100 then.

Great price - I purchased the same camcorder from Comet for a similar price a month or two ago.

It is very light and compact, great quality shoots when there is sufficient light -it's not the camcorder to use if you mainly to shoots indoor unless you are happy to use provide extra light.

SD/MMC card format is very convenient for moving to the PC. You do need a reasonably powerful PC to view the images as they are in AVHCD format (and also edit them but I have'nt tried doing this yet).

The only real downside is the expensive cost of spare batteries.

In addition on the later model (SD9) Panasonic has moved the joytisck from an easy to use positon on the back of the camcorder for the SD5 to the the left hand side on the SD9. I have I read this makes it very hard to use.... therefore the SD5 may well work out to be better than the SD9 for allot of people - bizarre move Panasonic...

can anyone recommend a HD camcorder for lowlight (ie. gigs/concerts) ? I guess from afroylnt's comment above that this wouldn't be a good choice?

Tape based cams tend to have the highest bitrate recording and the best image quality. All HD cams suffer to some extent in low light, but something like a Canon HV20 will probably be your best bet.

It does not say anything about the free 4gb card in the deal :?
