Also comes with a redeemable voucher for either a free 3yr warranty or 16gb SD card, so even better value...

Does it state that on the QVC website?

I found the answer on QVC:

"Also included...To make things even easier for you, you'll also receive a voucher for either a 16GB SD card or a 3-year warranty"
#5
Voucher for 3yr warrenty well worth it too over the 16GB cards which are cheap enough anyway. Its very tempting i must say! Especially as it has 5.1 :-) Very nice.

Review at Camcorderinfo:

"If you're willing to skimp on performance in order to save some money, the Panasonic HDC-SD20 will offer you an incredibly intuitive user experience."

Don't forget Quidco at 5%. :thumbsup:

Copied from the item description page...

Edit: Just noticed you answered your own question...!

According to Panasonic:
‘Only purchases made in-store and at the time of demonstration qualify’, but they may have cut a deal with QVC!
Best to confirm that if the warranty is a deal breaker.

Just ordered this for hubby, thanks SCW x

What you save in money, however, you also sacrifice in video quality (poor sharpness,small lense,small sensor,dull, washed out colors and mediocre sensitivity in low llight,imprecise touch screen,less accurate and less vibrant colors than the competition,mediocre battery life and poor battery design,poorly placed microphone) <-- no point in having a HD camcorder without good PQ.

Personally i'd stick with a Canon HF10 or 100 if you can find one (its been replaced by the HF20 & 200 but the 10/100 is still doing the rounds)

Bowl me over with a feather !!
Good deal
Amazingly people have actually voted for a QVC deal. Bout time that people started recognising that amounst all the clutter they sell, they do do some very good deals. Dont automatically wroite them off because oof the supplier. \especially when they have such good customer service including a 30 use/trial money back guarantee.

Wow great quoting there of that review link:p

You have until the 30th June 2009 to claim your voucher choice.
#14
So other than this, what would be a good choice for an SD-card-based HD camcorder? Normally I'd stick with Canon or Sony, but this seems like a tempting deal too.

If you record at full HD 17mbps you get 1 hour video to 8gb SDHC card. Obviously if you lower the resolution = less mbps & less gb used (but I dont see the point in doing this!)

HI I just bought one for myself. I think this is the brilliant deal. I have been waiting for a good price for good HD camera for nearly 6 months. Initially I wanted to go for Canon HV30 but the price is far too high and doesn't do Full 1080p. So this one is the perfect for me. Special thanks to the poster.

By the way, how do I claim the free 3 years warranty or 16gb SD card?
#19
Total Pixels: 1.47 megapixels
Effective Pixels Motion Image: 1.17 megapixels [16:9]
Still Image: 1.17 megapixels [16:9]


Difficult to see how it's going to achieve true high definition when the sensor is just 1.17 megapixel.
#20
This is an excellent deal, voted hot. Just remember guys that your PC will need to be a bit of a beast if you plan to edit these movies.
#21
on paper this deal looks great. But be warned, this.camera has a crap sensor. Im holding out for a 3CCD model myself
#23
hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm............ telemarketing?

The short answer is that it's not true HD, i.e. there aren't actually 1920 x 1080 "real" pixels.

It does it by interpolating the horizontal pixels from about half of 1920 (a few more than half, actually, because of OIS) to the full 1920.

In other words, in layman's terms, it's guessing half the horizontal information!

It does however then record that full, but guessed at, 1920 horizontal "pixel" resolution, so they can claim full 1920 x 1080 HD. It's a sales trick.

nuabdi
the camcorderinfo link and the pansonic web say that its recording siystem is interlaced (1080/50i)


That's correct. it records 50 fields interlaced or 25 frames per second. So it is a 25 frame, 1080i format. So it is not 1080P!
#26
Ive got a Canon HF100 and must say its bloody brilliant. But for this sort of money its a good first time dabble in the world of HD camcorders and the 3 yr warranty is good too. If you buy a camcorder of Amazon by the way you can get the warranty upped to 5 years for under £30 which is great.:thumbsup:

Not sure what you mean exactly...

If you are trying to imply there is something dodgy about this deal or the way it has been promoted then please elaborate...

Looks good to me and QVC are a long established shopping channel, with years of retail experience and a huge customer base...

Please do your research before you make vague posts.

Having owned and returned the SD9 (the one before this) I would avoid. Image in a perfectly lit room is ok at best, outside is fine but in any lit room is absolutely rubbish.

I belive you're sent the voucher along with the camera, you then fill in and send to Panasonic. There will be electronic hours on all day to watch plus their interactive red button will let you watch the launch to your hearts content. Should get any info you're missing there. Or you can ring customer services , free number 0800 514131

You need to download the voucher from Panasonic’s website where it states:

[SIZE="4"]“Only purchases made in-store and at the time of demonstration qualify.”[/SIZE]

Best to check if QVC have a special arrangement with Panasonic otherwise I doubt if buying from them will qualify you for this promotion.
#31
Meant to post this last night, but you beat me to it. I have been looking around, and this is an excellent deal. Even by QVC's normal TSV standards this is a real bargain. H&R on its way. There will be live demos throughout the day on QVC for people who would like the full run down on this great piece of kit. I wouldn't leave it too long to order though as I think it will be very popular.

QVC have a very close relationship with Panasonic (I've bought Panasonic kit from them before). They will have cut a deal with them and I have no doubt whatsoever that the warranty voucher will be honoured. Call their order line on 0800 50 40 30 if you want to confirm this yourself (its freephone).

Maybe they'll class that as a live demo which will mean the promotion is good to go!

I have no link to QVC other than being a very happy long-term customer. I suppose I am starting to sound like a walking ad for them though. lol.

Please excuse the noobie question, but is this camera any good at recording slow motion, thinking about getting a camcorder for some sports coaching?

OVC and their Panasonic gut are stating it continually. The company is legit nad they're not allowed to say it unless the deal is too. That sort of thing will cripple them.
I know a lot of people on here really don't like QVC, but check your details first.

Thay have said a number of times it's a special deal for QVC the voucher is in the box and there's a number to call with your refernce at Panasonic to sort it out.

I think you’ve misinterpreted my intended tone. I have nothing negative or positive to say about QVC but just wanted to highlight what it said on the Panasonic site about the promotion. Companies often make mistakes in listings on websites so I thought it prudent to let people know what Panasonic state so they can decide for themselves if they wanted to phone QVC or Panasonic to double check. I was trying to be helpful. :thumbsup:

Good news. I assume you mean that the warranty/SD card promotion has been part of their TV advertising!

Is it worth paying £100 more for a true HD compact camcorder like the Sony HDR-TG3E?
banned#39
Is this better than the sd9?

There are links to a review earlier in this thread which I think compares them.

It's basically a low end camcorder judging from that review and you'll get better picture quality from one of the clearance deals that Curry's have at the moment if they still have stock: Samsung & JVC for £300 & £350.
