A great deal, posted over a week ago, but £30 cheaper now!!!!!!!
The new SDR-S15 is a stylish model with an ultra-compact, go-anywhere design. It offers a small size, light weight and superb mobility made possible by SD/SDHC Memory Cards, letting you shoot video with the same casual ease and carry-about convenience they enjoy with small digital camcorders. For occasions when in the past it may have seemed a bit awkward to pull out a camcorder, such as on short outings or business trips, the SDR-S15 is ideal.

Quick Start function
The Quick Start function allows the SDR-S15 camcorder to begin recording just 0.6 second from the time the LCD is opened and this around a third of the time that it takes for a camcorder that records onto DVD discs to start, making it easier to catch those special moments that come with no warning. All in clear MPEG2 DVD quality.


The SDR-S15 camcorder offers a function that simplifies the process of copying recordings from the Memory Card or hard disk drive to a DVD. Simply connect the camcorder to a VW-BN1 DVD Burner (optional) and press the button. No PC is required. A DVD disc created this way can be easily played directly from a DVD player.

Should be hot hot hot in here.

whats the maximum memory card you can put in this?

I'm very tempted to replace my old Panasonic NVDS27B would this be a good upgrade?
#3
Sold - great deal, been looking for one of these for ages and reviews are good. I've just bought an 8gb card as it said this is what other people had bought with the camera so am presuming (and hoping) that this will be OK. One review said that a 4gb card holds around 50 minutes of recording.

"The SDHC memory cards compatible with this device can now store up to 32GB, which equates to 26 hours of the MPEG2 format footage the camcorder uses."
A review from another site.
Am I missing something, nowhere can I find any mention of how many megapixels the camera is?

How does this compare to cameras such as the sanyo xacti?

From this review at PC Advisor. (Wish my wife hadn't bought me a Flip, I fancy this Panasonic :?)

Shooting modes are selected via the side-mounted mode dial. You can grab basic stills, though at a very poor VGA (640x480 pixels) resolution, as well as video if so desired. Dipping into the Panasonic SDR-S15's equally basic on-screen menu options reveals five pre-optimised scene modes covering common subjects including sports and portraiture.

I'm not sure why you would buy this over say an Ixus 100 - superb camera which records HD video to SDHC.
#8
Where can you get an Ixus 100 from for this price?
#9
Almost as good as the Medion HD 720p one from Sainsburys for £24.99 a few weeks ago.

Review from Which:

The SDR-S15 from Panasonic is certainly impressive to look at – it’s one of the smallest camcorders we’ve tested. However, this compact marvel is severely hampered by poor video image and sound quality.

Weighing just 188g, this is one of the lightest models we’ve seen. However, the trend for making camcorders ever smaller does have some drawbacks. In this case, the SDR-S15 is so small that it can be a little awkward to hold while recording.

Furthermore, there’s no viewfinder to help you compose your shots. This means you have to rely on the LCD monitor, which can be difficult to see in bright sunlight.

The small body of the camcorder has a knock-on effect for the sound quality. The tiny internal microphone does a poor job at capturing audio, leaving our testers unimpressed, and you can’t attach an external microphone to boost sound quality.

Worse still, the sound of the camcorder’s zoom lens in action can be audible when playing back your movies, particularly on quieter recordings. You can also hear the noise created by operating the SDR-S15’s buttons while recording.

The SDR-S15’s video image quality is also substandard. Colours are reproduced rather clumsily, with subtle distinctions between shades lost along the way. In both natural and artificial light, differences in contrast between shadow and highlight are poorly conveyed, and videos lack sharpness and detail.

The autofocus does a good job of reacting rapidly under zoom conditions, but with wider shots it struggles to find its focus quickly enough. In low light conditions, the autofocus is quite sluggish to react to as the camcorder pans across a scene.

The SDR-S15 is very quick to start up, but unfortunately the battery life is less than impressive, so you may have to keep an eye on the power gauge if you’re shooting at length.

Pros: Affordable, compact, good image stabiliser

Cons: Poor video image quality, sound distortions, tricky to hold comfortably

#15

#16

#17
which report not good id listen to them!!
#18
looks good for the price ordered.
cant realy trust the which review as most customer reviews are good
#19
Sorry, but am I missing something here, why is this being voted so hot? Resolution is just barely more than VGA and for £100 doesn't seem good to me at all. I bought the Panasonic DMC-LS80 compact posted here a few days ago from Sainsburys for £39.99, which has a very similar wide screen movie resolution and also shoots good quality 8Mp stills.

Hmmm, I just opened mine & tried it - not v impressed, picture noticeably grainier than my miniDV camcorder. Might follow up the Ixus 100 suggestion.
#23
