Cheapest price around for this - use code to get extra £7.50 off price on site - and go through Quidco for 3% off again - this price is delivered.

If you have a Panasonic Viera link tv - this will hook up perfectly. These are much quieter in operation than DVD and mini-DV camcorders - probably the best value SD camcorder about just now.

The Panasonic SDR-S7 is designed to be a take-anywhere camcorder, being as small as a digital compact camera and having a quick startup time of just 0.6 seconds.

10x Optical Zoom
Brings your subject in close without needing to digitally zoom so retaining image quality.

High Quality Widescreen and 2.7" LCD Display
Records at the same resolution as true 16:9 widescreen for high quality playback on your widescreen TV. The 2.7 inch LCD monitor is also in 16:9 wide format for a large full screen image that is easy to view.

Pure Color Engine and MPEG 2 Engine
The Pure Color Engine image processor separates out image information at an early stage for better colour reproduction especially on zoomed images.

The MPEG 2 Engine uses variable bit rate technology and is designed to carefully monitor motion and therefore gives great precision and smoothness to action and sports scenes with complex motions.

Additional Features
Also included are the following functions for easier shooting:

* Pre-Record Function- Rmembers the three seconds in a "buffer" before you press the record button, ensuring you don't miss the action
* Power LCD- Becomes brighter to help viewing in bright conditions
* Colour Night View- for recording down to 2 Lux illumination
* One-touch transfer to DVD burners
* Easy SD card viewing on any Panasonic Viera TV with an SD slot.

I love her nail varnish!

That's not included in the deal!

I wonder how long a 8GB or 16Gb memory card would last

the quality of these camcorders are rubbish, you cant hardly film in low light and the recordings look no better than a normal digital camera when filming.

Can I ask what you base that on. I have a Praktica HD SD DVC and its great. Records 720p resolution at 30fps. Cost me 90 quid from price-drop.tv although it is Zennox branded it is the Praktica. Records 2 hours on a 4Gb SD card. Hook it up to my LCD via HDMI and the picture is almost as Live TV, albeit the sound isnt.

Just a quick note - I ordered this last night - and Quidco tracked at £3.63 - making the camera onlt £138.86.

To Toybhoy - from what I've read, you get about 3 hours on an 8gb card. I'm not a film maker, so I reckon that would do me - all I'd do is transfer the data to my pc and wipe the card. I only got it to take some footage of our baby that's on the way.

To scallygally - the reviews I've read state it produces good images in low light - it has a good lens on it apparently. I don't intend to film at night too often, so I'm sure it will do the job I ask of it.

I just didn't see the need to buy an HD camcorder, given the extra cash required and the fact many have had issues transcoding the images they get from them. My mate has a Pana HD camcorder, and his pc simply doesn't have the juice to encode the media - and it's pretty powerful. These are so much simplier, you can even burn straight to DVD if you feel the need - but I'm gonna watch it using Viera link to my plasma.

I have the waterproof version of this cam and its great. Easy to carry around, quick start up great daytime footage, evenings less so but its not £500.

Top quality setting gives about 1hr per 4gb.

The recordings are in a MPG format but the camera gives them a .MOV extension which you can change manually or use the excellent SDcopy programme found in the message boards of [url]www.camcorderinfo.com[/url] to batch change and also set the widescreen flag which some editing software doesn't pick up.

Unlike the HD cams run of the mill standard computer can play and edit this footage straight to DVD.

I have the SDR S10 and have been very pleased with it. Mine has been taken on the Jurassic Park ride at Universal Studios and is still going strong! My one gripe about the lack of screen rotation seems to have been addressed on the S7.
Hot!

I bought one of these for £180 and that was a good price 4 months ago. Its not bad at all. And works well with iMovie08. You get what you pay for and a bit more:
Go HERE to see the quality of stuff I do on YouTube - look at other vids by me as most were done with this Panasonic ...Cheers Y'all!

Seems a good price, but I'm a bit concerned by the comment saying they aren't that good in low light... Are there any reviews to support your statement?

Ta!

there's nothing in the reviews or anywhere else to support it.

Lone voice. your choice to trust a post like that or various reviews. lots of them around if you google

Does anyone know the resolution on this?

I'm thinking it needs to be 720p minimum by todays standards....:thinking:

'The Panasonic shoots ‘standard definition’ video at a resolution of 704 x 576' - basically DVD resolution - it's an SD camcorder as stated in OP, not an HD.

For an HD comparable product, you're looking at double this.

I read up on this last night and I never came across a bad review . I want one , but I already have three camcorders . I get "told off " by the misses for my buying impulses .
Why do companys keep bringing out new models ??? :-)

My mistake, I thought the SD would denote the type of memory card it uses.

Hi, although I haven't used this camera, I am with Scallgally on this one.

If this is anything like the Toshiba Camileo HD Pro, then don't bother if you want to use it in the house, at low light, or at any type of zoom beyond 1X.. talking of the Toshiba, it only had a 3X zoom, and despite all of the good received reviews on various sites, I found it so bad, I sent it back to Play and asked for a refund. It was only good for Youtube or fun video.

Thoughts, how many crony reviews are there out there? (quite a few in cohoots with the manufacturers)

My advice? go to Dixons or Comet, try out a number of cameras in real life, then buy them online afterwards.

Cheers

Problem is in the last two weeks I've been to comets, dixons and currys and none of them had batteries in their camcorders!!!
