Bonus deal is from Panasonic, so use any of the stores included in the promotion.
Free 5 year warranty by redemption and also a choice of 10% cashback or 32gb Panasonic SD card. If you take the cashback
This is a pretty amazing deal for a camcorder that gets fantastic reviews.
The 5 year warranty is the clincher. I have had various problems with Sony camcorders just after warranty period, so knowing that this will last you 5 years is the sweetener.

The SD card is the RP-SDQ32GE1K which is a Panasonic class 6 32gb card, retailing at £100 on amazon.

You need to have demonstration of the camcorder and have the claim form signed I think, which makes online retailers not an option.
I will put the links in the first reply.

Looks like a good deal, voted hot. Now, i wonder if John Lewis accept shirt buttons?!

The 32gb SD card Panasonic provide is acutally rated class 4. I received mine 2 weeks ago. This still does the job though.

I know that the promotion has changed since August, so maybe that has changed too. The terms and conditions on the Panasonic website explicitly states that the SD card is the RP-SDQ32GE1K, which is a class 6 one.

If it said the same on last month's offers, then it is out of order for them to send you a class 4 one.

How do you find the camcorder by the way? I posted the deal, but was hoping it would lead to some comments on the camcorder to help me make up my mind. I am torn between this, the Sony TR7 which can be had for £350 odd at amazon, see here, or upgrading my digital SLR to one that can do video like the Canon 550d.

Your right mate, I just read the terms and conditions. But the promotion has changed from last month when I signed up. My original application does not state the model number for the SD card! Im not sure how much difference there is between a class 4 and class 6 card - anyone?? Would I even notice any difference?

The SD60 is a great camcorder. To be honest, I wanted the SD600, but couldn't afford the extra money. I really wanted something that would work well in poor lighting conditions (so the SD600 would have been a better option). However, I managed to get the SD60 for only £315 (plus quidco)from Comet in July, and the free SD card and 5 years warranty promotion had just started that month, so I decided to go for it (I didnt know they would extend the promotion beyond August) - but Im really happy with this camcorder. Plus, it works really well with the Veira-Link on my Panasonic TV / DVD unit. The free SD card is definitely the best option to go for, don't bother going for the 10% cashback of just £34!!

Im still getting used to the camcorder, and havent really begun to use all the features yet, However, I can tell you that the picture quality is excellent and so is the zoom! The reviews all seem to be good, so I don't think you can go wrong for the money.

I'm very interested in this camcorder. I want to use it mainly outside for recording sports-related events and have been using an ancient Panasonic miniDV camcorder with a black & white optical viewfinder. Can someone who has used the SD60 give me some idea of how useable the flip-out screen is in normal to bright outdoor conditions for following the action as the one on my old camcorder is next to useless. I've noticed that optical viewfinders are coming back into fashion but only on some of the high-end camcorders.
