Panasonic's HDC-HS250 120GB Full HD Camcorder records in the beauty of HD while boasting top of the line features.

Should you run out of space, or simply want to record to flash memory, the camcorder also records to SD/SDHC memory cards which are great for uploading footage to the Internet hassle free.
