The entry-level HDC-HS20 80GB Full HD Camcorder from Panasonic gives you high definition recording at an affordable price. Whether you want to record all the moments of your baby's first few years or show off your intimidating skateboard skills, the HDC-HS20 has solid features and the flexibility of hard drive and SD/SDHC memory card recording, which lends well to Internet sharing. If you're looking to do a little more with your memories, take advantage of the HS20's compatibility with Mac for editing in iMovie.
You don't have to worry about not getting that once in a lifetime moment, either.
The camera's Intelligent Auto (iA) mode takes the confusion out of recording by automatically adjusting for your specific situation with features such as Face Detection and Scene Detection. Other advanced features like the Leica Dicomar lens and 16x optical zoom give you an added edge.
