The HDC-SD1 AVCHD SD/SDHC HD Camcorder is one of the smallest high definition cameras on the market. However despite it's small size the HDC-SD1 is impressively well equipped. Its Leica Dicomar lens, 12x optical zoom, 5.1-ch surround sound recording, and 3" LCD screen are just the beginning of the plethora of features Panasonic included on this sleek camcorder.

Panasonic included Optical Image Stabilization and takes advantage of SDHC memory card technology to give you the ability to capture up to one hour of 1080i on a 4GB SDHC card (included). The HDC-SD1 also features the HD Advanced Pure Color Engine, this is the same image processing circuitry found in every one of their award winning 3CCD camcorders.

With an ultra-fast 1.7 second quick start time and weighing less than a pound, the HDC-SD1 is the prefect camera to carry around with you wherever you go.

Three Video Chips
This camcorder comes equipped with three 800K video chips, ensuring the highest video quality. Record your memories with breathtaking clarity.
Dual Processing Engines
The HDC-SD1 has a Crystal Engine that renders highly precise, life-like colours, while the new Panasonic AVCHD Engine records in LP mode, at a level of recording quality that is almost as clear as standard SP mode.
Leica Dicomar Lens
With such features as a two-stage neutral density filter, the multi-coated lens on this camcorder adds a high level of detail to your videos and stills.
3" Wide LCD Screen
Need to shoot your footage with ease? The 3" LCD on this camcorder ensures that you won't miss a single detail.
SDHC Slot
The SDHC memory card is a higher capacity version of the conventional SD Card, the SDHC cards have the capacity to store an astounding 32GB at higher speeds than the standard SD cards.
Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS)
While a digital image stabilizer compensates for shaking by adjusting the picture frame by frame, an Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) avoids the shaking before the image is captured. OIS uses a a floating lens element that is moved relative to the rest of the lens, to maintain a balanced picture.
