Overview
  • 1Description

The Panasonic HDC-SD60 High Definition Camcorder (Black) is an entry-level HD camcorder for those looking to break into high def recording without breaking the bank. The SD60 records 1920 x 1080i video and 5MP stills to removable SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards, using a 1/4.1" CMOS sensor as its engine. Tools like 25x optical zoom and 35 Intelligent Zoom, Power Optical Image Stabilization, and a touch screen 2.7" LCD screen all help to capture your footage with clarity.

When it comes to practical and user-friendly features the HDC-SD60 has a number of options that help to create beautiful and accurate video and stills. Face Recognition ensures that up to 6 faces in a shot are clear and in focus. iA (Intelligent Auto) also helps take the guesswork out of recording by automatically adjusting the camera to the right settings for the situation. You'll also benefit from features like Eco Mode, the Auto Power LCD, and others.

2.7" LCD Display
The 2.7" LCD gives you an accurate platform on which to compose and play back your video and still footage. Touch screen icons displayed on the LCD let users operate a variety of functions intuitively without taking their eyes off of the subject they are recording
35.7mm Wide Angle Lens
The 35.7mm wide angle lens on the SD60 fits more people and more of the background into the frame than a conventional 44.1mm lens. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room. It fits your subjects in even when you shoot from up close, and makes it possible to pick up even small sounds with the mic. It also gives you entirely new ways to enjoy your camcorder, like taking self portraits or capturing sweeping landscapes without losing the sense of scale
Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization)
The corrective ability of POWER O.I.S. has been increased by five times compared to previous models, allowing it to correct even slight hand-shake, something that wasn't possible with conventional O.I.S. Even high-power zoom shots, which are highly susceptible to hand-shake, now come out sharp and clear
Face Recognition
The Face Recognition function recognizes the faces of registered subjects, and automatically optimizes the focus and exposure for those special people. It continues to track the subject as he or she moves anywhere within the LCD frame, making it ideal for video shooting. It is extremely useful for capturing someone's face in a group. Names can also be registered and displayed on the LCD while shooting. A total of six people can be registered, and the names of up to three people at a time can be displayed in the shooting frame
Eco Mode
