Panasonic has new HDC-SDX1 camcorder
Panasonic intends to achieve new records with their spanking new HDC-SDX1 camcorder, which is currently the world’s lightest full-High Definition (HD) camcorder. In order to make sure it picks up that title, it will come with an ultra-compact body that tips the scales at just less than 0.41 lbs. Apart from its stylish and lightweight design, the new Panasonic SDX1 will also sport a 35.8mm wide-angle lens, 23x Intelligent Zoom as well as the ability to double up as a webcam which allows you to use it for Internet video calls. Want to know more about this seeming wonder? Head on to the full post for the nitty gritty.
Apart from capturing down all your precious moments for posterity in full High Definition, the SDX1 also functions as a webcam with is microphone not missing out on a single sound or word from your side. This is made possible by hooking up the SDX1 to a computer, letting you enjoy face-to-face communication in a jiffy. For those who use Apple computers, fret not as Panasonic’s got your back. The SDX1 will support the Apple iFrame video format for smooth and easy loading and editing of image data on a native Mac machine. You can also upload video clips to YouTube or Facebook directly without the need to launch a browser. How’s that for convenience?
The Panasonic HDC-SDX1 is no slouch when it comes to performance either, thanks to a newly-developed HYBRID Optical Image Stabilization system (O.I.S.), an image stabilization system which will deliver optical and electrical hand-shake correction. The system will also help you out when zooming in on a subject, resulting in beautiful videos that you never imagined before. With the O.I.S. Lock button on the LCD monitor pressed, the blur detection sensitivity will kick in at maximum, correcting all camera movements in the process. Thanks to its Intelligent Auto (iA) mode, the SDX1 will be able to choose the most suitable of six shooting modes automatically with but a simple button press. Out in September later this year, the HDC-SDX1 will retail for $499.95.
