Panasonic SD9 Camcorder

What You Need to Know

  • As comfortable to hold as the tiny Panasonic SD9 Camcorder we reviewed
  • Weighs just under a pound
  • Most of the buttons are large
  • LCD controls were a bit clumsy, but the joystick worked well
    AV outs and SD card slot easily accessed
  • Records to both SD or SDHC card and built-in flash memory of 16 GB
  • 12x zoom is optically stabilized and works pretty good
  • All the usual manual controls but manual focus uses the joystick which is sort of tough
  • Auto-focus isn't the quickest we've seen but still good
  • Mini HDMI out, we wish it was regular HDMI like JVC
  • We took some footage at Coachella over the weekend; normal light looks awesome, auto settings have vibrant colors and great exposure
  • Low light is grainy as usual, but the amount of detail even in little to no light is astounding
  • Image quality is better than the JVC Everio GZ MG255
  • Ease of use is not as good as the JVC Everio GZ MG255; you have to use canon's software to play your videos on your PC
  • No drag and drop because it's MTS format, which Windows Media Player doesn't recognize
  • If you want better image quality and memory flexibility, buy the Canon
  • If you want seamless integration, buy the JVC

Price

  • Find it online for $900-$1,000
