Panasonic's quartet of entry-level HD camcorders--the HDC-HS60, TM60, TM55, and SD60--deliver a nice manual feature set and good performance, as well as solid video quality for their class. As long as you don't pay list price, the SD60 is a...

Mooie technologie dus onder de kap van de HDC-SD60 en ook de beeldkwaliteit is erg goed. Bij daglicht presteert de camera uitstekend, met prima beeldscherpte en goede kleurweergave. Ook binnenshuis bij kunstlicht laat Panasonic geen...

International Review By Clubic on 83

Le verdict est inévitablement positif pour ce HDC-SD60 qui ne déçoit finalement que sur très peu de points. En dehors de l'absence de mémoire interne ou de la mauvaise visibilité de l'écran en plein soleil (ce qui est certes plutôt gênant), ce...
