Best Buys : Panasonic HDC-HS80 Camcorder

Panasonic HDC-HS80

Panasonic HDC-HS80
The Panasonic HDC-HS80 measures just 60mm x 64mm x 109mm (W/H/D) and weighs a minute 265g. The camera records full 1080p video at an impressive 50 frames per second. Featuring a 120GB hard drive, the HDC-HS80 allows you to record up to 20 hours of video without having to decant to a PC. Battery life is solid with 2 hours of recording time from one charge. The HDC-HS80 also features a powerful LED video light, 3MP still image capture, 2.7” touch screen LCD and HDMI, Mini USB and composite outputs, enabling connection to most devices, PC and TV alike.

The Panasonic HDC-HS80 is a great camera to use – the button placement is intuitive and natural. The touchscreen is responsive and bright and due to its diminutive size – the HDC-HS80 is a joy to hold for long periods of time.

The two biggest winners on the HDC-HS80 are the zoom lens and optical image stabilisation. This is the highest level of zoom we have seen out of all our recent camcorder reviews and twinned with the brilliant OIS, you never have to deal with shaky camera syndrome again!

AVCHD format also meant that recordings were easy to get onto a computer and we were editing in no time at all.

The HDC-HS80 is small and has more features than you can shake a stick at. The lack of advanced manual controls may put some off, but for 90% of home movie recording the HDC-HS80 is fantastic.

  1. Panasonic HDC-HS80 takes video recording to a whole different level. This camera provides Intelligent Resolution Technology for images that are very sharp, high in detail, and without any blurry edges. It also includes an image stabilizer system which corrects blurring caused by hand-shaking. Thanks a lot.

  2. Technology has grown in leaps and bounds in the past few decades; hd camcorders, the Blu-ray, and 3d televisions? It's amazing.

  3. Camcorders are way more cost effective than normal cameras and so many reasons prove for it. These camcorders and their memory chips need to be purchased only once in its lifetime. These camcorders and memory cards are costlier than the normal cameras and films, but it is a one-time investment.
