neilnogra's review of Panasonic HDC-HS60

Panasonic HDC-HS60

“A very Spectacular Camera”

Written on: 07/08/2011 by neilnogra (3 reviews written)

The Panasonic HDC-HS60 is a brand new full HD camcorder which packs internal storage galore as well as many other nifty features.

However, when less than £200 gets you a pocket-sized, YouTube-friendly movie camera like the Flip or even Apple's iPod nano, why would you want to spend over £500 on a camcorder – even one as crafty and compact as Panasonic's HDC-HS60?

Welcome to a conundrum facing not just consumers but camcorder developers as well …

The crux of the problem is that as established camcorder manufacturers make their conventional models smaller – though still rammed with features – they're asking buyers to make a decision on products that while not much bigger than pocket-shooters can often be more than twice the price.

Entering this fray is the HS60, a spec'd-up, Full HD (1,920x1,080) camcorder, which doles out the type of modes a Toshiba Camileo or Samsung HMX-U10 can only dream of, and which forms part of a three-pronged '60' series that includes the TM60 and SD60.

Movie clips are recorded, using the AVCHD format, to an impressive 120GB HDD.

With four recording settings this means there's the potential to record between 15 and 51 hours of video.
