|This camera is very good quality and is worth its price, no more carrying discs or cassettes. Beautiful detail and vivid colors, the resolution is very crisp. SDHC storage is great, no need to worry about tapes anymore. Where to begin? The Panasonic HDC-SD1 is compact, lightweight, and accepts SD-HC cards (and includes a 4 GB to get you started).|

The larger the digital zoom magnification, the more the image quality is degraded. If you take your finger off the zoom lever during zoom operation, the operation sound may be recorded. When returning the zoom lever to the original position, move it quietly. When zooming in while holding this unit by hand, we recommend using the image stabilizer function. (l 59) When distant subjects are brought closer, they are focused at about 1.2 m (3.9 feet) or more. When the zoom magnification is 1k, this unit can focus on a subject approx. 4 cm (1.6q) away from the lens. (Macro function) The zoom speed varies depending on the range over which the zoom lever is moved. (The zoom speed does not vary when operating with the remote control.)

(If it determines that the flash is necessary, the [ ] indication lights up in red when the PHOTO SHOT button is pressed halfway.) If the  indication etc. flashes or is not displayed when the PHOTO SHOT button is pressed halfway, the flash is not activated. The available range of the flash is approx. 1 m to 2.5 m (3.3 feet to 8.2 feet) in dark places. Pictures will appear dark or reddish when they are recorded by using the flash at distances greater than 2.5 m (8.2 feet). Using the flash fixes the shutter speed of 1/750 or faster to 1/500. The picture may become out of focus in dark places. If so, adjust the focus manually. The picture may appear dark if the flash is lit in front of a white background. Set the flash to [FLASH OFF] where using a flash is prohibited. If the flash will be activated a large number of times, it may take longer to charge it.
The flash is activated 2 times. Do not move until the second flash is finished. Use this when you take pictures of people in dark places. Red eye phenomenon may appear depending on the recording conditions.

Panasonic's O.I.S. minimizes the hand-shake that can be such a problem with handheld shots. Because Panasonic's system is optical, there is no image quality degradation. When you're shooting a still picture, the MEGA O.I.S. system automatically activates, doubling the corrective power. With O.I.S. and MEGA O.I.S., HDC-SD1 is equipped for clear, beautiful shooting of both motion and still pictures. Using the zoom at full magnification, you can shoot macro close-ups while maintaining a distance of 60 cm from your subject. This makes it much easier to capture extreme close-ups without your body or camera casting a shadow on the subject and while keeping the background in soft focus. Distant subjects can be enlarged so they appear to be right up close. This allows dynamic shots of both motion and still pictures. This model offers the high quality wide images that make for beautiful, dramatic viewing on a wide-screen TV. The image is processed on 16: 9 area of the CCD. Because the image decoded has the same proportions as your wide-screen TV, there is virtually no picture quality degradation. You get beautiful images and all the excitement and dynamism on either a wide 16: 9 screen TV or a conventional 4: 3 TV. This model also features a high-density, 250, 000-pixel, wide 3.0-inch LCD, making it easier to frame shots when you're shooting in 16: 9 mode. You can enjoy shooting wide, and viewing wide. The joystick makes the camera much easier to use, letting you control all basic operations with one hand. As you shoot, just watch the image in the monitor and follow the instruction guide. You can handle a number of operations quickly and easily, without even taking your eye off the subject.
