Released May, 2008
The Pros:Easy enough for anyone to just pick up and start using. Picture quality is sharp, and the colors really pop. Audio is fairly good, generally can hear what people are saying easily.
The Cons:Battery runs down fairly quickly, can't do much more than an hour at a time.
Released in May 2008 the Panasonic SDR-H40 is a standard definition camcorder. The little brother of the SDR-H60, it records MPEG-2 to its 40GB internal hard drive or loaded SD/SDHC card. Still images are restricted by the camcorder's lackluster CCD, producing a maximum image resolution of 640x480 (0.3MP).
