Panasonic has taken the High Definition route by unveiling the HDC-SD5 video camcorder that will fit in nicely into your HD lifestyle back home. Capable of using the AVCHD format to record full HD video with 1,920 x 1,080 pixel resolution, the HDC-SD5 utilizes Panasonic’s very own 3CCD camera system. Other features include a professional broadcast feature for razor sharp images and vivid color, Advanced Optical Image Stabilizer to minimize the detrimental effects of the jitters when recording, and compatibility with SD/SDHC memory cards. An 8GB SDHC memory card is capable of holding up to 180 minutes of video in full HD – I just hope the battery life is capable of lasting the pace when you capture the detail of every pimple in your family portrait. The Panasonic HDC-SD5 will retail for $999.95 when available.
