Panasonic HDC-SD7

Panasonic Japan has a announced a future relative of the America-bound HDC-SD5, the SD7. The key difference is an upgrade to 1080p support, by comparison to the SD5's 1080i. It also uses a vertical orientation, and is said to be the smallest and lightest "full HD" camera in the world, weighing a mere 12 ounces even with a battery and memory card inserted. It will come bundled with a 4GB SDHC card, and record in the H.264-based AVCHD format. Ten-times optical zoom provides a range of 43-429mm. The SD7 should ship to Japan on September 8th, at a cost of about 140,000 yen ($1,175). [via Impress Watch]
