Panasonic brings two light HD cams to US

updated 09:00 am EDT, Mon June 8, 2009

Panasonic TM10 and SD10

Panasonic today brought two camcorders to the US that it believes set records. Both the SD10 and TM10 are deemed the lightest cameras to record 1080i in AVCHD (H.264) and each weigh exactly half a pound. Aside from being more comfortable to hold, either has a relatively long-range 16X zoom and an advanced optical image stabilizer that specifically extends the effect when the user is on the move.

The video cameras support live subject autofocusing and have touchscreen interfaces for many of their settings. Differences between the two revolve only around storage: both the SD10 and TM10 can use SDHC cards, but the TM10 adds 8GB of built-in flash memory. Shipments start in September for the camcorders, when the SD10 will come in black for $550 and the TM10 will cost $600 but have the option of a silver color.
