Panasonic announces the full-HD HDC-HS9 camcorder in the UK


Panasonic today announced four new camcorders in the UK, two to join their high-def range, the other two to languish in the inferior standard definition range. Standard def, bah! Who wants it?

The two full-HD camcorders announced are the HDC-HS9 (pictured above) and HDC-SD9. Offering 1920 x 1080p recording, at 25fps and a 17Mbps bit rate, it features a 60GB hard disk, but you can also record onto SD or SDHC via the card slot. Oh, and did I mention it’s got an impressive 10x optical zoom too? That’s the best part, if you ask me…
