Panasonic AG-HSC1U review: Panasonic AG-HSC1U

 

Panasonic AG-HSC1U

High-quality 1080i video; tiny; easy to use; tapeless; bundled card reader/backup drive.

Impractical manual controls; lacks a viewfinder, progressive video recording, and headphone jack

Though it delivers good video with excellent color, the Panasonic AG-HSC1U falls short of its "professional" aspirations in most other ways.

Panasonic AG-HSC1U First Impressions Camcorder Review

 

The AG-HSC1U is touted by Panasonic as the smallest professional HD camcorder, and its $2099 price tag also makes it one of the least expensive. If, that is, the HSC1U is really a professional camcorder. The announcement earlier this year met with...

The AG- HSC1U is marketed as a niche camcorder for professionals, and despite the fact that it records AVCHD video, we think there is a place for this unusual camcorder. Specifically, the mechanism-less design means it should be capable of operating...

AVCHD Camcorder Review: Panasonic AG-HSC1

 

If you are looking for a small, and we mean really small, 3-chip high-def AVCHD camcorder with professional features, then you really have only one choice: the new AG-HSC1 from Panasonic. As it has features like three 1/4" native 16:9 CCDs and manual...

Very compact Manual focus, iris, white balance options External mic jack

Manual focus control is tricky. No viewfinder Access to A/C power jack and some I/O can be restricted when on a tripod.

Impressive performance and some pro-level features are jammed into a very small, palm-sized camcorder.

Panasonic AG-HSC1U

 

We expect the Panasonic AG-HSC1U to perform nearly identically to its consumer counterpart in all aspects other than color rendering because the camcorders are mechanically identical. Both are equipped with a 3-CCD imaging system that features 1/4"...

Panasonic AG HSC1

 

Panasonic has just announced a new device in their lineup of AVCHD camcorders. The Panasonic AG-HSC1 features three 1/4″ CCDs, all native 16:9, which sounds a lot like its sibling the Panasonic HDC-SD1. In fact, the AG-HSC1 is being called the first...
