Panasonic SDR-S26 review

 

This ultra-lightweight, SD-card cam has a handy YouTube mode – but can its standard-def movies still tempt fans of HD?

Simple to use and dinky enough to fit in a jacket pocket, but low light shots can be grainy

Panasonic SDR-S26 review

 

This ultra-mini movie-maker packs in the lens power with its monster 70x zoom

Convenient SDHC card memory ; Built-in optical stabiliser ; Small enough to fit in a coat pocket

Files need converting to play on Mac ; Doesn't record in high definition ; Stills quality limited to 0.3 megapixels

Fun toy-like tool for web authoring, but is hard to use and short on picture quality

Panasonic SDR-S26 review

 

The Panasonic SDR-S26 is a rare beast - a sub-£200 video camera that is a 'proper' camcorder with a traditional form factor and a flip out screen.

In strong sunlight or well-lit interiors, the Panasonic SDR-S26 is highly impressive. It’s less so in dimmer conditions – what you see on the LCD doesn't necessarily translate to a nice, bright set of footage when played back on a PC. Nonetheless, this...

Panasonic SDR S26 Camcorder

 

One of the most talked about feature of camcorders has been the storage. From the old days of VHS we have stepped into the digital age. Still, we have a lot of choices, DVD, Mini-DV, hard-drive, SD etc. This camcorder is a SD memory model. The real...

Panasonic Camcorder SDR S26

 

Over the years Camcorders have got both smaller and lighter. The optical zoom has increased and in almost all cases they have got easier to use. However now with huge zooms have they become just impossible to hold still at or near maximum zoom?

red still camera and inverted green arrow. This is simply off, take movie, view movie, take still image, view still image. Very user friendly. Also on the back is a flip up door covering A/V output and DC input. The top has the wide angle/telephoto...

Panasonic SDR-S26-K digital video camcorder

 

Standard-definition flash memory camcorder with ultra-powerful 70x optical zoom

70x optical zoom, attractive lightweight design, novice-friendly iA mode

Poor night mode, 'Web Mode' is a poorly implemented gimmick

The Panasonic SDR-S26-K digital video camcorder is a solid performer in the standard-definition space. It offers an impressive array of features for the asking price, the highlight of which is its ultra-powerful 70x optical zoom.

An extremely compact camcorder that is much similar to the SDR-H90 in terms of looks and features.

Panasonic SDR-S26 Camcorder Review

 

We know you may be wondering why we're reviewing a 2009 camcorder when we're already a couple of weeks into 2010. Since most of the new 2010 models are still a few months from hitting the shelves, we felt there was still a considerable market for the...
