Models with 70X   Ultra-zoom lens

  1. Hard Disk Drive (HDD) models: SDR-H80 and SDR-H90
  2. SD Card model: SDR-S26


Other Notable Features

  • Advanced Optical Image Stabilization (O.I.S.) system – helps reduce blur caused by a shaky hand
  • Panasonic’s proprietary Intelligent Auto (iA)


“Before today, traditional camcorder lenses could zoom up to 50x, but with the extra 20x our new camcorders provide, Panasonic is the first to offer such a powerful solution,” said Dennis Eppel, Vice President, Network Business Group, Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company.  “Panasonic understands that consumers sometimes need that extra zoom to truly capture dynamic colors, expressions and motions when the subject is far away, such as during an on-stage school play or sporting event.”
