Panasonic HDC-SD60

 

The HDC-SD60 has a nice manual feature set and good performance, as well as solid video quality for its class.

Manual shutter-speed and iris controls ; Comfortable size ; Smarter-than-average autofocus ; Lens focuses relatively closely ; Decent battery life

Soft video ; Cramped, low-resolution touchscreen

Bad: Dont like the record button where it is, liked the center as in the sdr26 was. Dont like touch screens as finger prints on the screen in the sunlight make it hard to see. the manual controls are only a gimmick
