Expert Review

 

The SDR-H280 is a well-rounded hybrid camcorder that offers high-grade standard-definition video. It might not represent the best value for money when compared to Panasonic's other SD efforts, but it certainly offers the best video quality.

Records to both SD cards and inbuilt 30GB memory, high quality 3CCD sensors

Underperformed in dim lighting, lacks certain selling points found in its cheaper siblings, connectivity is a pain
