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.
