Expert Review


All up, the Panasonic VDR-D310 certainly has number of limitations. But, provided you can accept these, its excellent video quality and the convenience of instant DVD burning make it a very notable DVD camcorder.

High colour accuracy for still images, Excellent video quality

Poor battery charging procedure, No headphone jack

Expert review by : Will Greenwald (

Panasonic VDR-D310


Featuring a 10x Leica zoom lens, 3CCD imaging system and optical image stabilisation, the VDR-D310 produces good-looking home movies without much hassle.

Solid video quality ; Optical image stabilisation

No video light ; Controls completely menu driven

The Panasonic VDR-D310 takes good-looking home movies and burns them straight to easy-to-watch miniDVDs. It's a good choice if you want pleasing footage without spending over two grand on high-def video. If you're willing to do without the convenience...
