Panasonic HDC-HS60 Camcorder Review



The HDC-HS60 is part of Panasonic's new crop of mid-range camcorders for 2010. It boasts a 1/4.1-inch CMOS sensor, 25x optical zoom lens, and 120GB internal hard drive. The camcorder impressed us with its strong performance, but we expect a lot of good competition in the mid-range camcorder market this year.

The HDC-HS60 will be available later this year for $699.95. The HS60 is part of a series from Panasonic that includes the HDC-SD60 and the HDC-TM55.
