Released January, 2011
The Pros:Videos are sharp and vibrant, everything looks beautiful. Can get fast-moving subjects at a high framerate in 2D. 3D recording really works, get a great sense of depth.
The Cons:Need to make sure you get a larger memory card or they fill up fast. Missing any kind of built-in light or flash.

The 46mm F1.5 Leica Dicomar lens helps to produce bright images while cutting back ghost and distortion. Videos come out bright, with low noise, even in low lighting. The HDC-SD800 is also capable of capturing 3D (with the add-on of a CLT1 conversion lens). You can record to SDXC, SDHC and SD cards. The Crystal Engine Pro processor of the HDC-SD800 instantly processes images with defined detail. The optical image stabilizer of this camcorder helps to ensure that you will not have images blurred from camera shake. You can review videos on this camcorder's 3" LCD touchscreen. This camcorder differs from the higher cost HDC-TM900 model in that the HDC-TM900 is equipped with a manual ring (for more accurate video expression), 20x zoom (with Intelligent Zoom), five internal microphones for 5.1 recording, 32GB of internal memory and a 3.5 inch LCD touch panel display. The Panasonic HDC-SD800 camcorder is equipped with an Eco Mode, which automatically turns off the power when the camcorder is not operated for five minutes, reducing wasteful energy use and saving battery power.
