Released March, 2011
The Pros:Optical image stabilization noticeably reduces blurring especially at higher zoom ranges. One of the least expensive camcorders out there with OIS and this zoom range. Better video quality than expected for this price, clearer and crisper than many similar models.
The Cons:Poor quality indoors with low light, despite LED light. Battery life is shorter than many competitors, only about 45 minutes of shooting time per charge.
The Panasonic SDR-S70 is a lower mid-cost standard definition camcorder. Panasonic promotes the SDR-S70 as being able to meet almost every shooting need. The 33mm wide-angle lens of this camcorder allows a large depth of field for sharp images.

This lens makes shooting video indoors or in tight spaces more convenient by allowing more surrounding area into the frame. The SDR-S70 has an Enhanced Optical Zoom of 78x, which helps to ensure detailed images. The Advanced OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) feature of this camcorder helps to reduce blur when zooming (at a rate of 4,000 times per second). With the included Active mode, the blur will be cut even if you are walking and shooting. You can record video to an SDXC, SDHC or SD memory cards with the SDR-S70. This camcorder differs from the slightly higher cost SDR-T70 model in that the SDR-T70 offers color options (red, silver, black) instead of offering only black, and has 4GB of built-in memory (approximately 3 hours and 20 minutes of video in LP mode). The Panasonic SDR-S70 camcorder is equipped with the iA (Intelligent Auto) suite, a series of features (including Auto-focus/Auto-exposure) that automatically selects the appropriate settings for optimal video quality.
