    The H80 also offers the largest optical zoom on a consumer cam and in a bid to unleash the imaginations of the masses, there's also a straight to YouTube function for budding filmmakers.

    Human beings are naturally attracted to anything small and cute. Newborn puppies, Shetland ponies and Kylie Minogue all have their tiny proportions to thank for their general public approval. The same logic applies to gadgets - and with good reason. You don't want people questioning how pleased you are to see them when in fact you're just packing the latest technology. Here comes Panasonic's latest diddy video camera

    Here’s a £700 HD cam that manages to cram two formats into its modest frame: SD and HDD. Perfect for the high-def connoisseur who can’t make their mind up

    We were hoping for a big finale to the kit of 2007, but we didn’t expect one quite so, well, large. In the age of miniaturisation, there’s just no getting around the fact that the Panasonic NV-GS80 is rotund. The question is, who’s going to want something as large and outdated as this mini DV cam first appears?

    Panasonic's "hybrid" camcorder offers a choice of video recording to either internal Hard Disc Drive or high-capacity SD card media and, on first impressions at least, shares an outward appearance with several models in the JVC Everio G range of HDD camcorders.

    Along with its sister product, the HDC-SD5, the new HDC-SX5 is one of two new AVCHD camcorders from Panasonic that are designed to take advantage of our new high-def displays by offering the full 1920 x 1080 pixel high-definition resolution

    Panasonic's ground-breaking HDC-SD1, released earlier this year, wasn't the first video camera to allow HD video recording to truly flash media but it remains the best 3CCD HD solid-state video camera by a mile.

    The words 'small' and 'light' are frequently attributed to Panasonic's various camcorders, but with the S10 the company has gone one better and come up with what it claims to be the world's smallest SD camcorder.

    Panasonic HDC-DX1 review

    10  

    The HDC-DX1 represents Panasonic's first tentative step into the world of disc-based HDV camcorders, though its track record with cassette and hard-drive HDV camcorders suggest that this shouldn't be anything less than an impressive debut

    Having already dabbled its toe into HDV waters with the hard-drive HDCSD1, Panasonic is hoping to create something of a splash with the HDC-DX1, which captures HD footage onto DVDs - of the 8cm variety

    Even though high-def, DVD and hard drive all stand at the vanguard of a new digital movie-making age, there remains something comforting about the mini DV tape format, ensuring that the 'old fashioned' tape media will be going strong for a few years yet

    This new Panasonic model, the SDR- H20, marries both formats, HDD and SD, to create a camcorder with so few moving parts that it makes mini DV look like a Heath Robinson illustration...

    High-definition camcorders really do represent something to get excited about. The camcorder market has laboured in recent years to find an innovation or technology that could really yank consumers into stores

    While Mini DV still remains the digital recording format of choice, there are many people who are naturally graduating towards DVD. Many of these are relatively new to the camcorder world having simply skipped the whole tape era
