Panasonic HDC-SDX1Based on its features and shooting performance, the SDX1 promised an awful lot for an entry-level device, so it hard not to be disappointed by the entry-level video quality. But viewed as a whole, I wouldn’t sacrifice any feature for better video.

Ultimately, I think the Panasonic HDC SDX1 offers everything one could want or need in an entry-level device. It’s light, versatile, offers great shooting performance despite the so-so output, and the manual controls are just right for beginners looking to learn the ropes. It also pleases me to see some of advanced features Panasonic was touting on their high-end devices last year already making their way down the camcorder line.
