This little guy packs a optical punch
Panasonic is bringing out three new camcorders that have an insane 70x optical zoom. Two of them (the HDR-H80 and HDR-H90) use HDDs, while the SDR-S26 relies on SD cards. With great zoom comes a greater chance for shakes to ruin everything, so Panasonic is also tossing on some shake-reduction technology: “All three models also include an advanced Optical Image Stabilization (O.I.S.) system which helps reduce blur caused by a shaky hand and Panasonic’s proprietary Intelligent Auto (iA) technologies.”
Look for all three in April in a variety of colors – the HDD HDR-H80 and H90 will sell for $450 and $500, respectively, and the SDR-S26 will be cheaper at $330. Check out the gallery below for more of the HDR-H80, HDR-H90 and SDR-S26, or click Continue to view the full release.
