Panasonic HDC-HS300 is a hybrid camcorder that records Full HD images either on an SD (or SDHC) Memory Card or the built-in 120GB hard disk drive. The HDC-HS300 features the Full HD 3MOS sensor, Advanced O.I.S, Face Detection, Intelligent Contrast Control, the Intelligent Scene Selector and so on which helps you capture and record perfectly.


Designed with the aspiring film maker in mind, the Panasonic HDC-HS300 HD PAL Camcorder (Silver) is the company's top of the line consumer offering for 2009. First off, you can record up to 50 hours of full 1920 x 1080 high definition video to the HDD with the option to store overflow footage to SD/SDHC memory cards. Capturing all that beautiful video would be the three 1/4.1" CMOS sensors which add up to total 9.15MP, named "3MOS", by Panasonic. The sensors also record 10.6MP stills and 8.3MP when recording both video and still images simultaneously.

Other features attractive to those looking to hone their video skills include microphone and headphone terminals, which are a must for getting high quality audio. In addition, an electronic viewfinder and manual control ring give you even more flexibility. Another plus would be compatibility with Mac for editing in iMovie. The HDC-HS300 rounds out its features with solid optics, including a Leica Dicomar lens, 12x optical zoom, and Advanced O.I.S.
