About this item

Panasonic's SDR-S70/K Camcorder is an entry level standard definition camcorder that helps ease you into video recording. Aside from featuring flash memory storage using the built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot, the S70 also has a multitude of user-friendly shooting controls that take the guesswork out of shooting video. And functions that are the new standard for video recording, like optical image stabilization and optical zoom, 78x Enhanced optical zoom to be exact, are also hallmarks of the S70. As are the 33mm wide-angle lens and a 2.7" LCD.

When it comes to those shooting controls the Intelligent Auto function takes the guesswork out of shooting. This function automatically selects the settings needed for a particular situation, allowing you to focus on the moment. Other controls that provide automatic control on the part of the camera include Advanced Optical Image Stabilization, Intelligent Contrast Control, Face Detection and many others. When you let the camera take over, there's no worry about getting the shot right!

Once you're done shooting and you're ready to share what you've shot, the S70 comes with Panasonic's VideoCam Suite 3.5 editing software. Not only does this software help you to edit your video, but it also helps you upload to social networking sites like Facebook and YouTube, ensuring that you'll get that unforgettable moment up on the web in no time flat.

Key Features

  • Enhanced Optical 78x Zoom and Advanced O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer): The new Enhanced optical 78x zoom has been added to the compact body of the easy-to-carry camcorder
  • 33mm Wide-Angle Lens and Advanced O.I.S.: The 33mm wide-angle setting on the Standard Series fits more people and more of the background into the frame than conventional models
  • Advanced O.I.S. with Active Mode: Advanced O.I.S. with Active Mode comes in handy when shooting while walking or playing with your children. The wide correction area corrects even wide-frame shots and relatively large hand-shake motion. It's especially good for active video shooting
  • Zoom Shooting: The effect of hand-shake is suppressed, resulting in a clear, beautiful image. The correction range is automatically adjusted to correspond to the amount of hand-shake
  • Wide Shooting: The correction range is automatically adjusted to correspond to the amount of hand-shake
  • Pure Color Engine: The Pure Color Engine converts the CCD output signal from a complementary color signal into an RGB signal at an early stage and extracts the low-frequency luminance component from the RGB signal
  • Zoom Mic: The Zoom Mic function that links with the camera's zoom action has evolved. Compared to previous Panasonic models, the noise-reducing performance is improved by 1/3 (-10dB). It lets you clearly record the sound of your target subject
  • Wind Noise Canceller: The Wind Noise Canceller automatically detects and suppresses only wind noise. It lets you capture natural sounds with lifelike ambience even when shooting in windy conditions outdoors or by the sea
  • Scene Mode: Automatically selects the most suitable shutter speed and aperture for the shooting location and situation
  • Soft Skin Mode: When this function detects skin tones, it softens the focus in that area. This has a skin beautifying effect, which makes wrinkles and lines appear less noticeable
  • iA (Intelligent Auto): This powerful function senses the shooting conditions and automatically makes the settings and activates functions that will deliver optimal results
  • AF/AE Tracking: AF/AE Tracking optimizes the focus and exposure for a selected subject to ensure beautiful results. After you "lock on" to a subject at the center of the screen by pressing the AF/AE button, the camera follows it around, keeping it in sharp focus and properly exposed
  • Advanced O.I.S.: When hand-shake is detected while shooting, the Advanced O.I.S. system is automatically activated to compensate for blurring and produce beautiful recorded images
  • Intelligent Contrast Control: By detecting the intensity of the ambient light and adjusting the exposure accordingly, Intelligent Contrast Control prevents blown highlights and blocked shadows
  • Intelligent Scene Selector: The shooting conditions are detected and the optimal Scene Mode is automatically selected. Even if the subject should change, there's no need to manually redo the settings, so you can concentrate entirely on your shot
  • Face Detection: This mode captures faces beautifully. Face Detection automatically senses the ambient lighting and adjusts the exposure accordingly, so faces are bright and easy to see
  • 1.9 Second Quick Power-On: Switch the power on and the camcorder is in standby mode in just 1.9 seconds, ready to shoot when you are. This fast startup also helps reduce battery consumption
  • Pre-Rec Function: This clever function records three seconds of images even before you actually begin shooting. The images are held temporarily in the camcorder's internal memory, before recording begins
  • One-Touch Navigation & Joystick Control: The joystick makes the camera much easier to use, letting you control all basic operations quickly. As you shoot, just watch the image in the monitor and follow the instruction guide
  • Auto Power LCD: The LCD brightness can be adjusted manually to suit the surroundings. In Auto Mode, the LCD brightness is adjusted automatically in 16 smooth steps depending on the surroundings
  • Color Night Rec/Color Night View: Leave the light off. Color Night Rec/Color Night View gives you images with color even in dim lighting (2 lux)
  • World Time: Handy for travelers, this function makes it easy to set the camcorder time when you cross time zones and again when you return home
  • Easy Editing: You can do some polished editing using just the camera itself. For example, you can delete scenes right on the spot or change the scene sequence to create your own scenarios
  • Easy Archiving: Recorded image data can be saved onto a DVD by simply connecting the camcorder to a DVD burner (purchased separately) with a USB cable and pressing a button
  • VIERA Image Viewer: If your VIERA TV has an SD Memory Card Slot and can play MPEG2 files, you're equipped for spectacular viewing. Just slip your card into the slot and get ready to watch beautiful motion pictures on VIERA's large screen
