11 Reasons For

Panasonic Camcorders Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Panasonic video cameras and also specifically for Panasonic small sensor size camcorders and found that in both cases Panasonic had good ratings compared to other brands.

Very Big Optical Zoom

The average optical zoom of camcorders of a similar type and age to the SDR-T70 is 31x, and the optical zooms range from 10x to 78x. At 78 times zoom factor, the SDR-T70 has a very big optical zoom compared to most of the other video cameras of a similar age and type to the SDR-T70.

Chart Edit

Very Big Digital Zoom

The digital zooms of comparable spec video cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the SDR-T70 range from 1.5x to 3,500x. When compared to other small sensor size camcorders that have been around for a comparable time to the SDR-T70, the SDR-T70's digital zoom of 3,500 times zoom factor is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Has an Image Stabiliser

The SDR-T70 has an image stabiliser, as do most of the other similar spec camcorders that have been available for a comparable time to the SDR-T70.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative camcorders with an image stabiliser currently available including the Vixia HF M40, or the Legria HF R406 both from Canon which has better reviews.

This video camera also supports an SDHC memory card. SDXC cards are SD cards but with a much higher capacity and faster processing speeds. They have a maximum capacity of 2TB (Terabytes).

This camcorder's memory card type (SDXC) is actually the best supported memory card type amongst all camcorders of a similar age and spec to the SDR-T70.

The worst supported memory card type across similar types of camcorder is MicroSD (Transflash).

SDHC cards are DS cards with a higher capacity of up to 32GB.

The SDR-T70 has a built-in display, as do most of the other camcorders of a similar type and age to the SDR-T70.

We compared this camcorder to all the other camcorders with a built-in display and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic HDC-TM900, and the Sony HVR-Z7 ($5,775.99) is also worth considering.
