The Panasonic HDC-HS80 supports an SDXC memory card which is better than most video cameras that came out more than two years ago. Most small sensor size camcorders that are a similar age to it support an SD memory card. 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).
An SDXC memory card is actually the best supported memory card type amongst all similar spec camcorders that were released around the same time as the HDC-HS80.
A MicroSD (Transflash) memory card is the worst supported memory card type across similar types of video camera.
SDHC cards are DS cards with a higher capacity of up to 32GB.
