Panasonic puts HD recording in the palm of your hand with the AG-HSC1U HD camcorder. Thanks to the new AVCHD technology, this feature-packed recorder is one of the smallest 3 CCD camcorders on the market. The 4GB SDHC card can record up to 90 minutes of HD in the HE long play mode. The camera has an incredibly fast 1.7 second start up time recording directly to the card, so you don’t miss a thing waiting for it to come up to speed.

When you’re done, copy the recording to the included 40GB hard drive. Just stick the card in the slot and press the copy button. You can also play the recordings on compatible terminals through the included component video cable or the optional HDMI cable.

The images are shot through a Leica Dicomar lens set with 12x optical zoom and optical image stabilization. The automatic dust cover opens when you turn on the camcorder and closes when you turn it off. You never have to worry about losing the cap. The 3” LCD screen acts as a view finder and the screen for the one step navigation system. A 5-element microphone array acts as a multi-channel recorder in wide shots or an ultra directional zoom microphone when zoomed in on a picture.
