The HDC-SD9 is an evolutionary upgrade of the SD5. While the majority of changes are arguably minor, they combine to lift the camcorder head-and-shoulders above its predecessor, not to mention the majority of competitors.

Ultra lightweight design, stunning 'full HD' video resolution, improved battery/SD card arrangement, solid still images mode, Face Detection technology

SDHC media not cheap, no external microphone jack

Compact and lightweight; saturated colors.

Moderate to low-light videos look cloudy; some awkward design choices; smallish LCD with terrible color reproduction; awful bundled software.

Despite its trio of CCDs, the video quality and performance of the Panasonic HDC-SD9 are a bit too inconsistent.

Aside from providing a reasonably good range of video recording settings, the SD9 has a few manual controls to satisfy video enthusiasts. The video menu is straightforward and generally well designed, as shown i nthe illustration below.
