In February the new SDR-SW20 from Panasonic gets available in stores. It’s a compact camcorder with a dust and water proof body and it can be dropped from up to 4 feet without taking any damage. The camera features 10 X optical zoom and a 2.7 inch LCD screen.
The camera stores video on SD and SDHC cards and a 16-GB SDHC card allows up to approximately13 hours of recording. The SDR-SW20 starts recording just 0.6 second from the time the LCD is opened, making it easier to catch those special moments that come with no warning.
The SW20 will be available in February 2008 with a suggested retail price of $399.95.
