12 Reasons For

Panasonic Camcorders Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Panasonic video cameras and also specifically for Panasonic small total megapixels camcorders and found that in both cases Panasonic had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Very Big Optical Zoom

Across all the video cameras of a comparable spec and age to the SDR-T70 the optical zooms range from 10x to 78x. At 78 times zoom factor, the Panasonic SDR-T70 has a very big optical zoom compared to most of the other similar spec camcorders that were released more than two years ago.

The stabiliser compensates for any camera movement.

They have a maximum capacity of 2TB (Terabytes).

This camcorder's memory card type (SDXC) is in fact the best supported memory card type amongst all small total megapixels camcorders that were launched around the same time as the SDR-T70.

A MicroSD (Transflash) compatible memory cards is the worst supported memory card type amongst similar types of camcorder.
