Features

Compact Size and Cool Styling Small enough to slip in a pocket or bag. Cool enough to take everywhere you go. This is one stylish camcorder you'll never want to be without.

Capture Even Complex Motion with Precision Panasonic's MPEG2 Engine is a wide-range, high-precision engine that produces smooth, beautiful moving pictures. Because it precisely records the differences in each frame, it can render fast, complex motions with exceptional accuracy and nearly twice the resolution captured with previous Panasonic MPEG2 video cameras.

Pre-Rec Function Records Images Even Before You Start Shooting This clever function records three seconds of video even before you actually begin shooting1. The images are held temporarily in the camcorder's internal memory before recording onto the SD card begins, so you can capture that spontaneous event as soon as it happens.

No More Missed Shooting Opportunities with Quick Start The SW20 SD camcorder starts up to record quickly. In Quick Start mode2, recording begins in just 0.6 seconds from the time the LCD is opened. This lets you catch those sudden shooting opportunities.

Easy DVD Copying and Viewing The USB port allows you to connect directly to a DVD burner. And copying a recording from an SD card to a DVD disc is as easy as selecting from the menu. To view your video, simply take the SD card from the camcorder and slip it into any TV or DVD player with an SD card slot; there are no cables to worry about.

Edit Your Videos First, transfer the motion-image data from the SD card to your PC3 using your PC's USB port. Then with the included MotionSD STUDIO 1.3E software, you can easily put scenes in a different order, delete the ones you don't want, and add a wide variety of video effects. Save your results by burning your video production onto DVD.

1 The camcorder must be aimed at the subject in advance.
2 This mode can be selected from the menu.
3 Certain system requirements apply.

SDR-S7A is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 18667.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best ! ....small camcorder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera This is an awesome camera. Its great for a runner or a skateboarder, because of its light weight and compact size, but it still has nice picture quality and sound quality. Also, the tiny size of the memory cards don't effect the memory space or quality of the picture. This is a camera for the out-going person who wants to run or jump or ride.
