Leo Laporte and the Panasonic HDC-SD5 video camera

Leo just posted a great video showing off the capabilities of the Panasonic HDC-SD5 video camera:

This isn’t a perfect example because it’s been edited in iMovie and exported as a 960×540 H.264 Quicktime movie. The original is higher resolution, but the size is too big to post. I suspect most people will end up using this size anyway.

Views of Vancouver 60 seconds: Download Quicktime – 27.9MB

As I’ve said before, I love this camera. It’s compact and takes excellent video. The optical image stabilization works very well. For example, in the video above, the sequence with the photographer and woman on the Vancouver bridge was shot handheld zoomed all the way out.

It looks really bloody fantastic (I know I’m not British, but I thought I’d belay the use of the f-bomb for this instance).  Check it out!
