"They're compact and have manual controls, a zoom lens, and a video light, which is nice for the price of the Panasonic HDC-SD40, TM40 and TM41."
"When it comes to video quality, you're getting what you pay for."
"Panasonic's HDC-TM40, TM41 and SD40 are some of the cheapest camcorders you can buy with a zoom lens and manual controls. If you care about video quality, spend a little more money on another model; if you don't, buy the cheapest one of these you can find, adjusting for the cost of memory for the SD40."

The HDC-SD40 is Panasonic's entry-level 1MOS camcorder. It has many more manual features and - most importantly - a 16.8x optical zoom, which no pocket Internet model can boast. Image quality is reasonable for the price, and there's even a Power OIS optical image stabilisation system, to keep things steady when shooting handheld. The SD40 is not the absolute best budget deal on the market, but it provides the most manual settings at this price.
I bought this camcorder so I could capture some waterfowl hunting footage without having to break the bank. I'm pretty sure this camcorder will do just fine. It's so simple to operate anyone could do it. The image stabilizing feature (OIS) is my absolute favorite feature. It literally takes the shake of your hands out of the image so you get a nice smooth image while recording. This is a great camera for the money. Does it record movie quality footage, of course not but it does record very good quality footage that anybody should be happy with.
is a wonderful experience, is a very confotable camera, and easy to use ... the battery lasts long enough but what I like most is the soom 1200x with a very good image quality and all that na a very low price . this is very good video camera.
I was very pleased upon receiving the camera, battery charger, fire wire, and video cables all inside a very nice camera bag safely packed. I went online to read a pdf file of it's owner's manual. This gave me all of the directions I needed to begin using the camera. I took it to school and began using it on a student who is autistic. He will hopefully begin becoming more self aware of his actions because he can now see himself on the digital motion picture videos that I take of him. I'm grateful to find such a nice camera for a reasonable and affordable price.
Thank to the seller. We all appreciate someone giving up something as valuable as this camera for such a fair price. This is the way to purchase things.
