Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Easy shooting and viewing. When it comes to shooting videos, simpler is better. Flip a single switch to start recording. When you're done shooting, you can view your pictures right away on a DVD player. Whether you're recording a special event or just taking a few casual shots, the DVD Palmcorder camcorder is perfect for people who like to take it easy when they're taking videos.

VDR-D210 Highlights

Multi-Format Recording

DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, DVD-R DL, DVD-R compatible You can choose whichever type of disc works best with your DVD player or recorder. Plus, other features make for easy shooting and viewing:

Quick, easy operation The DVD camcorder automatically finds a blank section on the disc for recording. The index screen makes it easy to search for a particular scene. You can view, delete and edit quickly and easily.

Easy, direct networking When you finish shooting, just take the disc from your DVD camcorder and slip it right into your DVD player or recorder. There's no need to connect any cables and you can start viewing right away.

High-Quality Pictures

O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) Panasonic's O.I.S. minimizes the hand-shake that can be such a problem with handheld shots. Because Panasonic's system is optical, there is no image quality degradation.

Pure Color Engine The Pure Color Engine converts the CCD output signal from a complementary color signal into an RGB signal at an early stage and extracts the low-frequency luminance component from the RGB signal. This innovative engine also achieves truly superb color reproduction for high-zoomed pictures.

MPEG2 engine Panasonic's MPEG2 engine is a wide-range, highprecision engine that produces smooth, beautiful moving pictures. Because it precisely records the differences in each frame, it can render fast, complex motions with exceptional precision. The MPEG2 engine also uses the Variable Bit Rate system that Panasonic adopted for the high-end DIGA DVD recorder. Giving LP (long play mode) recordings nearly twice the resolution captured with previous Panasonic MPEG2 recording video cameras, this lets the DVD camcorder record clear, smoothly flowing pictures.

32x optical zoom This 32x zoom can fill the screen with even a distant subject. This lens is not only the powerful zoom offered in a home-use digital camcorder, it also features low distortion. And because it's optical, there is no quality loss -- you get the images in all their natural beauty.

Ease and Versatility

Large 2.7-inch widescreen LCD The large, 2.7-inch LCD monitor displays bright, clear images. You can see even tiny details. It's more fun to shoot and view images on a wide monitor, and it's easier to picture just how the images will look on a TV screen.

One-Touch Navigation for easy, intuitive setting and shooting With One-Touch Navigation, just press the center of the joystick to display an operating menu. The operations you use most often are right on the monitor, so it's easy to change settings or operate the camera without looking away from your subject.

Mode dial Just turn the dial and you're ready to shoot or to view the images afterward. Just rotate the dial with your fingertip to select the icon that corresponds to the mode you want.

Trilingual menu The menu can be displayed in any of the following three languages. You can switch it to view all menus in the language you prefer for easy, comfortable operation.

Capture crisp, vivid images, even in low lighting, with MagicPix Leave the light off. MagicPix gives you images with color even in dim lighting (1 lux). Light is gentle and easy on the eyes, so you can snap shots of sleeping children without waking them up.

Soft Skin mode When this function detects skin tones, it softens the focus in that area. This has a skin beautifying effect, which makes wrinkles and lines appear less noticeable. When turned on, this function makes blemishes and moles look less conspicuous, while preserving resolution in areas of the picture outside of the skin.

Instant LCD/EVF saves battery life When you open the LCD, the power switches on. Shut it and the power goes off. Pull out the viewfinder and the power switches on. Store it and the power goes off. Instant LCD/EVF reduces the time required for operating the camera.

This is a very nice 'palm'corder. I've put it through its paces the past couple of days. It does use more than just the Panasonic mini-disks . . I'm using Maxell. Their website says it will also use Sony and TDK disks. Of course, you can't play the mini-disk on an outside DVD player until you "finalize" the disk while still in the camera...just like if you were using a regular DVD Recorder. Then it played on both of my DVD players just fine. It pays to take an hour or so and read the book, which was very clear. The movies are clear and bright. I'm particularly looking forward to reducing the hand shakiness on zoom with the OIS. It did not have the capability of using a USB cable to go to a computer, or have a video light, but if I wanted those features, I would have bought the higher-end model. I'm very satisfied. Can now pass down my older 8mm camcorder to one of my children!

This is my first DVD camcorder and I am very pleased with its ease of use and quality of pictures! This is for the basic recording for family, vacations, kids sporting events! Not alot of extra frills on this one, which I find very user freindly; since in the past I've had alot of extra options on my camcorder I never utilized-except accidently!All you do is insert a DVD and push record(I found Sony DVD-R are the best).Its easy to use and you get a quality, clear picture and sound-image stabilization is a must as it eliviates the blurrs from shaking hands. The price is right,its small and compact,easy to use.The screen is also large enough to actually see what you are recording and the buttons are all secure so no accidental recording will take place.[...]

This is an awesome camcorder, especially for a first time user. It is very easy to use. The picture quality is awesome. I just got it so I'm still playing around with it. It also takes still pics, which is a good feature if something really cute happens and your camera is not handy, but I try not to waste my disc space on pics since I already have a digital camera. The only thing I do not like about the camcorder is you can't delete pictures or video from the disc once you taken them (like you can with a digital camera)or record over them. Once it's on the dvd it's there for good. Now if there is another dvd like a dvdrw that you can do this on, I don't know. I will look into it.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By J. L Schreiber on October 24, 2008
Sure this camera was good for 4 months and about 12 uses. Then when we used it the last time, the battery died. The camera shut down and we were never able to power it back up again, even plugged directly into the wall itself, bypassing the battery. I called Panasonic and they gave me some verification number and an address to get it fixed, they also said they'd send me some papers which I never recieved. I sent it to the service center and they just called me and told me that they need a flat rate of $211 before they even touch it! I only paid $198 for it. I am so mad, I cannot afford to give them $211! I am at a loss here. Why do these companies make junk! I will NEVER BUY PANASONIC AGAIN!

This item replaces a 14 year old camcorder. I was amazed at the ease of operation and the playback feature with sound just blew me away. Most of my camcorder use features my fantastic grandchildren and I look forward to many happy and memorable events to come.

I received this camcorder two weeks ago, but tried it out over this past weekend. It is very simple to operate and picture is great. I am glad I bought one, and would highly recommend this product.
