The Panasonic HDC-SD90 is a mid-cost camcorder. This camcorder's iA (Intelligent Auto) feature selects the most suitable shooting mode at the press of a button. This feature includes Face Recognition, which finds the faces of registered people (up to six faces can be registered) and optimizes the focus and exposure for them. The HDC-SD90 features a 1MOS sensor that can capture HD video at 1920 x 1080 resolution. With the addition of the optional Panasonic VW-CLT 3D Conversion lens, this camcorder is capable of capturing 3D. With the HDC-SD90, you can record to SDXC/SDHC/SD memory cards. This model differs from the lower cost HDC-SD40 model in that it has Touch Zoom (which allows you to zoom with the swipe of a finger), Touch Shutter (which allows you to take a digital photo by touching the subject on the screen), has a 40x zoom (for more detailed images than the HDC-SD40's 16.8x optical zoom, even with a far away subject), a 28mm wide-angle lens (which is ideal for shooting in tight spaces) and is capable of recording 3D (with the addition of the CLT1 conversion lens). This model differs from the higher cost HDC-TM90 model in that the HDC-TM90 has a 16GB built-in memory. The Panasonic HDC-SD90 camcorder is capable of both auto and manual focus.
