The SDR-S50 is a standard definition camcorder from Panasonic that is set for a 2010 release. The camcorder is set to be a portable, compact device that can withstand rugged use while still maintaining high-end features that are usually found in large video capture systems. A 33mm wide-angle lens is used by the camcorder and has an enhanced optical zoom of 78X; a Wide-Angle setting is also included to improve image capture quality indoors and while in tight spaces. The camcorder takes advantage of an Advanced Optical Image Stabilizer that significantly reduces blurriness caused by zooming the lens and by user hand movement, resulting in a sharper video. The SDR-S50 does not have any on-board or built-in memory and uses only external SD/SDXC memory cards for media storage and video files.
