Panasonic 4GB Flash DV Cam

Multiple alternatives to the conventional tape now exist for storing video on DV cameras: each of them has its drawbacks, however. DVD isn't quick to write and isn't easy to store; hard drives solve these problems but add bulk and the risk of skipping. Flash storage is a relatively new option courtesy of rapidly falling prices. It isn't the fastest or the most capacious, but it can be rewritten many times and resists skipping. Panasonic's new SDR-S150 takes advantage of these benefits and may be a good choice for amateur videographers. It has an SD card slot that lets users store up to 4GB (or 200 minutes) of footage, with a 2GB card included in the box. The camera also uses 3 CCDs to help generate a quality picture. It ships in September for under $1000.
