Panasonic debuts HDC-SD3

While the preceding SD1, only recently arrived in North America, the HDC-SD3 is already scheduled to ship in Japan on April 25th. The key advancement is the ability to record in H.264, a codec favored in HD video, particularly that used by Apple's iPod, iTunes and QuickTime. Owners can also record in standard MPEG-4, and in either case resolution has been raised to 1080i. A 4GB SDHC card is bundled with the camera.

Coming the same day as the SD3 is the HDC-DX3, which is in many ways the same product, but uses three-inch DVD-R/RW/RAM discs and drops H.264. It should sell at a reduced price of 140,000 yen ($1,191), compared to 150,000 yen ($1,276) for the SD3. [via Impress Watch]
