if u see my opinion i tell Panasonic SDR H60 is the best because, panasonic have 50x zoom where as Sony have 40x
panasonic have both optical and electronic image stabilization where as sony have only electronic image stabilization which is very necessary at that zooming level more over panasonic have 3CCD image sensor whereas sony is 1CCD, if u see the quality of the video definitely panasonic is the best,
all the best for choosing camcorder
which is better and why? if you own one tell me about it,need to purchase one or the other..
