Panasonic's new pocket/purse camcorder

The SDR-S15 is a sweet-looking compact SD-card-based camcorder looking to find a warm-and-cozy home in your coat pocket or bag.


Designed for spur-of-the-moment video capture, the Panasonic SDR-S15 announced Wednesday at CES 2009 seems to have the right combo of features making it worth keeping on you all the time.

For $299.95 you get a standard-definition camcorder that records to SD/SDHC cards, auto scene mode recognition and face detection courtesy of Panasonic's Intelligent Auto (iA), and a Web mode button that records video at settings making uploading to video-sharing sites easier (at least when paired with the included software suite). It also claims a 0.6 quick-start recording feature.

Available in black, silver, or chocolate in April 2009.
