Panasonic AG-HSC1
4.5 Star Review  videomaker.com - Dec 31, 1969

If you are looking for a small, and we mean really small, 3-chip high-def AVCHD camcorder with professional features, then you really have only one choice: the new AG-HSC1 from Panasonic. As it has features like three 1/4" native 16:9 CCDs and manual adjustment of iris, focus, shutter, white balance and mic input levels, we found ourselves forced to reconsider what really defines a "professional" or "consumer" camcorder. The AG-HSC1 records a 1080i AVCHD signal to SD memory cards and the new higher-capacity SDHC cards. The camcorder kit comes standard with a 4GB card and a 40GB external HDD for storage and transfer to a computer.

Panasonic AG-HSC1U
3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Feb 19, 2008

THE GOOD: High-quality 1080i video; tiny; easy to use; tapeless; bundled card reader/backup drive. THE BAD: Impractical manual controls; lacks a viewfinder, progressive video recording, and headphone jack THE BOTTOM LINE: Though it delivers good video with excellent color, the Panasonic AG-HSC1U falls short of its "professional" aspirations in most other ways.
