Panasonic drops a couple of 3CCD DVD cameras

DVD isn't our favorite format for consumer video, but 3CCDs are better than one, so if you're looking into the DVD cams, you might want to give Panasonic's VDR-D250 or VDR-D300 a look. They drop for $900 and $1000 respectively, with 10x zooms and 2.7-inch LCDs, and the main difference between the two being the Leica lens and 3.1 megapixel pictures on the VDR-D300, with the VDR-D250 going 2.3 sans Leica.
