Part of Panasonic’s new camcorder line up are two new ultra-small video cameras, small enough to fit in a purse or the pockets of a pair of cargo pants.
The SW20 is the larger of the two camcorders, though it is still small and light enough to fit comfortably in the one hand. It is waterproof and shock proof and sand proof making it ideal for underwater video capture or for use at the beach. Just be careful to lock the battery into place first, to ensure no water leaks through.

Both video cameras feature 10x optical zoom, with special modes and functions (e.g. an underwater mode in the SW20) to help users capture a better movie.
