Having an online subscription with ConsumerReports I checked the above article against ConsumerReports.
Reality: The Panasonic Model HDC-SD-1 was not even mentioned.

I have a subscription to both, which issue of the magazine is it, or was it only online?

Any pre-CES announcements about new mid-level camcorders?

There's still quite a gap between the top consumer models and the prosumer cams. I'd like to see something akin to the old GS400 - including zebras, focus and zoom rings, etc.

Hi George,

Sorry, my bad.

What I listed was for the Standard Definition Camcorders.
What you listed was for the High Definition Camcorders.

They are both there.
