Hdc-sc600p replacement

My sd card slot is now defective on my hdc-sd600 p unit. What is the best replacement for a new camcorder equal to my old one. I think it would cost more to fix it than to purchase a new one. Thanks DLG

I was really expecting that handycam type video cameras would have been displaced by mobile phones shooting video, but there are a few available still.

See https://www.sony.com.au/handycam

Possibly also from other manufacturers.

Re: Hdc-sc600p replacement

David - Hate to see one's old favorite cam that you know well die of an unnecessary death; however.... as with humans, there are what we call "prosthetic devices". You know, everything from hearing aids, false teeth, artificial limbs... and the list goes on.

Getting back to the cam problem, one way to extend its life MAY be to use a cam prosthetic device such as a "hdmi audio video capture card". Since the cam has HDMI output, check to make sure it has both audio and video output. If so, perhaps an inexpensive hdmi audio video capture card can be a workaround.

In the meantime, search for your next cam and this oldie-but-goodie can still be used, maybe for B-roll for situations where one wouldn't want to get the new cam wet, dusty, or whatever.

I'd be curious what new cam you actually end up with.

My only other thought was that, given the cam is otherwise going to be replaced, you could try and somehow clean the internal copper contacts of the SD card slot/reader with isopropyl alcohol. This issue may simply be that enough oxidisation had built up that one of those contacts no longer conducted properly.

Re: Hdc-sc600p replacement

Thanks for the input. I am looking at the Panasonic HC-V785. A little info on how I use my camcorder. I love birds and enjoy setting up the camera in my yard to see the different birds as they migrate through. I All so record sunsets and landscapes. I then use my photos and videos to make memory videos with music. Nature and Landscape Photography is my hobby. I have very high end photo cameras and really don't need high end video. I had been using my old video camera following a Cooper Hawk 3 chicks nest.

thanks david

Oh, don't say that. Why not try shooting high end video too?

Re: Hdc-sc600p replacement

Impressive web site. At A young 79, my video time is decreasing rapidly Lol. I did photos and video weddings for some close friends in the past and used that old Panasonic camcorder. Where the folks were please, I always felt stressful that the process would fail, so I stopped. Just looking for a unit similar to the Panasonic SD600. David

Re: Hdc-sc600p replacement

79, that's nowt! I'm now an octogenarian and still get out and about filming(videoing) birds and other wildlife.
Carting gear about and particularly up hill a pain, even with my MFT gear. Having sufficient attention span to get properly into colour grading and the like ditto.

My lightweight camera is a Panasonic HC-1500 which goes satisfactorily with a lightweight Gitzo tripod and a cheap but not bad Chinese made Neewer video head. Not an easy camera to set up and use properly,. English instructions read as if written by a non-native English speaker, which not unique this day and age I think.
