First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

The days of lugging around a heavy digital camcorder are all but over. Panasonic's latest digital video camera offering is a featherweight, weighing in at just 400g (without battery) and with dimensions of 49mm x 108mm x 86mm - small enough to fit snugly in your palm, and easily stowed in a jacket pocket. The upright-style camera has a 2.5in colour LCD display, plus jet zoom (which provides 0.5-second zoom when in record pause mode), as well as a quick-start operation - so you can start recording 3.5 seconds after switching on the camera. Other features include playback zoom, multi-screen mode (to view still pictures) and picture-in-picture mode (to view a small still within the moving picture) as well as nine other digital functions for editing your video on the fly.
