Panasonic HDC-TM700 review


Proper HD camcorders, as opposed to mini camcorders like Flip's Ultra HD, had a tough time last year. They were seriously threatened by the inclusion of HD video modes in many digital cameras, plus the poor exchange rate between the pound and the...

A brilliant camcorder with lots of manual options. It's easy to use, compact and produces excellent quality video.

Panasonic HDC-TM700


The high definition camcorder to beat in 2010?

First 1080/50p-capable camcorder ; High quality 35mm lens ; Excellent video quality


Overall, the HDC-TM700 produces a killer combination of consummate manual control and best-of-breed image quality. And with a price already similar to the outgoing models, you should look no further than this if you're in the market for a top-end HD...

Pansonic HDC 700 review: Pansonic HDC 700


Very good low-light video quality; full set of manual features; 1080/60p recording option.

Smallish, low-resolution LCD; coarse EVF; some edge artifacts in video; middling still photo quality.

The flash-based Panasonic HDC-TM700 and its hard-disk sibling, the HDC-HS700, stand out for their low-light video quality and broad set of manual controls. However, while the TM700 is very attractively priced for its class, the HS700 is not, and not...

Panasonic HDC-TM700 Camcorder Review


The Panasonic HDC-TM700 (MSRP $999) is the hotly anticipated successor to last year's HDC-TM300-our pick for

Best HD camcorder overall


The Panasonic HDC-TM700 not only costs less than its Sony and Canon rivals, but it can also do something they can't: It records in 1080/60p (progressive) high definition, which is smoother than its rivals' 1080/60i (interlaced) footage. Video...

Stellar 60p footage, great controls, costs less than rivals

Many editing programs can't handle 60p, smaller memory than its rivals, smaller LCD screen than rivals, some owners complain of fan noise
