Panasonic HDC-TM900


Can Panasonic maintain its position as our favourite enthusiast camcorder manufacturer?

Comprehensive manual settings and enthusiast features ; Great image quality in most conditions ; Option for 3D shooting

No 24Mbits/sec AVCHD mode

Panasonic’s HDC-TM900 offers no revolutionary new features, now that 3D shooting has already started its journey to ubiquity. But like its predecessors it blends excellent enthusiast features, headlined by the lens ring, with supreme image quality....

Panasonic HDC-TM900 + VW-CLT Review


A splendid, almost unbeatable camcorder for 2D, but 3D performance with the adaptor is very disappointing

Roughly translated into English, that perplexing alpha-numeric sequence can be read as “an update of a classy camcorder with a 3D attachment bolted on”. Available as a package, the TM900 camcorder and

Panasonic HDC-TM900


Panasonic has a history of producing solid prosumer camcorders that deliver excellent video quality and performance, but have unexciting, functional designs. That tradition continues with the latest crop of models. Updates to last year's 700 series,...

Generally excellent video quality and a straightforward, if somewhat unglamorous, interface highlight the Panasonic HDC-HS900 , TM900 , and SD800 's capabilities.

Wonky white balance and lack of a built-in neutral density filter are the two biggest drawbacks of an otherwise very good series of prosumer camcorders.

Panasonic's trio of prosumer camcorders, the hard-disk-based HDC-HS900 and flash-based TM900 and SD800, deliver generally excellent video quality and provide the full set of manual controls and features advanced users want. But you have to be willing...
