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...

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

Panasonic HDC-TM700 Camcorder

 

It is unusual when marketing hype matches reality; more so when “full HD” is the primary selling point. After spending ten days evaluating Panasonic's recently released HDC-TM700, I've had a change of heart -- due in part to one new and one improved...

Panasonic HDC-TM700

 

A strong improvement on an already great formula, with a ludicrously low price for its value

Strong color & noise results; Good sharpness and motion in 1080p; Comfortable handling

Touchscreen can be annoying
