Panasonic HDC-TM10 Camcorder Review

 

The HDC-TM10 ($599 MSRP), along with the HDC-SD10, represent the newest additions to Panasonic's consumer HD camcorder line. The camcorders are essentially more compact, repackaged versions of Panasonic's previous mid-range HD camcorders (the HDC-TM20,...

The Panasonic HDC-TM10 is a decent camcorder for what you pay for, but there are better mid-range models out there. Its sub-$600 price tag is attractive, as is the camcorder's wide range of features and manual controls. It also performed decently in...

Essentially a more compact, repackaged version of Panasonic's previous mid-range model

Low noise; Smooth motion

Awful low light performance; Poor sharpness

Panasonic HDC-TM10 review

 

It wasn't long ago that hi-def camcorders were bazooka-sized beasts, but the HDC-TM10 – the world's lightest Full HD camcorder – shows just how far they've come. It's a lot like Panasonic's own HD-SD10, but rather than relying on SD/SDHC cards it packs...

Without seeking to labour the point, but it’s important to consider the HDC-TM10, and its sister product the HDC-SD10, in the context of the user for whom it’s intended. With that in mind, it’s surprisingly small and lightweight yet it hides a huge...

As cute as it is clever, this kind of power and performance has no right coming in a package so small

Tiny dimensions, unfussy dual-format system, excellent results

Annoying file format, hard-to-press buttons

Consumer review by:

Small, lite, nice Camcorder

 

I got mine off ebay for 300 dollars and i love it. It takes nice video and it looks amazing on my high def tv. I think the colors look better on my tv then my laptop for somereason i'm not sure why. They appear to be more vibrant. ... Expand full review

Small ; portable ; built in memory ; inexpensive( I paid 300$ on ebay) ; Looks nice ; High definition

Low light it becomes more grainy then in daylight ; You can still take video at night no problem though it looks fine ; just maybe not highdeff

Good specs but poor low light performance

 

I wanted to love this camcorder after I found it for a great price and was happy with how it operated. But after hooking this up to my 50" Panasonic Plasma with a mini-hdmi cable that I bought separately I was disappointed with almost every shot. The...

Very light and compact. 8 Gb internal memory works well. Nice screen. Good pictures in bright light

I found the performance of this camcorder to be poor in low light. Unfortunately, low light for this camera turns out to be everything other than outside in the bright sun or inside with every light in the room turned on

Product Specifications

The HDC-TM10 is the light weight camcorder and offers fatigue-free use even for long shooting sessions. Its compact size lets it fit into the palm of the hand, for anywhere, anytime recording of high-quality, 1920 x 1080 Full-HD images. This compact camcorder can be easily slipped into a handbag or a pocket, ready to capture video images with snapshot ease. The high-powered 16x optical zoom clearly captures even distant subjects, while the advanced O.I.S. minimizes blurring. This stabilization function is essential for preserving Full-HD image quality when zooming, where hand-shake increases proportionally to the level of magnification. Advanced O.I.S., which detects and corrects for hand-shake around 4,000 times per second, combines with the 16x optical zoom to produce clear, stable zoom shots. And because the function is optical, there's minimal loss of image quality. Panasonic's advanced O.I.S. helps suppress the effects of hand-shake as you shoot, for both motion and still images. The Active mode also extends the hand-shake correction range to allow shooting while walking or otherwise moving. Its powerful corrective effect reduces the kind of hand-shake that often occurs when shooting on the move, to ensure crisp, clear images. The HDC-TM10 features the iA (Intelligent Auto) function, which automatically activates several convenient shooting functions. These include the AF/AE tracking, which automatically tracks a moving subject for consistently beautiful results. Once you touch a selected subject on the touch-screen and lock onto the subject, AF/AE tracking maintains the focus and exposure even if the subject moves or turns to one side. This records the subject with the optimal AF/AE (auto focus/auto exposure) settings.
