Panasonic HM-TA20 review: Panasonic HM-TA20


Panasonic's first attempt at a minicamcoder, the TA1 , was a mess. The video quality was OK, but it offered no advantages over competing models, had mediocre editing and sharing software, and felt cheap considering its near-$170 price. That's not the...

The Panasonic HM-TA20 has a comfortable, rugged design, easy operation, and just enough features to keep it competitive.

For a rugged minicamcorder, the TA20's screen and lens are largely unprotected. It has a narrow lens, and there's no 720/60p resolution option.

As rugged minicamcorders go, the Panasonic HM-TA20 is very good and definitely deserves consideration.

The Flip pocket camcorder may be dead, but its legacy lives on in rival products

Waterproof ; Shockproof ; Good video quality ; Good size ; Funky design

No optical zoom ; Video wobble issues

Despite the fact that Cisco recently killed off its Flip line of camcorders, other manufacturers are keeping the point-and-shoot video camera legacy alive.

Panasonic HM-TA20


Easy to use, and the attached USB adaptor is a definite bonus!! Don't really have to keep remembering to bring the USB connector.

Screen doesn't show the full scale - or is it just me not getting to grips yet with the menu?
