Panasonic HDC-TM300

 

In 2008, we knocked the hard-drive-based Panasonic HDC-HS100 HD camcorder for its lackluster video quality. But 2009 is looking up for the company, as the excellent Panasonic HDC-TM300 delivers some of the best still and video images we've seen from a...

Innovative, useful automated settings ; Good HD and still-image quality

No 30p mode ; Expensive

The Panasonic HDC-TM300 generates good-looking video and still images, allows deep manual control, and provides useful automated settings.

Panasonic HDC-TM300 (Black) review: Panasonic HDC-TM300 (Black)

 

Panasonic HDC-TM300 (Black)

High-quality video; solid performance; electronic viewfinder; full manual feature set.

Touch screen not responsive enough.

A very good prosumer HD camcorder, the Panasonic HDC-TM300 nevertheless has an annoying touch-screen interface.

Review: Panasonic HDC-TM300 HD Camcorder

 

Two-hundred-dollar pocket cams might advertise themselves as “HD” capable, but don't believe the hype: They typically yield 720p clips better suited to YouTube than the...

Reproduces colors like a Crayola factory. Closeups pop with sharp, clear details. Nice performance in low light. Einstein-smart automatic shooting features are like having your own DP built into the camera. 32GB onboard memory is expandable via SDHC...

Fast pans in bright daylight turns up more artifacts than a Mayan ruin. May require second mortgage

Panasonic HDC-TM300 Black Digital Camcorder Review

 

Panasonic's trio of top-of-the-prosumer-line HD camcorders--the flash-based HDC-TM300, and hard-drive-based HDC-HS300 and HDC-HS250--in many ways vastly improve over older models like the HS100 and SD100. Panasonic jettisoned most of what ...

Panasonic HDC-TM300 Camcorder Review

 

The Panasonic HDC-TM300 (MSRP $1299.99) is the flash memory equivalent of the HDC-HS300, which we reviewed earlier this year. Without the bulky hard drive, the TM300 has a slimmer profile that's more comfortable to hold and easier on the eyes. However,...

Like the HS300 we reviewed earlier this year, the Panasonic HDC-TM300 (MSRP $1299.99) is an excellent camcorder in nearly every detail. It has impressive video performance, boasting strong colors and low noise in bright light and low light alike. The...

Panasonic HDC-TM300

 

The Panasonic HDC-TM300 is the flash memory sister-model to the equally impressive HDC-HS300 (which records to an internal hard drive). These two top-of-the-line models from Panasonic are stellar camcorders, and the HDC-TM300, which includes 32GB of...

Part of the TM300's allure is its ergonomic design and comfortable handling. The camcorder doesn't have a large internal hard drive bulking up its right side, so when you grip it with your right hand it seems to meld perfectly into your palm. In...

Review: Panasonic HDC-TM300 HD camcorder

 

Panasonic's HDC-TM300 HD camcorder captures good video and still images, allows deep manual control, and provides useful automated settings.

Panasonic HDC-TM300

 

The Panasonic HDC-HS300 looked like a hard act to beat, but the HDC-TM300 is an even more desirable camcorder.

The Panasonic HDC-HS300 looked like a hard act to beat when we reviewed it, but the TM300 is an even more attractive package. The smaller video storage is balanced out by the reduced weight, and it's around £50 cheaper too. Although Canon's LEGRIA HF...
