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...

Panasonic HDC-TM300 review

 

A mix of Full HD, 10.6MP stills and 32GB flash storage make this Panny hot property. But is there a problem lurking in the shadows?

Stellar outdoor images and countless manual modes make this a fun camcorder to play with. Only low light ability let its down

Panasonic HDC-TM300 review

 

In 2008, we knocked the hard-drive-based Panasonic HDC-HS100 HD camcorder for its lacklustre 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...

Beyond those minor complaints - and they are indeed minor - the Panasonic HDC-TM300 is one of the best small HD camcorders we've seen. Its marquee features are its performance in well-lit conditions, its blend of automated and manual modes, and its...

Panasonic HDC-TM300 (Black) review

 

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

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.

Panasonic HDC–TM300 review

 

An excellent high end HD camcorder sadly let down a smidge by the touchscreen

Great pics, compact body and easy to use

Resistive touchscreen, below par stills

Panasonic HDC-TM300

 

The TM300 is a twin memory camcorder that records Full HD images either on its 32GB internal flash memory or an SD (or SDHC) Memory Card. A 32GB SDHC Memory Card can hold around 12 hours of recorded video clips (in HE mode). The TM300 can copy recorded...

It’s easy to forgive Panasonic for jumping clumsily upon the touchscreen bandwagon when the rest of this cutting-edge camera is so impressive. Great colours and a first-class lens earn it top marks. Panasonic HDC-TM300 is tagged with Panasonic...

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.
