Panasonic TM900 Full HD 1920x1080p, Great for stills also

Like many other reviewers i must complement the quality of output produced by this camera, it is superb. Great colours and very sharp. As a still camera it is also very good. This camera was bought for my wife who needed to get a piece of kit that would do both things very well. We have just come back from a holiday in a very sunny place and my wife was often using the view finder rather than the screen. I can understand this because i have a canon 50d still camera and always use the view finder, the screen only for menus etc. We both found that these screens which look great in lowish light are rubbish in very bright light, you just cannot see them. I mention this because most reviews of this camera say that the view finder is a ‘nice to have’, imho it is an absolute must to have.

Pound for pound i rate this one of the best small compact camcorders you can buy as long as you learn how to use it properly, however it can be used as a ‘point and shoot’ as well but it would be wasted by not using the array of manual adjustments for audio/video. I suppose i am biased as i now have two .

Excellent compact camcorder produceing superb quality stills and even better video. I am a pro camcorder user and rather than carrying a stills camera and bulky camcorder while on holiday i was looking for something compact mainly for video but capable of taking good stills this is a supberb unit with a full range of manual settings easy to navigate and i am well pleased with it. I chose this unit over the x model as it has the 32gb intrernal hardrive+ the sd card.

Panasonic tm900 a gem of a camcorder. I bought the panasonic tm900 a few weeks ago as a back up camcorder to my more professional kit for making artists video works about landscape and nature. Since receiving the camcorder it seems to follow me wherever i go, it is just so small and convenient to have around. As i am writing this review it is right next to me as i have been filming birds just outside my studio window. This sums up what is excellent about the camcorder, it it just so easy to operate, carry around with you and delivers stunning broadcast quality footage. I just don’t carry my bigger professional camcorders around because of their bulk so i was missing a lot of interesting footage. The image quality is stunning in the 1080 50p mode beating many professional models in decent light conditions. The leica lens is beautiful and the automatic and manual controls are superb giving plenty of scope to manually adjust to zebra warning or adjust exposure, focus or white balance. The intelligent zoom gives a nice 20x magnification which covers most requirements but a 1. 8 or 2 times tele adaptor would be brilliant if panasonic provided one.

The follower to the tm700 which camcorder. Info had at the top of consumer cameras 2010. This will be the ‘king’ of 2011. The camera has several stabilizers, so it feels just like you had a stedycam built in. The mode is automatic in this sample. It has wievfinder as well as a 3,5′ screen. The audio which you cannot hear at its full is 5. 1 ac3 dolby sound with a zoom microphone. You get the surround effect on your home video. Built in 32 gb memory and option of copying to sdhc or sdxc cards. The software is functional and can keep the original quality on the output file. It is imovie compatible on a mac except the 50fps 1080p option.

This is an amazing camera for video and still photography, swapping instantly between the two and also taking stills uninterruptingly whilst filming. I mostly video using a monopod and find the hybrid o. System a real boon especially in telephoto. I have covered the microphone with wind gag material using sticky backed velcro strips and this is very effective. I also use a rode videomic pro with additional wind gagging to great effect. The surround sound (balance is adjustable) is very effective and there are additional controls for sound which reduce effects of wind noise too. Controls are great as my hands are small but a large male with big hands may find them irritating. Using sd cards makes storage on camera unlimited and it automatically switches from a full sd card to built in storage whilst filming. Manual controls are very good with the focussing having a “blue fiz” system which is very accurate and easy to use. There is also tele-macro which is useful for those very close shots from a distance. Only concern is that, even with very slim filters, you cannot use the lens hood as it seems to pick it up in the frame corners when panning and using o. So using a haze filter for lens protection is less of an option. I recommend this camera to anyone as it is so versatile and having the option to film in full 1080 50p is almost to pro standard (although all my postings so far are using avchd to keep file size down). Its successor – hc-x800 – (but no surround mic apparently) has virtually the same spec so my recommendation covers it also.

Had this camcorder a year now using fuji class 10 sdhc, always thought it was spot on, but just used it with sandisk 16gb 45 mb/s sdhc, card maybe it’s my imagination but it seems even better.

I am more of a still man myself however i needed to record a continuise 45 min video had no alternative but to buy a camcorder i looked at the reviews this seemed to be the one. I must say i’m not in the least dissipointed the audio and video are great i did however buy a videomic pro not because the on board was bad just wanted more dynamics. The built in and sd card gives a lot of flexability.

I purchased this camcorder in 2011. I already had a panasonic hs9 camcorder and doubted that this could be improved upon – i was wrong. The 900 was better which, i suppose, you would expect (but don’t always get) for the higher price. It’s good in any light (well, almost). I am one very satisfied customer and recommend this product as being perfect for those who appreciate hi-def photography. I believe, that to improve on this camcorder you would have to pay considerably more.

Superb low-lighting and zoomed in. The use that i have for this camcorder may be in one of the worst conditions possible, as i record my wife as she trains and competes in dressage (horses). The target is always moving, quite often in awful back lighting conditions, zoomed in and out constantly, always hand-held for maximum flexibility, and finally quite often in poorly (as well as differently) lit indoor riding paddocks. This means that stabilization, auto-focus, and lighting is constantly operating in far from ideal conditions. The end result still comes out consistently as much better than the actual colors and lighting is perceived by the eye during the actual filming (i. When looking up from the display and comparing the results). This obviously implies manipulation beyond what the eye is capable of, but only in a favorable way as the weather and lighting always appear better than they were, the shaking (from freezing during filming as well as following a moving target) is significantly less than expected. The effects never get exaggerated beyond what would be natural under better conditions however, so the result does not feel over-the-top. It’s also really nice to have access to a manual and slow zoom next to the lens at the front of the camera, as two-handed filming becomes easier.

Panasonic hdc-tm900 impressed. When looking for a prosumer camcorder i ended up with only two options, it was the panasonic tm900 full hd 1920x1080p (50p) 3d ready camcorder – black (3mos sensor, 32gb inbuilt flash, sd card recording, leica dicomar lens and manual control ring) or the canon legria hf g10 high definition camcorder – black (10x optical zoom, 3. After going through many reviews i decided for the panasonic hdc-tm900, the various functions on the manual ring compared to the only focus control on the canon ring and the way panasonic uses a better algorithm to compress the images into file keeping more information just won me over. I bought the panasonic tm900 camcorder for my professional kit primarily for wedding videos, but also for broadcasting projects. Picture quality of this unit is simply unbelievable. Very natural colours and extremely sharp picture. The leica lens is beautiful and the automatic and manual controls are superb giving plenty of scope to manually adjust: zebra warning, exposure adjustment, focus and white balance. The intelligent zoom gives a 20x magnification which covers most requirements. Macro works very well and is easy to focus up.

High quality camera but no slo-mo and low light performance is poor. Truely amazing hd quality images captured but disappointing not to have better low light performance and no slo motion capture at all. Easy to use, light and well made. For a 14mega pixel still camera the images are not that great.

Excellent high-end camcorder. I’m very satisfied with the tm900. It lives up to the good reviews i read about it. It is light, easy to use, very powerful in terms of the number of features and its resolution. Still photos are excellent too. Works well in fairly low light conditions. The software for transferring video to a pc and playing it is quite flexible too. I bought a lowepro clips 110 camcorder bag for it. It’s a snug fit but has pockets for the various cables etc so is ideal if you want the smallest convenient bag. All in all, i highly recommend the tm900.

Got my product delivered to ireland in 3 days. Excellent service by amazon. I really was amazed at the quality of the footage when recording in 1080p 50. It was even better than satellite broadcast tv. The sound, when played through my sony surround sound system is fantastic. I could not hear any noise from the fan (even in silent rooms). However, in windy situations the sound quality is severely interfered with. I have only recorded so far in full hd. I have yet to try the other modes but i can assume they are every bit as good as anything else on the market.
