Summary: This is actually my first full fledged camcorder along with the HDC-SD900 model which I bought for some projects i am involved with. These cameras are THE BOWSE. I dont think anyone can go wrong with it. Memory management is key especially when taping in HD.
HDC TM 800 is the 2011 best value for money camcorder. 3 MOS are necessary!

Summary: Very good camcorder because 3 MOS CCD and Panasonic technology. If you have a lot fo money HDC TM900 is better in term of sound quality (5.1 instead of 2.1) and other things but TM900 has strictly the same image quality at a higher price !!
Summary: First, let me say I record video clips of only family and friends, like parties, weddings, candid moments, nothing extravagant. I previously used my digital cameras but over the years realize the noise and pixelation, especially when played on large TVs simply looked awful.
Summary: This camcorder has too many pros. It is very easy to use first of all. It also has very good image stabilization and picture quality. It works very well in low light which I find as the biggest pitfall for many of the camcorders I have used so far.
