Conclusion: Without seeking to labour the point, but it’s important to consider the HDC-TM10, and its sister product the HDC-SD10, in the context of the user for whom it’s intended. With that in mind, it’s surprisingly small and lightweight yet it hides a huge degree of functionality that could only have been dreamed of 10 years ago.
Summary: It wasn’t long ago that hi-def camcorders were bazooka-sized beasts, but the HDC-TM10 – the world’s lightest Full HD camcorder – shows just how far they’ve come. It’s a lot like Panasonic’s own HD-SD10, but rather than relying on SD/SDHC cards it packs a decent 8GB flash memory for storing your sparkling vids.
Excerpt: While it's not the 'lightest camcorder in the world', the new Panasonic HDC-TM10 does boast to be 'the world's lightest Full HD AVCHD camcorder'. Weighing only 280g, it shares this enviable accolade with its little brother, the equally dinky HDC-SD10.
