Panasonic HDC-TM300 Black Digital Camcorder Review
26 January 2010
Excerpt: 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 I disliked about those models, including the too-low-resolution CMOS sensors, connector placement, and how the manual controls function, and retained everything I liked, notably the breadth of manual controls and eye-level viewfinder, at...
Summary: 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.
Excerpt: Panasonic’s HDC-TM300 camcorder has been getting some serious plaudits in the review world and has been steadily picking up awards throughout the entire year, including Best Camcorder at the TR Awards.
Comfortable to hold, easy on the eyes, with impressive video performance.

Excerpt: 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, it still has the impressive video performance that drew our approval when we reviewed its hard-drive-based sister model.
The Panasonic HDC-TM300 camcorder is a good all-rounder suitable for amateurs and enthusiasts

Summary: The Panasonic HDC-TM300 HD camcorder is a great option for enthusiasts and amateurs alike. It combines user friendly controls with in-depth manual features, and is capable of taking excellent HD video. Highly recommended.
Pros: Excellent 1080p video quality, excellent still image mode, good manual + auto modes
Cons: Sub par LCD display, not available in Australia
Summary: Panasonic must be missing a kitchen sink judging by the new HDC-TM300. It’s been packed with every feature it could get its hands on, including Full HD video, 10.6MP stills, a 2.7in touchscreen and a not inconsiderable 32GB of flash storage. In case you didn’t guess from the price tag, this camcorder is very much targeted at moviemakers with serious ambitions.
