Nice camcorder overall, not so great for low light!

reachvk, Ebay
8 September 2010
  • Summary: I got this on ebay last week, ordered from Japan, decided on this after extensive research before finalizing on the TM300 - I am happy with it in all respects except for its not-so-great low light performance. I had expected a lot with this one in low light, esp with the 3 MOS sensors that are said to separate the TM300 from the competition. Of course it is a lot superior to my 5 year old Canon DC40 DVD camcorder.

Good camera

apestates, Ebay
6 April 2010
  • Summary: Clear and sharp and easy to use. The still camera option is good because it does not stop the video when you take a picture. I purchased a 32gig class 10 card and it works fine. One thing I wish it had was the ability to also take standard 4:3 format video.

Very Easy to Use

  • Summary: What I like to most about this HDC-TM300S is the Auto Mode result, you do not have to do a thing besides pressing the record button... the camcorders always find the way to put the best setting available to get the most out of the condition.

Nice "B" cam

Jeremy A. Stone, Amazon
9 January 2010
  • Summary: This camera is a nice "B" cam, I use it for behind the scene shots, car mounting and time lapse work. It does need a TON of light, but most small HD cams do. So with this said the outdoor shots are amazaing, indoors so so. Indoors it just wants all the light it can get, so this usually means gain city = grain city. I don't like to go above 3 db of gain, if that's not possible I turn the cam off. Not worth the card space.

Only one on the market with viewfinder & flashmemory

Lab "Chocolate", Amazon
30 December 2009
  • Summary: Once I decided I wanted both the flash memory and a view finder there was no other choice at this level of quality. By pre reading the manual before I received the camera it was no effort to get started making movies and creating DVD's. The HDwriter, the software that Panasonic gives you has a lot to be desired and Tech support is little help when I wanted to save movies to a second hard drive but I figured out around about way to do it.

Very good manual controls

vectorizer, Amazon
16 November 2009
  • Summary: This is my first AVCHD camera, coming from Sony SD DV tapes, so it's hard not to be enthused about eliminating tapes and getting video that looks decent on a 100" projector. Besides the basic requirements (AVCHD & no hard drive), I was looking for a camera that performed well in automatic mode but provided thorough manual controls. My most important application is recording action on a football field under night lights.

Very solid HD camcorder and almost a 5.

Michael Doughty, Amazon
4 July 2009
  • Summary: I've had the Panasonic HDC-TM300 for a little over a month now and have had several occasions to test it out in a multitude of situations and exposure levels. Overall, I think the video quality is excellent. Indoor footage with incandescent lighting is a little noisy, but so is the same footage on every other camera in its class. I also considered the Canon HF S10 and eventually decided on the Panasonic for several reasons, which I will discuss later.
