Summary: Do not buy this camera. You cannot use it indoors. Quality is not HD unless outside in very bright sunlight. All indoor videos, no matter how good the lighting conditions are (even bright sunlight coming through a window), look splotchy like a damaged VHS tape. We are very disappointed.
Great Home Camera -- NEW EDIT: CAMERA BROKEN, AND NO SUPPORT

5 June 2012
Summary: This is a great camera for home movies or Youtube videos etc. I got it last Christmas, and have been using it constantly. I recommend storing everything on an SD card so that you can easily move it over to your computer (assuming your computer has an SD port).
Don't buy this "throwaway"-stopped working at 90 days old and repair cost higher than new camera
Michael S. Hanton "Zero Sum Game", Amazon
1 April 2012
Summary: This brand new HDC-TM41H Panasonic camcorder purchased at Amazon stopped working right at 90 days old, but was sent in 2 weeks after breaking (after 90 day labor warranty), and labor cost quoted to repair the camera was greater than the cost of the new camera!
Summary: Purchased this during the Black Friday sales and without a doubt it has been my best purchase from Amazon. Was delivered to Australia within 3 working days. Picture quality is fantastic, but it should include a HDMI cable with the purchase.
good shopping and delivery experience - bad product
21 December 2011
Summary: This is not a reflection on the product or the brand in itself - rather my own experience. We had a simple and easy shopping experience on Amazon, prompt shipping from the seller, however the camera would just not charge. Guess we got a bad piece or something.
Summary: My return label feedback is: This camera is _terrible_. It corrupts at least 1/3 of movies taken with it. Quality is very very low on those it does transfer. A Canon T2i from Amazon will replace this Panasonic & point and shoot. So - some people say that "for the money" this is a good camera.
Summary: I read some comments on amazon.com before I bought this cam. However, I found the comments are not useful. The Camcorder is very small and light, with poor video performance. It should be a good toy for kids.
Summary: Initally i got little suprise to see the size of the camera it is somehow smaller than the digital cameras in size and weight. Camera looks cool and operates perfect. The only thing i didn't like it i was expecting a battery charger which is external.
Summary: We needed a HD camcorder, but didn't want to spend a lot of money and this item was perfect. We use it to record kids' football games and this is very easy to use, both recording and uploading. The menu is very intuitive.
