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: I bought this as a deal and used gift certificates to buy it,a great value. I have recorded video twice and it was easy to use. I have yet to download video to store in the computer or transfer to a dvd. I have always wanted one of these digital recorders, I am glad I have it
Quality camera, but AVHCD format is not easy to work with
Mister M, Amazon

Summary: 4.5 stars -- This camera shoots absolutely dazzling and very gorgeous video in HD in the AVHCD format. The AVCHD format is not easy to work with -- I use Final Cut Pro to log and transfer the footage.
