Great camera Horrible software

W. D. Robinson, Amazon
14 March 2011
  • Summary: I use this camera to capture athletes sprinting or doing sports drills. I've focused on indoor and outdoor lighting plus fast motion. Overall, the quality of the video is fantastic. It does better with indoor lighting than my flip video camera.

Early Impressions

Rojohn "Redwing", Amazon

  • Summary: I have had the TM700 for only a day, so the jury is still out on the performance of this camera. Some of the initial footage has been terrific while other segments have been quite disappointing.

Things I didn't like

  • Summary: This is an awesome camera. You can read all the other reviews about just how great it is. Instead of singing its praises like everyone else let me tell you what I don't like about this camera. I have owned it about three months now and use it about twice a week. First the audio gain is a pain.

What you think of this camcorder depends on what you will use it for

S. Vogt, Amazon
3 August 2010
  • Summary: Let's start with the universal positives about this camcorder. The 60p option is obviously phenominal and no other camcorder can touch it in terms of video quality. The image stabilization is top notch. The menu system is very easy to learn and use. It's excellent for night and low-light filming.

A disappointment

Essar, Amazon

  • Summary: The cooling fan was the biggest issue for me. I took the courage to buy this despite the reviews warning of the fan noise. But as I had owned a mini-dv earlier, and was pretty ok with the tape noise, I went in for the TM700.

Excellent Camcorder. However HD Write Software needs work

Gadget Man "Phu Nguyen", Amazon
12 July 2010
  • Summary: The Camcorder is extremely good, very pleased to have bought this camcorder back in May 2010. Everything about the Camcorder is excellent and solid, very happy. I would have given 5 stars to this product, but the HD Writer software pulled back a couple of stars. I will explain below.

2 July 2010
  • Summary: I don't have much experience with video but the image quality, ease of use and portability are fantastic. The fan noise is, however, a real issue. It will appear as a faint background whine in any recording with low ambient noise, even with an external mic mounted on the camera (in fact the Rode...

Excellent Camcorder with one really MAJOR flaw

Amazon
1 April 2010
  • Summary: Panasonic finally released a 1920x1080p60 camcorder to the market (Sony still refuse to add Progressive and canon max out at 1920x1080p30 or p24) With the TM700 Panasonic did combine the smooth motion of 1080i60 with the crisp image of a progressive motion I can not praise the footage quality from...

TM700 - Expensive but good value considering what you are buying

PsychoDel..., Ciao
18 June 2010
  • Excerpt: I am not going to ramble through the amazing technical specifications of this camera, if you want that, have a look at the website. When I set out to buy a camera, I had only 2 criteria that needed to be met: 1> It must be idiot proof 2> The picture should look like the "Home Movies" people shoot in...
  • Pros: Amazing picture, amazing low light shooting, 1080p recording if you need it .
  • Cons: Expensive, crazy expensive spare batteries .
