Summary: Fantastic product. As fan of Panasonic checking I check the range of products from this brand first and then compare selected with competitors. As at that time looked for 3 matrix camcorder for family to replace old Panasonic miniDV. Even when 3D already appeared on the market - we picked this non-3D model due good Price/Quality+Feature ratio. Used it for almost a year found it as great camcorder. Pros + 3MOS sensor + Optical Stab!!!
Summary: A very nice, compact, light camcorder. It comes with software for editing on a PC but if you have an Apple Mac it won't upload 1080/50 only AVCHD files. Software to do this has to be purchased and installed separately.
Summary: I created a music video using this camcorder. In the past I wouldn't have thought a camera this size could produce the image quality desired but having seen some examples on youtube, I was convinced the TM700 could do the job. I was also swayed by the Panasonic because of it's manual controls which other camcorders in the same price range were lacking.
