Complicated

Frustrated Photographer, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera records good pictures and video. However, I feel it is complicated to use. Especially transferring video/pictures to my pc and finally to a CD.

It's 1080i, not 1080p

Quanyi, Amazon
26 December 2011
  • Summary: So be careful if you are expecting FullHD quality video on your LED screen. it will be 540p resolution on them. Although in theory the quality will be better on a CRT screen(Please see 1080i definition), I cannot actually find such a device to validate the claim. And also, do not expect it can catch fast moving object well. However, the price is good. I bought on $230.

Nice camera, terrible software

DCFusor, Amazon
28 November 2011
  • Summary: Reading over the other reviews as I did before buying, it looks like Panasonic let a few of these out the door with bad sensors - but not mine, it's great for what I'm using it for, which includes low-light operation to log some physics experiments. No complaints at all with the camera itself, though I don't use some of the fancy features like face or smile detection and can't comment on those.

No Auto lens cap

Worse than it's predecessor

Aubrey, Amazon
2 May 2011
  • Summary: Unfortunately the Panasonic HDC SD10 (TM10) we bought a year prior and for $100 less (the predecessor to this model) was stolen so we ended up buying this thinking that it would only be slightly better. Instead we've learned that Panasonic has only removed features. While the lens is slightly better the software is much worse and scaled down (Even though it's a newer version of the same software) and navigation on the camera (ie: changing the settings and other stuff) is...

Günstiger als Vorgänger, dafür auch kleinerer Sensor

Stephan M. "Stephan M.", Amazon
16 March 2011
  • Summary: Nachdem ich nun wochenlang die für mich richtige Kamera gesucht habe, kann ich auch zur HDC-TM80 bzw. Schwestermodellen HS80 und SD80 etwas beitragen. Gleich vorweg, ich habe die TM80 zurückgeschickt und freue mich nun über das Vorgängermodell HDC-TM60 (baugleich SD66 und HS60). Meine Ansprüche sind nicht kompliziert: Gelegentliches Filmen bei Freunden und Familie, Tonqualität sollte gut sein, auch die Bilder bei Zimmerbeleuchtung sollten noch gute Werte erzielen.
