Panasonic HM-TA20 review


The Flip pocket camcorder may be dead, but its legacy lives on in rival products

Waterproof ; Shockproof ; Good video quality ; Good size ; Funky design

No optical zoom ; Video wobble issues

Despite the fact that Cisco recently killed off its Flip line of camcorders, other manufacturers are keeping the point-and-shoot video camera legacy alive.

Panasonic HM-TA20 review: Panasonic HM-TA20


Panasonic's first attempt at a minicamcoder, the TA1 , was a mess. The video quality was OK, but it offered no advantages over competing models, had mediocre editing and sharing software, and felt cheap considering its near-$170 price. That's not the...

The Panasonic HM-TA20 has a comfortable, rugged design, easy operation, and just enough features to keep it competitive.

For a rugged minicamcorder, the TA20's screen and lens are largely unprotected. It has a narrow lens, and there's no 720/60p resolution option.

As rugged minicamcorders go, the Panasonic HM-TA20 is very good and definitely deserves consideration.

Le Panasonic HM-TA20 fait partie des très bons mini caméscopes durcis qui valent le détour.

étanche / tout-terrain, simple, bonne qualité d'image

écran et objectif semblent peu protégé

Bien qu’elle ne rivalise pas avec unvéritable caméscope HD, la qualité vidéo est au rendez-vous avec des couleurslumineuses et vives. Le TA20 propose 4 modes d’enregistrement (1080/30p,720/30p, 480/30p et 540/30p) qui donnent de très bons résultats...

Panasonic ha decidido que ya que no puede enseñar teléfonos móviles ni tablets, le hagamos un hueco en nuestra portada a base de nuevos productos de los que sí que sabes hacer. Por ejemplo, videocámaras. Pero esta vez nos han sorprendido con una serie...

El modelo principal es la videocámara Panasonic WA10, un modelo todoterreno con diseño de pistola que tanto nos gusta y que aguanta caídas y que la metamos en el agua a una profundidad de hasta tres metros. La tecnología de retroiluminación del sensor...

Denne type kamera skal man først og fremmest købe, fordi man vil tage hurtige billeder eller video uden alt for meget bøvl. Panasonic HM-TA20 overrasker dog positivt med meget høj billed- og videokvalitet, og så er det ekstra lækkert, at kameraet...

Meget skarp video, Nem betjening, Vandtæt

Decent HD video quality with usable sound, long recordings & good battery life - fair photos -Manufacturer says "triple tough" & "rugged" (but see below)

Glass filter over lens is VERY fragile!!!! Panaachronic website shows camcorder just slid into front pocket of jeans (they don't provide a case). It was in my pocket, with a home-made case & a handkerchief ... (Just like my mobile phone which is NOT...
