The Panasonic HDC-TM80 High Definition PAL Camcorder (Black) provides HD recording to a 16 GB internal flash memory and to optional SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. In addition to the beautiful, future-friendly 1920 x 1080 high-def format and convenient flash memory recording, the TM80 comes loaded with a number of stress reducing shooting functions, digital still capture, and options for archiving, editing, and sharing.
Panasonic's Crystal Engine PRO and the 1/5.8" CMOS sensor form the heart of the TM80 - producing vivid, life-like footage with fast processing speeds. Other core features of the camera include a touch screen 2.7" (6.9 cm) LCD for intuitive control of the camera, a 33.7mm wide-angle lens, 42x Intelligent zoom, and optical image stabilization. All of these features work together to create clear, beautiful memories. And along with creating detailed video, the TM80 also produces crisp audio thanks to the built-in zoom mic and wind noise canceller. Without using an external mic, this built-in mic captures high-quality sound without added expense.
The TM80 also features a number of shooting controls designed to make shooting easier. Let these controls take the guesswork out of shooting, leaving you only with true-to-life memories, not headaches. Panasonic's Intelligent Auto, Face Recognition, and Pre-Rec are just a few of the ways you can capture each and every moment with ease.
When it comes time to edit, share, or archive, the TM80 presents multiple options as well. Utilize the in-camera Advanced Highlight Playback for fun montages of your scenes set to music for starters. When you're ready to take the footage out of the camera and share it with the world, the included HD Writer AE 3.0 software helps you do just that with simple upload to websites like YouTube and Facebook. Other options include the optional VIERA link or burning with a DVD burner.
