The Panasonic HDC-TM700 High Definition Camcorder provides true 1920 x 1080p HD recording to a built-in 32GB flash memory. The TM700K also offers up 14.2MP still image capture and the option to record to SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards.

The core of the camera, Panasonic's 3 MOS image sensor, is a 9.15MP (3 x 3.05MP) CMOS sensor which works together with the Lecia Dicomar lens, 3" touch screen LCD, and 18x Intelligent Zoom to record stunning images. Other features like Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) and microphone and headphone connections help enhance your video with stable images and high quality audio capture. In addition, the TM700 also comes equipped with a cold shoe mount, remote control, stylus, and a mini HDMI connection.

High-Density 1080/60p Recording
The HDC-TM700 uses the progressive method to record twice as much image data as the interlace method. Interlacing requires two images to produce a complete picture, while the progressive method records a single image as a complete picture. And, the 60 Progressive Recording of the HDC-TM700 produces 60 images per second. This extremely dense image information creates intricate detail and silky smooth motion. Even when subjects move quickly, afterimages are minimized to create more natural footage. The progressive method is most effective when shooting detailed designs where moire patterns tend to occur, or when capturing scenes during sports events where the subjects are in constant motion. Also, the recorded images are displayed clearly even when they are made into still images, so it is possible to preserve stunning photos when clipping them from videos
32GB Flash Memory and Memory Card Recording
The HDC-TM700 records to its built-in 32GB flash memory and to optional SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards for even more storage
3 MOS Image Sensor
Panasonic's 3 MOS image sensor has a total of 9.15MP (3 x 3.05MP) for capturing stunning 1920 x 1080p high definition video and up to 14.2MP still images
Leica Dicomar Lens
Panasonic HD camcorders use Leica Dicomar lenses, which are renowned for their ability to render sharp images and excellent shading. They also suppress ghosting, flare, and distortion at the image edges. Even in strong sunlight, these superb lenses maintain high contrast and resolution. A bright new F1.5-F2.8 lens with a 46mm filter diameter has been created for the HDC-TM700. Efficient light collection allows the new lens to capture bright, clear images even in dim lighting or at high shutter speeds. This high-end lens brings out all the beauty of Full-HD images
35mm Wide-Angle Capture
The 35mm wide-angle lens on the HDC-TM700 fits more people and more of the background into the frame than a conventional 44.9mm lens. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room
3" LCD Display
Record and review your footage with the generous 3" LCD display, an included stylus helps you navigate the touch screen menu options with ease
18x Intelligent Zoom
The HDC-TM700 features a 12x optical zoom and an Intelligent Zoom function that goes all the way up to 18x. When using Intelligent Zoom, Intelligent Resolution Technology lets you shoot at high zoom rates while preserving image sharpness. You get crisp images of highly detailed objects - without the blurry edges
Up to 14.2MP Still Image Capture
Capture brilliant still images up to 14.2MP in size when shooting in the 3:2 aspect ratio. When shooting in 16:9, otherwise known as wide angle, the HDC-TM700 is capable of taking up to 13.3MP photos. And in 4:3, the standard imaging size, the camera can capture up to 12.2MP photos
