The HD 40 Series offers low power consumption of 2.5W, and lets you shoot continuously for approximately 135 minutes with a single battery charge. You won't have to worry so much about the remaining battery power while you're on the move, so you can keep recording in comfort. The camcorder is also ideal for long trips
Budget-friendly high def recording is the hallmark of the Panasonic HDC-TM41 High Definition Flash Camcorder. Add to that an extremely lightweight design and compact form-factor, a 16GB internal flash memory, and an SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot, along with numerous shooting controls, and you have one impressive little camcorder. Economical, future-friendly, and user-friendly, the TM41 is an excellent gateway into the world of HD video recording.
On a single charge the TM41 can record for up to 135 minutes, which, along with its lithe design, makes it a great travel companion. Built-in flash memory and the option to add in an SD card also help on that front. And, to help keep your bag even lighter, the HDC-TM41 doubles as a digital still camera. You can leave the still camera at home when you're shooting and capture everything with just this one unit.
When it comes to the core features of the TM41 you'll find that the camera has a 2.7" LCD, a Panasonic lens with a focal length of 48.7mm, and other standard functions like optical image stabilization, 16.8x optical zoom, and an LED video light. Shooting controls like Intelligent Auto, Intelligent Scene Selector, and Face Detection, among others, come in handy to make your videos as beautiful as possible, while allowing you to focus on the moment.
We needed a HD camcorder, but didn't want to spend a lot of money and this item was perfect. We use it to record kids' football games and this is very easy to use, both recording and uploading. The menu is very intuitive. The only drawbacks are: - You must plug in the camera to charge the battery and it doesn't come with a battery recharging stand - It's size(which isn't really a drawback) as it's pretty small and I fear that I will drop it or that it will fall out of my pocket. This is perfect for what we needed and at a good price.
Initally i got little suprise to see the size of the camera it is somehow smaller than the digital cameras in size and weight. Camera looks cool and operates perfect. The only thing i didn't like it i was expecting a battery charger which is external. The battery life is 1 hour 35 minutes and i the battery cannot be chraged standalone it has to be with the camera eventhough it is an external attachment. Need to get a extra battery and a charger so that we can flip over the battery and keep on shooting...
