Here in Germany the HDC-TM350 is on general sale in all the usual outlets, but for an eye-watering ! It's had similarly great reviews but, as here, the not-so-great-leap-for-camerakind over the HDC-TM300 (not available here!) is pointed out the price difference between this and the HDC-SD300, which records to memory cards as it has no in-built hard drive and is cheaper, makes the latter a more obvious choice. Why there is no HDC-TM300 here I don't know. Maybe it will come or the HDC-TM350 will be downpriced sometime. I suppose this is where internet shopping comes into play.
Here in the UK there's no SD300, only the TM300, HS300 and SD200.
Panasonic UK clearly has a different opinion to Panasonic D as to what sells. Add 64GB of SD cards to the SD300 and the TM350 does become a more attractive proposition, but that initial is a lot to swallow, especially these days. I think the UK range covers the bases better and the TM350 is also quite a bit cheaper in the UK too.
your opinion is very important to me..I have the money, so should i buy this one or a canon? which is the best hd canon? is there any better hd consumer than the s11? please help!
