Panasonic HM-TA1 video review



Read the full Panasonic HM-TA1 review

Apart from the built-in video light, webcam capability, and marginally better low light ability than many competitors, Panasonic’s HM-TA1 is a relatively innocuous pocket Internet camcorder. However, it does have one feature to set it apart from the crowd – its price. At around £85, even when you add the price of a SDHC memory card, you should still pay less than £100. This makes the HM-TA1 one of the best value camcorders in its class.

On first seeing it I thought it was a phone.

Indeed I fail to see the value of this when you have phones with 8MP cameras either 32GB memory and/or able to take a memory card.

Given its price I would say a mobile phones that retail with 3-5MP cameras like Nokia’s 6700 Slide for prices ranging from £70-200 could easily incorporate all the HM-TA1 at affordable total price. Indeed it makes senses as it makes no sense carrying a second 'phone'.
