Panasonic TM300. Any clips out there?

Hi,

I'm curious if any of you who are likely much more informed than me has found any sign of the TM300? I noticed an preview of it on another site, but haven't been able to find anything else of significance. It's ostensibly better in low light than the older Panny's. Has anyone seen any clips? It would be nice to see how it compares to the HF s100 and others in its class.

Thanks

Peter

My last post in this thread http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/digital-v...amcorders.html has the Watch.Impress review with samples but Iíve seen them do a poor job with the samples with a few of their camcorders and this is one of them. Itís better to find other sources.

Thanks, I'll take a peek at that.

I'm curious to see how this camera does in comparison to the Hf S100 and the GH1.

sd100...

the Panasonics have gotten very little press this last year...

I bought an SD100 to see what AVCHD had to offer, & I'm very pleased with the PQ & the manual control of this small cam...

I come from a cable tv commercial backgound, using a Sony DXC537 BetaSP, & I've used various cams from an AG450, VX1000, etc....the latest sony being an HC1

The Pana SD100 produces a picture with small grain, the lower the light the more the grain becomes noticible.. but I don't find it at all objectional, as it looks like a film grain to me... the stills are not all that great, as the resolution is not what you need for a great pic....

The new Pana's should look even better with the larger sensors & lens....
