TM700: Vulture Mine, Wickenburg AZ

One of finest true ghost towns in the American West, Vulture City grew up around the mine discovered by Henry Wickenburg. Twelve miles southwest of the city that now bears Wickenburg’s name, the Vulture Mine and Vulture City once had a population of almost 5,000 souls. Its history was marked by violence and tragedy. Eighteen of Vulture City’s former residents swung to eternity at the end of a hangman’s noose dangling from the branches of the ancient ironwood tree that still thrives next to the ruins of Henry Wickenburg’s old cabin. More died in robberies or through many other acts of terminal lawlessness. A few of those souls are said to haunt the many buildings of the decaying town. (by: Richard Maack)

On different weekends, a Canon EOS 7D and Panasonic HDC-TM700 were used to shoot two separate videos for comparison. This is the Panasonic HDC-TM700 result.

Very interesting and useful comparison - Thanks! I guess you shot the TM700 stuff at 60p. It is noticeable sharper than the 7D footage.

It's a frustrating thing, wide, medium and close shots with the HMC40 and TM700 are most always very sharp. Wide shots with the 7D are seldom impressive and even less so with landscapes.
