I just found out that the Panasonic HDC-TM20-K SD & HDD Camcorder that is currently on sale at $529.99 can have an additional $200 knocked off the price by entering the code TM20DEAL at checkout. That’s going to bring this camera down to a amazing $329.99!!! People, this is a great deal. The camera also has free shipping as well.

This camcorder can shoot in full 1080p HD, and uses 16DB SD built in HDD memory.

HDC-TM20-K black SD & HDD camcorder

I had a few conversations with a Tweep (@SeerMax) about good camcorders, and she was interested in picking up the Panasonic HDC-HS250-K HHD HD Camcorder (with 120 GB drive). I wasn’t familiar with this camcorder, so I thought I’d take a look at this camera. Holy cow.. is this a nice unit!

This is going in a different direction than the mini-camcorder or shoot-and-share camcorders I’ve been talking about lately. SeerMax and I initially talked about the quality and durability of the more consumer/convenience based camcorders and it was agreed that the durability is often questioned. When we start to go to higher-end equipment and up to professional grade equipment, we definitely see improvements in the craftsmanship and inclusion of upper-end components that make these units last longer and perform better. Obviously, I need to put a gigantic asterisk next to this, since it always depends on the camera, the brand and model you get as well as what you’re exposing the gear to.

This camera looks absolutely fantastic and having a 120 GB drive is nice. It shoots in true 1080p HD and can shoot 11MP still photos. I saw one mention where it was advertised that it can do time-lapse, and apparently, this is not true. If anyone else can comment on this, that would be great.

Currently this camera lists at $899.95, but at the time of this post, you can purchase this camera for $762.26 after savings and you can also get a FREE Polaroid ProGo Printer!

A few days ago, I posted the differences between the Flip Video Mino and Ultra HD camcorders and a visitor to the site was very interested in these cameras so he could do some video blogging of musical instruments and gear. He mentioned this to a few of his friends, and couple recommended the Sony Webbie (and I’m presuming it was the MHS-PM1 since it’s somewhat similar to the Flip Video), so I thought I would post about this particular camcorder.

Record HD MP4 video and 5MP images then easily upload them directly to the Web with the SonyWebbie HD camera. The ultra-compact Webbie HD camera also features a unique lens system that can swivel up to 270 degrees, allowing for easy self-shooting if you like to post videos of yourself on your blog.

I found this interesting video where a guy compares the Sony Webbie HD MHS-PM1 against his Panasonic SDR-S7 camera and by doing so exposes some of it’s features and limitations, that I could see being applied against the Flip Video series.

Number one he mentions the rotating lense on the Sony Webbie, which makes it very nice to film yourself while being able to view the screen. You cannot do this with the Flip Video models (unfortunately). He also exposes the ‘noise’ related to grip on the Webbie, which I can see becoming a issue depending on the application.

Here is the video:
