Panasonic HDC-TM40 twin memory full HD camcorder is the world's lightest ultra-compact camcorders at approximately 169 g and comes equipped with a wide range of functions. Its compact, stylish design makes it easy to carry around, so you can record high-quality images any time you want. The HDC-TM40 also achieves the low power consumption of 2.5W. It lets you record images continuously for approximately 135 minutes with a single battery charge, making it very handy for recording while traveling. An optical 16.8x zoom is provided in this compact body. It records even faraway subjects in clear detail.
The HDC-TM40 is equipped with a built-in 16GB memory, and can be used together with a 64GB SDXC Memory Card to shoot for up to 21 hours.
The POWER O.I.S. suppresses even slight hand-shake. When shooting, hand-shake often comes on gradually due to factors like breathing rhythms or the surrounding wind. While this kind of low-frequency hand-shake went undetected with conventional O.I.S., POWER O.I.S. has a variety of functions that detect even the slightest shake.
The Intelligent Scene Selector function analyzes the shooting situation and automatically switches the camcorder to the suitable scene mode that will give you optimal results.
Intelligent Contrast Control detects the ambient light level and adjusts the exposure accordingly, helping to prevent blown highlights and blocked shadows. You can capture natural looking, highly nuanced images with proper contrast.
Face Detection automatically senses the ambient lighting and adjusts the exposure accordingly, so faces are bright and easy to see. The focus also prioritizes the faces, and skin tones are smoothed. Faces in the center of the frame serve as the reference for adjustments, but the function can detect up to 15 faces at once.
The smart Pre-Rec Function records three seconds of images even before you actually begin shooting. The images are held temporarily in the camcorder's internal memory, before recording begins. This helps ensure that you won't miss the start of a moment you want to record, such as when an event begins all of a sudden.
