Introduction

The Panasonic TM90 is a single 1/4.1'' chip HD camcorder leading Panasonic's 2011 mid-range consumer lineup with 1080/60p video recording, a 21x optical zoom lens, and 16GB of built-in flash memory to go along with SDHC/SDXC compatibility. It inherits many of the features of last year's middle and high-end models, bringing 1080/60p video quality to Panasonic's consumer line.
