Panasonic HM-TA20 Camcorder Review

The HM-TA20 is Panasonic's newest attempt at a waterproof ultracompact camcorder.

Introduction

The HM-TA20 is Panasonic's newest attempt at a waterproof ultracompact camcorder. The model did a decent job in our performance tests, but it didn't handle all that well and it was surprisingly difficult to use. The camcorder is available in blue or orange and currently retails for just under $200.
