The Panasonic HM-TA1 is a middle-end camcorder. It is designed to capture video footage in full HD. It features a built-in USB terminal, E.I.S technology, and easy web uploading. The built-in USB terminal allows for a user to plug the camcorder directly into a computer. This gets rid of the need of any external USB cables. The battery of the camcorder can also charge this way. E.I.S (Electrical Image Stabilization) technology helps correct blurriness that may occur in a video because of shaky hands. This greatly enhances the quality of the video. A user of the Panasonic HM-TA1R can easily upload recorded video to popular websites such as Youtube and Facebook. All a user needs to do is plug the camcorder into a PC or Mac, and upload the videos through an embedded program called HD Writer PE 1.0. When compared to another camcorder by Panasonic, the HDC-SDX1, the HM-TA1 has some disadvantages, such as the lack of Hybrid O.I.S technology. It does however, have an advantage in that it is more compact, and has a built-in USB terminal.
