The Panasonic HM-TA20 is a pocket digital camcorder that is built for active and rugged environments. This is similar to the Panasonic HM-TA2, but has a more sturdy casing that is waterproof to 3 meters. It can also be dropped safely from 1.5 meters and will resist damage in dusty environments. They are otherwise the same, with a 3 inch touch screen interface and full 1080p high definition video capture. An LED light is built in to make shooting in dim locations easier, or alternately the Night View Mode can be used for extremely dark environments. An Electrical Image Stabilizer (EIS) is used to account for slight movements of the hand while shooting, and a tripod stand is also included. A built-in USB connection enables files to be copied over, and the HDMI connection enables video to be viewed directly on an external display.
