John, Ravenshead Just point and shoot

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use and because of the small size more likeley to have it availiable to use.
Bad points:
Because of the small size it makes it difficult to hold still. I found attatching the enclosed tripod and using this as a handgrip helped.

Camcorders Buying Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The HM-TA2 is equipped with Night View Mode, which lets you shoot with twice the brightness* of the previous model. When shooting, this function automatically detects dark scenes and the mode selector button lights up on the LCD screen. Simply press the button to start shooting with Night View Mode. And you can shoot clear images with minimal noise even in dark scenes, such as dimly lit indoor shots or party scenes. * Compared with the HM-TA1.
The HM-TA2 has an easy-to-see 3.0-inch touch panel with intuitive operation. The touch panel has a simple button layout and is easy to operate. The vertical configuration makes the camera easy to hold for shooting, while the horizontal 3.0-inch screen simplifies playback. To further increase operating ease, the Rec button is isolated and positioned below the touch panel. So you can simply pick up your mobile camera and start shooting or playback. *The LCD in the model for Europe is described as being 7.0 cm (which equals 3.0 inches).
A tripod stand comes included with the HM-TA2. It’s handy for web camera use, or to hold the camera still to prevent blurring while shooting.
Record high-quality Full-HD (1920 × 1080/30p) videos with this handy little compact. Save those fun moments forever in beautiful HD images. * “Full-HD video with 1920 × 1080 pixels” in Panasonic’s home-use high definition mobile camera refers to video recordings with 1920 pixels in the horizontal direction and 1080 pixels in the vertical direction.
The linear PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) system records sounds that are faithful to the original. You can also shoot a photo while recording sounds. Enjoy playing your recorded sounds and photos simultaneously. This is handy for a wide range of applications, including business meetings and lessons.
