PanasonicPanasonic HM-TA1 pocket camcorder : Panasonic introduced the Panasonic HM-TA1, a new Full High Definition (HD), 1920 x 1080 pixels-capable mobile video camera with pocket-sized dimensions for ultimate portability and ideal for on-the-go shooting opportunities. With an easy-to-use design intended for intuitive operation, the Panasonic TA1 features an integrated USB terminal and software that allows for easy PC connection and uploading videos to online sharing sites such as YouTube and Facebook. The TA1 also supports the Apple iFrame video format (960 x 540/30p), which is optimal for Mac users to import quickly and maintain small file sizes. When using iMovie, the iFrame video data in the video camera is the same format as the one that is used to edit.

The Panasonic HM-TA1 will be available in three different color options, purple, dark grey and red in August 2010 with a suggested retail price of $169.95.
