Panasonic has just introduced the TA-1 Pocket Camcorder. This streamlined piece of technology can be used to capture still pictures and videos, and is highly compact.
This camera is small enough to fit into the palm of your hand and weighs a mere quarter of a pound. Don’t let the size of this camera fool you, however.
Panasonic thought of everything when making the TA-1. It’s perfect for on the go shooting pictures and videos due to its portability and easy to use design. There is a selection of single-function buttons such as power, record, and still photo, as well as a center keypad for selecting additional settings. It can be charged by using its integrated USB, so there is no need to keep extra cords or chargers.
This camera is incredibly versatile, and shoots video, still photos, and can be used as a webcam and microphone. Data is recorded on an SD Memory Card which can then be transferred to your computer using the integrated USB terminal and software. This allows you to easily upload pictures and videos to online sharing sites such as MySpace and Facebook. This camera works seamlessly with video chat programs such as Skype.
The Panasonic TA-1 uses Electrical Image Stabilization to reduce hand shake issues, as well as being tripod mountable. It also has up to 4x digital zoom and a built in LED light and takes photos and video in Full High Definition, which produces high quality, vibrant videos and pictures. The camera features color effects for creative shooting with the touch of a button.
The camera also supports the Apple iFrame video format, which is perfect for Mac users to maintain and import small files.
The Panasonic TA-1 is a versatile piece of technology. Whether you’re taking pictures, videos, or video chatting online, this camera can do it all for a fairly inexpensive price of $165.Sources:
