The TM90 sits at the top of Panasonic's mainstream HD camcorder lineup, the so-called 1MOS models. Along with the SD90, these models sport the largest sensors of Panny's 1MOS bunch, and are the only models capable of shooting 1080p video, rather than 1080i. Other attention-grabbing features include a generous 3-inch touschreen LCD and support for Panasonic's 3D conversion lens, if that's the kind of thing you're into. The TM90 is the last stop before you get into really serious camcorders. It captures to 16GB of built-in flash memory, as well as SD/SDHC cards. Also check out the SD90, which records exclusively to cards.
