Great video but seems to have fan noise on audio,
This review is from: Panasonic SD900 Full HD 1920x1080p (50p) 3D Ready Camcorder - Black (3MOS sensor, SD Card Recording, Leica Dicomar Lens and Manual Control Ring) (Electronics)
Early days as I have just been using this for a few days but this camera shoots great video no doubt about that.
Only downside so far is that there seems to be an internal fan or something which spins up and down and it can be heard on the on board mics. I only thought this was an issue with the models with built in hard drive?

No, the internal fan is there on these models becasue the image processing chips get so hot when filming in full HD that they need to be cooled down by the fan. of course, an important question is what is the longevity and reliability of the fan? Because it is almost 100% certain that if the fan fails, the processors/imaging chips will overheat and the camera will become unstable and possible broken. I hope the fans are more reliable than those little fans on video cards...

Mr. M. Comerford says:
The TM/SD/HC900 have had an altered fan design, it should be inaudible. Either you've gotten mixed up with the SD700, picking up noise from another source or you have a faulty camera.
