Great Little Camcorder,
This review is from: Panasonic TA1 Full HD Pocket Camcorder - Violet (8MP Still Images, Skype Compatible Webcam, Built In USB) (Camera)
I purchased this after comparing lots of different 'small' camcorders and I wasn't disappointed.
Despite some mentioning that the unit feels to have flimsy covers I still think that it is a great little unit and I personally don't think it feels too flimsy.
I have a full sized hd camcorder, but wanted something to keep in my bag and this is great for that.
On full hd resolution I only get 40 minutes of recording on a 4gb card, which I feel is quite low, but I find the quality is still good on the lower settings, where I can get up to 2 1/2 hours.
Whilst I wouldn't recommend it for recording a full holiday, as a camcorder to have on hand to record those 'moments' in life, I find it is one of the best I have seen and does the job perfectly.

Nice review. I was wondering what is the typical file size of a 5 or 10 minute video when taken at highest resolution?

Hi. Based on a 4 GB card providing 40 minutes at the highest setting, I'd say about 500 MB for 5 mins and 1 GB for 10 minutes. Hope that helps.

The only drawback I have that is I can`t play back video`s on my notebook computer as Windows Media Player wont accept the MP4 format.
Any thoughts anyone ?

You need to convert the file into a recognised format - just search for 'video file converter'.
