Eye Spy

Blackmail is such a harsh word. I’d rather call it “sharing something on Facebook.”

Look, no one ever plans on catching their boss smooching on a lady that isn’t his wife while they’re making a fun office video for the weekly company e-mail newsletter. And yet, here we are, you with a heart full of guilt, regret, and fear, and me with a few Full-HD movies of you and your secretary swapping spit in the parking garage. Funny how things work out, huh?

See, as your Social Media Coordinator, I feel it is my duty to report on all the important things that happen behind the scenes here at BlamCo that I record on my trusty Panasonic 1080p Mobile HD Camcorder with 3” Touchscreen. I’d be doing a disservice to all of our followers on Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook, as well as those stock holders that receive our weekly emails, if I didn’t post these videos, you know? And before you start denying that it’s you in the video, I’d like to remind you that the Night View Mode pretty clearly captures you groping her backside in the low light of the parking garage. Pretty sure that’s you saying “My wife means nothing to me” while she nibbles on your neck too. The sound recording courtesy of the linear Pulse Code Modulation system doesn’t lie, I’m afraid. Did you want to take a look at it again in the 3” touch panel display? No? I understand.

Actually, tripling my salary would be nice, sir, thank you! And maybe you could give me the ability to hire a couple of assistants, too? Oh, and I’d like my title changed to “Social Media Guru.” It looks better on a business card.

  • Record high-quality Full-HD (1920 x 1080/30p) movies with this handy little compact. Save those fun moments forever in beautiful HD images
  • Even with its compact size and super mobility, the HM-TA2 lets you shoot Full-HD movies and photos. Just slip it into a pocket or hang it from your wrist. It goes wherever you go. Perfect for capturing everyday fun
  • Easy-to-see 3.0” touch panel with intuitive operation. The touch panel has a simple button layout and is easy to operate. The vertical configuration makes the camera easy to hold for shooting, while the horizontal 3.0” screen simplifies playback. To further increase operating ease, the Rec button is isolated and positioned below the touch panel. So you can simply pick up your mobile camera and start shooting or playback
  • Equipped with Night View Mode, which lets you shoot with twice the brightness of the previous model. When shooting, this function automatically detects dark scenes and the mode selector button lights up on the LCD screen. Simply press the button to start shooting with Night View Mode. And you can shoot clear images with minimal noise even in dark scenes, such as dimly lit indoor shots or party scenes
  • The linear PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) system records sounds that are faithful to the original. You can also shoot a photo while recording sounds. Enjoy playing your recorded sounds and photos simultaneously. This is handy for a wide range of applications, including business meetings and lessons
  • Tripod stand comes bundled with the HM-TA2. It’s handy for web camera use, or to hold the camera still to prevent blurring while shooting
  • The E.I.S. (Electrical Image Stabilizer) system helps to correct the kind of hand-shake blurring that often happens with compact cameras. Record all the images you want, whether you’re shooting while walking or taking self-portraits, without having to worry about blurring
  • Give the image some warmth with Sepia mode, make it extra cool with Monochrome mode, or capture beautiful skin tones with Soft Skin mode. Match your shooting to your mood and subject
  • Save a smile from someone special, or capture the beauty of flowers bathed in sunshine. You can save memories like these in high-quality images with 8-megapixel (5MP effective) resolution
  • The built-in LED lets you capture bright, crisp images even in dark situations, like indoors or during nighttime events. (The LED light does not go on when operating in Web cam mode)
  • You can cut out and save still images by simply pressing the Photo Cutout button while playing back a video. This ensures that you’ll never miss that perfect shot again
  • Upload your movies onto YouTube and Facebook. As soon as you plug the TA2’s built-in USB terminal into a PC, the embedded HD Writer PE 2.0 application (Windows only) launches automatically. With a single click, you can instantly share your movies with your family and friends
  • The camera allows you to record video in iFrame-only mode, which makes it much faster and easier to import into many PC & Mac NLE (nonlinear editing) programs, as it typically requires no time-consuming, storage-eating transcoding
  • Built-in USB terminal means that there’s no need to carry around an adapter. And you can charge the battery by simply plugging the USB terminal into a PC
  • Mini HDMI terminal lets you enjoy images with natural Full-HD quality by directly connecting the camera to an HDTV
