I know these are both new for '12 and recently released in the past month or so but I was still a bit surprised not to have seen an owner's thread for either. I'm in the market a new camcorder with a budget of about $400-$500, so I just wanted to see if anyone's actually had experience with both and could comment on some of the main differences.
I've been reading up on the '11 models (M40 and TM90) both here and at camcorderinfo but haven't had much luck finding either of those in stock at a decent price. Being that the '12 models can be had for about the same price, I was thinking of picking up one of those but in-depth performance details or reviews on them have been hard to come by. Any feedback is appreciated.
Now that these have been out for a little while, some user have began postings reviews. I've compiled a list of them for each model to help those who are trying to make the same decision.
