I have been using and older Sony tape based camcorder and and going to buy a new one and have been eyeing up the Panasonic HDC-TM900 and the HC-X900, and was wondering if anyone has any experience with either camera?

And as I have been in the realm of using tape what concerns do I need to think about now that I will be tapeless with just about any current camera it seems.

And I am editing in FCP 5.1.4 and on a MacBook Pro 2.4 Intel Core 2 Duo with 4 gigs of RAM, running 10.5.8. Am I going to have problems with either the hardware or software end of things?

I am sure there will be surprises along the way but I am just wondering about this change from tape to digital and other formats etc and hope to keep the ugly surprises to a minimum.

Thanks in advance.
