Good camcorder with built-in Wi-Fi, but it's too expensive

Consumer review by: Michael (

Panasonic HC-V550


1. Very small and light ; 2. Once set up, very easy to use inc. auto shutoff if camera tilts too far and info button that tries to explain each feature ; 3. Brilliant zoom ; 4. Crisp picture quality in daylight ; 5. Fantastic value for money in the sale

1. Camera size can mean buttons are difficult to use for people with larger hands ; 2. Camera setup can be tricky and info button and user manual fail to explain all the features clearly enough ; 3. The recording choices in terms of quality are limited...
