Panasonic HC-V700

 

The Panasonic HC-V700 ($549.95 list) is one of the few consumer camcorders that can record full 1080p60 video, and it adds solid image stabilization and a versatile 21x optical zoom. It lacks Wi-Fi and some of the other the bells and whistles found in...

Excellent video quality. Solid image stabilization. Sharp LCD

Occasionally inaccurate white balance. No Wi-Fi

The Panasonic HC-V700 lacks some of the useful Wi-Fi features found on competing consumer camcorders, but excellent video quality in a variety of lighting scenarios more than makes up for it.

A powerhouse HD Panasonic with a shockingly-low price tag, the V700 is our Best Mid Range Camcorder for 2012.

The Panasonic HC-V700M tops the list of bang-for-buck models.

Panasonic HC-V700 review

 

Panasonic's HC-V700 camcorder is undoubtedly pricey, but makes up for it with plenty of high-tech features.

Massive zoom ; Excellent motion ; Great image stabilisation ; Useful iA auto mode

Pricey ; Image quality can be quite weak ; Manual controls restricted to touchscreen

The Panasonic HC-V700 isn't a bad camera by any means, but we were a little disappointed by its image quality in the long run – we just wanted a bit more from it.

The panasonic HC-V700 is a nice upgrade on previous models such as the Panasonic HC-V500. Examining footage: you have to look a lot closer to notice any kind of lack of detail compared to previous models. At a glance, image quality is really impressive...

The ability to record in 3D with an optical lens adapter will be seen as welcome by some, others will bemoan having to invest to do so. Adding extra cost should you decide that you want to shoot in 3D. And while there’s a microphone jack, there is no...
