Panasonic HC-VXF990EBK

 

The HC-VXF990EBK is Panasonic's new flagship consumer camcorder for 2016. The conventional camcorder market has contracted considerably of late, and is now about 30% smaller than it was at the end of 2013. As a result, manufacturers have been looking...

Great 4K image quality ; New slow-motion modes ; Capable manual controls and the return of the EVF

Lens control ring hasn't returned ; Accessory shoe cover ungainly ; Not a full camcorder/stills camera hybrid

Some elaborate new features and the return of the EVF make the Panasonic HC-VXF990EBK the most capable consumer camcorder on the market, assuming a standard camcorder is what you want.

Pantastic

 

I bought the camera for my daughters wedding, I found it easy to use, being light weight, and gave superb video and still pictures. Would suggest that it's best to get at least a 64gb SDXC card if you want to take a lot of video. I also bought a spare...

Stunning VideoCam

 

Having used a broadcast quality video camera for my film projects - this Panasonic is my favourite videocam as it is small, slight, excellent quality with a really good feel-good factor. This is the second same cam I purchased last year and gave it to...
