Panasonic HC-WX970 4k Ultra HD Camcorder Review (HC-VX870, HC-WX970, WX970, VX870)

 

With the Panasonic HC-WX970 4k Camcorder we definitely have on our hands a compact, economically priced consumer market 4K video recording device worth seriously taking a look at. This little recorder is in some ways very similar to Sony's AX33 4K...

Excellent 4K UHD video quality ; Great connectivity and WiFi controls ; Easy to use physical controls ; twin camera function for documentary style shooting ; Highly affordable ; compact

lacks more robust lens controls ; HDR mode doesn’t work on 4K video ; Weak battery ; Chunky video transfer bitrate

The bottom line for the Panasonic HC-WX970 is that it is an absolutely excellent choice for consumer and some prosumer 4K video recording buffs. A mix of excellent photo and video quality combines with highly flexible usability to create on fine little...

Panasonic HC-WX970M camcorder

 

Use this as a dedicated 4K shooter to make videos for your 4K TV

Shoots 4K video ; HDR mode in Full HD

Twin camera feature seems tacky ; Poor motion handling in 4K

Panasonic HC-WX970 review

 

The HC-WX970's fantastic 4K image quality and HDR mode makes for wonderfully well-exposed scenes

Panasonic HC-WX970

 

Leica Dicomar lens, 20x optical zoom and Panasonic's 5-Axis Hybrid O.I.S.+ optical image stabilisation as well as other functions including HDR movie mode and the rather odd Twin Camera.

True 4K camcorder shooting for under £1,000 ; Second lens lets you record yourself whilst shooting ; Comprehensive manual settings with control dial

No lens ring, just a lens dial ; Not the big-chip stills camera 4K crossover we're waiting for ; Panasonic's HC-VX870 offers almost as many features for £250 less

The Panasonic HC-WX970 is a great high-end option for 'prosumer' 4K early adopters, with comprehensive features and great image quality.

Panasonic HC-WX970M camcorder

 

For those of you with a 4K TV who want to get the best out of it sooner rather than later, one of the ways to do so is to shoot your own 4K videos. It's possible to shoot such video with many new digital still cameras, and if you already own a capable...

Consumer review by: Ria (panasonic.com)

It's a waste of money.

 

" The touch screen doesn't work well. The battery won't even last for 40 minutes when recording. The 4k effect will only work if you watch your videos on 4K TV. "

Poor quality , Expensive , Did not meet expectations , Poor documentation , Difficult to use

Significant Upgrade

 

" This product fits our needs and budget. As a small business we made a huge leap coming from basic model GoPro and iPhones. This camera is incredibly easy to work with for us and we are very happy with our purchase so far. "
