Panasonic HC-X920


Panasonic's new flagship has the same look of its predecessors, but it's got a few new tricks under the hood.

The WiFi features are a good start, but we'd like to see more from Panasonic's next flagship.

Good easy to use cam


I use this cam for birthday parties, weddings, sightseeing trips and more. The menus are very easy to understand and it has a 3" touch screen. Internal Microphone is good but if you want high quality sound I would recommend an exterior microphone. Has...

User friendly buttons, anti shake is the best, bigger touch screen, auto leveling function, tons more

Panasonic HC-X920 camcorder review


Any company making camcorders has its work cut out these days. The whole sphere of producing video has changed so much in recent years that there's only room for a couple of companies to have a crack of the whip, and actually make any money.

Fantastic picture quality, compact, Wi-Fi modes are helpful, lovely to use

Wi-Fi app can be a bit flaky, quite expensive, compact cameras offer a lot of the features, Wi-Fi is a battery killer

A fantastic camcorder that's ideal for a lot of shooting. While the DSLR look is very much in vogue, it's a specific look that won't suit every production of desired look. What the X920 offers then is a video camera that suits some type of work very...

Panasonic HC-X920


The Panasonic HC-X920 is one of the better camcorders we've tested, but it falls just short of our Editors' Choice rating.

The X920 uses a three-chip design, one for each primary color, each of which is 1/2.3-inches in size. The configuration delivers some impressive video quality, noticeably better than lower end models that we’ve tested. The zoom lens doesn’t have nearly...
