Panasonic HC-X920

 

3-chip design. 20-megapixel still capture. Wide aperture lens. Excellent image stabilization. 1080p60 video capture. Touch screen. EVF. Wi-Fi. Mic and headphone connectors. Manual focus ring

Expensive. Limited zoom range. Limited battery life. No internal storage

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

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.

Panasonic HC-X920 camcorder - Pocket-lint

 

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

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

You might be a little sceptical about the need for a proper video camera in the days of DSLRs and phones, but we promise you, there's something a lot nicer about picking up a tool designed to do the job. Sure, you can do all DIY with a hammer if need...

Panasonic's 9 series camcorders are, somewhat predictably, having their yearly refresh. The HC-X920 will replace the HC-X900 and have many of the same

Panasonic HC-X920

 

The HC-X920 proves Panasonic is still top dog for high-end consumers camcorders.

Class-leading image quality ; Manual controls including lens focus ring ; Extensive new WiFi features

Optional 3D just as limited as previous flagship model

The Intelligent Auto button now calls up a new menu of options, with iA adding control over exposure and colour balance to the automatic mix. This menu also provides rapid access to scene modes, plus creative options including a faux tilt-shift...

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...

Consumer review by: jamie f. (newegg.com)

This should be 4-5 stars

 

This camera is not a 1,000 camera. It is over rpiced even with the good rpices that new egg offered. It is a consumer vehicle for home video I would have been better of buying top of the line Sony consummer @more money

This gets fine video, The camera stil shots are incredible

It is almost impossible to easily access the live streaming from outside locations The system is complex ad difficulte to use The body heats up easily

Outstanding camera in every way!

 

This camera finally gives me the quality and versatility I've been striving to find for decades. It's light, does a fantastic job in detail and all lighting situations, which is enough to satisfy me, but I haven't really tried the camera out in all its...

Great Video & Audio but not great still pictures

 

" I bought my x920 in March 2015 mainly for the video quality and the fact it could take high quality stills using it's built in flash. I am very impressed with it's video and audio quality but VERY, VERY disappointed with it's still picture quality....

Inexpensive , Durable , Exceeded expectations , Convenient , Easy to use , so many fun things you can do with this camera

don't buy it for it's still picture quality.
