Panasonic HC-V720

 

The Panasonic HC-V720 captures sharp 1080p60 HD video and supports Wi-Fi remote control, earning it our Editors' Choice award.

26x f/1.8-3.5 zoom lens. 20-megapixel still capture. Excellent image stabilization. 1080p60 video capture. Wi-Fi. Mic input.

Pricey. Limited battery life.

Video Quality and Conclusions The V720 uses an image sensor that is large for a camcorder. Others in this class use 1/5.8-inch sensors, but the V720 has a 1/2.3-inch chip, the same size that's found in point-and-shoot cameras. Video quality is...

Panasonic HC-V720

 

The V720 appeals to beginners, but plenty of advanced features are there when you need them.

It's hard to get excited about a camcorder that offers so few performance improvements, but bear with us, because the Panasonic HC-V720—like its predecessor—is a great deal.

Panasonic HC-V720

 

The HC-V720 brings WiFi and 5.1 surround to the middle of Panasonic's range.

Good image quality ; Comprehensive manual controls ; 5.1 surround sound

No headphone minijack

Aside from the single CMOS rather than three, the other key area where the HC-V720 offers a reduced feature set over the flagship HC-X920 is the lack of the multi-purpose lens ring. So most functions must be accessed via the 3in touch-screen LCD. There...

Wi-Fi controlled via apps ; Arty effects and time-lapse mode ; Great zoom, even when hand-held

Short-lived kit battery

Top marks for footage, zoom and stabilisation, but bring a spare battery

Panasonic HC-V720 review

 

Updated camcorder is big on features

Excellent zoom ; Brilliant image stabilisation ; 1080p at 50fps ; Clever Wi-Fi features

Image quality could be better ; Menus often confusing ; Pretty expensive ; Limited controls for serious users

Panasonic HC-V720 review

 

A good mid-range camcorder with great Wi-Fi features and good image quality for the money

We like the Panasonic HC-V720, especially its Wi-Fi features, but we don’t like the cheap feel of the controls, particularly the zoom lever. We can forgive this, though, thanks to great image quality for the price, a 3MOS camera is far better but then...

Panasonic HC-V720 review: More features than certain other camcorders of a similar class

 

Stereo sound courtesy of a large front microphone and wider overall proportions have allowed for more features than certain camcorders in its class

More solid feel less plastic-y build than cheaper camcorder rivals, more comprehensive feature set

Broader dimensions means this unit sits less comfortably in the palm than narrower rivals, or is better suited to those with big hands

While the ‘core’ optical zoom here appears comparably modest at 21x, with a focal range stretching from a wide 28mm-729.6mm and a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture, this can be digitally extended via what Panasonic calls its 50x ‘intelligent’ zoom, though...

Reports of the camcorder's demise are slightly premature, if Panasonic's new range is anything to go by
