Panasonic HC-W850

 

Panasonic's HC-W850 introduces a novel Twin Camera feature

Unique second lens lets you record yourself whilst shooting ; Comprehensive manual settings with control dial ; Excellent image quality

Relatively pricey ; Second lens picture-in-picture lacks customisation options

Aside from the second-lens gimmick, this is a decidedly high-end camcorder. While it only has a single CMOS on the main lens, it's relatively large, and there are plenty of manual settings available. The HC-W850 doesn't have the lens ring of...

Great image quality, but the secondary camera sensor may be of little interest to many

video great, audio poor

Astonishing resolution

 

I usually buy a number of small camcorders trying them out for varied aspects. I usually stick with the consumer level because even though professional ones beat them in resolution, everyone has their reason I prefer more Zoom.This one has a dual...

Great Dual-Shot Camera

 

{{{Powerful zoom function that doesn't zoom too fast, nice and smooth. I have found the jumpiness of the zoom on previous camcorders to be terrible, if you don't have just the right touch, you end up zooming way too quickly. The wind shield function is...

Panasonic HC-W850

 

Great indoors and low light filming. Manual settings and lots of automatic settings to play with. Time-lapse, slow motion, night vision mode, can even do stop motion animation, plus a second camera for PiP filming, and lots more effects so you can be...

none so far, other than the potential cost of a second battery will be costly.
