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

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...

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 Review

 

The Panasonic HC-X920 is a prosumer camcorder with excellent video capabilities and features but it's too expensive and complicated for people who only need a camera for capturing memories. This HD camcorder is 3D-ready but requires an extra 3D lens....

The Panasonic HC-X920 has all the manual settings you need to film professional video.

It is far too pricy for casual use.

The Panasonic HC-X920 is a fantastic prosumer camcorder, but it's overkill for people who only want to capture their memories.

Consumer review by: Mike555 (johnlewis.com)

Look carefully before you buy.

 

The camera is solidly built and has excellent inbuilt facilities. However it has a number of drawbacks that make me wish I had looked further into the purchase before I made it.The video images produced by the camera are excellent and it has the...

Panasonic HC-X920

 

Easy to use once you've set it up to your requirements. The images are excellent

Battery life is poor. The screen has to be opened in order to access the cable connectors. The set up screens are difficult to navigate. You have to open the screen to change the battery. The SD slot is under the camcorder, so you have to take it off a...
