Panasonic HC-V250


Easy to carry, very light weight, very sharp images. Can film from a very far distance. Excellent value for money.

The viewing screen is smaller and long distance filming doesn't reach as far as previous model

A super camcorder, easy to use & great image quality. Just come back from Cyprus for 11 days & used it every day. The zoom is excellent. Just have to be careful when stopping filming to make sure it has paused otherwise it carries on even after closing...
