Panasonic HC-V770

 

The HC-V770 is Panasonic's top HD-only camcorder. Its flagship models, the HC-VX870 and HC-WX970, have moved up to 4K.

Good value ; Comprehensive manual settings with control dial ; Wi-Fi connectivity

No lens ring ; Small sensor compared to a DSLR ; No 4K shooting

If your budget doesn't stretch to 4K, the Panasonic HC-V770 provides feature-rich and high-quality Full HD video that's sure to impress.

The Best Video Camera

 

After 30 hours of research and testing, the Panasonic HC-V770K is the best video camera for those who want more than what their smartphone or DSLR has to offer.

For anyone who wants to capture better quality and more useful video of their family and friends, the way to go is the $600 Panasonic HC-V770K . Its 20x zoom, top-of-the-line stabilization, excellent sharpness, and deep, saturated colors put it not...

PANASONIC HC-V770EB-K Full HD Camcorder - Black

 

Image quality from this camcorder is exceptional, in both AVCHD and MP4 mode, but its best feature is the stunning stability system, hand gel video on longish zoom is now possible!

Some of the options in the menu are a bit arbitrary, battery life with the small included battery is a bit limited in practice and spare genuine batteries are expensive
