Nice unit, but not quite an HDC HS900

MIKAL Films, B&H Photo
29 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I wanted to get a second HDC-HS900, but they apparently stopped making it without first supplying a suitable replacement. I guess the HC-X920 is now the highest level pro-sumer camera that Panasonic makes. While it does have a couple of advances (higher resolution stills, wifi), I feel like this camera seems like it should be a pre-HS900 model, rather than post. It seems needlessly larger, bulkier, and it even feels like a cheaper plastic unit.
  • Pros: Great Picture Quality, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Accessory Shoe On Side, No Accessory Shoe On Top, Poor Sound

Don't be in a hurry to utilize it after you buy it

Gary E Domke, Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: I've been an ardent amateur photographer for years. I've had local camera stores ask to exhibit my photos and run week long exhibitions of my work to show what can be done by an amateur with good equipment. They've even sold some of my photos for me. In addition to building and programming my own personal computers for the past eighteen years, I am technologically sophisticated, particularly when it comes to camera gear. This purchase was my first digital cam-corder.

NO 24P

Robert R Freeland, Amazon
15 December 2013
  • Summary: I know some people say 24P doesn't matter...but it does to me. I saw someone say that "Cinema Mode" is 24P. It is not, it's 29.97 *interlaced.* Otherwise, pretty nice cam in general. Works well in low light. I had trouble with the WiFi (I am a network consultant, should be able to make it work) and between that and the lack of 24P, I guess I'm sorry that I bought accessories already because it's going back.

Runs a little hot

VideoGeek, B&H Photo
11 July 2013
  • Excerpt: The video quality was good but I found this camera ran a little hot for my liking. I ran it for only a few minutes and it started to get extremely hot. In all fairness I only operated it for a few minutes before deciding to return it. I may have gotten one with a factory defect. I had ordered two but did not try the other one after testing this one.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality

Great on paper - Not so great in action.

Martin "Martin", Amazon
30 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera and wound up returning it. As much as I wanted it to work - it wasn't for me. The zoom would flicker on objects in the background which makes the video look really bad and as I often blog (use the camera facing me) - it was a pain in the behind that the controls aren't available on the touch screen when you flip it over. And, as nice as the iPhone feature is ... it doesn't replace a necessary remote control for simple start / stop.

Most affordable prosumer camcorder with professional image quality

GadgeTron, Amazon
10 March 2013
  • Summary: Updating the review after more analysis. Its a great camera, and I'd give it 4 stars, however.. I'm going to keep at 3 stars so that panasonic understands it needs to work on its White Balance features and color accuracy. With the default settings and intelligent auto, there is a "cool tone" in the picture. Although this camera has the best sharpness, The Canon G20 and Sony CX760 both excel in color saturation/white balance.

User Review

  • Excerpt: Знал бы об этом, оставил бы своюТМ 700, которой даже жёстких 2 падения с высоты 1,5 м. нисколько не повредили. Сильно переживаю, что позарился на рекламные параметры, но...поезд,как говорится, ушёл. Хотелось бы, чтобы другие не повторяли моей ошибки (непонятно, откуда берутся хвалебные отзывы, особенно насчёт качества фото, если оно на уровне "мыльницы" конца 20-го века).
  • Pros: Хорошая стабилизация
  • Cons: Бирюзовое небо. Отвратительное качество фото (по сравнению с моделью ТМ 700, да и видео хуже). Отсутствие зарядного устройства(зарядка батареи только через камеру); купил дополнительно за 30 долларов, но оно работает нестабильно. Человек, который похвастался мне этой камерой, потом (когда я уже купил её) подтвердил мою оценку. Почему же не предупредился по-человечески? Наверное, не хотел быть в одиночестве...

Хорошая камера, но есть нюансы!

Sasha3100, Onliner
27 July 2013
  • Summary: Немного длинновата, монитор хороший, пластик приятный, съемка шикарная (все-таки 3 матрицы), стабилизация очень четкая. Что-то внутри болтается (может так и надо)). Но есть основная проблема, из-за которой я ее вернул на следующий день- она греется, причем вся нижняя часть нагревается не слабо. Может мне попалась такая, но когда она остыла, снова включил и минут через 10 стала ооочень теплая... Вообщем такая беда...
  • Pros: 3 матрицы, аккумулятор
  • Cons: Греется, не пульта д.у., размер (могли бы сделать по-меньше)
