Excerpt: The quality of video results compared with much more expensive equipment so is quite good. I compared it to a Sony AX100 in HD mode and it stands up well. The 5 channnel surround sound is a little thin and subject to wind so I added a Rode Video Mike Pro to be able to pick out voices in noisy surroundings. The stubby VMP was really the only choice given the strange mount at the very front of the camera that puts boom microphones right in the line of view of the lens!
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I love this camera, but no matter how good it is, it does not even come close to yielding professional quality. The lens has soft focus and the video is noisy to the naked eye when viewed on a 46-inch monitor. (To be fair, I have a very high standard.) Although it has a manual focus ring, more than 360 degrees of rotation are required to rack focus significantly; focus and zoom funtions are not available simultaneously.
Pros: Easy to handle, Good Focus, Good Image Stabilization, Long recording time, Pretty good video quality
Cons: Focus Ring Inconvenient, Lens Too Soft, Video Too Noisy
Excerpt: It was not obvious from the product descriptions, and no one else mentioned it, that this camera will only upload to iMovie in a mode called iFrame. iFrame disables all creative options. You can only shoot straight video with no effects, not even time lapsed or B&W. It seems like a decent camera other than that. The touch screen has a great picture and the extendable viewfinder is nice with a great picture as well.
Pros: Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
Cons: Iframe Mode Very Limited, Only 1 Sd Card Slot

Summary: Nice Camcorder. The Videos are very vibrant even with AVCHD format. I have not set to 1080P since it consumes space and battery life but despite that the quality of video is awesome. The video stabilization is pretty good. Video shake has reduced considerably. Couple of complaints are 1. When you set to photo shoot mode it takes a long time to take a picture and get ready for the next one. Not as fast as camera where you can make multiple instant clicks.
Panasonic HC-X920 3D Ready HD 3MOS Digital Camcorder with Wi-fi (black)

Summary: Panasonic HC-X920 3D Ready HD 3MOS Digital Camcorder with Wi-fi (black) - Got this solely for the 3MOS stabilizer. This camcorder is great. Battery lasts a long time. AVCHD recording. Sharp images and resolution.
Summary: We have only used this for about 2 hours of video, but the results are very good. This is a pro-sumer camera with extensive manual settings. The white-balance is absolutely necessary and works as expected. Controls are easy to use, although I wish that I could control both the focus and zoom though separate rings rather than the single, multi-purpose ring. The tablet control app is almost there. It is a very good idea, but not quite what you need in remote controls.
Excerpt: What I really like about the camera is the 3 cmos sensor. Great color and crisp images. This camera is simple to use and the o.i.s is really great for handheld. I like the 5.1 surround sound, I think its a lot better than most built in mics, but plugging in a microphone always works better. Low light, eh. Its good but you get some noise. I am really disappointed in the video format options, you can only shoot at 60p/i.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
Excerpt: Product arrived in good shape; works as spec'ed. Color is good. Chose this over comparable Sony [bought Sony for past 15 yrs] due to features/price. Wish it had FireWire; USB sux. WiFi feature isn't useful to me. Manual controls over focus, white balance, etc work well. Time lapse for video works fine, but, wish all the "creative controls" had more options/settings.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Large Clear LCD
