Good points:
Excellent picture quality with HDMI and with USB to computer. There's a lot to learn, but good results can be obtained from basic settings.
Bad points:
Battery indicator said "3 mins left", then cut out. Zoom difficult to use, but I expect will become easier with practice.

John, woking Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The 920X produces vibrant sharp, well stabilised images of what can only be described as 'broadcast' quality. It is truly amazing the number of features Panasonic have managed to pack into a single lightweight camera. This is truly a top end, high quality product and a leader in its class.
Bad points:
Using the viewfinder instead of the screen can be difficult when wearing spectacles. Otherwise I don't think it can be faulted.

Camcorders Buying Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The Panasonic HC-X920EB-K Full HD Camcorder features advanced image sensor technology and impressive processing power to deliver incredible picture quality and colour, plus WiFi compatibility for easy uploads and sharing.

A world first imaging sensor

The 3MOS BSI sensor in this Panasonic video camera records stunningly clear 1920 × 1080p videos that will make all those magical moments look that much more special.

Crystal Engine Pro II helps it to capture professional-looking footage, enhancing overall image quality as well as delivering excellent colour reproduction and high pixel resolution. Performing admirably in dim lighting, it achieves twice the sensitivity of previous models, with all your footage rendered in rich detail.

Teamed with a 20.3 megapixel, 29.8 mm wide-angle Leica Dicomar lens, it’s also capable of shooting high-quality still images. This lens is renowned for its ability to render sharp images and excellent shading.

The wide shooting range lets you express more, extending from 29.8mm wide angle using Intelligent 25x zooming. This lets you capture everything from panoramic scenery to telephoto images for obtaining dynamic images of distant subjects.

It all adds up to a formidably impressive personal video package.

Stability is key

The H-CX920E-BK Camcorder features a 5-axis Hybrid Optical Image Stabiliser to give you perfectly blur-free shots, including a Level Shot technology for perfectly level video recording.

It completely suppresses blurring over the entire shooting range, automatically detecting and correcting for image tilting. Record crisp, clear images with lower blur and increased horizontal evenness when videoing in unstable or awkward positions such as low-angle or high-angle shooting

Use the manual ring to take full control over all your shots, achieving creative focus and more dramatic effects. Intuitively operate the iris, zoom, focus, shutter speed and white balance controls to perfect your results even further.

There’s a Level Gauge to visibly assist you in shooting straight vertical and horizontal lines, and the extendable 263,424-dot equivalent EVF is easy to use, convenient for focusing and other adjustments. See your scenes clearly, even in bright sunlight.

Wireless internet camcorder for remote viewing

With built-in WiFi, the HCX920-EBK enables live streaming of HD video via Ustream, home monitoring for security when at work and remote shooting for watching live video on Tablets or Smartphones.

You can send an email to a pre-registered email address to notify when broadcasting has begun, and the Panasonic Image App lets you remotely check audio recording, zoom in and out and adjust the shutter by using live view on a smartphone or tablet.

There are also facilities for highlight playback and easy SNS sharing, and you can check on pets or family at home when you’re away using Home Monitoring – even speak to them and record images!

More than just a video camera, the Panasonic HC-X920EB-K Full HD Camcorder is a high-quality imaging device that can preserve memories and keep track of what’s happening right now.
