Panasonic HC-V720 Review


The camcorder from Panasonic is aided with 1/2.33-inch highly sensitive MOS sensor which can pick low intensity lights. So, during night or dimly lit ambience, the camcorder can easily take videos seamlessly. Even in very bright light, the images are perfectly visible without any shiny effect. Real-time broadcasting can be done through the web using the HC720 camcorder. For instance, a scene is clicked live and seamlessly broadcasted in social media networks. Just like a reporter with a video recording gadget, an amateur videographer can also do the same thing through this model. With just a single touch the gizmo can be connected to a smartphone or tablet. It is also possible to shoot remotely through various technologies that have been integrated in the system. The Near Field Communication (NFC) allows this possibility. Wi-Fi connectivity is also possible through QR code. In short, the videos can be uploaded to various computing devices or on the web – easily. Panasonic HC-V720 Review The 3-inch LCD monitor supports 460,800 dots. But there is no provision for a viewfinder. There is HDMI connectivity, microphones, USB2.0 port, LED-based video light, and a shoe to help in shooting activities. The gizmo is equipped with a fairly powerful flash. There is a powerful rechargeable battery. Beside the battery slot is the SD, SDHC, or SDXC memory card which allows videos or playbacks to be played easily.

Price Value

The stylish camcorder sells equally classy videos. The Full HD slow motion video is captured at an impressive 120 fps. Naturally, it comes with a cost. Some may feel that this camera is a little pricey for amateur shooting.

Video & Image Quality

The 17.52 megapixels supported by the sensor Crystal Engine PRO makes the camcorder record noiseless images that are bright and of high quality resolution. So, it is just right for shooting a concert in a dimly lit auditorium or at a dinner party in a restaurant where there isn’t much light. A wide range of scenes can be captured through the camcorder with an Intelligent 50x zoom. The zoom ensures faraway objects are captured vividly in videos. Moving images, such as animals running can also be captured. The 28-mm wide angle viewing ensures that a panoramic view can be taken and recorded in videos. The videos are full high definition ones which have fine detailing even in darker spots. The edges are not broken or blurred. The Hybrid OIS technology corrects movements due to walking. It uses five axes correction to correct shaking while taking close-up shots. Shaking during a zooming session is also removed by the same technology. The videos offer a resolution of (1920 x 1080) pixels at 60 frames per second (fps). For recording portraits or sports or spotlight images, Programmed AE option can be used. The recording times are selected by the user - giving an interesting video album. The progressive video with AVCHD and MP4 file formats are supported. Aided with an autofocus option, the camcorder offers high quality images. If there is a baby in the family, the camcorder can be just what the family needs. The Baby Monitor & Creative Control Modes allow the camcorder to capture various stages of the baby and put them chronologically in photo albums. As the Pre-Record (Pre REC) function remains on, additional video is recording even before user starts recording. So, your baby's first moment will always be captured and secured in video albums.


The sleek and beautiful looking gizmo is user-friendly in its design as well. The buttons and handle to hold the camcorder are comfortably positioned to help the user get a total control on the shooting. It is durable and portable – making it a unique tool to be carried in rough terrain. The sophisticated gadget weighs (2.7 x 2.4 x 4.9) inches and is little weighty at 250 grams (compared to other camcorders). The touchscreen is quite sensitive to finger gestures. It is stylish in design and gels with the outer contour of the camcorder. Panasonic HC-V720 Review
