Panasonic HC-X920

Read full Panasonic HC-X920 review

King of the consumer-grade camcorders, the Panasonic HC X920 is the excellent follow-up to the Panasonic HC-X900. The Full 1080p HD shooter packs 3 1/2..3in BSI CMOS sensors with 12.76-megapixels for each sensor to deliver class-leading image quality. Intelligent Zoom is upgraded to 25x and the new Active Mode should help smooth out shakes when you are walking and filming at the same time. It’s capable of recording 3D footage via the VW-CLT2 adapter and built-in Wi-Fi lets you control zoom and record functions from your smartphone or tablet via the Panasonic Android and iOS app. The improved performance and extra Wi-Fi functionality makes this one of the best camcorders to buy.

Price: 947.99

This is an excellent piece of kit. We bought one recently and took it to Italy. I use a Canon 50D for stills and my wife was using this for stills and video. The stills quality was better than I though it would and the video quality is unbelievabe.

Does anyome know of a media streamer that will partner it???? At this point I am just looking for a streamer that excels with video. If it's good for audio than that will save me buying a Sonos later.
