Product Description

Panasonic HC-X920 HD Camcorder--Wi-Fi Enabled, Semi-professional Camcorder with 3MOS System PRO

Panasonic's semi-professional camcorders have long been regarded as providing the pinnacle of image quality and Panasonic's new HC-X920 with built in Wi-Fi is no exception. Equipped with the New 3MOS System PRO, this model uses the BSI (Back Side Illumination) Sensor to enhance the three MOS sensors for excellent shooting performance even in dim lighting situations. Technically specified at every angle, the new HC-X920 offer consumers professional features and professional-like image quality.

Panasonic Camcorder
World's 1st Back Side Illuminated 3MOS Sensor. Click for larger image
3MOS 1/2.3" (8.49M) BSI Sensor - World first for 3MOS consumer camcorder

One of the reasons why the X920 performs like a semi-professional camcorder is that it uses three image sensors (one for each of the primary colours - Red, Blue and Green) instead of the usual one sensor with colour filters. This is the same 3 sensor system that is used for professional broadcast cameras and renders the video image with outstanding colour fidelity and detail. Back Side Illuminated (BSI) sensors provide a better performance in low light and have recently been introduced for some mobile camera products. But for the first time ever, the X920 incorporates this advanced sensor technology to a 3MOS camcorder. The result is excellent picture performance even when shooting indoors.

Smart Sharing Features with Built in Wi-Fi

We are in an exciting new era of Wi-Fi enabled devices. Offering amazing new functionality, previously unavailable to camcorders, that brings a whole new level of convenient control. Features like: Remote Monitor and Shooting, Remote Browsing and Remote Sharing.

Panasonic Camcorder
Broadcast your recordings with USTREAM.
Live Stream HD Recordings using USTREAM App

This camcorder is compatible with USTREAM Live Streaming, which means that during recording in HD you can wirelessly stream the video to USTREAM. Any one that has access to the USTREAM App on their Smart TV, Computer or Smartphone can then watch your live broadcast. This is great for family events when other members of the family cannot be there in person but can enjoy it on their compatible device.

Panasonic Camcorder
Control remotely from Smartphone or Tablet device. Click for larger image
Remote Monitoring & Shooting Control with Smartphone

Using the "Peer to Peer" or Wi-Fi function in the camcorder, the picture and sound can be monitored externally and controlled remotely by the connected smart device.

Remote Browsing & Streaming Playback via DLNA

If you have a compatible DLNA equipped smart TV or handheld device, you can browse and view your recordings directly over your wireless network. This means you no longer need to connect the camcorder to the TV with the AV cable or even take out the SD card and insert it in the TV. Just sit back with the family and enjoy the results of your video handy work wirelessly.

Remote Sharing - Social Network Site (SNS) Video Upload

Not only can you enjoy videos and still pictures remotely on your Smartphone, but you can also upload the content directly to your favourite Social Network sites like YouTube and Facebook. Now it's even easier to share your movies or photos with friends on your social network.

Wide 29.8mm LEICA (F1.5) Lens

A special Nano surface coating is applied to the bright F1.5 Leica Dicomar Lens. This excellent quality lens minimises the distortion and degradation that tend to occur at the lens edge and suppresses ghosting and flare. In addition, the 29.8mm wide-angle setting is especially handy for recording indoors or in tight spaces.

x25 Intelligent-zoom (Optical x12)

The X920 doesn't just offer a good optical zoom, it also features a powerful "Intelligent Zoom", a clever combination of optical and digital technology to get you even closer to your subject. The powerful image processing of the Crystal engine pro means that a high quality image can be created from the telephoto lens that is equivalent to a 25x magnification (more than double the optical zoom limit).

3.5" Touch Panel 1.15M pixels, 3D Lenticular, LCD Screen

The X920 features an extremely high-resolution 1,152,000-dot 8.8-cm/3.5-inch wide 3D-compatible LCD. This makes it possible to check 3D effects by setting the screen to 3D lenticular mode (no glasses required) when shooting in 3D*. When shooting, you can use Touch Zoom to instantly zoom in and out by simply touching with a fingertip, and Touch Shutter to automatically focus and take still images by simply touching the subject on the screen. For playback, you can also change thumbnail pages by sliding a fingertip across the screen. You get smooth, intuitive operation and don't have to take your eyes off of the LCD screen. *Full HD 3D recording requires optional VW-CLT2 3D conversion lens.

Built-in 0.27" Electronic Viewfinder

A full colour, 263,424 pixels electronic viewfinder is built-in for monitoring the image from the 3MOS sensor. Offering 100% field-of-view, it enables accurate composition of your movies when holding the camera close to your eye.

Manual Control Ring

For a pro-camera feel, the control ring around the lens barrel can be used for manual zoom or focus control.

The camera compensates if you are not shooting level. Click for larger image
Level Shot Auto Correction Function

A new feature for 2013 models is the "Level Shot" correction function. If you inadvertently shoot a video when the camera is not level, the unit will detect the tilt and an internal correction is made to the image that means the recording is made level.

Panasonic Camcorder
Hybrid O.I.S. thoroughly suppresses blurring caused my several types of movement. Click for larger image
5-axis Hybrid+ Power O.I.S.

HYBRID O.I.S. Plus uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring caused by camera shake, all the way from wide-angle to powerful zoom shots. It's also very effective when shooting while walking. This lets the user capture crisp, clear images, without blurring, in almost every shooting situation.

1080/50p AVCHD Progressive Video Recording

1080/50p recording (Full-HD 1920 x 1080, 50 progressive recording) at a 28-Mbps bit rate conveys about twice the information of 1080i (interlace) recording to produce ultimately beautiful image quality. It minimizes afterimages and flickering caused by subject motion, and renders crisp, detailed images with smooth-looking motion even when shooting a fast-moving subject in a sports event.

iA+Auto Shooting Mode

iA Plus allows an element of fine tuning to the colour and brightness settings allowing you to easily experiment with the overall look of the shot before you take the picture.

Panasonic Camcorder
Shoot with creative video effects. Click for larger image
Creative Control for Adding Video Effects

You can shoot with any of the four interesting video effects to give an authentic look to your videos. These effects are available during record mode: Miniature, 8mm Retro Movie, Silent Retro Movie and Interval (Time-lapse) record.

20.4MP Still Picture Capture Mode

Digital Still pictures can be taken with this camcorder in three aspect ratios: 16:9, 4:3 and 3:2. Depending on the aspect ratio chosen, images with a resolution up to a staggering 20.4 mega pixels can be taken. This is very useful as it means the camcorder can be used to take photos when you do not have a Digital Still Camera available.

5.1 Channel Zoom, Gun Mic & New Wind Canceller

Five microphones are used to capture sound from all directions. When played back through a 5.1 channel sound system you can enjoy realistic surround sound effects. The Zoom Mic option allows the directionality of the microphone to zoom in conjunction with the telephoto zoom. And a new wind canceller reduces the wind noise coming into the built-in microphones while maintaining a realistic sound.

Microphone & Headphone Terminal

Just like professional video cameras, an external stereo microphone input is included as well as a headphone socket to allow monitoring of the recorded sound.

3D Conversion lens (FHD Frame Sequential) Recording Option

With the optional VW-CLT2 3D conversion lens fitted, it is possible to record in AVCHD 3D format. This format captures each left and right image separately and saves them as Frame Sequential Full HD images. When played back on a compatible 3D display, the amazing spectacle of shooting your own 3D movie can be enjoyed.

I ordered this camera after much research. I am an amateur short film maker, but, was looking for a camera capable of providing full manual control and very good images without the price tag of a full pro rig. I also needed it to be large enough to provide stability in the hand and small enough to be easily carried on holiday and city breaks.

Amazon was selling at a good price and so I placed my order. The camera arrived next day, well done Amazon, and I have to say that although I have only had time to make some quick test shots, I am already falling in love with this camera. Size is perfect, looking like the serious camera that it is, but, also small enough and light enough to be easily carried around. The menu system is readily accessible and appears easy to use. The picture quality is amazing with good sharp images within the optical zoom range (yet to test the enhanced zoom) and excellent colour balance. The manual control of camera settings and the ability to use the manual ring to control zoom, focus or iris is a brilliant feature although for much general shooting the iA automatic setting seems to provide the ideal set up and will be much used by many people.

So far so good! I hope to be doing some serious shooting over the next few weeks and so I will update this review if any particular problems are encountered, but, I'm really not anticipating any at this time.

UPDATE: 4 months later and I am still delighted with this camera. Some great results and fulfilling all my requirements. I have added a full lens hood and Rode Stereo video mike (useful stuby shape allows use directly on hotshoe mount without appearing on wide angle view as some longer mikes do) If you want pro quality HD video, but in a sensibly sized package, you wont go far wrong with this camera.

My previous Panasonic 3-chip consumer video camera was a 15 year old, standard definition, DV tape model. Image quality of the X 920 is of course far better; it's smaller and lighter than the last century equivalent while the LCD screen is thinner, clearer and touch-sensitive.

Although it's relatively unusual to find one at all on most consumer cameras, the viewfinder is a disappointment. Usefully, pulling it out turns on the camera but there is no up and down adjustment so in all but bright sunlight, the LCD screen is the best bet for picture composition.

And it's the LCD screen that provides access to the X 920's almost bewildering array of options, adjustments and settings. Everything from zebra-pattern overlay to an exposure-assistance histogram display, face-recognition recording to manual audio level adjustment is on hand.

But you can point and shoot...IA (Intelligent Auto) will automatically set up optimum white balance, focus and aperture for Portrait, Scenery, Spotlight (very bright) and Low Light conditions and claims to do so simply by pressing the IA button then pointing at what it is you want to shoot!

Scarily, perhaps, I've found this works so well that with one or two exceptions I really cannot better it under full manual control, which in any case is much slower to set up.

IA+ mode offers the features of IA plus manual adjustment of colour balance and brightness while Creative Control gives a Miniature (diorama) effect, a "faded" feel described as 8mm , an overall darker look Panasonic calls Silent Movie plus a more useful and configurable Time Lapse facility.

Scene mode provides ten more auto settings for situations ranging from Sports and Soft Skin(!) to Night Portrait and Fireworks.

I haven't owned a camcorder since 2002 - and I can scarcely believe the recording quality and ease of operation of this one. When I played back the first test recording on our TV via the included HDMI cable, my wife and I both gasped at what looked every bit as good as a live TV broadcast. If you're wondering if this is worth its price, it isn't - it's worth far more! (Low light performance is outstanding, too.)

The camera itself is very light and easy to handle. Excellent clear touchscreen and a big lens for great low-light results. The option of capturing video in MP4 format does away with the hassles of processing AVCHD and makes this a particularly good camera for use with Mac iMovie. With both iMovie and Adobe Premier Pro the captured MP4 drops straight in to a project, nothing else needed. A special mention too for the macro ability of this camera both in still and video modes. Amazing results!

First let me say that my initial reaction to this camera is that it is the best movie camera that I have ever owned ~ and I have been taking movie films since 1952.. It isn't a showy camera ~ in fact it is so inconspicuous that you can take pictures in conditions where you might otherwise be asked to move on. It gives perfect color reproduction. It will produce great pictures in minimal lighting conditions. The lens is bitingly sharp. The only technical snag that I've found with it is that the auto color change when moving from one light condition to another is a tad slow ~ but once it has fixed itself the adjustment is perfect. I could recommend this camera to anyone BUT ~ yes there is a BUT, and it's a worrying one ~ the camera is advertised as possessing a 3MOS PRO processor. Get that? 3MOS PRO!The 3MOS suggests that the camera possesses 3 processors ~ and so it does! and the PRO suggests that it is suitable for professional use. But AFTER you have opened up the SEALED BOX you come to the instructions book, and at the end of the instructions book, in small letters, you are told that the camera which you have just bought is LICENSED FOR AMATEUR USE ONLY. The good news is that after a good deal of research I received the assurance of the Director of the copyright agency that nothing in this clause is intended to apply to the USER of the camera ~ it is a confusingly worded reference to the licence agreement which PANASONIC has with the owner of some of the software that makes it work. THAT BEING SO I CAN RECOMMEND THIS CAMERA FOR PRODUCING THE BEST MOVIE PICTURES POSSIBLE THIS SIDE OF 4K.
