From the manufacturer
Catch all of nature’s beauty
A compact camcorder that captures video recording in 4K resolution allowing 4K stills of unmissable moments and pro-quality films.
It’s easier than ever to capture masterful 4K videos and photos thanks to high speed, high precision autofocus.
With Smooth Zoom, you get smooth zooming without any zoom blur. It's also easy to zoom in on an off-centre subject without manoeuvering the camera angle.
Enjoy smooth and exact panning, too, by simply selecting the start and end points.
You can choose a person to be tracked from a video and the camcorder automatically keeps the object in the cropped area.
Even after shooting, you can compensate for shaking thanks to automatic adjustment of the cropping position. The result is more stable, clear footage.
Flexibility to shoot
The Electronic ViewFinder (EVF) lets you easily shoot in bright daylight, while contributing to proper viewing.
The slide and tilt mechanism gives you flexibility to shoot from various positions. The detachable eyecup can comfortably fit either eye.
High-Quality Core Technologies
In addition to rendering crisp images, the remarkable LEICA Dicomar lens produces the subtle nuances and shading that LEICA lenses are renowned for, with minimised ghosting and flaring.
By increasing the read-out speed of the recording, the BSI Sensor with approximately 8 M effective pixels suppresses distortion to give an accurate rendering of the scene.
Crystal Engine 4K
The Crystal Engine 4K features a high-speed, large-scale integrated circuit to process the huge volume of 4K data quickly and accurately while reducing noise.
Wireless Multi Camera
Add extra emotion to your footage.
Enjoy a new kind of shooting style that lets you add even more emotion to your movies. Using Wi-Fi, you can link to as many as three smartphones and simultaneously record up to two of them as sub-windows. These sub-window images can be interchanged and their display positions can be switched. This lets you shoot from a variety of angles and viewpoints, to capture a higher level of emotional impact.
HDR (High Dynamic Range) Movie
Get clear shots with high detail.
Enjoy crisper, clearer videos thanks to the HDR Movie function. It combines two images taken with different exposures to suppress blown highlights and blocked shadows. Even in difficult shooting situations, such as backlighting, you can easily capture natural videos with excellent gradation. A dedicated HDR button enables quick mode changes when necessary.
Note: This function is not available with 4K mode nor with 24p mode.
Cinema Like Effect
While shooting with Slow and Quick Video*, you can combine slow and quick motion for active scenes to achieve pro-like effects.
Normally difficult to accomplish manually, slow zooming is easy with Slow Zoom, which lets you express emotional shifts in your subjects.
Dolly Zoom* zooms in on the background only while maintaining the subject's size to express feelings such as confusion, distress or surprise.
With smooth Slow Motion Video*, you can turn everyday scenes into works of art.
* Available only with MP4 1080/28M format.

The picture quality is superb, resolution needle sharp and the controls are well laid out and easy to use. If you pan too quickly, it tells you and the viewfinder screen is large and easily adjusted.
In short, I agree that this is the best quality camcorder in the price range and give it my highest possible recommendation. My only advice is, get another battery, with as long a life as you can manage and also get the fastest SD card to store your footage on. If you're new to this, there is a massive difference between the cards that fit this camcorder and you need to get a SDXC card to make the most of the 4K film ability. I've bought a 64GB SDXC card which will be perfect for lots of footage in a remote area but it did cost around £180 for the card.
Get a decent camcorder bag to protect it too - I bought the Lowepro SH110 II Adventura Bag but had to return it because it was a bit too small (the camcorder comes with a front hood and it wouldn't fit in the bag with the hood on (without distorting the rubber eyepiece at the rear) and there was little additional room for the spare battery and cables. So I would go for a slightly larger bag.
BUT, It's delicate. Really delicate. Can't toss it around as I did with my previous model - Panasonic SD90 which is a dust-proof, water-proof, death-proof TANK.
The 980 feels plasticky in hand, and if you squeeze it harder, your in-camera microphone will pick up the cracks! Need external mic definitely.
Other than that the video quality is top notch. Believe it or not, the Image Stabiliser is TOO GOOD for tripod use! make sure you turn that off.
It is really very small (I like my cameras heavier and larger) but it has all the necessary ports and options. Small niggle? The port covers, though nicer than most I have encountered in that they slide not pull open, slide open too easily.
OK- so I am a bit annoyed by the automation and the inability to permanently create preferred user settings for the dial at the front, but I will live. At the end of the day it is a consumer camera, not a professional and the trend is to automating so much these days across all of these cameras.
I tested the mic and can say that it is not half bad. I did the test under quite extreme conditions (close quarters at a live blues gig with a sound engineer who likes to really crank it up) and it performed reasonably well for the acoustic set, not so good when the gig turned electric. It will clip but the compensation is actually way better than my Panasonic HVX200 inbuilt. More then adequate for using in non-concert situations (and, for me, as reference sound like never before) and will be used with an external sound recorder such as a ZOOM in future. Again- ports-a-plenty.
