We think the Panasonic camcorder could, and really should, offer stronger image quality for the money. But we couldn't have got the shots in our sample video without it, and for that, we think it'll still be thoroughly worth the investment for some people anyway.

Panasonic's new flagship consumer camcorder, the HC-X920 is more of a major upgrade than its subtle name change over its HC-X900 predecessor would imply. But the HC-V720 is a bit less of a leap from the HC-V700 it replaces. This is because its...
