While smartphones are now feature large image sensors and image stabilisation, the need of compact camcorders for recording occasional videos is now a bit diminishing. But still a large number of people prefer camcorders for shooting perfect videos with using all the appropriate features. Companies like Panasonic are making things possible for the people to shoot professional quality videos right from a compact size with their camcorders. Such a camcorder we are testing, known as Panasonic HC-V720. Camcorders, including Panasonic HC-V720, have a number of features that makes a large gap for the smartphones or even for the compact cameras or D-SLRs. With high-zoom, hybrid Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS), wide-angle lens and of course, in a compact size, Panasonic HC-V720 camcorder is a package for shooting video. Can the camcorder be considered as a complete package for shooting videos, we are trying to find out in our in-depth review here.
What’s in the Box
Panasonic HC-V720 camcorder is a mid-range camcorder so we can presume a fair amount of goodies inside the box. Considering the price, the HC-V720 has a decent number of contents to make it a better deal against other camcorders. The box contains Panasonic HC-V720 unit on the top while other contents are available underneath.
There is a battery pack, HDMI to miniHDMI cable, USB to miniUSB data cable, charger, a shoe adapter and a CD come inside our review unit. The company has also provided an 8GB SD card inside the box to persuade the consumers.
