6 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic HC-W850

Built-in Flash

The Panasonic HC-W850 has a built-in flash (as does the Panasonic HCX920), whereas the Panasonic HCV180K, the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570 do not have this feature. More ...

'Built-in Flash' denotes whether the camcorder has a flash unit built into it, or whether you have to rely on natural lighting or external flash units.

Remote Operation

The Panasonic HC-W850 supports remote operation, but the Panasonic HCV180K, the Panasonic HCV380K, the Panasonic HCW570 and the Panasonic HCX920 do not. More ...

'Remote Operation' denotes whether the camcorder can be controlled (start/stop recording) by a separate remote, or whether all control has to happen on the device itself.

A remotely operated camera is helpful because it allows you to mount the camera on a tripod and be in your own movies.

Wi-Fi

The Panasonic HC-W850 features Wi-Fi (as do the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570), whereas the Panasonic HCV180K and the Panasonic HCX920 do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Wi-Fi' denotes whether the camcorder is capable of connecting to the net via wifi, in order to upload videos and images.

A wireless connection on your camcorder allows you to easily transfer videos to your computer, store them on the cloud or upload them to Facebook, all without having to worry about connecting via a wire.

Near Field Communication (NFC)

The Panasonic HC-W850 supports Near Field Communication (NFC) (as does the Panasonic HCW570), however the Panasonic HCV180K, the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCX920 do not support this feature. More ...

Near Field Communications (NFC) allows the camcorder to wirelessly communicate with smartphones over very short distances (<1m).

NFC can be used to transfer videos and photos from your camcorder direct to your phone, where you can then share them with friends or upload to Facebook/Twitter/etc.

Better Kagoo Score

The Panasonic HC-W850 has received a Kagoo Score of 82, whereas the Panasonic HCV180K scored 78, the Panasonic HCV380K scored 79, the Panasonic HCW570 scored 78 and the Panasonic HCX920 scored 79.

A Little Better User Reviews

Based on 3 user reviews, the Panasonic HC-W850 has an average review score of 93%, whereas the Panasonic HCX920 has an average rating of 90% (based on 44 reviews).

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic HC-W850

60% Smaller Optical Zoom

The Panasonic HC-W850 is a 20 optical zoom camcorder. That's 30x smaller than the Panasonic HCV180K, the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570 (50x) and 8x bigger than the Panasonic HCX920 (12x). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

A Lot Heavier

The Panasonic HC-W850 has a weight of 360, whereas the Panasonic HCV180K is a 211g camcorder (149g lighter), the Panasonic HCV380K is a 252g camcorder (108g lighter), the Panasonic HCW570 is a 266g camcorder (94g lighter) and the Panasonic HCX920 is a 417g camcorder (57g heavier). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

Smaller Total Megapixels

The Panasonic HC-W850 is a 12.76 camcorder. That's 10.25MP bigger than the Panasonic HCV180K, the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570 (2.51MP) and 25.52MP smaller than the Panasonic HCX920 (38.28MP). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

Vastly Smaller Digital Zoom

The Panasonic HC-W850 has a digital zoom of 1, however the Panasonic HCV180K is a 500x (digital) camcorder (1,000x smaller), the Panasonic HCV380K is a 3,000x (digital) camcorder (1,500x bigger), the Panasonic HCW570 is a 150x (digital) camcorder (1,350x smaller) and the Panasonic HCX920 is a 40x (digital) camcorder (1,460x smaller). More ...

A digital zoom enlarges the pixels in a digital image to make the subject appear closer. Using digital zoom can result in images becoming blurry as the underlying image remains the same.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge a subject without having to move closer. Digital zoom can be used as an alternative to an optical zoom, although it will result in a loss of image quality.

58% Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The Panasonic HC-W850 has a maximum aperture number of 1.8. That's 2.4 lower than the Panasonic HCV180K, the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570 (4.2). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

3.28MP Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Panasonic HC-W850 has an effective megapixels (image) of 5.21, whereas the Panasonic HCV180K is a 1.67MP camcorder (3.54MP lower), the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570 are both 2.2MP camcorders (3.01MP lower) and the Panasonic HCX920 is an 8.49MP camcorder (3.28MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

Panasonic HC-W850 is only 6.03 (movie mode). That's 3.83MP higher than the Panasonic HCV180K, the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570 (2.2MP) and 2.46MP lower than the Panasonic HCX920 (8.49MP). More ...

The resolution of the videos a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed frames and the videos will appear sharper.

0.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Panasonic HC-W850 is a 3 screen size camcorder, and so do the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570. That's 0.3" larger than the Panasonic HCV180K (2.7") and 0.5" smaller than the Panasonic HCX920 (3.5"). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to record and review video and images.

More Expensive by $681

The Panasonic HC-W850 is $681 more expensive than the Panasonic HCV180K, $581 more expensive than the Panasonic HCV380K, $510 more expensive than the Panasonic HCW570 and $66 more expensive than the Panasonic HCX920.

Fewer Sellers

The Panasonic HC-W850 is only stocked by 2 stores, but the Panasonic HCV180K is stocked by 4 sellers and the Panasonic HCV380K is stocked by 4 retailers. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Older by Over One Year

The Panasonic HC-W850 is 22 months older than the Panasonic HCV180K, 22 months older than the Panasonic HCV380K and one year older than the Panasonic HCW570.

Three Less Awards

The Panasonic HC-W850 has only received 4 awards, but the Panasonic HCX920 has received 7 awards.

Expert Review Rating is a Little Worse

The average expert rating of the Panasonic HC-W850 is 88%, whereas the average expert rating of the Panasonic HCX920 is 91% (based on 16 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is a Little Worse

The average overall rating of the Panasonic HC-W850 is 92%, whereas the average overall rating of the Panasonic HCX920 is 94% (based on 60 reviews).

2 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Lower Review Score

Trusted Reviews and Les Numeriques.com both gave the Panasonic HC-W850 a lower review score. More ...

Trusted Reviews: Panasonic HC-W850 = 90% vs Panasonic HCX920 = 100%

Les Numeriques.com: Panasonic HC-W850 = 80% vs Panasonic HCX920 = 100%

The cheapest price that we could find for the HC-W850 in the US is $878.99 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic HCX920

35.77MP Bigger Total Megapixels

The Panasonic HCX920 has a total megapixels of 38.28, however the Panasonic HC-W850 is only a 12.76MP camcorder (25.52MP smaller) and the Panasonic HCV180K, the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570 are all only 2.51MP camcorders (35.77MP smaller). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

45% Higher Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Panasonic HCX920 is an 8.49 camcorder. That's 3.28MP higher than the Panasonic HC-W850 (5.21MP), 6.82MP higher than the Panasonic HCV180K (1.67MP) and 6.29MP higher than the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570 (2.2MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

6.29MP Higher Effective Megapixels (Movie)

The Panasonic HCX920 has an effective megapixels (movie) of 8.49, however the Panasonic HC-W850 is only a 6.03MP (movie mode) camcorder (2.46MP lower) and the Panasonic HCV180K, the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570 are all only 2.2MP (movie mode) camcorders (6.29MP lower). More ...

The resolution of the videos a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed frames and the videos will appear sharper.

Built-in Flash

The Panasonic HCX920 has a built-in flash, and so does the Panasonic HC-W850, but the Panasonic HCV180K, the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570 do not. More ...

'Built-in Flash' denotes whether the camcorder has a flash unit built into it, or whether you have to rely on natural lighting or external flash units.

Larger Display Diagonal

Panasonic HCX920 is 3.5 screen size, but the Panasonic HC-W850, the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570 are all only 3" screen size camcorders (0.5" smaller) and the Panasonic HCV180K is only a 2.7" screen size camcorder (0.8" smaller). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to record and review video and images.

3D

The Panasonic HCX920 is 3D, but the Panasonic HC-W850, the Panasonic HCV180K, the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570 are not. More ...

'3D' denotes whether the camcorder is capable of recording video in 3D or not.

3D videos have the ability to be far more immersive and captivating than standard 2D videos. However be aware that displaying them requires a monitor or TV that is capable of displaying 3D videos, and a set of glasses to allow you to view them properly.

Seven More Awards

The Panasonic HCX920 has received 7 awards, however the Panasonic HC-W850 has received 4 awards, the Panasonic HCV180K has received no awards, the Panasonic HCV380K has received no awards and the Panasonic HCW570 has received no awards.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic HCV180K

38x Bigger Optical Zoom

The Panasonic HCV180K has an optical zoom of 50 (as do the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570), however the Panasonic HC-W850 is only a 20x optical zoom camcorder (30x smaller) and the Panasonic HCX920 is only a 12x optical zoom camcorder (38x smaller). More ...

2.4 Higher Maximum Aperture Number

Panasonic HCV180K is 4.2 maximum aperture value (as do the Panasonic HCV380K and the Panasonic HCW570), but the Panasonic HC-W850 is only a 1.8 maximum aperture value camcorder (2.4 lower). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

$100 Cheaper
