Panasonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Camcorders

On average Panasonic camcorders are rated 86 out of 100, which is in the top 7% of all video camera manufacturers that we have analysed.


Display

Quite Large Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 3.48 inches, the HDC-Z10000 has one of the larger display diagonals amongst medium total megapixels camcorders of this age. The display diagonals of comparable spec video cameras that were released more than two years ago range from 1.5" to 4".

If you would prefer a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the Panasonic AG-AC90 ($2,414.50) (3.5"), or the JVC GY-HMQ10 (3.5").
