Smart-Review Commentary: The new HC-V720V is the successor to last year’s highly rated HC-700V. As with last year’s model, this model has a large 1/2.33″ high sensitivity imaging sensor and a fast f1.8 lens to perform better in low light situations. Its 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. + optical image stabilization will keep your video from blurring, even in low light. A new feature is built-in WIFI (802.11b/g/n), which allows you to wirelessly transmit your video from your camcorder to the internet. You can also control your camcorder from your smartphone, tablet, or laptop. The 60 frames/second recording mode will give you smoother and more lifelike HD video, especially for fast moving action like sports. A rarity on inexpensive camcorders is an external microphone jack, which will provide you with many options to get better audio to go with the exceptional video of this camcorder. The resolution of the 3.0-inch LCD screen has doubled from last year, making it easier for you to compose your video. As with last year’s model, this is an excellent low priced and feature packed HD camcorder. The Panasonic V720k is a Smart-Review top pick for 2013.
