Panasonic HC-X900 Camcorder Review
If you're looking for fancy new features or updates, Panasonic's latest flagship camcorder is likely to disappoint.
The HC-X900M is the replacement for last year's HDC-TM900 flagship HD camcorder from Panasonic, but if you're looking for hot new features or exciting updates then you should prepare to be disappointed. Other than a few design alterations and some slight tweaks to the lens and sensor, the HC-X900 is identical to its predecessor. According to our tests, the camcorder didn't offer a huge improvement in performance or image quality, and it lacks any special new features that weren't also available on the TM900.
At this time, the HC-X900M is still unavailable for purchase in the US. You can pre-order it from a variety of retailers, and Panasonic lists the expected MSRP at $1199.
