If you're looking at Panasonic camcorders and you don't want to spend $1,000 on the flagship HC-X920, you still have a couple of decent options. The HC-V720 and HC-V520 both include new WiFi features, impressive zoom capabilities, and improved performance over their predecessors. If you're on a tight budget, your wallet is sure to gravitate towards the HC-V520—it's cheap (under $400), compact, and certainly not intimidating. But for an extra $150 the HC-V720 gets you better performance and more bang for your buck. Check out our video for the full details on this head-to-head matchup.
