Following up on last year's V700, Panasonic's new HC-V720 (MSRP $549.99) seems to have the same mission as its predecessor: provide a highly competitive yet highly affordable model, that's accessible to beginners, but uncompromising when it comes to image quality. Instead, those compromises are made elsewhere. The V720 is light on features compared to more expensive models, but the features that do exist, or have been added this year, are mostly very compelling.
