Panasonic HC-V770 Review

The Panasonic HC-V770 is a top HD-only 1080 camcorder from Panasonic. When the company released their flagship models the HC-VX870 and HC-WX970 boasting their 4K features, it made the HC-V770 its leader in the 1080p recording class.

The HC-V770is based around a 1/2.3in 12.76 megapixel CMOS found in Panasonics HC-W850.It allows you to capture scenes with its 20x Optical Zoom in detail or boost it to 50x with the Intelligent Zoom which it harnesses from the 12.76MP sensor. The other 6.03 megapixels are used to take crisp videos and photos which surpasses Full HD quality while the remaining sensor resolution is put to use in the Hybrid Optical Image Stabilization. This enables the HC-V770 to compensate for horizontal, vertical and rotational movement compensation along its axis. The HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode makes use of Intelligent Contrast to capture back lighted subjects without adjusting the brightness up using the backlight compensation.The combination of these features makes it a very effective camera.

What customers have to say about the camcorder:

“Haven’t used it a lot, but what video I have captured has been really terrific. The quality is crystal clear on my computer and 65 inch TV. The iPad/phone control of the device is just fantastic and could be a tool someone could use for many, many uses.”

“The contents of the bundle are clearly well picked – they weren’t just trying to fill the box with junk – they have picked out the essentials that are useful and of decent quality.

The video quality is perfect for the projects I create for a pet youtube channel where a 4k priced camera would be going overboard. It is lightweight and a good size for holding (not overly large or small). The autofocus option is surprisingly smooth when zooming in and out.”

“The Camcorder is crystal clear with an amazing zoom with many other features. The memory card works fine and has room for many shots. The external light is a bit more brighter than the built in light, but the built in light is still bright. The tripod works for me along with the SD card reader that I needed for my desktop. It also came with a lense cleaning kit and a bag that will fit everything accept for the tripod.”
