I occasionally undertake videography on a freelance basis. So, I decided that investing in a good quality camera would be a great addition to my inventory. After having a wander in-store, I opted for the Panasonic HC-V160 Camcorder.
The Panasonic HC-V160 Camcorder comes with a 8.9 megapixel camera and full HD video recording. It also has a built-in image stabiliser, zoom and lens protector. Furthermore, it has a SD memory slot, HDMI/USB outputs, a rechargeable/replaceable battery and an adjustable hand strap.
The camcorder itself is small and compact. It can also be mounted on a tripod. The 2.7″ rotatable LCD display is great for recording and snapping videos or images. There is also a simple menu which makes it easy to use.
On the other hand, zooming in whilst recording a video reduces the quality. Also, the LCD display has to be opened when on charge which can cause damage to the camcorder. Nevertheless, despite these few weaknesses, this camcorder performs well and is worth its price.
Until next time.
