Panasonic HC-VX870K Vs HC-WX970 4k Ultra HD Camcorder

By Peter Chubb - Nov 16, 2015

You might not think it, but people really do still use camcorders. We know that their popularity has slipped since smartphone cameras have gotten much better, although they still have a long way to go to offer the same sort of quality and features, which is why the likes of Panasonic still tries to push its camcorder range.

We have found two that are very impressive in terms of their design, specs and features. Those models are the Panasonic HC-VX870K and the HC-WX970 (or HC-WX970K as some people now it) 4k Ultra HD camcorder, both of which are very similar in their features.

Take the HC-VX870K4K Ultra HD Camcorder for example, Panasonic describe this as the model with Wireless Smartphone Twin Video Capture, which is future-proofed with 4K Ultra HD video recording, as well as 4K photo pause.

This means that you are able to sync a second smartphone to this model to use its video camera wirelessly for a picture-in-picture effect. And also, the ability to record and shoot in Ultra HD.

As for the HC-WX970 from Panasonic, its main selling point and how it differs to the model above is being able to use a second video camera or a smartphone as the HC-VX870K. It does come with all the other features as that model, such as 20x Optical Zoom with 4-Drive Lens System, Creative Control, Full-HD Slow Motion Video, High-Quality Sound Recording and Core Technologies, and so much more.

Looking on the Panasonic website we can see that the Panasonic HC-VX870K price is $100 cheaper than the HC-WX970 and so to help with that buying decision we have included a review video of both of these models for your viewing pleasure below.

    其实不想骂,但想想有点氣,用几千元购买名牌高科技4k 摄录机 但令我大失所望 用不到两个月 名牌机尽然要送厂维修,我当理论是否可换一部新机 居然被拒绝 只能够维修零件 没得换新 一个著名品牌打造摄录机,沒品质保证吗? 竟然两个月就要进厂维修了 不是几百元 不是两三千元的货品 进厂维修还要等一个月时间哦 我的损失谁来负责? 再说摄录机拿来拍摄不是用一两天就拿去收藏 等下一次要用才会拿出来 我是经常使用者 怎么快就完蛋了 我对这Panasonic 4 k 大失望 广告打着那么強 品質那么差 我这个屬於專业摄影者总认为厂商应该负起责任,不只是维修而已 应该管制品質处理。今天我往维修中心大骂一场,品牌公司别用老千方式来行商。
