Panasonic HC-V700M reviews:

In their review of the HC-V700M, experts of pcmag.com website say:

In terms of pure video performance, it’s hard to find fault with the Panasonic HC-V700M. It delivered some of the sharpest and most detail-rich video we’ve seen in a midrange consumer camcorder.

The camcorderinfo.com website notes that the optical image stabilization of HC-V700M works very well for a mid-range camcorder and it is able to reduce the shakiness by more than 50% in both their high-shake and low-shake tests.

Another HC-V700M review comes from techradar.com, that concludes:

And most of all, motion is handled just brilliantly. Video is totally smooth, and the high bitrates mean there’s little artefacting, even in fast pans. And it’s always nice to be able to have some slow motion without impacting image quality.

Sony HDR-PJ650 reviews:

The camcorderinfo.com website reviews the Sony HDR-PJ650 camcorder and writes:

The most important addition is the new multi-control wheel on the front side, below and to the left of the lens. This feature was a good idea when it debuted at the high end of Sony’s camcorder lineup, though it’s the first time we’ve seen it on a $1,000-ish model.


Another Sony HDR-PJ650 review comes from digitalversus.com website, that concludes:

The Sony HDR-PJ650VE is a very good camcorder that has a nice range of functions and features (GPS, 12x zoom, 5.1 sound, mic. and headphones sockets, built-in projector, SD recording more, etc.). The optical stabilisation system is particularly effective here, but picture quality isn’t quite on par with its main rival, the Panasonic X920, which also boasts Wi-Fi connectivity.
