The Panasonic HC-V720 is an impressive camcorder, especially when you consider its price. Its features aren't pro level, but the video quality is a step above others in its class, and there's built-in Wi-Fi for remote control and live streaming. quote

Given the excellent foundation it's building upon, namely the Panasonic V700, we've high hopes for its core picture quality. Plus, the extra features on offer here mean even owners of the V700 may have a few excuses to upgrade.

NFC is the most eye-catching feature on the new model. This allows it to quickly be connected to other NFC-capable devices such as many smartphones and tablets (as long as they aren't made by Apple).
