Panasonic HC V-270 || Unboxing || Review
The HC-V270 is one of the two Panasonic camcorders in the 2015 lineup that are priced below the 20,000 INR level. The Panasonic HC-V270 closely hits that 19,000/- mark while the is about little cheaper. It is best to treat the HC-V130 as an ultra-budget-conscious camcorder leaving as a true entry-level device that is worthy of being an individual’s first camcorder.
Panasonic is more often than not the company to beat in the consumer digital camcorder category. Panasonic’s lead is so obvious that the company got a little bit lazy this 2015 and made only minor improvements across the board. Still, it is better than not releasing anything at all because consumers always need to know that digital camcorders will continue to evolve every year even if smartphones and DSLRs are becoming replacements that are more popular. Even a cheap Panasonic camcorder like the Panasonic HC-V270 can do so much more than smartphone and still beat many of the pricier DSLR cameras in video quality.
The HC-V270 is compatible with the Panasonic’s Remote Pan Tilt Cradle accessory. The accessory is useful if you can stomach the $165 price. You place the Panasonic HC-V270 on top of the cradle and let the camcorder’s Face Recognition functionality and motion sensor do the rest. On its own, the cradle can lock on a face and pan to follow that face while actively recording the scene making it great for parties where nobody is willing to hold the camera. You can actually control the panning and tilting through Wi-Fi using the Panasonic Image App on your mobile device.
