The Panasonic HC-V720 offers a pretty solid set of features. Recording 1080/60p video at 28 Mbps, the video quality should be competitive with similarly priced models. The sensor is also on the larger side for this price point, so still images from the V720 should be excellent as well. This camera features more advanced features like manual focus and iris along with full automatic, plus it is also 3D ready. At this price point, however, we'd expect to see some built in memory, but the V720 is lacking there and you'll need a fast, high capacity card for this model.
