Panasonic HC-X900 Camcorder Review$1,199.00
The X900M has a ton of manual controls, but it doesn't offer anything more than Panasonic's previous flagship models from 2011 and 201 (the TM900 and TM700 respectively). This is a bit of a downer, as we were hoping Panasonic would finally offer true gain control that is not tied to the aperture setting on the camcorder, but the HC-X900M is still limited in this regard. Other than this snafu, the X900M is a solid camcorder with a lot of functions to play with. There's full shutter speed and aperture control, a manual white balance mode, and a number of manual assistance functions like zebra patterns and focus assist.
