11 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic HCVX870EBK

A Lot Bigger Total Megapixels

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK has a total megapixels of 18.91 (as do the Panasonic HCVX980EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990), whereas the Panasonic HCVX1EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK are both only 8.57MP camcorders (10.34MP smaller). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

Full HD

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK is Full HD, and so are the Panasonic HCVX1EBK, the Panasonic HCVX980EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990, but the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK is not. More ...

A full HD camcorder captures video with a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD camcorders capture more pixels which make the recording appear sharper compared to camcorders with a lower resolution.

Built-in Flash

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK has a built-in flash, and so do the Panasonic HCVX980EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990, however the Panasonic HCVX1EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK do not. More ...

'Built-in Flash' denotes whether the camcorder has a flash unit built into it, or whether you have to rely on natural lighting or external flash units.

Remote Operation

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK supports remote operation (as do the Panasonic HCVX1EBK and the Panasonic HCVX980EBK), whereas the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990 do not support this feature. More ...

'Remote Operation' denotes whether the camcorder can be controlled (start/stop recording) by a separate remote, or whether all control has to happen on the device itself.

A remotely operated camera is helpful because it allows you to mount the camera on a tripod and be in your own movies.

7 Times Higher Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK supports a still image resolution of 4992 x 2808, which is 7 times higher still image resolution as the Panasonic HCVX1EBK, the Panasonic HCVX980EBK, the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD)). More ...

Image resolution is a measurement of how many pixels make up a single image taken with the camcorder.

A higher image resolution means that the photos taken with the camcorder will be more detailed and sharper, and you'll be able to pick out smaller detailed far better. They will also far more suited to being enlarged, and can be blown up to larger sizes without blurring or losing detail.

Near Field Communication (NFC)

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK supports Near Field Communication (NFC), but the Panasonic HCVX1EBK, the Panasonic HCVX980EBK, the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990 do not. More ...

Near Field Communications (NFC) allows the camcorder to wirelessly communicate with smartphones over very short distances (<1m).

NFC can be used to transfer videos and photos from your camcorder direct to your phone, where you can then share them with friends or upload to Facebook/Twitter/etc.

Night Mode

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK has a night mode (as does the Panasonic HCVX1EBK), whereas the Panasonic HCVX980EBK, the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990 do not have this feature. More ...

'Night Mode' denotes whether the camcorder has a special mode for shooting video at night - it does this by upping the light taken in by the lens of the camcorder, leading to a brighter recorded image.

Camcorders usually struggle to record video in low-light conditions - a specially designed night mode fixes that.

Better Kagoo Score

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK has received a Kagoo Score of 85, however the Panasonic HCVX1EBK scored 83, the Panasonic HCVX980EBK scored 84, the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK scored 82 and the Panasonic HCVXF990 scored 83.

£50 Cheaper

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK costs £99.99 less than the Panasonic HCVX1EBK, costs £50 less than the Panasonic HCVX980EBK, costs £250 less than the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK and costs £150 less than the Panasonic HCVXF990.

More Popular

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a more popular choice amongst buyers.

One More Award

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK has received 1 award, whereas the Panasonic HCVX1EBK has received no awards, the Panasonic HCVX980EBK has received no awards, the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK has received no awards and the Panasonic HCVXF990 has received no awards.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic HCVX870EBK

17% Smaller Optical Zoom

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK has an optical zoom of 20 (as do the Panasonic HCVX980EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990), however the Panasonic HCVX1EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK are both 24x optical zoom camcorders (4x bigger). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

1% Heavier

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a 353 camcorder. That's 75g lighter than the Panasonic HCVX1EBK (428g), 2g heavier than the Panasonic HCVX980EBK (351g), 97g lighter than the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK (450g) and 43g lighter than the Panasonic HCVXF990 (396g). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

Smaller Digital Zoom

Panasonic HCVX870EBK is only 60 (digital). That's 10x smaller than the Panasonic HCVX1EBK (70x), 1,440x smaller than the Panasonic HCVX980EBK (1,500x) and 190x smaller than the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990 (250x). More ...

A digital zoom enlarges the pixels in a digital image to make the subject appear closer. Using digital zoom can result in images becoming blurry as the underlying image remains the same.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge a subject without having to move closer. Digital zoom can be used as an alternative to an optical zoom, although it will result in a loss of image quality.

1.8 Lower Maximum Aperture Number

Panasonic HCVX870EBK is only 1.8 maximum aperture value (as do the Panasonic HCVX1EBK and the Panasonic HCVX980EBK), but the Panasonic HCVXF990 is a 3.6 maximum aperture value camcorder (1.8 higher). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

16% Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a 7 camcorder, and so do the Panasonic HCVX980EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990. That's 1.29MP lower than the Panasonic HCVX1EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK (8.29MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

50% Smaller Maximum Memory Card Size

The Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a 64 maximum memory card size camcorder. That's 64GB smaller than the Panasonic HCVX1EBK (128GB). More ...

Using memory cards in addition to the camcorder's internal storage increases the time the camcorder can record video.

Using a larger memory card allows the user to record video for longer and at higher resolution.

39% Shorter Maximum Battery Life

Panasonic HCVX870EBK is only 0.92 battery life. That's 0.17h longer than the Panasonic HCVX1EBK (0.75h) and 0.58h shorter than the Panasonic HCVX980EBK (1.5h). More ...

'Maximum Battery Life' indicates how long the camcorder is capable of recording video for, measured in hours.

A longer battery life allows you to record video for longer before recharging the camcorder or changing the battery.

Less Retailers

Only 3 retailers sells the Panasonic HCVX870EBK, whereas 7 shops sell the Panasonic HCVX1EBK, 5 sellers sell the Panasonic HCVX980EBK, 5 sellers sell the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK and 4 retailers sell the Panasonic HCVXF990. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.

Built-in Microphone

The Panasonic HCVX980EBK has a built-in microphone (as does the Panasonic HCVXF990), however the Panasonic HCVX1EBK, the Panasonic HCVX870EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK do not have this feature. More ...

'Built-In Microphone' denotes whether the camcorder has a microphone built into the body of the device, in order to record audio along with the video.

A built-in microphone isn't going to be as high quality as a professional mic, but it's a good alternative if you want to record audio alongside your home videos.

Longer Maximum Battery Life

The Panasonic HCVX980EBK has a maximum battery life of 1.5. That's 0.58h longer than the Panasonic HCVX1EBK and the Panasonic HCVX870EBK (0.92h). More ...

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic HCVX1EBK

15% Bigger Optical Zoom

The Panasonic HCVX1EBK is a 24 optical zoom camcorder, and so does the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK. That's 4x bigger than the Panasonic HCVX870EBK, the Panasonic HCVX980EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990 (20x). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

Full HD

The Panasonic HCVX1EBK is a Full HD camcorder (as are the Panasonic HCVX870EBK, the Panasonic HCVX980EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990), but the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK is not. More ...

A full HD camcorder captures video with a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD camcorders capture more pixels which make the recording appear sharper compared to camcorders with a lower resolution.

14% Higher Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Panasonic HCVX1EBK has an effective megapixels (image) of 8.29 (as does the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK), however the Panasonic HCVX870EBK, the Panasonic HCVX980EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990 are all only 7MP camcorders (1.29MP lower). More ...

The resolution of the images a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

64GB Larger Maximum Memory Card Size

The Panasonic HCVX1EBK has a maximum memory card size of 128, whereas the Panasonic HCVX870EBK is only a 64GB maximum memory card size camcorder (64GB smaller). More ...

Using memory cards in addition to the camcorder's internal storage increases the time the camcorder can record video.

Using a larger memory card allows the user to record video for longer and at higher resolution.

Remote Operation

The Panasonic HCVX1EBK supports remote operation, and so do the Panasonic HCVX870EBK and the Panasonic HCVX980EBK, whereas the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990 do not. More ...

'Remote Operation' denotes whether the camcorder can be controlled (start/stop recording) by a separate remote, or whether all control has to happen on the device itself.

A remotely operated camera is helpful because it allows you to mount the camera on a tripod and be in your own movies.

Night Mode

The Panasonic HCVX1EBK has a night mode, and so does the Panasonic HCVX870EBK, whereas the Panasonic HCVX980EBK, the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990 do not. More ...

'Night Mode' denotes whether the camcorder has a special mode for shooting video at night - it does this by upping the light taken in by the lens of the camcorder, leading to a brighter recorded image.

Camcorders usually struggle to record video in low-light conditions - a specially designed night mode fixes that.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic HCVX1EBK

16% Heavier

The Panasonic HCVX1EBK has a weight of 428, however the Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a 353g camcorder (75g lighter), the Panasonic HCVX980EBK is a 351g camcorder (77g lighter), the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK is a 450g camcorder (22g heavier) and the Panasonic HCVXF990 is a 396g camcorder (32g lighter). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

55% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Panasonic HCVX1EBK is an 8.57 camcorder, and so does the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK. That's 10.34MP smaller than the Panasonic HCVX870EBK, the Panasonic HCVX980EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990 (18.91MP). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

Hugely Smaller Digital Zoom

Panasonic HCVX1EBK is only 70 (digital), but the Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a 60x (digital) camcorder (10x smaller), the Panasonic HCVX980EBK is a 1,500x (digital) camcorder (1,430x bigger) and the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990 are both 250x (digital) camcorders (180x bigger). More ...

A digital zoom enlarges the pixels in a digital image to make the subject appear closer. Using digital zoom can result in images becoming blurry as the underlying image remains the same.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge a subject without having to move closer. Digital zoom can be used as an alternative to an optical zoom, although it will result in a loss of image quality.

Lower Maximum Aperture Number

Panasonic HCVX1EBK is only 1.8 maximum aperture value, and so do the Panasonic HCVX870EBK and the Panasonic HCVX980EBK. That's 1.8 lower than the Panasonic HCVXF990 (3.6). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

A Lot Bigger Closest Focusing Distance

The Panasonic HCVX1EBK has a closest focusing distance of 0.1, but the Panasonic HCVX980EBK is a 0.03m closest focusing distance camcorder (0.07m smaller). More ...

'Closest Focusing Distance' indicates the closest distance that the camcorder can be from the subject to achieve a perfect focus. Any closer than this and the subject will be blurry.

A smaller focusing distance means that you can get closer to subjects while filming and still keep in full focus.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Panasonic HCVX1EBK does not have a built-in flash (As does the the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK), but the Panasonic HCVX870EBK, the Panasonic HCVX980EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990 do. More ...

'Built-in Flash' denotes whether the camcorder has a flash unit built into it, or whether you have to rely on natural lighting or external flash units.

7 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic HCVX1EBK supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) (as do the Panasonic HCVX980EBK, the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990), however the Panasonic HCVX870EBK supports a still image resolution of 4992 x 2808. More ...

Image resolution is a measurement of how many pixels make up a single image taken with the camcorder.

A higher image resolution means that the photos taken with the camcorder will be more detailed and sharper, and you'll be able to pick out smaller detailed far better. They will also far more suited to being enlarged, and can be blown up to larger sizes without blurring or losing detail.

Does Not Support Bluetooth

The Panasonic HCVX1EBK does not support bluetooth, but the Panasonic HCVX870EBK, the Panasonic HCVX980EBK, the Panasonic HCVXF1EBK and the Panasonic HCVXF990 support this feature. More ...

'Bluetooth' indicates whether the camcorder supports bluetooth, a communication protocol frequently used with accessories such as wireless flash units.

0.75h Shorter Maximum Battery Life

Panasonic HCVX1EBK is only 0.75 battery life, but the Panasonic HCVX870EBK is a 0.92h battery life camcorder (0.17h longer) and the Panasonic HCVX980EBK is a 1.5h battery life camcorder (0.75h longer). More ...

'Maximum Battery Life' indicates how long the camcorder is capable of recording video for, measured in hours.

A longer battery life allows you to record video for longer before recharging the camcorder or changing the battery.
