The Panasonic AG-HCK10 does not support HDMI, unlike most of the other comparable spec camcorders that were released more than two years ago.

It is worth considering other video cameras which also support HDMI including the Canon Vixia HF M40, or the Sony HVR-Z7 which also has a higher rating.

We compared this camcorder to all the other Full HD video cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Canon Vixia HF M40 is also worth considering.

Lens System

Has an Image Stabilizer

The AG-HCK10 has an image stabilizer, as do most of the other video cameras of this spec and age.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative video cameras with an image stabilizer currently available including because of it's better review score, the Vixia HF M40, or the Vixia HF R40 both from Canon.

Very Small Optical Zoom

With an optical zoom of only 12 times zoom factor, the AG-HCK10 has one of the smaller optical zooms amongst small total megapixels camcorders of this age. Across all the video cameras of this spec and age the optical zooms range from 10x to 78x, and the average optical zoom is 30x.

We compared all the other 12x (optical) video cameras to this video camera and we think the Panasonic HDC-TM900, and the Sony HVR-Z7 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a bigger optical zoom then you might also want to consider the HXR-NX3-VG1 (20x), or the HXR-NX3 (20x) both from Sony.

Very Small Digital Zoom

The smallest digital zoom of comparable spec video cameras that were released more than two years ago is 1.5x and the biggest is 3,500x.

If you are looking for a camcorder with a bigger digital zoom then you might want to consider the Panasonic HC-V550 (£299.99) (150x and higher rated).
