We compared all the other Full HD video cameras to this video camera and we think the HDR-CX405[pl_2697190_price], and the HDR-PJ220[pl_1537009_price] both from Sony which is cheaper is also worth considering.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative camcorders with an image stabilizer currently available including the Canon Legria HF R66[plb_2848576_price], or the Sony HDR-PJ410[plb_2697188_price] which has better reviews; or the Sony HDR-CX405[plb_2697190_price] which is cheaper.

10 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

One Panasonic AG-HCK10 reviewer who purchased the Panasonic AG-HCK10 thought it was not good value for money. Videomaker.com wrote in their Panasonic AG-HCK10 review “High cost for limited budgets” .

Does Not Have an HDMI

The AG-HCK10 does not have an HDMI, unlike most of the other video cameras of this age and spec.

We think you might also be interested in other video cameras which also have an HDMI including the Canon Legria HF R66[plb_2848576_price], or the Sony HDR-PJ410[plb_2697188_price] or the Sony HDR-CX405[plb_2697190_price].

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Most camcorders that were released more than two years ago do not have an interchangeable lens. The AG-HCK10 is no exception to this as it too does not have an interchangeable lens.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The Panasonic AG-HCK10 has one of the smaller optical zooms (only 12 times zoom factor) amongst video cameras of this age. Across all the small total megapixels camcorders that came out more than two years ago the optical zooms range from 10x to 78x, and the average optical zoom is 31x.

If this small total megapixels video camera optical zoom is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the Sony HDR-CX405[plb_2697190_price] (30x and cheaper) or the Sony HDR-PJ410[plb_2697188_price] (30x and higher rated), or the Canon Legria HF R66[plb_2848576_price] (32x and higher rated).

Video cameras with a bigger digital zoom that might also be worth looking at include the Sony HDR-CX405[plb_2697190_price] (350x and cheaper) or the Sony HDR-PJ410[plb_2697188_price] (350x and higher rated), or the Canon Legria HF R66[plb_2848576_price] (1,140x and higher rated).

Does Not Have a Built-In Display

We compared all the other camcorders which also have a built-in display to this video camera and we think the Sony HDR-CX405[plb_2697190_price] or the Canon Legria HF R66[plb_2848576_price], or the Sony HDR-PJ410[plb_2697188_price] are also worth considering.
