Average Optical Zoom

At 12 times zoom factor, the HC-X929 has a fairly average optical zoom compared to most of the other video cameras that have been available for a similar time to this camcorder.

We compared all the other 12x (optical) video cameras to this camcorder and we think because of its better review score, the Sony HDR-PJ580E is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a bigger optical zoom then you might want to consider the HC-W850 (20x and higher rated), or the HC-X1000 (£1,729) (20x and higher rated) both from Panasonic.
