Panasonic X920 vs. Sony PJ 790 vs Canon HF G30
Jul 13, 2013

I'm fairly new to video, and I'm trying to decide between these three camcorders. I've done quite a bit of homework, and it seems like the Sony might have the best OIS, but the Panasonic seems to have really good auto white balance and IQ. The Canon will record 1080p/60 in MP4, and I don't believe the others will. The Canon has the furthest reach. The Sony has the projector which I doubt I'll use. I do think I'll use WiFi with my Android or iPhone, but they all have that feature.  I'm not too concerned about the cost difference between the three, although obviously the Panasonic wins in that department.  I suppose I might want to set up a wireless mic at some point, but I'm not sure about that yet.

I'm looking for any further thoughts about pros/cons before I take the plunge. I have not seen a great review comparing the three.

How big of a deal is the 1080p/60 with MP4?

Thanks in advance,

Rob
