Panasonic has released the HC-WXF991 and HC-VX981 consumer video cameras.
Both cameras have:
- 4k Video at 30/24P
- 1/2.3″ BSI Sensor
- 20X Zoom Lens
- $999 price (on the 991 model)
- Expected to be available in March
Again, we are concerned about the sensor size, which hasn’t done that well with 4K historically but maybe this will be the first generation of small sensor cameras that work well enough at this resolution.
The VX981 model lacks an electronic viewfinder and picture-in-picture twin camera recording as compared to the WXF991.
