Panasonic HC-W570


At first glance, the Panasonic HC-W570 is a relatively low-end camcorder, but appearances can be deceiving. Although the core specifications are entry-level, the camera allies them with a number of features from higher-end models.

Second "Twin Camera" lens ; Optical image stabilisation ; WiFi connectivity

Small CMOS sensor ; No slow-motion shooting

With optical image stabilisation, Wi-Fi, and the selfie-orientated secondary lens, the Panasonic HC-W570 offers an excellent range of features for the money.

Panasonic Camcorder HC-W570


With digital cameras being able to capture video it's been a while since I have cast my eye over a Camcorder. This was quite a revelation, it should not have been as digital cameras have evolved so have Camcorders and this one can even capture PIP.

The Panasonic HC-W570 camcorder measures 12.5x5.5x6cm and weights 306grams. It is called a twin camera and that is what it is. The normal lens at the front and a further lens at the far-left-edge of the TFT screen. It seems strange and it can be used...

Panasonic-Camcorder HC-W570: Doppel-Kamera mit Superzoom im Test


Videotaugliche Smartphones und Digicams machen Camcordern das Leben schwer. Lohnt sich die Anschaffung eines Camcorders heute noch? Panasonics kompakter HC-W570 will den Beweis dafür antreten und wartet mit einem Feature auf, das keine Digicam bietet.

starker Zoom ; Twin-Cam-Technik ; kompakt und leicht

Touchdisplay nicht optimal

Der HC-W5790 ist ein sehr kompakter Camcorder mit guter Bildqualität und starkem Zoom. Die Bedienung ist übersichtlich, allerdings ist das Touchdisplay nicht besonders bedienfreundlich. Ein Highlight ist das Twin-Cam-Konzept. Mit etwas Geschick lassen...
