What reviewers liked

This model offers a 2x zoom microphone along with the 1080p picture and 90x zoom, making this a good option for users for whom clear audio is especially important in a camcorder.

Same features as the HC-V270 but without the useful built-in Wi-Fi and only costs about $70 more. • No improvements to low-light performance.
