We were impressed by how well the X920 handled our complex low light studio test - click through for 1080p version. The HC-X920 provides excellent reproduction of complex textures such as fur, although the detail of some fur-like textures did become a little fuzzy and pixellated when placed under a quickly changing light source. Colour reproduction is similarly excellent and there was very little noise, except in the darkest of environments. Certainly, colour reproduction was much improved over the HC-X900 on indoor footage, with furniture and clothing looking less saturated and gaudy.

The X920, like its predecessor, can shoot in Full HD at 50fps progressive (1080p50) with a variable bit-rate of up to 28Mbits. We didn't see any compression problems using this quality setting, and nor would we expect to. Some DSLRs can shoot at higher quality settings, but the resulting footage can be unwieldy to edit and store.

However, the output 1080 60p or 50p AVCHD movies cannot be supported by some non-linear video editors like the common tool FCP 7/X for Mac users, which causes unsmooth editing without rendering. To get Panasonic HC-X920 footage into Final Cut Pro 7, the best method is to transcode the 1080 60p/50p footage to FCP native support format Apple ProRes 422 with an easy-to-use AVCHD MTS Converter.
