  • Looking for next Camcorder, Pan. HC-VX981, Canon Vixia HF G50, or Sony AX53

    I love the “camcorder” form factor for the kinds of videos that I shoot. I have a 1080p Panasonic camcorder that I have used for 9 years and I would love to upgrade to 4K.

    I have looked at and compared three in my price range. (Panasonic HC-VX981 vs. Canon Vixia HF G50 vs. Sony AX53 4K Camcorder)

    It seems like they are all basically alike besides the brand/user interface.

    Is there any of these three that stand out above the rest?

    Which one of these would be the best choice?

    Thank you!

    The only thing I miss about my JVC GY-HM250 camcorder is that

    “backlight” correction button.

    Oh, and ND filters … I miss those too.

    oh, and the remote … I hav an old Panasonic variZoom ….
