I am looking to purchase my first HD camcorder mainly for capturing family events and the kids as they grow. I am an avid photographer but never got into video but feel it can be a good means to complement still photography. It looks like Panasonic has been doing a good job lately with their HD camcorders and the 2013 models are about to ship. Based on my budget and what improvements have been made with the new models would I be better off buying the 2012 900MK which can be purchased for $699 or wait for the release of the V720. The X920 would be out of my price range. I welcome any opinions or thoughts you all might have.
