Panasonic v720, v750 or x920

Hi I'm new here so apologies if I'm asking a daft question but I'm looking to buy a new camcorder mainly to film clips if my children on days out etc over the summer, also indoors. I'm looking for something that will give me the best quality images without going over the top. I have used mainly budget camcorders over the years and have never really liked the images however I used to own a x900 which I thought was great but didn't use it more that x2 until it was stolen ! I was looking at the v750 but the salesman suggested the v720 as being a great little camera but the price difference ?? Surely can be as good as the v750 and how much difference to the x900 ?? Any advice would be most welcome

Welcome to the forum.

All three of those cameras have received positive comments for general family use. I don't think you can make a mistake.

If you have more specific questions about certain features, many here can probably help.

Good luck and have fun!

I'd eliminate the V720 out of your choices. The V750 that replaces it has far better low light abilities. The choice should be between the V750 and X920 unless you can find the V720 for much cheaper than those 2 than that's a different story.
Here's an older similar thread you can read.

The indoor lighting will be a bigger factor than the difference between the cameras. Make sure you have enough and either will take great video.

You'll miss the X920's viewfinder if you get the V750.

On the other hand, you'll miss the V750's 1080/120p (1080/100p in the UK) slow motion if you get the X920.

As a former X900 owner, the X920 is the more natural upgrade, in my view (I may be a little biased towards the 900 series - I am a TM900 owner ).

Best of luck,

Probably won't work for the 750 as the iA "button" is a software icon.
