I have been able to test the device in a live situation.
It IS able to do live monitoring via AV-out (composite).
I tested it with recording OFF, which is enough for my purposes.
Hi - looking to buy a Panasonic HC 720 for family and some professional use - e.g. filming a presentation launch.
Would like to ask about the sound quality of this model - I understand it's a 5 in 1 sound system but how good is the quality in say filming a series of speakers on stage from floor a few feet away and not being swamped by audience noise.
Would I need to consider external mike or is the built in system adequate.
Thanks for any advice you might be able to offer.
