Panasonic has introduced two new 4K camcorders – the Panasonic HC-X2 and HC-X20 – aimed at broadcasters and creators. Both cameras have an integrated lens with 20x optical zoom (which ranges from a 24.5mm wide-angle to 490mm telephoto), 5-axis stabilization, and a 1.0-type sensor boasting a resolution of approximately 15.03 effective megapixels.

The Panasonic HC-X2 and HC-X20 are designed to be used in a wide variety of broadcasting roles. While the HC-X2 is the higher-end model of the two, billed as a camera for medium-scale news streaming, the HC-X20 is built for small-scale independent interviews and events.
