I guy my Panasonic camera just broke and I sent to Panasonic for fixing but they can't do it. So they are able to replace it with a new one but I have to pay a small about, I am able to pick the
hc-v550 or the hc-v270. I really can't find any differences because I'm not a camera guy, so can someone tell me which one is better. so far I haven't found anything on the Internet to help.

Thanks

Both have a 2.51 Megapixel 1/5.8" MOS image sensor and there are many other similarities. Given a choice between the two I believe I would go with the HC-V550.
