Does this camera has headphone out for monitoring? Line out over AV out will not do the job....Canon camcorders have that option.
I do not undestrand why the responses from William D. and Jon B. are marked Inaccurate . There is an 85 mv, 32 ohm stereo minijack entrance for headphones monitoring, and it is located exactly as they say, on the right side, closest from the front end (lens), just ahead of the hand strap. It has a cover and the cover is marked with the headphones sign !!

What about the specs of the slow motion mode? Or has this feature been removed?
The Camera's slow motion mode is a faux 60fps conformed to 24p in camera. It uses MP4 28mbps to do this. You would get better results to shoot in MP4 50mbps 60fps and then use editing software to conform the footage to 24p. The Slow motion mode is designed for consumers who don't know any better.

Does this have a remote control, and if so does it have a zoom control? I'm looking to put this on a tripod up high for filming sports.
The Panasonic HC-VX981K 4K Ultra HD Camcorder will not have a physical remote control. You will need to use the Panasonic Image App for remote control access to the VX981K.

What's the difference between this model and last year's HC-VX870K model? They seem identical when using the Compare tool.
I think in-camera editing.
