The Panasonic HC-V180K Full HD Camcorder makes it easy to capture your subjects in Full HD 1080p resolution, whether far away or close-up. It features a wide-angle lens with a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 28mm to fit more of your subjects into the shot, and a large 50x optical and 90x intelligent zoom range to bring the action front-and-center. For worry-free operation, the camcorder offers 5-axis image stabilization and a Level Shot function that combine to produce clear, level, and more stable looking handheld footage, even when zoomed in. A two-channel zoom microphone keeps pace with the zoom lens to provide clearer audio capture.
28mm Wide-Angle Lens
Featuring a 28mm (35mm equivalent) focal length at the wide end, the lens allows you to fit more people and more of the background into the frame when working in tight spaces. And because it fits in your subjects even when you shoot from up close, you can get the camcorder's microphone closer to the action for improved audio pick up.
50x Optical Zoom / 90x Intelligent Zoom
Get closer to the action with the camcorder's large 50x optical zoom range. When you need to get even closer, you can push in up to 90x using the intelligent zoom function. Intelligent zoom combines digital zoom, sharpening, and advanced image up-scaling technology to deliver crisper images.
5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+
Stabilized on 5 axes (pan, tilt, and roll axes, plus horizontal and vertical directions), the HYBRID O.I.S+ suppresses blurring and jitters in your videos when not using a tripod or other stabilizer.
Level Shot automatically detects and corrects tilting in images. It can be adjusted to three different levels-OFF, Normal or Strong-depending on shooting conditions.
Backside Illuminated Sensor
A backside illuminated sensor is incorporated in the camcorder, letting you shoot in lower light situations with reduced image noise.
Creative Control Effects
Add effects to your video for further enhancing your creativity. Built-in Creative Control modes include Miniature Effect, 8mm Movie, Silent Movie, and Time Lapse Recording.
