The HC-V800 Full HD Camcorder from Panasonic pairs an f/1.8–f/4 24x Leica Dicomar zoom with a back-illuminated 1/2.5" MOS sensor, providing impressive optical imagery even at lower light levels. The HC-V800 captures Full HD video at rates up to 1080p60, and up to 26MP still photos. A wireless Twin-Camera feature enables you to record two camera angles at once, using your smartphone as your second camera. The HC-V800's 24x optical zoom lens features a 25 to 600mm 35mm-equivalent focal length, and a 48x Intelligent Zoom, offering a substantial amount of telephoto scope. For steadier handheld shooting, the HC-800 features three optical stabilizer technologies, including Panasonic's Hybrid OIS+, Ball OIS, and Adaptive OIS.
An Active Contrast feature smooths out gradations in high-contrast scenes, and an HDR Movie mode provides a wider dynamic range for more lifelike reproductions. Additional HC-V800 features include integrated Wi-Fi, a 3" touchscreen LCD display, SD/SDHC/SDXC recording, and multiple creative effects modes. The Panasonic HC-V800 features an integrated 5.1-channel, wind-shielded zooming microphone for optimal audio capture.
