This compact, lightweight and easy-to-use handheld camcorder brings a fun, easy experience to high-resolution video capture with a 5-axis image stabilizer, super-long 50x optical zoom and up to 90x intelligent zooming. At the same time, BSI sensors assure low-light video image quality and a two-channel zoom microphone works in tandem with the zoom to ensure crisp, clear audio at any distance.
Smoothly, clearly and effortlessly the HC-V180K camcorder brings in distant subjects like scenery, athletic events and more with a quick-focus 90x intelligent, 50x optical zoom advantage.
Fit more people and scenery into settings like weddings, reunions, vacations and more with the built-in 28mm wide-angle lens. Especially convenient for capturing group images in small spaces.
An advanced BSI (Back-Illuminated Sensor) adds exceptional brilliance to all your high-definition video in both bright and dim conditions. Ideal for the beach and sunny outdoor events, as well as sunrises, sunsets, cloud cover and dimly-lit evening settings.
Seamlessly synced to the camcorder's active zooming capability, a two-channel zoom microphone automatically adjusts recording volume higher or lower to ensure crisp, clear audio up close or in the distance.
Add more personality and creativity to your high-definition imaging with creative filter effects like 8mm Movie, Silent Movie, Miniature Effect and Time Lapse Recording.
Compose your images, add filter effects and more with a responsive, 2.7in wide touch-screen LCD monitor (230,400 dots).
With Panasonic's Level Shot function, the HC-V180K camcorder automatically detects and compensates for camera tilting. Ideal for hard-to-get images while hiking, climbing and more.
Panasonic's HYBRID O.I.S.+ and 5-axis correction effectively suppresses the blurring frequently caused by unwanted handheld movement while shooting. The result is clear, focused and detailed images.
