Shooting Performances


Imaging power that's out of this world!

Enhanced Optical 70x Zoom

The compact, easy-to-carry camcorder features Enhanced Optical 70x Zoom function that uses the effective area of the sensor to further extend their zooming power at the wide-angle setting. While last year's model offered zooming with standard image quality, the V10 have a dynamic 70x zoom with HD image quality. This allows you to capture beautiful images of sweeping landscapes and pull in distant subjects for truly dynamic close-ups.

Corrects even slight hand-shake and high-power zoom shots.

POWER O.I.S. with Active Mode

The POWER O.I.S. corrects even slight hand-shake. Even high-power zoom shots, which are highly susceptible to hand-shake, now come out sharp and clear.

Enables high-quality 1,280 x 720 recording with a compact body.

HD Recording

The V10 offers high definition recording and 70x dynamic zoom in a compact body. HD video can be recorded in the MP4 format, which offers broad compatibility and high compression that results in small files that are easy to share. The V10 also include the option to record in the iFrame format, which is designed to speed up video editing. With iFrame, the video in your camera is the same format you'll edit, so it's fast to import and edit with compatible video editing applications.

Captures large groups, even when shooting from up close.

31.6mm Wide-Angle*

The 31.6mm wide-angle* setting fits more people and more of the background into the frame than conventional models. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room. It fits your subjects in even when you shoot from up close, and makes it possible to pick up even small sounds with the mic.



* 35mm camera equivalent

Beautiful still images, even when enlarged.

Simultaneous Still Picture Recording at 0.9 Megapixels

The V100M can capture 0.9-megapixel still images* while video shooting. Also, when playing back the videos you shot, you can cut out 0.9-megapixel* still images of any scene you want.


* For images recorded with a 16:9 aspect ratio.


Easy Operation & Usability


Makes optimal settings automatically - for motion images.

iA (Intelligent Auto)

This powerful function senses the shooting conditions and automatically makes the settings and activates functions that will deliver optimal results. iA does the bothersome settings for you and makes it easy to capture beautiful, well-focused images.

* The functions included in iA may not be applied when conditions do not call for them.

Great for sudden photo opportunities, saves energy too.

0.8-Sec Quick Start*

Use Quick Start mode. You simply flip open the LCD and you're ready to shoot in just 0.8 second. When Eco mode is also used, the power turns off whenever the camcorder has not been operated for 5 minutes. This reduces wasted power consumption, and enables a longer battery life. d

* Depending on the recording conditions, start time may be longer than 0.8 seconds.

Excellent format compatibility.

MPEG-4 AVC/H.264

MPEG-4 files are widely used because they combine video and sound in the same file. As a result, the files can be quickly and easily saved onto a PC and then uploaded onto blogs or social networking sites to share with friends and family.

Ideal for Mac and PC users.

iFrame Mode

The V10 lets you record videos in the iFrame. With iFrame, the video in your camera is the same format you'll edit, so it's fast to import and edit with compatible video editing software. iFrame is based on standards, so it works with a number of applications – such as iMovie.

Easy time setting - Both on the destination and at home.

World Time

Handy for travellers, this function makes it easy to set the camcorder time when you cross time zones and again when you return home. Simply select your destination from the displayed map, and the camcorder is automatically set for that time zone. The time for two different places can be set – such as home and destination – and you can switch between the times by simply pressing a button.
