The filter results can be viewed on the LCD while shooting. Easily create impressive videos that match the look and feel of your shooting location or your mood.

A scene that moves slowly for a long period of time is recorded frame by frame with an interval, and is recorded as a short time motion picture.

Level Shot Automatically Corrects the Horizon for a More Natural Looking Video

In addition to the 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. +, the V720 Series is also equipped with Level Shot Function that automatically detects and corrects tilting in your images.
