Premium Picture Quality An all-new lens, sensor and engine combine for powerful zooming and high sensitivity.
New BSI SensorCrystal Engine Pro+ The effective area is increased* to achieve the high image quality of 6.03M effective pixels. This gives you bright, beautiful shots even in dark places. The information processing speed has advanced to about 1.5 times* the conventional speed. New Noise Reduction has reduced noise for crisp, vibrantly colorful Full-HD images.

* Compared to the HC-V720.
4-Drive Lens System For the first time* in a consumer video camera, four lens groups are driven to achieve both high picture quality and a compact size.
* As of January 6th, 2014.
Intelligent 50x Zoom / Optical 20x Zoom The wide shooting range expands the breadth of photographic expression, extending from 29.5mm wide angle to Intelligent 50x zooming. This makes it possible to capture everything from panoramic scenery to telephoto images for obtaining dynamic images of subjects at a distance.
5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ HYBRID O.I.S. + uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring all the way from wide-angle to powerful zoom shots. This lets you capture crisp, clear images, without blurring, in almost every shooting situation.
Level Shot Function The Level Shot function automatically detects and corrects the tilting of captured images. 2014 models use hybrid processing based on an acceleration sensor plus a gyro sensor to improve tilt tracking by 30&percent; for more stable shooting. Images are more level even when shooting in an unstable or awkward position, such as low angle or high angle.
The Twin Camera Doubles Your Fun Which do you want to capture? Lovable animals at play or the ear-to-ear smiles of your children watching them? Until now, you had to choose only one, but the Twin Camera gives you both. And the sub camera can shoot at any angle you want. See how much fun dual shooting can be.
Twin Camera Function This model Series includes a rotatable sub camera. Parallel 2-system processing with the Crystal Engine PRO+ lets you shoot from the side or rear at the same time.
You can catch a shot of someone at the side, a self portrait, or both a tele and wide-angle shot from the front. The sub camera records into a sub window, which you can move by dragging & dropping.
High Quality Sound RecordingWind Shield Zoom MicrophoneHigh-Quality Audio Parts A special damping material is provided in the space between the mic and the mic net to suppress wind noise to less than 1/3 that of conventional models*, for clear recording always. * Compared to the HC-V720 Series. Four 6mm-diameter, high-S/N mics and aluminum electrolytic capacitors reduce sound distortion and increase clarity.
  1. 1. Wind Shield Zoom High-S/N mics
  2. 2. Microphone
  3. 3. Aluminum electrolytic capacitors for audio use
One-Touch Connection with NFC Without bothersome initial settings, NFC lets you connect a smartphone or tablet to the camcorder in one touch.
Even without NFC, you can use QR code to make Wi-Fi settings quickly and easily.
Real Time Broadcasting with Full HD Recording You can live-stream events on USTREAM as they are being recorded in Full-HD resolution.
Remote Shooting / Remote View The "Panasonic Image App" lets you use a smartphone or tablet as a live-view remote controller and operate the camcorder from a distance. Videos and photos inside the camera can be viewed on a smartphone or tablet, and uploaded to an SNS site
