Hard Disk Drive/SD Recordable Camcorder with 32x Optical Zoom

Features Hard Disk Drive/SD Palmcorder Camcorder with Optical Image Stabilizer and 32x Optical Zoom, Records to 30GB Hard Disk or SD Memory Card


Extended Recording for Extended Shooting Fun
WThe internal 30GB hard drive holds as much video data as about 22 DVDs. That means you can record continuously for up to 27 hours without changing a disc, tape or other recording medium. The SD Card/Hard Disk camcorder is perfect for taking on a trip or for shooting those extra long events.

Suppress Camera Shake 8212; Even on a Big-Screen TV
Imagine taking video shots on a moving boat and then viewing them on a large-screen TV. They're likely to appear blurry from the boat's movement and from your unsteady hands. Panasonic solves this problem with O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), which minimizes hand-shake in situations where it is most often a problem, such as with zoom shots — or on a moving boat. The system is optical, so there is no quality loss, and images look clear and beautiful on a big-screen TV.

Always Ready for a Close-Up
You'll rarely need to move in to get a close shot with this camcorder. You can fill the screen with even a distant subject, thanks to a powerful 32x zoom. And because it's optical, there's no loss of clarity or quality. Whether you zoom in or pull back, images always retain their natural beauty.

An LCD That's Easy on the Eyes
In bright sun or a darkened room, your LCD will always be just right, with five brightness levels for optimal viewing. Simply adjust the LCD brightness to match lighting conditions, and enjoy comfortable shooting anywhere you go.

DVDs at the Push of a Button
No more complicated steps to put your memories onto a DVD. Just connect the camera to your PC's USB port and press a single button to copy your video to a 12-cm DVD. And it's just as easy with a DVD writer. Just connect, and with the push of a button, you're done.

Keep Video Safe from Falls
Don't let a dropped camera rob you of your best shots. An Anti-Shock Shield helps protect your valuable footage from damage by lifting the head away from the hard drive when it senses a fall of about 20 cm. And rest assured that those last few seconds of video are safe. If the camera falls, newly recorded data is temporarily stored in an internal buffer, and then transfer to the drive once it resumes operation. To reduce impact, a protective gel also cushions the drive, guarding your video from accidental loss.
