The HC-V550 Full HD Camcorder from Panasonic features Full HD 1920 x 1080 recording, along with a 50x optical and 90x intelligent zoom. Intelligent zoom uses a new technology to capture video even when the optical range is exceeded and the subjects are very far away, like at sporting stadiums.
Also featured is the camcorder's Advanced Level Shot Function and 5 Axis Hybrid Optical Image Stabilizer+(O.I.S.+) with a three-level setting (Off, Normal and Strong) that doubles the tilting correction range for even better effectiveness when moving and shooting. The improved correction algorithm provides better tracking even when tilted quickly. Together with the 5-Axis Hybrid O.I.S+ optical image stabilizer, this provides powerful correction for camera movement and tilting.
The camcorder also includes built-in Wi-Fi and is NFC (near-field communication) enabled for even more flexibility when pairing up with optional HDTVs and mobile devices. They also include a Baby Monitor feature that allows you to check in on a sleeping baby in another room (when the camcorder is connected to your home network with a smartphone). You can speak to the baby using your smartphone and even be notified when the baby cries or when a voice is detected in the room. Ustream allows you to live stream video over the Internet as well.
Built-in modes include Miniature Effect, 8mm Movie, Silent Movie, and Time Lapse Recording. They help to inspire and creatively control your shooting. There's also a backside illuminated sensor that helps you shoot in low light situations.
- Advanced Level Shot Function and 5-Axis Hybrid O.I.S.+ with Active Mode & O.I.S. Lock
- This camera features the Advanced Level Shot Function and 5-Axis Hybrid O.I.S.+ (Optical Image Stabilizer) for minimizing the effects of hand movement and tilting. The tilting correction range has been doubled for enhanced corrective performance. The setting can be adjusted to one of three levels (Off, Normal, Strong) based on your shooting conditions. When shooting in situations where tilting tends to occur or for users who are unaccustomed to shooting, the Strong setting applies a wider correction range with stronger correction for recording video that can be comfortably and easily viewed. The correction algorithm has been improved for better trackability and provides better tracking even when tilted quickly. Together with the 5-Axis Hybrid O.I.S+ optical image stabilizer, this provides powerful correction for camera movement and tilting. The camcorder provides a stabilization lock function as well.
- 50x Optical Zoom and 90x Intelligent Zoom
- Intelligent zoom uses super resolution technology for imaging at HD quality even when the optical range is exceeded. This function enables shooting sharp close-ups of faraway subjects. This is effective when you are separated from the subject by a considerable distance such as when shooting outdoor events.
- Built-In Wi-Fi, NFC-compatible
- Built-in 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi for home or office network compatibility is featured in these camcorders, along with NFC (near-field communication) functionality, for hooking up your camcorder to NFC enabled devices. You can also live stream video to paired devices over the Internet using Ustream.
- Baby Monitor Feature
- The camera includes a Baby Monitor feature which enables you to check on a sleeping baby in another room with the camcorder connected to a home network with a smartphone. You can speak to the baby using your smartphone, or have notifications sent to your smartphone when your baby's crying voice or other sound is detected.
- Creative Control Effects
- The built-in Creative Control modes of Miniature Effect, 8mm Movie, Silent Movie, and Time Lapse Recording enable you to add effects to your video for further enhancing your creativity.
