Panasonic HC-V520 HD 1080p Camcorder, 10MP, 50x Optical Zoom, Wi-Fi, NFC, 3” LCD Screen
Powerful and connected, the Panasonic HC-V520 HD camcorder not only allows you to capture the moment with exceptional clarity. Blur-suppression technology makes every moment pin-sharp, and the HC-V520 it’s also capable of live streaming via the internet, ideal for vlogging (video blogging) to friends and family. It’s also capable of Near Field Communication (NFC), making one-touch sharing with compatible devices (like smartphones) simple.
- Equipped with Intelligent 80x Zoom / Optical 50x Zoom, the HC-V520 can capture even the images of craters on the moon in Full-HD image quality. It lets users easily shoot distant subjects that are too far away to capture clearly with conventional zoom functions.
- The HC-V520 is also equipped with Level Shot Function, in addition to the 5-Axis HYBRID OIS+ that thoroughly suppresses blurring over the entire shooting range. Level Shot Function automatically detects and corrects the tilting of captured images. It records crisp, clear images with reduced blur and more horizontal even if when shooting in an unstable or awkward position such as low-angle or high-angle shooting.
- The HC-V520 supports NFC to achieve one-touch connection with a smartphone. There is no need for cumbersome settings. Once a smartphone is connected, it can be used to remotely check audio recording, zoom In/Out, shutter ON/OFF and other functions while viewing the live image. Highlight Playback of recorded images is also possible with a smartphone or tablet. Favorite scenes can be shared on SNS with simple drag-and-drop operation.
- The Wi-Fi function enables real-time broadcasting of important events via Ustream. This lets users deliver live images to people with Internet access around the world. There is also a function to send e-mail to notify the start of streaming to preregistered e-mail addresses. Home Monitoring lets users check on pets or family at home from the outside. You can even speak to pets or family while viewing them on the screen, and record images remotely from a smartphone.
