The "Panasonic Image App" lets you use a smartphone or tablet as a live-view remote controller and operate the camcorder from a distance.

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.
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% for more stable shooting. Images are more level even when shooting in an unstable or awkward position, such as low angle or high angle.
