About the Panasonic HC-V10

High definition video, an awesomely long telephoto zoom range of 63x (70x enhanced optical zoom!) and user-friendly shooting controls make this HD camcorder hard to resist. The Panasonic HC-V10 High Definition Camcorder (Black) is a great way to break into HD recording; just charge the battery and pop in an SD/SDHC or SDXC memory card and you're ready to start shooting. The 31.6mm (equivalent in 35mm format) wide-angle lens is ideal for recording indoors or in tight spaces, especially when fitting both the subject and surrounding area into the frame. The wide-angle also produces beautiful images of wide landscapes and allows you to fit large groups of people into the frame.

The HC-V10 offers up a plethora of user-friendly shooting controls. Panasonic's Intelligent Auto takes the guesswork out of shooting just about any setting. iA automatically sets the camera for the situation--you can focus on the moment without fussing with camera controls. Other features like Intelligent Scene Selector, Face Detection and Pre-Rec help you to record great video, without going to film school.

High definition video gives you vivid, life-like, detailed images. It's also a format that will be compatible with computer systems for years to come. And, the high definition video recorded with the HC-V10 will look great on your HDTV, where every minute detail shows. When you're done shooting and ready to edit, share and archive, the included HD Writer HE 1.0 software is compatible with YouTube and Facebook, so anybody can easily post video clips to the web. Image data can also be transferred to a Mac computer for editing in applications such as iMovie.

Panasonic HC-V10 Features

  • 63x Optical Zoom: The HC-V10 features a 63x optical zoom with an Enhanced Optical 70x zoom function. You can zoom from the wide-angle 31.6mm (equivalent in 35mm format) to catch dynamic shots of distant objects with the very long telephoto end of the zoom range
  • Power O.I.S: Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) helps prevent blurring - typically a big concern when shooting with a telephoto lens
  • 31.6mm Wide-Angle: The 31.6mm wide-angle end of the zoom range is especially convenient for recording indoors or in tight spaces, making it possible to shoot at a close distance from the subject while fitting both the subject and surrounding area into the frame
  • iA (Intelligent Auto): This powerful function consists of four functions that automatically select the most suitable shooting mode with the press of a button. Power O.I.S. suppresses handshake without degrading image quality, resulting in clear, blur-free images even with dynamic zooming
  • Pre-Rec Function: This smart function records three seconds of images even before you actually begin shooting. The images are held temporarily in the camcorder's internal memory, before recording begins. This helps ensure that you won't miss the start of a moment you want to record
  • 2D Editing: Along with full editing functions of previous software versions, the new HD Writer software features a Timeline mode which allows for a timeline to be displayed with a storyboard for highly accurate editing while fine-tuning the timing of video images
  • Smart Wizard: When a user connects the HC-V10 camcorder to the USB port of a PC, Smart Wizard mode automatically starts up. Following the on-screen guidance lets users easily copy video clips to a PC or BD/DVD disc without getting lost in the process
  • Copy/Archive/Playback: A user can specify which video files to transfer onto their PC with the Copy/Archive/Playback software function. Additionally, the software remembers which files were previously copied onto a PC, so users don't have to re-copy the same file again later
  • Editing, Archiving and YouTube Uploading: The HD Writer HE 1.0 software is compatible with YouTube and Facebook allowing even the most inexperienced users to easily post video clips to the web. Image data can also be transferred to a Mac computer for editing in applications such as iMovie
