About Panasonic HC-V700M

The Panasonic V700M Full HD Camcorder is capable of shooting 1920 x 1080/60p high-definition video using the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format. It's also capable of shooting digital still JPEG images in a range of resolutions and megapixels. Plus, with the addition of the optional 3D Conversion Lens (sold separately), you can even record in 3D format. You can store your footage directly onto the camcorder's 16GB built-in Flash memory or you can use its available SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot, which can support up to 64GB memory cards. The V700M features a convenient 3.0" LCD touch screen display with intuitive touch control features for recording and playback. It also features a mini HDMI output for playing back footage in Full HD on your compatible HDTV.

The V700M has a high sensitivity MOS image sensor, progressive recording ability and a lengthy list of shot-enhancing and flexibility-furthering features. This list includes Hybrid Optical Image Stabilization, the Crystal Engine PRO with Intelligent Resolution technology, an Intelligent 46x Zoom and 28.0mm wide-angle Panasonic lens. It's also equipped with O.I.S. Lock, still picture recording at up to 6.1 megapixels, 60 frames/second rapid burst still image shooting, a zoom mic with Wind Noise Canceller, a microphone input, Tele-Macro focusing and iA (Intelligent Auto). With recording features like this, you'll be able to produce beautiful HD images/videos with incredible color, detail and the flowing beauty only progressive recordings can deliver.

Progressive recordings, as opposed to interlaced, reproduce the entirety of an image both across and up/down. This yields vibrant, true-to-life colors and authentic reproduction of each frame. Plus, when you watch your videos on an HDTV, you'll see each shot as it was intended to be seen - in Full HD 1920 x 1080p at 60 frames per second. You may even forget you're watching a home movie. Other highlights include 2D to 3D Conversion, Face Detection, Scene Modes, Advanced Highlight Playback, a camera flash, LED video light, auto lens cover, composition guide lines and a variety of indexing functions.

When you're done shooting and ready to edit, the V700M comes with the HD Writer AE 4.0 (Windows only) software for editing, archiving and sharing your footage. It offers help for uploading to social media sites like YouTube and Facebook. Plus, the mini-HDMI port provides an uncompressed, Full HD video and audio link to your HDTV. Using the HDMI interface also ensures that the camera's two-channel AAC or Dolby Digital audio is transferred to your home theater surround sound, giving you high-definition audio to match your HD video. You can even burn your footage to DVD or Blu-ray by purchasing the proper DVD or Blu-ray Disc writer.

Panasonic HC-V700M Features

  • 28.0mm Wide Angle Lens: The 28.0mm wide-angle setting fits more people and more of the background into the frame than conventional models. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room
  • Intelligent 46x Zoom: The V700M feature an Intelligent Zoom function that goes all the way up to 46x. When using Intelligent Zoom, Intelligent Resolution technology lets you shoot at high zoom rates while preserving the image resolution
  • Hybrid O.I.S.+: HYBRID O.I.S.+ uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring all the way from wide-angle shots to powerful zoom shots. It also achieves superb effects when shooting while walking. This lets you capture crisp and clear images without blurring
  • Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.) Lock: The image-stabilizing effect is increased by pressing and holding the O.I.S. Lock indication on the LCD screen, which maximizes the blur detection sensitivity. This is great for when you want to zoom at a fixed angle, like for bird watching
  • Still Picture Recording: Still Picture Recording mode lets you shoot with a maximum resolution of 6.1 megapixels. You can also simultaneously record video and still images at 5.8 megapixels
  • 60 Frames/Sec High-Speed Burst Shooting: This function lets the camcorder snap up to 60 consecutive 2.1 megapixel still images per second for a total of 180 continuous images in about three seconds. You can use it to analyze a golf swing, tennis stroke or other high-speed motion
  • iA Mode for Still Images: The iA function is active even when the camera is in still-image mode. When the Intelligent Scene Selector detects the shooting situation, it automatically switches to one of the five Scene modes for still-image shooting. It also optimizes the settings for the still image
  • Smile Shot (Still Image): The Smile Shot function automatically detects subject smiles and captures the best possible smile while you're shooting movies. It lets you easily catch those fleeting, easy-to-miss stills of a smiling subject
  • Crystal Engine PRO: The Crystal Engine PRO instantly processes the huge amount of data that goes into Full-HD images and further enhances Full-HD quality. It produces smooth, high-resolution zoom shots even when the range exceeds the limit for optical zooming
  • Intelligent Resolution Technology: The Intelligent Resolution Technology incorporated in the Crystal Engine PRO uses edge detection technology to confirm the edges of objects within the image, then emphasizes the edges for optimal clarity
  • High-Sensitivity Sensor: The High-Sensitivity Sensor on the V700M has a higher level of sensitivity than conventional sensors, which makes dark scenes brighter. It's ideal for shooting indoors, at parties and in similar situations, which greatly increases your shooting opportunities
  • 3D Image Recording: Simply mounting the optional 3D Conversion Lens (sold separately) to the V700M enables easy 3D shooting. The 3D Conversion Lens is smaller than previous models and its brightness has also been increased from F3.3 to F2.4 1
  • AVCHD Progressive Compliant 1080/60p Recording: Full-HD 1920 x 1080/60p (progressive) recording conveys about twice the information of 1080i (interlace) recording. Fast-moving subjects, such as in sports scenes, are smoothly recorded
  • Zoom Mic: The Zoom Mic function that links with the camera's zoom action has evolved even further. The noise-reducing performance is improved from previous models to -13dB. It lets you clearly record the sound of your target subject
  • Wind Noise Canceller: The Wind Noise Canceller automatically detects and suppresses only wind noise. It lets you capture natural sounds with lifelike ambiance even when shooting in windy conditions outdoors or by the sea
  • Tele-Macro: You can shoot macro close-ups while maintaining a distance of 50 cm from your subject. Also using the zoom at full magnification makes it much easier to capture extreme close-ups without your body or camera casting a shadow on the subject and while keeping the background in soft focus
  • 3.0" Wide LCD with Intuitive Touch Operation: The easy-to-view, wide 3.0" (7.6 cm) LCD touch screen display allows intuitive fingertip touch-operation. When shooting, you can use Touch Zoom to instantly zoom in and out and Touch Shutter to automatically focus when shooting still images
  • Auto Power LCD: The LCD brightness can be adjusted manually to suit the surroundings. In Auto Mode, the LCD brightness is adjusted automatically in 16 smooth steps depending on the surroundings
  • Wide Viewing Angle LCD: The LCD has a viewing angle of 170deg. vertically and 170deg. horizontally. Images are clear and bright even when viewed from an angle, so everyone can gather around the LCD to enjoy on-the-spot recordings
  • Microphone Jack: There is a stereo-mini jack microphone input on the side of the camcorder. You can use it to plug in the external mic (sold separately) of your choice
  • Accessory Shoe & Adapter: Optional accessories can be attached to the camcorder's accessory shoe to increase shooting versatility. The V700M includes an accessory shoe adapter as well
  • iA (Intelligent AUTO): This powerful function senses the shooting conditions and automatically makes the settings and activates functions that will deliver optimal results. iA does the bothersome settings for you and makes it easy to capture beautiful, well-focused images
  • Scene Mode: Scene mode automatically selects the most suitable shutter speed and aperture for the shooting location and situation. Choose from scene modes like Sports, Portrait, Low Light (motion image only), Spot Light, Snow, Beach, Sunset, Fireworks, Scenery, Night Scenery and Night Portrait
  • Color Night Rec/Color Night View: Color Night Rec and Color Night View deliver images with color, even in dim lighting (1 lx)
  • Approx. 1-Second Quick Power-On: Switch the power on and the HD camcorders are in standby mode in about one second, ready to shoot when you are. When the LCD is closed, the power automatically switches off. This fast start-up and automatic shutdown also help reduce battery consumption
