The Panasonic HC-V380K Full HD Camcorder combines intuitive controls and innovative features to bring a sense of fun and creativity to the traditional handheld camcorder, while still yielding high-quality results.
Amongst the many features on this camcorder is a Wireless Multi-Camera function that lets you record up to two additional camera angles as picture-in-picture windows from Wi-Fi concerted mobile devices. The creative features are complimented by a 28mm equivalent wide-angle lens that offers a large 50x optical and 90x intelligent zoom range to get you closer to the action, along with 5-axis image stabilisation and a Level Shot function to produce clear, level and more stable looking handheld footage.
The camcorder features built-in Wi-Fi connectivity for pairing with compatible mobile devices. This lets you use the Panasonic Image App to remotely control the camcorder, view photos and video and upload your content directly to a social networking site. You can even broadcast 1080p video in real-time using the USTREAM video service to share moments with family and friends all over the world. There is also a Baby Monitor feature that allows you to check in on a sleeping baby from anywhere, as long as the camcorder is connected to your home network. You can speak to the baby using your smartphone and even be notified when the baby cried or when a voice is detected in the room.
Wireless Multi-Camera enables picture-in-picture recording using Wi-Fi connected mobile devices. You have the ability to connect up to three mobile devices at a time and use two of them to record picture-in-picture images. This makes it easy and fun to capture multiple angles and viewpoints at once.
28mm Wide-Angle Lens
This camcorder features a 28mm (35mm equivalent) focal length at the wide end. This lens allows you to fit more people and more of the background into the frame when working in tight spaces. Thanks to it fitting in your subjects even when you shoot from up close, you can get the camcorder's microphone closer to the action for improved audio pick up.
50x Optical Zoom / 90x Intelligent Zoom
Get closer to the action with the camcorder's large 50x optical zoom range. When you need to get even closer, you can push in up to 90x using the intelligent zoom function. Intelligent zoom combines digital zoom, sharpening and advanced image up-scaling technology to deliver crisper images.
5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S+
Stabilised on 5 axes (pan, tilt and roll axes, plus horizonal and vertical directions), the HYBRID O.I.S+ suppresses blurring and jitters in your videos when not using a tripod or other stabiliser.
Level Shot automatically detects and corrects tilting in images, it can be adjusted to three different levels- off, normal or strong, depending on shooting conditions.
Wi-Fi Control and Streaming
In addition to Wireless Multi-Camera, the camera is also able to take advantage of remote control and image sharing from a smartphone or tablet using Panasonic's mobile app. Once connected to your smartphone, you can even live stream video using USTREAM to share moments and events with your friends and family as they are being recorded.
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 your home network with a smartphone. You can speak to the baby using your smartphones or have notifications sent to your smartphone when your baby's crying voice or other sound is detected.
