The Twin Camera Doubles Your Fun

Which do you want to capture? Lovable animals at play or the ear-to-ear smiles of your children watching them? Until now, you had to choose only one, but the Twin Camera gives you both. And the sub camera can shoot at any angle you want. See how much fun dual shooting can be.

Twin Camera Function

This model Series includes a rotatable sub camera. Parallel 2-system processing with the Crystal Engine PRO+ lets you shoot from the side or rear at the same time.
You can catch a shot of someone at the side, a self portrait, or both a tele and wide-angle shot from the front. The sub camera records into a sub window, which you can move by dragging & dropping.

Premium Picture Quality

An all-new lens, sensor and engine combine for powerful zooming and high sensitivity.

Level Shot Function

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.

Baby Monitor

Using Wi-Fi, you can check on the baby with a smartphone or tablet in another room. The Push Notification function alerts the smartphone or tablet if a voice sensor detects the baby waking up and making a sound, and you can even speak to the baby over the monitor.

4-Drive Lens System

For the first time* in a consumer video camera, four lens groups are driven to achieve both high picture quality and a compact size. * As of January 6th, 2014

New BSI Sensor

The effective area is increased* to achieve the high image quality of 6.03M effective pixels.
This gives you bright, beautiful shots even in dark places.

* Compared to the HC-V720.

Crystal Engine Pro+

The information processing speed has advanced to about 1.5 times* the conventional speed. New Noise Reduction has reduced noise for crisp, vibrantly colorful Full-HD images.

Intelligent 50x Zoom / Optical 20x Zoom

The wide shooting range expands the breadth of photographic expression, extending from 29.5mm wide angle to Intelligent 50x zooming. This makes it possible to capture everything from panoramic scenery to telephoto images for obtaining dynamic images of subjects at a distance.

5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+

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.

High Quality Sound Recording

Wind Shield Zoom Microphone

A special damping material is provided in the space between the mic and the mic net to suppress wind noise to less than 1/3 that of conventional models*, for clear recording always.

* Compared to the HC-V720 Series.

High-Quality Audio Parts

Four 6mm-diameter, high-S/N mics and aluminum electrolytic capacitors reduce sound distortion and increase clarity.

Remote Shooting / Remote View

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

Videos and photos inside the camera can be viewed on a smartphone or tablet, and uploaded to an SNS site.

Home Monitoring

When you are away from home, you can monitor and record there with high-quality live video, and speak to your family or pets using your smartphone or tablet.

Highlight Playback and Easy Share

You can enjoy Highlight Playback with a smartphone or tablet right after shooting. Favorite scenes can be shared on SNS with simple drag and drop operation.

Highlight Photo Collage Create a highlight photo collage with the best scenes picked out automatically from video.

One-Touch Connection with NFC

Without bothersome initial settings, NFC lets you connect a smartphone or tablet to the camcorder in one touch.

Even without NFC, you can use QR code to make Wi-Fi settings quickly and easily.

Real Time Broadcasting with Full HD Recording

You can live-stream events on USTREAM as they are being recorded in Full-HD resolution.

Remote Pan Tilt Cradle (optional)

Connect to a Remote Pan Tilt Cradle (sold separately), and you can make the camera rotate automatically.The motion sensor and face recognition function allow you to automatically capture video of everyone’s faces at parties and other gatherings.The motion sensor even lets you use the camera to watch over pets when you are not home.You can operate directly from the camcorder, or use remote control with the Panasonic Image App.

Full-HD Slow Motion Video

Records Full-HD (1920 x 1080) at 120 fps.* And the Intelligent Frame Creation of the New Crystal Engine Pro+ interpolates to an equivalent of 240 fps,* for smooth slow motion. Switches to slow motion while you touch the icon on the LCD screen during shooting.

*For NTSC area:60/120/240fps
*For PAL area:50/100/200fps

Night Mode

Infrared rays and IR-LED lighting let you shoot in the dark (0 lux). You can capture nighttime images without waking the baby up.

Creative Control

Filter effects – Miniature Effect, 8mm Movie, Silent Movie and Time Lapse Recording – makes it possible to shoot impressive video recordings that are matched to the shooting situation.
