The Panasonic HC-V500 enables ultra-telephoto 50x zoom shooting with a compact body. This new Intelligent Zoom employs super-high resolution technology and the Image Processing LSI "Crystal Engine PRO" to exceed the magnification range of the ordinary optical zoom. The V500 can capture beautiful pictures beyond the ordinary 38x optical zoom and brings faraway subjects right up close to capture dynamic images that fill the entire frame
Intelligent 50x Zoom Beautiful zoom shots of distant subjects
The V500 features an Intelligent Zoom function that goes all the way up to 50x. When using Intelligent Zoom, Intelligent Resolution technology lets you shoot at high zoom rates while preserving the image resolution. You get sharp images of highly detailed objects - without the blurry edges.
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, clear images, without blurring, in almost every shooting situation.
O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) Lock even more powerful hand-shake compensation
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.
AVCHD Progressive Compliant 1080/50p Recording
1080/50p recording (Full-HD, 1,920 x 1,080, 50 progressive recording) conveys about twice the information of 1080i (interlace) recording. Fast-moving subjects, such as in sports scenes, are smoothly recorded. The progressive recording of the V700 fully complies with the AVCHD Progressive standard.
