The Panasonic HC-V800 camcorder lets you record beautiful, Full HD video with a high-quality sensor that performs exceptionally in lowlight. A bright f/1.8 Leica lens offers a versatile 24x optical zoom to get you nice and close to the action without getting in the way. Built-in 5-Axis image stabilisation ensures that your videos are steady and easy to watch, even if you shoot while moving. Active Contrast and HDR movie mode help you capture the best possible images in all kinds of lighting scenarios.

High Quality Large MOS Sensor

Powering the Panasonic HC-V800 camcorder is a high-quality 1/2.5-inch MOS sensor that delivers beautifully crisp Full HD video and up to 26 megapixel still images. The large sensor gives you the flexibility to record in lower light environments while still getting sharp, detailed results.

Leica DICOMAR Lens with 24x Optical Zoom

Complementing the sensor is a bright f/1.8 Leica Dicomar lens with a 25mm wide angle view for even more coverage. It features a 4-drive system that provides a powerful 24x optical zoom, taking the lens range up to 600mm. Intelligent Zoom expands to 48x, giving you the flexibility to capture large, sweeping scenes or zoom in close to capture subjects and action from a safe distance.

5-Axis Optical Image Stabilisation

Built-in Hybrid O.I.S (Optical Image Stabiliser) helps minimise the effects of camera shake across 5-axis of movement. This results in smooth and easy to watch footage, even when shooting handheld, walking, or when zoomed in close.

HDR Video Recording and Active Contrast

The V800 features easy access High Dynamic Range recording to help you out when shooting in difficult lighting conditions. HDR mode combines two different exposures to help supress blown highlights and blocked shadows for better clarity and detail. Active Contrast works similarly, analysing brightness distribution across your image and improve contrast in low brightness areas.

Full HD Slow Motion Recording

The camera can also record slow motion video with Full HD clarity. Shooting in this mode gives you the ability to get creative with movement so you can capture exciting action and slow it down to view epic details and decisive moments.

Creative Shooting Effects

Building on the slow motion recording, the V 800 camcorder also offers a range of cinema-like effects for even more filming creativity. Use Slow & Quick Video to control the speed of your footage. Select Dolly Zoom and Slow Zoom for controlled, professional looking zoom and movement techniques that look straight off the big screen.

Built-In WiFi Connectivity

Built-in WiFi connectivity opens up a world of time-saving and sharing possibilities by letting you connect your compatible smart devices. This ability can also turn them into an easy to use remote so you can operate the camcorder from a distance.

Wireless Twin Sub-Camera for Picture-in-Picture Recording

An innovative Wireless Twin Camera function turns your compatible WiFi enabled devices into a secondary camera. This means you can simultaneously capture two different angles, saving the footage from your phone to the camera and creating picture-in-picture video file. This unique feature gives you a wealth of story-telling possibilities for those big moments in life.
