The Panasonic HC-W585M is a Full HD Camcorder with HDR Movie mode. Its innovative built-in Twin Camera allows you to capture two viewpoints simultaneously, opening up a world of new storytelling possibilities.

Full HD Recording and High Resolutions Stills

In the heart of the camera lies a 1/5.8-inch BSI MOS Sensor capable of crystal clear Full HD video recording with true-to-life colour reproduction. The camera is also capable of shooting high-resolution photos up to 10 megapixels in size. The light sensitive sensor in the W585M is capable of producing sharp images with amazing colours even in poor light conditions.

Powerful 90x Intelligent Zoom

An impressive 50x optical zoom can be extended to an astounding 90x using the intelligent zoom function to get amazing magnification of distant objects. The Intelligent zoom combines digital zoom, sharpening, and advanced image up-scaling technology to deliver a high image quality. The powerful zoom not only enables you to capture extreme macro-style close-ups, but also affords a spectacular close-up view of distant objects and events.

28mm f/1.8 Wide Angle Lens

The 28mm wide angle lens covers an extensive scape allowing you to capture a broader viewpoint without having to move the camera back. The wide-angle lens is the ideal tool for capturing a grandiose landscape.

Optical Image Stabilisation with Level Shot Mode

A Hybrid O.I.S + Optical Image Stabiliser improves shooting on high telephoto zoom even while in motion by minimising camera shake across 5 axes of movement (pan, tilt, roll, horizontal and vertical). Additionally, the OIS system incorporates a Level Shot feature which automatically can detect and correct axis tilting. This ensures your horizons are always perfectly straight for a more accurate reproduction of the scene.

Internal Memory

An upgraded 32GB internal memory comes to your rescue when you run out of space while recording a memorable event. Instantly switch to the reserve internal memory storage and never miss the moment. In addition to the internal storage space, the camera is compatible with standard SD/SDHC/SDXC Type replaceable memory cards.

Built-in Wi-Fi

The built-in Wi-Fi feature in the HC-W585M opens up a plethora of creative features. Using the Panasonic Image App, the camera can be remotely operated through a Wi-Fi connected smartphone to compose, shoot, view, and instantly share and upload photos and videos.

Twin Camera

A secondary swivel camera is built into the edge of the LCD screen allowing you to simultaneously record two different angles. The Twin Camera offers countless possibilities. Capture simultaneous wide-angle and a close-up shot of your favourite player in action or film a family event with yourself in-action behind the camera providing a running commentary. The secondary camera image appears as a small sub-window on the main screen and can be re-positioned with a simple touch of the screen.

Wireless Multi Camera

Multiplying the fun quotient, the W585M goes a step beyond Twin Camera. Using Wi-Fi connected smartphones as sub-cameras, you can record multiple angles from different shooting positions. The camera can wirelessly connects with up to three smartphones and records from any two as secondary cameras. The output from the two smartphones appears as picture-in-picture sub-windows on the LCD monitor. The position of the two sub-windows can be toggled for better context or logical organisation.

Real Time Video Streaming

Discover the fun of instant sharing and have your acquaintances anywhere in the world, receive and view your recording. The Wi-Fi connected camera can simultaneously record and broadcast images and video over the internet*.

HDR Movie Mode

The camera features a dedicated High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode to get natural videos under difficult shooting situations such as extremely bright or back-lit subjects. In this mode, two sets of images are taken with different exposure levels and combined to suppress blown highlights and blocked shadows resulting in brighter, more vivid movie clips.

Baby and Home Monitoring

Connected to a smartphone through the home network*, the camcorder can be used to record and monitor events at home in your absence. Keep an eye on the security of your home, and even your baby or pets. The feature can be configured to send you a notification on your smartphone upon detecting triggers such as a movement or a sound, like the crying of your baby or barking of your dog.

Creativity through Built-in Special Effects

Enhance creativity to your video by introducing special effects with the built-in filters such as Miniature Effect, 8mm Movie, Silent Movie and Time Lapse Recording.

3” LCD Touch Screen

A 3-inch 460k-dot resolution LCD screen displays bright images and videos. The interactive touchscreen provides instant access to most camera controls through visual interface, ensuring you can devote full concentration on framing the shot.

With in-built Twin and Wireless Multi-Camera for picture-in-picture recording, the feature rich high zoom Panasonic HC W585M is ideal for users aspiring for a compact Full HD camcorder with creative controls to showcase their skills.
