The Panasonic HC-V100 HD Camcorder (Black) is capable of shooting 1920 x 1080/60i high-definition video using the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format. It's also capable of shooting digital still JPEG images in a range of resolutions and megapixels. You can record your footage to the camcorder's SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot, which can support up to 64GB memory cards. The HC-V100 features a convenient 2.7" LCD display monitor with control features for recording and playback. It also features a mini HDMI output for playing back footage in Full HD on your compatible HDTV.

The HC-V100 has a high sensitivity MOS image sensor, interlaced recording ability at 60 frames per second (fps) and progressive recording ability at 960 x 540 resolution (30 fps). The camcorder also has a lengthy list of shot-enhancing and flexibility-furthering features. This list includes Power Optical Image Stabilization (O.I.S.) with Active Mode, 34x Optical Zoom, 42x Intelligent Zoom and 32.5mm wide-angle Panasonic lens. It's also equipped with 2.1 megapixel still image capture while recording and iA (Intelligent Auto). With recording features like this, you'll be able to produce beautiful HD images/videos with incredible color, detail and flowing beauty.

When you're done shooting and ready to edit, the HC-V100 comes with the HD Writer LE 1.1 (Windows only) software for editing, archiving and sharing your footage. It offers help for uploading to social media sites like YouTube and Facebook. Plus, when you're ready, the mini-HDMI port provides an uncompressed, Full HD video and audio link to your HDTV. Using the HDMI interface also ensures that the cameras two-channel AAC or Dolby Digital audio is transferred to your home theater surround sound, giving you high-definition audio to match your HD video. You can even burn your footage to DVD or Blu-ray by purchasing the proper DVD or Blu-ray Disc writer.

Beautiful Zoom Shots with 42x Intelligent Zoom
The HC-V100 features an Intelligent Zoom function that goes all the way up to 42x. 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. Plus, the camcorder features a 34x Optical Zoom
Power O.I.S. with Active Mode
Power O.I.S. with Active Mode lets you get beautiful images with minimal blurring even while you're moving, shooting and holding the camcorder in your hands. Plus, you get images with minimal blurring even when shooting with an unstable posture, such as bending over or kneeling down
High Sensitivity Sensor
The HC-V100's high sensitivity MOS sensor features a higher level of sensitivity than conventional sensors, which makes dark scenes brighter and more beautiful. This camcorder is ideal for shooting indoors, at parties and in other low light situations. The HC-V100 will greatly increases your shooting opportunities
High-Quality 32.5mm Wide-Angle Panasonic Lens
The 32.5mm wide-angle lens allows you to fit more people and more of the background into the frame than conventional models. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room. It fits your subjects in even when you shoot from up close. Plus, it makes it possible to pick up even small sounds with the mic
Simultaneous 2.1 Megapixel Still Picture Recording
The HC-V100 can capture 2.1 megapixel still images while simultaneously shooting video. Plus, when playing back the videos you shot, you can cut out 2.1 megapixel still images of any scene you want
Record for Approximately 155 Minutes on Each Charge
The HC-V100 utilizes low power consumption, which allows it to record continuously for up to 155 minutes. This means you can continue recording without worrying about the remaining battery power. It's especially convenient and reassuring when it's difficult to charge the battery, such as on a trip or when shooting outdoors
iA (Intelligent Auto)
This powerful function senses the shooting conditions and automatically makes the settings and activates functions that will deliver optimal results. iA does the bothersome settings for you and makes it easy to capture beautiful, well-focused images with little effort on your part
Quick Start (0.6 Seconds)
To use the Quick Start mode, simply flip open the LCD and you're ready to shoot in just 0.6 seconds. When Eco-Mode is also used, the power turns off whenever the camcorder has not been operated for five minutes. This reduces wasted power consumption and enables a longer battery life
Ideal for Mac & PC Users
The HC-V100 lets you record videos in the iFrame format. With iFrame, the video in your camera is the same format you'll edit, so it's fast to import and fast to edit with the compatible video editing software. iFrame is based on standards, so it works with a number of applications, including iMovie
Transferring, Editing, Uploading & Sharing
After shooting in iFrame, transfer data quickly to your computer via USB 2.0. Then, go straight to editing with either Panasonic's Windows editing software or iMovie for Mac (sold separately). After editing and archiving, upload your home movies and share on YouTube and Facebook. Plus, you can enjoy your footage on any portable mobile device with network access
World Time (Easy Time Setting)
Handy for travelers, this function makes it easy to set the camcorder time when you cross time zones and again when you return home. Simply select your destination from the displayed map and the camcorder is automatically set for that time zone. The time for two different places can be set - such as home and destination - and you can switch between the times by simply pressing a button
Scene Mode
Automatically selects the most suitable shutter speed and aperture for the shooting location and situation. Choose from scene modes like Sports, Portrait, Low Light (motion image only), Spot Light, Snow, Beach, Sunset, Fireworks, Scenery, Night Scenery and Night Portrait (still image only)
Color Night Rec/Color Night View
Color Night Rec and Color Night View deliver images with color, even in dim lighting
Pre-Rec Function
This smart function records three seconds of images even before you actually begin shooting. The images are held temporarily in the camcorder's internal memory, before recording begins
AGS (Auto Ground-Directional Standby)
The O.I.S. linear motor system can detect when the camera is in an unusual shooting position - such as when you've inadvertently left it on in recording mode. In these cases, the camera automatically stops recording, saving both battery power and media storage space
HDMI Interface
You can quickly connect your HD camcorder to an HDTV using the HDMI interface. It allows you to use a single cable to playback your videos in high-definition
VIERA Link
Connect your HD camcorder to a VIERA or compatible Blu-ray Disc player via an HDMI mini cable and you can control both units in synchronized operation with a single remote control. This kind of simple, easy operation makes it enjoyable to view your recordings
Playback with SD Card
Just slip the SD card from your camcorder into the SD card slot on your VIERA TV or Blu-ray Disc player and you're ready to view your Full-HD moving images
HD Writer LE 1.1 Editing/Archiving Software
HD Writer LE 1.1 software, included with the camcorder, makes it easy to play or edit videos on your PC and have more fun when the shooting's done
Importing Data
When the camcorder is connected to a PC, the software automatically starts up. Importing data takes only a few clicks of the mouse
Easy YouTube & Facebook Uploading
The videos you've recorded are easily uploaded to YouTube or Facebook in their original high quality format. Plus, HD Writer LE 1.1 lets you share your videos worldwide
Editing
It's easy to add titles, rearrange scenes, provide transition effects and edit images in single frame units
Archiving
Make a copy either in the original high-definition AVCHD format or in the standard-definition DVD-Video (MPEG-2) format

    Bought the HC-V100 for personal and business use. Without having time to reading the "how to" use the camcorder I was on a flight deck watching my son re-enlist in the Navy (the early morning after receiving the camcorder). The auto features made it nice, easy and simple to use. Video quality was great, auto lighting settings worked better than I thought they would, sound quality was good, and the zoom worked great. The zoom feature took some a little time to get use to it, remember to zoom slowly to let the auto focus adjust (if you zoom to fast, you will get some blurred interm footage.

    The size is good, fits easily in my hand and small enough to fit into my camera bag loaded with lens, camera and accessories.

    Learn where the buttons are so you don't have to stop filming to make adjustments or to pause recording. The start/stop button is in a convenient location, just have to position your hand at the right angle to push it with your thumb while you are filming.

    All around great product for the price, value; paid less than I thought I would for something of this quality.

    Has no external Mic input, but for what I do, I don't need it.

    I use a couple of 8g memory cards and one 32g. Helps me separate different jobs or events until I get a chance to download to my pc.

        Comments about Panasonic HC-V100 HD Camcorder (Black):

        The camera is small and handy. It is light weight which causes shaky pictures. It is easy to play back through a TV set. BUT, the software is a monster on my older computer. I had trouble editing my test scenes. I never could edit and title a show. I had too much aggravation, so I am going to donate it to a charity.

          Very cheap but doesn't perform too well in low light situations. I use it to make tutorials and know-how video via capture card. Menu navigation is finicky. Image quality is pretty good...I personally don't like the mini-HDMI port.

          Comments about Panasonic HC-V100 HD Camcorder (Black):

          I own a canon dslr. I bought this for its size and convenience. It can fit in a purse or jacket pocket. I just had a baby and I need something I can just set up immediately without the hassle of lens selection. Quality is very nice. I have already taken some great videos. $[$] for this camcorder is a steal!

          I use this camera to take with me on walks, and just keep around when I want to grab it...I have a larger and more expensive camera but it is not as convenient. When I got this one I was amazed at the quality of the video, which rivals my other camera! I also use it to make music videos and it works fine for that too. Well-made and does the job with all the basic things you need for good video.

                Very easy to use and takes great HD video.Only negatives I've found are the fact that it doesn't have a light and the mic picks up alot of wind noise when outdoors. Definitely worth the money. You will not be disappointed.

                  We use this camera to document our lives with a newborn, and it's been great! It's good "bang for your buck" especially on a newborn baby budget. The quality is excellent, it's really user friendly right out of the box without having to read through a book to understand how to work it correctly. Would recommend this to the everyday casual user.

                  Bought this camera to film a wedding, then make a DVD for the couple and their parents. Worked great, it is small enough to hold through the entire after party, battery life was more than could be held on an 8Gb card. The video came out awesome. The only caveat is, you have to use the provided software to convert the videos into a format use able by other programs. The software was easy to use though!

                    I purchased this camera to record the developement of some puppys that the small dog I adopted (unfortunately when I adopted her I was unaware she was pregnant and was not told) had. This was a great purchase. The pictures are very clear, bright. I have not yet used all the features but so far I love this camcorder. The only thing that is not great on it is the microphone... watching the reply of the video is like watching a silent movie... The microphone does not pick up the sound very well. You can barely hear what has been recorded. But other than that... I'm happy with my purchase.

                      I did a lot of research before buying because I was clueless about what to look for in a camcorder and this model was one of the highest rated in its price-range. I was looking for something to tape my sons' sporting events so I wanted good zoom, a steady picture and something that was very light--this camera did not disappoint! I was also very relieved at how easy it was to start using. The only down-side I've found is the quality of the internal microphone--it just doesn't pick up sound very well and there's no option to attach an external mic. Fortunately, it's not necessary for my use.

                          Bought the HC-V100 for personal and business use. Without having time to reading the "how to" use the camcorder I was on a flight deck watching my son re-enlist in the Navy (the early morning after receiving the camcorder). The auto features made it nice, easy and simple to use. Video quality was great, auto lighting settings worked better than I thought they would, sound quality was good, and the zoom worked great. The zoom feature took some a little time to get use to it, remember to zoom slowly to let the auto focus adjust (if you zoom to fast, you will get some blurred interm footage.

                          The size is good, fits easily in my hand and small enough to fit into my camera bag loaded with lens, camera and accessories.

                          Learn where the buttons are so you don't have to stop filming to make adjustments or to pause recording. The start/stop button is in a convenient location, just have to position your hand at the right angle to push it with your thumb while you are filming.

                          All around great product for the price, value; paid less than I thought I would for something of this quality.

                          Has no external Mic input, but for what I do, I don't need it.

                          I use a couple of 8g memory cards and one 32g. Helps me separate different jobs or events until I get a chance to download to my pc.

                          Might think about giving it a 5 star review if there wasn't a humming noise coming from within the camcorder. Also, there is no fix what-so-ever. Waste of time and money. Do NOT recommend buying unless you do care about sound.

                            I'm very impressed with this HD camcorder. It takes super clear videos especially in outdoors. I'm giving 4 stars because its indoor video is not as clear but for the price I paid, it still exceeds my expectiation.
