80GB Hard Disk Drive
Record hours of video and still images to the 80GB HDD and to optional SD/SDHC/ SDXC memory cards
1/8" CCD Image Sensor
The 1/8" CCD image sensor captures 704 x 480 standard definition footage and 640 x 480 still images
2.7" LCD Display
The 2.7" LCD gives you an accurate platform on which to compose and play back your video and still footage
Advanced Optical Image Stabilization
Advanced O.I.S. shifts a corrective lens as you shoot to help eliminate the effects of hand-shake so you get clear, sharp shots even at high zoom levels
33mm Wide Angle
The 33mm wide angle setting on the Standard Series fits more people and more of the background into the frame than a conventional model. 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, and makes it possible to pick up even small sounds with the mic
Enhanced Optical 78x Zoom
Enhanced Optical 78x Zoom has been added to the compact body of the easy-to-carry camcorder. By taking maximum advantage of the effective CCD area, the camera makes it easy to capture a wide range of dynamic images, from sweeping landscapes with the 33mm wide angle scope to close-ups of distant subjects with the 78x zoom, without having to worry about image degradation
iA (Intelligent Auto)
This powerful function senses the shooting conditions and automatically makes the settings and activates functions that will deliver optimal results. With both motion and still images, iA does the bothersome settings for you and makes it easy to capture beautiful, well-focused images
AF/AE Tracking
AF/AE Tracking optimizes the focus and exposure for a selected subject to ensure beautiful results. After you "lock on" to a subject at the center of the screen by pressing the AF/AE button, the camera follows it around, keeping it in sharp focus and properly exposed
Quick Power-On
Panasonic's Quick Power-On feature helps capture candid shots, while also saving energy by allowing the user to keep the LCD closed and the power off when not shooting
Long Recording Mode
Long Recording Mode, which allows for double the record time as the normal record mode, is made possible by the camcorder's support of the H.264/AVC format with its higher compression ratio
YouTube Uploading
YouTube Uploading makes it fast and easy to upload clips by simply installing the VideoCam Suite software, which is included
