Panasonic HC-V777 overview

  • 1Description

Compatible with European broadcast standards, the PAL V777EG-K Full HD Camcorder from Panasonic not only records Full HD at 50p, but it features Wi-Fi functionality that you can access from your smartphone. It incorporates back-illuminated sensor technology that moves the circuitry from in front of the sensor's photosites to the back of the chip providing improved low light sensitivity and reduced noise. The Crystal Engine image processor allows you to use your smartphone to simultaneously record two camera angles with the HC-777. This gives you the main image from the HC-V777's sensor in Full HD and a secondary picture-in-picture image from your phone's camera.

The HC-V777 features a 20x optical zoom lens with a 29.5 to 612mm equivalent focal length and incorporates Panasonic's HYBRID O.I.S.+, which combines optical and digital image stabilization to provide 5-axis correction. Adjustable settings allow you to find a stabilization mode most appropriate for the kind of shooting you are doing. From OFF for tripod work, to Normal for regular handheld work, all the way up to Strong for those times when things really get shaky.

The HC-V777's Wi-Fi functionality does more than just let you capture from your phone's camera. You can preview a live image on your mobile device using the Panasonic Image App and change camera settings. If the camera has internet access, you can even upload web-friendly copies of videos and photos directly to social media websites. Plus, there's a Baby Monitor function which lets you use the camera like an IP surveillance camera, viewing a remote feed across the Internet.

Languages
The camera comes with instructions in German, French, Italian, Dutch, and Turkish
HDR (High Dynamic Range) Movie Recording
Much like HDR still photos, the HDR movie function combines two images recorded with different exposure times and uses the best from both. This helps improve detail in the shadows and highlights so that you are less likely to see blown-out highlights or crushed blacks. Ideal for difficult to expose scenes, such as a subject standing in shadow with bright light behind
Wi-Fi Connectivity
Remote Shooting / Remote View - The "Panasonic Image App" lets you use a smartphone or tablet as a real-time remote to control the camcorder from a distance. Videos and photos inside the camera can be viewed on a smartphone or tablet, and uploaded directly to many popular social media sites

Real-Time Broadcasting - Connect the camera to the Internet and live-stream events on USTREAM as they are being recorded in Full-HD in-camera

Baby Monitor - Check on the baby anytime from anywhere with a smartphone or tablet. Push Notification sends an instant alert when the audio sensor detects the baby waking or crying (Internet connection required)

One-Touch Connection - NFC lets you connect an NFC-enabled smartphone or tablet to the camcorder with just one touch. And for devices without NFC, QR codes are provided to enable automatic Wi-Fi configuration
Wireless Twin Camera - Use Your Smartphone as a Sub Camera
Tether your smartphone to the HC-V777 via Wi-Fi and use the phone's camera to provide a second camera angle. This angle can be superimposed over or placed alongside the main image thanks to a number of Picture-in-Picture settings available in the menu
6.03 MP Sensor with Back-Illumination
The HC-V777's 1/2.3", 6.03 MP effective resolution MOS image sensor features back-illumination and improved image processing for better low-light performance and lower noise compared to non-back illuminated systems
Creative Effects
Give your movies a distinctive look with a collection of in-camera effects filters, including Miniature Effect, 8mm Movie, Silent Movie, and Time Lapse Recording
iA (Intelligent Auto) / iA Plus Mode
iA senses shooting conditions to automatically adjust settings and activate functions for optimal results. This mode also lets you adjust exposure compensation and white balance with a single button on the LCD
Level Shot Function
Level Shot automatically detects and corrects tilting in images. It can be adjusted to three different levels - OFF, Normal, or Strong - depending on shooting conditions. The 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ image stabilization system uses five-axis correction to suppress blurring
20x Optical Zoom with 4-Drive Lens System
By driving each lens group separately, drive ranges are reduced to fit a longer lens in less space
Sound Recording
The microphone features a special damping material to help reduce wind noise for enhanced outdoor shooting. The mic itself is comprised of four 6mm-diameter, high-S/N mic capsules and aluminum electrolytic capacitors are employed to reduce sound distortion and increase clarity
Multi Manual Dial
By pushing or rotating the manual dial, you can adjust functions, like focusing and changing the iris, without entering the menu. Functions that can be assigned to the dial include:
  • Focus
  • White Balance Mode
  • Shutter Speed
  • Iris
  • Sharpness
  • Color Saturation
