Record 1080p and picture-in-picture video with the PAL Panasonic HC-W570EG-K HD Camcorder with Twin Video Camera in black. This camcorder is designed to be compatible with European broadcast standards and is not compatible with NTSC. It can capture video at 1080p resolution at up to 50 frames-per-second.

The camera features a built-in 50x optical zoom lens with 90x intelligent zoom. To keep excessive image vibration to a minimum, Panasonic included its Hybrid OIS system into this camcorder. The Hybrid OIS system is capable of compensating for five directions of vibration using both optical and electronic stabilization.

The camcorder is capable of recording two video streams simultaneously with its picture-in-picture mode. The HC-W570EG-K incorporates a small camera on the side of the flip-out screen. This rotatable secondary camera can be used to capture a self-portrait or another angle. You can record HD using the main camera and still record the images from the secondary camera into the picture-in- picture mode. Using the camera's built-in Wi-Fi, you can use your smartphone's camera to provide the second camera angle instead of the HC-W570EG-K's built-in second camera. The Wi-Fi functionality also allows you to control the HC-W570EG-K from your smartphone. 

Twin Camera Operation
The HC-W570EG-K features a secondary camera built into the edge of the LCD monitor. This additional camera provides 270° panning and ±20° tilting for recording two angles simultaneously. The twin camera operation also features a narration mode to record ongoing commentary while shooting. For more versatility, you can connect your smartphone via Wi-Fi and use that instead of the built-in secondary camera. With this functionality you can shoot from alternate distances or angles for a variety of picture-in-picture images.

The built-in camera features the following specs:
Sensor
1 x 1/5" MOS sensor
2,000,000 pixels
Lens
35mm Equivalent Focal Length: 30.6mm
Dual File Twin Cam Recording
The secondary camera stream is burned into the main camera's video. Although you cannot record the secondary camera stream as a separate file, some modes allow you to record both the main camera with the secondary camera's video burned in and the main camera's video alone as two separate files. This allows you postproduction flexibility.
Baby Calendar / Stop-Motion Animation Assist
Set the baby's name and birthday to display thumbnail images of scenes recorded on and around that date, making it easy to find the scenes you want. By moving the subject slightly and shooting still images, you can create a unique animated slideshow. Previously taken photos are displayed with an onion skin effect for easy layering.
Creative Control
Built-in filter effects, including Miniature, 8mm Movie, Silent Movie, and Time Lapse Recording, let you match your video recordings to the shooting situation.
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.
5-Axis Hybrid OIS
Stabilized on 5 axes (pan, tilt, and roll axes, plus horizontal and vertical directions), the Hybrid OIS suppresses blurring in your videos when not using a tripod or other stabilizer.
Wi-Fi Functionality
  • One-touch Connection - NFC lets you instantly connect a smartphone or tablet to the camcorder with just one touch. Even without an NFC phone, QR codes are provided for Wi-Fi setup.
  • 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. View photos and video directly from the camcorder on a smartphone or tablet, and upload to a social networking site.
  • Real-Time Broadcasting - You can live-stream events on USTREAM as they are being recorded in Full-HD resolution (requires a wireless access point).
  • 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 (requires a wireless access point).
  • Home Monitoring - When you are away from home, your camcorder can record high-quality live video, allowing you to monitor and speak to your family or pets at home from your smartphone or tablet.
  • Auto Transfer (Wireless PC Copy) - Images are transferred from your camcorder to your PC via the wireless access point at home.
  • Highlight Playback and Easy Share - You can enjoy Highlight Playback with a smartphone or tablet right after shooting. Favorite scenes can be shared on SNS with simple drag and drop operation.
  • Wireless TV Playback - An access point at home can be used to transfer data wirelessly to the TV or a tablet in the living room, or other rooms in the house (requires a wireless access point).
