The black Panasonic HC-V180K Full HD Camcorder makes it easy to capture your subjects in Full HD 1080p resolution, whether far away or close-up. It features a wide-angle lens with a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 28mm to fit more of your subjects into the shot, and a large 50x optical and 90x intelligent zoom range to bring the action front-and-center. For worry-free operation, the camcorder offers 5-axis image stabilization and a Level Shot function that combine to produce clear, level, and more stable looking handheld footage, even when zoomed in. A two-channel zoom microphone keeps pace with the zoom lens to provide clearer audio capture.

28mm Wide-Angle Lens

Featuring a 28mm (35mm equivalent) focal length at the wide end, the lens allows you to fit more people and more of the background into the frame when working in tight spaces. And because it fits in your subjects even when you shoot from up close, you can get the camcorder's microphone closer to the action for improved audio pick up.

50x Optical Zoom / 90x Intelligent Zoom

Get closer to the action with the camcorder's large 50x optical zoom range. When you need to get even closer, you can push in up to 90x using the intelligent zoom function. Intelligent zoom combines digital zoom, sharpening, and advanced image up-scaling technology to deliver crisper images.

5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+

Stabilized on 5 axes (pan, tilt, and roll axes, plus horizontal and vertical directions), the HYBRID O.I.S+ suppresses blurring and jitters in your videos when not using a tripod or other stabilizer.

Level Shot

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.

Backside Illuminated Sensor

A backside illuminated sensor is incorporated in the camcorder, letting you shoot in lower light situations with reduced image noise.

Creative Control Effects

Add effects to your video for further enhancing your creativity. Built-in Creative Control modes include Miniature Effect, 8mm Movie, Silent Movie, and Time Lapse Recording.

Panasonic HC-V180K Reviews

It is what you pay for

By Stephen
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-12

Overall not a bad camera for the price. However, there is obvious over processing on the video end that leaves a lot of edges in the video that is distracting to people who are used to higher end cameras. Tends to happen more in lower light environments which unfortunately our usage is. I have noticed it is far less obvious when zoomed in more or when it is in higher lighting. I would buy it again for another usage location than where I'm using it now!

Good HD great stereo sound!

Needed it just HD but sound was very important. After recording a short classical guitar video I was impressed by the sound, loud and clear with good presence. Great for recording lived performances! Many features for such small camcorder.

So... where is the CLEAN hdmi?

Bought one of these because I was told it had a clean HDMI output... well, IT DOES NOT HAVE A CLEAN HDMI OUTPUT. If it exists, I can't find it. The output has data on it and I can find no way, of any kind, to get a clean HDMI out. Not recommended as a webcam. Buy a Zoom 2qn4K handy... cheap and has clean HDMI.

Perfect for soccer sidelines
