Panasonic HC-V180K overview

  • 1Description

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

    HC-V180K Full HD Camcorder (Black) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Panasonic!! Shame on You! I have bought Panasonic products for year and I guess had the mistaken idea they stood behind their products - until I bought this camera. It was okay at first then the colours especially in bright light were terribly over-exposed, until the camcorder became useless. I sent it to Panasonic carefully following all the instructions regarding warranty service. Got message back that they couldn't do anything except send it back to me because it was not purchased at a valid camera outlet. There was no mention of that being a requirement in the warranty!! So now I have this useless item which is not nearly as bad as the shattered belief in Panasonic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised with this Compact Camcorder Easy to Charge the battery right in the Camera. High Optical Zoom Lens 28mm wide to 103mm. Very High Digital Zoom --500X Stabilization works great. Touch Screen is a real bonus. Good Value for your money. May have trouble with menu if you've got big hands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cell phones do not compare to dedicated HD camcorder No complaints about this camcorder. The zoom is excellent, the features and functions are far better than trying to make do with a cell phone. I have been very impressed with my first Panasonic product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Camera but no slow playback If you are looking for a basic HD camera, this camera seems to be a good value. I only tested it out for a day and the video quality is good, however I wanted a slow playback feature for immediate analysis of sports play and unfortunately this camera does not offer that. I did return it and got the Canon Vixia R600, which does have slow playback. The Panasonic is very lightweight and has the standard features of a camera for the price range.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would definitely buy this camera again. Bought this Panasonic camera to replace my old Panasonic which fell in the lake. After a lot of research this camera seem to fit my needs. The controls are almost identical to my old camera and easy to learn. Have been taking a lot of videos of the kids camping and the picture is beautiful. Running the HDMI cable to my LG OLED TV, awesome picture. See no problems so far. Camera came on time, as advertised, so no complaints.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent cam Got this video camera for my creative 8 year old. He figured it out better than I did. Not great in low light situations but good enough for our purposes.
