Designed for TV and HDTV systems in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and South America - the Panasonic HC-V700E HD Camcorder (PAL) is capable of shooting 1920 x 1080/50p high-definition video using the AVCHD format. It's also capable of shooting digital still JPEG images in a range of resolutions and megapixels. Plus, with the addition of the optional 3D Conversion Lens (sold separately), you can even record in 3D format. You can store your footage using the camcorder's available SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot, which can support up to 64GB memory cards. The HC-V700E features a convenient 3" (7.6 cm) LCD touch screen display with intuitive touch control features for recording and playback. It also features a mini HDMI output for playing back footage in Full HD on your compatible HDTV.
The HC-V700E has a high sensitivity MOS image sensor, progressive recording ability and a lengthy list of shot-enhancing features. This list includes Hybrid Optical Image Stabilization, the Crystal Engine PRO with Intelligent Resolution technology, a 46x Intelligent Zoom and 28 mm wide-angle Panasonic lens. It's also equipped with O.I.S. Lock, still picture recording at up to 6.1 megapixels, a zoom mic with Wind Noise Canceller, a microphone input, Tele-Macro focusing and iA (Intelligent Auto). With recording features like this, you'll be able to produce beautiful HD images/videos with incredible color, detail and the flowing beauty only progressive recordings can deliver.
Progressive recordings, as opposed to interlaced, reproduce the entirety of an image both across and up/down. This yields vibrant, true-to-life colors and authentic reproduction of each frame. Plus, when you watch your videos on an HDTV, you'll see each shot as it was intended to be seen - in Full HD 1920 x 1080p at 50 frames per second. You may even forget you're watching a home movie. Other highlights include 2D to 3D conversion, Face Detection, Scene Modes, Advanced Highlight Playback, an LED video light, auto lens cover, composition guide lines and a variety of indexing functions.
When you're done shooting and ready to edit, the HC-V700E comes with the HD Writer AE 4.0 (Windows only) software for editing, archiving and sharing your footage. It offers help for uploading to social media sites like YouTube and Facebook. Plus, the mini-HDMI port provides an uncompressed, Full HD video and audio link to your HDTV. Using the HDMI interface also ensures that the camera's two-channel AAC or Dolby Digital audio is transferred to your home theater surround sound, giving you high-definition audio to match your HD video. You can even burn your footage to DVD or Blu-ray by purchasing the proper DVD or Blu-ray Disc writer.
