Product Description

Panasonic HC-W580 Camcorder Black FHD 2.51MP 50xZoom 3.0LCD WiFi SD/SDHC/SDXC

Twice As Much Fun From a Small Twin Camera: It fits perfectly in the palm of your hand - and is highly powerful for filming fun footage. Twin Camera and Wireless Multi Camera give you more creative options. And the high zoom pulls in distant objects for added dynamics. With HDR Movie, you get crisp detail in both bright and dark areas.


90x Intelligent / 50x Optical Zoom
Easily capture distant objects that are too far away to shoot with conventional zoom functions - thanks to 90x Intelligent Zoom. You can also use the 50x Optical Zoom to zoom in on your subject to add more emotion and dynamics to your homemade footage.

28mm Wide-Angle*
Fit more people and more of the background into the frame - the 28mm Wide-Angle function (35mm camera equivalent) makes it possible. This is especially handy when you want to take a group shot in a small room.
* 35mm camera equivalent.

Twin Camera Function to Add a Unique Touch to Your Films
With a rotatable sub camera that lets you take shots from two angles at once.

The Backup Function records picture in picture without a sub window for backup.

The sub camera is recorded into any one of the various sub windows and the display position can be changed by touch operation.

Film the family and a selfie.

Wireless Multi Camera to Add extra emotion to your footage
Enjoy a new kind of shooting style that lets you add even more emotion to your movies. Using Wi-Fi, you can link to as many as three smartphones and simultaneously record up to two of them as sub-windows. These sub-window images can be interchanged, and their display positions can be switched. This lets you shoot from a variety of angles and viewpoints, to capture a higher level of emotional impact.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) Movie
Enjoy crisp and clear videos thanks to the HDR Movie function.

This feature combines two images taken with different exposures to suppress blown highlights and blocked shadows.

Easily capture natural videos with excellent gradation even in difficult filming situations such as backlighting.

All this function with a dedicated HDR button enabling quick mode changes when necessary.

Level Footage at All Times
So you can film carefree, the Level Shot function automatically detects and corrects the tilting of images. The setting can be adjusted to one of three levels - OFF, Normal or Strong - for the shooting condition.

Clear, Blurless Results
HYBRID O.I.S.+ uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring caused by unwanted shake - whether you are shooting with a wide angle or at high zoom. This lets you capture crisp, clear images in virtually every shooting situation.
