Product Description

From the Manufacturer


Panasonic HC-V700MK HD Camcorder Ultra High Zoom High Image Quality POWER O.I.S. 3D Conversion Imaging, Black


A Crystal Engine PRO for Crisp, Clear, On-the-go Motion Shots

The Panasonic V700MK HD video camera's Crystal Engine PRO instantly processes large HD images, enriching its photo quality. Smooth, high-resolution zoom shots are produced even when taken beyond its optical zooming range. The beauty of this Crystal Engine PRO is how clearly it delineates even the tiniest details of your subjects, like flowers and the big blue sky. Intelligent Resolution Technology, with its edge detection technology, ensures sharp and crisp pictures, resulting in bright and beautifully colored motion images. The key is how the HD Camcorder corrects and redefines blurry edges for optimal clarity. This advanced technology enhances natural smoothness letting you see the patterns and outlines in flowers and the big sky.

Imagine the photographic possibilities with an Intelligent 46x Zoom

You can thank the Intelligent Zoom function for its smart, ultra-telephoto zooming abilities, bringing your subjects into your frame by 46x. Because of the HD video camera's Intelligent Resolution technology, you can record at high zoom rates while preserving fine image quality and resolution. You get sharp images of incredibly detailed objects - without the nuisance of blurry edges. And if you find yourself shooting indoors or in a darkly set location, don't worry. The V700MK camcorder has a high sensitivity sensor that is more susceptible than conventional sensors, making dark scenes brighter and clearer to the eye. Go on, zoom in on that far away spot that calls to you.

Panasonic's HC-V700MK 28mm Wide-Angle Camcorder Lens Lets You Get Close
28mm Wide

The Panasonic HC-V700MK 28mm wide-angle camcorder lens setting fits more people and more of the background into your frame than other conventional models. This is especially clever when you want to take a group photo in a small room. The HD camcorder fits your subjects into your framework even when you shoot from up-close. And don't worry about missing someone's comments or a baby's chuckle, as the built-in mic will record it. Want to create your own 3D movie?

Panasonic's High-Speed Burst Shooting Lets You Analyze 90 Images Per Second

Say you're shooting hoops or playing golf with a buddy. Or your daughter is having a high tea afternoon party. With high-speed burst shooting, you can snap up to 60 consecutive 2.1-megapixel still images per second for a total of 180 continuous images, taking you all but 3 seconds. Go back and analyze that golf swing, basketball shot, scone share, or even a great tennis swing. Motion is made easier to capture resulting in special, rich 6.1-megapixel still images while video shooting, even in zoom mode. This feature even allows you to record both still images and video simultaneously in 6.1 megapixels on your V700MK HD Video Camera.

Shaky Hands? Meet HYBRID O.I.S. + and Be Still
HYBRID O.I.S.

HYBRID O.I.S. + uses a five-axis correction method that meticulously suppresses blurring over the entire zoom range, from your wide-angle shots to those powerful zoom shots you're so proud of. The camcorder also lets you record while walking, without blurs and shakes.The camcorder's image-stabilizing effect is increased as you press and hold the O.I.S. Lock on the LCD screen, which maximizes and detects blur sensitivity. The results? Crisp, clear images in almost every shooting situation, especially for those times you want to zoom in at a fixed angle, like when you're bird watching and want to capture them in-flight as they gather twigs for their new nest.

iA (Intelligent Auto) Thinks for You and Your Scenes
Intelligent Auto

The camcorder's iA function senses your shooting situations adjusting exposure and coloration for that natural look. Between Sports, Portrait, Spot Light, Snow, Beach, Sunset, Fireworks, Scenery, Night Scenery, Night Portrait, and Macro, which produces a clearer close-up of your focused subject, you won't miss a thing. In Smile Shot function, iA will detect and capture the smiles you want as it links to Face Recognition, Face Detection, and Auto Focus Tracking. This Panasonic HD camcorder is so smart that it knows to cancel wind noise even if you are at sea. You won't miss a beat as the Zoom Mic links to your lens action, so when you zoom, so does the mic.

Quick and Easy, Lift-off with this Touch LCD

Intuitive shooting is at your fingertips with this 3.0-inch LCD that lets your fingers do the zooming, sliding as little or as far as you desire with Touch Zoom. When your subject appears in the frame, Touch Shutter automatically focuses for you as you shoot. On the green side, the camcorder lens cover automatically opens or powers off. And when the video camera determines that ambient lighting is insufficient, the light is turned on, illuminating your star subject. The LED consumes less power, has a long service life, and operates in a safe, low temperature. Start shooting in approximately 1 second in Standby Mode or 0.6 seconds in Quick Start mode.

Make Impeccable Motion Pictures with iFrame, Focus Assist, & More with the V700MK HD Camcorder
iFrame

Let iFrame, ideal for PCs or MACs, quickly edit your work while you are not only in the frame of mind, but as you're in your just-shot-scene. This editing software is part of your HD camcorder and is compatible with iMovie. With Focus Assist, you know your subjects are in focus as they are outlined in blue. You can easily check the focus on the LCD by focusing manually, assuring consistently clear images. And with the camcorder's Composition Guide, keep your images perfectly level as horizontal and vertical lines are displayed making it easy to keep your subjects straight and leveled. Cross time zones and your camcorder will adjust accordingly.

Playback Your Motion Pictures with These Forward-Thinking Modes

You've poured your creative juices into your projects - now, playback with effects such as Natural, Pop, Dynamic, and Classical that can be easily applied to your subject's face for a fun, natural, or dramatic touch. This innovative function lets you select your favorite recordings and automatically arranges scenes with playback music. The same goes for those you arrange yourself as it decides how exciting a scene is, based on zooming, panning, and scene changes. The video camera's advanced playback effects like Slow Motion, Still Image Fading, and Flash offer a fun factor. And the Face Highlight Playback mode selects those faces whose names have been registered in Face Recognition.

Shoot Your Videos in 3D
3D

Simply mounting the optional VW-CLT2 3D Conversion Lens and Set-up Ring enables easy 3D shooting. The 1.5x zoom dual lens system records right-eye and left-eye images simultaneously in full-HD with F2.4 brightness to produce life-like, textured, AVCHD three-dimensional videos which can be viewed on a 3DTV.

Style Name: Camcorder only Verified Purchase
I just received my 'baby' today. I'm VERY impressed! I'm sure some of the expensive prosumer cameras can top it, but it's the best camcorder I've ever owned in the consumer/midrange arena! I've only used it on full auto so far.

The colors in the recorded footage filmed in sunlight are nicely saturated, lifelike and vivid. The image stabilization even while zooming is highly effective in all directions. The intelligent zoom image is indistinguishable from the optical portion of the zoom. (I viewed on a 47" Bravia TV)
The camera is very light, but feels solid, all buttons and controls have a firm feel to them.

I was able to shoot great indoor footage with shades drawn, and no lights on! The color was still accurate if a little muted, and there was a little graininess, but that's to be expected. The low-light image had no excessive noise, no strange orange cast, or washed out cast like my Sony and Sanyo used to produce! With just a little help, such as a 150 watt bulb the indoor picture becomes amazing compared to my older cameras.

Photographs are OK for a camcorder, but if you've been using high MP images or DSLR, then they are NOT impressive as they are only 6MP.

This version of the Camera only has the one slot, so a decent size SD(HC/XC) card is needed so that you don't fill it up too quickly.

If you want a camera that produces superb video without any effort, and can produce great footage in less than ideal lighting, the V700K is a great buy and lives up to its own marketing hype which is rare.

Style Name: Camcorder only Verified Purchase
Background:
I havent bought/used a camcorder in 10+ years. However, I do enjoy digital photography as a hobby of mine. For the past 2.5 years I have been shooting with a Pentax K-X DSLR, with either the Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 lens or the Pentax DA 50mm f1.4 prime. The K-x does HD video also so my main comparisons and thoughts will be based on what I had seen the K-x do in terms of video. Decided to ultimately buy a dedicated camcorder b/c the lack of active auto-focus in the K-x was a deal breaker in terms of shooting video of my baby girl

Comparisons to other camcorders in price range:
This HC-V700K is Panasonic's mid-range camcorder, its so-to-speak "top of the line consumer" camcorder (next step up being prosumer, Panasonic X900MK). The HC-V700K is for all intents and purposes the 2012 version of the 2011 TM-90K, a very highly rated camcorder in 2011.

The two main camcorders i was considering in this price range was this Panasonic V700 and the Canon M500. The Canon M500 is Canon's 2012 successor to 2011's M400. The M400 was probably the best rated mid-range camcorder of 2011, most notably touted for its awesome pro-level sensor and low-light capabilities. The Canon M500 retains basically the same sensor and good low-light capabilities.

Why did I end up choosing the Panasonic over the Canon? To be honest, one reason was price. Currently, the Panasonic could be had for about $100 cheaper than the Canon. I think if both were the same price, I would have gone with the Canon. But $100 is a lot of dough these days, and I felt like from my research the differences in video quality between the Canon and Panasonic were probably not great enough (in my needs) to justify the extra money.

Style Name: Camcorder only Verified Purchase
Like another person here, i narrowed it down to the Canon HF 500 and this, the Panasonic HCV700. There is one reason i chose the Panasonic, it's wide angle lens. You can fit more in to the picture, quite a bit more. My girlfriend and i vlog on You Tube. We often hold the camera and point it at ourselves, or have to shoot in tight spaces. We tried the Canon HF500, and at arm's length you could barely fit your face in to the shot. With the Panasonic HCV700, we can fit much of our upper bodies! So, i think Panasonic is smart to advertise this as a "28mm Wide Angle" camcorder. It's true, and it's really nice.

I haven't tested this camera in all situations yet, but i can say that it's already looking nice in a somewhat dimly lit room. The 1/2" sensor in a camera this small is pretty amazing. If you're trying to decide between this and any of the lower priced models. Think about spending a little bit more on this because i believe the less expensive models come with a 1/5" sensor, and that's actually a huge difference in performance. Built in memory is the first thing i'd pass on. You can get SD cards relatively cheap, and save your money right there for the better sensor.

One thing i found to be really curious about this camera, however, is that it does 1080p 60 frames per second. I thought it would be a nice option to have, yet i figured i'd shoot mostly 30fps. Well, it never occurred to me that there ISN'T a 30fps (or 24fps) option on this camera! At 1080p, your only option is 60fps. I don't mind, but i've never seen a camera offer only 60fps. It's a look and feel some people may not like for all situations, and traditionally saved for fast action. Now, you can shoot 30p in half resolution of 960x 540, but of course that's not nearly as nice.
