Feature-packed, Hybrid Full-HD Camcorder with Intelligent Zoom and 33.7mm wide-angle lens

Panasonic’s High Definition HDC-HS80 camcorder features a 33.7mm wide lens, 42x Intelligent Zoom and the newly developed Hybrid O.I.S and Face Recognition. These slim and stylish camcorders are perfect for anyone who is looking for an easy-to-operate model with superb image quality and extra portability.

Full-HD 1920 x 1080 Recording with a 120-GB HDD and SD Card Slot

The hybrid-type HS80 records onto the 120-GB HDD and SDXC, SDHC or SD Memory Card. The HS80 features Intelligent Resolution Technology and is equipped with Crystal Engine Pro, which helps to record extremely clear, crisp motion images. It also eliminates the colour smear that tends to occur at subject edges.

HYBRID O.I.S. means that when your hands are shaky, your film won’t be

HYBRID OIS (Optical Image Stabiliser) helps reduce blur due to arm and hand shake with a lens in the optical system and a sensor in the electrical system. This detects blurring caused not only by vertical or horizontal wrist movements, but also the subtle blurring that occurs when the entire arm moves vertically or horizontally. It also achieves powerful correction during zooming , even on the move.

Get more in the frame with a widelens and Intelligent Zoom

The 33.7mm wide-angle lens is fantastic for recording indoors or in tight spaces, making it possible to shoot your subject at a close distance and still fit the surrounding area into the frame. It also means the voice of the subject can be clearly recorded, which is an important element in video recordings. Meanwhile, the Optical Zoom feature ensures magnificent images because it causes no degradation in image quality. In addition, the Intelligent Zoom provides a super-powerful 42x zooming capability, achieving stunningly clear Full-HD images even at high zoom levels.

Let iA (Intelligent Auto) do all the hard work

iA (Intelligent Auto) features the special Face Recognition function which recognises the faces of previously registered subjects and automatically optimises the focus and exposure for those people. iA even continues to track the subjects as they move anywhere within the LCD frame, making it ideal for video shooting.

Easy to operate touch-screen technology

For shooting convenience, this camcorder offers a 2.7” LCD screen with advanced Touch Operation. This allows for extremely smooth shooting and playback (ncluding Touch Zoom, to swiftly move in and out at the touch of a finger) and Touch Shutter, where you automatically focus and take a photo by touching the subject on the screen.

Share your memories via your favourite social networking sites

For easier sharing of your memories, the included software makes it quick and easy to upload your videos to YouTube and Facebook. For added convenience, the HS80 also supports the iFrame (960 x 540/30p) video recording format, which is optimal for Mac users to import quickly and maintain small file sizes.
