The Panasonic W580 Full HD 1080p handheld camcorder brings the joy of video creation to life with innovative features like multi-camera scene picture-in-picture recording via a second built-in camera, or by adding a WiFi link to a mobile device the camera to increase creative possibilities. A 50x optical zoom with 5-axis image stability and up to 90x intelligent zooming get you close to the action, plus an exclusive High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode brings imaging to life by reclaiming the highlights and shadows lost by most compact camcorders.
