Full HD Camcorder HC-V100 with lightweight & compact design, providing Intelligent 42x Zoom and 165 minutes recording time

The HC-V100 enable ultra-telephoto 42x zoom shooting with a compact body. They use an Intelligent Zoom that employs super-high resolution technology, the Image Processing LSI, and offer ultra-telephoto Intelligent Zoom shooting to exceed the magnification range of the ordinary optical zoom. The new models can capture beautiful pictures beyond the ordinary 34x optical zoom and up to a high-powered 42x zoom. This powerful zoom brings faraway subjects right up close to capture dynamic images that fill the entire frame.

The HC-V100 is equipped with a high-quality optical hand-shake compensation function essential for compact, lightweight camcorders. The POWER O.I.S. suppresses hand-shake without degrading the image quality. The O.I.S. also features an Active mode to assure clear, beautiful images across the entire range from wide-angle to telephoto. Because it is an optical system, it causes no image degradation. As a result, the original image quality captured by the lens remains intact, all the way from wide-angle to powerful zoom.

The HC-V100 has achieved low power consumption, allowing it to record continuously for up to 165 minutes.* This allows the user to continue recording without worrying about the remaining battery power. It’s especially convenient and reassuring when it’s difficult to charge the battery, such as on a trip or in outdoor shooting. * 165 minutes of recording time with a fully charged battery (HA mode) in PAL areas.

The 32.5mm wide-angle* on the V100 Series fits more people and more of the background into the frame than conventional models. Ideal for shooting in small spaces or for capturing a subject together with the backbround. * 35mm camera equivalent.

The iA function automatically selects the most suitable shooting mode at the press of a button. The iA function consists of four functions: POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), Intelligent Scene Selector, Face Detection and Intelligent Contrast Control.
