STEVE, Northampton Just point and shoot

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
8mp still photo capability is great, good zooming. I like the fact that you can put the cover over the lense by flicking a lever. Battery & SD card access is easy. It's handy to be able to zoom in on taken shots. Still got loads to learn about it yet.
Bad points:
There is no cover over the battery housing, makes it look a bit incomplete-just an asthetic point.

Manufacturer's Description

Fully equipped to capture every moment, the Panasonic HC-V130 delivers stunning Full HD footage and detailed stills in all conditions. Compact flipscreen design allows you to keep your eye on the action from any angle, while built-in image stabilisation keeps every second rock solid.

Powerful zoom
The HC-V130 enables ultra-telephoto 38x optical zoom shooting with a compact body. This can be boosted all the way to 75x with digitally aided Intelligent Zoom where the original image quality captured by the lens remains intact, all the way from wide-angle to powerful zoom.

Low light performance
The 2.51 megapixel BSI MOS Sensor has improved high sensitivity performance to record easy-to-see, clear images even in dimly lit situations.

Sharp stills
You can shoot still picture at high resolution 8.9 megapixels. This makes it possible to record important scenes in either video or still images.


Auto recording

Creative effects
Filter effects like miniature, 8mm movie, silent movie and time lapse recording make it possible to capture impressive video that is matched to the shooting situation.
