Product Information

product description

This outstanding Panasonic video camera is equipped with super-powerful intelligent 80x digital zoom and 50x optical zoom, enabling you to capture shots of craters on the moon!

Even if subjects are distant or inaccessible, the HC-V520-EBK takes you up close to them for clear, high-quality video capture. It’s the ideal feature for shooting wildlife on safari, cosmic subjects or those concerts where you’re just a little too far from the stage.

Wide-angle lens

You’ll be able to capture everything you see in comfort with the 28 mm wide-angle lens included with the camcorder. Take in the full expanse of stunning landscapes, encompass buildings in their entirety or make sure everyone is included when videoing family gatherings with this great all-encompassing lens.

Premium video and photo quality

The Panasonic HCV-520E-BK Camcorder is fitted with a 2.25 megapixel BSI sensor that records video footage in stunning 1920 × 1080p Full HD quality.

It features enhanced high-sensitivity performance – you’ll find it so easy to record clear, detailed and richly-coloured images, even in low-light conditions. Feel total satisfaction as even ordinary events are recorded to be viewed back in genuinely high-quality.

The sensor is also capable of recording 10 megapixel still images, so you can capture high-res photographs to intersperse with your video footage when editing – the creative potential on tap is huge!

Beautifully stable videography

Be assured that your videos will be rendered with enhanced focus thanks to the addition of five-axis HYBRID optical image stabilisation (OIS), which completely represses blurring across the full shooting range.

The H-CV520EB-K Full HD Video Camera also boasts improved visual balance and orientation thanks to its Level Shot Function, which automatically establishes and corrects for the effects of tilting in your videos.

Crisp, clear images are yours with dramatically diminished blur and better horizontal evenness, even if you’re shooting in unsteady conditions or from awkward angles, such as high- or low-angle capture.

Smartphone sharing is easy with NFC

Supporting NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, the Panasonic HCV520-EBK HD Camcorder marks a progressive new direction for personal video devices.

With NFC you can achieve one-touch connection with a smartphone, without the need for awkward settings. Once connected, you can use your smartphone to remotely check audio recording levels and characteristics, zoom in or out, turn the shutter on or off and control other functions, all whilst viewing the live image.

You’ll also be able to enjoy Highlight Playback using your phone or tablet, sharing standout footage or images on SNS using an easy drag-and-drop operation. Video sharing just took on a whole new dimension.

WiFi function for live broadcasting

On top of its amazing NFC capabilities, the H-CV-520EBK Full HD Camcorder is equipped with a WiFi function that lets you broadcast your images and events in real time using Ustream.

Make contact and share your recordings with people around the world, and make use of the handing email function whereby you can send notifications of the start of streaming to pre-registered email addresses.

The camera also expands to security and other practical personal features with its Home Monitoring feature. Check on your pets or family at home from the outside, even communicating with them as you see them on the screen, and record remote images using your smartphone.
