The Panasonic HC-W580M Twin Camera Full HD Camcorder fits perfectly in the palm of your hand – and is highly powerful for filming fun footage. Twin Camera and Wireless Multi Camera give you more creative options. And the high zoom pulls in distant objects for added dynamics. With HDR Movie, you get crisp detail in both bright and dark areas.


Features

90x Intelligent / 50x Optical Zoom
Easily capture distant objects that are too far away to shoot with conventional zoom functions – thanks to the Panasonic HC-W580M camcorder’s 90x Intelligent Zoom. You can also use the 50x Optical Zoom to zoom in on your subject to add more emotion and dynamics to your homemade footage.

28mm Wide-Angle
Fit more people and more of the background into the frame – the 28mm Wide-Angle function (35mm camera equivalent) makes it possible. This is especially handy when you want to take a group shot in a small room. It fits objects in even when you shoot from up close, and makes it possible to pick up even small sounds with the camcorder's built-in microphone.

Twin Camera
This Panasonic HC-W580M camcorder includes a rotatable sub camera that lets you take shots from two angles at once. For example, you can capture the family and a selfie, or both tele and wide-angle shots. A Backup function records a picture in picture image and a main camera image without a sub window for backup. The sub camera image is recorded into any one of various sub windows, and its display position can be changed by touch operation.

Wireless Multi Camera
Enjoy a new kind of shooting style that lets you add even more emotion to your movies. Using Wi-Fi, you can link the Panasonic HC-W580M camcorder to as many as three smartphones and simultaneously record up to two of them as sub-windows. These sub-window images can be interchanged, and their display positions can be switched. This lets you shoot from a variety of angles and viewpoints, to capture a higher level of emotional impact.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) Movie
Enjoy crisper, clearer videos thanks to the HDR Movie function. It combines two images taken with different exposures to suppress blown highlights and blocked shadows. Even in difficult shooting situations, such as backlighting, you can easily capture natural videos with excellent gradation. A dedicated HDR button enables quick mode changes when necessary.

Level Footage at All Times
So you can film carefree, the Level Shot function of the Panasonic HC-W580M automatically detects and corrects the tilting of images. The setting can be adjusted to one of three levels - OFF, Normal or Strong - for the shooting condition.

Clear, Blurless Results
HYBRID O.I.S.+ uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring caused by unwanted shake – whether you are shooting with a wide angle or at high zoom. This lets you capture crisp, clear images in virtually every shooting situation.
