O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) - Suppresses hand shake in both motion and still pictures
Panasonic's O.I.S. minimizes the hand-shake that can be such a problem with handheld shots. Because Panasonic's system is optical, there is no image quality degradation. When you're shooting a still picture, the MEGA O.I.S. system automatically activates, doubling* the corrective power.
With O.I.S. and MEGA O.I.S., the camcorder is equipped for clear, beautiful shooting of both motion and still pictures.

Pure Color Engine - High-performance imaging processing
The Pure Color Engine converts the CCD output signal from a complementary color signal into an RGB signal at an early stage and extracts the low-frequency luminance component from the RGB signal. This innovative engine also achieves truly superb color reproduction for high-zoomed pictures

32x Optical Zoom - Pull distant subjects right up close
This 32x zoom can fill the screen with even a distant subject. This lens is not only the powerful zoom offered in a home-use digital camcorder, it also features low distortion. And because it's optical, there is no quality loss - you get the images in all their natural beauty.

High Quality MPEG 2 Engine - Capture even complex motion with precision
Panasonic's MPEG2 engine is a wide-range, high-precision search engine that produces smooth, beautiful motion pictures. Because it precisely records the differences in each frame, it can render fast, complex motions - like those of athletes in the thick of the action - with exceptional precision. The MPEG2 engine also uses Variable Bit Rate technology that Panasonic developed for the high-end DIGA DVD recorder. Giving LP recordings nearly twice the resolution captured with previous Panasonic camcorders, this lets the camcorder record clear, smoothly flowing pictures.

High-Picture-Quality Wide 2.7" LCD - Shoot wide, view wide
This model offers the High-Picture-Quality Wide Mode, which produces images that make for beautiful, dramatic viewing on a wide-screen TV. The image is processed on 16:9 area of the CCD. Because the image decoded has the same proportions as your wide-screen TV, there is virtually no picture quality degradation. You get beautiful images and all the excitement and dynamism on either a wide 16:9 screen TV or a conventional 4:3 TV. This model also features a wide 2.7-inch LCD, making it easier to frame shots when you're shooting in 16:9 mode. You can enjoy shooting wide, and viewing wide.   

8cm DVD-RAM / DVD-RW / DVD-R DL (Dual Layer) DVD-R - Choose the media you want with multi-format ease
DVD camcorder models can record and play DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, DVD-R DL and DVD-R discs. With the DVD-RAM disc, you can record again and again on the same disc, up to tens of thousand times, and view it without any finalising process. You can record repeatedly on DVD-RW discs as well, and they are well suited to editing. While you can record only once on DVD-R DL, DVD-R discs, they can be played back on almost any kind of DVD player or recorder. With DVD camcorder's wide compatibility, you can record on whichever kind of disc works best in your DVD player or recorder.

XP/SP/LP Mode - Select the recording mode to match your needs
This unit records in VBR. VBR is an abbreviation for Variable Bit Rate. VBR recording automatically varies the bit rate (amount of data in a fixed time) depending on the subject being recorded. This means if a subject with sharp movements is recorded, the recording time is reduced.

Simultaneous Motion Video & Still Picture Recording - Take beautiful stills without switching cameras
The joystick makes the camera much easier to use, letting you control all basic operations with one hand. As you shoot, just watch the image in the monitor and follow the instruction guide. You can handle a number of operations quickly and easily, without even taking your eye off the subject.

One -Touch Navigation & Joystick Control - Easy Operation
The joystick makes the camera much easier to use, letting you control all basic operations with one hand. As you shoot, just watch the image in the monitor and follow the instruction guide. You can handle a number of operations quickly and easily, without even taking your eye off the subject.

Help Mode - Find out what each icon means
Not sure what a certain icon means? Just switch on the Help mode and select the icon. It's explained for you on the LCD monitor. This makes it easier to learn the icons, and you spend less time reading the operating manual.

Quick Search & Access with Disc Navigator - Index screen for simple searching
Unlike videotape, you don't need to rewind or fast-forward to search for specific scenes. The camcorder LCD screen displays a list of the recorded scenes for quick and easy searching.

Instant ON/OFF - Power ON/OFF linked to LCD and EVF operation
Instant On / Off reduces the time required for operating the camera. When you open the LCD, the power turns on. Shut it and the power turns off. Pull out the viewfinder and the power turns on. Put it back and the power turns off.

Built-in LED Light - Shoot motion pictures even in dark places
When illumination is insufficient, turn on the built-in LED video light to take crisp, colorful movies. The LED (light emitting diode) has low power consumption, long service life, and the safety of a low operating temperature.

MagicPix Images - Capture crisp, vivid images-even in dim light
MagicPix Images gives you smoothly flowing pictures even in dark places, where it's normally difficult to capture good shots.

No Cables to Connect - Easy viewing on TV
The DVD camcorders give you cable-free, connection-free playback. Just slip the disc into your DVD player and let the show begin

High Speed Transfer to Panasonic DIGA - Speedy editing
With DVD's high-speed data transfer, you can dub your recordings - even large volumes - quickly and easily onto a DVD video recorder's hard disk drive. Enjoy sophisticated editing with the DVD recorder, or save your recordings onto DVD and create a collection of your own DVDs..

Included Editing Software - Edit Images easily on a PC

USB 2.0 (HS Mode) - High Speed Data Transfer to PC
