POWER O.I.S. with Active Mode
The V100M features an Intelligent Zoom function that goes all the way up to 42x. When using Intelligent Zoom, Intelligent Resolution technology lets you shoot at high zoom rates while preserving the image resolution. You get sharp images of highly detailed objects – without the blurry edges.
High Sensitivity Sensor
The High Sensitivity Sensor on the V100M has a higher level of sensitivity than conventional sensors, to make dark scenes brighter and more beautiful. Ideal for shooting indoors, at parties, and in similar situations, it greatly increases your shooting opportunities.
The 32.5mm wide-angle setting fits more people and more of the background into the frame than conventional models. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room. It fits your subjects in even when you shoot from up close, and makes it possible to pick up even small sounds with the mic.
Simultaneous Still Picture Recording at 2.1 Megapixels
The V100M can capture 2.1-megapixel still images while video shooting. Also, when playing back the videos you shot, you can cut out 2.1-megapixel still images of any scene you want.
Long Recording of Approximately 155 Minutes Per Charge
The V100M has achieved the low power consumption, allowing it to record continuously for up to 155 minutes. This allows you 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.
iA (Intelligent Auto)
This powerful function senses the shooting conditions and automatically makes the settings and activates functions that will deliver optimal results. iA does the bothersome settings for you and makes it easy to capture beautiful, well-focused images.
0.6-Sec Quick Start
Use Quick Start mode. You simply flip open the LCD and you're ready to shoot in just 0.6 second. When Eco mode is also used, the power turns off whenever the camcorder has not been operated for 5 minutes. This reduces wasted power consumption, and enables a longer battery life. iFrame Mode
The V100/V100M lets you record videos in the iFrame. With iFrame, the video in your camera is the same format you'll edit, so it's fast to import and edit with compatible video editing software. iFrame is based on standards, so it works with a number of applications – such as iMovie.
Handy for travellers, this function makes it easy to set the camcorder time when you cross time zones and again when you return home. Simply select your destination from the displayed map, and the camcorder is automatically set for that time zone. The time for two different places can be set – such as home and destination – and you can switch between the times by simply pressing a button.
Easy Connecting, Easy Viewing
Just connect your HD camcorder to an HDTV and get ready for an incredible high-definition video show. If your TV is HDMI compatible, a single HDMI mini cable is all you need. When using a video component cable, you need a separate audio cable.
Connect your HD camcorder to a VIERA or compatible Blu-ray Disc Player via an HDMI mini cable, and you can control both units in synchronized operation with a single remote control. This kind of simple, easy operation makes it enjoyable to view your recordings.
Playback with SD Card
Just slip the SD card from your camcorder into the SD card slot on your VIERA TV or Blu-ray Disc Player, and you're ready to view Full-HD moving images recorded.
Editing, Archiving and YouTube or Facebook Uploading
HD Writer LE 1.1 software, included with the camcorder, makes it easy to play or edit videos on your PC and have more fun when the shooting's done.
When the camcorder is connected to a PC, the software automatically starts up. Importing data takes only a few clicks of the mouse.
Easy YouTube and Facebook Uploading
The videos you've recorded are easily uploaded to YouTube or Facebook in their original high quality. HD Writer LE 1.1 lets you share your videos worldwide.
It's easy to add titles, rearrange scenes, provide transition effects, and edit images in single frame units.
Make a copy either in the original high-definition AVCHD format, or in the standard-definition DVD-Video (MPEG-2) format.
