An all-new lens, sensor and engine combine for powerful zooming and high sensitivity in new Panasonic HC-W850 Twin Camera Full HD Camcorder. The effective area is increased to achieve the high image quality of 6.03M effective pixels. This gives you bright, beautiful shots even in dark places. The information processing speed has advanced to about 1.5 times the conventional speed. New Noise Reduction has reduced noise for crisp, vibrantly colorful Full-HD images.

It is a Full HD camcorder that features a secondary, "B-angle" camera built-in to the flip-out LCD display. The camcorder can record 1920 x 1080p video at up to 60 frames per second and also features a push-button slow-motion capability that can record slow-motion video in HD resolution at up to 120 frames per second.

For the first time in a consumer video camera, four lens groups are driven to achieve both high picture quality and a compact size. The wide shooting range expands the breadth of photographic expression, extending from 29.5mm wide angle to Intelligent 50x zooming. This makes it possible to capture everything from panoramic scenery to telephoto images for obtaining dynamic images of subjects at a distance.

HYBRID O.I.S. + uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring all the way from wide-angle to powerful zoom shots. This lets you capture crisp, clear images, without blurring, in almost every shooting situation. The Level Shot function automatically detects and corrects the tilting of captured images. 2014 models use hybrid processing based on an acceleration sensor plus a gyro sensor to improve tilt tracking by 30&percent; for more stable shooting. Images are more level even when shooting in an unstable or awkward position, such as low angle or high angle.

Which do you want to capture? Lovable animals at play or the ear-to-ear smiles of your children watching them? Until now, you had to choose only one, but the Twin Camera gives you both. And the sub camera can shoot at any angle you want. See how much fun dual shooting can be. This model Series includes a rotatable sub camera. Parallel 2-system processing with the Crystal Engine PRO+ lets you shoot from the side or rear at the same time.

You can catch a shot of someone at the side, a self portrait, or both a tele and wide-angle shot from the front. The sub camera records into a sub window, which you can move by dragging & dropping. A special damping material is provided in the space between the mic and the mic net to suppress wind noise to less than 1/3 that of conventional models, for clear recording always. Compared to the HC-V720 Series.

  • 6.03MP Sensor with Back-illumination: The camcorder's 6.03MP MOS image sensor features back-illumination and improved image processing for up to 1.3 time better low-light performance compared to the previous generation, with processing speeds that are approximately 1.5 times faster
  • Twin Camera Design: In addition to the main 6.03MP camera built into the body, the HC-W850 features a secondary 3.8MP camera attached to the flip-out LCD screen. The secondary camera rotates horizontally 270° allowing you to capture two separate camera angles at once and record them simultaneously. For example, you can use the main camera with its zoom lens for your close-up shots and the second camera for a wide shot to cover the whole scene. Alternative, you can use it to catch reaction shots of yourself while filming your subject with the main camera. Video from the secondary camera is superimposed at VGA (640 x 480) resolution, picture-in-picture-style, in a corner of the main image
  • O.I.S+ Optical Image Stabilizer: Uses a combination of optical and electronic image stabilization working across five axes to counteract unwanted camera shake. This feature can be disabled for tripod shooting or other situations where image stabilization is not required
  • Advanced Level Shot Function: Applies correction algorithm to compensate for unwanted side-to-side tilt especially when shooting handheld. This features offers three setting depending on the amount of tilting correction required: Off, Normal, and Strong
  • Capture Slow Motion at Full HD: Records natively at up 120 fps in Full HD resolution. In addition, the Intelligent Frame Creation feature allows you to apply a 2x slow-down to your footage in-camera, allowing you to create videos with an effective 240 fps for extreme slow-motion effects
  • 4-drive Lens System: Designed to keep the form-factor compact while incorporating the drive system required to move a 20x zoom lens
  • Built-In Wi-FI and NFC: Allows you to connect the camcorder to a smartphone, tablet, or other mobile device that supports the Panasonic Imaging App so you can share your images through social media websites and stream live video using Ustream. With NFC (Near Field Connection) you will be able to configure the wireless connection simply by tapping your mobile device to the camcorder
  • Baby Monitor: Set up the camera in your baby's room and view a live video feed using the Panasonic Imaging App. In addition, you can program the app to trigger an automated alert when your baby start's crying or a voice is detected
  • Supports Remote Pan Tilt Cradle: This optional accessory, sold separately, uses a motion sensor featured on the camcorder to automatically track a moving subject when mounted between the camera and a tripod. The cradle has a 180° range of horizontal motion and a 15° vertical range. In addition, when combined with Wi-Fi connectivity, the cradle can be used as a remote pan/tilt control system for the camera, allowing you to operate the camcorder even if mounted in an inaccessible location or from another room
  • Creative Effects: The Creative Effects menu allows you to add the following stylistic effects to your movies in camera: Miniature Effect, 8mm Movie, and Silent Movie. In addition, Time Lapse Recording allows you to capture a series of still images at intervals and play them back as video to compress an event into a fraction of real time for an accelerated effect
