Product Details

Panasonic SDR-H80 Blue 60GB Standard Definition Hard Disc Drive Camcorder - SDRH80A

Optical 70x Ultra Zoom and Advanced O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization)
This 70x zoom lens has the power you need to take dramatic close-ups or get remarkable shots of even distant subjects. But with long-distance zoom shots, even a tiny bit of hand shake has a huge effect on picture quality. That's where optical image stabilization comes in. Panasonic's Advanced O.I.S. shifts a corrective lens as you shoot to help eliminate the effects of hand shake, so you get clear, sharp shots even at high zoom levels. It's an essential feature for getting the most out of this incredible zoom lens.

Make optimal settings automatically - for both still and motion images with iA (Intelligent Auto)
With the H80, you can use the iA function whether you're shooting in motion or still images. In iA mode the camera detects the shooting situation and automatically activates whichever functions - such as Advanced O.I.S., Face Detection, and Intelligent Scene Selector - will deliver the optimal results. Forget about bothersome settings during important scenes and trust iA to give you the optimal shots.

Anyone can enjoy easy, video uploading! Easy Uploading to YouTube(TM) - with the included software "VideoCam Suite"
Step 1: Shoot. YouTube(TM) limits videos to 10 minutes. In Web mode the camcorder uses a 10-minute countdown system, so you're assured that the recording won't be too long for YouTube(TM), and you won't have to edit it down after shooting.
Step 2: Connect. The Upload mode in the VideoCam Suite is automatically activated as soon as the camcorder is connected to the PC.
Step 3: Upload. To upload, simply choose the image file you want and click the Upload button. Encoding is no longer a hassle, as the software does all the work for you.

Quick and Easy Editing - VideoCam Suite 2.0
The software walks you through simple editing steps. You'll find it easy to edit your own videos even if you've never done it before.

      I wanted this camera for recording onto a memory card, but footage was jerky. I was also unimpressed with the quality from the footage recorded to the hard drive.
