Panasonic Full HD Camcorder HC-V550CTEB – Placing the Ability to Capture Beautiful Images in Your Hand
Introducing the V550CT, a mid range camcorder that is conveniently big on features. For example, capture everything from close up portraits to landscapes and drag the faraway closer with a comprehensive zoom range that offers the equivalent of 90x at the telephoto end, getting you much closer to the action than conventional zooms.
Intelligent 90x Zoom / 50X Optical Zoom
Capture everything from close up portraits to landscapes and drag the faraway closer with a comprehensive zoom range that offers the maximum equivalent of 90x at the telephoto end.
10 Megapixel Stills
Enjoy the added flexibility and creativity of being able to capture not just highly defined video clips but also high-resolution digital still photos with the V550CT. Enjoy 10 megapixel images recorded in a 16:9 aspect ratio.
Level Shot Function
To ensure any video clips are always professionally straight and level, the V550CT features a very handy Level Shot function that not only automatically detects but also automatically corrects any tilting in the image being captured. All Panasonic’s 2014 models feature hybrid processing that uses a gyro sensor that adjusts for any tilt in an image by 30% for more stable shooting. Thus images are improved even when shooting one-handed, holding the device at arm’s length, or when filming low to the ground.
5-Axis Hybrid OIS
The V550CT utilises five-axis image stabilisation and correction throughout its large zoom range to avoid blur resulting from shaking of the unit. Because of this users are able to achieve clear results from maximum wideangle to extreme telephoto setting, and in low light shooting situations too.
Baby Monitor Function
As well as providing beautiful High Definition video and memories you will forever treasure, the V550CT’s Wi-Fi connectivity means that it can be used as a remote baby monitor by busy families to keep a close check on the baby even when you’re in another room. A clever Push Notification function on the camcorder alerts the smartphone or tablet if a voice sensor detects the baby waking up or making a sound. Parents can even speak to the baby over the monitor.
28mm Wide Angle Lens
An extremely broad focal range on offer translates into a wide range of framing opportunities, making it possible for anyone using the V550CT to capture everything from dynamic panoramas to close up candid portraits from afar.
Remote Pan Tilt Cradle Compatibility
The V550CT is compatible with Panasonic’s VW-CRT1 Remote Pan Tilt Cradle, supplied together with this camcorder. Hook the V550CT up to this device and thanks to built-in motion sensor and face recognition functions you can automatically – and remotely – capture video of everyone’s faces at parties and social gatherings – allowing you to interact with friends and family rather than being the one stuck behind the camera!The same motion sensor functionality also lets users of the V550CT watch over pets when away from home, with the ability also to control the camcorder remotely via your smartphone if downloading the free Panasonic Image App.
Highlight Playback and Easy Share with NFC and One Touch Connection
This camcorder allows its users to playback highlights with a smartphone or tablet straight after they have been shot. Favourite scenes can be shared on social media platforms via a simple drag and drop operation. There is the further ability to create a photo collage of highlights with the best scenes picked out automatically from video.Further simplicity is provided with the provision of NFC connectivity, which allows users to interact between the camcorder and NFC-equipped smartphone or tablet with a single touch. Even if you don’t have NFC, there is the ability to use a QR code to adjust settings quickly and easily via Wi-Fi. Full HD real time broadcasting can also be undertaken, with events live streamed on USTREAM as they are being recorded!

On extreme telephoto zoom it is true you have to a really steady hand or tripod, but as this is the main reason I purchased this particular model I am more than happy to persevere and practice standing still with support rather than walking when utilising the maximum zoom.
Because I purchased through Amazon I am entitled to a two year extended warranty (hope I do not need it) and also a £50.00 cashback which is going to pay for a spare battery and SD card, this making the high end price much more acceptable.
Well I certainly did see,its amazing. 90x zoom ( optical ) up to 3000x (yes it is a little overboard) but I found even up to 150x its still pretty damn good quality and I wouldn't go over 350x as you really do see the 'grain'. Great camcoder easy to use hooks up fine to pc with included usb lead. I haven't used the thing to take a static picture yet (I have a better camera for that sort of thing). I was hoping with its wifi it might hook up to the pc wireless but it does not (shame) over than that an awesome little camcorder.
