Product Description

Product Description

Intelligent 90x Zoom / 50X Optical Zoom
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
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
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
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
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
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
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!

Should be a 5 star recommendation, but the spare batteries are silly prices (£50 for the standard and € 92 for the larger version). Battery price is the only reason not to buy a Panasonic camcorder. The camcorder itself exceeded my expectations, recording quality is great, it is very compact and simple to use. HDMI is easy to connect to TV or laptop, The hybrid image stabilisation thingy works really well when recording while walking and driving across rough terrain. The zoom.is brilliant. I bought 2 Transcend 95MB/sec SDXC memory cards @ £30 each from another memory site in UK - no issue with them so far recording in HD. If the batteries drop to a realistic price, it would be a 5 star piece of kit.

Have only just received this camcorder, but so far I have found it easy to set up and the first trial videos have been of a good quality.
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.

There are better camcorders out there but nothing as good value as this. The length and quality of the zoom alone make it a winner but other features such as the wi-fi app top it off. Small enough to keep in a jacket pocket. Anti-shake system is the best out there as far as I am concerned (in this price range).

i did a lot of research comparing all the new panasonic models and chose this due to the incredible 90x zoom ( 90x magnification) with that i can see a plane about to land at stansted london from balsham cambridgeshire !! and i have the videos to prove it on youtube.com/user/chainsore 3inch screen good, very light as no hard drive, 2.5 hr battery supplied is ok but get a 4.5 hr battery if out all day theyre around £88 see my video review of this camcorder via my most popular videos via my youtube account. getsandisk extreme sdxc class 10 memory cards which are about £33 now for it and again i can fill 1 of those if out filming for a day so get a couple, also get a warranty ive broken my last 2 camcorders after about 3yrs use.1 drop and u can knacker them. so why no 5 stars well seller didnt say i was getting pan tilt thing..i didnt want it but i got it i paid £430 for this in march, also its not as easy to hold as my older panasonic due to no harddrive on side to grip onto ! the ois optical image stabalisation is exellent if your not too zoomed in, but if zoomed in 90x eg on moon its impossible to get a steady video even if you have the worlds most steady hands..you need a tripod, 1080p 50fps frames per second is noticably better than 1080p 25fps of my old camcorder , it looks like broadcast quality when u plug it into full hdtv, if u have panasonic tv u can use tv remote to play the videos. not tried the app for it or the pan tilt thing. also wind noise is a problem as no external mic can be plugged in..i hate wind noise when filming outdoors..panasonic need to fix that. for the money this is exellent and as its so small i can film from home windows that open out leaving small gap. i have hundreds of videos recorded on it online already so check out what it can do on youtube dot com / user / chainsore thanks
