Capture life, in HD
The PM5K is a full HD camera which lets you capture incredible colour and detail, every time you shoot. You can also take clean, crisp still shots with the 5 megapixel CMOS image sensor. And when you want to get up close and personal the 4x Digital zoom lets you capture the finer details.
Unique swivel lens
The PM5K features a unique lens which swivels over a 270 degree range so you can film from any angle. If you're a video blogger and you want to film yourself, simply swivel the lens to face you. The camera instantly powers on when you rotate the lens outwards so it's perfect for those spontaneous moments. What's more, the add-on lens adaptor on the PM5K means you can capture life in 360 degrees for the ultimate panoramic video (for viewing on a PC with supplied PMB software and 360 video player).
Simple shooting, outstanding results
It's easy to use the PM5K thanks to the dedicated movie and photo buttons that let you seamlessly switch between the video recording and camera function with just one click. SteadyShot® image stabilisation technology on the PM5K is designed to reduce the blur that can occur during handheld shooting. While Face Detection technology focuses on the faces in your videos and still images - so that they don't get lost in the background and stand out in all your shots and recordings.

Rotate to play
Rotate the camera horizontally so it's in landscape position, and you can watch playback of your video footage on the 2.4" LCD screen. There are three recording and playback formats; full HD 1920 x 1080 (ideal for playback on HDTV); 1280 x 720 (which gives you a smooth playback and is perfect for when you want to record sports or action footage); and SD 640 x 480 (great for super fast space saving uploads).
