Panasonic HC-W580 Camcorder (2.51 MP, 50 x Zoom, FHD, Wi-Fi, 3 inch LCD) - Black.
From the manufacturer
90x Intelligent/50x Optical Zoom
Easily capture distant objects that are too far away to shoot with conventional zoom functions – thanks to 90x Intelligent Zoom. You can also use the 50x Optical Zoom to zoom in on your subject to add more emotion and dynamics to your homemade footage.
28 mm Wide-Angle*
Get group shots with ease.
Fit more people and more of the background into the frame – the 28 mm Wide-Angle function (35 mm camera equivalent) makes it possible. This is handy when you want to take a group shot in a small room. It fits objects in even when you shoot from up close, and makes it possible to pick up even small sounds with the camcorder's built-in microphone.
* 35 mm camera equivalent
Twin camera function
With a rotatable sub camera that lets you take shots from two angles at once.
The Backup Function records picture in picture without a sub window for backup.
The sub camera is recorded into any one of the various sub windows and the display position can be changed by touch operation.
Film the family and a selfie.
Wireless multi camera
Add extra emotion to your footage.
Enjoy a new kind of shooting style that lets you add even more emotion to your movies. Using Wi-Fi, you can link to as many as three smartphones and simultaneously record up to two of them as sub-windows. These sub-window images can be interchanged and their display positions can be switched. This lets you shoot from a variety of angles and viewpoints, to capture a higher level of emotional impact.
HDR (High Dynamic Range) Movie
Enjoy crisp and clear videos thanks to the HDR Movie function.
This feature combines two images taken with different exposures to suppress blown highlights and blocked shadows.
Easily capture natural videos with gradation even in difficult filming situations such as backlighting.
All this function with a dedicated HDR button enabling quick mode changes when necessary.
Level Footage at All Times
The Level Shot function automatically detects and corrects the tilting of images so you can shoot carefree. The setting can be adjusted to one of three levels – OFF, Normal or Strong* – for the shooting condition.
* Not available with 4K mode.
Clear, Blurless Results
HYBRID O.I.S.+ uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring caused by unwanted shaking – whether you are shooting with a wide angle or at high zoom. This lets you capture crisp, clear images in 4K and other formats, in virtually every shooting situation.

Wi-Fi features are really good for remote control and monitoring
Very good optical + digital (so called intelligent) picture stabilization - beats optical only stabilization.
Other good features are automatic levelling, excellent useable 90 times zoom (including small digital contribution) but 2nd camera is a bit of a gimmick in my opinion.
Overall excellent value for money and highly recommended
There are some CONS. Sadly it has no ear phone socket. It has no MIC input (it would have been perfect if it had a MIC input and hot-shoe to hold an external MIC) There is no Infra-red night vision. It's 1080 and not 4K, but I'm not bothered about 4K at the momemnt as I make HD youtube clips and 4K is an over kill for that. No manual focus ring (forced focus is done on the touch screen) It can suffer wind noise, but I've seen some place sponge/foam over the MIC's. It has no remote control. It can suffer slightly in low light, dark conditions.
There are some PROS. The zoom is incredible when set up right in the menu options. It's a tiny small cam that can fit in a pocket. It has a dual cam for selfies for those that need it. The biggest selling point is the zoom. If you're thinking about buying one then you're already interested and need that zoom, otherwise you wouldn't be here reading this. The zoom is so powerful you'll need a tripod/monopod as it needs to be absolutely rigid when zooming in on the horizon.
So to sum up, it's all about that zoom and this is what I needed without buying anything too expensive or bulky or buying extra lenses, etc. This is an all in one tiny gadget that is just as good as some semi-pro camcorders and for the price, it's perfectly ideal for zoom enthusiasts who need it. I nearly bought an DSLR and glad I didn't and got this Panasonic instead.
Zoom is clear,bright and smooth with great picture quality Cannot comment yet on the "extra and totally unnecessary" lens on the touch screen.
Movies are a doddle with the automatic function so turn it on and have some fun with superb,crystal clear results.
It's small, weighs next to nothing, packs away neatly and the battery lasts for hours.
I'd recommend it.
