Product description

Manufacturer's Description

Sometimes a scene is backlit or too dark, or it's difficult to get a good focus on the subject. Adjusting the settings every time is not only a hassle, it can be very tricky. That's where iA comes in. This powerful function senses the shooting conditions and automatically makes the settings and activates functions that will deliver optimal results. With both motion and still images, iA lets you forget about bothersome settings and makes it easy to capture beautiful, well-focused images.

advance o.i.sAdvanced Optical Image Stabiliser (Optical Image Stabilizer)
Panasonic’s advanced O.I.S. suppresses the effects of hand-shake as you shoot. You get all the beauty and none of the blurring, even at high zoom levels.

The O.I.S. lens moves up/down or left/right and bends the incoming light to correct hand-shake. It checks and compensates around 4,000 times per second. That means that the coreection area is 3 times what it was with the previous O.I.S.

iaIntelligent Contrast Control
By detecting the intensity of the ambient light and adjusting the exposure accordingly, Intelligent Contrast Control prevents blown highlights and blocked shadows. This helps render natural looking, highly nuanced images with proper contrast. Even when you’re shooting directly towards the light source - a very challenging situation in photography - Intelligent Contrast Control lets you capture clear images with enhanced depth.

The contrast looks natural. The woman shading on the beach has been brightened without making the background appear washed out.

Intelligent Scene Selection
The Scene Selector function analyses the shooting situation and automatically switches the camcorder to the Scene mode that will give you optimal results. It detects the situation and switches the scene mode automatically

Low Light
Use in dim lighting. This mode automatically switches to a slower shutter speed so that images across the entire frame are bright and easy to see.

Use this mode for scenes with particularly strong contrast, such as when you’re shooting a spotlit area on a darkened stage.

This mode is ideal for shooting wide landscapes and sweeping vistas, such as at the ocean or in the mountains. It balances the exposure over the entire frame to prevent brighter parts of the image, such as the sky, from being washed out or having blown highlights.

This mode captures faces beautifully. It automatically detects when there’s a face in the frame and adjusts the exposure to capture it correctly. The focus also emphasises the face.

AF Tracking
The new AF Tracking, which keeps the subject in focus even if it moves around to ensure continuously beautiful image quality. The standard auto mode focuses on the subject at the center of the screen, but AF Tracking allows the user to lock the focus on a subject even if it is at an edge of the screen. This is done by simply touching the selected subject on the touch-screen. AF Tracking ensures that the subject stays in focus even if it moves or turns away from the camcorder, thus recording images with the most suitable AF/AE (auto focus/auto exposure) settings.

“Lock-on and Shoot” your desired target via Touch Screen LCD.

Face Detection
Face Detection automatically senses the ambient lighting and adjusts the exposure accordingly, so faces are bright and easy to see. The focus also prioritises the faces, and skin tones are smoothed. Faces in the centre of the frame serve as the reference for adjustments, but the function can detect up to 15 faces in all.

An orange frame appears around the face as the basis for adjustment. Faces are captured beautifully - even in dim or backlit scenes.
