Product Description

Panasonic HC-V210 HD Camcorder--Lightweight and Compact with 72x Intelligent Zoom

The lightweight and compact V210 packs a lot into a small package, while providing a full 135 minutes of recording time for high quality Full-HD recording. With its portable dimensions, yet powerful 72x Intelligent Zoom, the V210 is set to be a firm favourite.

Panasonic HC-V210
Lightweight and compact but still capable for recording high quality HD video.
1MOS 1/5:8" (2:20M) BSI Sensor

The new increased resolution, Back Side Illuminated sensor ensures great picture quality even when light levels are not at their best or when shooting indoors.

WIDE 32.3mm (F1.8) Panasonic Lens

Sometimes you want to video wide vistas or just fit a large group of people into the shot. This is where the 32.3mm equivalent wide angle lens on board this camera comes into its own. Its wide angle of view allows more of your subject into the picture, which is great for videoing indoors or when you are limited for space and can't step back far enough to fit everything in. Also the very large F1.8 aperture means you can still shoot even when the light is fading.

Panasonic Camcorder
A clever combination of optical and digital technology to get you even closer to your subject. Click for larger image
x72 Intelligent-zoom (Optical x38)

The V210 doesn't just offer a powerful optical zoom, it also includes a clever combination of optical and digital technology to get you even closer to your subject. The powerful image processing of the HD Crystal engine means that a high quality image can be created from the telephoto lens that is equivalent to an incredible 72x magnification (almost twice the optical zoom limit).

2.7" 230K Pixels Wide LCD Screen

A high quality wide aspect Liquid Crystal Display is offered with a 6.7 cm/2.7 inch viewing area that works well in bright light due to the Auto Brightness sensor that automatically increases brightness by up to 40% when in sunny conditions.

Power O.I.S. With Active Mode for Video

Power O.I.S. is about twice as effective as our conventional system at reducing low-frequency vibration-caused blur. It is especially useful when using high zoom or shooting night scenes. With the option of Active mode available during movie recording, videoing from a moving vehicle or while walking is also more precise.

1080/50p AVCHD Progressive Video Recording

1080/50p recording (Full-HD 1920 x 1080, 50 progressive recording) at a 28-Mbps bit rate conveys about twice the information of 1080i (interlace) recording to produce ultimately beautiful image quality. It minimises afterimages and flickering caused by subject motion, and renders crisp, detailed images with smooth-looking motion even when shooting a fast-moving subject in a sports event.

iFrame Recording Mode for Compatibility with Apple Macintosh Software

iFrame is a recording format suitable for viewing or editing on Mac (iMovie’11). Using iMovie’11, iFrame motion pictures can be imported faster than AVCHD motion pictures. Also, the imported file size of iFrame motion pictures will be smaller than that of AVCHD motion pictures.

iA (Intelligent Auto) Shooting Mode

Perfect for video novices, iA mode lets you shoot the movie without you having to worry about what settings to use. The camera intelligently works out the type of scene that you are trying to capture. Whether it's a person's face, a dramatic landscape, or a night time shot. The most commonly used shooting scenarios are programmed in to the camera and the camera makes all the internal settings automatically, leaving you to just press the record button.

10.0MP Still Picture Capture Mode

Digital Still pictures can be taken with this camcorder in three aspect ratios: 16:9, 4:3 and 3:2. Depending on the aspect ratio chosen, images with a resolution up to 10 mega pixels can be taken. This is very useful as it means the camcorder can be used to take photos when you do not have a Digital Still Camera available.

2 Channel Stereo Sound Recording

A built-in stereo microphone means high quality Dolby encoded stereo sound can be recorded when using movie mode.

I have been looking for a compact video camera for a while. I have a great DSLR that will take HD video, but it's a bit bulky and, of course, I am usually using it to take pictures when I want a video camera! When I saw the Panasonic HC-V210 I decided that it looked the part and ordered it.

First thing's first - it's tiny! This really is a fit-in-your-palm camera at just over 4.5 inches long, and it is very lightweight too so you're not going to get tired holding it for long periods of video action. The camera comes ready with battery, charger, and just about every cable you will need for connecting to TVs, etc. However, a couple of omissions were disappointing: there is no case of any sort, just a flick switch for a flimsy plastic lens cover, which I felt was a little bit short sighted of Panasonic. The lens is slightly recessed into the unit (as is the cover when activated), so it is less likely to get scratched or dirty. I also wasn't impressed with the lack of any storage option - this is a real niggle of mine. If you are buying, you need to buy a good quality memory card (an SD card) or the camera won't work. Given the low cost of memory cards these days, I'm at a loss as to why Panasonic haven't bundled one with the camera. Another option is to upgrade to the HC-V210M which has 16GB of built-in memory, but good luck finding one of those!

While I'm complaining, there are a couple of other matters that you should know. The device feels a little plasticky, especially the buttons on and around the flip-out screen. Finally, I don't like how the battery slots onto the back - it just looks and feels a bit like a design after-thought. But I am being picky here.

Whinging over......

The good news does, in many ways, outweigh the bad.

I have the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS bridge camera that offers 1080 pixel 24fps HD video seemingly negating the need for a camcorder such as this Panasonic. However while archiving our old MiniDV video tapes to disks I couldn't help notice how decent the video quality was compared to the still cameras video. In particular a dedicated camcorder is more elegant at zoom (as a stills camera needs to zoom quickly to get the shot, which appears very jerky in video), the Canon can get into difficulty focussing as you pan the shot, and the camcorder generally offers noticeably better sound. So I thought I'd get a cheap hi-def 16:9 camcorder to replace our families old Sony 4:3 MiniDV tape camcorder, as my three nephews are aged 3 to 12 and my 17 & 18 year old kids are growing out of teenage camera shyness and like shooting video. I chose this Panasonic HC-V210 for them, as although Which didn't test this model they rated the cheaper Panasonic V100 model fairly highly for video quality at its price point.

This Panasonic V210 has no inbuilt memory, so I used a 16Gb Sandisk class 10 SD-HC. The card gives around 2 hours 30 minutes of video depending on video quality. A slower class4 SD-HC card is the minimum spec, and the camcorder can handle SD HC/XC cards up to 64Gb, and works with Eye-Fi cards. Video record modes are GA (high quality), HG (normal), HE (lowest, unsuitable for sports) in 1080/50i and there's a 1080/50p progressive mode.

I have only 'played' with the features so far. The telephoto range is great but you do need a tripod for the long range. Optical image stability is superb unless you are trying to take video of the moon. The macro facility is great. I took a video of a bee inside a flower and when the video was played back on the HD TV via HDMI, with the flower filling the screen, you could see every hair on the bee's body and the pollen stuck to it in sharp detail.

The camera is plastic but very lightweight. Great value for money.

When the box from amazon containing the Panasonic V210 arrived I couldn't believe how small it was. Opening the box; you find the camcorder itself is yet smaller still. It truly is tiny; its about the size of a can of coke and weighs less. This low weight does point to one downside; its all plastic everywhere so don't bash it as you move about. Besides the v210 camera in the box is everything you need to get started except for the film - the V210 uses faster type 4 or higher SD Card's. These are very cheap these days and widely available as you travel.

Charging the battery is done on Camera with the bulky external charger plugging into the camera. Once charged up the battery lasts about 2 and 1/2 hours which is more than enough for a family day out; but if you are taking it on holiday or filming your opus you will want to take the charger (and maybe a spare battery too.)

Once you take it out; its very simple to use; the bright and clear screen pops (and rotates around so you can have a good view or show the person your are filming the image) out so you can see what you are filming; and if you use the hand loop on the right hand side (sorry lefties) the zoom, photo and video buttons all fall close to your thumb. I must admit i did wish the screen was touch enabled; which is a stretch at the price; but the menu buttons and video playback buttons are a little small and fiddly.

Out and about shooting video the small size makes the camera discreet. Shooting video the camera works fine with internal and daylight and the V210 makes a concerted effort to record in low light - its a bit noisy but you can see whats going on. The internal microphone suffers from wind noise whistle if you are filming outside.
