  • Top features:

    - Shoot even closer with optical and digital zoom

    - Sharp and clear shots thanks to electronic image stabilisation

    - Record people shots, landscapes and more with 32.3 mm lens

    - Quality and control options with effects

    With the Panasonic HC-V160EB-K Camcorder you'll be able to zoom in close to subjects while keeping every high-quality video stable and sharp.

    Shoot even closer

    Thanks to its intelligent 77x zoom feature, the Panasonic HC-V160 allows for telephoto videography that lets you record dynamic videos of subjects that will fill each frame.

    It's great for safari trips, sports matches, live concerts and other settings where what you want to shoot is too far or awkward to get close to.

    Sharp and clear

    An electronic image stabiliser allows the Panasonic HC-V160 Full HD Camcorder to capture footage clearly and with minimised blurring.

    Even if your grip is unstable, the camera is able to correct for slight hand shake, even if you're shooting at full zoom. Enjoy sharper, clearer images of those timeless memories.

    Record people shots, landscapes and more

    Use your Panasonic HC-V160EB-K to take memorable group shots or breathtaking outdoor views with its wide-angle 32.3 mm lens. You'll be able to get more people or more scenery into each frame, so even shooting in smaller spaces is easy.

    Even when you're recording up close, subjects will be comfortably accommodated, and the mic is able to detect even subtle sounds so that the atmosphere of each scene is preserved.

    Quality and control

    A 2.51 megapixel BSI MOS sensor gives the Panasonic HC-V160 improved sensitivity so that it can record clearer images in different situations, even those that are dimly lit.

    Apply creative filters to your work to give it a more unique look. Options include Miniature Effect, 8mm Movie, Silent Movie and Time Lapse Recording; all helping your footage match the character of each scene and its context.

    Get the most out of your camcorder

    We recommend using a UHS Speed Class 1 memory card as it offers the speed you need for capturing Full HD footage. Keep your new gear protected with a travel-friendly case or bag which will also hold your daily essentials.

    As somebody who is tech-illiterate, this is very simple and straightforward to use, and does exactly what I need. I also like its compact size and lightness, and find it easy to keep steady in my hand, even for an extended time.
    Have not yet been able to upload any vids to FB etc (keep getting told they're too large, even though they're not) but that's about the HD Writer LE30 programme that comes with it, and not the camcorder itself.
