The Panasonic HC-V180K Full HD Camcorder makes it easy to capture your subjects in Full HD 1080p resolution, whether far away or close-up. It features a wide-angle lensWIDE-ANGLE LENSHas a short focal length, hence a field covering a wide angle, ideal for architectural, interior and landscape photography where the photographer may be unable to move further away from the scene to photograph it. Wide-angle lenses come in both fixed-focal length and zoom lens varieties. with a 35mm-equivalent focal lengthFOCAL LENGTHMeasured in mm, it is the distance from the focal point of a lens (its centre or curved mirror where light converges) to the plane of the image sensor (film) when an object is in focus. A shorter focal length lens sees a wider image and a longer focal length brings your subject closer. For example, a 15mm lens sees a very wide image and is perfect for landscape photography. Conversely, a 500mm lens sees a very narrow image, brings the subject much closer and is thus great for subjects that are far away, like a bird in a tree. With zoom lenses, its minimum and maximum focal lengths are indicated, for example, as 24-105mm. A zoom lens allows you to change the lens’ focal length, with shorter (wide-angle) and longer (telephoto) options, whereas a fixed focal length lens requires you to move back and forth to find the correct image composition. of 28mm to fit more of your subjects into the shot, and a large 50x optical and 90x intelligent zoom range to bring the action front-and-centre. For worry-free operation, the camcorder offers 5-axis image stabilization and a Level Shot function that combine to produce clear, level, and more stable looking handheld footage, even when zoomed in. A two-channel zoom microphone keeps pace with the zoom lensZOOM LENSAllows a camera to, unlike a fixed-focal length or prime lens, change smoothly from a long shot to a close-up or vice versa by varying the focal length. A true zoom lens, also called a parfocal lens, is one that maintains focus when its focal length changes. Due to more moving parts, zoom lenses often produce images of slightly lesser quality than their prime lens counterparts. However due to the inherent flexibility of being able to vary the focal length, they are extremely popular for photography where composition needs to be adapted quickly - such as at weddings, for example. to provide clearer audio capture.
