SKU: Panasonic HC-MDH2 Camcorder


Product Description

4-point support is stable and it enables comfortable shooting. There is ample distance between LCD touch panel and eye position. Based on verification results, 200 mm is the most suitable distance. The position of the LCD monitor is almost the same as eye level and comfortable to look at. It is suitable for LCD-based shooting style.
5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S + thoroughly suppresses blurring all the way from wide-angle to powerful zoom shots. This lets you capture crisp, clear images in almost every shooting situation.
Level Shot Function automatically detects and corrects the tilting of captured images. This enables you to record horizontal images without tripod or even when shooting in an unstable position.

The wide shooting range expands the breadth of photographic expression, extending from 28mm wide angle to Intelligent 50x zooming. This makes it possible to capture everything from panoramic scenery to telephoto images for obtaining dynamic images of subjects at a distance.
