Featuring a second camera attached to the edge of its articulated screen, the Panasonic HC-W570 HD Camcorder can capture two simultaneous streams of video and record them picture-in-picture. This way the main camera can be focused on your subject while the secondary camera records a self portrait. At the front of the camera is a 50x optical zoom lens whose zoom can be digitally extended to 90x. When shooting at the further end of the zoom range, the 5-axis stabilization can compensate for handheld vibration and reduce blur in your videos.

Twin Camera Operation

A rotatable sub-camera lets you take shots from two angles at once. You can capture the family and take a selfie in both telephoto and wide-angle shots. A backup function records a picture-in-picture image and a main camera image. The sub camera image is recorded into any one of various sub windows, and its display position can be changed with a simple touch of a button. Alternatively, using your smartphone's Wi-Fi, you can use your smartphone's camera instead of the sub-camera to shoot from any distance or angle you choose for a variety of Picture-in-Picture images.

Intelligent 90x Zoom / Optical 50x Zoom

Intelligent 90x Zoom/Optical 50x Zoom makes it easy to bring in subjects too far away to capture with conventional zoom functions.

Level Shot Function

Level Shot automatically detects and corrects tilting in images. It can be adjusted to three different levels-OFF, Normal or Strong-depending on shooting conditions. 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. From wide-angle to powerful zoom shots, HYBRID O.I.S. uses five-axis correction to suppress blurring.

10 Megapixel Still Picture Recording

Still Picture Recording mode lets you shoot photos with a maximum resolution of 10 megapixels (16:9 aspect ratio).

Back-Side Illuminated (BSI) Sensor

The BSI Sensor records bright, high-quality, low-noise images in a variety of situations, including indoor scenes and nightscapes.

Creative Control

Filter effects - Miniature Effect, 8mm Movie, Silent Movie and Time Lapse Recording - let you add creative looks to match the shooting situation.

iA (Intelligent Auto) / iA Plus Mode

iA senses shooting conditions to automatically adjust settings and activate functions for optimal results. This powerful mode also lets you adjust exposure compensation and white balance with a single button on the LCD.

Wi-Fi Functions

  • One-touch Connection - NFC lets you instantly connect a smartphone or tablet to the camcorder with just one touch. Even without an NFC phone, QR codes are provided to make Wi-Fi settings.

  • Remote Shooting / Remote View - The ""Panasonic Image App"" lets you use a smartphone or tablet as a real-time remote to control the camcorder from a distance. View photos and video directly from the camcorder on a smartphone or tablet, and upload to a SNS site.

  • Real-Time Broadcasting* - You can live-stream events on USTREAM as they are being recorded in Full-HD resolution
