The X920, V720 and V520 all feature the new Level Shot function, which automatically adjusts tilting images, in addition to 5-Axis Correction HYBRID O.I.S., which thoroughly suppresses blurring. The camcorders also offer Built-in Wi-Fi functions that allow live view control from a smartphone and enable Real Time Broadcasting to family and friends who live far away. These models allow users to shoot, play and share images more easily and conveniently. All of the new models also offer new levels of performance and function. Panasonic’s wide lineup of camcorders meets the diverse lifestyles of consumers. The cutting-edge technologies incorporated in Panasonic camcorders add to the fun of capturing, viewing, archiving and sharing images.
