The Panasonic Lumix HC-V180 is a compact camcorder for beginner videographers. This camcorder has a BSI MOS sensor, meaning you can use it to shoot videos in the dark. With 50x optical zoom, you can record distant subjects, like kids playing elsewhere in the garden, without losing image quality. The Level Shot Function will detect when you're holding the camera at an angle,
and compensate automatically, so your horizons are always straight when you're shooting by hand.
