Active HD Camcorder HX-DC2 - A Stylish, Easy-to-Handle Full-HD Camcorder for Active Use

You can shoot motion images with a maximum 15x Intelligent Zoom and no image quality degradation. The E.I.S.(Electrical Image Stabilizer) also gives you beautiful zoom shots without blurring. * When using the 15x Zoom, switching is required by pressing the Double Range Zoom button. When the Active E.I.S. is turned on, the zoom is 12x. When shooting photos, the maximum zoom is 5x.

You can catch those special moments in 14-megapixel high-resolution still pictures. Depending on the situation, you can shoot high-quality photos or videos -- whichever you want.

HDR (Back Light Compensation) gives three images taken at different exposures to combine to one optimal still image while suppressing blown highlights and blocked shadows. HDR (Paint) process gives still images an artistic, painting-like effect.

It enables dynamic 360°/180° panorama shooting, just swing the camera up, down, left or right. And you can take vertical or horizontal images easily.

Ten consecutive images at 3-megapixel resolution are fired off at 1-second intervals for a total of 40 continuous images in about 4 seconds. This helps to catch fleeting photo opportunities in fast-moving situations like sports.

 Smart little Camera

| | See all thirdrepublic's reviews (1)

This camera is great if you want a small pocket sized camera to take around with you.
The image quality is good and the colours are balanced though the still images and panoramic images are lacking.

See my video for a film shot from this camera;
