Panasonic HC-W850 Digital HD Camcorder
On the surface, this camera has all the makings of a pretty standard HD camcorder: a 6 MP sensor, 20x optical zoom and full 1080p HD video. But this camera also features image stabilization and an infrared night mode along with Built-in WiFi and NFC (near field communication) for sharing images and video through social media or stream live online. Using the Panasonic Imaging App, users can program their camera to serve as a baby monitor which alerts parents when their baby starts crying or a voice is detected.
The real innovation with this camera comes with the twin lens system. A second, slightly lower resolution image can be recorded off of a small camera mounted on the LCD screen and the unit can be swiveled 270 degrees making it perfect for capturing a selfie or a second angle. While many of these gadgets and features might be overkill for some, the W850 will appeal to those looking for a camera which captures solid video and has tools for almost every shooting situation.
