Using an SDXC/SDHC/SD memory card for recording media, the compact SDR-S50 is ideal for daily use. Its superb resistance to external impact combines to give this versatile camcorder easy portability for anytime, anywhere video fun. Video clips recorded on an SDXC/SDHC/SD memory card can be played by simply inserting the card into the card slot of a Panasonic VIERA TV.This compact camcorder features a powerful 70x optical zoom lens with an enhanced optical 78x zoom function that uses the effective area of the CCD to further extend their zooming power at the wide-angle setting. This makes it possible to capture beautiful images of sweeping landscapes and pull in distant subjects for truly dynamic close-ups.Because hand-shake becomes increasingly noticeable with more powerful zooming, an optical image stabilizing function is essential for suppressing hand-shake and providing clear zoom shots without degradation. This is where advanced O.I.S. comes in. It detects and corrects hand-shake at a rate of 4,000 times per second, to provide stable images while zooming. Plus, the addition of an active mode produces clear, blur-resistant images even when shooting while walking.The 33mm wide-angle setting is especially convenient when shooting video indoors or in tight spaces. It makes it possible to shoot at a close distance from the subject while fitting both the subject and the surrounding area into the frame. This has the added benefit of allowing the voice of the subject to be clearly recorded, which is an important element in video recordings. The wide-angle setting captures beautiful images of wide landscapes and allows large groups of people to fit into the frame.The iA function includes an AF/AE tracking feature that tracks a moving subject to make sure that it continues to be recorded in optimal image quality. A intelligent contrast control, which automatically adjusts brightness to maintain the best possible contrast, has also been added to the five advanced functions from previous models, including face detection, advanced O.I.S., and intelligent scene selector, and each is activated as required by simply pressing the iA button to capture beautiful images under virtually all shooting situations.

  • Enhanced optical 78x zoom and advanced O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization)
    The enhanced optical 78x zoom has been added to the compact body of the easy-to-carry camcorder. By taking maximum advantage of the effective CCD area, the camera makes it easy to capture a wide range of dynamic images, from sweeping landscapes with the 33mm wide-angle scope to close-ups of distant subjects with the 78x zoom, without having to worry about image degradation. However, with long-distance zoom shots, even a tiny bit of hand-shake has a huge effect on picture quality. That's where advanced O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) comes in. It shifts a corrective lens as you shoot to help eliminate the effects of hand-shake, so you get clear, sharp shots even at high zoom levels. It's an essential feature for getting the most out of this incredible zoom lens.
  • 33mm wide angle and advanced O.I.S.
    The 33mm wide-angle setting on the standard series fits more people and more of the background into the frame than a conventional model. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room. It fits your subjects in even when you shoot from up close, and makes it possible to pick up even small sounds with the microphone.
  • AF/AE tracking
    AF/AE tracking optimizes the focus and exposure for a selected subject to ensure beautiful results. After you "lock on" to a subject at the center of the screen by pressing the AF/AE button, the camera follows it around, keeping it in sharp focus and properly exposed.
  • Long recording mode
    Long recording mode doubles the recording time of usual MPEG-2 recording modes. It uses the high-compression technology of the H.264/AVC format to compress data to a level that doubles the recording time while maintaining the same image quality as the MPEG-2 format. It's ideal for recording onto small-capacity SD cards. It also increases PC compatibility, and makes it easier to upload videos onto video sharing sites like YouTube.

Our employee incentive program went away December 31 and we had to use up the "points" we had accumulated before the end of January.
