A Care Plan protects your product if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

The Panasonic HC-V550CTEBK Full HD Camcorder with VW-CTR1 Pan Tilt Cradle offers powerful zoom and exceptional image quality for memorable home videos.

Remote pan and tilt cradle

This handy accessory attaches to your camera and gives you auto panning and tilting. The Auto Tracking Mode captures all the action so you don't have to, great for parties and baby monitoring.

You can enjoy complete control with remote shooting through your smartphone device. Make the camera rotate by controlling the CTR1 cradle from your smartphone. The facial recognition features means the cradle will work automatically to capture faces at a party while the motion sensor function lets you watch over pets when you're not home. Enjoy remote viewing and full control with the Panasonic Image App.

Highly responsive video camera


A new BSI MOS sensor increases the effective sensor area for an impressive effective 6.03 megapixels. Even when shooting in dim conditions, you can achieve bright, beautiful shots.

The Crystal Engine Pro+ advances the information processing speed of the HC-V550 to around 1.5 times the usual speed. Your Full HD movies will really benefit from enhanced noise reduction, rendering them crisp and vibrantly coloured.

Enjoy the high-res results granted by the 28 mm wide-angle zoom lens, allowing you to really express yourself, whatever you're capturing on video.

The camcorder is also capable of still picture recording up to a maximum resolution of 10 megapixels.

Closer than before

The HC-V550CTEBK Full HD Video Camera lets you achieve stunning close-ups of distant subjects with its 50x optical zoom and 150x digital zoom capabilities.

Achieve more compelling videos with this wide shooting range which extends from 29.5 mm wide-angle to intelligent 50x zooming. Shoot everything from panoramic scenery to telephoto images for more exciting personal videos on holiday, a day out or when you're generally out and about.

Steady does it

The Panasonic HC-V550 Camcorder helps to keep your images looking sharp. Level Shot functionality automatically picks up and corrects for tilting in images you've shot, and new hybrid processing enhances tilt tracking using an acceleration sensor to give you up to 30% more stable shooting.

Even if you're in an awkward or unsteady position, such as low or high-angle capture, the camcorder helps you get the best possible results.

This teams with 5-axis Hybrid OIS (Optical image Stabilisation) so that blurring from movement and hand-shake is fully counteracted. The feature works across the full zoom range for wonderfully clear videos in a variety of shooting conditions.

Video effects

You can assume creative control with the Panasonic HC-V550 and its great filter effects, including Miniature Effect, 8 mm Movie, Silent Movie and Time Lapse Recording. Capture impressive video recordings that suit the shooting situation.

iA (intelligent Auto) / iA Plus Mode is a powerful function that analyses shooting conditions, automatically activating and adjusting settings and functions for the best possible results. iA Plus Mode also lets you change exposure compensation and white balance with the touch of a button on the LCD monitor.

This easy-to-view 3.0" wide LCD screen permits operation with the touch of a fingertip, making for smooth intuitive operation that lets you keep your eyes on the display.

Multiple video camera uses

The camcorder's innate motion sensor and face recognition function facilitate automatic capture of multiple faces in crowded situations. Use the motion sensor to monitor pets when you're away from home, either directly over the camcorder, or using the remote control with the Panasonic Image App.

Highlight Playback is available directly after shooting over your smartphone or tablet, allowing you to share favourite scenes on SNS using easy drag and drop motions.

With Highlight Photo Collage you can build a highlight photo collage using the best scenes automatically selected from video.

A more connected camcorder

The Panasonic HC-V550CTEBK Full HD Camcorder has built-in WiFi and NFC to expand your connectivity options.

NFC allows you tap a compatible tablet or smartphone to the camera for an instant connection. If the technology isn't available, you'll still be able to use a QR code to quickly and easily establish WiFi settings.

Enjoy Real Time Broadcasting of key events via Ustream over WiFi. You'll be able to deliver live images to people around the world, and you can also send an e-mail to preregistered e-mail addresses signalling the start of broadcasting.

Remote camera operation

WiFi also lets you check on your baby in another room via smartphone or tablet, thanks to the Panasonic Image App. Push Notification sends an alert to the device if a voice sensor detects the baby awakening - you can even communicate with the child over the monitor.
     
Send videos and photos from inside the camera to a smartphone or tablet, or upload to an SNS site.  Keep an eye on your home and record footage in high-quality, even speaking to family members or pets using your smartphone or tablet.

With the Panasonic HC-V550CTEBK Full HD Camcorder with VW-CTR1 Pan Tilt Cradle, stunning movies and photos and a range of advanced functions are at your fingertips.
