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.

Product details

With the Panasonic HC-V550EB-K Full HD Camcorder you'll be able to shoot gorgeous Full HD home videos to relive precious memories in full colour and detail.

Improved video camera hardware

Crystal Engine Pro drives this Panasonic HD camcorder, with an information processing speed that has been advanced to some 1.5 times the conventional speed.

The processor also incorporates a new noise reduction feature that makes for crisp, vibrantly coloured Full HD movies and still images.

The HC-V550EB-K is also fitted with a 1/5.8”-type BSI MOS sensor. Its effective sensitivity area has been increased to attain high image quality levels of 6.03M effective pixels. Even if you're in a dark place, you'll be able to execute gorgeously bright shots.

Stunning visuals and sound

Your videos will be shot in 1920 x 1080p Full HD quality thanks to this proprietary sensor technology, so they'll look great whether you play them back on a small or large screen. If you want to edit them on a computer after shooting, there's greater image depth that allows you to achieve more.

High quality sound recording is another hallmark of the Panasonic HC-V550EB-K Camcorder. It uses a special damping material in the space between the microphone and pop shield to suppress wind noise to less than a third of regular models.

The resulting clear sound will really add another dimension of excitement and quality to your movies.

Zoom in close

With intelligent 50x zoom and optical 20x zoom, the Panasonic HC-V550EB-K offers a wide shooting range that will really open up your photographic expression and creativity. Get closer to subjects and realise creative video and photo goals.

Extending from a 29.5 mm wide angle to the intelligent 50x range, this dynamic feature allows you to capture any subject from panoramic scenery to telephoto images.

Even if what you want to shoot is far off or unattainable, the camcorder helps you to realise excellent videos to wow your audience with.

Keeping things steady

The Panasonic HC-V550EB-K Video Camera is equipped with five-axis Hybrid O.I.S.+ (Optical Image Stabilisation). This effective system employs five-axis correction to fully contain blurring from wide-angle right through to powerful zoom shots.

You'll be able to shoot crisp, clear images free from annoying blur in most shooting situations. Make sure even those casually-captured events look professional and enticing with more precise focus. The camcorder lets you take control with manual focusing, or you can use autofocus.

Use the new Level Shot function for even more consistent results. The system automatically detects and corrects for tilting in captured images. Hybrid processing improves tilt tracking by 30% by using the basis of an acceleration sensor plus a gyro sensor for improved stability.

Even if you're in an unstable or awkward position (such as low or high angles), you'll notice how image balance improves.

Video effects

The Panasonic Image App can be downloaded to enable remote shooting. This great feature lets you use a smartphone or tablet as a live-view remote controller so that the camcorder can be operated from a distance.

Since the camera features built-in WiFi, you can view videos and photos stored in the device on a smartphone or tablet, and upload them to an SNS site to share what you've been shooting.

Featuring comprehensive shooting features and straight forward controls in a lightweight body, the cutting-edge Panasonic HC-V550EB-K Full HD Camcorder offers truly versatlile video recording whenever you need it.
