Beautiful zoom shots of distant subjects.
Intelligent 50x Zoom
The V500/V500M feature an Intelligent Zoom function that goes all the way up
to 50x. When using Intelligent Zoom, Intelligent Resolution technology lets you shoot
at high zoom rates while preserving the image resolution. You get sharp images of
highly detailed objects – without the blurry edges.
Powerful hand-shake compensation over the entire zoom range.
HYBRID O.I.S. +
HYBRID O.I.S. + uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring all the way from wide-angle shots to powerful zoom shots. It also achieves superb effects when shooting while walking. This lets you capture crisp, clear images, without blurring, in almost every shooting situation.
Even more powerful hand-shake compensation.
O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) Lock
The image-stabilizing effect is increased by pressing and holding the O.I.S.
Lock indication on the LCD screen, which maximizes the blur detection sensitivity.
This is great for when you want to zoom at a fixed angle, like for bird watching.
Captures large groups, even when shooting from up close.
The 32.4mm wide-angle* setting fits more people and more of the background into the frame than conventional models. 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 mic. * 35mm camera equivalent
Stunning still images, even when enlarged.
Still Picture Recording
Still Picture Recording at 3 Megapixels
Still Picture Recording mode lets you shoot with a maximum resolution of 3 megapixels.* You can also simultaneously record still images and video at 3 megapixels.*
* For images recorded with a 16:9 aspect ratio.
Clearly catch target subject sounds.
New Zoom Mic and Wind Noise Canceller
The Zoom Mic function links the microphones to the lens action. When you zoom in on a subject, the microphones focus on the sound in that same direction. By suppressing the noise on both side of the camera, its performance improves 3 dB.** Compared with HDC-HS80/TM80/SD80
Wind Noise Canceller
The Wind Noise Canceller automatically detects and suppresses only wind noise. It lets you capture natural sounds with lifelike ambience even when shooting in windy conditions outdoors or by the sea.
Sharps focusing even up close.
You can shoot macro close-ups while maintaining a distance of 70cm from your subject. In addition, using the zoom at full magnification makes it much easier to capture extreme close-ups without your body or camera casting a shadow on the subject and while keeping the background in soft focus.
