The Panasonic HDC-HS80 is an ultra-compact 120GB hard drive/ SD card memory camcorder with a powerful image stabilised 34x zoom lens. It features Intelligent Zoom technology that offers ultra-telephoto shooting that exceeds the magnification range of the optical zoom, up to a high-powered 42x. The HYBRID O.I.S. image stabilization system detects even subtle movement and corrects it optically in the lens and electronically in the sensor. The HDC-HS80's built-in microphone zooms in and out with the lens to adjust the ambient noise levels depending on the subject's distance. The Panasonic's iA (Intelligent Auto) mode consists of six functions: Face Recognition, new HYBRID O.I.S., AF/AE Tracking, Intelligent Scene Selector, Face Detection and Intelligent Contrast Control. The camcorder senses the shooting conditions and automatically makes the settings and activates functions that will deliver optimal results, helping ensure that you always get the best possible footage with the Panasonic HD-HS80.

Ultra-Compact Body HDD/SD Card Hybrid camcorder with Powerful 42x Intelligent Zoom and New HYBRID O.I.S.

The model covers a wide range of shooting situations from close distances to faraway subjects. Using Intelligent Zoom that employs super-high resolution technology and the Crystal Engine PRO, it offers ultra-telephoto Intelligent Zoom shooting to exceed the magnification range of the optical zoom, up to a high-powered 42x zoom. It also features a 33.7mm* wide-angle lens. to realize shooting at a close distance from the subject while fitting both the subject and the surrounding area into the frame.

HYBRID O.I.S. is a optical/electrical image stabilization system. Further to blurring by vertical/horizontal wrist movements, it detects subtle blurring by vertical/horizontal entire arm movement and corrects them using a lens in the optical system and a sensor in the electrical system. In electrical image stabilization, utilizing an unused area of the sensor when zooming suppresses image degradation. Powerful correction realizes beautiful images even when shooting on the move or zooming.

The evolved Zoom Mic links the microphone's action to the camera's action. When zooming in on a bird in the distance, for example, the microphones also zoom in on the bird in link with the lens zooming operation. The function also reduces the surrounding noise to about 1/3 (-10 dB)** that of conventional models and realizes recording the sounds with superb clarity. The Wind Noise Canceller automatically detects and suppresses only wind noise to ensure natural sounds.

The iA (Intelligent Auto), consists of six functions: Face Recognition, new HYBRID O.I.S., AF/AE Tracking, Intelligent Scene Selector, Face Detection and Intelligent Contrast Control. It senses the shooting conditions and automatically makes the settings and activates functions that will deliver optimal results. With both motion and still images, iA does the bothersome settings for you and makes it easy to capture beautiful, well-focused images. The functions included in iA may not be applied when conditions do not call for them.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.

Can I repay early? If so how?

No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.

What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?

Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.

What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?

Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
