    POWER O.I.S. with Active Mode

    The V100M features an Intelligent Zoom function that goes all the way up to 42x. 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.

    Beautiful images even in dimly lit place.

    High Sensitivity Sensor

    The High Sensitivity Sensor on the V100M has a higher level of sensitivity than conventional sensors, to make dark scenes brighter and more beautiful. Ideal for shooting indoors, at parties, and in similar situations, it greatly increases your shooting opportunities.

    Captures large groups, even when shooting from up close.

    32.5mm Wide-Angle*

    The 32.5mm 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

    Beautiful still images, even when enlarged.

    Simultaneous Still Picture Recording at 2.1 Megapixels

    The V100M can capture 2.1-megapixel still images* while video shooting. Also, when playing back the videos you shot, you can cut out 2.1-megapixel* still images of any scene you want.

    * For images recorded with a 16:9 aspect ratio.

    Easy Operation & Usability

    A handy long-time battery for when you're on the move!

    Long Recording of Approximately 155 Minutes Per Charge*

    The V100M has achieved the low power consumption, allowing it to record continuously for up to 155 minutes.* This allows you to continue recording without worrying about the remaining battery power. It's especially convenient and reassuring when it's difficult to charge the battery, such as on a trip or in outdoor shooting.

    * 155 minutes of recording time with a fully charged battery (HA mode) in NTSC areas. 165 minutes in PAL areas.

    Makes optimal settings automatically - for motion images.

    iA (Intelligent Auto)

    This powerful function senses the shooting conditions and automatically makes the settings and activates functions that will deliver optimal results. 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.

    Great for sudden photo opportunities, saves energy too.

    0.6-Sec Quick Start*

    Use Quick Start mode. You simply flip open the LCD and you're ready to shoot in just 0.6 second. When Eco mode is also used, the power turns off whenever the camcorder has not been operated for 5 minutes. This reduces wasted power consumption, and enables a longer battery life.

    * Depending on the recording conditions, start time may be longer than 0.6 seconds.

    Ideal for Mac and PC users.

    iFrame Mode

    The V100/V100M lets you record videos in the iFrame. With iFrame, the video in your camera is the same format you'll edit, so it's fast to import and edit with compatible video editing software. iFrame is based on standards, so it works with a number of applications – such as iMovie.

    Easy time setting - Both on the destination and at home.

    World Time

    Handy for travellers, this function makes it easy to set the camcorder time when you cross time zones and again when you return home. Simply select your destination from the displayed map, and the camcorder is automatically set for that time zone.
