City Pulse

By Kim Taylor

Whether you want to record your summer vacation, a multi-generational family reunion, your baby’s first sweet smile, or shoot your own riveting film this summer, Panasonic has the right camera for the job. The HC-V720 camcorder model shown above is 3D-ready with built-in wifi, it’s lightweight with a high sensitivity sensor, and it features noise reduction performance (always important in NYC). It’s flexible enough to record beautiful, high quality images in both dim and bright light settings — and it offers a broad shooting range for panoramic cityscape or sweeping country shots as well as perfect shots of people or objects at a distance. This is a fantastic all-purpose camera at an affordable mid-price point somewhere between professional and beginner for capturing your enduring digital creations and life events. It’s also an ideal gift.

The Panasonic MPEG-4 Network Camera, featured above, allows you to keep an eye on your residence while you’re vacationing this summer or on your summer place while you’re in the city (or vice-versa). With full screen monitoring, it records up to 30 frames per second, offers convenient monitoring from your cell phone, has an easy plug and play installation, and has a built-in microphone and thermal sensor.

Happy 4th! Of July! Record those fireworks for posterity.
