The countdown for Black Friday deals is already in full swing, with lots of early offers already starting to appear ahead of the big day next week. Amazon UK's Black Friday sale kick off in earnest this Friday, but it is getting warmed up with a series of one-day deals and lightning offers. But this deal on the Panasonic V260 camcorder is going to be hard to beat.
This Full HD video camera usually sells for £199, and only yesterday was £188 on Amazon UK. But now (for one day only) it has been reduced to just £158.
The Panasonic HC-V260 has a massive 50x optical zoom – so is ideal for subjects where you want to get in really close, or have to shoot from a distance. If you need to shoot videos of the kids playing sports, or of birds that you see as you travel, this Full HD camcorder will fill the frame that you will find impossible with your camera phone or your mirrorless camera. And there is an intelligent 90x zoom that will let you crop that bit further, should you need it. The wide-angle end of the lens gives you a respectable 28mm equivalent view - and you get 5-axis image stabilization across the range.
The camcorder records onto standard SD memory cards , and weighs just 211g. There is a 2.7in touch-sensitive LCD panel for framing and reviewing your footage, that swings out and rotates to angle the screen to the most convenient position.
This Full HD camcorder is in Amazon UK's one-day sale today, and is the best price we have seen on this model. The V260 boasts a 50x optical zoom, and a touch-sensitive swing-out LCD panel. Weighing just 211g, it is a great pocket video camera for action, wildlife, bird watching and for general family movies.
