The Panasonic HC-X1000 is the world's first camcorder capable of recording 4K 60p/50p images onto an SD card. It includes a Leica Dicomar Lens is excellent, a new BSI Sensor, and the Crystal Engine Pro 4K. The camcoder uses a 4-drive lens system to ensure stable picture during handheld shooting and field recording. Contains triple manual rings (focus, zoom and iris), ND filter and two memory card slots. This gives you the option to record all content on one card and use the second one only for selected sequences, or use both cards simultaneously for extra data security.
The camera supports a wide range of recording formats and framerates, including 60p/50p/24p. Its 4K Ultra HD resolution produces stunning, lifelike images, and its compact body adds great mobility. It is an ideal camera for professionals who make documentaries. You can record video in AVCHD, MOV and MP4. Full HD recording uses ALL-Intra compression to achieve a maximum transmission speed of 200 Mb/s for outstanding image quality.
The Leica Dicomar lens renders crisp images while maintaining subtle nuances and shading that Leica lenses are renowned for. Increased BSI sensor readout speed makes it possible to handle large volume 4K data at a fast 60/50 fps. The high-speed Crystal Engine Pro 4K processes massive volumes of 4K data quickly and accurately while reducing noise.
Each of the four lens groups is driven separately, providing a 20x optical zoom in a highly compact body. The POWER O.I.S. system for 4K uses integrated gyro sensors that detect hand-shake up to 4000 times per second to enable the lens to compensate. This corrects slow hand-shake caused by breathing. Subjects stay sharp even in shots with 20x zoom and 4K quality. For Full HD there is a 5-axis stabiliser, HYBRID O.I.S. +, which uses 5-axis correction to suppress blurring all the way from wide-angle to zoom shots. This captures clear images in almost every situation.
ND filters are built into the lens to suppress the amount of incident light. The filters can be selected (1/4, 1/16, 1/64 or OFF) to match the shooting environment. This is useful when you want to shoot at a slow shutter speed in bright daylight. When opening the aperture, you can also attain high resolution and a shallow depth of field.
The camcorder can be controlled and monitored in real time from a distance by using the Panasonic Image App on an iOS or Android device. Thanks to NFC technology, you can connect the camera to smart devices with a single touch. QR codes are also provided for devices without NFC support.
