    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # HC-V700K )


    Produces stunning images in all kinds of situations. New High Sensitivity Sensor

    Newly developed High Sensitivity Sensor portrays brightly lit scenes beautifully, and also captures dimly lit scenes with crisp, bright images and minimal noise. It produces stunning images in all kinds of situations, such as shooting indoors and at night. Because the pixels of this sensor are densely aligned, Intelligent Resolution Technology can be used when the Intelligent 46x Zoom exceeds the optical 21x zoom level, while maintaining the HD pixel count for high-powered zoom shots with incredible beauty.

    Intricate details from Intelligent Resolution Technology. Crystal Engine PRO

    The Crystal Engine PRO instantly processes the huge amount of data that goes into Full-HD images, and further enhances Full-HD quality. It produces smooth, high-resolution zoom shots even when the range exceeds the limit for optical zooming. Crystal Engine PRO clearly delineates even the tiniest details of your subject, with extremely natural beauty. In addition, its Noise Reduction (NR) technology has been completely redesigned. The low-frequency noise that occurs when recording in dim lighting has been further minimized. Compared to previous Panasonic models, noise has been reduced by approximately 40%.* And Intelligent Resolution Technology ensures sharp and crisp pictures, resulting in bright and beautifully colored motion images.

    * Compared with the conventional engine for HDC-SD90 and HDC-HM90

    Sharpens details and enhances smooth areas. Intelligent Resolution Technology

    The Intelligent Resolution Technology incorporated in the Crystal Engine PRO uses edge detection technology to confirm the edges of objects within the image, then emphasizes the edges for optimal clarity. For example, it brings crisp definition to patterns and the outlines of objects like flowers. Conversely, it reduces noise and enhances the natural smoothness of parts without edges, like the sky. The increased sharpness is especially effective for images with delicate details. This highly advanced technology maximizes the beauty of Full-HD images.

    * Intelligent Resolution Technology works only for digital zoom shots.

    Easily save important scenes in 3D. 3D Image Recording

    Simply mounting the optional 3D Conversion Lens to the V700 enables easy 3D shooting.* The 3D Conversion Lens is smaller than the one for last year's models, and its brightness has also been increased from F3.3 to F2.4.

    * The optional set of VW-CLT2 3D Conversion Lens and Step-up Ring is required for shooting 3D images.

    Crisp, clear images even for fast-moving subjects AVCHD Progressive Compliant 1080/60p Recording

    MPEG-4 files are widely used because they combine video and sound in the same file. As a result, the files can be quickly and easily saved onto a PC and then uploaded onto blogs or social networking sites to share with friends and family.

    Captures large groups, even when shooting from up close. 28mm Wide-Angle*

    The 28mm wide-angle* on the V700 fits more people and more of the background into the frame. 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. It also gives you entirely new ways to enjoy your camcorder, like taking self portraits or capturing sweeping landscapes without losing the sense of scale.

    Beautiful zoom shots of distant subjects. Intelligent 46x Zoom

    The V700 feature an Intelligent Zoom function that goes all the way up to 46x. 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.

    Powerful hand-shake compensation over the entire zoom range. HYBRID O.I.S. +

    HYBRID O.I.S. + uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring all the way from wide-angle shots to powerful zoom shots. It also achieves superb effects when shooting while walking. This lets you capture crisp, clear images, without blurring, in almost every shooting situation.

    Great for sudden photo opportunities! Saves energy too! Approx. 1-sec Quick Power-On

    This powerful function 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.

    Ideal for Mac and PC users. iFrame Mode

    The V700 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.

    Enjoy 3D images the easy way. 2D to 3D Conversion

    Images that were shot in 2D without using the 3D Conversion Lens can be easily transformed into 3D images with the 2D to 3D Conversion function. Simply connect the camcorder to a 3D-compatible TV with an HDMI cable. The 2D to 3D Conversion function then uses the image processing capability of the engine to convert 2D images into 3D. This is an easy, casual way to enjoy the excitement of 3D.
