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

Crystal Engine PRO
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
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
mounting the optional 3D Conversion Lens to the V700M 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.
How do humans perceive 3-dimensional images?
Because the left and right eyes are located at different positions on
the face, the left and right eyes perceive slightly different images.
The difference between the two images is called "visual disparity." The
brain processes these two images with visual disparity to reconstruct
spatial conditions, enabling us to see things with three-dimensional
Crisp, clear images even for fast-moving subjects
AVCHD Progressive Compliant 1080/60p Recording
recording (Full-HD, 1,920 x 1,080, 60 progressive recording) conveys
