    Panasonic HC-X900M 1080p 3D Ready Camcorder - Black

    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # HC-X900MK )


    Next-Generation Imaging System: 3MOS System Pro

    The 3MOS System Pro has achieved a revolutionary leap forward in each of its elements - lens, sensor and engine. In the F1.5, 29.8mm wide-angle Leica Dicomar Lens, a Nano Surface Coating enhances image rendering in every shooting situation. The Advanced 3MOS Sensor employs a pixel shifting technology to achieve the equivalent of four times the pixel count of Full-HD. And the Crystal Engine Pro II processes this huge amount of pixels at high speed to produce a remarkable level of Full-HD picture quality. The 3MOS System Pro offers Panasonic's highest-ever image quality with breathtaking detail, vibrant colors, and minimal noise when shooting in dimly lit places. It will preserve your memories in all their natural beauty.

    Bright, High-Performance Lens: New 29.8mm Wide-Angle* F1.5 LEICA Dicomar Lens with Nano Surface Coating Technology

    New large-diameter F1.5 lens is mounted with a Nano Surface Coating applied to the front lens surface. These advanced lens systems suppress ghosts and flaring when shooting moving pictures, and let you record bright images with very little noise even in dark places. In addition, the 29.8mm wide-angle* is especially convenient for recording indoor or in tight spaces.

    * 35mm camera equivalent.

    Equivalent to Four Times the Pixel Count of Full-HD: Advanced 3MOS Sensor with Pixel Shift Technology

    The 3MOS Sensor splits the light information captured by the lens into the three primary colors - red, green and blue - and processes each color with its own individual sensor. This reduces light loss compared to the 1MOS sensor. Pixel Shift Technology, which took years to develop, provides a huge number of effective pixels for moving pictures – equivalent to four times the pixel count of Full-HD. This technology renders ultrafine images with excellent color reproduction and superb detail.

    Enhanced Resolution and Noise Reduction Effects: Crystal Engine Pro II

    The X900/X900M features the newly developed, ultra-high speed Crystal Engine Pro II. By using this engine to perform high-speed processing of the huge number of pixels – approximately equivalent to four times the pixel count of Full-HD – that are obtained with pixel shift technology, superb Full-HD image quality is achieved even in detailed image parts. The improved processing capability also dramatically reduces noise by 40%* compared with previous models, to record clear, stunningly beautiful images even in dim lighting. It also makes it possible to record highly detailed 3D images with Full-HD quality.**

    ** The optional VW-CLT2 3D Conversion Lens is required for shooting 3D images.

    Easily save important scenes in 3D. FULL HD 3D Recording with 3D Conversion Lens

    By simply mounting the VW-CLT2 3D Conversion Lens, you can record FULL HD 3D images* with the MVC (Multiview Video Coding) recording system of the AVCHD 3D format. Right-eye and left-eye images are both recorded and played in Full-HD quality, using the Frame Sequential Method to produce FULL HD 3D images. The 3D Conversion Lens is smaller than the one for last year's models, and its brightness has also been increased from F3.2 to F2.0. In addition, 1.5x zooming** is now possible, allowing a versatile range of 3D shooting. This brings all the lifelike ambience of the actual scene right into the living room. The X900/X900M is also equipped with a 3.5-inch wide LCD that allows 3D viewing without the need for special eyewear. Images taken in 3D can be checked on the spot.

    ** 1.5x digital zoom.

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

    1080/60p recording (Full-HD, 1,920 x 1,080, 60 (50) progressive recording) conveys about twice the information of 1080i (interlace) recording. Fast-moving subjects, such as in sports scenes, are smoothly recorded. The progressive recording of the X900/X900M fully complies with the AVCHD Progressive standard.

    Beautiful zoom shots of distant subjects. Intelligent 23x Zoom

    The X900/X900M feature an Intelligent Zoom function that goes all the way up to 23x. 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.

    Captures large groups, even when shooting from up close. 29.8mm Wide-Angle Lens*

    The 29.8mm wide-angle lens on the X900/X900M fit more people and more of the background into the frame than a conventional lens. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room.

    * 35mm camera equivalent

    Craft images with intuitive ease. Manual Ring *

    The manual ring gives you easy, fingertip control over the focus, zoom and exposure settings. You'll find using the ring a much more intuitive, comfortable, user-friendly process than accessing a menu screen. With the manual ring and manual operation, the X900/X900M is a pleasure to use and gives you the freedom to craft unusually expressive images.

    * HC-X900/X900M only.

    Capturing voices over a wide area for a more life-like sound. 5.1-Ch Surround Sound System (X900/X900M)

    The X900/X900M is equipped with five electret condenser microphones. The five electret condenser microphones help capture the sound source and distance accurately, so you get a more 3-dimensional effect. The Zoom Mic function improves 6 dB* by suppressing the noise coming from any direction other than the front of the camera. This enables the sound of the subject to be clearly captured. Low-frequency performance has also been improved for more natural sound recording. You get a realistic sound space that's a perfect match with the true-to-life HD images.

    Intuitive shooting, easy viewing 3.5" Wide 3D-Compatible LCD* with Intuitive Touch Operation

    The X900M feature a 1,152,000-dot 8.8-cm/3.5-inch wide 3D-compatible LCD. This makes it possible to shoot 3D images while checking 3D effects without having to use any special equipment. Offers intuitive touch operation. When shooting, you can use Touch Zoom to instantly zoom in and out by simply touching with a fingertip, and Touch Shutter to automatically focus when shooting still images by simply touching the subject on the screen. For playback, you can also change thumbnail pages by sliding a fingertip across the screen. You get smooth, intuitive operation and don't have to take your eyes off of the LCD screen.

    * HC-X900/X900M only.

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

    Switch the power on and the HD camcorders are in standby mode in approx. 1 second,* ready to shoot when you are. When the LCD is closed, the power automatically switches off. This fast startup and automatic shutdown also help reduce battery consumption.

    * Depending on the recording conditions, start time may be longer than 1 second.

    Ideal for Mac and PC users. iFrame Mode

    The X900/X900M 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.
