4K Video Recording
Catch all the beauty that nature has to offer, with a compact camcorder, all in stunning 4K resolution. Capture impressive 4K stills of decisive moments and pro-quality films. It's easier than ever thanks to high-speed, high-precision auto-focus – a masterful 4K feat accomplished by Panasonic. With Smooth Zoom, you get smooth zooming without any zoom blur. It's also easy to zoom in on an off-centre subject without maneuvering the camera angle. Enjoy smooth and exact panning, by simply selecting the start and end points. You can choose a person to be tracked from a video, and the camcorder automatically keeps the object in the cropped area. Even after shooting, you can compensate for shaking thanks to automatic adjustment of the cropping position. The result is more stable, clear footage.
Capture moments under any conditions and get the quality results you want. The Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) lets you easily shoot in bright daylight, while contributing to proper viewing. The slide and tilt mechanism gives you the flexibility to shoot from various positions, and the eyecup is detachable to comfortably fit either eye.
Cinema Like Effects
While shooting with Slow & Quick Video, you can combine slow and quick motion for active scenes to achieve pro-like effects. Normally difficult to accomplish manually, slow zooming is easy with Slow Zoom, which lets you express emotional shifts in your subjects. Dolly Zoom zooms in on the background only while maintaining the subject's size to express feelings such as confusion, distress or surprise. With smooth Slow Motion Video, you can turn everyday scenes into works of art.
High-Quality Core Technologies
In addition to rendering crisp images, the remarkable LEICA Dicomar lens produces the subtle nuances and shading that LEICA lenses are renowned for, with minimized ghosting and flaring. By increasing the read-out speed of the recording, the advanced BSI Sensor with approx. 8M effective pixels suppresses distortion to give an accurate rendering of the scene. The Crystal Engine 4K features a high-speed, large-scale integrated circuit to process the huge volume of 4K data quickly and accurately while reducing noise.
Twin Camera Recording
This compact camcorder gives you two must-have, fun features for more unique footage. With the built-in Twin Camera, you can take shots from two angles at the same time. Catch the family and a selfie simultaneously, or both tele and wide-angle shots at once. With Wireless Multi Camera, you can link to as many as three smartphones and record up to two of them as sub-windows. So you can shoot from a variety of angles to capture all the excitement in a unique way.
HDR Movie Function
Enjoy crisper, clearer videos thanks to the HDR Movie function. It combines two images taken with different exposures to suppress blown highlights and blocked shadows. Even in difficult shooting situations, such as backlighting, you can easily capture natural videos with excellent gradation. A dedicated HDR button enables quick mode changes when necessary.
