High Definition 4K Videos

Capable of recording 4K video at up to 30fps, the Panasonic HC-VX1 Camcorder offers you incredible quality. 4K video retains crisp detail allowing you to select your ideal framing and use 4K cropping to create Full HD still photos edited right in the camera. You can also shoot up to 1080p videos in Full HD to optimise your storage while still capturing your memories in high resolution.

BSI MOS Sensor for Low Light Performance

Thanks to a backlit 1/2.5-inch BSI MOS sensor, you can comfortably shoot video or capture 26 megapixel photos in lowlight environments, like indoors or outside without compromising on detail. Working with the Leica Dicomar lens, the camcorder boosts brightness and reduces noise for clear imagery.

24x Optical Zoom

Control your composition with the sharp and bright f/1.8 Leica Dicomar lens. It features a 25mm wide angle to 600mm telephoto zoom range for amazing versatility. A 4 Drive Lens System provides 24x optical zoom and a 32x Intelligent Zoom in 4K or 48x when shooting Full HD. This lets you to get up close to the action, while staying safely out of the way.

Accurate Autofocus

Equipped with custom AF, the Panasonic Digital Video Camera gives you accurate and high-speed tracking. Capturing sharp details and minimising blur, all three AF functions capture fast-action with ease, great for sports. A Level Shot Function automatically adjusts the tilt of your camera for steady, horizon-level shooting.

5 Axis HYBRID Optical Image Stabilisation

Working across the zoom range, the 5 Axis HYBRID OIS Plus system reduces blurring while the Ball OIS corrects camera shake and reduces wear and tear on the drive to produce stable handheld videos. By adjusting the mechanics to shooting conditions and user preferences, both OIS systems are optimised using Adaptive OIS, giving you precision and control.

Active Contrast

Boasting a huge dynamic range, the HCVX1 automatically adjusts the light distribution to smooth out high contrast scenery. Thanks to this function, the dark to light gradation is equalised to produce a life-like photo finish with better detail even in the darker parts of your image.

Cinematic Camera Effects

The Panasonic HCVX1 4K Digital Video Camcorder features a range of cinematic effects such as Dolly Zoom and Slow Zoom, for more creative control over your footage. The 3-inch LCD Touchscreen is highly visible so you can easily check review your video live in-camera.
