The HDC-SD90 is an ultra-Compact Full HD camcorder with diverse shooting capabilities and optional 3D Recording.
Bring Faraway Subjects Close
The 28mm wide-angle is especially convenient for recording indoors or in tight spaces. It makes it possible to shoot at a close distance from the subject while fitting both the subject and the surrounding area into the frame. The Intelligent Zoom incorporates the Image Processing LSI “Crystal Engine PRO,” a super-high resolution technology to achieve ultra-telephoto 40x shooting beyond the optical zoom range of 26x. This brings faraway subjects right up close to capture dynamic images that fill the entire frame.
Ultimate Image Quality
1080/50p recording (Full-HD, 1,920 x 1,080, 50 progressive recording) at a 28-Mbps bit rate conveys about twice the information of 1,080i (interlace) recording to produce the ultimate in image quality, exceeding even conventional Full-HD images. It minimizes afterimages and flickering caused by subject motion, and renders crisp, detailed images. Enjoy the superbly smooth images, intricate details and ultimate beauty of 1080/50p recording.
Users need only to attach the optional 3D Conversion Lens (VW-CLT1) to the camcorder to record 3D images in AVCHD format. Incorporating Panasonic's 3MOS technology, users can easily create their own 3D movies in extreme reality. The AVCHD format enables playback using a Panasonic VIERA TV and Blu-ray DiscTM player/recorder. Please note that a TV that is capable of side-by-side method 3D playback, 3D Eyewear, and HDMI cable connection are required. Some VIERA 3DTV models may require a firmware update.
New HYBRID O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) guarantees beautiful images even when shooting on the move or zooming.
Impressive Image Stabilisation
HYBRID O.I.S. is an optical/electrical image stabilization system. Further to reducing blur caused by vertical or horizontal wrist movements, it detects subtle blurring caused by entire arm movement and corrects them using a lens in the optical system and a sensor in the electrical system. In electrical image stabilization, utilizing a normally unused area of the sensor when zooming further suppresses image degradation. This powerful correction technology realizes beautiful images even when shooting on the move or whilst zooming.
Great Shooting Functions
The iA (Intelligent Auto) setting, consists of six functions: Face Recognition, new HYBRID O.I.S., AF/AE Tracking, Intelligent Scene Selector, Face Detection and Intelligent Contrast Control. The camcorder 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.
