The Best-ever Panasonic Image Quality. The 3MOS System Colorfully Renders 2D and 3D Images.
Even more from 3MOS
The 3MOS System has 7.59 million effective motion image pixels (2.53 megapixels x 3). This sensor separates the light received through the lens into the three primary colors -- red, green and blue, and processes each color independently, to offer images with significantly better color quality, detail and gradation than 1MOS sensor system.
Full HD Recording
1,080/50p 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 1,080/50p recording (full-HD 1,920 x 1,080, 50 progressive recording).
HYBRID O.I.S. will help end blurring
HYBRID O.I.S. is a optical/electrical image stabilization system. Further to blurring by vertical/horizontal wrist movements, it detects subtle blurring by vertical/horizontal entire arm movement and corrects them using a lens in the optical system and a sensor in electrical system. In electrical image stabilization, utilizing an unused area of the sensor when zooming, suppresses image degradation. Powerful correction realizes beautiful images even when shooting on the move or zooming.
Convert easily to 3D
Users need only to attach the optional 3D Conversion Lens (VW-CLT1) to the camcorder to record 3D images in AVCHD format firsthand. Incorporating Panasonic's 3MOS technology, users can easily create their own 3D movies in extreme reality. The AVCHD format enables playback using a Panasonic’s VIERA TV and Blu-ray DiscTM player/recorder. * 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.
The iA (Intelligent Auto), consists of six functions: Face Recognition, new HYBRID O.I.S., AF/AE Tracking, Intelligent Scene Selector, Face Detection and Intelligent Contrast Control, 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.

3 ccd's are the only way to get true high definition in the 3 primary colours. Single ccd cameras are technical fudges and are just not up to the job.
Specifically, Panasonic have a reputation in Broadcast Television hardware but NOT in video editors (more later).
The camera is, like all hand held cameras just too light and a tripod for any significant zoom operation is mandatory.
The set x12 can be changed to a more useful x30 and even a ridiculous x700 ! but this is a digital zoom and an astronomical mount is the only way to get a static picture at these zoom levels, even with the image stabilisation switched off.
The pictures are razor sharp. Ease of navigating the menus are very easy but will benefit from an hour playing with the manual.
Sound quality is excellent and the AGC operates without fuss or pumping. The zoom operation is as close to silent as you will find.
One fault, and it is, to my mind the second most significant gripe is Wind Noise.
Without an external headset (not available) you cannot hear the wind noise until you play the scene back and the inbuilt speaker simply does not have the output or the frequency response to let you hear the recorded wind noise.
It is frustrating.
What is required is a wind sock (as fitted to professional gun mics) that dissipate the wind in moving the light fibres rather that whistling over the mic sound holes like an organ pipe.
All inbuilt mics will do this and the supposed wind noise cancellation in this model does not seem to work though I am sure it does, but that is not good enough.Read more ›
The touchscreen is excellent, though it is better to use the little plastic stylus that comes with the camera rather than cover the screen in fingerprints; the menus are easy to understand and logical.
There are no anchor points on this camera for a strap which is a real oversight, so it is advisable to purchase a suitable case.
Playback is a doddle, and on our 1080 Sony 40" TV the quality is outstanding. It is as good HD as any HD TV programme. Providing you video'd indoors or outside on a still day the 2.Read more ›
Majority of hobbyist videographers shooting family/vacation/party videos never use anything other than a naked camera out of the box. Thus why pay the extras that are never used? This is why I chosen SD800, especially it had a great discount here at amazon.co.uk
So in a nutshell:
* The quality of video is very good (perfectly acceptable for commercial stock footage agencies)
* Image stabilization works great (much better than my on my old DV Sony camera)
* Manual controls are easily accessible - though manual focus isn't the most convenient with touch screen
* Optics is a good quality (bright having maximum aperture f1.5; and sharp even at full open aperture)
The results are simply stunning. Excellent results and easy to use. I would definitely recommend, if one is after a non-professinal, but still top quality Camcorder, at a reasnable price. x12 is excellent, x20 intelligent is very good, but needs a steady hand.
