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.
Great new touch-operations
The model features 3.5-inch LCDs and new touch-operations to realize much smoother shooting and playback than in previous models. The new functions start with "Touch Zoom," which allows the single-handed slow zooming and stable zooming while recording. The new functions also include "Touch Shutter," which automatically focuses and takes a still picture when the user touches the subject on the screen.* The user can also change thumbnail pages by sliding a fingertip across the screen. * Cannot be used in motion image recording.

One feature i would like though, is to have it be pal/ntsc switchable, or just 50p/60p switchable. This because 50p footage has the jitters when played back on pc screens, as most screens have a refreshrate of 60hz, hence optimal for 60p. The difference is very much noticeable. Plus, 60p is much more workable for internet use; youtube, vimeo etc. all use 30 fps which makes 50p look jerky. Hope they release some new firmware that makes this possible.
I really was amazed at the quality of the footage when recording in 1080p 50. It was even better than satellite broadcast TV! The sound, when played through my Sony surround sound system is fantastic. I could not hear any noise from the fan (even in silent rooms). However, in windy situations the sound quality is severely interfered with.
I have only recorded so far in full HD. I have yet to try the other modes but I can assume they are every bit as good as anything else on the market.
I am delighted with this purchase. Picture quality is amazing and sound quality, when there's no wind, is very, very good. I would highly recommend this camera to anyone. It's easy to use and gives amazing results. My friends and family were astonished by the picture and sound quality. The camera is also exceptional in low light filming. No noise whatsoever when recording in dim light. Colour is bright and vibrant. If you're looking for an easy to use camera that provides exceptional picture quality and great Dolby surround sound, look no further. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
The video is handheld. The camera has several stabilizers, so it feels just like You had a stedycam built in. The mode is automatic in this sample.
It has wievfinder as well as a 3,5" screen. The audio which You cannot hear at its full is 5.1 AC3 Dolby sound with a zoom microphone. You get the surround effect on Your home video. Built in 32 GB memory and option of copying to SDHC or SDXC cards.
The software is functional and can keep the original quality on the output file. Software is Windows only. It is iMovie compatible on a Mac except the 50fps 1080p option.
The downsides of the camcorder are that the photo quality is not as good as a dedicated still camera but I find that the stills from the 1080 50p footage are very good and actually better than the photo images. There is no waterproofing to speak of but it is no surprise for a camcorder of this price ( compared to a professional camcorder delivering this standard of image quality). The 50 p footage requires an up to date powerful computer to edit with but 50p will start to become normal and computers and software will be more readably available.
All said and done I really love this little camcorder as a tool for producing video works for broadcast and art gallery installations.I couldn't recommend it highly enough, well done Panasonic.
