Product Information

product description

Be Ready for 4K

The HC-X1000 is the world’s first camcorder capable of recording 4K 60p/50p images onto an SD card. It features a Leica Dicomar Lens, a new BSI Sensor, and the Crystal Engine Pro 4K. All in a compact, go-anywhere body.

High Performance in a Compact Body

In spite of its many professional functions, such as the Triple Manual Ring, ND Filter, and Dual SD Card Slot, this compact design — thanks to its 4-Drive Lens System — enables stable, handheld shooting. Ideal for field work where mobility is a must.

4K 60p/50p Video Recording

Incredible 4K image quality is achieved at 60p/50p. Using 60p/50p the video frame rate has double the information compared to 30p/25p, meaning smoother motion.

20x Zoom with 4-Drive Lens System

Compact lenses and a space-saving drive range are achieved by driving each of the four lens groups separately, to fit a 20x optical zoom in such a compact body. This clearly shows in professional applications, such as sports scenes, captured in 4K detail with the 20x optical zoom.

Versatile Recording Formats and Bit rates

Versatile recording formats and bit rates prepare the HC-X1000 for use in a wide range of applications. The AVCHD recording format is joined by MOV and MP4 for quick and easy editing. Full-HD recording employs ALL-Intra compression for a maximum bit rate of 200 Mbps. This brings outstanding quality to image production.

Blur-Free Images Anywhere, Anytime

POWER O. I.S. for 4K. The gyro sensors detect hand-shake up to 4,000 times/sec to enable the lens to compensate. This corrects slow hand-shake caused by breathing. Subjects stay sharp even with 20x zoom shots and 4K resolution. 5-Axis HYBRID O. I.S. + (Full-HD only) HYBRID O. I.S. + uses 5-axis correction to suppress blurring all the way from wide-angle to zoom shots. This captures clear images in almost every shooting situation.

Background Recording (Full-HD only)

One SD card can be set in Slot 2 to record continuously, and another SD card can be set in Slot 1 to record necessary scenes by turning REC on and off. This prevents important scenes from being missed when REC is turned off.

ND Filter

ND filters are built into the lens to suppress the amount of incident light. The filters can be selected 1/4, 1/16, 1/64, or OFF) to match the shooting environment. This is convenient, for example, when you want to shoot at a slow shutter speed in bright daylight. Also, when opening the aperture, you can attain high resolution and a shallow depth of field.

Wi-Fi Functions with NFC

Control and monitor the HC-X1000 in real time from a distance by using the Panasonic Image App on a smartphone or tablet device. A simple touch is all it takes to connect your HC-X1000 with your smart device thanks to the NFC standard. Plus QR codes are available for those who dont.
