Even with its light weight and slim design, the HX-DC1 is able to render images in breathtaking Full-HD (1920 × 1080). Files are recorded in the MPEG-4 format and are widely used because they combine video and sound in the same file for easy saving onto a PC and quick upload to the internet. * “Full-HD video with 1920 × 1080 pixels” in Panasonic Upright HD Camcorder refers to video recordings with 1920 pixels in the horizontal direction and 1080 pixels in the vertical direction.
