The HC-VX1 4K Camcorder from Panasonic employs an f/1.8–f/4 24x Leica Dicomar zoom, and a back-illuminated 1/2.5" MOS sensor for optimal imaging, even at lower light levels. The HC-VX1 captures 4K video up to 30 fps, Full HD video at rates up to 1080p60, and up to 26MP still photos. A wireless Multi-Camera feature enables you to record up to three camera angles at once, using one or two smartphones as your additional cameras. The HC-VX1's 24x optical zoom lens features a 25 to 600mm 35mm-equivalent focal length, and a 32x Intelligent Zoom in 4K, expanding to 48x in HD. For steadier handheld shooting, the HC-VX1 features three optical stabilizer technologies, including Panasonic's Hybrid OIS+, Ball OIS, and Adaptive OIS.
An Active Contrast feature smooths out gradations in high-contrast scenes, and an HDR Movie mode provides a wider dynamic range for more lifelike reproductions. Additional HC-VX1 features include integrated Wi-Fi, a 3" touchscreen LCD display, SD/SDHC/SDXC recording, and multiple creative effects modes. The Panasonic HC-VX1 features an integrated 5.1-channel, wind-shielded zooming microphone for optimal audio capture.
