The HC-X900M High Definition Camcorder is a top-of-the-line HD camcorder from Panasonic. This camera sports a long list of desirable features that include: 1920 x 1080/60p recording, clear 5.1-channel surround sound recording with Wind Noise cancelling function, 32GB of built-in memory, the ability to record in 3D (with optional 3D lens), and a 3-sensor 3MOS sensor system. So, you've got the capability to produce extravagant, detailed, beautiful images under almost any circumstances.

FEATURES:
  • FULL HD 3D Recording with 3D Conversion Lens - By simply mounting the VW-CLT2 3D Conversion Lens, you can record FULL HD 3D images with the MVC (Multiview Video Coding) recording system of the AVCHD 3D format. Right-eye and left-eye images are both recorded and played in Full-HD quality, using the Frame Sequential Method to produce FULL HD 3D images. The 3D Conversion Lens is smaller than the one for last year's models, and its brightness has also been increased from F3.2 to F2.0. In addition, 1.5x zooming is now possible, allowing a versatile range of 3D shooting. This brings all the lifelike ambience of the actual scene right into the living room. The X900/X900M is also equipped with a 3.5-inch wide LCD that allows 3D viewing without the need for special eyewear. Images taken in 3D can be checked on the spot.
  • AVCHD Progressive Compliant 1080/60p (50p) Recording - 1080/60p (50p) recording (Full-HD, 1,920 x 1,080, 60 (50) progressive recording) conveys about twice the information of 1080i (interlace) recording. Fast-moving subjects, such as in sports scenes, are smoothly recorded. The progressive recording of the X900/X900M/X800 fully complies with the AVCHD Progressive standard.
  • HYBRID O.I.S. + - HYBRID O.I.S. + uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring all the way from wide-angle shots to powerful zoom shots. It also achieves superb effects when shooting while walking. This lets you capture crisp, clear images, without blurring, in almost every shooting situation.
  • O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) Lock - The image-stabilizing effect is increased by pressing and holding the O.I.S. Lock indication on the LCD screen, which maximizes the blur detection sensitivity. This is great for when you want to zoom at a fixed angle, like for bird watching.
  • 29.8mm Wide-Angle Lens - The 29.8mm wide-angle lens on the X900/X900M/X800 fit more people and more of the background into the frame than a conventional lens. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room.
  • Manual Ring - The manual ring gives you easy, fingertip control over the focus, zoom and exposure settings. You'll find using the ring a much more intuitive, comfortable, user-friendly process than accessing a menu screen. With the manual ring and manual operation, the X900/X900M is a pleasure to use and gives you the freedom to craft unusually expressive images.
  • Time Lapse Recording - The time lapse function uses longer frame intervals than standard shooting. You can use this function to capture shortened or condensed footage of events that actually take place over a much longer time period. For example, time lapse recording is ideal for shooting a flower in the process of blooming, or a long, slow sunset. With time lapse recording, you have an interesting new video technique to explore.
  • 5.1-Ch Surround Sound System (X900/X900M) - The X900/X900M is equipped with five electret condenser microphones. The five electret condenser microphones help capture the sound source and distance accurately, so you get a more 3-dimensional effect. The Zoom Mic function improves 6 dB* by suppressing the noise coming from any direction other than the front of the camera. This enables the sound of the subject to be clearly captured. Low-frequency performance has also been improved for more natural sound recording. You get a realistic sound space that's a perfect match with the true-to-life HD images.
  • Tele-Macro - You can shoot macro close-ups while maintaining a distance of 95cm from your subject. In addition, using the zoom at full magnification makes it much easier to capture extreme close-ups without your body or camera casting a shadow on the subject and while keeping the background in soft focus.
  • 3.5" Wide 3D-Compatible LCD with Intuitive Touch Operation - The X900/X900M feature a 1,152,000-dot 8.8-cm/3.5-inch wide 3D-compatible LCD. This makes it possible to shoot 3D images while checking 3D effects without having to use any special equipment. The X800 has a 7.5-cm/3.0-inch wide LCD. Both models offer intuitive touch operation. When shooting, you can use Touch Zoom to instantly zoom in and out by simply touching with a fingertip, and Touch Shutter to automatically focus when shooting still images by simply touching the subject on the screen. For playback, you can also change thumbnail pages by sliding a fingertip across the screen. You get smooth, intuitive operation and don't have to take your eyes off of the LCD screen.
  • 0.24" Electronic Viewfinder and Interface - This 263,424-dot equivalent / 0.24-inch viewfinder is easy to use and convenient for focusing and other adjustments. You can enjoy more professional shooting with handy functions.
  • iA (Intelligent Auto) - This powerful function 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.
  • Approx. 1-sec Quick Power-On - Switch the power on and the HD camcorders are in standby mode in approx. 1 second, ready to shoot when you are. When the LCD is closed, the power automatically switches off. This fast startup and automatic shutdown also help reduce battery consumption.
  • On-Screen Assist - Ideal for making fine brightness adjustments that are difficult to see in the LCD. A handy guide for correcting the exposure is shown right in the monitor.
  • iFrame Mode - The X900/X900M/X800 lets you record videos in the iFrame. With iFrame, the video in your camera is the same format you'll edit, so it's fast to import and edit with compatible video editing software. iFrame is based on standards, so it works with a number of applications – such as iMovie.
  • Focus Assist - This function shows which subjects are in-focus by displaying their outlines in blue. You can easily check the focus on LCD when manually focusing, to ensure consistently clear, sharp images.
  • Composition Guide Lines - With wide LCD monitors, it's hard to keep images perfectly level. The X900/X900MX800 solves this by displaying horizontal and vertical Composition Guide Lines that make it easy to keep the subject straight and level.
  • Auto Lens Cover - When the power is turned on, the lens cover automatically opens. When the power goes off, the lens cover closes. You don't have to keep removing and replacing a lens cap - or worry about losing it.
  • World Time - The displayed map lets you easily set the time for the location you want. Setting the time is as easy as selecting a city from the displayed map. The World Time function lets you set the time for two cities, home and destination. You don't have to figure out the time difference at your destination, and it's easy when you get home.
  • Advanced Highlight Playback - Select the days of the recordings you want to see, and this innovative function automatically selects the most exciting scenes, arranges them, plays them with music, and save them, or ones that the user has personally selected, according to a set time interval. It decides how exciting a scene is, based on zooming, panning, and scene changes, and whether there are faces. The X900/X900M/X800 has both advanced with the addition of playback effects that include slow motion, still image fading, and flash playback. Four image effect modes* – natural, pop, dynamic and classical – have also been added. Set different effects based on the mood of your images, and enjoy memorable scenes just the way you remember them when shooting. The Face Highlight Playback mode places priority on selecting the faces of subjects who are registered in the Face Recognition function, for quick playback of the scenes where they are clearly recorded, together with music.
  • Face Highlight, Highlight and Time Frame Index - The index function has been enhanced with the addition of a feature that divides each recorded scene into a number of smaller scenes, and displays thumbnails for each. This makes it much easier to find a particular part of a scene without having to fast-forward.
  • Easy Connecting, Easy Viewing - Just connect your HD camcorder to an HDTV and get ready for an incredible high-definition video show. If your TV is HDMI compatible, a single HDMI mini cable is all you need. When using a video component cable, you need a separate audio cable.
  • Archiving and Playback - The HD camcorders have a USB Host function that lets you connect directly to a DVD burner via a USB cable. Then just press a button and you can copy the moving images you recorded from the SD card or Built-in Memory to a DVD disc.
  • Editing, Archiving and YouTube or Facebook Uploading - HD Writer AE 4.1 software, included with the camcorder, makes it easy to play or edit videos on your PC and have more fun when the shooting's done. Also, the ordinarily time-consuming task of converting and archiving data from 60p* to AVCHD or MPEG-2 format can be easily done at high speed by connecting the 3MOS camcorder to a PC with a USB cable and using the camcorder's Conversion Assist function.
