The Panasonic HC-X1000 4K Ultra High Definition Camcorder is the world's first camcorder capable of recording 4K 60p/50p images onto an SD card. It supports various recording formats, like 4K/Cinema 4K/Full-HD, frame rates including 60p/50p/24p and a host of professional functions. Its 4K resolution produces stunning, lifelike images, and its compact body adds agile mobility. The camcorder is ideal for professionals shooting documentaries and events.

With four times the resolution of Full-HD, the HC-X1000 records in 4K (3,840 x 2,160) and Cinema 4K (4,096 x 2,160) formats. This delivers true-to-life images for a wide variety of shooting situations, in extremely high detail. 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.

This high-performance lens has passed the stringent inspection standards of Leica Camera AG for aspects such as resolution and contrast. In addition to rendering sharp, crisp images, it produces the distinctive nuances and subtle shading that Leica lenses are renowned for. Increasing the readout speed has made it possible to handle large-volume 4K data at a fast 60 fps/50 fps. This suppresses the rolling shutter distortion that often occurs when shooting moving subjects. This high-speed LSI processes the massive volume of 4K data quickly and accurately. A new noise reduction system achieves clear images with minimal noise even in darkness.

4K delivers a far more intense viewing experience than you have seen before. Its native resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels is four times larger than Full-HD, resulting in a much higher level of detail. Even if you export your footage filmed in 4K to Full-HD, the video files will have even better definition and crisper details than those filmed in Full-HD. Sometimes after filming a great scene we later wish we would have framed our shots a little differently. 4K allows you to crop your composition and choose the perfect frame. You can zoom up to 200 % while maintaining HD picture quality, turn stationary footage into a panning shot, tilt and level your footage and easily stabilize your video. Cropping, zooming, panning, tilting, stabilizing - new options in editing 4K footage.

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. 4K also offers more options in extracting still images from your footage. 4K has four times the resolution of Full-HD Video and allows sharp, detailed prints of single frames up to the size of A3. Filming in 4K means you can easily grab those impressive moments in your video footage that are hard to capture with traditional photography.

Full-HD video recording is processed by a 4K 8 megapixels sensor. Compared to the 2 megapixels sensor used on ordinary Full-HD camcorders, this renders high-quality images right down to the finest details, with minimal blurring. The HC-X1000 also meets cinematographer needs because its 4K video supports not only 4K (Ultra HD) resolution (3,840 x 2,160) for TV broadcasting, but also Cinema 4K resolution (4,096 x 2,160) for movie production.

  • Compact Body: The low-profile and lightweight unit with XLR terminals located at two different positions, maintains compactness even when mounted with external microphones.
  • 3.5" Slide-Retractable LCD with Touch Operation: This versatile LCD serves as a high-definition, 1,152K-dot monitor and menu-setting touch panel. When not in use, it slides into the front handle for extra mobility and safety. It also rotates 270 degrees vertically for easy high-angle, low-angle and self-interview shooting.
Operating ease is enhanced by a host of conveniences, including ergonomic design, covers to prevent operating errors while shooting, and a button layout that's designed for easy use.
  • Illuminating LED Ring: The illuminating LED ring allows people to verify more easily that recording is in progress, making the shooting smoother. The user can turn the illumination on or off.
  • Dual SD Card Slot: The user can set the SD card in Slot 2 to record continuously from the moment a recording event starts, and record only necessary scenes onto the SD card in Slot 1 by turning REC on and off. This eliminates the worry of not recording important scenes that take place while the REC switch is turned off.
  • Tiltable Viewfinder with Eyecup: The 1,226K-dot-equivalent colour viewfinder can be tilted for added convenience. The large eyecup fits either eye comfortably.
  • High-Speed, High-Precision AF Technology: Comfortable, higher-quality 4K recording is achieved by maintaining the AF drive frequency at 60 Hz/50 Hz to improve focus speed, stability and tracking performance.
  • 20x Optical 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.
  • Wi-Fi Functions with Near Field Communication (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. This will expand the possibilities of your recording in many ways.
  • POWER O.I.S. for 4K: The gyro sensors detect hand-shake up to 4,000 times/sec to enable the lens to compensate. It offers powerful correction for the slow hand-shake (low-frequency vibration) that is caused by breathing while zooming. This keeps your subject sharp and clear when shooting with the 20x zoom at 4K resolution.
  • 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. +: HYBRID O.I.S. + uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring all the way from wide-angle to powerful zoom shots. This lets you capture crisp, clear images, without blurring, in almost every hooting situation.
