Advanced O.I.S. and Hybrid O.I.S.

Bring your video productions into the world of 4K with the Panasonic HC-X1 4K Ultra HD Professional Camcorder. Featuring a large 1"-type 4K sensor, the HC-X1 is capable of recording video in DCI (4096x2160) as well as UHD (3840x2160) 4K resolutions. Whether producing event or ENG-style videos, or even a short film, the 20x optical zoom power of the lens starts from a wide 24mm equivalent FOV for shooting in tight spots or grabbing impressive establishing shots, and extends all the way out to 480mm equivalent FOV for getting in tight on far-away subjects. At longer focal lengths, the 1"-type sensor facilitates background blur reminiscent of larger professional cinema cameras, enabling dramatic compositions without sacrificing versatility found in a compact, handheld form-factor.

While 4K video formats may seem daunting, the HC-X1 manages to record them onto convenient SD cards (U3 rated or faster cards are required for video bit-rates above 100 Mbps) which are both small and robust. 2 card slots are provided for increased flexibility. You can record to both cards simultaneously, either for backing up or recording high and low bit-rate files, or enable relay recording to capture a single file that spans multiple cards for longer recording times.

Ergonomically, the HC-X1 features a familiar handheld camcorder body with plenty of customizable control buttons for quickly accessing essential functions. When handheld, the sharp OLED EVF is within easy reach. Alternatively, a 3.5 in touchscreen is offered for monitoring and menu control. Waveforms and scopes can be displayed to aid in exposure control. Atop the handgrip sits a large zoom rocker for precise zoom control. Lens functions can also be controlled manually using the three lens rings, one for focus, one for zoom, and one for iris. A battery for powering the HC-X1 is included, along with a charger, and a power supply for fixed-position operating.

High-Resolution Video Recording

The HC-X1 4K camcorder supports DCI 4K at 24p and UHD up to 60p. 1080p and 720p HD resolutions are also supported up to 60p in addition to super slow-motion.

Advanced O.I.S.

With an expanded correction area, Advanced O.I.S. effectively reduces vibrations from hand-shake jitters all the way up to unstable shooting situations.

5-Axis Hybrid O.I.S.

In HD shooting modes, activate the 5-Axis Hybrid O.I.S. for further stabilization. Combining the optical stabilization with electronic stabilization, detection and correction of vibration along 5 axes (pan, tilt, roll, horizontal, and vertical) becomes possible.

4K 1"-Type MOS Sensor

Balancing flexibility and creative depth-of-field control, the 4K 1"-Type MOS Sensor is ideal for run-and-gun filmmaking as well as ENG-style productions.

4-Drive Lens System

The HC-X1 comes complete with a 4-Drive Lens System that simultaneously and independently drives 4 element groups inside the lens. Lens size and drive range for each of the 4 groups can be efficiently suppressed to optimize image quality and zoom power.

Leica Dicomar 4K Lens

Designed specifically for the HC-X1, this lens maintains sharp images throughout its 20x optical zoom range. The 24mm wide-angle setting on the lens (25.4mm equivalent in 16:9 aspect-ratio modes) offers a quick solution for shooting in tight spaces without requiring a bulky adapter that might affect image quality.

20x Optical Zoom

The optical 20X zoom lens covers the range from 24mm wide-angle to 480mm telephoto (35mm film equivalent at 4K 24p). And the lens can quickly cover the entire zoom range, so you won't miss your shots.
