Sorry, this item is now unavailable...



    The Panasonic HC-X1 Camcorder features a host of high-end functions and specifications to meet professional 4K video production needs. It's equipped with a newly designed compact lens featuring a wide 24mm angle and optical 20x zoom as well as an effective 1.0-type high-sensitivity MOS sensor. Its evolved Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.) and high-speed intelligent AF function are suitable for professional camera work.

    The HC-X1 supports 4K 24p, UHD 60p/50p, FHD 60p/50p multi-format recording and HD super slow-motion. Two SD memory card slots are provided to enable relay/simultaneous/backup recording for enhanced reliability, and also support UHD/FHD dual codec recording for a more efficient workflow. The HC-X1's control functions, such as the triple manual rings and user buttons, as well as interfaces, such as XLR input and wired remote terminal, are engineered to meet the needs of professional video recording.

    High-Sensitivity 1.0-type (inch) 4K Sensor
    An effective 1.0-type (inch) MOS sensor (approx. 9.46 megapixels in 4K 24p, approx. 8.79 megapixels in UHD/FHD) provides an appropriate depth of field and excellent balance between image quality and sensitivity. Images can also be recorded with a resolution of 4K (4096 x 2160)/24p, UHD(3840 x 2160)/60p/50p or FHD (1920 x 1080)/60p/50p.

    4-Drive Lens System
    The 4-Drive Lens System simultaneously and independently drives 4 lens groups (group 2, iris, group 3, group 4). The lens size and drive range for each of the 4 groups can be efficiently suppressed to optimize image quality, zoom power, and achieve compact body.

    World's First 20x optical 20x Zoom in a Camcorder with 1.0-type (inch) Sensor
    The optical 20x zoom lens covers the range from 24mm wide-angle to 480mm telescopic (35mm film equivalent at 4K 24p). The lens can zoom from wide-angle to telescopic very quickly. In FHD shooting modes, the Intelligent Zoom function increases the zooming capability to a maximum of approximately 30x, while maintaining high resolution. When it reaches to 20x optical zoom limit, it seamlessly switches to Intelligent Zoom.

    24mm at the Wide-Angle Setting
    The integrated lens boasts the industry's widest angle of 24mm at the wide-angle setting. It enables wide-angle shooting with little distortion, without the use of a wide conversion lens and also allows video recording/production in narrow spaces.

    Advanced Optical Image Stabilizer [4K/UHD/FHD]
    The correction area of the Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.) has been expanded to approximately 900% over the conventional area. This provides powerful correction even in unstable shooting situations, such as low-angle or high-angle shots. The ball OIS system reduces wear on the drive section, and greatly improves correction for small-amplitude hand-shake.

    5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.
    In HD shooting modes, by using hand-shake correction that combines the effects of both optical and electronic image stabilization, hand-shake in various directions, including the roll rotation, is detected and corrected.

    High-Speed, High-Precision Intelligent AF
    By moving the Micro Drive Focus Unit minutely and quickly, highly precise AF performance is also achieved when shooting in 4K or shooting with a shallow depth of field. Auto focus operation can be customized by adjusting the AF Speed, AF Sensitivity and AF Area Width. This function enables the AF to operate exactly as intended by the user in accordance with the subject type or application.

    Super-Slow Motion
    Slow-motion effect can be achieved by high-speed HD recording at 120 fps (59.94 Hz) or 100 fps (50 Hz).

    Infrared Shooting
    The IR Cut Filter can be turned ON/OFF (allocated on the User button). When the filter is turned off, commercially available IR lights can be used for shooting in dark places.

    Dual SD Memory Card Slots
    Two SD card slots are provided. This enables unlimited relay recording by simply changing SD cards, and also allows simultaneous recording and background recording for ensuring high recording reliability.

    Sliding 3.5-type (inch) Touch-Panel LCD
    The 3.5-type (inch) LCD monitor built into the handle section can be pulled out and turned 270 degrees in the vertical direction for use in high-angle, low-angle or selfie shots. The touch panel function can be used for menu setting and area functions.

    High-Resolution OLED EVF
    The viewfinder features a high-resolution OLED display (approximately 1,769,000 dots) for excellent colour reproduction.

    Wireless Remote Control from an iPad
    The AG ROP for iPad is available free of charge from the Apple App Store. It enables wireless remote control of the HC-X1, with installation of a wireless module (optional AJ-WM50/AJ-WM30). In addition to a multitude of control functions, such as camera settings, picture quality adjustment, REC start/stop and menu setting, the AG ROP allows control of the HC-X1's internal lens for remote operation of the Intelligent Zoom, zoom and focus. It also displays a thumbnail view and preview, so recorded clips can be checked on an iPad.
