    4K 60p/50p Video Recording
    Using 60p/50p the video frame rate has double the information compared to 30p/25p, meaning smoother motion.

    Versatile Recording Formats and Bit Rates
    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.

    Leica Dicomar Lens
    In addition to rendering crisp images, this remarkable lens produces the subtle nuances and shading that Leica lenses are renowned for.

    1/2.3” BSI Sensor
    Increasing the readout speed of this sensor has made it possible to handle large-volume 4K data at a fast 60 fps/50 fps.

    Crystal Engine Pro 4K
    This high-speed LSI processes the massive volume of 4K data quickly and accurately while reducing noise.

    High Performance in a Compact Body
    In spite of its many professional functions, such as the Triple Manual Ring, ND Filter, and Dual SD Card Slot, this compact design — thanks to its 4-Drive Lens System — enables stable, handheld shooting.

    4K video editing
    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 stabilise your video. Cropping, zooming, panning, tilting, stabilising - new options in editing 4K footage.

    20x 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.

    POWER O.I.S. for 4K
    The gyro sensors detect hand-shake up to 4,000 times/sec to enable the lens to compensate. This corrects slow hand-shake caused by breathing. Subjects stay sharp even with 20x zoom shots and 4K resolution.

    5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. + (Full-HD only)
    HYBRID O.I.S. + uses 5-axis correction to suppress blurring all the way from wide-angle to zoom shots. This captures clear images in almost every shooting situation.

    High-Speed, High-Precision AF
    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.

    Background Recording (Full-HD only)
    One SD card can be set in Slot 2 to record continuously, and another SD card can be set in Slot 1 to record necessary scenes by turning REC on and off. This prevents important scenes from being missed when REC is turned off.

    Simultaneous Recording
    Two SD card slots allow to record data at the same time onto both SD cards, so you don’t have to worry about losing data.

    Auto-Switch Recording
    When the first card reaches full capacity, the system automatically and seamlessly switches to the second card.

    ND Filter
    ND filters are built into the lens to suppress the amount of incident light. The filters can be selected (1/4, 1/16, 1/64, or OFF) to match the shooting environment. This is convenient, for example, when you want to shoot at a slow shutter speed in bright daylight. Also, when opening the aperture, you can attain high resolution and a shallow depth of field.

    Histogram Display
    Displays a graph with brightness indicated on the horizontal axis and the number of pixels expressing that brightness level on the vertical axis. More precise exposure adjustment can be made by viewing the histogram.

    A striped pattern appears over excessively bright areas in the viewfinder and LCD, warning you to adjust lighting or exposure.

    Colour Bar Monitor
    The built-in colour bar monitor enables you to control the colour accuracy. For editing reference, the bar can be included in the recording.

    Picture Adjustment
    Picture adjustment is possible in many ways — contrast, chroma level, exposure, sharpness etc. This creates natural colouring and delicate nuances.

    Remote Shooting with Wi-Fi
    Control and monitor the HC-X1000 in real time from a distance by using the Panasonic Image App on a smartphone or tablet device.

    One-touch Connection
    A simple touch is all it takes to connect your HC-X1000 with your smart device thanks to the NFC standard.

    Triple Manual Rings
    In spite of the HC-X1000's compact body, features such as a focus ring, zoom ring, and iris ring on the lens barrel meet professional needs. This enables speedy and intuitive camera work.

    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.
