1/3.1-inch BSI Sensor for Brilliant Videos in Low Light
The Panasonic HC-PV100's advanced BSI Sensor captures brilliant, high-quality images in dim lighting conditions. That means you can record beautiful scenes and objects under a variety of conditions and in any situation, including indoor scenes and nightscapes, with low noise distortion.
Built-in LED Video Light for Reliable Shooting in Nighttime Scenes and Dark Places
The video light is extremely bright (300 lx at 1 meter), for reliable shooting in dimly lit places. A diffusion filter softens the light source, and a colour conversion filter converts the colour temperature.
Dual SD Card Slot - Relay Recording with Hot Swap
When the first card becomes full, the Panasonic HC-PV100GC automatically and seamlessly switches to the second card. And Hot Swap Recording lets the user exchange the card while shooting. This means that recorded cards can be exchanged one after another with blank cards for endless recording.*
*The file is divided every 10 hours.
The same data is recorded onto both cards, so you don't have to worry about losing the data.
Optical 20x Zoom
By driving each of four lens groups separately, the drive ranges are reduced, resulting in high image quality and high-powered zooming, with a compact camera body.
3.0-inch Slide-Retractable LCD with Touch Operation
This handy LCD serves as a high-definition, 460K-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.
2-Channel XLR Audio Input Terminals
The HC-PV100 comes with 2-channel XLR audio input terminals for external mic or line recording. It also has a +48 V phantom power supply. This enables the use of professional-spec, high-performance microphones for high-quality audio recording.
Illuminating LED Ring
The illuminating LED ring allows people to easily verify that recording is in progress, for smoother shooting. The user can turn the illumination on or off.
3 Manual Rings
Professional features include a focus ring, zoom ring, and iris ring on the lens barrel. This enables speedy and intuitive camera work.
5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. for Clear, Blurless Results
The Panasonic HC-PV100GC’s HYBRID O.I.S.+ uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring caused by unwanted shake – whether you are shooting with a wide angle or at high zoom. This lets you capture crisp, clear images in virtually every shooting situation.
