All about the new Panasonic HDC-HS700 High Definition camcordersStunning HD Images with 1080p Recording

Offering unparalleled picture quality, Panasonic's new HDC-HS700, HDC-TM700 and HDC-SD700 provide an option of 1080 progressive recording (2) for extremely beautiful images. 1080/50p recording (Full-HD 1920 x 1080, 50 progressive recording) in these high-end models produces richly expressive images, with maximum line resolution and smooth motion.

Full-HD 1920 x 1080p movies that are recorded with the HS700, TM700 or SD700 can be viewed in all their original beauty on the large screen of any VIERA TV with 1080p playback compatibility by simply connecting the camcorder to the VIERA via HDMI input. The highest standard resolution in today's HD camcorder market – these new additions will enable you to capture footage in spectacular detail.

Recording Format

The 700 series models differ by their recording format only. The hybrid-type HS700 records data onto both its large 240-GB HDD and an SDXC, SDHC, or SD Memory Card. The twin-memory TM700 records onto its 32-GB built-in memory and an SDXC, SDHC, or SD Memory Card. The SD700 offers SDXC, SDHC or SD Memory Card recording only – allowing a slimmer and more compact design. Users can select from the three camcorder types based on their preferred media.

Advanced 3MOS System

The newly developed, high-sensitivity 3MOS system provides effective motion image pixel count of 9.15 million (3,050,000 pixels x 3). This new triple image sensor separates the light received through the lens into the three primary colours - red, green and blue - and processes each colour independently. As a result, it offers beautiful images with significantly better colour quality, detail and gradation than the 1MOS sensor system. The large-diameter F1.5 lens, newly developed Crystal Engine Pro, and the high-sensitivity sensors have improved the light collection rate, increased sensitivity, and reduced noise by one-half to provide users with bright, low-noise recording even in dim lighting.
