Panasonic HS700k HD camcorders use the progressive method to record twice as much image data as the interlace method.
Whereas interlacing requires two images to produce a complete picture, the progressive method records a single image as a complete picture.
Plus, the 60 Progressive Recording of the Panasonic HS700k HD camcorders produce 60 images per second.
This extremely dense image information creates intricate detail and silky smooth motion. Even when subjects move quickly, afterimages are minimized to create more natural images.
The progressive method is most effective when shooting detailed designs where more patterns tend to occur, or when capturing scenes during sports events where the subjects are intensely moving around.
Also, the recorded images are displayed clearly even when they are made into still images, so it is possible to preserve stunning photos when clipping them from videos.
A bright, high-performance lens.
Leica Dicomar Lens
Panasonic HD camcorders use Leica Dicomar lenses, which are renowned for their ability to render sharp images and excellent shading.
They also suppress ghosting, flare, and distortion at the image edges.
Even in strong sunlight, these superb lenses maintain high contrast and resolution.
A bright new F1.5-F2.8 lens with a 46mm filter diameter has been created for the Panasonic HS700k HD camcorders.
Efficient light collection allows the new lens to capture bright, clear images even in dim lighting or at high shutter speeds.
This high-end lens brings out all the beauty of Full-HD images. *Leica is a registered trademark of Leica Microsystem IR GmbH, and Dicomar is a registered trademark of Leica Camera AG.
Captures large groups, even when shooting from up close.
35mm Wide-Angle Lens*
The 35mm wide-angle lens on the Panasonic HS700k digital video cameras fits more people and more of the background into the frame than a conventional lens. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room.
18x Intelligent Zoom
The Panasonic HS700k digital video cameras features a 12x optical zoom and an Intelligent Zoom function that goes all the way up to 18x.
When using Intelligent Zoom, Intelligent Resolution Technology lets you shoot at high zoom rates while preserving image sharpness.
You get crisp images of highly detailed objects – without the blurry edges.
