Product Description

Capture Precious Moments in 4K video and photo from Panasonic’s New HC-VX980 camcorder. This compact camcorder records in 4K resolution giving you detailed, true to life scenes in any shooting situation. Capture impressive 4K photos of that special unmissable moment in 4K photo mode. High Speed and high precision autofocus technology makes 4K shooting easy for everyone.

The Panasonic HC-VX980 offers high quality Core Technologies including Clear Optics, Accurate Scenes and Crystal Engine 4K. The Crystal Engine 4K features a high speed, large scale integrated circuit to process the high volumes of 4K data quickly and accurately while reducing noise. Clear Optics are achieved by the remarkable LEICA Dicomer lens. This lens produces the subtle nuances and shading that LEICA lenses are renowned for, with minimised ghosting and flaring.

Wireless Multi Camera is another new feature this year. Enjoy a new kind of shooting style that lets you add even more emotion to your movies. Using Wi-Fi you can link to as many as three smartphones and simultaneously record up to two of them as sub windows. These sub images can be interchanged and their display positions can be switched. This lets you shoot from a variety of angles and view points, to capture a higher level of emotional impact.

With the New HDR (High Dynamic Range) Movie function you can enjoy even crisper and cleaner videos. It combines two images taken with different exposures to suppress blown highlights and blocked shadows.

With Panasonic’s HC-VX980 HYBRID O.I.S. + five axis correction one can thoroughly suppress blurring caused by unwanted shaking. This lets you capture crisp, clear images in 4K and other formats in virtually every shooting situation.
