An effective 1.0-type (inch) sensor (approx. 9.46 megapixels at 4K24p and 8.79 megapixels at UHD, FHD) is balanced with depth of field, picture quality, and sensitivity. This enables multi-format 4K24p, UHD 60p/50p and FHD 60p/50p recording.
In addition to the industry’s widest 24mm* wide angle, models with the 1.0-type sensor feature the world’s first** optical 20x zoom. Using a 4-Drive Lens System to drive each of four lens groups achieves both the optical 20x zoom and a compact body. * 35mm equivalent. At 4K24p (aspect ratio 17:9). 25.4mm at UHD/FHD (aspect ratio 16:9). ** World’s first camcorder with an integrated lens and a sensor larger than 1.0-type (inch). (As of July 2016)
In spite of its many professional functions, such as the Triple Manual Ring, ND Filter, XLR Terminals, and Dual SD Card Slot, this compact design enables stable, handheld shooting. Ideal for field work where mobility is a must.
For critical 4K focusing, high-speed, precise, and stable AF performance is achieved by a Micro Drive Focus Unit. AF settings can also be customised to adjust speed, tracking sensitivity, and area width. This matches the user’s intended AF operation to the subject and application.
The correction area was expanded to 900%* of the conventional area to strongly correct low- and high-angle shots (compared with Panasonic’s AG-AC160). In FHD mode, a 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. + that adds electronic image stabilization to optical image stabilization detects and corrects 5 axes, including the roll rotation. * Except 4K 24p mode.
