There is a powerful sensor, internal memory, and a powerful zoom to spice your shooting experience. However, if you are keen to shoot 3D movies, do get a 3D lens as this accessory is not shipped with this model. Find out more about the utilities of this camcorder. Panasonic HC-X900 Review

Features

Powered by a highly sensitive image sensor of 1/4.1- inch diameter, the gizmo offers high precision images and videos. The MOS sensor * 3, offers a total pixel density of 9.15 megapixels – with each sensor providing 3.05 megapixels. The lens has a diameter of 34.1mm and the focal length offered is between 1.5 and 2.8. There is an optical zoom of 12x power and another digital zoom with 23x. The filter size of the camcorder is 49mm. Using the NTSC system, the premium camcorder has a 32GB internal memory – giving it an option to shoot non-stop for hours. There is an SD, SDHC, or SDXC memory slot. The high definition video format is around MPEG AVC or H.264. The 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen is a useful display option that also serves as a viewfinder. It is possible to swipe, tap, or pinch the touchscreen for various multi-gesture instructions. The gizmo supports Dolby Digital Creator’s Clear Sound 5.1 utility. Along with built-in microphone and speakers, the movie shoot is complete. The camcorder has an accessory shoe with a tripod mount of ¼ inch. There is a built-in flash to help the shooting. There is HDMI and USB terminals, headphone jack, microphone input jack, and power-up facility along the body of the camcorder. The powerful rechargeable lithium-ion 7.2VDC battery has a capacity of 1250mAh. It consumes 8.9W power. There is an AC adapter which is used to charge the battery once it is out of its power.

Price Value

Although the features of the camcorder and the video outputs look quite attractive, the price can really put you down. The camcorder is a little high, unreachable to many newbie videographers who will automatically look for another option. Moreover, the gizmo is not sold with a 3D lens – so, one has to purchase it before shooting a 3D movie clip. It can also perform well – for instance, remove noise in the images by 40 percent more than what the previous models would have done.

Video & Image Quality

The camcorder provides full HD with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 60 frames per second (fps). The Leica Dicomar lens is powerful enough to produce 35mm video that is similar to the specifications of usual films. The camera is made up of Lux technology that supports a standard illumination of 1400 lx. It also supports 1.6 for low light and scene mode, and 1 for color night view. These specifications allow ultra-fine image quality. The camcorder has an Image Stabilizer which is made of Hybrid IOS technology. It allows the videos to be steady even when moving pictures are shot or when the user is walking while shooting with the gizmo. It has the option to click images with faces that are smiling – through Smile Shutter utility. The camcorder can capture 16MP still images with ease. It is AVCHD 3D Ready – so, only a 3D lens must be attached to make it functional. It is also equipped with various imaging utilities, such as Intelligent Auto, Pre-Rec Function (that allows sudden movements to be shot automatically), Wide Viewing Angle, and Zebra Pattern for better videos.

Design

The beautiful camcorder is handy and elegantly cut to give a better grip to the user.  There is Manual Ring option that provides a control of various camera functions, such as focusing or zooming with the tip of the finger. The screen is strategically made to rest in the recess of the camcorder. The gizmo which measures (2.6 x 2.8 x 5.9) inches is slightly bulky at 425gram. Panasonic HC-X900 Review
