This high-end Panasonic HDC-HS900 Full HD camcorder equipped 220GB built-in HDD (hard disk drive) with an SD memory card slot, the advanced 3MOS System combines the high-sensitivity 3MOS Sensor, large-diameter F1.5 Leica Dicomar Lens, and Crystal Engine PRO give you detailed, beautiful images, a plethora of recording space, and the ability to shoot fun and unique movies in 3D with an optional lens.
HDC-HS900's advanced 3MOS System records beautifully natural images with powerful colors and detailed rendering in both bright and dark scenes.
The HS900 comes with a 35mm wide angle Leica Dicomar 12x optical zoom lens with F1.5-F2.8 f/stop , can zoom up to 20x using the Intelligent Zoom; and it features a manual ring for more control and creativity with your shooting. Another way in which the camera works to create clean video is with HYBRID O.I.S. (optical image stabilization). This O.I.S. keeps your shots steady when hand-holding the camera. It reduces the effects of hand-shake for an easy-to-view, clean shot.
The Crystal Engine PRO instantly processes the huge amount of data that goes into Full-HD images, and further enhances Full-HD quality. It produces smooth, high-resolution zoom shots even when the range exceeds the limit for optical zooming. Crystal Engine PRO clearly delineates even the tiniest details of your subject, with extremely natural beauty. In addition, its Noise Reduction (NR) technology has been completely redesigned. The low-frequency noise that occurs when recording in dim lighting has been further minimized. And Intelligent Resolution Technology ensures sharp and crisp pictures, resulting in bright and beautifully colored motion images
1,080/60p (50p in PAL TV Regions) recording at a 28-Mbps bit rate conveys about twice the information of 1,080i (interlace) recording to produce the ultimate in image quality, exceeding even conventional full-HD images. It minimizes afterimages and flickering caused by subject motion, and renders crisp, detailed images. Enjoy the superbly smooth images, intricate details and ultimate beauty of 1,080/60p (50p) recording.
The easy-to-view 8.8 cm/3.5" wide LCD screen allows intuitive fingertip touch-operation. When shooting, you can use Touch Zoom to instantly zoom in and out by simply touching your fingertips, and Touch Shutter to automatically focus when shooting still images by simply touching the subject on the screen. For playback, you can also change thumbnail pages by sliding a fingertip across the screen. You get smooth, intuitive operation and don't have to take your eyes off of the LCD screen.
Touch the LCD screen to indicate the subject, such as a person or an animal, that you want to focus on, and let AF/AE Tracking do the rest. The camera locks on the subject and follows it around, keeping it in sharp focus and properly exposed. It keeps tracking even if the subject turns to the side. This advanced function makes it easy to get a continually clear, beautiful shot of the subject in the scene you care most about.
The Face Recognition function recognizes the faces of registered subjects, and automatically optimizes the focus and exposure for those special people. It continues to track the subject as he or she moves anywhere within the LCD frame, making it ideal for video shooting. It is extremely useful for capturing someone's face in a group. Names can also be registered and displayed on the LCD while shooting. A total of six people can be registered, and the names of up to three people at a time can be displayed in the shooting frame.
The manual ring on HS900 gives you easy, fingertip control over the focus, zoom and exposure settings. You'll find using the ring a much more intuitive, comfortable, user-friendly process than accessing a menu screen. With the manual ring and manual operation, the TM900 is a pleasure to use and gives you the freedom to craft unusually expressive images.
Users need only to attach the optional 3D Conversion Lens (VW-CLT1) to the camcorder to record 3D images in AVCHD format firsthand. Incorporating Panasonic's 3MOS technology, users can easily create their own 3D movies in extreme reality.
HDC-HS900 is equipped with five electret condenser microphones. The center mic helps capture the sound source and distance accurately, so you get a more 3-dimensional effect. The Zoom Mic function improves noise-reducing performance and handles higher zooming power, allowing you to clearly capture target sounds. You get a realistic sound space that's a perfect match with the true-to-life HD images.
