Panasonic HDC-SD900 is the high-end Full HD Camcorder features advanced 3MOS System, lets you enjoy bright, low-noise recording even in dim lighting, HDC-SD900 have achieved the highest image quality in Panasonic history, while maximizing the potential of their 20x zoom with the Hybrid Optical and Electrical Image Stabilization System.
The HDC-SD900's high-sensitivity 3MOS system has achieved 11.49 million effective motion image pixels (3.83 megapixels x 3). This new image sensor offers beautiful images with significantly better color quality, detail and gradation than the 1MOS sensor system.
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. Compared to previous Panasonic models, noise has been reduced by approximately 45%. And Intelligent Resolution Technology ensures sharp and crisp pictures, resulting in bright and beautifully colored motion images.
SD900 use Leica Dicomar 12x optical zoom lense, 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.
With its transfer rate of 28 Mbps, 1080/60p (50p @ PAL) recording conveys about twice the information of 1080i (interlace) recording. Whereas interlacing requires two images to produce a complete picture, the progressive method records a single image as a complete picture.
The image-stabilizing effect is increased by pressing and holding the O.I.S. Lock indication on the LCD screen, which maximizes the blur detection sensitivity. This is great for when you want to zoom at a fixed angle, like for bird watching.
HDC-SD900 features 3.5-inch LCDs and new touch-operations to realize much smoother shooting and playback than in previous models. The new functions start with "Touch Zoom," which allows the single-handed slow zooming and stable zooming while recording. The new functions also include "Touch Shutter," which automatically focuses and takes a still picture when the user touches the subject on the screen.
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.
For easier sharing of your memories, the included software of SD900 makes it quick and easy to upload your videos to YouTube and Facebook.
