The Panasonic AG-HMC80 Pro AVCCAM HD Shoulder Mount PAL Camcorder is a professional-grade camcorder featuring AVCHD recording for full HD 1080/50i and 720/50p video. The camera features 1/4.1" type 3.05 megapixel progressive 3MOS sensors for high image resolution and quality. This attention to quality is further extended to the HD lens, featuring low-dispersion glass and aspherical elements to reduce aberrations in color and distortion. This lens is backed by 12x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom for a wide range of magnifications. An optical image stabilizer can also be employed, correcting camera shake that commonly occurs when shooting at long focal lengths or in low lighting situations. A dynamic range stretch (DRS) feature is also integrated into the system, providing a wider dynamic range when shooting in scenes with a great deal of contrast. By analyzing the contrast of individual pixels, the DRS helps to reduce blown highlights and blocked shadows resulting in images that appear wider ranged and full of depth.
Playback and monitoring is possible with this camera via the combination LCD monitor and EVF. This 2.7" screen converts from one to the other by flipping the viewfinder. The entire mechanism also tilts and slides for comfort and rotates 180° for use of the monitor from in front of the lens. Once clips have been recorded, you can simplify your playback process by using the LCD monitor thumbnail view, helping you to navigate through clips in any order you choose.
Other features inherent to this camera include advanced pro tuning functions for refining your exposure, the ability to take 10.6MP still images, HD focus assist with face detection, and a waveform monitor display that produces a histogram for analyzing exposure values. All of the data and files are conveniently recorded to SD memory cards, which is compatible with the HDMI output terminal for digital transferring of HD video and audio.
