Panasonic has added two new Full HD camcorders with 3MOS sensor technology that claims to processes red, green and blue independently. The company claims that this will provide users with vivid colour, detail and gradation.

Both the Panasonic HDC-HS700 and HDC-SD700 record in 1080/50p (Full-HD, 1920 x 1080, 50 frames per second progressive recording), feature an F.1.5 Leica lens that provides superb imaging, and has 12x optical zoom. The 3MOS Models employ Intelligent Resolution Technology and are equipped with Crystal Engine Pro, which claims to record extremely clear, crisp motion images.
Panasonic Australia’s Product Marketing Manager for Camcorder/Media/Accessories, Aurelie Hayon said, “This introduction of these two new models in our Camcorder range highlights our dedication to the Camcorder market in Australia. The 3MOS sensor system allows the amateur videographer to produce crystal clear, superior quality videos that have a professional look.”
The new camcorders come with POWER (Optical Image Stabiliser) O.I.S. that helps suppress blurring from low-frequency vibration, as well as an active mode that minimises blurring while moving or walking.
Panasonic’s intuitive iA (Intelligent Auto) function is also available in both the HDC-HS700 and HDC-SD700. A new addition to the iA mode is Face Recognition which lets the user register up to six faces which the camcorder will automatically recognise, and prioritise both focus and exposure, to ensure your favourite people are always captured perfectly.
Both models also have a manual ring that gives greater shooting control such as zoom, focus, aperture, shutter speed and white balance.
The Panasonic HDC- SD700 and HDC-HS700 will be available in April with an RRP of $1699 and $2499, respectively.
