Panasonic VX1 4K Ultra HD 24x Leica Dicomar Lens 1/2.5-Inch BSI MOS Sensor Camcorder

The Panasonic VX1 camcorder offers a 4K cinema-like recording experience which includes a manual lens-mounted control ring for improved control. Premium optical and sensor performance come from a new LEICA DICOMAR 24x optical zoom lens (25-600mm) with a bright aperture range from f/1.8 wide - 4.0 tele and a large 1/2.5-inch BSI MOS Sensor for impressive capture even in low light. To keep the image rock stable, three unique optical image stabilization technologies work together; 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+, Ball O.I.S. and Adaptive O.I.S. For a more natural look, a new Active Contrast technology equalizes gradation, while the HDR Movie mode enables a wider dynamic range response.

4K Premium Image Quality

High-definition 4K shooting gives you highly natural, realistic images. And 4K PHOTO captures those decisive moments. You get uncompromising picture quality at all times with the remarkable LEICA Dicomar lens.

4K High-Precision AF

Enjoy excellent, high-speed, tracking performance and stability. With Custom AF you can also choose from three focus modes.

Active Contrast

Automatically equalizes gradation in response to the brightness distribution within the image.

4K Cropping

When shooting in 4K, your subjects stay framed without blurring because you can edit images in-camera and save them in Full-HD.

Cinema-Like Effect

Allows Dolly Zoom and other professional-like shooting techniques used in cinema films.

Wide 25mm and Optical 24x Zoom Lens

This new 4K lens ranges from 25mm wide-angle to 600mm tele with a 24x zoom, achieved by a 4-Drive Lens System. The stunning wide-angle setting not only fits large groups of people and background images into narrow locations but is also convenient for taking selfies with a rotatable LCD.

Brilliant Videos in Low Light

The large 1/2.5-inch sensor and bright f/1.8 lens offer about 1.7 times the conventional low-light performance. Noise is also suppressed even when shooting in dimly lit places like indoor scenes or nightscapes.

Panasonic VX1 4K Ultra HD 24x Leica Dicomar Lens 1/2.5" BSI MOS Sensor Camcorder wireless twin

Panasonic VX1 4K Ultra HD 24x Leica Dicomar Lens 1/2.5-Inch BSI MOS Sensor Camcorder SKU: HC-VX1K

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good camera for a good price I had purchased the HC-VX1 camcorder about a month ago. It is light weight and handy. The video quality is excellent as well as the still picture quality. This is a 4k camcorder, however the max framerate for the same is 30 fps. But, I mostly record at 1080p with 60 fps. The OIS is good, but not exceptional. Night video recording is also good, however you will get noise especially in very dark situations. Still pictures taken in the dark have a lot of noise. HDR mode makes a huge improvement in darkness, however the noise remains. It has 24x optical zoom, which is very nice. It has a built shoe so you don't have worry about losing your shoe adapter. Sound quality is excellent. The battery life is average as you get maybe a little over an hour. I would recommend getting the VW-VBT380 battery, which has twice the battery life. But, it is relatively difficult to find authentic panasonic ones nowadays. There is no inbuilt memory, and you will have to use a memory card. There is no focus ring or viewfinder in this model, which is available on the higher model HC-WXF1 I think. I had a HC-VX981K panasonic camcorder, which is an older and very similar camcorder compared to this. Some plus points it had compared to this camcorder are that it had a built in video light and infrared night vision. However, the optical zoom was only 20x in that camcorder. The lens hood in this camcorder really doesn't feel like much of a lens hood, but something is better than nothing. This camcorder itself is made in Malaysia and the battery is made in China. Overall, it is an excellent camcorder probably the best in its price range, and I am very happy with the purchase.
