Product Details

Panasonic Black HD Camcorder, Model HCV700K


  • Produces stunning images in all kinds of situations. New High Sensitivity Sensor
    Newly developed High Sensitivity Sensor portrays brightly lit scenes beautifully, and also captures dimly lit scenes with crisp, bright images and minimal noise. It produces stunning images in all kinds of situations, such as shooting indoors and at night. Because the pixels of this sensor are densely aligned, Intelligent Resolution Technology can be used when the Intelligent 46x Zoom exceeds the optical 21x zoom level, while maintaining the HD pixel count for high-powered zoom shots with incredible beauty.

  • Intricate details from Intelligent Resolution Technology. Crystal Engine PRO
    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 40%.* And Intelligent Resolution Technology ensures sharp and crisp pictures, resulting in bright and beautifully colored

  • Sharpens details and enhances smooth areas. Intelligent Resolution Technology
    The Intelligent Resolution Technology incorporated in the Crystal Engine PRO uses edge detection technology to confirm the edges of objects within the image, then emphasizes the edges for optimal clarity. For example, it brings crisp definition to patterns and the outlines of objects like flowers. Conversely, it reduces noise and enhances the natural smoothness of parts without edges, like the sky. The increased sharpness is especially effective for images with delicate details. This highly advanced technology maximizes the beauty of Full-HD images. motion images

  • Easily save important scenes in 3D. 3D Image Recording
    Simply mounting the optional 3D Conversion Lens to the V700 enables easy 3D shooting.* The 3D Conversion Lens is smaller than the one for last year's models, and its brightness has also been increased from F3.3 to F2.4. .

  • Crisp, clear images even for fast-moving subjects AVCHD Progressive Compliant 1080/60p Recording
    1080/60p recording (Full-HD, 1,920 x 1,080, 60 progressive recording) conveys about twice the information of 1080i (interlace) recording. Fast-moving subjects, such as in sports scenes, are smoothly recorded. The progressive recording of the V700 fully complies with the AVCHD Progressive standard.

  • Captures large groups, even when shooting from up close. 28mm Wide-Angle*
    The 28mm wide-angle* on the V700 fits more people and more of the background into the frame. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room. It fits your subjects in even when you shoot from up close, and makes it possible to pick up even small sounds with the mic. It also gives you entirely new ways to enjoy your camcorder, like taking self portraits or capturing sweeping landscapes without losing the sense of scale.

        Comments about Panasonic Black HD Camcorder:

        I recently bought this camera after my TM90 was stolen. The new V700 sports larger sensor (which results in lower image noise and higher dynamic range), external image stabilizer and mode selection controls, 6.1 megapixels for still images (15.3 megapixels total). There are video samples on YouTube, but keep in mind that when you upload a video clip, YouTube compresses it. HD Writer AE software doesn't upload video clips on Facebook in HD while uploading them in HD on YouTube. I wish I could select the video quality to make sure I'm uploading the highest quality possible without any compression. Another confusion is in tech specs. It says the camcorder has 21x optical zoom while my camcorder shows 26x. In a lens section of specs the focal length is 2.82-59.2mm which is almost 21x, a little further it says 35mm camera equivalent 28.0-717.4mm which makes 26x zoom. There is no need for USB 3.0 since the SD card Class 10 provides only 10MB/s. Another thing I wish in this camcorder is the "shutter speed" lower than 1/30 to capture the night sky (or I just didn't find it yet). Other than that the camcorder is just a great purchase.
