Panasonic HC-VXF990, Black

The HC-VXF990 is combined with advanced imaging technologies, such as the LEICA DICOMAR Lens, BSI Sensor and Crystal Engine 4K, to produce beautiful 4K images that boast four times the resolution of Full-HD. This model is equipped with high-speed, high-precision auto focus technologies to capture sharp, crisp images because focusing is highly critical for 4K shooting. In addition, by recording in 4K Photo mode, the user can obtain 8-megapixel still images of decisive moments that can't be captured even by the burst shooting of an SLR camera.

The HC-VXF990 is packed with advanced functions and features to satisfy the needs of both professionals and high-amateurs. With the new tiltable Viewfinder, this model makes it easier to capture subjects more precisely. Cinema Like Effects are new features that allow the use of shooting techniques seen in cinemas, such as Slow & Quick Video,* Slow Zoom and Dolly Zoom.* This compact 4K camcorder provides a great deal of fun for creating cinema style videos.

Newly added 4K Cropping cuts out Full-HD images from 4K footage using only the camcorder. It allows effects to be added to a recorded video, such as zooming, panning, tracking and stabilizing. The edited video is saved in Full-HD format. This function is especially appreciated by those who want to create high-quality Full-HD videos.

Using Wi-Fi, it is possible to link to as many as three smartphones and simultaneously record up to two of them as sub-windows. The two sub-window images can be interchanged, and their display positions can be switched. This enables shooting from a variety of angles and viewpoints, to capture a level of emotional impact that simply isn't possible with a single camera.

By driving each of four lens groups separately, the drive ranges are reduced, resulting in high image quality, high-powered zooming, and a compact camera body. This keeps the body compact even with a 20x optical zoom and 4K definition.
