4K 1″ MOS Sensor: 

  Perfect for high-precision, high-speed 4K 24p, UHD 60p/50p recording:

  This Sensor has the “elegant” balance between its sensitivity and footage quality.

  • ~ 9.46 megapixels in 4K 24p,
  • ~ 8.79 megapixels in UHD/FHD, 
  • There are many possible recording formats:
    • 4K/24p frames progressive scan recording,

    • HD 120-fps (59.94Hz) super slow-motion recording,
    • HD 100-fps (50Hz) super slow-motion recording.


Intelligent Autofocus:

   Precise AF performance is provided by moving the Micro Drive Focus Unit slowly and quickly. Autofocus can be customized by adjusting its Speed and Sensitivity, and also the Area. This will guarantee the best accommodation of application or the subject type.

Hybrid Optical Image Stabilizer, working in 5 different Axis:

   The Camcorder’s Impressive hand-shake correction algorithm is using the combination between optical and electronic image stabilizations, especially in HD shooting modes. 

  The Result is obsessive: The different directional hand-shake, also and roll rotation, is caught and corrected.

Advanced O.I.S.

  Compared to the Panasonic AG-AC160A, the HC-X1’s correction area of O.I.S. has been expanded to approximately 9 times. The Basic advantage that provides powerful correction is virtuously improved small-amplitude hand-shakings with a non-tripod shooting. 


   The all-new ultra-performance LEICA DICOMAR 4K Lens delivers 24mm(¹) at the wide-angle setting with negligible distortions.

   The exact solution when you need to record in tight spaces.

(¹)35mm film equivalent at 4K 24p (aspect ratio 17:9),  25.4mm for UHD/FHD (aspect ratio 16:9).

Optical Zoom:

  The optical 20x zoom lens covers the range from 24mm wide-angle to 480mm telescopic. It allows zooming quickly from wide-angle to telescopic.

Driving Lens System:

  The Panasonic HC-X1 uses an emblematic 4-Drive Lens System. It can independently and simultaneously drive 4 lens groups, as follow:

  • Group 2 of lenses,
  • Iris Diaphragm,
  • Group 3 of lenses,
  • Group 4 of lenses.

   The sophisticated moving system effectively manipulates each Lens pair and group paths and ranges for optimal image quality and zoom power.

Dual Codec Recording:

  The Camcorder can record simultaneously in two different formats:

  • Primary: Ultra HD / Full HD,
  • Secondary: Full HD.

  The generated from the secondary FHD (8Mbps) SUB-type files can be used for Editing, user preview or live cellular retransmission.
