Features

4K Video Recording
Capture all the beauty this world has to offer with the Panasonic HC-VXF990 camcorder in stunning 4K resolution, using this compact camcorder. Impressive stills of fleeting moments and professional-quality films are easier than ever, especially with the high-speed, high-precision autofocus – a masterful 4K feat accomplished by Panasonic.

Smooth Zooming
With Smooth Zoom, you get smooth zooming without any zoom blur. It's also easy to zoom in on an off-centre subject without manoeuvring the camera angle.

Exact Panning
With the Panasonic HC-VXF990 camcorder, you can enjoy smooth and exact panning, too, by simply selecting the start and end points.

Easy Tracking
You can choose a person to be tracked from a video, and the camcorder automatically keeps the object in the cropped area.

Convenient Stabiliser
Even after shooting, you can compensate for shaking thanks to automatic adjustment of the cropping position. The result is more stable, clear footage. Note: Results are recorded in MP4 1080/25p mode.

Tiltable Viewfinder
Capture moments under any conditions and get the quality results you want. The Panasonic HC-VXF990 camcorder’s Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) lets you easily shoot in bright daylight, while contributing to proper viewing. The slide and tilt mechanism gives you the flexibility to shoot from various positions, and the eyecup is detachable to comfortably fit either eye.

Professional Effects
While shooting with Slow & Quick Video*, you can combine slow and quick motion for active scenes to achieve pro-like effects. *Available only with MP4 1080/28M format.

Dramatic Touches
Normally difficult to accomplish manually, slow zooming is easy with Slow Zoom, which lets you express emotional shifts in your subjects.

Suspenseful Scenes
Dolly Zoom* zooms in on the background only while maintaining the subject's size to express feelings such as confusion, distress or surprise. *Available only with MP4 1080/28M format.

Emotional Masterpiece
With smooth Slow Motion Video*, you can turn everyday scenes into works of art. *Available only with MP4 1080/28M format.

Clear Optics
In addition to rendering crisp images, the remarkable LEICA Dicomar lens produces the subtle nuances and shading that LEICA lenses are renowned for, with minimised ghosting and flaring.

Accurate Scenes
By increasing the read-out speed of the recording, the Panasonic HC-VXF990 camcorder’s advanced BSI Sensor with approx. 8M effective pixels suppresses distortion to give an accurate rendering of the scene.

Crystal Engine 4K
The Crystal Engine 4K features a high-speed, large-scale integrated circuit to process the huge volume of 4K data quickly and accurately while reducing noise.

Picture-in-Picture Recording
This compact Panasonic HC-VXF990 camcorder gives you two must-have, fun features for more unique footage. With the built-in Twin Camera*, you can take shots from two angles at the same time. Catch the family and a selfie simultaneously, or both tele and wide-angle shots at once. With Wireless Multi Camera**, you can link to as many as three smartphones and record up to two of them as sub-windows. So you can shoot from a variety of angles to capture all the excitement in a unique way. *Except 24p format. **Except 4K and 24p formats.

Clear Shots with Excellent Detail
Enjoy crisper, clearer videos thanks to the HDR Movie function. It combines two images taken with different exposures to suppress blown highlights and blocked shadows. Even in difficult shooting situations, such as backlighting, you can easily capture natural videos with excellent gradation. A dedicated HDR button enables quick mode changes when necessary. Note: This function is not available with 4K mode nor with 24p format.
