4K Video Recording with Mobility. The Panasonic HC-X1000GC is a full-fledged 4K camcorder supporting various recording formats, like 4K/Cinema 4K/ Full-HD, frame rates including 60p/50p/24p and a host of professional functions. Its 4K resolution produces stunning, lifelike images, and its compact body adds agile mobility. 4K delivers a far more intense viewing experience than you have seen before. Its native resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels is four times larger than Full-HD, resulting in a much higher level of detail. Even if you export your footage filmed in 4K to Full-HD, the video files will have even better definition and crisper details than those filmed in Full-HD. Ideal for professionals shooting documentaries and events. Are you ready to enter the 4K era? Here's the perfect way to do it!


4K 60p/50p Video Recording
With four times the resolution of Full-HD, the HC-X1000 records in 4K (3840 x 2160) and Cinema 4K (4096 x 2160) formats. This delivers true-to-life images for a wide variety of shooting situations, in extremely high detail. Incredible 4K image quality is achieved at 60p/50p. Using 60p/50p the video frame rate has double the information compared to 30p/25p, meaning smoother motion. Even with Full-HD, recording is processed by a 4K 8-megapixel sensor. Compared to the 2-megapixel sensor used on ordinary Full-HD camcorders, this renders high-quality images right down to the finest details, with minimal blurring.

Versatile Recording Formats and Bit Rates
Versatile recording formats and bit rates prepare the HC-X1000 for use in a wide range of applications. The AVCHD recording format is joined by MOV and MP4 for quick and easy editing. Full-HD recording employs ALL-Intra compression for a maximum bit rate of 200 Mbps. This brings outstanding quality to image production.

High Quality Core Technology
Leica Dicomar Lens: In addition to rendering crisp images, this remarkable lens produces the subtle nuances and shading that Leica lenses are renowned for.
1/2.3” BSI Sensor: Increasing the readout speed of this sensor has made it possible to handle large-volume 4K data at a fast 60 fps/50 fps.
Crystal Engine Pro 4K: This high-speed LSI processes the massive volume of 4K data quickly and accurately while reducing noise.

High Performance in a Compact Body
In spite of its many professional functions, such as the Triple Manual Ring, ND Filter, and Dual SD Card Slot, this compact design — thanks to its 4-Drive Lens System — enables stable, handheld shooting. Ideal for field work where mobility is a must.

4K Video Editing
Sometimes after filming a great scene we later wish we would have framed our shots a little differently. 4K allows you to crop your composition and choose the perfect frame. You can zoom up to 200 % while maintaining HD picture quality, turn stationary footage into a panning shot, tilt and level your footage and easily stabilise your video. Cropping, zooming, panning, tilting, stabilising - new options in editing 4K footage.

20x Zoom with 4-Drive Lens System
Compact lenses and a space-saving drive range are achieved by driving each of the four lens groups separately, to fit a 20x optical zoom in such a compact body. This clearly shows in professional applications, such as sports scenes, captured in 4K detail with the 20x optical zoom.

Blur-Free Images Anywhere, Anytime
POWER O.I.S. for 4K: The gyro sensors detect hand-shake up to 4,000 times/sec to enable the lens to compensate. This corrects slow hand-shake caused by breathing. Subjects stay sharp even with 20x zoom shots and 4K resolution.
5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. + (Full-HD only): HYBRID O.I.S. + uses 5-axis correction to suppress blurring all the way from wide-angle to zoom shots. This captures clear images in almost every shooting situation.
High-Speed, High-Precision AF: Comfortable, higher-quality 4K recording is achieved by maintaining the AF drive frequency at 60 Hz/50 Hz to improve focus speed, stability and tracking performance.

Background Recording (Full-HD only)
One SD card can be set in Slot 2 to record continuously, and another SD card can be set in Slot 1 to record necessary scenes by turning REC on and off. This prevents important scenes from being missed when REC is turned off.

ND Filter
ND filters are built into the lens to suppress the amount of incident light. The filters can be selected (1/4, 1/16, 1/64, or OFF) to match the shooting environment. This is convenient, for example, when you want to shoot at a slow shutter speed in bright daylight. Also, when opening the aperture, you can attain high resolution and a shallow depth of field.

Triple Manual Rings
In spite of the HC-X1000's compact body, features such as a focus ring, zoom ring, and iris ring on the lens barrel meet professional needs. This enables speedy and intuitive camera work. The illuminating LED ring allows people to verify more easily that recording is in progress, making the shooting smoother. The user can turn the illumination on or off.

2-Channel XLR Audio Input Terminals
The HC-X1000 comes with 2-channel XLR audio input terminals for external mic or line recording. It also has a +48 V phantom power supply. This enables the use of professional-spec, high-performance microphones for recording high-quality sound.

Wi-Fi Functions with NFC
Remote Shooting: Control and monitor the HC-X1000 in real time from a distance by using the Panasonic Image App on a smartphone or tablet device.
One-touch Connection: A simple touch is all it takes to connect your HC-X1000 with your smart device thanks to the NFC standard.
Easy QR Code Connection: QR codes are also provided for use by those who don’t have an NFC compatible phone.

Host of Features and Functions
Simultaneous Recording: Two SD card slots allow to record data at the same time onto both SD cards, so you don’t have to worry about losing data.

Auto-Switch Recording: When the first card reaches full capacity, the system automatically and seamlessly switches to the second card. (The voice is interrupted for approximately one second during device switching.)

0 Lux Night Mode: Infrared rays and IR-LED lighting let you shoot in the dark (0 lux). You can shoot clear images even when observing animals at night.

Focus Peaking/Focus Expand: Focus Peaking is displayed in a selectable colour for easy manual focusing, and Focus Expand increases magnification up to 10x with multi-function dial control. Use them together to check the focus at a glance.

Area Mode Function: You can choose the focus area by touching any part of the screen. AE/AF operation continues at the selected position.

High-Speed HDMI Cable Included: Display high-resolution 4K 60p/50p videos on a 4K VIERA TV by simply connecting the provided high-speed HDMI cable. * With HDMI connection to a Full-HD TV, the HC-X1000 can supply down-converted signals.
