Achieves a new level of high-sensitivity image quality

Amazing 3MOS BSI Ultrafine HD Video Quality

New 3MOS System Pro

The New 3MOS System Pro is comprised of the F1.5 LEICA Dicomar Lens, the 3MOS BSI Sensor, and Crystal Engine Pro II. In addition to excellent color reproduction and high-resolution images that the 3MOS system is known for, the new 3MOS System Pro delivers beautiful enhanced image quality, particularly in images shot in dimly lit situations.

* Compared to HDC-X900/X900M/X800.


The X920 Series uses the BSI (Back Side Illumination) Sensor to enhance the three MOS sensors for excellent shooting performance even in low lighting situations. Pixel Shift Technology, which was years in the making, provides an incredible number of effective pixels for moving pictures — equivalent to four times the pixel count of Full-HD. This technology renders ultrafine images with excellent color reproduction and superb detail.

29.8mm Wide-Angle, Intelligent 25x Zoom with 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+

The wide shooting range from 29.8mm wide-angle* to an Intelligent 25x zoom expands your photographic creativity. HYBRID O.I.S. + uses 5-Axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring letting you capture crisp, clear images with reduced blur in almost every shooting situation.

* 35mm camera equivalent.

Level Shot Function

In addition to the 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. +, the X920 Series is also equipped with Level Shot Function that automatically detects and corrects tilting in your images. The X920 delivers more stable videos even when recording from the hip or shooting from a higher angle where you can't line up the horizon yourself.

Level Shot Function OFF:

Images are often tilted without realizing it.

Level Shot Function ON:

An acceleration sensor detects the tilt and automatically levels the scene.

Bright Leica F1.5 12X Optics

LEICA Dicomar Lens

The large-diameter F1.5 lens is mounted with a Nano Surface Coating applied to the lens surface. These advanced lens systems suppress ghosts and flaring when shooting moving pictures, and let you record bright images with very little noise even in dark places.

Crystal Engine Pro ll

The X920 Series features an ultra-high speed Crystal Engine Pro II. By using this engine to perform high-speed processing of the large number of pixels that are obtained with pixel shift technology — approximately equivalent to four times the pixel count of Full-HD — superb Full-HD image quality is achieved even in detailed image parts.

1080 TV Lines Horizontal Resolution

Horizontal resolution of 1080 TV lines* make it possible to shoot high-resolution Full-HD with phenomenal image quality, even in small detailed areas.

* According to the JEITA ITE chart and CIPA (for digital cameras) ISO 12233 resolution chart.

Shooting Functions

Assist Functions for Professional Shooting

Manual Ring

The Manual Ring gives you easy, fingertip control over the iris, focus, zoom and exposure settings. You'll find using the ring is a much more intuitive, comfortable, user-friendly process than accessing a menu screen.

Electronic View Finder (EVF)

This extendable 263,424-dot equivalent viewfinder is easy to use and convenient for focusing and other adjustments. The EVF makes it easy to see your shooting scene in bright sunlight that may be difficult to see on the LCD.

Level Gauge

The filter results can be viewed on the LCD while shooting. Easily create impressive videos that match the look and feel of your shooting location or your mood.

(top left) Miniature Effect

This effect defocuses peripheral areas while keeping the focus point sharp and clear making life-size subjects look like a diorama.

(top right) 8 mm Movie

You can record motion pictures with a faded retro effect.

(bottom left) Silent Movie

You can record motion pictures that are similar to black-and-white silent films by lowering the amount of incoming light.

(bottom right) Time Lapse Recording

A scene that moves slowly for a long period of time is recorded frame by frame with an interval, and is recorded as a short time motion picture.

5.1-Ch Surround Sound System

The X920 Series is equipped with multiple electret condenser microphones. These help capture the sound source and distance accurately to get a more 3-dimensional effect. The result is a more realistic sound space that compliments the true-to-life HD images.

(Left) Wide (1x)

Picks up audio from all directions to reproduce a natural, lifelike sound field.

(center) Zoom Mic (12x)

Links the microphones to the lens action. When you zoom in on a subject, the microphones focus on the sound in that same direction.

(right) Focus Mic

Enables the microphones to focus on sounds coming from right in front of you, even when the lens is not zooming.

Wind Noise Canceller

The Wind Noise Canceller automatically detects and suppresses only wind noise, giving you natural sounds with lifelike ambience.

iA (Intelligent Auto) / iA Plus

In the iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode, the camera does all the work, leaving you free to compose your shot and capture the moment. This powerful function senses the shooting conditions and automatically adjusts the settings and activates the proper functions to deliver optimal results. In addition, the iA Plus Mode enables you to adjust exposure compensation and white balance by simply touching the button on the LCD.

iA Plus

Easily customize settings without releasing iA mode.

Brightness Control

You can adjust the exposure compensation accurately and easily.

Color Control

You can adjust the white balance from warm red to cool blue.

FULL HD 3D Recording with 3D Conversion Lens

Right-eye and left-eye images are both recorded and played in Full-HD quality, using the Frame Sequential Method to produce FULL HD 3D images. This brings all the lifelike ambience of the actual scene right into your living room.

Operation and Usability

3.5-inch Wide LCD

The X920 Series features a 1,152,000-dot 8.8-cm / 3.5-inch wide LCD that allows intuitive fingertip touch-operation. When shooting, you can use Touch Shutter by simply touching your fingertip on the screen. For playback, you can change thumbnail pages by sliding your fingertip across the screen.

HC-X920K is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Video & Audio but not great still pictures I bought my x920 in March 2015 mainly for the video quality and the fact it could take high quality stills using it's built in flash. I am very impressed with it's video and audio quality but VERY, VERY disappointed with it's still picture quality. You would think that a camera with 3 video sensors would produce pictures the same quality as the video pictures, but it does not. Seems a waste that the camera has 3 megapixel settings, 2.1, 9.4 & 20.4, plus 3 aspect size choices, 4:3, 3:2 and 16:9. Other than the size difference, all 3 of the MP size pictures look pretty much the same quality. I have compared all size images with my 3 year old Olympus Stylus 10MP pocket camera set at 5 MP, and the Olympus still-quality far exceeds the x920. One positive note is that stills can be taken with or without flash using the stills switch or without flash on the video switch setting. The flash works but it is very weak. The WiFi features would be great if a normal person could somehow figure them out, so I have given up on that. All the other many features on the camera are great to have and which a lot are not available on other brands. So overall, I would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly Easy to Use I would recommend this camera to anybody looking for high quality results combined with operational ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from X920: 3MOS Ultrafine Full HD Video Camcorder I have used X920 for a little over a year for recording and broadcasting live youth/High School sports and activities. It performs perfectly, even under some very poor conditions. A great piece of equipment. If pressed to make a suggestion, it would be to have a clean HDMI out port.
Date published: 2015-01-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent camcorder update I had a Panasonic HDC-SD5 previously and decided to take the plunge for a new one. This is a big update for me as I have been looking for a camcorder with better low light capability than the SD5 model. I also purchased this one for the better clock rate and the newer AVCHD codec. My editing software doesn't yet support the top recording standard 1080/P60, hopefully soon. It is a easy to use camcorder, you won't go wrong with this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Reliable Camera Battery last for an exceeded amount of time, I expected, have taken it to the beach, snow and have not had any issues, my children love the menu, easy for anybody to operated, NO NEED of the viewfinder, Best investment for your money, Will recommend it to friends and family.
