High-density, ultra-smooth images
1080/60p Recording (Full-HD 1920 x 1080, 60 Progressive Recording)

The HDC-HS700 uses the progressive method to record twice as much image data as the interlace method. Whereas interlacing requires two images to produce a complete picture, the progressive method records a single image as a complete picture. Plus, the 60 Progressive Recording of the HDC-HS700 produces 60 images per second. This extremely dense image information creates intricate detail and silky smooth motion. Even when subjects move quickly, afterimages are minimized to create more natural images. The progressive method is most effective when shooting detailed designs where moir patterns tend to occur, or when capturing scenes during sports events where the subjects are intensely moving around. Also, the recorded images are displayed clearly even when they are made into still images, so it is possible to preserve stunning photos when clipping them from videos.



A bright, high-performance lens.
Leica Dicomar Lens

Panasonic HD camcorders use Leica Dicomar lenses, which are renowned for their ability to render sharp images and excellent shading. They also suppress ghosting, flare, and distortion at the image edges. Even in strong sunlight, these superb lenses maintain high contrast and resolution. A bright new F1.5-F2.8 lens with a 46mm filter diameter has been created for the HDC-HS700. Efficient light collection allows the new lens to capture bright, clear images even in dim lighting or at high shutter speeds. This high-end lens brings out all the beauty of Full-HD images. *Leica is a registered trademark of Leica Microsystem IR GmbH, and Dicomar is a registered trademark of Leica Camera AG.



Captures large groups, even when shooting from up close.
35mm Wide-Angle Lens*

The 35mm wide-angle lens on the HDC-HS700 fits more people and more of the background into the frame than a conventional 44.9mm lens. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room.

Beautiful zoom shots of distant subjects.
18x Intelligent Zoom

The HDC-HS700 features a 12x optical zoom and an Intelligent Zoom function that goes all the way up to 18x. When using Intelligent Zoom, Intelligent Resolution Technology lets you shoot at high zoom rates while preserving image sharpness. You get crisp images of highly detailed objects - without the blurry edges.

Reviews

HDC-HS700K is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent camera- fan TOO LOUD It's a decent camera. The problem is 60fps really aren't used anywhere so there isn't much of a point for it. In reality, 24fps is enough for most things. And the other problem is that you have to use it's own software to utilize the 60p - unless you have the latest version of Adobe Premier. And it's not easy to get 60fps working on a mac. These guys really need to make a mac driver for this camera. The biggest problem with this camera is that the fan is too loud. Don't believe me, search for the camera name in youtube. Also it is next to impossible to attach an external mic to this camera. My Rode mic does not work. too bad! The still functions are decent but nothing to write home about. Also I would say the low light/nighttime images leave a lot to be desired. Although in the day time outside, it is phenomenal, but which camera isn't. Low light capability is what sets cameras apart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Christmas gift to have! I've got European version (we have 50p here) but this is really great to have this wonder of technology. If you are looking for long term investment to your home video gear then this is the option to choose. On top of them, you'll get very nice companion to your computer and HD set to enjoy great video for years.
