Every Scene Deserves the Beauty of High Definition
The HD Advanced Pure Color Engine is a special image processing circuit for the 3CCD HD video camera. Able to process large amounts of data with high speed and precision, this engine achieves truly superb color reproduction for high quality pictures. And with High 6lux Sensitivity, the pixels are more than twice the ordinary size, so you can shoot in light as low as 6lux, achieving natural-looking shots even in dim rooms or at dusk.

Rich, Vivid Colors Take HD to a Beautiful New Level
HD is especially good for scenes with rich, vibrant colors. And Panasonic HD camcorders provide the best in color reproduction, thanks to the use of an advanced 3CCD camera system. This system, which uses the same technology used in Panasonic professional broadcast cameras, helps reproduce high-resolution HD images with magnificent color by using three distinct CCDs for processing, so there is absolutely no light loss.

Suppress Camera Shake 151 Even on a Big-Screen TV
Imagine taking video shots on a moving boat and then viewing them on a large-screen TV. They're likely to appear blurry from the boat's movement and from your unsteady hands. Panasonic solves this problem with O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), which minimizes hand-shake in situations where it is most often a problem, such as with zoom shots 151 or on a moving boat. The system is optical, so there is no quality loss, and images look clear and beautiful on a big-screen TV.

Capture Voices Over a Wide Area for Lifelike Sound
Panasonic high definition video cameras have five electret condenser microphones, one each to capture sounds from the front, back, right, left and center. The center mic helps capture the sound source and distance more accurately. This provides a more three-dimensional effect than conventional systems, which only capture sounds from the front. The Dolby 5.1-Channel Surround Sound system creates a true-to-life sound space that's a great match for the HD image quality.

Take Your Memories with You 151 Anywhere
Shooting video is easier and more convenient with the SD/SDHC Memory Card. Its compact size 151 measuring a mere 0.94W x 1.26H x 0.08D inches and weighing only about 2 grams 151 makes it very portable. With an ability to stand up to rough environmental conditions, you can record just about anywhere. And uploading your precious memories onto your PC is quick and easy without the need to connect a cable or run a finalizing process when transferring the data.
