3CCD Camera System - Superior color, detail and gradation
Most professional broadcasting cameras use the 3CCD system. In a 1CCD system, all of the incoming light information is processed by the same CCD. The more advanced 3CCD system uses three distinct CCDs for processing, so there is absolutely no light loss. You can see the results in beautifully rendered images with vivid color, fine detail, and rich gradation.

O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) - Suppresses hand shake in both motion and still pictures
Panasonic's O.I.S. minimises the hand-shake that can be such a problem with handheld shots. Because Panasonic's system is optical, there is no image quality degradation. When you're shooting a still picture, the MEGA O.I.S. system automatically activates, doubling the corrective power.

Leica Dicomar Lens - Superior Leica certified image quality
AG of Germany is the manufacturer of fine cameras and lenses favored by photographers everywhere. The Leica Dicomar lens featured in the camcorder was developed specifically for digital video cameras, these lens systems are made using a multi-coating process that prevents light reflection and glare, which can make colors bleed and images appear washed out. It also prevents rings of light, or "ghosts"

HD Advanced Pure Color Engine - Special high-performance imaging engine
The HD Advanced Pure Color Engine is a special image processing circuit for the 3CCD HD camcorder. Able to process large amounts of data with high speed and precision, this engine achieves truly superb color reproduction for high-quality pictures.

5.1 Channel Surround Sound - Experience real presence in sound
Panasonic HD camcorders have five electret condenser microphones which separately record sounds from the front, sides, and back. When played on a Dolby Digital 5.1-channel home cinema system, the resulting sound is incredibly lifelike. Also, when zooming in on a subject, the sound also focuses on the area right around the subject.

12x Optocal Zoom - Pull distant subjects right up close
Distant subjects can be enlarged so they appear to be right up close. This allows dynamic shots of both motion and still pictures.

Tele-Macro - Sharp focusing even up close
Using the zoom at full magnification, you can shoot macro close-ups while maintaining a distance of 60 cm from your subject. This makes it much easier to capture extreme close-ups without your body or camera casting a shadow on the subject and while keeping the background in soft focus.

High-Picture-Quality Wide 3.0" LCD - Shoot wide, view wide
This model offers the High-Picture-Quality Wide Mode, which produces images that make for beautiful, dramatic viewing on a wide-screen TV. The image is processed on 16:9 area of the CCD. Because the image decoded has the same proportions as your wide-screen TV, there is virtually no picture quality degradation. You get beautiful images and all the excitement and dynamism on either a wide 16:9 screen TV or a conventional 4:3 TV. This model also features a high-density, 250,000-pixel, wide 3.0-inch LCD, making it easier to frame shots when you?re shooting in 16:9 mode. You can enjoy shooting wide, and viewing wide.

Focus Assist
- Shoot wide, view wide
This function enlarges the center of the image, making it easier for you to get a clear, sharp shot when focusing manually.

Composition Guidelines - Support you best composition
With wide LCD monitors, it's hard to keep images perfectly level. The HDC-DX1 / HDC-SD1 solves this by displaying horizontal and vertical Composition Guide Lines that make it easy to keep the subject straight and level.

8cm DVD-RAM / DVD-RW / DVD-R DL (Dual Layer) DVD-R - Choose the media you want with multi-format ease
DVD camcorder models can record and play DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, DVD-R DL and DVD-R discs. With the DVD-RAM disc, you can record again and again on the same disc, up to tens of thousand times, and view it without any finalising process. You can record repeatedly on DVD-RW discs as well, and they are well suited to editing. While you can record only once on DVD-R DL, DVD-R discs, they can be played back on almost any kind of DVD player or recorder. With DVD camcorder's wide compatibility, you can record on whichever kind of disc works best in your DVD player or recorder.

Simultaneous Motion Video & Still Picture Recording - Take beautiful stills without switching cameras
The joystick makes the camera much easier to use, letting you control all basic operations with one hand. As you shoot, just watch the image in the monitor and follow the instruction guide. You can handle a number of operations quickly and easily, without even taking your eye off the subject.

One -Touch Navigation & Joystick Control - Easy Operation
The joystick makes the camera much easier to use, letting you control all basic operations with one hand. As you shoot, just watch the image in the monitor and follow the instruction guide. You can handle a number of operations quickly and easily, without even taking your eye off the subject.

Quick Search & Access with Thumbnail View - Index screen for simple searching
The camera's LCD screen displays a list of the recorded scenes for quick and easy searching. An index tab lets you switch between motion and still image thumbnails for fast retrieval of specific scenes. You can also do some polished editing using only the camera.

Instant ON/OFF - Power ON/OFF linked to LCD and EVF operation
Instant On / Off reduces the time required for operating the camera. When you open the LCD, the power turns on. Shut it and the power turns off. Pull out the viewfinder and the power turns on. Put it back and the power turns off.

AGS - Auto Ground - Direction Standby
The O.I.S. linear motor system can detect when the camera is in an unusual shooting position - such as when you've inadvertently left it on in recording mode. In these cases, the camera automatically stops recording, saving both battery power and disc space.   

0 Lux MagicPix/High 6 Lux Sensitivity - PCapture crisp, vivid images even in low lighting

0 Lux MagicPix with Light Panel for shooting in total darkness.
Designed for shooting in total darkness, this function shoots four frames per second using the LCD monitor as a light source. Pictures are clear and sharp thanks to the hand-shake compensation provided by the O.I.S. Light from the LCD is gentle and easy on the eyes, so you can snap shots of sleeping children or pets without waking them up.

High 6 Lux Sensitivity for sharp, clear images even in dim lighting.
The pixels are more than twice the ordinary size, so you can shoot in light as low as 6 lux. You get natural-looking shots even in dim rooms or at dusk.

Auto Lens Cover - No more lost lens caps
When the power is turned on, the lens cover automatically opens. When the power goes off, the lens cover closes. You don't have to keep removing and replacing a lens cap - or worry about losing it.

East Connecting, Easy Viewing - Easy viewing on TV
Just connect your camcorder to an HDTV and you're ready for high-definition viewing. If your TV is HDMI* compatible, a single HDMI cable is all you need. When using a Viera TV, you can also operate the camcorder with the Viera remote control for even easier viewing.

Using a BD (Blu-ray Disc) player [for DVD]
Simply take the DVD disc from the camera and slip it in the BD player. There are no cables to connect. It?s that easy.
