Panasonic HC-X1500 Camcorder
The integrated lens offers a remarkably powerful, optical 24x zoom that ranges from 25mm wide angle to 600mm tele (35mm equivalent). i.ZOOM achieves 32x at 4K resolution, and 48x at FHD. The 4-Drive Lens System drives the four lens groups independently, thus achieving the optical 24x zoom. With a LEICA Dicomar Lens, stunningly beautiful images are produced while suppressing flaring and ghosts. Two Manual Rings are utilised, one for focusing and the other for zoom or iris operation. Built-in ND Filters can be selected from 1/4, 1/16, 1/64, and Clear.
High-speed, high-precision autofocus
Superior focusing speed, stability and tracking performance for both 4K and Full-HD is achieved thanks to Face Detection AF/AE. Face Detection AF/AE provides precise focusing and sufficient exposure, and subject tracking with colour recognition can be activated just by touching the LCD panel.
Compact body with heat-dispersing design
A heat-dispersing design including a thin, newly-developed fan has enabled this camcorder to achieve reliable, extended shooting. It functions by pulling in air from the rear panel of the camera and efficiently dispersing heat from the front panel.
Functional design to support professional work
For shooting in dim lighting, a bright video light controlled by an adjustable dimmer dial is built into the optional VW-HU1 handle, allowing brightness to be adjusted from 30% to 100%. For shooting in even darker conditions, separately available IR lights are supported for IR (Infrared) Shooting. The 3.5-inch monitor is 2,760K-dot resolution, making it approximately 2x brighter and providing higher legibility even under bright sunlight. Futhermore, since the 1,555K-dot tiltable viewfinder and LCD output simultaneously, the image being recorded can also be confirmed in the LCD monitor while viewing it on the EVF, therefore improving work efficiency. Additionally, to support fast and accurate manual focusing, Focus Assist functions are equipped, including Expand, Peaking and One-push AF. A great design feature on this camcorder is that the battery does not protrude when attached. It enables approximately 4.5 hours of continual operation.
Versatile network functions expand workflow
With a built-in Wi-Fi module there is no need for a separate wireless LAN module, and Wi-Fi connection is possible solely with the camcorder. RTSP/RTP/RTMP/RTMPS-Compatible HD Streaming allows direct connection and streaming over Facebook, YouTube, etc.
