High-quality Recording

1/2.5-type (1/2.5-inch) Sensor

Increasing the readout speed has made it possible to handle large-volume 4K data at a fast 60 fps. This suppresses the rolling shutter distortion that often occurs when shooting moving subjects.

Wide 25mm* and Optical 24x Zoom Lens

The lens covers the range from 25mm wide-angle to 600mm tele with a 24x zoom achieved by a 4-Drive Lens System.

  • * 35mm camera equivalent.

i.ZOOM 32x (UHD) / 48x (FHD)

4K High-Precision AF

An image sensor with 60fps readout and a precise focus lens drive enable superior focusing speed, stability and tracking performance for both 4K and FHD. Complex 4K focusing is also automated for comfortable framing of stunning 4K shots.

Face Detection AF/AE Using Color

Face Detection precisely captures subjects on-site free from out-of-focus problems and insufficient exposure.
Also, by adding color recognition, tracking subjects is improved, without interruption, when the face moves to either side.

5-Axis Hybrid O.I.S. (UHD/FHD)

In both UHD/FHD modes, in addition to Optical Image Stabilization, Electronic Image Stabilization detects and corrects handshake in the 5-axis direction. This provides strong correction under unstable conditions, such as low-angle and high-angle shooting.

Ball O.I.S. System

This system reduces friction on the drive section, achieving delicate correction even for small-amplitude handshake.

O.I.S. Lens Unit

ND Filter

ND filters are built into the lens to suppress the amount of incident light. The filters can be selected (1/4, 1/16, 1/64, or OFF) to match the shooting environment. This is convenient, for example, when you want to shoot at a slow shutter speed in bright daylight. Also, when opening the aperture, you can attain high resolution and a shallow depth of field.

Heat-Dispersing Design

A new ultrathin fan disperses heat in the camcorder with integrated lens and 4K 60p recording. It is the industry's smallest and lightest unit with low power consumption.

Venus Engine

The Venus Engine, which contains technologies accumulated with LUMIX, is newly incorporated in these camcorders. This enables 4:2:2 10-bit internal recording with maximum 29.97p in UHD, and maximum 59.94p in FHD.
