Description

Industry’s Smallest and Lightest 4K 60p Director’s Camcorder
While excelling in mobility and portability, the compact body considers the weight balance of the advanced functions when shooting.

Wide 25mm* and Optical 24x Zoom Lens
The lens covers the range from 25mm wide-angle to 600mm tele with a 24x zoom. i.ZOOM achieves 32x zoom with 4k resolution, and 48x zoom with FHD.

4K High-Precision AF
Face 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.

Hybrid O.I.S
In both UHD/FHD modes, in addition to Optical Image Stabilization, Electronic Image Stabilization detects and corrects handshake in the 5-axis direction. The Ball O.I.S System reduces friction in the drive section, especially improving the correction of small-amplitude blurring.

Heat-Dispersing Design
A new ultrathin fan disperses heat in a camcorder with integrated lens and 4K 60p recording, It is the industry’s smallest and lightest unit with low power consumption.

Versatile Recording Modes
Supports a high bit rate of 200 Mbps for 59.94p/50p video recording with HEVC (LongGOP/10 bit 4:2:0/MOV) codec, and 120/100fps* Super Slow-motion with 10-bit recording in FHD.

4:2:2 10-bit Internal Recording
Records a 4:2:2 10-bit color profile of up to LongGOP UHD 29.97p/25p (150 Mbps), or FHD 59.94p/50p (100 Mbps) with SD cards. Outputs 10-bit UHD 59.94p/50p images via HDMI.

Multi-Formats Supported
Versatile formats and bit rates are available. In addition to easy-to-edit MOV and MP4, 720p AVCHD 8-Mbps (PM) mode is included.

Full-HD Live Streaming
RTSP/RTP/RTMP/RTMPS-compatible HD streaming enables direct and distribution of relays for concerts, sports events and news flashes to Facebook, YouTube, etc.

Wireless Control from a Tablet or Smartphone
A Wi-Fi module is built-in, so Wi-Fi connection of only the body is possible. Using a tablet or smartphone app HC ROP, wireless camera settings, and lens control are also possible.

Built-in LED Video Light
The video light is extremely bright (70 lx at 1 meter) for reliable shooting in dimly lit places. The Dimming Dial on the handle can be used to easily dim the brightness from 30%-100%.
