When it comes to making movies, good just isn’t good enough. The same is true of our camcorders. That’s why our 3MOS Full-HD camcorders have three separate colour sensors to process red, green and blue. Put simply, it means you get clearer true-to-life colour. And when you combine this technology with 1.6 lux low light recording, you get camcorders that are not just fine, but the best full HD camcorders in their class.
The Panasonic Full-HD Camcorders HDC-HS700, HDC-TM700, HDC-SD700 and HDC-SD600 feature the 3MOS Sensor, with its three-sensor configuration. This provides a resolution of 7.59 million effective motion image pixels (2.53 million x 3).
The 3MOS Sensor splits the light information captured by the lens into the three primary colours - red, green and blue - and processes each colour with its own individual sensor. This reduces light loss compared to the 1MOS sensor, and renders colours, details and gradation all with intricate detail and natural beauty. This superb colour reproduction maximises the inherent quality of Full-HD progressive images. New technology to raise light-gathering efficiency has also improved sensor sensitivity and cut noise in half (compared to previous Panasonic models). This gives you bright images with minimal noise even in low-light situations. Unlike conventional camcorders, where the colours in shadow areas easily fade, even the fi nest details come through in vivid colour, and noise is reduced by half. The expressive power of the advanced 3MOS Sensor renders both bright and dark scenes with the rich, luscious colours that Full-HD offers.
To maximise the beauty of Full-HD 1920 X 1080, 50 progressive recording, Panasonic worked to develop the ideal camera system. The result is the advanced 3MOS System, which combines the 3MOS Sensor, Leica Dicomar Lens, and Crystal Engine PRO. Advances in these three technologies then made it possible to improve the sensitivity of the camcorder's sensors and cut noise in half (compared to previous Panasonic models). The results are spectacular. Images shot in bright conditions are even more vibrant and detailed. And in dim lighting, you can capture clear, sharp images without colour loss. See for yourself how Panasonic technology brings out the best in Full-HD image quality.
And thanks to 1,080 lines of horizontal resolution, detail is exceptional. This advanced system uses the same approach as the 3-sensor systems that were first developed for use in professional broadcast equipment. With a Panasonic 3MOS camcorder, you can capture precious events in beautiful images that you'll enjoy viewing again and again.
Take beautiful shots even by candlelight. With Panasonic's new 3MOS sensor model, you can shoot clear shots in lighting as low as 1.6 lx. With the 3MOS Sensor, there is minimal loss of colour information. This lets you shoot even in fairly dark places. Together with the high performance Crystal Engine PRO, the 3MOS System lets you capture clear, low-noise images even when the lights are low.
