Advanced 3MOS System

To maximize 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. 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 color loss. See for yourself how Panasonic technology brings out the best in Full-HD image quality


1080/50p Recording

We all want to preserve our treasured memories with images of the highest possible quality. And that's exactly what 1080/50p recording (full-HD 1920 x 1080, 50 progressive recording) does. Compared to the conventional interlace method, 1080/50p recording contains twice the amount of information. This greatly increases image density, and makes even the tiniest details clear. It smoothly reproduces the images of fast-moving subjects without leaving afterimages, making it ideal for shooting both sports scenes and landscapes. This is the kind of detailed beauty you can expect with 1080/50p recording


Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization)

The corrective ability of POWER O.I.S. has been increased by five times compared to previous models, allowing it to correct even slight hand-shake, something that wasn't possible with conventional O.I.S. Even high-power zoom shots, which are highly susceptible to hand-shake, now come out sharp and clear


iA with Face Recognition

The new models' iA comes with the Face Recognition feature. It recognizes the registered faces of subjects and automatically optimizes their focus and exposure for them. It continues to track the subject as the person moves anywhere within the LCD frame, making it ideal for video shooting. For example, this is extremely useful for clearly capturing a child's face in a group


Leica Dicomar Lens

Panasonic HD camcorders use Leica Dicomar lenses, which are renowned for their ability to render sharp images and excellent shading. They also suppress ghosting, flare, and distortion at the image edges. Even in strong sunlight, these superb lenses maintain high contrast and resolution. A bright new F1.5-F2.8 lens with a 46mm filter diameter has been created for the Full-HD 700 Series. Efficient light collection allows the new lens to capture bright, clear images even in dim lighting or at high shutter speeds. This high-end lens brings out all the beauty of Full-HD images


3" LCD Display

Record and review your footage with the generous 3" LCD display; an included stylus helps you navigate the touch screen menu options with ease


18x Intelligent Zoom

The HDC-HS700 features a 12x optical zoom and an Intelligent Zoom function that goes all the way up to 18x. When using Intelligent Zoom, Intelligent Resolution Technology lets you shoot at high zoom rates while preserving image sharpness. You get crisp images of highly detailed objects - without the blurry edges


Crystal Engine PRO

The new Crystal Engine PRO instantly processes the huge amount of data that goes into Full-HD images, and further enhances Full-HD quality. It produces smooth, high-resolution zoom shots even when the range exceeds the limit for optical zooming. Crystal Engine PRO clearly delineates even the tiniest details of your subject, with extremely natural beauty. New Noise Reduction (NR) Technology minimizes noise when recording in low lighting conditions, and Intelligent Resolution Technology ensures sharp and crisp pictures, resulting in bright and beautifully colored motion images


Intelligent Resolution Technology

The Intelligent Resolution Technology incorporated in the new Crystal Engine PRO uses edge detection technology to confirm the edges of objects within the image, then emphasizes the edges for optimal clarity. For example, it brings crisp definition to patterns and the outlines of objects like flowers. Conversely, it reduces noise and enhances the natural smoothness of parts without edges, like the sky. The increased sharpness is especially effective for images with delicate details. This highly advanced technology maximizes the beauty of Full-HD images


Up to 14.2MP Still Image Capture

Capture brilliant still images up to 14.2MP in size when shooting in the 3:2 aspect ratio. When shooting in 16:9, otherwise known as wide angle, the HDC-HS700 is capable of taking up to 13.3MP photos. And in 4:3, the standard imaging size, the camera can capture up to

12.2MP photos


35mm Wide Angle Lens

The 35mm wide-angle lens on the HD 700 Series fits more people and more of the background into the frame than a conventional 44.9mm lens. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room


Wide Conversion Lenses (Optional)

Wide conversion lenses, which further extend wide-angle shooting capability, have been added to the HD 700 Series as optional accessories. The VW-W4607H model allows 0.7x wide-angle shooting, and the VW-WE08H model enables 0.8x wide-angle shooting


5.1 Channel Surround Sound System and Zoom Mic

The HD700 Series is equipped with five electret condenser microphones. The center mic helps capture the sound source and distance accurately, so you get a more 3-dimensional effect than you get with conventional systems, which capture all sounds from the front. You get a realistic sound space that's a perfect match with the true-to-life HD images


Wind Noise Canceller

The technology of the previous Wind Cut function has evolved to form the Wind Noise Canceller. The new function automatically detects and suppresses only wind noise, to give you natural sounds with lifelike ambiance. Also, unlike the previous Wind Cut function, which switched to monaural recording, the Wind Noise Canceller enables stereo recording. This maintains natural sounds when shooting outdoors


Bass Control

You can adjust the level of low-frequency sound that is included in the audio track while shooting


Digital Cinema Mode

Set the HD camcorder to Digital Cinema mode to shoot in the progressive 1080/25p format for PAL area. Progressive scanning captures clear, vibrant images with intricate detail. You also get faithful images with an appealing film-like quality


Digital Cinema Color with VIERA

Selecting the Digital Cinema Color mode makes it possible to shoot film-like images that are ideally suited to the Digital Cinema Color of VIERA plasma TVs. Colors recorded in this mode look richer than those recorded using the conventional Panasonic standard. For example, the subtle shades of red and gold in flowers, and the greens of leafy trees are remarkably true to life


Scene Mode

Automatically selects the most suitable shutter speed and aperture for the shooting location and situation. Scene Modes: Sports, Portrait, Low Light, Spot Light, Snow, Beach, Sunset, Fireworks, Scenery, Night Scenery, Night Portrait


Soft Skin Mode

When this function detects skin tones, it softens the focus in that area. This has a skin beautifying effect, which makes wrinkles and lines appear less noticeable. When turned on, this function makes blemishes and moles look less conspicuous, while preserving resolution in areas of the picture outside of the skin



You can shoot macro close-ups while maintaining a distance of 70cm from your subject. In addition, using the zoom at full magnification 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


iA (Intelligent Auto)

This powerful function senses the shooting conditions and automatically makes the settings and activates functions that will deliver optimal results. With both motion and still images, iA does the bothersome settings for you and makes it easy to capture beautiful, well-focused images


Face Recognition

The Face Recognition function recognizes the faces of registered subjects, and automatically optimizes the focus and exposure for those special people. It continues to track the subject as he or she moves anywhere within the LCD frame, making it ideal for video shooting. It is extremely useful for capturing someone's face in a group. Names can also be registered and displayed on the LCD while shooting. A total of six people can be registered, and the names of up to three people at a time can be displayed in the shooting frame


AF/AE Tracking

Touch the LCD screen to indicate the subject, such as a person or an animal, that you want to focus on, and let AF/AE Tracking do the rest. The camera locks on the subject and follows it around, keeping it in sharp focus and properly exposed. It keeps tracking even if the subject turns to the side. This advanced function makes it easy to get a continually clear, beautiful shot of the subject in the scene you care most about


Intelligent Scene Selector

The Intelligent Scene Selector function analyzes the shooting situation and automatically switches the camcorder to the suitable scene mode that will give you optimal results


Face Detection

Face Detection automatically senses the ambient lighting and adjusts the exposure accordingly, so faces are bright and easy to see. The focus also prioritizes the faces, and skin tones are smoothed. Faces in the center of the frame serve as the reference for adjustments, but the function can detect up to 15 faces at once


Intelligent Contrast Control

Intelligent Contrast Control detects the ambient light level and adjusts the exposure accordingly, helping to prevent blown highlights and blocked shadows. You can capture natural looking, highly nuanced images with proper contrast


With a Special iA Mode for Still Images

The iA function is active even when the camera is in still-image mode. When the Intelligent Scene Selector detects the shooting situation, it automatically switches to one of the five Scene modes for still-image shooting, and optimizes the settings for the still image


Manual Ring

The manual ring gives you easy, fingertip control over the focus, zoom and exposure settings. You'll find using the ring a much more intuitive, comfortable, user-friendly process than accessing a menu screen. With the manual ring and manual operation, the HD700 Series is a pleasure to use and gives you the freedom to craft unusually expressive images

Zoom: Just rotate the ring to zoom in and out. You have full control of the zooming speed and can zoom in or out to the precise degree you want


On Screen Assist

Ideal for making fine brightness adjustments that are difficult to see in the LCD. A handy guide for correcting the exposure is shown right in the monitor


Smile Shot

The new Smile Shot function automatically detects subject smiles, and captures the best possible smile while you're shooting movies. It lets you easily catch those fleeting, easy-to-miss stills of a smiling subject. It will also optimize the focus and exposure for your subject's smiling face


Time Lapse Recording

The time lapse function uses longer frame intervals than standard shooting. You can use this function to capture shortened or condensed footage of events that actually take place over a much longer time period. For example, time lapse recording is ideal for shooting a flower in the process of blooming, or a long, slow sunset. With time lapse recording, you have an interesting new video technique to explore


Touch Screen Operation

Control settings are made by simply touching the 3 inch Wide LCD screen. Operation is intuitive and easy, and the large letters are easy to read. Shooting and viewing are simple and stress-free, even for beginners


1 Second Quick Power-On

Switch the power on and the HD camcorders are in standby mode in approx. 1.0 seconds, ready to shoot when you are. When the LCD is closed, the power automatically switches off. This fast start-up and automatic shutdown also help reduce battery consumption


0.6 Second Quick Start

Using Quick Start mode, you simply flip open the LCD and you're ready to shoot in just 0.6 seconds. When Eco mode is also used, the power turns off whenever the camcorder has not been operated for 5 minutes. This reduces wasted power consumption, and enables a longer battery life



The internal hard drive lets you record continuously for up to 102 hours without changing a disc, SDXC/SDHC/SD Memory Card or other recording media

The Anti-Shock Shield protects recorded video data from damage due to jolts and impact


Pre-Rec Function

This smart function records three seconds of images even before you actually begin shooting. The images are held temporarily in the camcorder's internal memory, before recording begins. This helps ensure that you won't miss the start of a moment you want to record, such as when an event begins all of a sudden. For example, if you're waiting to snap a shot of a jumping dolphin, you can press the REC button after you've made sure that the dolphin has cleared the surface of the water. The camcorder will record the entire scene, from the instant of the dolphin's jump until it disappears again into the sea


Auto Power LCD

The LCD brightness can be adjusted manually to suit the surroundings. In Auto Mode, the LCD brightness is adjusted automatically in 16 smooth steps depending on the surroundings. In darker rooms it adjusts to a lower brightness, making it easier to frame the shot. Outside, it adjusts to almost twice the brightness for easy viewing even on sunny days


Wide Viewing Angle

The LCD has a highly detailed, 230,400-dots display and a viewing angle of 170
