Camcorder Description:

Panasonic AG-HMC81 On-Shoulder Camcorder

Panasonic's new AG-HMC81 professional AVCAM HD shoulder-mount camcorder is the first in the company's series of low cost AVCHD camcorders to feature solid state DV as well as HD recording capabilities, ideal for customers who require both formats.

A high-resolution 3-megapixel imager, multiple AVCCAM recording formats, DV support, and enhanced professional functions, the HMC81 offers the full benefits of AVCCAM for schools, event videographers, government facilities, web designers and corporate users who require flexible connectivity and format support in a shoulder mount camcorder.

The AG-HMC81's full HD resolution 3-megapixel 3MOS imager produces stunning 1920 x 1080 or 1280 x 720 AVCHD video with high sensitivity. Because the AVCHD format-based camcorder uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 high profile encoding - which provides a doubling of bandwidth efficiency and improved video performance over the older MPEG-2 compression based formats (e.g HDV) - recordings look clean and crisp, even during fast motion, without image degradation or dropouts.

The HMC81's professional 3-chip imager can also take 10.6 megapixel still images and store them as standard JPEGs on the solid state card. AVCHD recordings and stills can be directly played back from the SD card on a wide range of low-cost players including Panasonic Blu-ray players, laptop PC's and game consoles.

The 81 records video in all four professional AVCCAM HD recording modes, including the highest-quality PH mode (average 21 Mbps/Max 24Mbps), the HA mode (approx.17 Mbps), the HG mode (approx. 13 Mbps) and the extended recording HE mode (approx. 6 Mbps).

At 60Hz the camcorder supports the following HD formats in PH mode: 1080/60i, 1080/30p, 1080/24pN, 720/60p, 720/30p, 720/24pN; in HA and HE modes, it records in 1080/60i. In standard definition DV, the camcorder records 480/60I, 480/30P, 480/24P. Standard definition DV is recorded directly to SD cards in the AVI Type 2 file format and offers squeeze, letter box and side crop options.

For the first time in an AVCCAM shoulder-mount, the HMC81 includes such high-end professional features as; a user-assignable manual focus ring functions (Focus/Iris/Zoom) for added control; time code/UB recording; time/date stamp; and two wired remote control terminals (for zoom, focus, iris, REC start/stop controls). The camcorders lens system captures super sharp images at up to 12X optical zoom and features a 40.8mm (35mm lens equivalent) wide-angle setting. It also offers users useful functions including Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) for smooth stable shooting, Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS), which helps compensate for wide variations in lighting, and a Cine-Like Gamma mode that gives recordings a more film-like look.

The Panasonic AG-HMC81 comes with a 3 years warranty (one plus two extra upon registration of your camera)
