Panasonic HC-VX1 4K Camcorder

Capturing clear action images with the Panasonic HC-VX1 4K Camcorder is no problem due to the large MOS sensor, the bright F1.8 lens and the fast autofocus with high precision. Capture the excitement with the 25mm wide angle and the 24x optical zoom of the new 4K lens. The optimized HYBRID O.I.S. image stabilization minimizes saturation even during zooming. Filming in 4K resolution yields very natural and realistic images. With the 4K Photo function you can easily capture your favorite moment in a photo.

4K Premium Image Quality

Great videos in low light conditions. The large 1/2.5-inch sensor and the bright F1.8 lens offer approximately 1.7 times the conventional low-light performance. Noise is also suppressed even when shot in dimly lit environments such as scenes inside or nightscapes.

Wide-angle lens of 25 mm and 24x optical zoom

The new 4K lens has a range of 25mm wide-angle to 600mm telephoto zoom with a 24x optical zoom. The beautiful wide-angle position ensures that a large group of people and the background fit into the frame. In addition, it is useful for capturing selfies in combination with the rotating LCD.


The optical image stabilizer is an improved version of the previous 5-axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ by the addition of the Ball O.I.S. system and the Adaptive O.I.S.

Adaptive O.I.S.

The Adaptive O.I.S. automatically optimizes the effectiveness of the O.I.S. by adjusting the mechanical O.I.S. based on recording position and conditions and user characteristics.

Ball O.I.S. System

The Ball O.I.S. system reduces wear on the drive system and significantly improves the correction of minor hand vibrations.

Level Shot Function

Automatically detects and corrects the tilt of captured images.

Extremely accurate 4K AF

Enjoy high speed, excellent tracking performance and stability. With Custom AF you can choose from three focus modes.

Active contrast

Smoothes the gradation automatically in response to the brightness distribution within the image.

4K Cropping

When recording in 4K, your goals will be framed without blur, because you can edit the images in the camera and save them in Full-HD.

Cinematic effect

Enables Dolly Zoom and other professional recording techniques used in motion pictures.
