Panasonic HC-X800 Review

The Panasonic X800 with a 7.5 cm LCD screen, and 3MOS sensors records Full HD 1920 x 1080p (50p) to an SD card and with an adaptor and step up ring will record 3D as well as 2D and is an upgrade to the  HDC-SD800 camcorder.

A manual control ring gives a degree of professional control, and is complimented with a 2 channel zoom microphone with wind noise correction and a new optical image stabilizer which now has five axes of correction.

Panasonic HC-X800 with Hybrid O.I.S.
The HC-X800 hybrid optical image stabilizer with five-axis correction keeps shots in sharp focus from full wide angle to full zoom in most situations even the hand shake action when walking.

7.5 cm (3.0″) Touch Screen LCD
The HC-X800 features a 7.5 cm (3.0″) Touch Screen LCD 3D-compatible LCD. This makes it possible to shoot 3D images while checking 3D effects without having to use any special equipment and offers intuitive touch operation.

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.* HC-X800 only.

For quick zoom while recording video, touch the screen with a finger tip. For quick focus when taking stills, touch the LCD screen to automatically activate the Touch Shutter function.

The fingertip action also works during video review through the LCD screen, just slide the fingers over the screen to scroll to the desired frames as you would with a cell phone.

Advanced 3MOS Sensor
Pixel shift technology achieves high-speed processing that is equivalent to four times the pixel count of Full-HD pixels of the SD800.

F1.5 Leica Dicomar Lens
This lens minimizes the distortion and degradation of contrast and resolution that tend to occur at the lens periphery with a special nano surface coating. By forming a nano-level, microstructure film with an ultra-low refractive index onto the lens surface, the reflection of incident light is dramatically reduced and suppresses ghosting and flare. In addition, the 29.8mm wide-angle setting is especially handy for recording indoors or in tight spaces.

Crystal Engine Pro II Processor
By using the Crystal Engine Pro II to perform high-speed processing of the huge number of pixels – approximately equivalent to four times the pixel count of Full-HD that are obtained with pixel shift technology, superb Full-HD image quality is achieved even in detailed image parts.

To record 3D video with the Panasonic HC-X800, attach an optional VW-CLT2 3D conversion lens for texture and depth. In post production, video recorded in 2D can be converted for playback into 3D with the 2D to 3D Conversion Function.

Panasonic X800 with 2D to 3D Conversion

To watch video recorded with the Panasonic HC-X800
in 2D but converted to 3D for viewing, connect the Panasonic X800 to the 3D compatible TV via an HTMI cable and the image processing engine does the conversion for you for an enhanced viewing experience. For fast and easy editing, recorded video can be down converted similar to what Canon camcorders offer.

3.0 out of 5 stars
Crisp image, great features, just a little washed out. 7 May 2012
A really easy to use ‘point and shoot’ camcorder with some nice extra features should you wish to get more involved with your filming (adjusting white balance, manual focus, iris settings etc). Light, and small enough to carry in a coat pocket. Battery life around 90 mins. Zoom is very good, assisted by good image stabilisation. The still image quality is pretty…….read the FULL REVIEW of the Panasonic X800 by J. Hyde here.
