Panasonic HDC-SX5 Hi-Def Camcorder

Never Miss a Detail with 1920x1080 Full-HD Recording
Images recorded by conventional HD camcorders have only 1,440 horizontal pixels, while full-HD camcorders have 1,920. That's about 30 percent more recording pixels! The result is a level of detail and resolution that goes beyond anything you've ever experienced before. And because full-HD recordings contain a vast amount of picture information, they look beautiful not only on high-definition TVs, but on standard-definition TVs as well.

Advanced O.I.S. Reduces Camera Shake
Camera shake happens. Unsteady hands, shooting while in motion: these factors can reduce the quality of your video. But Panasonic has developed its best-ever built-in Optical Image Stabilization, which compensates for hand-shake and helps keep your videos crisp, steady and blur-free.

World-Class Leica Lens Delivers Superior HD Images
The HDC-SX5 comes with a world-class Leica Dicomar lens, fashioned specifically for high-definition digital camcorders. The superior craftsmanship of Leica's advanced lens system captures stunning images and colors that look magnificent in HD. Combined with Panasonic's advanced 3CCD system, which uses three separate sensors to capture and process light, you can relive your memories in lifelike detail on your HDTV screen.

Multi-Format Hi-Def Recording
Because the HDC-SX5 records on both SD Memory Card and DVD, you can capture your memories on an SD card and transfer the video to DVD right in the camcorder. You can then view it on your Panasonic HDTV via an HDMI connection, or you can play your DVD in a Panasonic Blu-ray Disc™ player.
