Full-HD Beauty Meets High Sensitivity
The Panasonic HC-V785 Camcorder incorporates the high-end specs of first-rate units into a compact body to achieve premium picture quality even in dimly lit scenarios. Designed to combine the beauty of HD with the clarity of a high-sensitivity BSI MOS Sensor, the V785 benefits from a much larger effective area with 34% larger pixels compared to a commonly used 1/5.8-inch sensor. The 1/2.3-inch Sensor with 12.76M Total Pixels impressively suppresses noise even in your indoor scenes and nightscapes.
Added Auto OIS Lock Feature
Designed to further enhance user experience, Panasonic has taken customer feedback from the popular V770 predecessor to improve OIS on the Panasonic HC-V785 Camcorder. With conventional OIS locks, users are required to press and hold buttons for stronger stability. With Panasonic’s improved Auto OIS Lock feature, the V785 controls image stability strength by automatic discrimination. This camcorder detects scenes needing strong stability, (when zooming or walking, for example) and automatically activates the OIS Lock – so you can shoot confidently knowing you’re capturing all of the action.
Premium Audio with Wind Protection
Audio is just as important as the picture when it comes to videography. Thankfully, Panasonic doesn’t let audio become an afterthought. Built into the V785 are four 6mm-diameter, high-S/N mics and aluminum electrolytic capacitors that are designed to reduce sound distortion and increase clarity. The added windshield and buffering material inserted between the ECM and the Mic Net also prevent wind from striking the microphone and reduce unwanted noise.
Users can also be sure to capture audio ‘just as they hear it’ by using the Sound Scene feature to automatically alter frequency characteristics depending on their environment. This makes it easier to capture the ambient sounds of nature or the ear-piercing festival bass without experiencing distortion.
Greater Creative Control
Whilst the V785 takes leaps into more convenient, automated technology, Panasonic also empowers users with the creative freedom of manual preferences and idiosyncrasies. Included on the V785 are Intelligent Auto, Intelligent Auto Plus, Creative Control, HDR Movie, Scene, manual, HD Slow Motion and Stop Motion Animation Assist modes. For every automated response, Panasonic provides a counterpart for manual adjustments.
Creative Control mode also allows users to experiment with different effects. You can choose between Miniature Effect, Silent Movie, 8mm Movie, and Time-Lapse Recording modes to replicate popular shooting styles and find your favorites.
