Description

Images shown are for illustrative purposes.

The Panasonic HC-VX870K 4K Ultra HD Camcorder not only captures Ultra HD 4K but also superimposes a secondary Video image from your Smartphone’s camera.

The Panasonic HC-VX870K 4K Ultra HD Camcorder not only captures Ultra HD 4K (3840 x 2160), but it can also superimpose a secondary Video image from your Smartphone‘s camera via a Wi-Fi connection.

In this way, covering two camera angles at once within a single Recording becomes possible.

Key Features

  • 4K Ultra HD Video and 25.9MP Stills
  • 1/2.3″ Back-illuminated MOS Sensor
  • 20x Optical Zoom / 40x Intelligent Zoom
  • HYBRID O.I.S 5-Axis Image Stabilization
  • 1080p Slow-motion Video up to 240 fps
  • HDR (High Dynamic Range) Video Recording
  • Capture 4K Frame Grabs from Video
  • Twin Cam with Wi-Fi and NFC Connectivity
  • IR Night Mode

Other notable features of the Panasonic HC-VX870K 4K Ultra HD Camcorder include a 20x Optical Zoom lens with a 29.5 to 626mm equivalent focal length – giving you a wide angle when zoomed out, a substantial amount of telephoto when zoomed in, and a lot to work with in between.

For slowing down fast action, the Panasonic HC-VX870K 4K Ultra HD Camcorder captures 120 fps native slow-motion at 1080p resolution, which can be slowed down even further using in-camera interpolation – giving you a 240 fps final Video.

Through their lens design partnership with Leica, Panasonic incorporated a Leica Dicomar 20x Optical Zoom lens with four separate Optical groups and a maximum aperture of f/1.8.

To keep excessive image vibration to a minimum, for steadier handheld shooting, the HC-VX870K features Panasonic‘s HYBRID O.I.S.+, which combines Optical and digital Image Stabilization to provide 5-Axis correction.

Adjustable settings allow you to find a stabilization mode most appropriate for the kind of shooting you are doing.

From OFF for tripod work, to Normal for regular handheld work, all the way up to Strong for those times when things really get shaky.

The HC-VX870‘s Wi-Fi does more than let you capture Video from your Smartphone‘s camera as a secondary camera angle.

You can preview a live image on your mobile device using the Panasonic Image App and change camera settings.

If the camera has Internet access, you can even upload web-friendly copies of Video‘s and photos directly to social media websites.

Plus, there’s a Baby Monitor function, which lets you use the camera like an IP surveillance camera, viewing a remote feed across the Internet.

Twin Camera Operation

The HC-VX870 can be connected to your Smartphone via Wi-Fi and used as a secondary camera.

With this functionality, you can shoot from alternate distances or angles for a variety of picture-in-picture images.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) Movie Mode

By combining two images taken at different exposure times, the HDR Movie function suppresses blown highlights and blocked shadows for crisper, clearer Video‘s.

With HDR you can maintain gradation in your images in difficult shooting situations, like when your subject is back-lit.

Baby Calendar / Stop-Motion Animation Assist

Set the Baby‘s name and birthday to display thumbnail images of scenes recorded on and around that date, making it easy to find the scenes you want.

By moving the subject slightly and shooting still images, you can create a unique animated slideshow.

Previously taken photos are displayed with an onion skin effect for easy layering.

Creative Control

Built-in filter effects including Miniature, 8mm Movie, Silent Movie, and Time Lapse Recording let you match your Video Recording‘s to the shooting situation.

Full HD Slow-motion Video

The HC-VX870K records Full HD (1920 x 1080) Video at 120 fps.

For a more dramatic Slow-motion effect, the Crystal Engine’s Intelligent Frame Creation interpolates frames to achieve an equivalent of 240 fps.

You can easily switch to slow motion while Recording with a simple touch on the LCD screen.

High-Speed Precision Autofocus

The image Sensor has a 60 fps readout enabling quick focusing speed, stability, and tracking performance.

Level Shot Function

Level Shot automatically detects and corrects tilting in images.

It can be adjusted to three different levels-OFF, Normal or Strong-depending on shooting conditions.

5-Axis HYBRID OIS

Stabilized on 5 axes (pan, tilt, and roll axes, plus horizontal and vertical directions), the HYBRID OIS suppresses blurring in your Video‘s when not using a tripod or other stabilizer.
