Panasonic Seminar for advanced 4K Professional Cameras
As photographers and videographers world over increasingly switch to 4K technology to capture the sharpest video footage and to edit without fear of losing quality, Panasonic Marketing Middle East and Africa (PMMAF) has launched an awareness event to educate professional videographers and photographers from Jeddah and Riyahdh to the possibilities and benefits of 4 K and other cutting-edge technologies.
While Panasonic’s flagship models the Lumix DMC-GH4 and Full-HD camcorder the HC-MDH2 will be showcased, the key highlight will be the HC-X1000 camcorder which expands Panasonic’s growing lineup of 4K solutions.
The HC-X1000 offers semi-pro features inside a small, handheld body while still offering the professional look of a more complex shoulder mount broadcast model. Featuring a LEICA Dicomar lens alongside a new sensor and Crystal Engine Pro 4K, the HC-X1000 produces stunning, lifelike images in Ultra HD 4K resolution which is ideal for shooting high quality documentaries and events in 4K and Cinema 4K formats.
The superb 4K recording capabilities offered by the HC-X1000 also provides a lot more flexibility in the editing suite. 4K allows you to crop your composition and choose the perfect frame, as well as zoom 200 per cent while maintaining HD quality; turn stationary footage into panning shots; tilt and level the footage; or easily stabilize your film.
The DMC-GH4 is a firmware to enhance the performance and controllability of the camera, featuring the latest 4K photo mode that encourages a new way of photography first proposed by Panasonic. It encourages users to capture spur-of-the-moment, high resolution, 4K photos by cropping out a designated frame from a 4K video. With the new firmware for DMC-GH4, it is easier to get 4K photo by using the dedicated mode. Furthermore, 4K video can be recorded continuously with Loop Rec function which keeps on saving 5 newest 2-minute video files before you press record. This means users can patiently wait for the perfect photo opportunity to come along for as long as they want through keeping the camera recording.
The HC-MDH2, on the other hand, is equipped with the Simultaneous Recording function which allows recording on dual memory devices while a 5-Axis Hybrid function O.I.S. & Level Shot Function thoroughly suppresses blurring and tilting. With greater advanced shooting performance design and operability, photographers can shoot still photos in 20 megapixel resolution and videos in Full HD or in Standard Definition format. Moreover, the LCD is positioned with the most suitable distance from the photographer enabling him to spot certain special moments that need to be captured in peripheral vision.
