4K Video Recording

High Image Quality and Sensitivity with a 1.0-type (inch) 4K Sensor An effective 1.0-type (inch) sensor (approx. 9.46 Mpx at 4K 24p and 8.79 Mpx at UHD, FHD) is balanced with depth of field, picture quality, and sensitivity. This enables multi-format 4K 24p, UHD 60p/50p and FHD 60p/50p recording.

Newly Developed LEICA DICOMAR 4K Lens

Industry's Widest 24 mm Lens and Optical 20x Zoom In addition to the industry's widest 24 mm wide angle lens, models with the 1.0-type (inch) sensor feature the world's first optical 20x zoom. By fitting the 20x optical zoom in a compact body, the four lens group drive achieves high picture quality. 35mm equivalent. At 4K 24p (aspect ratio 17:9). 25.4mm at UHD/FHD (aspect ratio 16:9). World's first camcorder with an integrated lens and a sensor larger than 1.0-type (inch). (As of July 2016)

Professional 4K Camcorder with High Mobility

In spite of its many professional functions, such as the Triple Manual Ring, ND Filter, XLR Terminals, and Dual SD Card Slot, this compact design enables stable, handheld shooting. Ideal for field work where mobility is a must.

Intelligent AF

High-Speed, High-Precision AF Technology in 4K For critical 4K focusing, high-speed, precise, and stable AF performance is achieved by a Micro Drive Focus Unit. AF settings can also be customized to adjust speed, tracking sensitivity, and area width. This matches the user's intended AF operation to the subject and application.

Advanced O.I.S. for Clear, Blurless Results

The correction area was expanded to 900% of the conventional area to strongly correct low- and high-angle shots. In FHD mode, 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. thoroughly suppresses blurring on wide angle to powerful zoom shots, for crisp, clear images. Except 4K 24p mode. Compared with Panasonic's AG-AC160.
