The Panasonic HC-VXF995 combines 4K video quality with an ultra-portable body design that makes it the perfect camcorder to capture anything and everything from family holidays and travel videography to professional productions with multi-camera setups.

Ultra-High-Resolution 4K Video

4K video offers four times the resolution of HD video resulting in razor-sharp footage that can be enjoyed for many years to come. The VXF995 shoots incredibly high quality 4K footage that captures fine detail and offers you increased flexibility when editing your video project. You can even export a single frame from UHD footage as an 8-Megapixel still image, with enough resolution for printing and sharing.

Crystal Engine 4K and Back-side Illuminated Sensor

To handle the amount of the pixel information required for 4K video the camera uses a high-speed crystal engine LSI that processes image data with speed and accuracy while also delivering excellent noise reduction performance. The 1/2.3-inch sensor inside the camcorder uses a BSI (Back Side Illuminated) design that provides improved light sensitivity and an increased readout speed that supports UHD video and supresses rolling shutter distortion.

20x Optical Zoom LEICA Dicomar Lens

The high-performance LEICA lens in to the camcorder produces sharp footage with fine detail and excellent resolution. With a bright maximum aperture of f/1.8 at the wide end of the lens the camera handles a range of lighting conditions well, even low-light shooting situations, allowing you to get the shot no matter where you are.

5-Axis Stabilisation with Auto O.I.S. Lock and Level Shot

A built-in image stabilisation system compensates for 5 different types of rotation allowing you to capture smoother footage without blur, whether your shooting wide or zoomed in. The level shot function can automatically adjust shots when the accelerometer and gyrosensor detect tilt while the Auto O.I.S. lock detects when to use improved stabilisation, for example when shooting zoomed in, and increases the compensation area for better results.

Live 4K Cropping and In-camera Editing

By using the live 4K cropping mode you can edit your footage in-camera for great looking videos ready to share faster. The mode makes use of the increased 4K resolution footage to create Full HD that incorporate camera movement.

• The Smooth Zoom allows you to slowly zoom into your shot to add camera movement to a still scene. 
• Exact Panning means you can move between two points in your scene, great for left to right landscape shots or for when you want to shift your framing between two subjects. 
• Using Easy Tracking you can select a subject within your shot for the camera to zoom in and follow, while keeping them always in the frame. Ideal for dance recitals or plays to follow any movement in the scene. 
• The Tracking Stabiliser helps to reduce shaky footage, especially when shot with telephoto zooms, for smoother and more watchable results.

4K Photo Mode

A huge benefit of the camera shooting with a 4K resolution is the ability to export a frame from that video with a resolution equal to an 8.3 megapixel still. This can be a distinct advantage when you want a photo of a group of people but it seems impossible to time it so everyone’s eyes are open at the same time. Just film a second or two of video and then choose the best moment to print.

High Dynamic Range Shooting Mode

With a built-in HDR Mode the video camera handles less than ideal lighting situations with ease by making use of a multiple exposure technique. Two sets of frames with different exposures are captured and then combined to create evenly exposed video with natural colours.

Cinema Style Effects

The Panasonic HC-VXF995 offers a series of built-in cinema-like effects to allow you to improve the quality of your productions in-camera without the fuss of expensive post-production gear. From slow motion to dolly zooms the integrated effects are effective tools that allow you to be more creative.

• The Slow Quick and Slow Motion modes allow you to add either slow or fast motion you’re your scenes with the press of a button. You can speed your footage up or down depending on the selected mode. 
• The Slow Zoom mode creates a subtle cinematic effect that can bring static shots to life by adding a gradual zoom in, ideal for keeping your audience’s attention for longer establishing shots or dialogue heavy scenes. 
• The Slow-Motion mode is one of the most useful film styles to instantly create ultra-smooth dreamy moody footage. 
• Dolly Zoom is designed to be used with a dolly to create classic push pull or vertigo effect where the background of your shot zooms but your subject stays the same size in the centre of the frame.

Tiltable EVF and 3-Inch articulating LCD Screen

Designed to assist when shooting in bright conditions the camera features an 1555k-dot electronic viewfinder that extends out and tilts upwards for customisable comfort. The 3-Inch touch LCD flip screen provides more options to frame your shots, giving you the freedom to explore new creative perspectives.

Wireless Wi-Fi Features

• Live Preview with Wi-Fi that allows you to preview your framing in real-time on a mobile device using the Panasonic Image App. You can transfer images and videos to your mobile and share them instantly with your family and friends. 
• Wireless Multi Cam allows you to record picture-in-picture videos on the camcorder via Wi-Fi from of up to two mobile devices, this lets you capture fun additional angles and is great for behind the scene content and reality TV style productions.
• The Wi-Fi capability of the HC-VXF995 also allows you to stream live video via USTREAM over the internet* while also recording to the camera at the same time. 
• You can even set the camera up as a baby monitor that streams through your home network direct to your mobile device*, that notifies you if it detects a sound or movement making it perfect for home security and monitoring.

5.1 Surround Sound Audio

Using an in-built 5.1 Channel Surround Stereo microphone the camera captures realistic sounds from all directions even while zooming allowing you to add immersive sound to your videos for an even better home theatre experience.

Compact and Portable Design

Packed to the brim with professional features, the Panasonic VXF 995 is ultra-portable, compact and easy to handle. By driving the four optical element groups separately the required lens length is reduced, allowing for a super compact body design. With everything you need to shoot incredible video recordings, it is a great camcorder for families, amateurs and budding videographers who want to shoot on the move.
