Panasonic trims line-up, drops hard disk models

Panasonic this week launched its 2012 range of camcorders. This year, the company has trimmed its product line-up and dropped its hard disk-based models instead opting for non-moving flash memory. As can be expected, the Panasonic camcorder range has added a number of new features designed to capture user interest.

Heading up the range is the HC-X900M, which is powered by a new 3MOS, three-chip processing engine that is said to improve video quality by the way its sensor handles greens. Apparently it works by offsetting by half a pixel images captured by the green sensor. This is the sensor responsible for capturing the most detail and tonalities. It shoots video in 1080p at 60fps and includes a new larger 3.5-inch high-res viewfinder.

Joining the flagship model are the HC-V700-series, the HC-V500-series and the entry-level V100. All the models use a new 3.5-megapixel back-side illuminated sensor also paired with a new processing engine. The V-700 models come with a 21x zoom capability, and 460K LCD. The V-500 models offer 38x zoom and a 3-inch 230K LCD, while the V100 offers 34x zoom.

Pricing and availability are still to be detailed.
