EXTENDED, HIGH-QUALITY HD RECORDING ONTO A MEMORY CARD WITH
Leica Dicomar Lens with Wide-Angle
and 12x Zoom Range
The glass-molded, ultra high refractive index, aspherical lens
enables wide-angle shots with a wide end of 38.5mm
(35mm conversion) from a compact unit. So even with 12x
optical zoom*, you can shoot with superb HD image quality.
Featuring 13 individual lens elements arranged in 10 groups,
the Leica Dicomar lens is specifically designed for HD
shooting. The lens elements are made of low dispersion glass
to assure low chromatic aberration and high resolution.
A total of 21 multi-coated lens surfaces minimize flare

Optical Image Stabilizer Compensates for Hand-Shake
The AG-HMC70 series advanced Optical Image Stabilizer
(OIS) compensates for hand shaking that occurs as you shoot.
Gyro sensors detect hand-shake and send signals to a linear
motor, which adjusts the lens to compensate. Because this
process takes place prior to the CCD image capture
(rather than in the downstream electronic processing), it
virtually eliminates any effect of hand-shake on resolution and
The OIS can also be helpful when zooming or shooting in dim
lighting. It's perfect for those Run & Gun applications.
* Due to particularly large vibrations caused by hand-shake or other conditions, blurring may not be
eliminated. * Depending on shooting conditions, no large difference may appear.
1/4-inch Progressive CCD Faithfully Reproduces Colours
To assure high sensitivity,
Panasonic developed a 1/4-
inch progressive CCD.
Enlarging the area of each
CCD pixel enables high-
sensitivity shots in light as
low 6 lux. This lets you shoot
dark scenes with minimal noise.
High-Precision Progressive Scan
In the AG-HMC70 series camera section, the progressive CCD
creates native progressive images with outstanding vertical
resolution. Progressive interlace conversion is then used to
provide image quality that is higher than you get with
conventional electronic interpolation of interlaced signals.
Progressive 3D noise reduction also dramatically reduces
noise and after-images.
