Additional Information

AVCCAM - the Industry's Next Generation Affordable HD

Panasonic's latest introduction to its popular AVCCAM line; the AG-HMC40 handheld; combines full HD AVCHD video recording with high-resolution 10.6-megapixel still photo capture; giving you the benefits of two professional cameras in one affordable package.

Compact and lightweight at 2.16-pounds; the HMC40 is a versatile HD camcorder offering high-quality AVCHD recordings; high-resolution still photo capture; an easy-to-use SD card workflow; and professional audio capabilities for a wide range of applications and markets including schools; government agencies; event videographers; web designers and more.

Full HD Video & 10.6-Megapixel Stills -- All in One Compact Camera

With a full resolution 3-megapixel; 1/4-inch 3MOS imager; the HMC40 produces stunning 1920x1080 video in AVCHD (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264); delivering images far superior to HDV. When used for digital still photography; the camera captures photos with 10.6-megapixel resolution directly onto the SD card as a JPEG image. The camera can also be connected directly to a PictBridge photo printer (no PC required). And unlike HDV tapes; video and photos can be accessed randomly and immediately from the SD cards and played back on a number of consumer devices.

The camcorder's advanced Leica Dicomar lens system offers 12X optical zoom; wide-angle setting (40.8mm) and an optical image stabilizer (O.I.S.) feature for precise shooting. The compact camera is also packed with professional video and audio features (HDMI out; date/time stamp; remote zoom; XLR option; etc.)

High Definition Performance; Standard Definition Price

Using high-capacity SD memory cards; the HMC40 provides hours of beautiful high definition recordings at professional level bit rates. It records in a range of 1080 and 720 formats with all four professional AVCCAM recording modes: PH mode (average 21 Mbps/Max 24Mbps); the HA mode (approx.17 Mbps); the HG mode (approx.13 Mbps); HE mode (approx. 6 Mbps). AVCCAM offers the benefit of a fast; file-based workflow using widely available and reasonably priced SD memory cards.
