Product Details

Overview
New, Lightweight AVCCAM Camcorder with Full-HD Images and Advanced Functions

Sharp, Crisp Rendering of Every Subject. New Leica Dicomar Lens
Featuring 13 elements in 10 groups, the newly developed Leica Dicomar lens is ideal for full-HD recording. The new lens system uses low-dispersion glass and aspherical lenses to reduce colour aberration and boost resolution. Use of a special multi-coating process dramatically reduces flare and ghosts. The result: sharp, crisp, beautifully rendered pictures with vivid colours, delicate nuances, and exceptional shading. This advanced lens also lets you capture 40.8mm wide-angle shots (35mm lens equivalent) - unusual for such a compact unit.

Up to 120x Zoom Power. 12x Optical Zoom and 10x Digital Zoom
Even at the 490mm zoom setting (35mm lens equivalent), this advanced 12x optical zoom lens is free of image degradation. And the AG-HMC41 is also equipped with a digital zoom that instantly magnifies the...

About the Panasonic AG-HMC41E camcorder

New, Lightweight AVCCAM Camcorder with Full-HD Images and Advanced Functions

Sharp, Crisp Rendering of Every Subject. New Leica Dicomar Lens
Featuring 13 elements in 10 groups, the newly developed Leica Dicomar lens is ideal for full-HD recording. The new lens system uses low-dispersion glass and aspherical lenses to reduce colour aberration and boost resolution. Use of a special multi-coating process dramatically reduces flare and ghosts. The result: sharp, crisp, beautifully rendered pictures with vivid colours, delicate nuances, and exceptional shading. This advanced lens also lets you capture 40.8mm wide-angle shots (35mm lens equivalent) - unusual for such a compact unit.

Up to 120x Zoom Power. 12x Optical Zoom and 10x Digital Zoom
Even at the 490mm zoom setting (35mm lens equivalent), this advanced 12x optical zoom lens is free of image degradation. And the AG-HMC41 is also equipped with a digital zoom that instantly magnifies the image by any of three fixed values. 2x, 5x or 10x. Use it together with the 12x optical zoom lens, and you get super magnification equivalent to a 120x zoom, without the drop in light intensity that happens when using a lens extender.

Highly Nuanced Image Expression. 3.05-megapixel Progressive 3MOS Sensors
The progressive 3MOS image sensors record full-HD images with a total, 3.05-megapixel (approx.) resolution [effective motion-image resolution of 2.51 megapixels (approx.)]. This produces full-raster HD images with high resolution and superb image quality. Because each of the three separate image sensors receives one of the three primary colours of light (red, green and blue), they render more precise images and more faithful colours than
the single light-receiving 1MOS sensor.

High-quality Digital Stills. Still Shots with 10.6-megapixel Resolution (approx.)
The new 3MOS sensors also combine with Panasonic's proprietary Quad-Density Pixel Distribution technology to achieve a resolution that is equivalent to 4 times the normal level. The AG-HMC41 captures still images with approx. 10.6-megapixel resolution (in still image mode, 3:2 aspect ratio), which approaches the level of a high-performance digital still camera. For example, you can use it to shoot both motion and still images for a website.

Hello I am interested in getting this camcorder but concerned to how i can connect and capture footage from it to final cut pro without a firewire socket? Please can you let me know asap so i can order it. Thanks

This camera records on to SD / SDHC memory cards. To transfer this material to your computer, you can either connect the camera via USB or use a USB card reader:-http://www.creativevideo.co.uk/index.php?t=product/eclipse_iou2media50rdHowever, you should first check that the version of Final Cut you are using supports AVCHD media. FCP v7 supports it but not natively:-http://documentation.apple.com/en/finalcutpro/professionalformatsandworkflows/index.html#chapter=6%26section=2%26tasks=true
