Versatile 4K 60p Performance
The industry's smallest and lightest integrated lens 4K 60p camcorder packs remarkable optical performance and professional functionality into a mobile, compact body with no compromise in image quality
4K 60p with High Mobility and Operability
Industry Lightest (1.2kg Body), Lowest (14.4W) Power Consumption, High Operability Layout Design
Optical 24x Zoom and Fast Face Detection AF
Wide 25mm (4K/FHD), iZoom 48x (FHD)/32x (4K), 4K High Precision AF, Face Detection AF/AE, 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. (UHD/FHD)
Pro Quality 4K Shooting with New Engine
1/2.5-type 8.29M MOS Sensor, 422 10 bit: 4K 30p/25p, FHD 60p, 4K 60p 420 10bit (HEVC)
Industry's Smallest and Lightest 4K 60p Director's Camcorder
While excelling in mobility & portability, the compact body considers weight balance of the advanced functions when shooting.
Panasonic X1500 is a small lightweight 4K 60p professional video camera. Offering the on-site mobility and portability demanded by professionals, it enables high-quality 4K 60p recording. Achieving high-spec optical performance with a wide-angle 25mm*2 lens and 32x i.ZOOM (4K recording), Panasonic's exclusive high-precision AF provides high-speed, accurate focusing for both 4K and Full-HD shooting. X1500 is packed with professional functions, such as Two Manual Rings, an ND Filter, a Built-in LED Video Light, and 24-bit High Resolution Linear PCM Audio Recording. For video recording, 4:2:2 10bit Internal Recording*3 and the new, high-efficiency HEVC codec are supported. The best of various recording formats can also be selected and built-in Wi-Fi supports HD Live Streaming.
Flexible Framing with 25mm* Wide-Angle and 24x Optical Zoom
The lens covers the range from 25mm wide-angle to 600mm tele with a 24x zoom. i.ZOOM achieves 32x zoom with 4K resolution, and 48x zoom with FHD.
* 35mm camera equivalent.
Face detection helps you keeping the focus on your main subject - even when it is turned sideways to the camera. Distance and exposure are being tracked precicely incorporating the live data read-out from the sensor and sophisticated colour recognition.
5-axis HYBRID Image Stabilisation
In addition to the Optical Image Stabilisation in the lens, Electronic Image Stabilisation detects and corrects camera shake. The lens O.I.S. System incorporates balls to drive the motor, which reduces friction and improves the correction of blurring caused through natural hand held camera shake.
4:2:2 10-bit Internal Recording
Allowing you to capture more colour information in 4:2:2 10-bit, the HC-X1500 supports 10-bit Full HD in 59.94p/50p (100 Mbps) and 4K-recording in 29.97p/25p (200 Mbps) on SD-card. Via HDMI-output, you can record 4K/10-bit files even in 59.94p/50p.
Full-HD Live Streaming
RTSP/RTP/RTMP/RTMPS-compatible HD streaming enables direct connection and distribution of relays for concerts, sports events, and news flashes to Facebook, YouTube, etc.
* The handle unit and mic are optional.
Wireless Control from a Tablet or Smartphone
A Wi-Fi module is built-in, so Wi-Fi connection of only the body is possible. Using a tablet or smartphone app HC ROP, wireless camera settings, and lens control are also possible.
Two Manual Rings
Two Manual Rings are provided, one for focusing and the other for zoom or iris operation. The use of the Manual Rings is improved by using different-sized rings in the front and rear, so they can be distinguished by the fingers.
