Full-HD SD Card Camcorder with Intelligent Zoom, a wide-angle lens and 3D capability

Panasonic’s High Definition HDC-SD90 camcorder features a 3D shooting capability via an optional 3D conversion lens. It also offers a 28mm wide-angle lens, 40x Intelligent Zoom, the newly developed Hybrid O.I.S, a 3” touch screen and iA (Intelligent Auto). These slim and stylish camcorders are perfect for anyone who is looking for incredible 2D image quality and 3D options.

Full-HD 1920 x 1080, 50 Progressive Recording and SDXC/SDHC/SD memory card compatible

Progressive recording conveys about twice the information of 1080i (interlace) recording to produce the ultimate in image quality, even exceeding conventional Full-HD images. It minimises after images and flickering caused by subject motion and renders crisp, detailed images. 64GB SDXC card (optional) can record approximately 27 hours 30 minutes of 1920 x 1080i high definition video in HE mode and approximately 5 hours 20 minutes of 1920 x 1080p full high definition video in 1080/50p mode.

3D image shooting with the 3D conversion lens

Dynamic 3D content can now be created and experienced first hand using Panasonic’s optional 3D conversion lens, the VW-CLT1. In natural vision, people see slightly different images with their right and left eyes. This visual disparity is artificially produced for 3D images so that the brain will interpret it as depth and solid-appearing objects. The VW-CLT1 records right and left-eye images simultaneously through its two lenses. The right and left images (each with 960 x 1080 pixels) that enter through the lenses are recorded using the side-by-side method.

Hybrid O.I.S. means that when your hands are shaky, your film won’t be

HYBRID OIS (Optical Image Stabiliser) helps reduce blur due to arm and hand shake with a lens in the optical system and a sensor in the electrical system. This detects blurring caused not only by vertical or horizontal wrist movements, but also the subtle blurring that occurs when the entire arm moves vertically or horizontally. It also achieves powerful correction during zooming, even on the move.

Get more in the frame with a wide-angle lens and Intelligent Zoom

The 28mm wide-angle lens is fantastic for recording indoors or in tight spaces, making it possible to shoot your subject at a close distance and still be able to fit the surrounding area into the frame. It also means the voice of the subject can be clearly recorded, which is an important element in video recordings. Meanwhile, the optical zoom feature ensures magnificent images because it causes no degradation in image quality. In addition, the Intelligent Zoom provides a super-powerful 40x zooming capability, achieving stunningly clear Full-HD images even at high zoom levels.

Let iA (Intelligent Auto) do all the hard work

The iA (Intelligent Auto) mode features the special Face Recognition function that recognises the faces of previously registered subjects and automatically optimises the focus and exposure for those people. iA even continues to track the subjects as they move anywhere within the LCD frame, making it ideal for video shooting.

Easy to operate touch-screen technology

For shooting convenience, this camcorders offers 3” LCD screen with advanced Touch Operation. This allows for extremely smooth shooting and playback  (including Touch Zoom, to swiftly move in and out at the touch of a finger) and Touch Shutter, where you automatically focus and take a photo by touching the subject on the screen.

Share your memories via your favourite social networking sites

For easier sharing of your memories, the included software makes it quick and easy to upload your videos to YouTube and Facebook. For added convenience, the SD90 also supports the iFrame (960 x 540/30p) video recording format, which is optimal for Mac users to import quickly and maintain small file sizes.
