The Panasonic WXF1 camcorder will delight the 4K video enthusiast in the family with cinema-like recording experience. These semi-professional features include an electronic eye viewfinder and quick access buttons to Variable White Balance, Focus Expand and Peeking and Custom Autofocus, plus a manual lens mounted control ring. Improved optical and sensor performance is backed up by a new LEICA DICOMAR 24X optical zoom lens (25-600mm) with a bright aperture range from F1.8 wide - 4.0 tele, and a large 1/2.5” BSI MOS Sensor for impressive capture even in low light. To keep the image rock stable, three unique optical image stabilization technology work together; 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+, Ball O.I.S., and Adaptive O.I.S. For a more natural look, the WXF1 has a new Active Contrast technology equalizes gradation, while the HDR Movie mode enables a wider dynamic range response.

4K High-Precision AF

Enjoy high-speed, excellent tracking performance and stability. With Custom AF, you can also choose from three focus modes.

Active Contrast

Automatically equalizes the gradation in response to the brightness distribution within the image.

4K Cropping

When shooting in 4K, your subjects stay framed, without blurring, because you can edit the images in the camera and save them in Full-HD.

Cinema-Like Effect

Allows Dolly Zoom and other professional-like shooting techniques used in cinema films.

Wide 25mm and Optical 24x Zoom Lens

The New 4K lens covers the range from 25mm wide-angle to 600mm tele with a 24x zoom achieved by a 4-Drive Lens System. The stunning wide-angle setting not only fits large groups of people and background images into narrow locations but is also convenient for taking selfies with a rotatable LCD.

Brilliant 4K Image Quality

Capture excellent low-light performance with a large 1/2.5-inch sensor and bright F1.8 lens. The remarkable LEICA Dicomar lens produces the subtle nuances and shading that LEICA lenses are renowned for. These high-quality core technologies take 4K image production to the next level.

5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. +

Uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring all the way from wide-angle to powerful zoom shots.

Adaptive O.I.S.

Automatically optimizes the O.I.S. effectiveness by adjusting the O.I.S. mechanical control to various shooting positions, conditions, and user characteristics.

Ball O.I.S.

Reduces wear on the drive section, and greatly improves correction for small-amplitude hand-shake.

Level Shot Function

Automatically detects and corrects the tilting of captured images.

For Enthusiasts and Pros Alike

The Tiltable Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) lets you easily shoot in bright daylight, while contributing to proper viewing. The intuitive Manual Ring enables fast, professional-like ring operation for fine-tuning the focus, zoom, and iris.
