I decided to climb the Wallace monument in Stirling to show off the new Panasonic 4K HC-X1000 camcorder and it did not disappoint.
Fortunately on the way up you have wee rooms to take a rest.
I had my trusty colleague Graham with me and we were truly puffed by the time we reached the top.
The view and the weather was to say the least stunning, perfect for 4K 50p footage and the 20x optical zoom did not disappoint.
Update : I am hoping to have the Panasonic HC-X1000 Video Review online by Friday 12th December, it’s a bit more in-depth but the stunning 4K 50p pictures are worth the wait.
This is a 4K to HD camera worth its weight in gold…filming in 4K 50p gives you stunning results on an HD timeline, I was quoted by a technician today that the 4K 150MB/s at 420, 8bit converts to 444, 10bit when compressed down to HD and it certainly looks like it.
An SDXC C10 S3 64G card will record an hour of 4K 50p footage in the X1000 enough time for most video work plus you also have the luxury of a second card slot giving you 2 hours of 4K footage ! The camera is FCPX ready so there are no drivers to download it transcodes straight into FCPX with no hesitation.
