Large-sized products, high-end them. Strangely, Panasonic is still enduring the three-sensor system to achieve the desired quality. Here to talk about the Panasonic HDC-HS300.

Technical specifications

Full description

The TM300 is a twin memory model that records Full HD images either on its internal flash memory or an SD (or SDHC) memory card. The TM300 can copy recorded video images from the SD memory card to the internal memory, or vice versa, with easy operation. The TM300 features the Full HD 3MOS sensor, developed by Panasonic based on its proven 3CCD technology. Panasonic's 3MOS system captures more vibrant, true-to-life colors, greater detail and richer gradation. The iA function automatically activates several convenient shooting functions. These include advanced O.I.S., which compensates for hand-shake to eliminate blurring; Face Detection, which adjusts the exposure so faces are captured perfectly; and Intelligent Contrast Control, which helps ensure proper contrast. Also included is the Intelligent Scene Selector, which determines the shooting conditions and automatically selects the scene setting that will provide optimal results. (Face/Scenery/Low light/Spot Light) And AF tracking keeps the subject in focus even if it moves around to ensure continuously perfect image quality. The manual ring is provided for users who want more creative freedom in their image production. With the HDC-TM300 users can enjoy precise, responsive fingertip control over five key settings - zoom, focus, iris, shutter speed, and white balance. Image sensor size has been increased from previous 1/6 inch to 1/4.1 inch. 3MOS system with 3 Full-HD sensors has total pixel count of 9,150,000 pixels (3,050,000-pixel x 3). While higher pixel count tends to make noise more noticeable when shooting under dim light conditions, HDC-TM300 solves this problem by using 3 high-sensitivity MOS sensors. It records beautiful images even under dim lighting while maintaining high pixel count, thus making it possible to shoot under minimum luminance of 1.6 lx.
