Panasonic unveils 1.1lb AVCHD camcorder

Panasonic has introduced the solid state AG-HSC1U, a 1.1lb 3-CCD HD camcorder.

The 1080i HD handheld camcorder records up to 88 minutes (41 minutes in the highest quality mode) of video on a high-speed 4GB SDHC memory card. A highly portable 40GB hard drive, capable of receiving and storing the contents of 10 4GB SDHC cards in the field, is packaged with the camcorder. SD video can be output in the widescreen 16:9 format.

By using the newly developed, H.264-based AVCHD video format, the AG-HSC1U delivers two times the recording efficiency of older MPEG-2 codec technologies.

The camcorder incorporates a native 1/4in 16:9 3-CCD system to deliver HD images. Its Leica Dicomar lens system features 13 lens elements in 10 groups and 21 multicoated surfaces.
