Featuring dual-lens, six sensors, 1080p50 recording in 2D mode and 1080i50 in 3D mode, full manual focus, zoom and iris controls, high-end audio options, and manual controls to adjust the convergence point of the lenses during 3D capture.
Filled with Original Imaging Technologies
Professional-Quality Full-HD 2D and FULL
HD 3D Images
The Double 3MOS System reflects the essence of a number of unique technologies that Panasonic has accumulated. This advanced imaging system combines two large-diameter F1.5 lenses featuring a special Nano Surface Coating technology, with two independent, high-sensitivity 3MOS sensors left and right for superb colour and detail reproduction, and the newly developed Crystal Engine Pro II for high-speed processing.The result: an entirely new dimension in lifelike imaging.
Superb Colour Expression from High-Sensitivity Sensors
The HDC-Z10000 employs two independent, high-sensitivity 3MOS sensors, left and right, each with a three-sensor configuration. This provides a resolution of 6.57 million effective motion image pixels (2.19 million x 3)*. With their excellent colour reproduction and strong low-light shooting capability, these 3MOS sensors maximize the quality of FULL HD 3D and Full-HD progressive images.* 6.21 megapixels when shooting in 3D.
High-Performance Mic Connection
Twin XLR Terminals
In addition to the electret condenser microphones that are built into the HDC-Z10000, XLR audio input terminals allow 2-channel input with 48-V phantom power supply for external microphones. This enables use of the many high-performance microphones with XLR terminal connection capability that are available for professional equipment.
Faithful Sound Recording
Linear PCM Recording
The HDC-Z10000 features 48-kHz/16-bit linear PCM recording (2 channels only) that captures original sounds faithfully and accurately. This meets the demand for high sound quality, for example, when recording live music performances and the sounds of nature.
Capturing Voices Over a Wide Area for a More Life-Like Sound
5.1-Ch Surround Sound System
The HDC-Z10000 is equipped with five electret condenser microphones. The center mic helps capture the sound source and distance accurately, so you get a more 3-dimensional effect. You get a realistic sound space that's a perfect match with the true-to-life HD images.
Expressing Images Exactly as Intended
Triple Manual Rings
Three independent manual rings allow detailed adjustment of the focus, zoom and iris. You can fine-tune each of these adjustments while viewing the results in the LCD or EVF, so you get the exact images you want quickly and easily.
Flexible Control of the 3D Effect
3D Convergence Control
The convergence angle between the two lenses is varied inside the optical unit. This moves the convergence point (the reference plane of the 3D image) in a fore-and-aft direction to control the leaping and depth effects of recorded objects, and acquires natural-looking 3D images. The convergence point is automatically adjusted, or it can be manually adjusted with the convergence dial while viewing the LCD image.
Choose Extended Recording Time or Backup Use
Dual SD Card Slot
With two SD cards in the Dual SD Card Slot, you can choose either relay recording or backup use.
Easy to Carry, Easy to Use
Compact, Lightweight Body
The HDC-Z10000 delivers a level of image quality that rivals other professional integrated twin-lens 3D cameras while dramatically reducing both size and weight. It is very easy to carry around and offers superb mobility in tight, indoor locations.
Powerful Hand-Shake Correction
HYBRID O.I.S. +*
The new HYBRID O.I.S.+* corrects the kind of roll direction hand-shake that often occurs when shooting while zooming or walking, in addition to horizontal, vertical, yawing and pitching four-axis correction. This makes the hybrid correction function, which previously worked only for telephoto, also effective for wide-angle shooting. It records steady images over the entire zoom range.* For 2D shooting only. POWER O.I.S. for 3D shooting.
Optimal Settings Made Automatically
iA (Intelligent Auto)
The iA function lets the HDC-Z10000 choose the optimal shooting mode automatically with the press of a button. The Intelligent Scene Selector, HYBRID O.I.S.+ (POWER O.I.S. for 3D shooting), Face Detection and Intelligent Contrast Control automatically operate as needed, so you get high-quality images while the HDC-Z10000 does all the work.
Beautiful Wide-Angle Shots, Powerful Zoom Shots
32mm Wide Angle*, 10x Optical Zoom
A wide range of shooting situations are covered by this versatile lens, from 32mm* wide-angle shooting (29.8mm* for 2D shooting) to 10x optical zooming (12x for 2D shooting, 23x for shooting with Intelligent Zoom). This greatly extends the range of uses, from shooting in tight places to situations where you and the subject are far apart.* 35mm camera equivalent.
No More Missing Those Great Shooting Opportunities
2.0-sec Quick Power-On/0.6-sec Quick Start
Just switch the power on and the HDC-Z10000 is in standby mode in about 2.0 seconds,* ready to shoot when you are. When the LCD is closed, the power automatically switches off.* Depending on the recording conditions, start time may be longer.
Using Quick Start mode, you simply flip open the LCD and you're ready to shoot in only 0.6 second.** Depending on the recording conditions, start time may be longer.
One-Touch Shooting and Image Cut-Out
2D/3D Still Picture Recording
Simply press the shutter button to record a 2D or 3D (MPO compliant) still image* at any time. It is also possible to cut out images in all modes while shooting or playing videos. 3D and 2D still images are recorded simultaneously with 2.1-megapixel resolution.* 3-megapixel resolution for 2D, 2.1-megapixel resolution for 3D.
Easy to Cut-Out Images and Store to a PC or SD Card
HD Writer XE 1.0
The HDC-Z10000 is bundled with HD Writer XE 1.0 software, which lets you easily cut out MVC format FULL HD 3D or 1080/60p (50p) Full-HD images, and save them onto a PC. It is also possible to write the images onto a Blu-ray Disc™ or SD card.** In order to play images recorded onto a Blu-ray Disc™, a device that is compatible with the AVCHD 3D/Progressive standard is required.
