4K 60P Professional Camcorders with Live Streaming Support

Panasonic has announced three new 4K 60p camcorders designed to provide mobility, efficiency and affordability for small production houses and news gathering professionals.

The lightweight camcorders are ready to go off-the-shelf, and allow working professionals to respond to events as they happen with capabilities including live streaming support, optical image stabilisation, and super slow-motion recording; as well as the convenience of built-in lenses, long battery life, XLR audio input and ND filters.

A heat-dispersing design that includes a newly developed thin fan makes the new models the industry’s smallest and lightest camcorder with an integrated lens capable of 4K 60p recording. By pulling in air from the rear panel and efficiently dispersing heat from the front panel, reliable, extended shooting is achieved.
