Panasonic HDC-HS900 Features:
-AVCHD recording – employs the MPEG-4 AVC(H.264) codec for video compression, and Dolby Digital (AC-3) or Linear PCM for audio codec, twice as efficent as MPEG 2 and MPEG 4 and which allows recording onto SD/SDHC
-Pre Recording Function – missing that golden moment because you were all fingers and thumbs, not anymore. The camcorder continuously records a loop of three seconds of images into an internal buffer memory. When you actually press the record button, the three seconds immediately prior are automatically added at the beginning of the clip you record.
-Full HD Recording – compared to standard definition recording, most video cameras only have around 576 x 720 resolution, giving you around 400,000 pixels. Panasonic’s eCams with 1920 x 1080, 2.11 million pixels,are able to offer around 6x more resolution! In fact, full-HD has the most pixels of any HD format, and thus can render images with unmatched detail and resolution.
