Panasonic HC-X1000

 

Is this prosumer 4K camcorder going to start a 4K revolution?

Compact and light design ; Excellent price ; 60fps 4K shooting

Poor light performance ; Limited dynamic range ; Plasticky build quality ; Small sensor

There are some promising elements in the X1000, but images really suffer in low light situations. It really needs a larger sensor to make the most of its other qualities.

Panasonic HC-X1000E review

 

The HC-X1000E has excellent image quality, lots of high-end features and little competition

The Panasonic HC-X1000E is an excellent semi-professional Ultra HD camcorder with some excellent features. It’s a great choice if you’re an experienced videographer who wants to shoot Ultra HD video. It doesn't have many direct competitors at present,...

Panasonic boosts 4K shooting with HC-X1000 camcorder

 

The X1000 4K camcorder offers semi-pro features inside a small, handheld body

The X1000 will go on sale priced at £2,599. We'll bring you more information and a full review once samples are available.

Panasonic's 4K camcorder looks pretty feature-packed for $3,500

 

A new prosumer run-and-gun-style camcorder has tons of entry-level pro features -- it's just missing the three sensors.

Panasonic HC-X1000 4K 24p Cinema/60p Video Camcorder Review (Panasonic HC-X1000, Panasonic x1000)

 

The options for highly versatile and remarkably powerful 4K video shooting on a relatively moderate to downright modest budget keep growing these days and numerous pro or semi-pro camcorders and cinema cameras for the middle-ground are coming out all...

Excellent DCI 4K and 4K UHD shooting capacity ; Superb Leica Zoom lens ; 4K UHD at 60fps ; Light and easy to handle

Weak at low light performance ; Poor dynamic range ; Flimsy build in some ways ; Video output lacks cinematic quality

As long as you understand the limitations for low light shooting and dynamic range that the HC-X1000 suffers from we still highly recommend this camcorder for daylight shooting of documentaries and public events. Its zoom lens and very robust 4K video...

Panasonic's 4K camcorder looks pretty feature-packed for $3,500

 

In a somewhat stealthy announcement at IFA 2014, Panasonic debuted its first prosumer -- a little more "pro" than "sumer" -- 4K camcorder. The HC-X1000, which will go by X1000E in Europe, seems to offer the same recording capabilities as the GH4,...

I suspect that Panasonic dumped it in the "prosumer" bin because it uses a single sensor instead of three -- a nontrivial difference, of course. But feature-wise, it looks like it has quite a lot of pro capabilities, including two XLR inputs; USB 3.0...

Unusable footage indoors

 

I am a sports and wedding videographer and have to say this camera is junk for any shots taken indoors unless you have a pro lighting setup. After 5 months of using this camcorder on weddings (we now use it as a stationery camera as backup, so a $3k...

Easily perfectible (next firmware maybe)

 

I bought the HC-X1000 to replace a SONY HVR-Z5 (HDV format). Small sensors is fine for me because I don't need the short deep of field that comes with larger CMOS.

Poor IQ

 

The image quality is poor. now matter what I do the images in BOTH 1080p and 4K are soft AND noisy. The files are upgradeable in Premiere or you get even more noise. It might have a Leica lens but the sensor can't use it! Also the manuals(or lack there...
