Next-Generation Imaging System
3MOS System Pro
3MOS System Pro produces vibrant colors and
finely detailed images with minimum noise. The 3MOS System Pro has achieved a revolutionary leap forward in each of its elements − lens, sensor and engine. In the F1.5, 29.8mm wide-angle Leica Dicomar Lens, a Nano Surface Coating enhances image rendering in every shooting situation. The Advanced 3MOS Sensor employs a pixel shifting technology to achieve the equivalent of four times the pixel count of Full-HD. And the Crystal Engine Pro II processes this huge amount of pixels at high speed to produce a remarkable level of Full-HD picture quality. The 3MOS System Pro offers Panasonic's highest-ever image quality with breathtaking detail, vibrant colors, and minimal noise when shooting in dimly lit places. It will preserve your memories in all their natural beauty.
Bright, High-Performance Lens
New 29.8mm Wide-Angle* F1.5 LEICA Dicomar Lens
with Nano Surface Coating Technology
New large-diameter F1.5 lens is mounted with a Nano Surface Coating applied to the front lens surface. These advanced lens systems suppress ghosts and flaring when shooting moving pictures, and let you record bright images with very little noise even in dark places. In addition, the 29.8mm wide-angle* is especially convenient for recording indoor or in tight spaces. * 35mm camera equivalent.
Equivalent to Four Times the Pixel Count of Full-HD
Advanced 3MOS Sensor with Pixel Shift Technology
The 3MOS Sensor splits the light information captured by the lens into the three primary colors - red, green and blue - and processes each color with its own individual sensor. This reduces light loss compared to the 1MOS sensor. Pixel Shift Technology, which took years to develop, provides a huge number of effective pixels for moving pictures – equivalent to four times the pixel count of Full-HD. This technology renders ultrafine images with excellent color reproduction and superb detail.
Enhanced Resolution and Noise Reduction Effects
Crystal Engine Pro II
The X900/X900M/X800 features the newly developed, ultra-high speed Crystal Engine Pro II. By using this engine to perform high-speed processing of the huge number of pixels – approximately equivalent to four times the pixel count of Full-HD – that are obtained with pixel shift technology, superb Full-HD image quality is achieved even in detailed image parts. The improved processing capability also dramatically reduces noise by 40%* compared with previous models, to record clear, stunningly beautiful images even in dim lighting. It also makes it possible to record highly detailed 3D images with Full-HD quality.** * Compared to HDC-HS900/TM900/SD900.
** The optional VW-CLT2 3D Conversion Lens is required for shooting 3D images.

FULL HD 3D Recording with 3D Conversion Lens
By simply mounting the VW-CLT2 3D Conversion Lens, you can record FULL HD 3D images* with the MVC (Multiview Video Coding) recording system of the AVCHD 3D format. Right-eye and left-eye images are both recorded and played in Full-HD quality, using the Frame Sequential Method to produce FULL HD 3D images. The 3D Conversion Lens is smaller than the one for last year's models, and its brightness has also been increased from F3.2 to F2.0. In addition, 1.5x zooming** is now possible, allowing a versatile range of 3D shooting. This brings all the lifelike ambience of the actual scene right into the living room. The X900/X900M is also equipped with a 3.5-inch wide LCD that allows 3D viewing without the need for special eyewear. Images taken in 3D can be checked on the spot.* The optional VW-CLT2 3D Conversion Lens is required for shooting 3D images.
** 1.5x digital zoom.
- Full-HD images for the right and left eyes are simultaneously recorded through two lenses, using a 3D lens that artificially reproduces the phenomenon of visual disparity.
- The TV alternately reproduces the left-eye and right-eye images, which are viewed through 3D Eyewear. To play back 3D images, simple insert an SD Memory Card in the slot of a VIERA 3DTV or use an HDMI mini cable to connect the camera to a 3D TV.
How do humans perceive
Because the left and right eyes are located at different positions on the face, the left and right eyes perceive slightly different images. The difference between the two images is called "visual disparity". The brain processes these two images with visual disparity to reconstruct spatial conditions, enabling us to see thing with three-dimensional depth.
Crisp, clear images even for fast-moving subjects
AVCHD Progressive Compliant 1080/60p (50p) Recording
1080/60p (50p) recording (Full-HD, 1,920 x 1,080, 60 (50) progressive recording) conveys about twice the information of 1080i (interlace) recording. Fast-moving subjects, such as in sports scenes, are smoothly recorded. The progressive recording of the X900/X900M/X800 fully complies with the AVCHD Progressive standard.
- Interlaced Scanning (1080/60i (50i))
- Only half of the image data is reproduced in each picture. Fabric patterns run together, and moiré patterns appear.
- Progressive Scanning (1080/60p (50p))
- Reproduces all of image data in a single picture. Patterns in fabric are crisp and clear with no color bleeding.
. All monitor and TV pictures are simulated.
