The Industry's Smallest and Lightest 4K/60p Camcorder
Professional shooting everywhere. HC-X1500 packs advanced functions in a well-balanced body to excel both in functionality and mobility. A new ultrathin fan disperses the heat to allow the construction of the industry's smallest and lightest 4K/60p camcorder and a very low power consumption.
Flexible Framing with 25mm* Wide-Angle and 24x Optical Zoom
The lens covers the range from 25mm wide-angle to 600mm tele with a 24x zoom. iZOOM achieves 32x zoom with 4K resolution, and 48x zoom with FHD.
Face detection helps you keep the focus on your main subject - even when it is turned sideways to the camera. Distance and exposure are being tracked precisely, incorporating the live data read-out from the sensor and sophisticated colour recognition.
5-Axis HYBRID Image Stabilization
In addition to the Optical Image Stabilization in the lens, Electronic Image Stabilization detects and corrects camera shake. The lens O.I.S. System incorporates balls to drive the motor, which reduces friction and improves the correction of blurring caused through natural handheld camera shake.
4:2:2 10-Bit Internal Recording
Allowing you to capture more colour information in 4:2:2 10-bit, the HC-X1500 supports 10-but Full HD in 59.94p/50p (100 Mbps) and 4K-recording in 29.97p/25p (200 Mbps) on SD-card. Via HDMI output, you can record 4K/10-bit files, even in 59.94p/50p.
Full HD Live Streaming
RTSP/RTP/RTMP/RTMPS-compatible HD streaming enables direct connection and distribution of relays for concerts, sports events, and news flashes to Facebook, YouTube, etc.
Wireless Control from a Smartphone or Tablet
A Wi-Fi module is built in, so Wi-Fi connection of only the body is possible. Using a tablet or smartphone app HC ROP, wireless camera settings and lens control are also possible.
Two Manual Rings
Two manual rings are provided, one is for focusing and the other for zoom or iris operation. The use of the manual rings is improved by using different-sized rings in the front and rear, so they can be distinguished by the fingers.
