The Panasonic HC-X1000 is the world’s first 4K Ultra HD camcorder capable of recording 4K 60p/50p video images onto an SD card. It records in 4K (3840 x 2160) and Cinema 4K (4096 x 2160) formats, to produce smoothly flowing 60p/50p images. The X1000 camera shoots and records cinema 4K at a true 24p, and UHD at broadcast compatible frame rates, so it fits smoothly into your existing broadcast workflow. The HC-X1000 features a 1/2.3″ MOS sensor that is always shooting at 4K resolution, and uses its two built-in Venus processing engines to scale the 4K image for Full HD delivery.

If you recorded 4K and 1080P footage via Panasonic HC-X1000, you may want to import and edit Panasonic HC-X1000 recordings with iMovie/FCE.
