Product Description

The Panasonic AG-HMC150 Camcorder records high-definition images on standard SecureDigital (SD) and SDHC memory cards. Compared to consumer camcorders the HMC150 has the ability to record AVCHD images at significantly higher bitrates. This enhancement makes the camera more efficient than comparable HD interframe codecs, such as HDV and XDCAM EX. Using the H.264 compression algorithm; the camera records incredibly detailed images at a fraction of the file size.

AVCHD is a variant of interfame codecs such as HDV and XDCAM. The advantage is that AVCHD uses a standard H.264 compression algorithm, making it highly efficient without requiring massive amounts of memory. Less bandwidth also allows the camera to record directly to SD and SDHC media. For example, a standard 8GB SDHC card can hold 80 minutes of footage at the highest resolution, or 180 minutes in economy mode. An optional 32GB card has the capacity to record anywhere from 320 to 720 minutes.
