Highest-Quality, Full-HD Video Recording
With the compact HS-X1000, 4K Ultra HD* video is created with a 4K 8-MP 1/2.3-inch BSI sensor. Compared with the 2-MP sensors used in ordinary Full-HD camcorders, this distinct sensor advantage renders UHD and FHD professional-quality results. Right down to the finest details, and with minimal blurring.

4K Ultra HD Video On the Go
This highly agile, multi-format camcorder is ideal for shooting documentaries, sports and events. It supports 4K, Cinema 4K and Full-HD with frame rates that include 30p, 60p, and 24p.
In 4K 60p resolution, the mobile X1000 captures stunning, lifelike images. Using 60p/50p, the frame rate has twice the information of 30p for smoother motion. If you're ready for 4K, this is how you do it.
Versatile Formats and Bit Rates
Versatile formats and bit rates make the X1000 unbeatable in a wide range of applications. Its AVCHD, MOV and MP4 formats make editing quick and easy. And Full-HD utilizes ALL Intra compression for a maximum bit rate of 200 Mbps to bring incredible quality to image production.
2-Channel XLR Audio Input Terminals
For external mic and line recording, the X1000 is equipped with 2-channel input terminals. A +48 V phantom power supply is also included to handle pro-spec, high-performance microphones for recording high-quality sound.
20x Zoom with 4-Drive Leica Dicomar Lens System
To fit a 20x optical zoom into this portable body, the X1000 is designed with four compact, separately driven Leica Dicomar lens groups and a space-saving drive range. This efficiency — together with the subtle nuances and shading captured by renowned Leica lenses — clearly shows in sports scenes and other professional applications.
To suppress the amount of incident light, Neutral Density filters are built into the lens, and can be selected — 1/4, 1/16, 1/64 or OFF — to match your shooting environment. It's a distinct advantage when shooting at a slow shutter speed in bright daylight. And you can attain high resolution and a shallow depth of field when opening the aperture.
Triple Manual Lens Rings
For speedy and intuitive shooting, independent focus, zoom and iris rings are included on the lens barrel to meet professional needs.
Illuminating LED Ring
To make the shooting process smoother, an illuminating LED ring clearly verifies that recording is in progress. A feature easily turned on and off.
High-Speed, High-Precision AF
For confident, comfortable recording in ultra-quality 4K, simply maintain the AF drive frequency at 60Hz to improve focus speed, stability and tracking performance.
Blur-Free Imaging Anytime, Anywhere
Power O.I.S. for 4K - Built-in gyro sensors detect hand-shake up to 4,000x/sec to let the lens compensate and correct slow hand-shake caused by breathing. Your subjects stay sharp even while shooting with 20x zoom and 4K resolution.
5-Axis Hybrid O.I.S.+ for Full-HD Only - Hybrid O.I.S.+ incorporates 5-axis correction to suppress blurring from wide-angle to zoom for clear, sharp images in nearly every shooting situation.
0 Lux Night Mode
Shoot clear, detailed images even while observing wildlife in the dark (0 lux), taking advantage of infrared rays and IR-LED lighting.
