(Feature Information)

Cinema-Like Effect for Creating Cinema Style Videos
HC-WXF991 and HC-VX981

This model comes with four special functions that allow professional-like shooting techniques commonly used in cinema films.

Slow & Quick Video

The recording mode can be changed to Quick Video during slow motion shooting. By combining Slow Video and Quick Video, the user can add dramatic effects to motion-filled scenes.

Slow Zoom

Slow zooming, which is also often used in cinema films and difficult to do manually, is easy to operate. It lets the user add tension to otherwise simple scenes, and express emotional shifts in subjects.

Dolly Zoom

This technique zooms only the background while maintaining the subject's size to express feelings such as confusion, distress, or surprise. The resulting footage can be thrilling and create suspense in the film.

Slow Motion Video

Smooth slow motion video turns everyday scenes into works of art.
