Video Performance* (9.5)*
Panasonic has made some big internal changes with the HDC-HS100. For the first time, Panasonic dropped a three-CCD system in favor of a three-CMOS sensor arrangement. It indicated that we could expect to see a 30% increase in resolution and a 20% increase in contrast. The processor was also overhauled since the previous generation, with a 300% improvement in input level that would increase detail in shadows while preventing blowouts.
