The top of the range models, including the HDC-TM900, HDC-HS900, HDC-SD900 and HDC-SD800 all feature Panasonic's Advanced 3MOS array (three sensors dedicated to a different colour) and the Crystal Engine PRO processor which offers improved light sensitivity and low-noise characteristics in low light.

"We expect that the new Full-HD 3MOS camcorders will be our best yet, with image quality that rivals professional video equipment and further advancements on last year's award-winning predecessors," says Chris Rice, Senior Product Manager, Imaging, Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company.

"The full-HD camcorders not only have that added wow-factor – with 3D video shooting capability – but consumers can also capture amazing 2D videos, easily with our larger, more intuitive touch-screen LCDs."

All of Panasonic's new camcorder models will be available from February 2011. UK pricing is still to be confirmed.
