    CineSwitch Technology Panasonic's exclusive CineSwitch Technology allows you to "switch" among different image capture modes and/or frame rates -- so you can achieve different creative looks. CineSwitch provides 60i, 30P, and 24P capabilities in our DV Cinema and DVCPRO Cinema Cameras, and variable frame rate capability (4-60P) for overcranking and undercranking in our HD Cinema Cameras. Get the rich, cinematic look you want with Panasonic Cinema Series Cameras with CineSwitch Technology.
