Panasonic AG-HPX600EN Lightweight 2/3 P2 HD camcorder with 10-bit, 4:2:2 AVC-Intra recording
Product Code: AGHPX600EN
|The Panasonic AG-HPX600EN P2 HD shoulder mount camcorder offers 10-bit, 4:2:2 AVC-Intra recording, low power consumption of only 18 watts and future-proof options, including
AVC-ULTRA recording 1. The world's first 2/3" shoulder camcorder under 7 lbs (approximately 6.2 lb2), the HPX600PJ is equipped with a newly-developed 2/3 type MOS sensor and records in
AVC-Intra100/50, DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO, and DV.
The Panasonic AG-HPX600EN provides innovative features and efficient workflows, with options such as wireless metadata input, proxy recording, variable frame rates; and future options including AVC-ULTRA and microP2 card upgradability in 20133. AVC-ULTRA will offer master-quality and/or low-bit-rate 10-bit, 4:2:2 recording in Full HD to meet variety of user needs from
mastering to transmission.
The Panasonic HPX600EN also features wireless and wired connection ability with Wi-Fi, USB and Gigabit Ethernet. In
addition, an option will support LiveU for video uplink with real time indication of LiveU's transmission status and video transmission quality to the camera operator. The HPX600PJ will
allow the user to upgrade his camera as new functionality becomes available 2.
The interchangeable lens camcorder is equipped with Chromatic Aberration Compensation (CAC) to maximize lens performance, Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) function to help
compensate for wide variations in lighting, and a highly accurate Flash Band detection and compensation algorithm that minimizes this effect. A smart user interface permits accessibility to the
camera's extensive functions from an LCD display on the camera's side. The
Panasonic HPX600EN will offer two P2 Card Slots and an SD Card Slot.
