The Panasonic AJ-HPX3100 is Panasonic's most compact, lightweight 2/3" P2 HD shoulder-mount camcorder ever. Featuring three 2/3" high density 2.2 million pixel CCDs, the HPX3100 acquires full-raster 1920 x 1080 resolution imaging with 4:2:2 10-bit sampling using the advanced AVC-Intra codec. Offering a new compact size (similar to the AG-HPX370) for added mobility, the two P2 slot camcorder records in multiple worldwide formats, in HD in AVC-Intra and in DVCPRO HD at 1080 in 24p, 25p, 30p, 50i and 60i, and in SD (480i/586i) in DVCPRO50, DVCPRO and DV.


AVC-Intra, the industry's most advanced compression technology, is a professional intra-frame video codec with bit rates of 50 and 100Mbps, utilizing the High-10 and High-422 profiles of H.264 respectively. AVC-Intra provides high-quality 10-bit intra-frame encoding in two modes: AVC-Intra 100 for full-raster mastering video quality, and AVC-Intra 50 Mbps for DVCPRO HD quality at half the bit rate, thereby doubling the record time on a P2 card.

Designed for scripted programming, documentary, nature, cinema and commercial production, the master-quality HPX3100 offers new features including 24-bit audio in AVC-Intra 100/50, wireless metadata input capability via wireless LAN, and a high-quality proxy recording (option). The Panasonic AJ-HPX3100 is equipped with six advanced gamma settings, including Film-Rec 600% mode (made popular by the VariCam), film-like shutter controls, and intuitive film camera-like operation. It also features a built-in reverse scan that allows unique setups such as mounting the camera upside down or usage of an ultra prime lens or an anamorphic lens adapter to create a 2.35:1 aspect image.

• A newly designed body with low center of gravity offers unobstructed views on both sides and weighs approx. 3.9 kg (8.6 lb) without accessories.
• Power consumption is approx. 34 W for the camera recorder only, about 23% lower than a conventional model.*6
• The 2.2 megapixel 2/3-type 3CCD provides high-resolution full-pixel (1920 x 1080) HD images.
• A high sensitivity of F11/F12*1, and an excellent S/N ratio of 59 dB.*2
• The AVC-Intra 100 codec records high-quality images using 10 bit/4:2:2 sampling.
• Supports high-quality 24 bit audio recording*3
• The one-clip recording function records multiple cuts in a single clip.
• New options enable high-quality proxy video*4 and wireless LAN capability.*5
• Optional color or black-and-white type viewfinder.
• Supports optional camera studio systems.
• Compatible with the new microP2 card.*6

New Design for an Enhanced Level of Mobility
The innovative new form of the AJ-HPX3100 brings greater mobility, comfort and operating ease to the familiar shoulder-held shooting style. The body is small and weighs just 3.9 kg (8.6 lb) without accessories. A large shoulder pad and low center of gravity combine to ensure outstanding stability on the shoulder. The low-profile design also provides an unobstructed view to the camera operator's right. All operation switches, volume controls and P2 card slots are set on the left side of the camera. Their logical horizontal arrangement makes it easy to insert and remove cards quickly.

2.2-Megapixel 3CCD Offering Both High Resolution and High Sensitivity
The camera section features a 3CCD system with a high-density 2.2 megapixel 2/3 type 3CCD to offer full-pixel HD (1920 x 1080) resolution and high F11 or F12* sensitivity. The switchable interlace/progressive system adapts to 1080/23.98p (or 29.97p, 25p) native video recording.
*F11 sensitivity is attainable in the 1080/59.94i mode, and F12 sensitivity is attainable in the
1080/50i mode.

14 bit DSP Circuit Achieves High Image Quality with S/N Ratio of 59 dB
The high-performance DSP circuit provides rich gradation and superb color reproduction based on 14 bit A/D conversion. With an S/N ratio of 59 dB (when the DNR is turned ON), it also offers low noise. The circuit features highprecision picture quality adjustment functions such as a skin tone detail function and a 12 axis independent color correction function. The new DSP circuit achieves less consumption than previous models.

Chromatic Aberration Compensation (CAC)
This exclusive technology works between the lens and camera, allowing for a highly sophisticated algorithm to be deployed that automatically compensates the registration error that is caused mainly by lens chromatic aberration, and minimizes the neighboring blur.
