The AG-DVX200 is the first in a new generation of large sensor, multi-format Panasonic professional camcorders capable of capturing 4K/UHD, HD and SD, including cinematic DCI 4K 4096 x 2160. Designed from the ground up as a large format camera system, the DVX200 provides the all-important aesthetic of shallow depth of field / selective focus, combined with an integrated 13x zoom for easy control over image framing as well as the ability to track your subject even in fast action. The DVX200 works "out of the box" with an integrated lens, viewfinder and included battery (just add optional SDHC/SDXC UHS-3 cards). This large format 4/3" camcorder offers exceptional image quality in all modes, as well as unique workflow options – including a dual codec workflow borrowed from the renowned VariCam 35 cinema production camera. Whether for cinematic or television production, sports, news acquisition or event acquisition, the DVX200 offers the perfect blend of quality, convenience and workflow.
The AG-DVX200 captures high quality video in cinematic DCI 4K 4096 x 2160 at 24p, UHD 4K 3840 x 2160 (60p / 30p / 24p), FHD (including 120 fps and 24p), as well as SD. The DVX200 has a place in cinema style and reality TV 24p production, allowing Variable Frame Rate and higher speeds for special effects, and a native 60 frames per second record mode to satisfy the recent demand of 60p UHD television production. When used in HD, its 120 fps high speed capability is ideal for slow motion capture of sports or dramatic action sequences.
Image quality in all formats is exceptional. The large format 4/3” imager features advanced color separation filter technology to provide natural, yet accurate colors, especially skin tones. Another VariCam technology incorporated in the AG-DVX200 is V-Log, a wide dynamic range, low contrast “gamma” mode that faithfully maintains all 12 stops of the imager’s scene content. The DVX200’s V-Log L tonal curve matches that of the VariCam 35 V-Log curve, permitting easy mixing and grading of VariCam and DVX200 footage in post, allowing the DVX200 to be used as a “crash cam” on a VariCam shoot.
Recording is made to affordable, high speed SDXC cards, (UHS-II / UHS-3). Recording formats to choose from include MP4 / MOV for UHD / 4K, high bit rate I frame H.264 (MOV) for FHD, or AVCHD for HD / SD.
The AG-DVX200 offers the ability to record UHD and HD simultaneously; similar to the efficient dual codec workflow of the VariCam. Shoot UHD and HD together, use the HD as your editorial format for easy field viewing and edit selection, then conform the UHD as needed later for the final finish.
EASY TO USE
The compact design, yet solid feel of the camera permits easy single-handed shooting or shooting on a tripod as needed. Equipped with a Leica Dicomar 13X optical zoom lens, with three ring manual control over the lens functions; (zoom, focus and iris), the camera offers creative control for any shooting style. Nine customizable user buttons facilitate shooting for many different applications. A built-in wave form monitor and level gauge (to ensure level horizons when shooting) are included.
TOUCH SCREEN LCD & OLED VF
In addition to its high resolution touch screen LCD viewfinder, the camera is also equipped with a high resolution OLED Electronic Viewfinder, which has an eye sensor and only turns on when your eye is in close proximity to the viewfinder. Its 5 Axis Optical Stabilization ensures smooth natural camera motion, even when shooting handheld at high or low angles, or on a vehicle. A new, very accurate auto focus ensures that even in 4K, and with the associated shallow depth of field, critical focus is maintained.
REMOTE OPERATION VIA IPAD
Enable wireless remote control & adjustment of the AG-DVX200’s picture quality, zoom, focus and REC start/stop with the free AG ROP app. With the combination of the AJ-WM30 wireless module & an iPad (sold separately), the mobility of the DVX200 increases, allowing you to control it when it is being utilized on a crane or jib.
The version upgrade encompasses several feature improvements and additions:
A fast scan mode has been added to the menu options for 4K24p, UHD29.97p, UHD23.98p and UHD25p recording modes to minimize potential skewing
Color reproduction at higher brightness levels is improved to accommodate ranges of skin tones
Potential black dot noise in 4K/UHD has been reduced
Playback image aspect ratio has been corrected so that an image is properly displayed in 16:9 when a 480i/576i SQUEEZE video is played
ISO gain value display in high-sensitivity mode has been improved (menu bug fix)
