Panasonic AG-UX180 Overview

For a wide range of high-resolution and professional options when mobile or in the studio, use the Panasonic AG-UX180 4K Professional Camcorder for recording up to 4K24p 4096 x 2160 video and 8-mode gamma.

The AG-UX180 features a large, 1"-type MOS sensor that creates a dramatic bokeh with its wide-angle lens, and its focal length with 20x optical zoom ranges from 24 to 480mm. The camera's 5-axis Hybrid Image Stabilizer provides anti-shake correction for smooth movement, and the 3-ring lens design allows for precision iris/focus/zoom manual control. The shutter system functions in three modes—System, Slow, and Syncro Scan—which allow shutter speeds from 1/60 to 1/8000 sec. Four-step, built-in ND filters and variable gain settings allow for greater control over brightness and shutter.

Recording functions include DCI and UHD 4K/FHD/HD/SD resolutions, MOV, MP4, and AVCHD formats with MPEG-4 and H.264 compression, slow-motion video up to 120 fps, Pre Rec pre-recording function, interval recording for time-lapse, freeze frame, timestamp and timecode, JPEG still recording up to 8.8MP 4096 x 2160 resolution, and 16-bit/48 kHz LPCM or Dolby stereo audio. Two SD slots record onto SDHC/SDXC media, and UHS-I format is supported. Rollover recording is also supported, which allows recording to continue by automatically switching to the second slot when the first card is full. Recording to external media is also supported via a USB 3.0 output. The camera supports dual XLR inputs, HDMI/3G-SDI/SD-SDI/AV audio and video output, 3.5mm stereo headphone output, and BNC timecode output.

The camera's auto-assist operations feature a variety of tasks such as high-speed 4K autofocus, automatic white balance, one-touch AF, manual focus assist, and focus preset transition, as well as peaking, auto iris, and brightness display functions. Image adjustment presets include 16-axis color correction, skin and master detail, and six preset scene files with slots for custom scene files. Use the 3.5-type HD display or the .39-type OLED viewfinder to preview your video and view your settings.

The AG-UX180 also supports infrared shooting with a separately available IR light, and it supports wireless transmission with a separately available wireless module. Accessory mounting options include a cold shoe mount on top. A 5900mAh AG-VBR59 battery, a battery charger, a microphone holder, an AC adapter, an eyecup, a lens hood with lens cover, and an INPUT terminal cap are included.

What is the difference between the AG-UX180PJ8 and the AG-UX180PJ. They look pretty similar but maybe the J8 is newer and has a few other recording formats? Any major advantages? Thanks!
Asked by: Garrett
There is no difference, other than the newer model will come with the more up to date firmware out of the box.
