  • Panasonic Compact Camera Head for Memory Card Portable Recorder

    The Panasonic Compact Camera Head was designed as a special option for the Panasonic Memory Card Portable Recorder. The recorder offers a dedicated interface for this camera, and the two connect over an optional cable that's available in different lengths. Compact and lightweight, the advanced Camera Head can be installed in hard-to-access places to provide a professional capture solution for the portable recorder.

    The Camera Head records up to Ultra HD 4K resolution at 29.97/23.98/25 fps, and has a 20x optical zoom lens that covers a range from 29.5mm wide angle to 612mm close-up shots, for various applications. Furthermore, it's packed with features such as stabilization, color correction, an optical ND filter, focus assist, stereo mic, and more.

    • 20x optical zoom: 29.5mm wide angle to 612mm close-up angle
    • Intelligent zoom (i.Zoom): Up to 30x in HD format / 22x in 4K (zooms in seamlessly from the optical tele-end)
    • Digital zoom: 1.4x/2x/4x/6x/8x zoom without any change in brightness (optical 20x zoom + i.Zoom + digital zoom 8x in HD format enables zooming up to a maximum of 240x)
    • Optical image stabilizer (HD/4K): images are highly corrected even when the camera is unstable, such as when mounted on an arm
    • Five-axis hybrid image stabilizer (HD): In HD mode, electronic image stabilization is added to the optical image stabilizer (OIS) system to detect and correct motions on five axes, including rolling motion; this is effective when shooting while walking
    Picture Adjustments
    • 16-axis Independent color correction: provides a separate effect to each of the 16 phases and saturation levels of video images
    • Optical ND filter can be manually switched (Clear, 1/4, 1/16, 1/64); resolution degradation from closing down the iris is prevented, even in bright lighting
    • Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) suppresses blocked shadows and blown highlights to produce improved gradation for each shade when dark, bright, and intermediate shades are all contained in the same scene
    • Gain/iris: The gain can be increased either with AUTO or 0–30 dB (in 1 dB units), plus super gain (33/36 dB); iris adjustment can also be adjusted independently from the gain
    • White balance: AWB A, B (two-value memory) / P3200K / P5600K / ATW / VAR (2000–15000K)
    • Image adjustments: Detail, V-Detail, Detail Coring, Skin Tone Detail, Color Temperature, Chroma Level, Chroma Phase, Matrix (Norm/Cine-Like/Still-Like), Master Pedestal, Gamma (HD Norm/Cine-Like/Still-Like), Black Gamma, Knee, NR Control
    Various Functions
    • Auto focus
    • Focus assist aided by a peaking display
    • Push auto: Temporarily activates auto focus
    • Infrared (IR) shooting mode, for nighttime observation and surveillance
    • Pre Rec: Constantly records video and sounds from approximately 3 seconds before ordinary recording starts, to prevent missing decisive moments
    • Rec check: Plays approximately the last 3 seconds that were recorded for confirmation
    • Zebra: Select any two levels from among 50–105% in 5% steps
    • Built-in stereo microphone for recording sound with video
    • 49mm diameter filters supported

  • Panasonic AG-UMR20 Memory Card Portable Recorder

    The Panasonic AG-UMR20 Memory Card Portable Recorder provides an ultra-flexible solution for dual SD card recording of camera signals and advanced IP control and streaming.

    It records up to 1080p59.94 signals over a 3G-SDI input, and can also record a UHD 4K/29.97 signal from the optional AG-UCK20GJ Compact Camera Head that was designed as a companion product. The optional camera connects into a dedicated 20-pin interface on the recorder via an optional cable.

    Featuring a small handheld design, battery and AC-powered operation, and consecutive and hot-swappable dual card slots, the Memory Card Portable Recorder allows for convenient backup recording in the field or in studio across broadcast, healthcare, remote imaging, and other applications. It's capable of recording up to 22 hours in AVCHD PS mode, and 112 hours in HE mode. It can also be arm or rack-mounted via 3mm threaded holes offered in two locations (on the left and right). Batteries are sold separately; please see the available options below.

    The recorder also features SDI and HDMI outputs, and is capable of outputting to display monitors simultaneously over both. While the SDI output supports up to 1080p59.94 signals, the HDMI output allows an up to UHD 4K/29.97 output to support the optional camera head signal. (The SDI output will pass the camera head signal in 1080p.)

    In addition to these inputs/outputs, the recorder also features a switchable mic/line input for independent audio recording, USB 2.0 interface for recording to mass storage, LAN port for connecting IP controllers, PCs, tablets, streaming decoders, and FTP servers, and 2.5mm and 3.5mm mini jacks for connecting zoom, start/stop, focus, and iris remote controllers. IP streaming over LAN can be performed at the same time with the SDI and HDMI outputs; ultimately, you can output three signals simultaneously. There's also a headphone stereo mini jack and a built-in speaker for monitoring audio.

    Another key feature of the recorder is a 3.5" touch-panel LCD which offers assignable functions, thumbnail images for quick viewing, waveform and vectorscope display, and vertically and horizontally reversible image display. Additional features of the recorder include photo extraction from 4K video, time stamp, and continuous repeat playback of a single or multiple clips (ideal for use in presentations). Other than the LCD controls, the AG-UMR20 also has large onboard function buttons which can temporarily be disabled for precaution.

    Touch-Panel LCD
    • 3.5", 16:9, 1.15 megadot panel
    • Touch-operable menu settings and user buttons
    • 13 user buttons, all assignable
    • Four Scene File buttons for easy switching of the scene setting
    • Vertically and horizontally reversible image display (the optional AG-UCK20GJ Compact Camera Head can be reversed vertically to match)
    • When the display image is reversed, the recorded image will remain in its original orientation
    • Waveform and vectorscope display
    • LCD DTL: The contours of the display image are emphasized to aid in focusing (even when the contours are emphasized, the recorded image will not be affected)
    LAN Terminal for IP Streaming and IP Control
    • IP Control: Remote control from a PC, tablet, or IP controller enables record start/stop, clip delete, and control of the optional AG-UCK20GJ Compact Camera Head (zoom, focus, iris, and menu settings)
    • IP Streaming: Video and audio IP streaming supported; signals can be received and monitored by PCs, tablets, and IP decoders
    • File Transfer: Recorded clips can be downloaded by a network PCF
    • Panasonic remote camera system IP controller supported for integrated system operation
    • Open IP commands allow for original systems design
    Two Remote Terminals
    • Terminal for record start/stop and zoom operations
    • Terminal for focus and iris control
    Versatile Recording and Playback Functions
    • Produce Photos from Video: Single-frame image files can be converted from recorded video images and used for high-quality photos
    • Last Clip Delete: The clip that was recorded immediately before can be deleted with a single touch (this function can also be allocated to a user button)
    • Time Stamp: Date and time information can be superimposed onto images (ideal for extended research activities and nature observations)
    • TC/UB Recording: An SMPTE timecode generator is built-in
    • Color bar signal output with 1 kHz audio test tone (when set to 50 Hz, a 997 Hz test tone is output)
    • Repeat Playback: Continuous, automatic repeat playback is possible for one clip or multiple clips from the thumbnail display
    • Resume Playback: When the Stop key is pressed during playback, the stop position is stored in memory; simply press the Play key to start playing again from the stop position (turning off the power resets the memory)
    • Clip Operation: Fast-forward, rewind, clip forward, clip reverse, and frame-by-frame playback operation are supported
    Supported Batteries (Not Included)

Panasonic AG-UCK20GJ Reviews

Compact 4K Camera Head Kit with Portable Recorder is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The HMR10/HCK10 Successor is worth the wait Having owned the AG HMR10 / AG UCK10 combo for years and using it for a variety of jobs I never expected a successor would finally come after as this is probably a niche system. Thankfully Panasonic chose to make an updated 4K successor and it addresses most of the shortcomings of the original.     First,  It uses full size long lasting batteries unlike the old model that only accepted the wimpy small ones unless you bought the adapter and strung a cable to use the bigger ones. And you dont have to buy the expensive new ones as the old CGR-D54 DVX100/HPX170/HPX270 batteries do indeed work with it.     Second.  It has a better LCD screen and its touch.      Third It can output HDMI and SDI simultaneously and also has some network capability     Fourth It can record 4K UHD.  But only at 50Mb/sec and only at 30P max.     Fifth You can now set a gain limit which was not possible with the old unit. On the old one the only way to limit gain was to be in manual.   There are more pros but Ive only used it a few times so Im still learning. Now for the cons.   It doesnt come with a battery or charger.  Thats right. At the price this costs that is not good.   It now allows focus peaking in color but will not allow focus peaking to be turned on when in autofocus mode which would be helpful.   It has dual SD card slots but seems to only be able to use them to relay record and not dual record as a backup which is not good.   The accessories just as before (hood, stand, cable) are very expensive. Nonetheless I bought them all for the new unit. If you want to tripod mount the UMR20 you have to have the stand.    If you happen to still have the old cable for the HMR10/HCK10 it still works as its the same as the new cable.   The new unit has a LOT of fan vents which concerns me.  Its like it is really pushing the limit and needs help cooling.   Overall I am pleased with the worthy successor of the useful old POVCAM system and grateful Panasonic made it.  It is much better than the old one. As you can see from the photos, both components are larger than the originals but so large it is an issue. I am glad to see it is finally being offered as a kit like the original was (camera head, recorder, cable) because for the 1st 3 years it hasnt been and I had to buy it all separately and at greater cost. I hope others will consider buying these as sales will determine if Panasonic will make a successor. Hope this helps.
