The Panasonic AG-HPX600 Camcorder with AG-CVF15 Viewfinder and Fujinon XA16x8A-XB4 Lens features a single 2/3" MOS Sensor and records Full HD 1080p video in AVC-Intra 10-bit with 4:2:2 chroma sampling. Other available video formats include DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO, DV and optional compatibility with the newly developed AVC-ULTRA. The MOS sensor attains high F12 sensitivity (at 60 Hz) and a signal-to-noise ratio of 59 dB. Weighing in at 6.6 lb, the HPX600 is among the lightest 2/3-type shoulder mount camcorders. The HPX600 utilizes Panasonic's P2 memory card system.
16x Fujinon Lens
The 8-128mm f/1.9-2.8 Fujinon lens has a 16x zoom ratio and a 35mm equivalent of 31.44-503.04mm. The lens also features an integrated handgrip with a zoom rocker switch and a servo for focus and zoom.
Color LCD Viewfinder
The AG-CVF15 viewfinder features a 3.45" color LCD display with 920,000 dot resolution and a native 16:9 aspect ratio. The display can be used as a direct monitor or as a viewfinder with the removable, flip-up eyepiece.
AVC-Intra 10-bit 4:2:2 Recording
The HPX600 employs the AVC-Intra codec in both 50 and 100Mps versions. Class 100 enables 10-bit 4:2:2 chroma sampling, and Class 50 does 10-bit 4:2:0.
Optional Compatibility with AVC-ULTRA
An optional upgrade provides HPX600 compatibility with the new AVC-ULTRA family of codecs.
Chromatic Aberration Compensation
Chromatic aberration is a type of distortion which results from a lens's limited ability to focus all colors to the same convergence point. When used with compatible lenses, the HPX600's Chromatic Aberration Compensation technology can automatically correct these types of optical flaws.
Flash Band Compensation
The HPX600 features Flash Band Compensation, which minimizes light band interference that can occur when shooting in an environment where flash photography is taking place.
Dynamic Range Stretch
DRS recognizes the average brightness of highlight and shadow areas and then automatically provides a wider dynamic range with minimal blown highlights and blocked shadows.
Focus Assist Functions
The Expand function and the Focus Bar are available to camera operators to aid them in finding and maintaining accurate focus.
Waveform and Vectorscope
The HPX600 has waveform and vectorscope built-in. These features aid camera operators in maintaining broadcast safe chroma and luminance values.
Camera Remote Interface
The HPX600 supports AJ-RC10 and AG-EC4, remote control units (sold separately) that operate almost all camera functions, including REC Start/Stop, iris, gain, white balance, scene files and more.
PAL & NTSC Switchable
The HPX600 is 50Hz (PAL) and 59.94Hz (NTSC) switchable for international usage.
A Range of "Future Proof" Options
In addition to upgrades for compatibility with AVC-Ultra and microP2, Panasonic will make several "future proof" upgrades available to the HPX600 (sold separately). An optional video encoder board will facilitate high res proxy video, and a wireless module will enable use of a wireless or wired (Ethernet) LAN. While viewing the streamed files, metadata can be added to the P2 files. In addition, with the optional AG-SFU602G Production Package Upgrade Software Key, the 24PsF format can be output from SDI OUT for production workflows or uncompressed data recording.
