Panasonic AG-DVX200 4K Camcorder with Single 4/3 MOS Sensor
Opening New Paths to Video Production
with 4K Quality and Mobility
The AG-DVX200 debuts as the world's first* 4/3-type large format camcorder with integrated zoom lens. Combining digital video technology that Panasonic has developed over its long history of producing broadcast equipment with its expertise in professional camera recorder, the AG-DVX200 blazes an entirely new trail in video production.
This new camera recorder captures stunning images with the shallow focus and attractive Bokeh effect of its 4/3-type large-format sensor, and the latitude made possible by the 12-stop V-Log L processing inherited. High-speed processing of these high resolution images by a new 4K engine enables high-quality, multi-format (4K/24p, UHD/60p, FHD/60p) recording.
The AG-DVX200 also features a number of high-end functions to meet video production needs, including Full-HD, 120-fps Variable Frame Rate(VFR) shooting and dual codec recording. And it integrates a newly developed LEICA DICOMAR 4K 13x zoom lens. High-speed, high-precision full-auto functions and professional-level manual functions provide operating ease and mobility that are possible only from a lens-integrated body.
The crimson red coloring and stylish carbon-black textured body form a highly impressive and innovative design, in response to the artistic sensibility of video creators. This color scheme also reflects the expressive capability of the AG-DVX200's vividly detailed 4K images together with its superb mobility and intuitively easy operation, supporting the everyday demands of active professionals.
A Day of Life: Shot on AG-DVX200
Rich Expression from a 4/3-type Sensor and 4K Engine
New 4/3-type Sensor for Beautiful Bokeh Effects and 4K Resolution
The AG-DVX200 features a 4/3-type, largeformat image sensor. It creates highly attractive Bokeh effects by blending 4K resolution with shallow depth of field. It also lets you capture clear images with minimal noise when shooting in dimly lit locations
LEICA DICOMAR 4K Lens
The high-performance LEICA DICOMAR 4K lens has passed the stringent quality standards of Leica Camera AG. A multi-coating process minimizes ghosts and flaring, while the use of a low-dispersion glass suppresses chromatic aberration. This results in especially clear images with very little color bleeding.
4K Engine with High-Speed Processing in a New LSI
The 4K engine, which is mounted on the AG-DVX200's newly developed LSI, quickly processes the massive amount of 4K data. A new noise reduction function also minimizes noise when shooting dark scenes with increased gain.
UHD/60p High-Resolution, High-Speed Full-Frame Recording
Full frame rate recording at a maximum 60p(60fps) is possible with UHD(3840 x 2160) resolution. This produces smooth, highresolution images from fast-moving scenes with no dropped frames. No dropped frames, which is important due to the recent announcement of UHD 59.94 native acquisition.
Variable Frame Rate HD Recording at Max. 120 fps
When recording at high Full-HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, the frame rate can be varied from 2 to 120 fps.* Slow-motion images can be achieved by shooting at up to 12x normal speed (in 24p mode), and quick-motion images can be produced by dropping frames.
12 stops of Latitude from V-Log L
The AG-DVX200 features a V-Log L function that is equivalent to the V-Log and curve characteristics provided on the new VariCam Series. Its 12-stop wide dynamic range accommodates cinema production work requiring post-process color gradation. In addition to this, gamma curves can be selected from 8 modes, including CINE-LIKE V, CINELIKE D, FILMLIKE 1/2/3, HD and SD.
High-Quality 4K (UHD) 10 bit 4:2:2 Image Output
The HDMI output terminal enables camerathrough output of 4K (4096 x 2160) /24p and UHD (3840 x 2160)/30p images. This allows uncompressed recording of 10 bit 4:2:2 image quality by external recorders.
Infrared Shooting Function
The AG-DVX200 has an integrated, detachable IR filter. Its IR mode enables it to record 4K images in the dark. Shooting and recording are possible in a zero-lux environment, such as unlighted nightscapes, animals in nature, and event sites before the lights are turned on.
Nimble Mobility with an Integrated Optical 13x Zoom Lens & Intelligent Full-Auto Functions
Newly Developed Integrated Optical 13x Zoom Lens
This 13x zoom lens comprises 17 lenses in 11 groups, including 5 aspheric lenses. It offers a level of mobility that is possible only with an integrated lens, extending from 28mm wideangle (in FHD mode)*1 to a wide zoom range with F2.8 brightness (at the wide-angle end), for news gathering and video production.
The AG-DVX200 features a high-speed, high-precision Intelligent AF system. Its new microdrive focus unit provides the focus lens with an extremely fine, continuous drive, to quickly trace your subject's movements. The excellent focusing speed, tracking performance and stability of this AF system strongly support the detailed 4K images and shallow focus.
Advanced Hand-Shake Correction
- Advanced Optical Image Stabilizer(OIS)
The correction area has been dramatically increased in the newly developed lens. This provides powerful correction even in unstable shooting situations, such as low-angle or highangle shots. The OIS lens drive mechanism has also been changed to a ball system. The ball OIS system reduces wear on the drive section, and greatly improves correction for smallamplitude hand-shake.
- 5-Axis Hybrid Image Stabilizer
By using hand-shake correction that combines the effects of both optical and electronic image stabilization, hand-shake in various directions, including the rotary direction, is detected and corrected.
Triple Manual Ring
The AG-DVX200 features three manual rings for mechanical (cam-driven) Zoom, Focus and Iris control. This manual operation offers a highly familiar, professional feel.
ND Filters, Gain, White Balance
- ND Filters: OFF, 1/4, 1/16, 1/64 ND filters built-in
- Gain Selector: Select from 0dB to +24dB gain for 3-position (L/M/H) allocation
- AWB Selector: Two-value (A/B) memory and presets (3200/5600/VAR) can be selected
4K/FHD Multi-Codec Recording and Double-Slot Reliability
The MP4/MOV codec provides 4K (4096 x 2160)/24p, UHD (3840 x 2160)/60p, and FHD (1920 x 1080) high-bit-rate recording, and the AVCHD codec supports low-bit-rate HD/SD recording. Being able to select from a variety of recording modes, each with a different image quality, frame rate, and bit rate, meets a wide range of applications, from cinema production to Internet distribution.
SD Memory Card U3 Standard for 4K Acquisition
The AG-DVX200 records onto SDHC/SDXC cards. Supporting the UHS Speed Class 3 for high-speed data transfer, this enables 4K/24p,UHD/60p, and VFR recording.
Approximately 160 minutes of 4K/24p data can be recorded onto a 128GB SD card, or a scene of about 110 minutes of UHD/60p data. (A 64GB SD card will hold approximately 80 minutes of 4K/24p data, or about 55 minutes of UHD/60p data.)
Double SD Card Slot Boosts Recording Reliability
Two SD card slots allow dual-codec recording, and enable various recording formats to raise recording reliability.
- Background Recording: Records ordinary Rec Start/Stop-controlled data in Slot 1, and records all data, even when the AG-DVX200 is stopped, in Slot 2
- Relay Recording: Automatically records continuously from Slot 1 to Slot 2
- Simultaneous Recording: Identical data is recorded onto cards in both slots in this highly redundant recording mode
- SD Card Copy: Recorded data is copied between the two slots
Dual Codec Recording
This function allows the image to be simultaneously recorded into two different, Main and Sub, formats.* An efficient workflow can be achieved by using the Sub Rec File for tasks such as previews, offline editing, and Internet data transfers. Dual Codec Recording is provided with two modes, an FHD 50M mode and an FHD 8M mode.
Other Recording Functions
Pre Rec: This function constantly caches approximately 4 seconds of video and audio data in MOV/MP4 format, or approximately 3 seconds in AVCHD format, prior to Rec Start, so the data can be recovered in case there is a delay in pressing Rec Start.
- Interval Rec
Records intermittently based on a set interval time.
- Freeze Frame
Images can be recorded as still images together with audio.
- Rec Check
This lets you check the end of the most recently recorded clip with one-touch ease.
Digital Audio 2-Channel Recording
Two-channel audio is recorded with the high sound quality of the Linear PCM format (MOV/MP4) or Dolby Digital format (AVCHD). The built-in mic, mic input, or line input can be selected for each channel, and the sound level can be manually adjusted.
