LEICA DICOMAR Lens
Newly Developed Wide-Angle 24.5 mm and 15x Optical Zoom
15x Optical Zoom
The 4-Drive Lens System achieves both high image quality/sensitivity and compactness with a wide-angle 24.5 mm and 15x optical zoom lens. This speedy zoom provides quick zooming in and out.
High-Resolution Intelligent Zoom
In FHD mode, the i.Zoom function increases the zooming capability to a maximum of 25x while maintaining high resolution. The i.Zoom function seamlessly switches on when the optical zoom limit is reached.
Digital Zoom (x2/x5/x10)
The Digital Zoom function activates without any drop in light intensity. Combining the optical zoom and i.Zoom enables maximum zooming of 250x.
LEICA DICOMAR Lens
This lens has passed the stringent quality standards of Leica Camera AG. A multi-coating process minimizes ghosts and flaring, resulting in especially clear images.
1.0-Type MOS Sensor for High-Precision, UHD 30p or FHD 60p Recording
High-Image-Quality, High-Sensitivity, 1.0-Type 4K MOS Sensor
The 1.0-type MOS sensor provides an outstanding depth of field and excellent balance between image quality and sensitivity. High-resolution recording is possible in UHD (3840x2160) 30p mode.
High-Image-Quality FHD Recording
Professional, high-end image recording is possible in FHD (1920x1080) mode with a 50-Mbps bit rate.
Versatile recording modes can be selected according to resolution, frame rate, bit rate, and file format.
Advanced Optical Image Stabilizer and High-Speed, High-Precision Intelligent AF
Advanced Optical Image Stabilizer [UHD/FHD]
The correction area of the Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.) has been expanded to approximately 900% over the conventional area (as compared to the Panasonic AG-AC160A). This provides powerful correction even in unstable shooting situations, such as low-angle or high-angle shots.
5-Axis Hybrid Image Stabilizer [FHD]
In HD shooting modes, 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.
Intelligent Auto Focus
The Microdrive Focus Unit achieves superior auto focusing with higher-speed tracking and stability even in 4K images. The highest class of focusing speed, tracking ability, and stability are attained in 4K video cameras.
Custom AF Function
Auto focus operation can be customised by adjusting the AF Speed, AF Sensitivity and AF Area Width. This function enables the AF to operate exactly as intended by the user in accordance with the subject type or application.
Versatile Manual Functions
Manual Three Rings + Focus Assist
Manual Three Rings
The AG-UX90 features manual three rings for Zoom, Focus and Iris control. These manual controls ensures professional operation.
Focus Assist (Expand and Peaking)
Expand (enlargement) or Peaking (coloured emphasis of focus point) is displayed to assist the user’s manual focusing operation.
This function temporarily activates Auto Focus when shooting in Manual Focus mode, using a “PUSH AUTO” button.
Auto Focus is easily possible with just a touch on the LCD panel. You can also change this to Auto Iris and Brightness Display.
FHD VFR (Variable Frame Rate) Recording, Double SD Memory Card Slots
FHD VFR Recording
VFR recording can be set in 10 steps from 2 to 60 fps.
Unlimited Relay Recording
By using double SD memory card slots, automatically records continuously from Slot 1 to Slot 2. By changing the SD card, images can be recorded continuously for many hours.
By using double SD memory card slots, identical data is recorded onto cards in both slots in this dual recording mode.
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.
Records intermittently based on a set interval time of 1 sec, 10 sec, 30 sec, 1 minute or 2 minutes.
Images can be recorded as still images together with audio. This function is convenient when moving the camera to a different location or when shooting a different scene.
The date and time can be stamped onto recorded images.
Camera Image Adjustment Functions
Including Details and Gamma Modes
