B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of Panasonic’s new UHD
4K60p HC-X2000,
and AG-CX10
camcorders. Designed around a 1/2.5″-type 8.29M MOS sensor, each
camcorder captures 4K images, which are scalable via their Venus
processing engines for full HD delivery. All offer live streaming using
their built-in Wi-Fi and can output via HDMI, with the HC-X2000 and
AG-CX10 also sporting a 3G-SDI (BNC) output. Capture options include
4K60p 4:2:0 10-bit recording with the efficient HEVC codec at rates up
to 200 Mb/s, up to 4K30p in 4:2:2 10-bit video, and up to 120 fps in
full HD for revealing, super slo-mo shots. For more advanced IP
networking, turn to the AG-CX10, which features a built-in Ethernet
connection, NDI|HX connectivity, and ROP tablet-based control.

Each of these new camcorders incorporates a wide 25mm, 24x optical Leica
Dicomar zoom that features flare and ghosting suppression. The optical
zoom range is an impressive 25 to 600mm (35mm equivalent) in 4K and
expands to 32x in 4K and 48x in HD with the i.ZOOM function. The two
manual control rings for focus and iris are sized differently for quick
hands-on use without taking your eye from the camera. Easily switch
between four ND filter settings right on the lens to compensate for very
bright environments or to use a slower shutter speed for blurred
effects. All three models keep your talent sharp with Panasonic’s fast
Face Detection AF, and you can track subjects including the use of color
recognition with the integrated 3.5″ touchscreen LCD.

  • NDI/HX for Streaming and IP Control
  • 1/2.5″ 8.29M MOS Sensor, Venus Engine
  • 24x Optical Zoom, 48x Digital iZoom

Suiting the nature of run-and-gun and POV capture, each camcorder
incorporates 5-axis optical image stabilization (OIS) for smooth, steady
shots. The Ball OIS even corrects subtle, handheld shake when shooting
at the far end of the 24x optical zoom range.

Another distinguishing feature of these camcorders is the inclusion of
the new, detachable VW-HU1
, included with the HC-X2000 and AG-CX10. This dual-XLR audio
input module has an easy-to-grip handle for low-mode shots, a mic
holder, a cold shoe, and an integrated, dimmable light for a quick and
easy light-level boost. HC-X1500 users can add this separately available
handle when they’re ready to upgrade their audio options to include the
pro-style XLR inputs. Each camcorder also incorporates features like
dual SD card slots, focus peaking and one-push AF, simultaneous
viewfinder and LCD screens, and a battery life of up to 4.5 hours with
the included battery.
