Panasonic announced three small and light 4K 60p camcorders. Not limited by their compact and lightweight designs, the HC-X1500, HC-X2000 and AC-CX10 offer a high standard of on-site mobility and portability, as well as the high-quality 4K 60p recording capability demanded by professionals, the company said. The Wide-Angle 25mm Lens and 32x i.ZOOM (4K recording) achieve high-spec optical performance thanks to Panasonic’s exclusive high-precision AF, which also provides high-speed, accurate focusing for both 4K and Full-HD shooting. The new models have a variety of professional functions, such as Two Manual Rings, an ND Filter, a Built-in LED Video Light, and 24-bit High-Resolution Linear PCM Audio Recording. Users can further customize the recording formats according to the shooting environment or preference.
The HC-X1500, HC-X2000 and AC-CX10 all support 4:2:2 10bit Internal Recording and the new, high-efficiency HEVC codec, and built-in Wi-Fi supports HD Live Streaming without additional equipment.
In addition, the AG-CX10 supports the broadcaster-targeted P2 MXF File Format. Ethernet HD Live Streaming and an NDI|HX compatible IP connection function are equipped, and connectivity is provided for use as a live camera.
All three camcorders will be available in late March 2020.
