About Panasonic AG-HPX370

The Panasonic AG-HPX370 Series P2 HD Camcorder is an affordable 1/3" ENG camcorder that offers full-raster 4:2:2 sampling using the professional AVC-Intra HD codec. Equally at home recording 100Mbps DVCPRO HD, the AG-HPX370 brings new levels of lowlight performance to its three 1/3" CMOS sensors, utilizing Ultra Luminance Technology to provide the sensitivity and image quality of larger 1/2" imagers.

With two HD/SD-SDI outputs, two P2 media slots, a 17x Fujinon HD lens and one SD memory card slot (for scene files and user settings), the AG-HPX370 is a top-level image capture device that also offers a high degree of versatility. It can accommodate both 1/3" and 2/3" lenses, it shoots in standard definition as well as HD and with an optional remote control unit it can be used as a studio camera (aided by the included timecode and genlock functionality).

The variety of resolutions (1080i/p, 720p, 480i/p), frame rates (12-60p), image settings and recording modes--not to mention the well-known advantages of a P2 workflow--all provide the flexibility, functionality and sheer image quality that have made Panasonic's professional camcorders the workhorses of so many production environments.

Panasonic AG-HPX370 Features

  • Newly Developed U.L.T. Image Sensor: High levels of sensitivity and image quality have been achieved with a new high-sensitivity photodiode and low-noise pixel transistor, both based on low-noise analog process technology that was accumulated in Panasonic CCD camera development
  • Fujinon High-Performance 17x Zoom Lens: Optimized for use with the AG-HPX370 series, this high-performance HD lens incorporates advanced broadcast lens technologies to achieve a compact size, light weight, F1.6 at 4.5mm f-value at the wide end and excellent zoom response
  • Chromatic Aberration Compensation: This technology sets up a conversation between lens and camera which allows for a highly sophisticated algorithm to be deployed that will automatically compensate the registration error caused mainly by lens chromatic aberration and minimize the circumjacent blur
  • Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS): In scenes with mixed contrast, such as when panning from indoors to outdoors, the DRS function automatically suppresses blocked shadows and blown highlights. A gamma curve and knee slope are estimated to match the contrast of each pixel and are applied in real time
  • Flash Band Compensation: The AG-HPX370 series is equipped with highly accurate flash band detection and compensation software on the camera's signal processing LSI
  • 3-Position Gain Selector / 24dB Gain-Up Function: There is a 3-position gain selector, with L, M and H settings. To each setting you can assign a gain value from -3dB to 12dB, in 3dB steps. There is also a USER button--just give it a quick touch to instantly boost the gain by 24dB
  • Newly Developed 20-bit Digital Signal Processor: The AG-HPX370 series incorporates a high-performance 20-bit DSP that handles image rendering processes such as gamma and various detail enhancement functions with exceptional precision
  • Scene File Dial: Adjust this dial for an instant set of shooting conditions. Six preset files are provided and you can change any of the six file names and their settings as desired. You can also store and load the settings to and from an SD card
  • Slow, Synchro and High-Speed Shutter: The shutter speed can be set between 1/6.25 second on the slow end in 50Hz mode and 1/2000 second on the fast end. Used with the variable frame rate function, this allows you to create a blurring effect or crystal-clear stop-motion of sports action
  • 7-Mode Gamma for Richer Gradation: Drawing on technologies developed for the VariCam, Panasonic has equipped the AG-HPX370 with advanced gamma functions that address seven different shooting scenarios and enhance your creative abilities
  • 20-Step Variable Frame Rate: Like the VariCam, the AG-HPX370 series allows undercranking and overcranking common in film cameras, to create fast-motion and slow motion effects. In 720p mode, the frame rate can be set to any of 20 steps
  • 1080/480 24p Advance Mode: The 1080 and 480 progressive recording systems convert recordings to 60i in 24p, 30p, or 24pA (Advance) mode. The 24p Advance mode uses 2:3:3:2 pulldown, which allows for an easy extraction to a 24p timeline and no quality loss in the process with compatible NLEs
  • Scan Reverse Function for Use w/Film Lenses: The AG-HPX370 series comes with scan reverse. This function cancels the image inversion that occurs when a cinema lens adapter is used
  • Comes Equipped with AVC-Intra Codec: An AVC-Intra codec board is included as standard equipment. It allows recording in either of two modes: AVC-Intra 100 for full-pixel HD (1920 x 1080 and 1280 x 720) images, or AVC-Intra 50 for low-bit-rate
  • High-Image-Quality AVC-Intra 100 Mode: With the same bit rate as DVCPRO HD, this mode supports full 10-bit recordings with 1920 x 1080 pixels. It enables the AG-HPX370 to capture master-quality video for high-end video production
  • Low-Bit-Rate AVC-Intra 50 Mode: This mode delivers video quality very similar to DVCPRO HD, yet is able to do so at bit rates usually associated with standard definition. AVC-Intra 50's lower bit rate doubles the recording time per P2 card over DVCPRO HD and lowers storage requirements for editing
  • HD Multi-Format Capability, Including Native 24p: The AVC-Intra 100 and 50 codecs let you record in a choice of HD video formats: 1080/25p, 1080/50i, 1080/23.98p or 29.97p as well as 1080/59.94i. These HD formats bring extra flexibility to all of your production needs
  • Selectable DVCPRO HD Recording: The AG-HPX370 series also supports the conventional DVCPRO HD codec. Because the AG-HPX370 is designed to be used with the AG-HPX170 series/HVX200A series or a DVCPRO HD VTR, it adapts to a variety of system configurations
  • 48-kHz/16 bit, 4-Channel Digital Audio: The AG-HPX370 series can record full 48kHz/16-bit digital audio on all four channels. You can freely select the audio source for each channel, choosing from mic-in, line-in and wireless receiver
  • New One-Clip Rec Mode: The One-Clip Rec mode is handy for recording a variety of events. Whereas normal Rec mode produces a clip for each Rec start/stop cut, One-Clip Rec mode records up to 99 consecutive cuts as a single clip, which greatly improves the nonlinear editing work that follows
  • P2 Recorder Section: The P2 recorder section offers reliable, large-capacity, high-speed memory card recording and a number of advanced functions
  • White balance: Three values (A/B/Preset) of white balance with the auto tracking white function
  • Mode check: Displays a list of the camera settings on the viewfinder and LCD monitor
  • Zebra: Select any two levels from among 50% to 109%, in 1% steps
  • Y-GET: Measures brightness at the screen center and displays precise numerical data
