About Panasonic AG-DVX200

AG-DVx200 4K Large-sensor, 4/3" Handheld Camcorder

Thirteen years after the groundbreaking AG-DVX100 was introduced and brought cinematic 24p frame rates to the world of video, the Panasonic AG-DVX2000 is said to be the first 4/3 format sensor 4K/60p camcorder to feature a built-in zoom lens. The camera is fronted by a Leica Dicomar 13x zoom lens (with a 35mm equivalent 28-365mm range), which is matched for optimal performance with the 4K imager. The camera boasts a 12-stop dynamic range, and the ability to capture shallow focus and good Bokeh via the f/2.8 minimum aperture. With its attention-grabbing crimson-red body, the camera is designed for both studio and portable production and ENG. Its extensive range of features include a variable frame rate from 24p at full resolution to slow-motion capture at a lower resolution at up to 120fps. The camera is capable of capturing infrared as well as standard images, although an IR illuminator will be a separate purchase.

AG-DVX200 lives up to its name

It's a great camera. I am only a few shoots in with it, and I may come back and update in the future (if that is possible here). Read your Barry Green book, and the manual. Setting up scene files (or installing them from download) takes some time. Scene 5 out of the box does okay. I work in education and basically needed some cameras that could do everything, live-event, narrative, etc. I have several DSLRs, and a Blackmagic, and needed something that could do this duty as well.

Has problems with its scene files and color

No information given in manual for importing or saving scene files to card. Has a weird magenta shading on image When using scene file 1, the default setting, with corrected white balance, the camera comes up with a yellowish tinge on the image. No instructions given on how to fix this. Camera has NO exposure meter! Unless you are Experienced professional with access to color charts forget it.. Not recommended!

Switch to Panasonic from Sony

By

 -  Semi-Pro

For my whole life, I purchased Sony video camera. AG-DVX200 is my Panasonic's product. I have used it on two occasions and am happy with its performance. I have lot to experiment with it but so far I have no complaints. Good camera and recommend to purchase it. Adorama- excellent service.

Setting up scene files (or installing them from download) takes some time. Scene 5 out of the box does okay. I work in education and basically needed some cameras that could do everything, live-event, narrative, etc. I have several DSLRs, and a Blackmagic, and needed something that could do this duty as well. In a word, I am so far, very impressed. Also, needed a camera that recorded in mp4 for our streaming server, and YouTube use (for stuff we were not going to edit). The camera really serves well in all roles, working very well as a traditional video camera for live events (great zoom control, Varizoom input control for focus and iris, and also seems to play the DSLR role well. The stock lens is very impressive for factory kit (very little CA, easily focusable using the screen and fantastic focus peaking function) and the big chip gives you depth of a much more expensive dedicated video camera. All in all I am impressed. There are some annoying bits like the auto EVF/LCD switch (why was this needed?), and no your camera is not broken out of the box when the LCD blinks on and off. And a few other items about the way the menus are set up could be better, but for me, the camera seems to fit my needs very well, and do what it promises. And so far, after getting it set-up with some downloaded scene files, I am VERY impressed with the quality of the image. I know it's apples to oranges, but it destroys the Sony AX100 I have been using to play with 4k.I will update in the future if I can get back here.

Great picture and other features, but.....

By

We bought the Panasonic DVX200 to be part of an update for the 5 Sony EX1s,EX1Rs and EX3 we have. Most of our work is for Trade Shows where the requirement is for great low light performance and high quality images. The appearance of the unit is striking with the red accents and the 4K branding adding to the professional looking shape. In a well lit situation the 4K picture is very good. The viewfinder is exceptional. The ability to use SDXC cards was required for us as we have no intention of using proprietary expensive media. The extreme contrast range even in normal settings is very pleasing. The shape and weight is more conducive to hand-held than the Sony EX cameras We did find however that there were a few things we believe can be improved. The menus are tedious and it is difficult to find and change settings. The wide-angle range is not wide enough for a portion of the work we do and the low-light capability is perhaps the biggest drawback. To be useful in run and gun trade show work this needs to be improved. Footage taken with one of our EX1r's at 12db gain and F4 provided a much better image than the DVX200 with ISO set at high sensitivity (1000) and a required gain of 18db wide open. The DVX200 had more grain and less detail resolution. We were recording at the highest (150mb) 4K 60P setting and perhaps because of the 60P this has an impact on low light sensitivity. When we shot at 30P in an unrelated test, just visually it seemed to perform better. We also tested the camera in a duplicate green screen setup with one of our Sony EX cameras and again it required high sensitivity and gain while the Sony shot at 0db with the aperture at F4-f4.8 Because of all the features and settings this camera has, I'm certain we haven't tweaked it to it's best potential. However at this point, because it's new, there isn't a lot of guidance on how to do that and we are open to suggestions on how to maximize quality in low light action situations.

Questions about this item:

GREG S  What's in the box? I wish adorama would do a better job of listing what's included.
DEAN F  It's been about a year, so this is by memory. The camera One battery Battery charger Camera strap User manual I can't remember if there is any software or not. It's a pretty basic setup. Get an additional batter, maybe a good uv filter, a camera bag and your set to go. Get the camera. It's great. I don't love the menu (compared to Sony) but there are a ton of options in there.
MEGAN M  camera, battery and charger, camera strap, dvd tutorial.
Christopher C  Unfortunately, I don't really remember. However, the box has everything you need to shoot a news style or documentary type production. It's a pretty wonderful camera and I like it because it's a "grab and go" or "run and gun" deal. It's not too complicated (not at all if you are familiar with pro grade still cameras or more pro grade video). If you are a little more savvy, or plan on doing more production work, look into a decent external monitor, shotgun and lav mic, and a good tripod with nice head. Hope this helps!
Shopper  How doe this camera perform in low light?
MARK R  I recently rented this camera from Lens Rentals--I have some straight out of camera indoor footage that is terrific with out anything other than the overhead gym lights. I am going to give the Sony 4k line a shot but this MFT's sensor is excellent as is the Leica lens. Build quality is excellent. IS worked fine.
JAYESH P  I have used it in low light with its high sense function and has performed satisfactorily.
RICHARD D  Not as well as our Sony EX1s. About the same as a Panasonic HMC150.
sudhakar c  well tough to answer....it did ok...also it dependents on the low light conditions...my low light did very good.
John L  Pretty awfully. Even in moderately bright indoor light, the camera underperforms. If you use this camera, prepare to bring a light with you everywhere you go.
Shopper  Is a battery with charger included?
Andrew R  Yes, I believe a battery pack and requisite charger are included
JAYESH P  Yes, small battery and its charger is included.
