Panasonic introduces AG-HPX500 camcorder

Panasonic has introduced the AG-HPX500, a new shoulder-mounted P2 HD camcorder that combines 2/3in 3-CCD pickup, DVCPRO HD, 4:2:2 sampling and independent frame encoding with interchangeable lenses and variable frame rates.

The 8.2lb AG-HPX500 features a digital signal processor (DSP) with 14-bit A/D conversion and 19-bit inner processing that handles HD/SD format conversion simultaneously.

The AG-HPX500 records in 32 HD and SD formats, including 1080i and 720p in 100Mb/s DVCPRO HD. The camera records on removable P2 solid-state memory cards.

The AG-HPX500 has four P2 card slots and can record up to 64 minutes in DVCPRO HD, 128 minutes in DVCPRO 50 and 256 minutes in DVCPRO on four 16GB P2 cards. The camera also natively supports recording in 720p that can significantly increase record times.

For basic P2 HD recording, clip previewing and simple editing, the AG-HPX500 can be connected to a laptop via USB 2.0 or IEEE 1394 interface.
