Panasonic unveils AK-HDX400 DVCPRO HD camcorder
The camera features three 2/3in. 1-million-pixel IT progressive CCDs to produce a high sensitivity of F10 at 2000 lux.
Panasonic has introduced the AJ-HDX400, a 1080i DVCPRO HD camcorder that makes high-definition acquisition more affordable.
The AJ-HDX400 features three 2/3in. 1-million-pixel IT progressive CCDs to produce a high sensitivity of F10 at 2000 lux, low-light shooting down to 0.008 lux (at +68dB) and ultra-sensitive recording up to 74dB in digital super gain mode. It is equipped with 12-bit A/D DSP circuits and an advanced 12-axis matrix color correction system.
The camcorder offers built-in, image-enhancing features, including a Cine-like gamma curve to replicate the look and feel of film; and versatile detail functions, including precise skin tone detail, and shading correction that adjusts for the use of a lens extender. The AJ-HDX400 uses DVCPRO HD-LP 9-micron recording to record 33 minutes on a DVCPRO medium-size cassette.
The camera works with the Panasonic AJ-HD1200A IEEE 1394 DVCPRO HD VTR and Apple’s Final Cut HD software.
The AJ-HDX400 will be available in February.
