Features

Panasonic’s AG-HPX370 series P2 HD camera recorder moves you up to a whole new level of production quality. A new, state-of-the-art 2.2 megapixel 3-chip U.L.T. (Ultra Luminance Technology) imager produces stunning HD content in a wide range of shooting conditions, with the F10* sensitivity and image quality of larger imagers. With a superior 10-bit, 4:2:2, full 1920 x 1080 resolution AVC-Intra codec, the HPX370 series can record more image detail more accurately. Ready for global production, the HPX370 series offers international HD and SD standards, including 1080i and 720p as well as industry-standard DVCPRO HD. Data is recorded onto reliable P2 memory cards. With its superb image rendering, long recording time, easy operation and flexible adaptability to IT, the AG-HPX370 series is a powerful answer to today's advanced video production demands. It also offers low operating costs and high environmental performance.

*F10 sensitivity in 1080/59.94i and F11 sensitivity in 1080/50i at 2,000 lx. 

Newly Developed U.L.T. Image Sensor with F10*2 Sensitivity and Superb Image Quality
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. Plus, the same levels of sensitivity and image quality that are found in Interlace mode are now possible in Progressive mode thanks to P.A.P. (Progressive Advanced Processing), a 3D adaptive processing technology.

Fujinon High-Performance 17x Zoom Lens

The AG-HPX370 series comes equipped with a Fujinon 1/3-inch 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 4.5 mm f-value at the wide end, and excellent zoom response. The zoom is comfortable to grip and use. Also, quick zoom and auto cruising zoom functions can be allocated to the VTR and RET switches. 

Chromatic Aberration Compensation (CAC)

This exclusive 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 that is 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 applied in real time. When dark, bright, and intermediate shades are all contained in the same scene, this produces excellent gradation for each shade and minimizes blocked shadows and blown highlights. The images that result are enhanced by a visually wide dynamic range.

*The DRS function does not operate in 1080/25p, 1080/24p or 1080/30p mode.

Flash Band Compensation

In contrast with the CCD image sensor, which accumulates still images of single frames that are exposed with identical timing, the MOS image sensor uses a rolling shutter system that sequentially scans each line of pixels. This lowers power consumption and enables high-speed drive, but because the exposure timing differs for each line, when an external flash is used, it tends to produce images where the brightness is divided between the top and bottom of the image. This is called the flash band effect. The AG-HPX370 series is equipped with highly accurate flash band detection and compensation software on the camera’s signal processing LSI. By generating pairs of frames containing flash bands, and frames in which a flash extends from the previous frame to the entire screen, and then using the compensation process to adjust the level, the flash band effect of MOS-based imagers is eliminated.

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 -3 dB to 12 dB, in 3 dB steps. There is also a USER button - just give it a quick touch to instantly boost the gain by 24 dB.

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. Consuming less power than conventional processors, the new DSP contributes to the AG-HPX370 series outstanding environmental performance.

Scene File Dial

Set 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 (1/6 second in 59.94Hz 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. The AG-HPX370 series also features a synchro scan function for capturing screen shots from a computer monitor.

Advanced Image Adjustments Built-In

• Matrix setting including a Cine-Like mode

• Adjustable H detail level, V detail level, detail coring and skin tone detail

• Adjustable chroma level, chroma phase, color temp and master pedestal

• Knee point settings: Auto, Low, Mid and High

• User files can be saved to an SD card and shared with other cameras. User files are separate from Scene Files.

• 4-position (off, 1/4 ND, 1/16 ND, 1/64 ND) optical neutral density filter wheel

7-Mode Gamma for Richer Gradation

Drawing on technologies developed for the VariCam, Panasonic has equipped the AG-HPX370 series with advanced gamma functions that address seven different shooting scenarios and enhance your creative abilities. This includes the Cine-Like Gamma, which produces the characteristic tone of film recordings.

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.

*In 1080 and 480 modes, the frame rate can be set only to 25p, 24p or 30p.
