NEWS: Panasonic Introduces AG-CX350 4K Camcorder with 4K 10-bit 60p
Panasonic has announced the AG-CX350, a 4K 1.0-type handheld camcorder that offers both creativity and connectivity for live events, IP Production, sports, and news gathering.
The Panasonic AG-CX350 is a handheld camcorder that is 4K in 10bit at 60p plus HDR recording which is a nice boost. The new camcorder is equipped with the RTMP/RTSP/RTP protocol for live streaming and NDI | HX-ready IP connection. The camera is fairly lightweight at only 4.2-lbs. (body only), Panasonic states the AG-CX350 is the lightest 4K 10-bit fixed-lens camcorder in its class.
Panasonic he 1.0-type MOS sensor (approx. 15.03-megapixels in UHD/FHD) will give you pretty good shallow depth-of-field however that really isn’t the strength of a smaller 1.0 type MOS sensor.
The Panasonic AG-CX350 can capture in UHD (3840×2160), Full HD (1920×1080), HD (1280×720), and SD (720×480). Like the EVA1, the CX350 offers 10-bit 4:2:2 color sampling with ALL-Intra (400-Mbps) and LongGOP (150Mbps) and can be recorded in UHD up to 29.98p/25p and FHD up to 59.97p/50p. It also supports the 10-bit HEVC codec at UHD up to 59.97p/50p with a low bit rate of 200Mbps. The HEVC 10-bit codec can be natively decoded and played by computers with 7th Generation (or later) Intel Core i7 chips. All of these formats and compression rates can be recorded internally to lower cost SD cards.
