Panasonic AG-DVX200 Fixed lens 4K Camcorder
The Panasonic AG-DVX200 is Opening New Paths to Video Production with 4K Quality and Mobility
The AG-DVX200 debuts as the world’s first 4/3-type large format camcorder with integrated zoom lens. Combining digital video technology that Panasonic has developed over its long history of producing broadcast equipment with its expertise in professional camera recorder, the AG-DVX200 blazes an entirely new trail in video production. This new camera recorder captures stunning images with the shallow focus and attractive Bokeh effect of its 4/3-type large-format sensor, and the latitude made possible by the 12-stop V-Log L processing inherited. High-speed processing of these high resolution images by a new 4K engine enables high-quality, multi-format (4K/24p, UHD/60p, FHD/60p) recording.
The AG-DVX200 also features a number of high-end functions to meet video production needs, including Full-HD, 120 fps Variable Frame Rate (VFR) shooting and dual codec recording. And it integrates a newly developed LEICA DICOMAR 4K 13x zoom lens. High-speed, high-precision full-auto functions and professional-level manual functions provide operating ease and mobility that are possible only from a lens-integrated body. The crimson red colouring and stylish carbon-black textured body form a highly impressive and innovative design, in response to the artistic sensibility of video creators. This colour scheme also reflects the expressive capability of the AG-DVX200’s vividly detailed 4K images together with its superb mobility and intuitively easy operation, supporting the everyday demands of active professionals.

New 4/3-type Sensor for Beautiful Bokeh Effects and 4K Resolution
The AG-DVX200 features a 4/3-type, large format image sensor. It creates highly attractive Bokeh effects by blending 4K resolution with shallow depth of field. It also lets you capture clear images with minimal noise when shooting in dimly lit locations.
LEICA DICOMAR 4K Lens
The high-performance LEICA DICOMAR 4K lens has passed the stringent quality standards of Leica Camera AG. A multi-coating process minimises ghosts and flaring, while the use of a low-dispersion glass suppresses chromatic aberration. This results in especially clear images with very little color bleeding.
4K Engine with High-Speed Processing on a New LSI
The 4K engine, which is mounted on the AG-DVX200’s newly developed LSI, quickly processes the massive amount of 4K data. A new noise reduction function also minimises noise when shooting dark scenes with increased gain.
UHD/60p High-Resolution Recording
Recording at a maximum 60p (60 fps) is possible with UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution. It produces smooth, high-resolution images from fast-moving scenes. This is important due to the recent announcement of UHD 59.94 native acquisition.
Variable Frame Rate HD Recording at Max. 120 fps
When recording at high Full-HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, the frame rate can be varied from 2 fps to 120 fps.* Slow-motion images can be achieved by shooting at up to 12x normal speed (in 24p mode), and quick-motion images can be produced by dropping frames.
* When shooting from 2 fps to 96 fps, 28.0mm can be achieved at the wide-angle end, but this is limited to 35.2mm when shooting at 100 fps or 120 fps.
12 stops of Latitude from V-Log L
The AG-DVX200 features a V-Log L function that is equivalent to the V-Log and curve characteristics provided on the new VariCam Series. Its 12-stop wide dynamic range accommodates cinema production work requiring post-process color gradation. In addition to this, gamma curves can be selected from 8 modes, including CINE-LIKE V, CINE-LIKE D, FILMLIKE 1/2/3, HD and SD.
* The VariCam 35 and VariCam LT V-Log has 14+ stops.
High-Quality 4K (UHD) 10 bit 4:2:2 Image Output
The HDMI output terminal enables camerathrough output of 4K (4096 x 2160)/24p and UHD (3840 x 2160)/30p images. This allows uncompressed recording of 10 bit 4:2:2 image quality by external recorders.*
*When HDMI / HD SDI is set to 10 bits, all internal recordings are disabled.
Infrared Shooting Function
The AG-DVX200 has an integrated, detachable IR filter. Its IR mode enables it to record 4K images in the dark. Shooting and recording are possible in a zero-lux environment, such as unlighted nightscapes, animals in nature, and event sites before the lights are turned on.
* An optional IR light is required separately
Newly Developed Integrated Optical 13x Zoom Lens
This 13x zoom lens comprises 17 lenses in 11 groups, including 5 aspheric lenses. It offers a level of mobility that is possible only with an integrated lens, extending from 28 mm wide angle (in FHD mode)*1 to a wide zoom range with F2.8 brightness (at the wide-angle end), for news gathering and video production. The i.Zoom*2 function increases the zooming capability to a maximum of approximately 20x, while maintaining high resolution.
*1: 35 mm film equivalent. Varies depending on the video recording format. FHD: 28 mm, 4K/24p: 29.5 mm, UHD/30p: 30.6 mm, UHD/60p: 37.2 mm
*2: Cannot be used in 4K/UHD shooting modes.
The AG-DVX200 features a high-speed, high precision Intelligent AF system. Its new microdrive focus unit provides the focus lens with an extremely fine, continuous drive, to quickly trace your subject’s movements. The excellent focusing speed, tracking performance and stability of this AF system strongly support the detailed 4K images and shallow focus.
Auto focus operation can be customised by adjusting the AF Speed, AF Sensitivity and AF Area Width.
Advanced Hand-Shake Correction
Advanced Optical Image Stabiliser (OIS): The correction area has been dramatically increased in the newly developed lens. This provides powerful correction even in unstable shooting situations, such as low-angle or high-angle shots. The OIS lens drive mechanism has also been changed to a ball system. The ball OIS system reduces wear on the drive section, and greatly improves correction for small amplitude hand-shake.
5-Axis Hybrid Image Stabiliser:* By using hand-shake correction that combines the effects of both optical and electronic image stabilisation, hand-shake in various directions, including the rotary direction, is detected and corrected.
* Cannot be used in 4K/UHD shooting modes
Triple Manual Ring
The AG-DVX200 features three manual rings for mechanical (cam-driven) Zoom, Focus and Iris control. This manual operation offers a highly familiar, professional feel.
ND Filters, Gain, White Balance
ND Filters: OFF, 1/4, 1/16, 1/64 ND filters built-in.
Gain Selector: Negative gain is added. Select from −6 dB to 24 dB or 0 dB to 24 dB gain for 3-position (L/M/H) allocation.
AWB Selector: Two-value (A/B) memory and presets (3200/5600/VAR) can be selected.
The MP4/MOV codec provides 4K (4096 x 2160)/24p, UHD (3840 x 2160)/60p, and FHD (1920 x 1080) high-bit-rate recording, and the AVCHD codec supports low-bit-rate HD/SD recording. Being able to select from a variety of recording modes, each with a different image quality, frame rate, and bit rate, meets a wide range of applications, from cinema production to Internet distribution.

SD Memory Card U3 Standard for 4K Acquisition
The AG-DVX200 records onto SDHC/SDXC memory cards. Supporting the UHS Speed Class 3 for high-speed data transfer, this enables 4K/24p, UHD/60p, and VFR recording. Approximately 160 minutes of 4K/24p data can be recorded onto a 128 GB SD memory card, or a scene of about 110 minutes of UHD/60p data. (A 64 GB SD memory card will hold approximately 80 minutes of 4K/24p data, or about 55 minutes of UHD/60p data.)
