Packed into a compact body and offering the on-site mobility and portability, it enables high-quality 4K 50p/60 recording. Achieving high-spec optical performance with a Wide-Angle 25mm1 Lens and 32x i.ZOOM (4K recording), exclusive high-precision AF provides high-speed, accurate focusing for both 4K and Full-HD shooting.

The AG-CX10 camcorder is well suited for reportage and interview style shooting, events coverage and sports. Wi-Fi supports HD Live Streaming using only the camcorder.

Panasonic's exclusive high-precision Auto Focus (AF) provides high-speed, accurate face detection and focusing for both 4K and FullHD shooting. The AG-CX10 has two manual rings, selectable 1/4, 1/16, 1/64 ND filter, a built-in and adjustable LED video light, and 24-bit linear PCM audio recording.

Handheld work during difficult low-angle and high-angle shooting is simple using the AG-CX10. In addition to Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS), Electronic Image Stabilisation operates to detect and correct handshake in 5 axes, including rotational blurring.

LEICA DICOMAR LENS

  • This high-performance lens has passed the stringent inspection standards of Leica Camera AG for aspects such as resolution and contrast.
  • In addition to rendering sharp, crisp images, it produces the distinctive nuances and subtle shading that Leica lenses are renowned for.

1/2.5-TYPE SENSOR

  • Increasing the readout speed has made it possible to handle large-volume 4K data at a fast 60 fps/50 fps.
  • This suppresses the rolling shutter distortion that often occurs when shooting moving subjects.

VENUS ENGINE

  • The Venus Engine, which contains technologies accumulated with LUMIX, is newly incorporated in camcorders.
  • This high-speed LSI processes the massive volume of 4K data quickly and accurately while reducing noise.
  • 4:2:2 10-bit

WIDE 25MM*2 ANGLE

The integrated lens boasts the industry's widest angle of 25 mm at the wide-angle setting. It enables wide-angle shooting with little distortion, without the use of a wide conversion lens and also allows video recording/production in narrow spaces.

24X OPTICAL ZOOM, 48X (FHD) / 32X (UHD), I.ZOOM

Covers the range of 25.0mm wide angle to ultra-telephoto 600mm at UHD/FHD. (35mm film camera equivalent) The i.Zoom function increases the zooming capability to a maximum of approximately 48x FHD (32x UHD) while maintaining the beauty of high-definition image quality.

TWO MANUAL RINGS AND ND FILTER

The AG-CX10 comes with two manual rings for zoom, focus and iris control. The zoom speed can be varied by applying pressure to the zoom seesaw switch on the body.

Built-in ND filters can be selected (1/4, 1/16, 1/64, or OFF) in order to match the shooting environment and suppress the amount of incident light.

KEEP YOUR OBJECT IN FOCUS

5-AXIS HYBRID O.I.S. (UHD/FHD)

The built-in Hybrid image stabilizer ensures powerful camera shake compensation in five axial directions including rotational blurring in all modes. Thanks to this functionality powerful camera shake compensation is made possible in low-angle shooting, high-angle shooting and all other unstable conditions. There are three modes to choose from: NORMAL (standard), STABLE (effective for fixed-frame shooting) and PAN/TILT (effective in panning and tilting).

What is HEVC [H.265], and why does your production need it?

H.264 is one of the most ubiquitous acquisition video compression standards on the market. It’s used for everything from capture on a mobile phone to delivery on most web platforms, including social networks such as YouTube and Facebook (live and on-demand). The sheer flexibility of H.264 has resulted in it being one of the most enduring standards to date. It’s still likely to be your primary delivery codec for some time to come.

AV meets IP meets IT with Panasonic at ISE 2020

Those with some grey hair like me might think eSports refers to a person from Yorkshire’s exercise regime, but I asked my 10-year-old and he says eSports is the fastest growing sector in the AV industry. At ISE this year Panasonic combines its latest broadcast and live entertainment products to create an eSports arena that attendees can actually participate in.  Watching other people play computer games is my idea of purgatory, but it appears I’m in a minority, and millions of 10 to 20-year olds with disposable income would rather watch eSports than Sky Sports.

New launches at ISE 2020

Here's an overview of our vendors exhibiting at ISE 2020. Please call us on +44 (0)1457 851000 if you would like to book a stand tour with one of our manufacturers. BLACKMAGIC DESIGN HALL 3, STAND C140 The Video Assist 12G 5” and 7” monitor recorders are now shipping. The original HD versions were incredibly popular with AV technicians who wanted to verify SDI and HDMI feeds and check waveform levels. For production teams, their 4K HDR capture makes them a superb on-camera SD card recorder. The ATEM Mini is a very small, cost-effective 4 channel HDMI video switcher with streaming output. Great as a portable mixer or a signal switcher, it’s being adopted by everyone from conference producers to AV technicians looking for simple HDMI switching.

Why a 4K camcorder is (way) better than a phone

At a recent conference, one of the delegates drew my attention to a new BBC Academy training video on using smartphones for journalism. I was particularly interested because I’d just bought myself a smartphone with a decent stills camera. My wife is really pleased about this because now when we go on holiday, or walk up the rugged Wolstonbury Hill near my home, I can carry my share of water, dog treats, snacks etc. because I’m not carrying five lenses and my DSLR in a backpack the size of a parachute.
