4K Ultra HD Camcorder

We're very excited about this camera! A few DVX200 highlights:

  • Weight: 2.7kg - it’s nearly 2kg lighter than a Sony FS7 with the kit F4 28-135 lens
  • Storage: 2x 32GB Panasonic SDXC UH3 cards to shoot 45 minutes to 1 hour in UHD 50p at 150Mb/s - far cheaper than other media
  • V-Log Lite easily copes with skin tones in full sun, delivers great shadow and reveals excellent detail in blacks.
  • The OLED viewfinder is great to use - 2360000 dots in total with 1.77 million used for the video area. The flip out touchscreen is huge, bright and full HD.
  • Slow Motion: the DVX can shoot variable framerate at up to 120fps in HD mode. It looks fantastic. Even the 100fps at 25p looks seriously slow. 
  • Macro Mode: the 13x zoom lens has a Macro Mode which goes down to 10cm

Following in the footsteps of the breakthrough AG-DVX100, the new AG-DVX200 debuts as the world’s first*1 4/3-type large format, 4K/60p (Use SDXC/SDHC Memory Card compatible with UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) when using high bitrate video recording mode of 100 Mbps or greater) camcorder to feature an integrated zoom lens.

The DVX200 captures stunning imagery by virtue of LEICA DICOMAR 4K 13x zoom lens combined with an advanced large format 4K imager and the blending of aesthetics like shallow focus, attractive Bokeh, and an amazing 12 stop dynamic range made possible by the VariCam style V-Log L processing.

Newly designed lens-integrated body provides excellent mobility and extra flexibility is supported by the compartment with hatch-type cover which protects the battery and terminals from dust and impacts.

The crimson red coloring and stylish carbon-black textured body represents philosophy and advanced features of the new AG-DVX200 which produce emotional and highly detailed 4K images.
