    The Panasonic AG-CX350 4K handheld camcorder is the first in the industry to provide NDI | HX connectivity. Spearheading a new camera series, this model ensures smooth video transmission and camera control over IP for live events and web distribution. The AG-CX350 has the capability to be built in to larger systems, working alongside Panasonic PTZ cameras equipped with NDI | HX and the Panasonic Live Production Centre (AV-HLC100).

    The camera features a wide-angle of 24.5mm, with a high powered optical 20x zoom lens and a new high-definition, high sensitivity 1.0-type 4K MOS sensor to enable 10-bit image quality and 4K (UHD) or FHD resolution recording at up to 50/60p, on to SDXC card. It also features a HLG2 gamma mode to support HDR image production.

    Featuring a high brightness, high definition LCD, the camera provides SDI/HDMI parallel outputs for enhanced operation and usability. Weighing just 1.9kg it has the added benefits of compact size and low power consumption.

    A new, high-efficiency HEVC codec (LongGOP, 10-bit, 4:2:0/MOV) enables smooth playback and editing with a notebook PC or MacBook.

    In addition, the camera supports a streaming function for Facebook and YouTube live with compatible RTSP and RTMP protocols. The camera will also support the MXF P2 file format futureproofing it for potential broadcasting applications, enabling AVC-Intra and AVC-LongG.

    Wide-Angle 24.5mm*1 Optical 20x Zoom, Plus i.Zoom

    Panasonic boasts the world’s largest market share in the aspherical lens segment. Its cutting-edge optical technology was maximized in the development of the integrated lens used in the AG-CX350. This lens has the industry’s widest angle of 24.5mm*1 on the wide end and allows recording of wide-angle images with minimal distortion, without the use of a conversion lens. The optical 20x zoom covers up to 490mm telephoto in all modes. Furthermore, the i.Zoom enables seamless zooming of up to 32x in HD or up to 24x in UHD from the telephoto end with no degradation in resolution. The AG-CX350 also comes with digital 2x/ 5x/ 10x zoom.*2

    *1: In 35mm equivalent. The AG-CX350’s wide 24.5mm angle is the widest in the industry for UHD/FHD (16:9). In the segment of camcorders with integrated lens, the Panasonic AG-UX180 achieved the industry’s widest angle of 24mm in UHD/24p (17:9). For UHD/FHD (16:9), 25.4mm is the widest angle in the industry. (Both as of January 2019, according to a Panasonic survey)
    *2: When using the digital zoom, picture quality degrades as the magnification rate increases.

    New High-Definition, High-Sensitivity 1.0-type 15M MOS Sensor

    The 1.0-type MOS (approximately 15,030,000 pixels) offers an outstanding depth of field and excellent balance between image quality and sensitivity. It supports multi-formats, such as UHD (3840 x 2160), FHD, HD and SD, and provides images without cropping in all modes. This MOS sensor also boasts high sensitivity of F12 (60 Hz) /F13 (50 Hz) (in both UHD and FHD in High Sensitivity mode).

    Built-in 5-Axis Hybrid Image Stabilizer

    The AG-CX350 has a built-in hybrid image stabilizer that combines optical and electronic camera shake compensation functions. It corrects camera shake in five axial directions in all modes* including UHD to provide powerful camera shake compensation power 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).

    *Excluding Super Slow and VFR modes.

    HDR-Compliant HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma)

    The AG-CX350 features HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma)* to support HDR (High Dynamic Range). This achieves a wide dynamic range on HDR-compatible TV monitors. The gamma mode can be selected from eight modes (HD, SD, FILMLIKE 1, FILMLIKE 2, FILMLIKE 3, FILM-REC, VIDEO-REC, HLG).

    * The HLG specification was developed jointly by Japanese broadcaster NHK and the BBC in the UK. It is defined in ARIB STD-B67 and ITU Rec. 2100.

    Intelligent AF and Focus Assist

    The AG-CX350’s auto focus system is Intelligent AF, which is equipped with a micro drive focus unit to achieve high focusing speed, excellent tracking performance and superb stability. The AG-CX350 is also equipped with Expand and Peaking (simultaneous display possible), Manual Focus Assist, LCD Touch Focus (switchable to Auto Iris or brightness display) and One-Push AF Focus Assist.

    Manual Three Rings

    The AG-CX350 comes with Manual Three Rings for zoom, focus and iris control. They deliver quick response and provide tactile feel that satisfies professionals. The zoom lever located at the upper section of the handle has a multi-step variable zoom function, allowing smooth zooming from ultra-low speed when shooting from low angle shooting and when a tripod is used.

    Cabled/Wireless Remote Control Capability

    The remote terminal (2.5-mm super mini jack) enables the control of the focus, zoom and iris using a remote controller (third-party product). It also supports wireless remote control using a tablet or smartphone (iOS, Android OS).
