Panasonic is about to ship their two new models of its UX series of 4K camcorders, the AG-UX180 and AG-UX90. These new cameras feature a newly-designed Leica Dicomar 4K compact lens with a wide 24mm angle, a 1.0-type MOS sensor, and support for MOV, MP4 and AVCHD file formats.
“With an increasing demand for 4K video content, Panasonic is introducing the UX series to make 4K acquisition even more accessible to video professionals,” said Steven Cooperman, Senior Product Manager, Panasonic System Communication Company of North America. “UX camcorders will provide high-mobility shooting and workflow equivalent to our existing professional integrated-lens handhelds.”
The UX series will support recording up to 4K (4096×2160, 24p only) and UHD (3840×2160). (The AVCCAM series allowed recording up to FHD/1920×1080.) UX camcorders will use the SD Memory Card1 as recording media. The UX Premium Model AG-UX180 supports, in addition to 4K and UHD, dual codec recording (UHD2/FHD), IR recording in low light, and 3G SDI/HDMI2.0 output. The UX camcorders’ 1-inch (effective size) MOS sensor ensures sensitivity equivalent to that of conventional handheld cameras. Variable frame rate (VFR) recording functionality (2-60 fps) is planned in FHD mode.
Both cameras come with Optical Image Stabilization, Intelligent Auto Focus, and relay and simultaneous recording with a dual SD memory card slot.
Panasonic will offer the AG-UX90 in November at a price of $3,395 ex GST NZ, while the AG-UX180 will come out in December for $5,200 ex GST NZ.
