Panasonic AG-HPX300 with 17x Lens


Used Panasonic AG-HPX370 with 17x lens, plate, and case


Panasonic brings professionals a new style of camera-recorder.  The AG-HPX300 debuts with a totally redesigned body that’s compact, lightweight and has a low center of gravity.  Mobility is outstanding. Operation is easy. And the AG-HPX300 comes packed with Panasonic’s most advanced P2 HD technology.   Featuring a newly designed image sensor, the AG-HPX300 supports AVC-Intra, the newest motion image compression codec in addition to the DVCPRO codecs. Data is recorded onto reliable P2 memory cards.  With its high picture quality, superb image rendering, long recording time, easy operation and flexible adaptability to IT, the AG-HPX300 is a powerful answer to today’s advanced video production demands.  It also offers low operating costs and high environmental performance.

Newly Developed 2.2-Megapixel Image Sensor

The AG-HPX300 boasts the 3 Full HD MOS image sensors for RGB.  They are 1/3-inch, 2.2-megapixel (1920 x 1080) image sensors which is capable of acquiring full-HD images.  This new sensor and Newly designed signal process LSI is the key technology behind the AG-HPX300’s superior picture quality. It also helps make possible the compact size, light weight and low power consumption that distinguish the AG-HPX300.

Fujinon High-Performance 17x Zoom Lens

The AG-HPX300 comes equipped with a Fujinon 1/3-inch 17x zoom lens.  Optimized for use with the AG-HPX300, this high-performance HD lens incorporates advanced broadcast lens technologies to achieve a compact size, light weight, 4.5mm f-value at the wide end, and excellent zoom response. The zoom is comfortable to grip and use. Also, quick zoom and autocruising zoom functions can be allocated to the VTR and RET switches.

Chromatic Aberration Compensation (CAC)

This exclusive technology sets up a conversation between lens and camera which allows for a highly sophisticated algorithm to be deployed that will automatically compensate the registration error that is caused mainly by lens chromatic aberration, and minimize the circumjacent blur.

Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS)

In scenes with mixed contrast, such as when panning from indoors to outdoors, the DRS function automatically suppresses blocked shadows and blown highlights. A gamma curve and knee slope are estimated to match the contrast of each pixel, and applied in real time. When dark, bright, and intermediate shades are all contained in the same scene, this produces excellent gradation for each shade and minimizes blocked shadows and blown highlights. The images that result are enhanced by a visually wide dynamic range.

3-Position Gain Selector / 24dB Gain-Up Function

There is a 3-position gain selector, with L, M and H settings. To each setting you can assign a gain value from −3 dB to 12 dB, in 3 dB steps. There is also a USER button –- just give it a quick touch to instantly boost the gain by 24 dB.

20 bit Digital Signal Processor

The AG-HPX300 incorporates a high performance 20 bit DSP that handles image rendering processes such as gamma and various detail enhancement functions with
exceptional precision. Consuming less power than conventional processors, the new DSP contributes to the AG-HPX300’s outstanding environmental performance.

Scene File Dial

Set this dial for an instant set of shooting conditions. Six preset files are
provided, and you can change any of the six file names and their settings as
desired. You can also store and load the settings to an SD card.
