Panasonic AG-HPX370 P2 HD Camcorder with Fujinon 17X lens -Used

Panasonic’s AG-HPX370 series P2 HD camera recorder moves you up to a whole new
level of production quality. A new, state-of-the-art 2.2 megapixel 3-chip U.L.T.
(Ultra Luminance Technology) imager produces stunning HD content in a wide range
of shooting conditions, with the F10* sensitivity and image quality of larger imagers.
With a superior 10-bit, 4:2:2, full 1920 x 1080 resolution AVC-Intra codec, the HPX370 series can record more image detail more accurately. Ready for global
 production, the HPX370 series offers international HD and SD standards, including
1080i and 720p as well as industry-standard DVCPRO HD. Data is recorded onto
reliable P2 memory cards. With its superb image rendering, long recording time, easy
operation and flexible adaptability to IT, the AG-HPX370 series is a powerful answer
to today’s advanced video production demands. It also offers low operating costs and
high environmental performance.

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.

7-Mode Gamma for Richer Gradation

Drawing on technologies developed for the VariCam, Panasonic has equipped the AG-HPX370 series with advanced gamma functions that address seven different shooting scenarios and enhance your creative abilities. This includes the Cine-Like Gamma, which produces the characteristic tone of film recordings.

AG-HPX370 series Gamma Modes

  • HD NORM:  Suitable for standard HD recording
  • LOW: Works to flatten out a high contrast scene
  • SD NORM: Normal setting for SD
  • HIGH:  Provides more contrast and color gradation
  • B.PRESS:  Provides more contrast and blacks in low contrast scenes
  • CINE-LIKE D: The Cine-Like mode shifted to prioritize dynamic range
  • CINE-LIKE V:  The Cine-Like mode shifted to prioritize contrast

Comes Equipped with AVC-Intra Codec

An AVC-Intra codec board is included as standard equipment.  It allows recording in either of two modes: AVC-Intra 100 for full-pixel HD (1920 x 1080 and 1280 x 720)
images, or AVC-Intra 50 for low-bit-rate, low-cost operation.  AVC-Intra is a new codec that further advances HD production.  It complies with the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 international standard based on advanced image compression technology, and offers both superb image quality and highly efficient compression. It uses an intra-frame compression system to bring important advantages to professional editing.  In the AG-HPX370 series, a new single-chip digital signal processor is integrated with the AVC-Intra codec circuit. This is another way the AG-HPX370 series reduced power consumption.

High-Image-Quality AVC-Intra 100 Mode

With the same bit rate as DVCPRO HD, this mode supports full 10 bit
recordings with 1920 x 1080 pixels. It enables the AG-HPX370 series to
capture master-quality video for high-end video production.

Low-Bit-Rate AVC-Intra 50 Mode

This mode delivers video quality very similar to DVCPRO HD, yet is able to do so at bit rates usually associated with standard definition (e.g., DVCPRO 50). AVC-Intra 50’s lower bit rate doubles the recording time per P2 card over DVCPRO HD and lowers storage requirements for editing.

HD Multi-Format Capability, Including Native 24p

The AVC-Intra 100 and 50 codecs let you record in a choice of HD video formats: 1080/25p, 1080/50i, 1080/23.98p or 29.97p as well as 1080/59.94i. These HD formats bring extra flexibility to all of your production needs. The AG-HPX370 series also supports 720p recording for HD image production in a variety of formats, including 50p, 59.94p, 23.98p and 29.97p
