Panasonic AJ-HPX2000 P2 HD Camcorder with Mic and Viewfinder


The Panasonic AJ-HPX2000 2/3″ 3CCD P2 HD/SD Multi-Format Camcorder brings a lot of flexibility to the table. Whether your production requires HD, SD, 1080i or 720p, the HPX2000 will record your format of choice onto up to five solid-state P2 cards. DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO 50, DVCPRO/DV and even AVC-Intra (using an optional codec board) are all possible with this shoulder-mount ENG camcorder. With its high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, and plethora of gamma settings and scene files, the HPX2000 delivers outstanding professional images and an efficient workflow that make it the ideal tool for digital newsgathering, broadcasting, and even independent productions.

Progressive HD CCD

In the HPX2000 system, a progressive CCD lets you shoot 60p images and use progressive/interlace conversion to attain 1080/59.94i images. This produces outstanding image quality and high sensitivity. It also provides native progressive images in 24p/30p mode.

High-Sensitivity F10 Aperture and Digital Super Gain

The high-sensitivity F10 aperture and digital super gain (frame cumulative mode) let the AJ-HPX2000 record with a high S/N ratio and less of the noise that commonly comes with higher gain. The AJ-HPX2000 also features a line mix function for great fast-action images. The gain, digital super gain and line function can be flexibly combined to achieve highly sensitive recording of up to +74 dB or to suit different shooting conditions.

DRS (Dynamic Range Stretching) Function

DRS recognizes the average brightness of highlight and shadow areas and then automatically adjusts the aperture and uses knee control to suppress blown highlights in the shadow areas. In scenes with mixed dark and light areas, such as when moving from indoors to outdoors, DRS automatically provides a wider dynamic range with minimal blown highlights and blocked shadows, eliminating the need to manually tweak the camera for each specific condition.

Maximum 4x Digital Zoom

The AJ-HPX2000’s digital zoom electronically increases the magnification rate of the lens by 2x, 3x or 4x. HD images retain their superior resolution even with zooming, and–unlike when a lens extender is used–brightness is not reduced. It’s ideal as both a shooting technique and focusing support.

14-bit Digital Processing w/5-Mode Gamma

In the AJ-HPX2000, Panasonic offers a 14-bit A/D conversion system, an upgrade over the conventional 12-bit system. A new high-performance digital signal processing (DSP) circuit is also incorporated. The 12-axis color correction matrix lets you make fine adjustments in specific color regions. Functions such as skin detail let you further fine-tune the image. The DSP circuit also has selectable gamma curves. The mode can be selected from SD, HD, Filmlike 1, Filmlike 2 and Filmlike 3 to expand the video production scope.
