The Panasonic shoulder-type AJ-PX380G Camera Recorder (body only, accessories sold separately) raises the bar for Broadcast-quality image acquisition combined with compact, lightweight mobility, while adding functionality that enhances network-based workflows and enables simple, yet excellent cost performance. It has a 1/3-type 2.2-megapixel 3MOS sensor that achieves high S/N, high sensitivity, and wide dynamic range. AVC-ULTRA* codecs give you a choice of the most suitable bit-rate for your needs, from HD-quality 1080/60p (50p) 4:2:2 10-bit recording to low bit-rate FTP transmission and streaming, for broadcast-level video acquisition. Network functions feature support for wired and wireless LAN, as well as 4G/LTE connectivity. The onboard Camera Adapter function provides simple dual BNC cable base station connectivity for SDI input. All of this makes the AJ-PX380G a simple and cost-effective solution to a wide range of video applications, from studio camera operation to ENG to relay, live streaming.

* AVC-ULTRA: Panasonic's professional video codec family. The AJ-PX380G does not support all of the formats included in the AVC-ULTRA family.

Panasonic AJ-PX380G Includes:

  • AJ-PX380G Camera Recorder Body
  • Shoulder Strap
  • Mount Cap

Panasonic AJ-PX380G Features:

  • Compact, Lightweight, 1/3 Shoulder-Type Camera-Recorder -Weighs approximately 6.0 lbs (2.7 kg), and only about 10.47 lbs (4.75 kg) withlens and EVF (both sold separately) mounted. This combineswith the compact body size for excellent mobility in news gathering and otheractive uses.
  • 1/3-Type Bayonet Mount Interchangeable Lenses - Broadcastand professional 1/3-type zoom lenses available from various manufacturers ina wide range of variations and performance can be used.
    • High Sensitivity, Low Noise, 1/3-Type 3MOS Sensors 2.2-megapixel 1/3-type 3MOS (RGB) image sensors offer full-pixel HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, F11 (59.94 Hz) or F12 (50 Hz) sensitivity and low noise. They also achieve rich gradation and vibrant color reproduction. The 1/3-type image sensors achieve the same maximum 600% level of dynamic range as other high-end shoulder-type models.
  • 600% Dynamic Range - Rich data is captured all the wayfrom highlights to shadows, to render truly realistic images. Features such ascolor grading also expand post-production flexibility.
    • FILM-REC Gamma: This function was made possible by the new 600% dynamic range. It achieves a cinematic latitude that exceeds the CINE-LIKE D mode in our previous 1/3-type camera recorder. Gamma curves can be selected from 7 modes (HD/SD/FILMLIKE 1/FILMLIKE 2/FILMLIKE 3/FILM-REC/VIDEO-REC).
    • DRS (Dynamic Range Stretch): Suppresses blocked shadows and blown highlights to achieve a visually wide dynamic range.
  • Built-in Electronic Level Gauge - The electronic levellets you easily confirm camera tilting on the LCD monitor screen. It helps tokeep the camera level during handheld shooting, low-angle shooting andhigh-angle shooting.
  • High-Quality Image Processing and Versatile Image Settings:
    • CAC (Chromatic Aberration Compensation): When using a CAC compatible lens, the small amount of circumjacent chromatic aberration (circumjacent blur) that is not corrected by the lens is compensated by this process.
    • Advanced Flash Band Compensation (FBC): This function detects and precisely compensates the flash bands (bands of light and dark) that often occur in cameras equipped with a MOS sensor.
    • Setting Items: H detail, V detail, detail coring, skin tone detail, chroma level, chroma phase, color correction, master pedestal, knee (auto/manual/off), matrix (norm1/norm2/fluo/cine-like), high color, white clip.
  • Advanced Focus Assist Functions - A variety of focusassist functions support quick and accurate focusing in manual focus mode.
    • Focus-in-Color: Emphasizes the image areas in focus by marking the edges in red, green or blue.
    • Expand: Enlarges the center portion for increased visibility.
    • Focus Bar: The meter graphically displays the focus level.
  • Professional Shooting Functions:
    • Scan Reverse: Displays/records images in vertically or horizontally inverted orientation.
    • Digital Zoom: 2x/4x digital zoom.
    • Electronic Shutter with Slow Shutter Capability: The shutter speed can be set in seven steps between 1/60 and 1/2000 second (60i/60p mode). It is also equipped with Slow and Synchro Scan (variable) mode. The shutter opening angle (deg value) can be set with synchro scan mode.
    • Shockless Auto White Balance: A smooth transition occurs when switching White Balance modes. This is effective, for example, when moving from outdoors to indoors.
    • AWB: Auto White Balance is equipped with ATW (auto tracking). The AWB selector can be switched between 3 positions: binary (A/B), memory and preset (3200/5600/VAR).
    • Three-position Gain Selector: The three-position gain selector can be assigned with gain levels selected from a range of –3 dB* to +18 dB to its L, M, and H positions.
    • * -3dB is used for HIGH SENS. mode only.
    • • +36 dB Super Gain: +24 dB/+30 dB/+36 dB Super Gain function enable extra-high sensitivity.
    • • Optical ND Filters: Four-positions (CLEAR, 1/4 ND, 1/16 ND, 1/64 ND).
  • User Interface "SmartUI" - The user interface consists ofan LCD display and multiple switches. Multiple functions can be set easilywith minimal operation.

See the table onpage 6 of the Panasonic AJ-PX380G Datasheet under the "Documentation"tab.
    • AVC Intra: An intra-frame compression method that is highly suited to image production, AVC-Intra100/50 codec (10-bit quantization, 4:2:2 sampling).
    • AVC LongG: This inter-frame compression method achieves high quality HD recording at a low bit rate. Ideal for providing on-air content direct from the shooting location and for workflows using content transferred over the internet. Three bit rates are available:
    • AVC-LongG50/25/12 Mbps. AVC-LongG25 provides 4:2:2 10-bit quality at a bit-rate of approximately 25 Mbps.

See the table (AVC-Proxy Recording Modes and Recording Signals) on page 6 of the Panasonic AJ-PX380G/AJ-PX380GF Datasheet under the "Documentation" tab.
    • * Proxy data cannot be recorded when using the Loop Rec or Interval Rec function. Proxy data is low-resolution video and audio data with time code, metadata, and other management data in a file format.
    • The use of DCF Technologies is under license from Multi-Format, Inc.
  • Full Frame Progressive Recording - 1080/60p* (50p) fullframe progressive recording is supported in the AJ-PX380G. In addition tobeing able to record with the AVC-Intra100 or AVC-LongG25/LongG12 codec, theAJ-PX380G is capable of camera through output from the SDI OUT 1terminals.

    • microP2 card: While inheriting the high reliability of the P2 card and maintaining the large capacity of 64 GB¹, the microP2 card was greatly downsized to match the size of an SD Memory Card, resulting in a considerable reduction in cost.
    • Content Protection System (CPS): A security function featured on the microP2 card. The content recorded on the card is locked with a password to protect against unauthorized access. This prevents data from being stolen and enables secure media control.
    • ¹ microP2 and P2 cards cannot be simultaneously recorded on.
    • NOTE: Total card capacity includes space for data management, such as system data; therefore, the actual usable area is less than the capacity indicated on the card. See the "Recording Times" table on Page 6 of the Panasonic AJ-PX380G/AJ-PX380GF Datasheet under the "Documentation" tab for recording times.
  • Multifunctional Recording Including SimultaneousRecording:
