Panasonic AJ-PX230 microP2 Handheld AVC-ULTRA HD Camcorder

The Panasonic AJ-PX230 features a high-performance, compact zoom lens. Zooming from 28 mm to 616 mm (35 mm equivalent), this 22x zoom lens covers a wide field of view, from wide-angle to telephoto, without the need for a conversion lens. Combining 18 lens elements in 12 groups, this advanced lens unit further adds a UHR (Ultra High Refractive) glass element, a low dispersion element and aspherical lenses. This advanced optical technology provides superbly high resolution.

In addition, it is combined with our unique digital signal processing technology, called Chromatic Aberration Compensation (CAC), to minimize color bleeding in the surrounding image areas and to achieve rich expression with finely rendered nuances and excellent shading.

High-Quality or Long Time Recording with AVC-ULTRA

The Panasonic AJ-PX230 features the AVC-ULTRA codec family. To meet the various needs from mastering to streaming, the image quality and bit rate can be selected to match the application.

AVC Intra

An intra-frame compression method that is highly suited to image production. In addition to the conventional AVC-Intra100/50 codec, the AJ-PX230 features the AVC-Intra200 codec with twice the bit rate (10 bit quantization, 4:2:2 sampling, and a bit rate of approximately 200 Mbps for 1080/59.94i). It offers a level of quality that meets the needs, from mastering and archiving.

AVC LongG

This inter-frame compression method achieves highquality 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 provide 10 bit/4:2:2 quality at a bit rate of approximately 25 Mbps.

Separately Positioned XLR Audio Input Terminals

The Panasonic AJ-PX230 is equipped with 2 channel XLR mic/line audio input terminals supporting a +48 V phantom power supply. They are arranged on the front and rear sides of the unit, just like on a shoulder-type model. The front mic terminal is located behind the rear mic mounting section, eliminating problems resulting from catching protrusions on the side panel.

The rear external audio terminals are located on the right side for comfortable holding of the Panasonic AJ-PX230 against the chest during recording, and also permit easy connection and disconnection while holding the camera recorder in shooting position.

    Thanks you very much for recommending this AJPX230 to replace our AG-HPX250 P2 .
    I am ok with recording with Panasonic P2 Micro media, and thank for informing us that the future upgrade will enable us to record in SD card with the same format without compromising the recording quality. AJ-PX230 allowing to record both professional and broadcast quality at reasonable cost
