Panasonic AJ-PX270EJ

The AJ-PX270 is the first P2 HD handheld camera recorder with AVC-ULTRA recording and built-in microP2 card slots. In addition to the established AVC-Intra100, it has AVC-LongG for extended recording and AVC-Intra200*2 for master level recording. AVC-LongG25 enables extended 1920 x 1080 10 bit 4:2:2 broadcast quality recording (fourtimes longer than AVC-Intra100)

AVC-ULTRA Codec Family Provides a Wide Range of Recording Bit Rates

With its innovative AVC-ULTRA codec, the AJ-PX270 features both low-bit rate and normal recordings. For high quality recording, the camera records in 100Mbps AVC-Intra100, as well as 200 Mbps AVC-ULTRA Class 200 (optional). For applications where file size is critical, e.g., for wireless feeds, the PX270 records in low-bit rate AVC-LongG for extended recording and AVC-LongG25 enables extended 1920 x 1080 10-bit 4:2:2 broadcast-quality recording (four times longer than AVC-Intra100 for the same memory space). 

New 22x Zoom Lens with Three Manual Rings

A newly designed, compact, 22X zoom lens offers a wide 28 mm to tele 616 mm (35mm equivalent) zoom range. Its three manual operation lens rings — zoom, focus and iris -- provide a comfortable manual control similar to interchangeable lenses, but without the need for actual lens changes. The zoom ring's solid feel and smooth action allows delicate ultra-slow zooming.

In addition, the camera's multi-step zoom control provides fast response and smooth zoom action, providing the creative freedom every camera operator wants. And the zoom control on the handle enables variable speed zoom, allowing fine zoom control even for low angle shots. 

Network Function with Wireless Connection

Networking functions are included as standard, and options are available to allow for proxy video to be automatically uploaded to the cloud and for compatibility with a planned cloud workflow, allowing immediate editing from a remote location.

The PX270 features a Wireless LAN function via an optional Wireless LAN dongle and supports the existing Panasonic live uplink solutions. Dongle support for wireless workflow over a mobile 3G/4G/LTE network is also scheduled for the near future. Thanks to these wireless features, users of the AJ-PX270 can easily uplink low-bit rate proxy data and full quality broadcast content. The handheld camera's network function makes the production work-flow more efficient and accelerates the broadcasting work-flow from shooting to on-air.

Two microP2 Card Slots

Two microP2 card slots enable the ultimate cost-effective operation. The microP2 card, with the same reliability as the P2 card, can be used without an adapter
