CX350 Image Quality

 

Features

The Wide-Angle Lens, New 1.0-type Sensor and High-Quality Pictures in 4K/HDR

Wide-Angle 24.5mm*1 Optical 20x Zoom, Plus i.Zoom

An image shot in a room using the wide angle.

Panasonic boasts the world’s largest market share in the aspherical lens segment. Its cutting-edge optical technology was maximized in the development of the integrated lens used in the AG-CX350. This lens has the industry’s widest angle of 24.5mm*1 on the wide end and allows recording of wide-angle images with minimal distortion, without the use of a conversion lens. The optical 20x zoom covers up to 490mm telephoto in all modes. Furthermore, the i.Zoom enables seamless zooming of up to 32x in HD or up to 24x in UHD from the telephoto end with no degradation in resolution. The AG-CX350 also comes with digital 2x/ 5x/ 10x zoom.*2

 

*1: In 35mm equivalent. The AG-CX350’s wide 24.5mm angle is the widest in the industry for UHD/FHD (16:9). In the segment of camcorders with integrated lens, the Panasonic AG-UX180 achieved the industry’s widest angle of 24mm in UHD/24p (17:9). For UHD/FHD (16:9), 25.4mm is the widest angle in the industry. (Both as of January 2019, according to a Panasonic survey)
*2: When using the digital zoom, picture quality degrades as the magnification rate increases.

New High-Definition, High-Sensitivity 1.0-type 15M MOS Sensor

The 1.0-type MOS (approximately 15,030,000 pixels) offers an outstanding depth of field and excellent balance between image quality and sensitivity. It supports multi-formats, such as UHD
(3840 x 2160), FHD, HD and SD, and provides images without cropping in all modes. This MOS sensor also boasts high sensitivity of F12 (60 Hz) /F13 (50 Hz) (in both UHD and FHD in High Sensitivity mode).

Built-in 5-Axis Hybrid Image Stabilizer

The AG-CX350 has a built-in hybrid image stabilizer that combines optical and electronic camera shake compensation functions.
It corrects camera shake in five axial directions in all modes* including UHD to provide powerful camera shake compensation power in low-angle shooting, high-angle shooting and all other unstable conditions. There are three modes to choose from: NORMAL (standard), STABLE (effective for fixed-frame shooting) and PAN/TILT (effective in panning and tilting).

* Excluding Super Slow and VFR modes.

HDR-Compliant HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma)

HDR (High Dynamic Range) Image

The AG-CX350 features HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma)* to support HDR (High Dynamic Range). This achieves a wide dynamic range on HDR-compatible TV monitors. The gamma mode can be selected from eight modes (HD, SD, FILMLIKE 1, FILMLIKE 2, FILMLIKE 3, FILM-REC, VIDEO-REC, HLG).

 

* The HLG specification was developed jointly by Japanese broadcaster NHK and the BBC in the UK. It is defined in ARIB STD-B67 and ITU Rec. 2100.

Intelligent AF and Focus Assist

The AG-CX350’s auto focus system is Intelligent AF, which is equipped with a micro drive focus unit to achieve high focusing speed, excellent tracking performance and superb stability. The AG-CX350 is also equipped with Expand and Peaking (simultaneous display possible), Manual Focus Assist, LCD Touch Focus (switchable to Auto Iris or brightness display) and One-Push AF Focus Assist.

Manual Three Rings

The AG-CX350 comes with Manual Three Rings for zoom, focus and iris control. They deliver quick response and provide tactile feel that satisfies professionals.
The zoom lever located at the upper section of the handle has a multi-step variable zoom function, allowing smooth zooming from ultra-low speed when shooting from low angle shooting and when a tripod is used.

Manual Three Rings

Cabled/Wireless Remote Control Capability

The remote terminal (2.5-mm super mini jack) enables the control of the focus, zoom and iris using a remote controller (third-party product). It also supports wireless remote control using a tablet or smartphone (iOS, Android OS). (See "Wireless Control from a Tablet or Smartphone" for details.)

Multi-Codec Recording of High-Quality 10-bit Images without Cropping

New HEVC Codec for High-Image-Quality 10-bit UHD/60p Recording at Low Bit Rate

The AG-CX350 is capable of recording in various formats at different compression rates (see the table below). It can record UHD/60p videos in high-image-quality 10-bit on an SD memory card. It also features a new, high-efficiency HEVC codec (LongGOP, 10-bit, 4:2:0, MOV) . When a PC with 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor is used, the hardware acceleration enables native decoding and playback. Free software, such as VLC Media Player or QuickTime Player, provides smooth playback on a notebook PC or MacBook with Intel Core i7 processor.*

 

* Playback may lack smoothness depending on the PC environment, such as storage and memory devices.

10-bit Variable Frame Rate (VFR) without Cropping

In UHD, variable frame rate (VFR) recording at 1 fps to 60 fps is possible. In FHD, super-slow can be realized at a maximum of 120 fps. Both provide high-quality 10-bit, full-frame pictures with no image area cropping even at high frame rates.

Simulated image

MOV/AVCHD/P2 MXF* File Formats Supported

The AG-CX350 records MOV files that are highly compatible and easy to use. This file format is the same as that used on Panasonic’s compact cinema camera, the AU-EVA1, and supports file names with up to 20 characters, allowing recorded video clips to be easily managed. The AG-CX350 also supports conventional AVCHD recording, including the AVCHD 8 Mb/s mode, used widely as the format in college and professional football coaching analysis. And it will support the MXF P2 file format for broadcasting, enabling AVC-Intra or AVC-LongG recording.*

* AVC-Intra200/100/50 codec will be supported in the future. Use a microP2 card for recording in P2 format.

Freeze Frame (Still Image Capture)

When playing back video clips on the AG-CX350, any desired frame can be captured as a still image (JPEG) and recorded onto an SD memory card. Video playback, frame advance (+/-), and still-image captures can all be done intuitively by touch panel operation.

 

Double Memory Card Slots Improve Recording Reliability

Two SD memory card slots capable of using SDXC/SDHC/microP2 cards*1 enable unlimited*2 relay recording by simply changing SD memory cards. Recording reliability is further improved with simultaneous recording and background recording. And the AG-CX350 is equipped with Pre Rec, Interval Rec and Time Stamp recording functions.

*1 For memory card usage conditions, see the “Recording Media”.
*2 If the Relay recording time reaches 10 hours, shooting will temporarily stop, and then automatically restart a few seconds later. If it is recorded in MOV format, the file will be split every 3 hours and recorded.

Unlimited Relay Recording

Automatically records continuously from Slot 1 to Slot 2. By changing a full card with a new card, images can be recorded continuously for many hours.

Simultaneous Recording

Identical data is recorded onto cards in both slots in this dual recording mode.

Background Recording

Records ordinary Rec Start/Stop-controlled data in Slot 1, and records all data, even when Slot 1 is stopped, in Slot 2.
