Panasonic's new AG-CX350 (4k 60p in 10bit up to 400Mbps HEVC)

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

Specs seem really awesome and as a Sony Z90 shooter this could be next upgrade for when I'm working on documentaries and my typical sports video work. 

Also looks smaller than the Canon XF705 and Sony Z280 which is plus for me since I sometimes have to fly for shoots.

Makes me wonder what Panasonic will do with the DVX200.

Personally, I'd sooner go for the JVC camera : http://pro.jvc.com/prof/attributes/specs.jsp?model_id=MDL102557&feature_id=03 Internal ProRes will be so much easier for editing, but you also have h264 if you need to save space.

Same colour scheme too.

 

That is pretty cool but according to their spec sheet, it only does ProRes at UHD 50p, 60p... weird.

It's a nice camera, probably better than Canon XF705 and JVC because it's very light weigh (1.9 kg to 2.3Kg full operative), JVC starts from 3.0 Kg, Canon 2.70 Kg. So it' no brainer for the specs and weight, hope the autofocus works well.

Yeah if the autofocus is as good as the Sony Z90 I'm sold.

Unless you Need 10 bit is this really a better camcorder than the price you can buy a used  DVX200 for? Used they are close to half the price.

Thing about the DX200 is that its a massive camera, this looks a lot smaller.

Seems like the lens and sensor combination are more capable on the AG-CX350 vs DX200 as the DX200 is only 13x and the image is cropped depending to the resolution and frame rate making it effectively narrower at higher frame rates and resolution combinations. The AG-CX350 is wider to begin with and stays that way at it different resolutions and frame rates.

 

The AG-CX350 seems like a winner if it has dual-native ISOs.  You can also convert HLG to V-Log with Emotive Color. http://emotivecolor.com/hlgtovlog.html?v=1.2

I wish all these cameras started at 16mm on the wide end. I always lack the wide angle for shooting in tight rooms and I almost never go all the way to 500mm or whatever the long end is

Yeah, after having the XC10 (with it's 24-240mm equivalent fixed lens) and my iPhone (and it's fixed lens around 24-28mm equivalent) I switched to the GH5 and bought 16mm and 35mm equivalent primes for my main lenses (as well as some longer ones).  I thought about the 24-240 range and I realised I was sick of the 24-28 range.  I shoot travel and home videos and so mostly my shots are about people in a location, which is 35mm territory when you factor in the practical distance I am from people, and the other main shot is really wide for those grand landscapes, or interior shots.  With the ETC 1.4x crop the 35mm becomes a 50mm, so that adds a bit of reach, and the 16 becomes a 22mm but I hardly ever use that length.  I'm so much happier with 16mm as my wide end.
