Panasonic’s top of the line camera is a 1920x1080, 10-bit 4:2:2 color sampling beauty. It uses a 2.2 million pixel 3-CCD block and records using the new AVC-intra codec to capture true native 1080p images at 24p, 25p & 30p frame rates. It can also record in DVCPRO HD.


The AJ-HPX3000 records onto the P2 card system of solid state flash memory. With five card slots and using the highest quality AVC-intra 100 codec, five 32G P2 cards will capture 200 minutes of 1080/24p material. Using the AVC-intra 50 codec (similar in quality to DVCPRO HD) yields twice as much recording time. There is a Firewire port as well as USB 2.0 ports and a convenient flip-out LCD screen.


The HPX3000 also offers the revolutionary new Chromatic Aberration Compensation (CAC) that electronically reduces color shift and optical registration issues that can hinder 3-chip camera systems. The Dynamic Range Stretcher (DRS) function can expand the exposure range of the camera without creating excessive banding in highlights or blocking in shadows. The HPX3000 sports and extremely low noise floor for an exceptionally clean image. The camera also features six gamma modes including the popular Film-Rec mode from the VariCam.
