IBC 2015: Panasonic DVX200

I stopped by Panasonic's booth to get a closer look at their new DVX200 camera, which they introduced at NAB earlier this year.

Like its namesake DVX100, the DVX200 is designed for handheld, run-n-gun work, but incorporates features commonly found in modern cinema cameras. With 12 stops of dynamic range from the new Panasonic V-Log "L" (Light) gamma, this fixed lens 4/3" sensor camera is a welcome hybrid in the world of large sensor acquisition. The DVX200 has a newly designed Leica lens and the ability to record in 4K (4096x2160) and UHD (3840x2160), as well as HD up to 120 fps. Watch my video above as I get more details on the DVX200 from Luc Bara, Panasonic Technical Product Manager.

This extension unit allows you to send the data from the head back into the recorder and allows you to go up to 5 meters away.

But with the consolidation of media companies, streaming distribution platforms like Netflix and Amazon, and new technologies like 4K and VR, Hollywood is undergoing a major transformation.
