Overview

Overview

The Panasonic AG-CX350 4K HDR Camcorder combines video recording, on-air broadcasting, and communication for the next generation of content creators. The AG-CX350 features 4K/UHD resolution, 10-bit depth, HDR-compatible image quality, and a host of recording formats for the ultimate creativity in a compact, lightweight body with low power consumption. It is also equipped with an RTMP/RTSP function for live streaming and NDI HX-ready IP connectivity, to serve as a live camera, and clearly expands the usability of the handheld camcorder beyond conventional news gathering and recording applications to meet a wide range of professional needs.

Wide-Angle 24.5mm Optical 20x Zoom with i.Zoom

This lens features the industry's widest angle of 24.5mm1 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 (35mm equiv.) 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 zoom2.

High-Definition, High-Sensitivity 1" 4K MOS Sensor

The 1" MOS sensor (with approximately 15,030,000 pixels) offers outstanding depth of field and excellent balance between image quality and sensitivity. It supports multiple 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) and F13 (50 Hz) in both UHD and FHD in High Sensitivity mode.

Integrated 5-Axis Hybrid Image Stabilizer

The AG-CX350 features 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 modes3 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).

HDR-Compliant HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma)

The AG-CX350 features HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma)4 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).

Intelligent AF & Focus Assist

The AG-CX350's Intelligent AF auto focus system 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.

Three Manual Rings

The AG-CX350 features (3) Manual Rings for zoom, focus and iris control. Each ring delivers 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.

Cabled/Wireless Remote Control Capability

The remote terminal (2.5mm super mini jack) enables the control of the focus, zoom and iris using a remote controller (3rd-party product; sold separately). It also supports wireless remote control using an iOS or Android OS tablet or smartphone (not included).

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 table in Product Images). 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 processor5

10-bit Variable Frame Rate (VFR) Without Cropping

In UHD, variable frame rate (VFR) recording from 1-60 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.

MOV/AVCHD/P2 MXF6 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 in the future6, enabling AVC-Intra or AVC-LongG recording.

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.

Dual Memory Card Slots Improve Recording Reliability

Two SD memory card slots capable of using SDXC/SDHC/microP2 cards7 enable unlimited8 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 Pre Rec, Interval Rec, and Time Stamp recording functions. 

  • 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.

RTMP/RTSP-Compatible HD Streaming

HD streaming is possible while images are being acquired. Both RTSP and RTMP streaming methods are compatible. Facebook, YouTube, and other
streaming services are supported. The AG-CX350 can be used for live coverage of concerts and sports events as well as for live streaming of breaking news.

NOTE: P2 Network Setting Software is required for the use of the RTMP function. Contact an AbelCine salesperson if you have questions regarding compatibility.

Easy IP Connection: Preinstalled NDI | HX

The AG-CX350 is the industry's first camcorder to support NDI | HX9. Equipped with NDI | HX mode, it allows video transmission and camera control via IP connection, without using an external converter. When connected to a system configured with the AV-HLC100 Live Production Center and HN/UN series PTZ integrated cameras, the AG-CX350 realizes end-to-end live video production of live events as well as web distribution.

Wireless Control from Tablet or Smartphone

The AG-CX350 can be controlled remotely and wirelessly using a tablet/smartphone app10 (downloadable for free from the App Store or Google Play). In addition to zoom, i.Zoom, and focus lens control, the app enables remote control of various other functions, including camera setting, picture quality adjustment, REC start/stop and menu setting. What's more, the app can be used to select the camera to control from up to eight cameras11.

Parallel Output of SDI & HDMI

SDI and HDMI can be output in parallel. Output of UHD video via HDMI and output of HD video in high-image-quality 10-bit, 4:2:2 via SDI enable a variety of uses. In HLG shooting, either HDR or SDR can be selected for each of the SDI, HDMI and LCD video outputs.

TC Synchro Multi-Camera Recording Supported

The TC IN/OUT terminal (BNC) allows synchronization of the time code in multi-camera shooting. The camera number (A to Z) can be added12 to the name of the recording folder to facilitate editing.

Simultaneous Display on High-Brightness, High-Definition LCD and High-Resolution OLED EVF

The AG-CX350 features a new 3.2" HD LCD monitor (approximately 1,620,000 dots). This LCD monitor uses the RGBW (red, green, blue, white) pixel structure to provide high visibility even in bright sunlight. The 3:2 aspect ratio enables the display of timecode and camera status without superimposing on the image. The touch panel function allows convenient touch focus and menu setting. The viewfinder is a high- resolution color OLED (approximately 2,360,000 dots, with an image display area of approximately 1,770,000 dots) that offers superb color reproduction. Since the AG-CX350 newly supports simultaneous LCD and EVF outputs, the LCD monitor can display the captured image at all times even when you look away from the EVF.
