In addition, the AG-CX10 supports the broadcast-ready P2 MXF File Format. Ethernet HD Live Streaming and an NDI4 compatible IP connection function is equipped, and connectivity is provided for using the CX10 as a live camera.

 

 

 

Precise Optical Performance 

The 4-Drive Lens System controls the lens groups independently. This integrated lens offers a remarkably powerful optical 24x zoom that ranges from 25mm2 wide angle to 600mm2 tele i.ZOOM achieves 32x at 4K resolution, and 48x at FHD. Equipped with a LEICA Dicomar Lens world-renowned for its high standards of lens resolution, contrast, and quality, the camcorder produces stunningly beautiful images while suppressing flaring and ghosting. Two Manual Rings are provided, one for focusing and the other for zoom or iris operation. The Manual Rings are different sizes, so the appropriate ring be accurately identified by touch. ND Filters can be selected from 1/4, 1/16, 1/64, and Clear, while glass is newly used as a countermeasure against scorching from sunlight condensation.

 

 

 

 

 

High-speed, High-precision AF Including Face Detection AF/AE

Face Detection AF/AE provides precise focusing and sufficient exposure for subjects, and together with the precise focus lens drive achieves superior focusing speed, stability and tracking performance for both 4K and Full-HD. In addition, subject tracking with color recognition can be activated on the LCD panel.

 

 

 

 

 

Smooth 5-Axis Hybrid Optical Image Stabilization 

For both UHD and FHD modes, in addition to O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization), Electronic Image Stabilization operates to detect and correct handshake in 5 axes, including rotational blurring. The Ball O.I.S. System reduces friction on the drive section, achieving delicate correction even for small-amplitude handshake. This produces beautiful images with suppressed handshake even at high, 24x optical zoom.

 

 

 

 

 

Industry’s Smallest and Lightest Camcorder 

A newly developed fan is at the center of Panasonic’s new heat-dispersing design, creating the industry's smallest and lightest camcorder with integrated lens capable of 4K 60p recording. By borrowing air from the rear panel of the camera and efficiently dispersing heat from the front panel, reliable, extended shooting is achieved.

 

 

 

 

 

High-Quality, Versatile Recording

The Venus Engine, found in almost all of Panasonic’s LUMIX cameras, is also incorporated in these camcorders. This enabled 4:2:2 10-bit internal recording with maximum 29.97p in UHD, and maximum 59.94p in FHD.

When set for 10-bit recording, the camcorder delivers 4K 60p 4:2:2 10-bit HDMI output, enabling high image quality capture with an external recorder. New, highly efficient HEVC recording (LongGOP/10-bit 4:2:0/MOV) is also supported for recording 59.94p at a high bit rate of 200 Mbps. As for file formats, in addition to MOV, MP4, and AVCHD, the AG-CX10 also supports the ideal P2 MXF for the editing system for broadcast stations, and recording by the AVC-Intra/AVC-LongG codecs is supported*.

 

 

 

 

Super Slow-Motion Recording

FHD mode enables slow-motion recording at 120 fps (for 59.94 Hz)/100 fps (for 50 Hz). 10-bit recording is supported, and full-frame images with the image area uncropped are obtained even at high frame rates. Additionally, auto focus can be used in this mode.

 

 

 

 

 

Professional Functionality and Design

A bright video light is built into the handle and can be adjusted between 30% to 100% using the dimmer dial. IR lights5 are supported for IR (Infrared) Shooting for shooting in dark conditions.

The 3.5-inch monitor has 2,760K-dots of resolution, making it approximately 2x brighter and having approximately 2x the number of dots compared to a conventional monitor. It provides higher legibility even under bright sunlight. An electrostatic touch panel improves the operating ease of selecting menu items. Since the 1,555K-dot tiltable viewfinder and LCD output simultaneously, the image being recorded can also be confirmed in the LCD monitor while viewing it on the EVF. Focus Assist functions including Expand, Peaking and One-push AF are included to support fast, accurate manual focusing.

 

 

 

 

 

Dual SD Card Slots

Two SD memory card slots are provided and with unlimited Relay Recording6, the device switches automatically and seamlessly from Slot 1 to Slot 2. Simultaneous Recording or Background Recording is also selectable to match the workflow and card necessity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

48-kHz/24-bit High Resolution Linear PCM Audio Recording 

+48V Phantom Power Supply/MIC/LINE Selectable XLR Audio Input with Manual Volume is equipped for each of 2 channels. Also supported is a 24-bit linear PCM system (MOV/P2 MXF), 16-bit AAC (MP4), or Dolby Audio system (AVCHD) high-quality 2-channel audio recording.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Versatile Network Functions 

A Wi-Fi module is built-in, so there is no need for a separate wireless LAN module, and Wi-Fi connection is possible without additional equipment. Using a tablet application (HC ROP), wireless remote control, including camera settings and lens control, can be set. RTSP/RTP/RTMP/RTMPS-Compatible HD Streaming allows direct connection and streaming over Facebook, YouTube, and other major livestreaming platforms, of concerts, sports events, and breaking news.

In addition, the AG-CX10 has an NDI|HX mode, so an external converter is not needed for data transmission and camera control via IP connection.

 

 

 

 

 

Long Lasting Battery 

The included battery is unobtrusive when attached and enables approximately 4.5 hours of continual operation, a spec you would expect from the company that exclusively supplies battery cells for popular Tesla cars like the Model S, Model X and Model 3.

 

 

 

 

 

Camera Body with Removeable Handle

The included handle unit is easily detached and equipped with a 2-channel XLR Audio Input, audio control, and LED light. Operation of the zoom lever attached to the Handle Unit maintains a constant zoom speed, which can be set in 7 steps from the menu.
