Ogy Stoilov reports in 4K Shooter about Panasonic's AG-DVX200, with its 4/3 CMOS sensor and 13x fixed zoom lens. Stoilov writes, "It is a true professional camcorder in every sense of the word – 4K/UHD up to 60p, 120fps variable in Full HD, records onto SDXC cards, dual XLR audio inputs, built-in ND filters, dedicated buttons for ISO/Gain focus assist and other key functions, a multitude of user assignable buttons, three independent lens rings for manual control over iris, zoom and focus, plus the new V-Log L flat gamma for an impressive 12 stop dynamic range and 5-axis hybrid image stabalization."

Of the footage below, Panasonic says, "This is the first official footage shot with the new Panasonic AG-DVX200, one of the newest additions to our ever expanding range of 4K broadcast equipment. The footage was shot using two AG-DVX200 engineering samples. During the development of this piece the FZ-Y1CH 4K Toughpad (the world’s first PC equipped, 20” 4K resolution tablet with HDMI 2.0 input) was used to monitor the footage in crisp 4K image quality.

Recording format/mode:

UHD (3840 x 2160) 29.97p / MOV (100Mbps, SD card recording)

VFR120p on FHD (1920 x 1080) 29.97p / MOV (50Mbps, SD card recording)

V-Log L (Beta version) was used over full length.
