The Panasonic AJ-PX270 microP2 Handheld AVC-ULTRA HD Camcorder is a compact camcorder that draws many of its design features from Panasonic's shoulder-mounted line of camcorders. It features a 1/3" MOS imager that captures 1920 x 1080 at up to 60p, and a 22x optical zoom lens, with optical image stabilization. It features a single P2 card slot, dual microP2 card slots providing a variety of recording options, and a single SD card slot for recording proxy files and camera settings. The AJ-PX270 features AVC Ultra recording, which allows for expanded recording options. In addition to the standard frame rates, the camera will also record in variable frame rates at 1080p, from 1 to 60 fps in 25 steps. Taking a page from the larger shoulder mount rigs, the camera features a front-mounted audio input, for a camera-mounted mic, and a rear-mounted audio XLR input for a second microphone. It features a 3G-SDI output for integrating into an SDI infrastructure and outputting 1920 x 1080p60 video.
The HDMI output allows you to monitor on lower-cost consumer monitors. The camera features a USB 3.0 connector with USB Host capabilities, a 2.5mm zoom s/s control jack, a 3.5mm focus/iris control jack, as well as USB 2.0 and LAN ports. Advanced Flash Band Compensation (FBC), compensates for dark areas in the frame that can occur when a still flash goes off. The FBC adjusts the image to minimize the appearance of the dark areas. The 22x optical zoom lens has a 35mm focal length equivalent to 28-616mm, so you have the focal range from wide to long covered. It features Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), which is necessary when handholding with a long lens. The AJ-PX270 features slots for available P2, microP2, and SD cards. This provides you with a wide choice of media to choose from. If you already have P2 cards, the AJ-PX270 is compatible with them. It features two microP2 slots that allow for a variety of recording functions.
This extends the usable life of the microP2 card, as all the memory in the card is written to, instead of just a portion getting most of the writing / rewriting. This mode is especially suited to recording events that do not occur at a predetermined time, allowing you to set the camera up, start recording, and not worry about missing the action while changing cards, or filling up the cache, and losing the shot because you hit record too late. The camera also features a dedicated SD card slot that allows you to record proxy files to an SD card, as well as loading and save scene files and updates. The PX270 features a 2.5mm jack for remote zoom s/s control and a 3.5mm jack for remote focus/iris control. The camera uses standard streaming protocols. Using an available AJ-WM30 USB dongle, you can connect the camera to a Wi-Fi network and transfer files to an FTP server.
This function is dependent on the protocols supported by the available receiving device and the compatibility with the AJ-PX270. This battery is not compatible with previous Panasonic cameras as it is slightly wider than previous generations of batteries. However, you can use available CGA-D54 batteries to power the AJ-PX270. The camera features a battery charger and a power supply, so you can charge a battery while powering the camera with a separate power supply.
