Categories: Miscellaneous 4 Comments


A camera of firsts. It’s the first to feature native AVC-Ultra and built-in microP2 card slots, plus 10-bit 100Mb/s 1080p recording. AVC-LongG is standard and AVC-Intra200 is optional.

 Like the ground-breaking HPX600, the PX5000 features wireless and wired connectivity with Wi-Fi, USB and Gigabit Ethernet, including wireless control of key camera functions from a smart phoneAs an option it supports live video uplink transmitter devices.


  • Native AVC-ULTRA recording
  • Built-in microP2 card slots
  • 720p, 1080p/i, 1080/50p recording
  • 4:2:2 recording in Full HD
  • LCD colour viewfinder (doubles as a LCD monitor when open)
  • Simplified waveform and vectorscope
  • Smart user interface

HDW : This looks the business a cracking shoulder mount camcorder that in spec alone will kick the Sony PMW-500 in the pants, this is the first broadcast camcorder with 1080 50p and micro P2…fantastic.

    I have a HPX370 that I love, but when I look at this one I can’t stop drooling. Specs are awesome.

    Absolutely amazing…

    But, I have an AG-AC-160A which, for me, has been fantastic, so I will stick with this.

    AJ 2/3″ series cams coupled w/ quality HD lenses are amazing. It puts your production values to the next level – more toward real network grade vs local. Color, contrast, and overall picture quality is far superior to anything below it (AG series). I already owned the AJ-HPX3100 for several years and it’s a very high quality cam. I prefer the upcoming Varicam 3 over this. If you don’t need 120 fps Varicam 3, then this may be a good option.
