A video has surfaced from Panasonic, Japan, showing us some of the first footage from the new DVX-200 4K camcorder, I would have liked a lot more colour and low light shots, personally.
Director of Photography:
Finally online! The worldwide first footage of the brand new Panasonic AG-DVX200!
Shot on a pre production model in UHD resolution and 50p. Sadly the compression of Vimeo and YouTube is so high, you just really can’t judge the image. All I can say: This is the perfect camera for Documentaries and fast TV work stuff, where you have to be fast and where you still want to achieve a cinematic image. Due to the M4/3 sensor it’s way easier to focus than with a Super 35 or Full Frame sensor. Almost everything shot full wide open. Native ISO of this camera is 500.
I used the flat V-Log profile, applied VariCam 35 Rec 709 and graded everything very hard + added some grain to the footage. This was shot during the Panasonic #DVX4Ktour. Shot on Location in Kyoto, Japan.
