Panasonic AG-DVX200

Some more footage emerges from Japan using engineering samples from the Panasonic DVX200. Panasonic seem to be throwing endless amounts of money producing well shot footage.

Panasonic “The first official footage of Panasonic’s new AG-DVX200 4K camcorder, that was shot by two engineering samples of DVX200.
4K monitoring was used by a new FZ-Y1CH TOUGHPAD 4K that is the world’s first tablet PC equipped 20” 4K resolution LCD touch panel and HDMI 2.0 input.

Recording format/mode: UHD (3840 x 2160) 29.97p / MOV (100Mbps, SD card recording) and VFR120p on FHD (1920 x 1080) 29.97p / MOV (50Mbps, SD card recording)

V-Log L (Beta version) was used over full length. (Grading tool : DaVinci Resolve)”

This is the YouTube version make sure you watch it in 4K.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. Absolutely outstanding filming footage, film maker knows what the’re doing to bring the best out of the camera (or nay camera I would imaging). Are normal videographers capable of getting these results? Hmmmm?

    But goes to show that this camera can match up to the DSLRs somewhat in the right hands, and the results are outstanding. Has to be much easier to film with too?

    Wonder if filming in V’Log, if you can get a normal sharp HD output to the LCD and attached HD monitor that you can actually see and focus with?

  2. Regardless of all the great features this camera offers, Panasonic has made a serious mistake.

    In 2015, I wouldn’t even consider buying the DVX-200 without internal 4:2:2 recording.

    4K is a feature I could benefit from occasionally, but recording 1080P 4:2:2 internally is a feature I would benefit from 100% of the time.
