Re: Panasonic AG-PX270

Re: Panasonic AG-PX270

It took some help to get the menu to work on the AJ-PX270 - you have to hold the MENU button down for 3 seconds...

Also - no AVCultra option in the menu?

Re: Panasonic AG-PX270

Actually, the AVCUltra refers to the "family" of codecs which include the AVCi and LongG variations. So they are ALL AVCUltra.

Re: Panasonic AG-PX270

AVC-ultra 200 is a paid upgrade. I ended up shooting 1080 60p AVC-Intra 100 cine-v at sunset last night.

Re: Panasonic AG-PX270

Downloadable original P2 card file for loading into your NLE is posted. Shot with the camera in the front yard as the sun was going down. Close ups, mediums and wide shots. All shots AVCintra-100 60p / 5600K white balance / F5: CINE V. I reset the camera to factory settings and reset the scene file before shooting. I did a black balance as well.

It is a 1.45gb download and may take some time depending on your connection speed. Download will start instantly. Make your browser window full size so you don't start downloading it twice.

Re: Panasonic AG-PX270

Hi Phil, how good was it in dim lighting situations considering the 1/3 inch chip?

Re: Panasonic AG-PX270

I cancelled my order because importing it into to FCP X it didn't look good . Very noisy then I did some research on it . An article said the Long -Gop is cleaner but that it is not supported i FCPX :(

Thats a deal breaker for me

Re: Panasonic AG-PX270

Low light was good in my use and comparison so far. Really good for a 1/3" sensor. It's a stop faster than the best previous 1/3" Panny cameras and it handles noise better too so going to +6 or +12db isn't bad at all. Definitely a welcome bonus on top of everything else it offers.

Re: Panasonic AG-PX270

Please do not ever take any of the footage I post on the Internet to download and manipulate in your video editing system and claim it at the primary reason to buy or not to buy a camera. When I get a new camera I reset all the settings and set the camera to manual and build up a couple settings / controls. I report what I have set the camera to. I sometimes have time to take requests and shoot footage again a little differently. I sometimes get original media cards back from experienced camera operators and share that too. I know what I shoot isn't a proper "test" with a charts and such and I am not on a film set shooting extra footage over someone's shoulder, but what I provide should simply be a conversation starter. We sell all cameras and have lots of options. There is this thing called a learning curve. We are all on it somewhere.

Re: Panasonic AG-PX270

Hey Guys, we are a hindu temple located in India and we recently bought a few of the Panasonic AJ-PX270 P2 cameras and we are having some difficulty optimizing the settings. We do a daily broadcast every morning, and have been seeing some problems with the quality of the video. Attached below is a sample of the type of shooting done with the camera. Please note the lighting, the background and clothing of the personnel in the frame, as they are the same more or less everyday. Most of the lighting is composed of halogen lights and or tube lighting with occasional sunlight peaking through. We have been previously using the Panasonic AC 160 and loved those results. When we compare it to the new PX-270 we've found that the quality and sharpness on the PX-270 is a bit lower than the AC 160. Is this something that is done post production? or is there a setting for that?. Any idea as to what could be causing this? Any and all help is appreciated here. Thanks again! The video in the link is has 3 cameras The side cameras are the PX270's and the center camera is AC160. The video is a reference for the type of shooting we do. On the PX270 our resolution is 1920 X 1080 at 50p, the codec is AVC-LongG 25. We can't get the PX270 to look as sharp and detailed as the AC160.



Thanks,
-Parth Savalia
