What does it matter what it looks like? The image quality and how easy (or not) it is to use are the important things. If you don't like the colour, buy a cover or get your paint-brush out! ;-)

Panasonic DVX200 - NAB 2015 - YouTube
Cinema5D has a guy from the same booth directly contradicting what the guy said in this video.


No way it's 4:4:4. It's 8bit 4:2:0 internal. If only Blackmagic made a HDMI 2.0 Hyperdeck Shuttle, but alas, only the 12G Hyperdeck can capture 4:2:2 from this camera.

Re: Panasonic 4K DVX200

I did see the other videos before I posted that and I'll still be hoping it'll get at the very least 10 bit and 422. If not than I can easily see this camera being priced anywhere from $4,000 to $4,500 if all it's able to do internally is 8 bit and 420.

Re: Panasonic 4K DVX200

So what would be the depth of field different between this and my AC-160? Is there any way to know this without using the camera?

Re: Panasonic 4K DVX200

The New Camera is based on MIcro 4/3rd sensor so it is much bigger than the AG 160 1/3 inch sensor so the DVX200 should have much less depth of field

I think it is 8bit 420 internal and 10bit 422 over HDMI for an external recorder. Did anyone also notice the venting on the right side. Wonder if it has a fan like my FDR-AX1 ?

Re: Panasonic 4K DVX200

That's what I've been afraid of since day one. Heck, I'd settle for 8 bit and 4:2:2.

Still, if it does end up being only 8 bit and 4:2:0 than I'm expecting the price to be around $4,000 and up to $4,500 max.

Re: Panasonic 4K DVX200

The press release listed it at F2.8-F4.5, which on a large sensor is slightly better than your typical F3.5-F5.6 lenses. It is very likely de-clicked already since the iris is designed for video.

Re: Panasonic 4K DVX200

I want to go on record and say that I dislike shooting with lenses that have ramping iris ranges of this magnitude. Defeats the purpose of the zoom in certain situations. If you expose for the long end of the lens and then use the wide you have to readjust the iris. If you are using the wide part of the lens and then zoom in you often end up with underexposed footage.

Re: Panasonic 4K DVX200

I guess the ramping comes down to how large a lens you want on the camera. There will be a few trade offs going on regarding the size of a fixed lens hand held camera like this, especially with larger sensors.

Most handheld cameras of this type have ramping lenses. My Sony NX5U ramps from F1.6 to F3.4 over the 20x zoom range. Not a problem as if one set the iris to F3.4 nothing will change over the zoom range. In lower light then one must take account of this. If you want a 13x 4/3 lens with constant f number then you may need to add a lot more money just for the lens !!

Buba,
The DVX 100A is f/1.6 to 2.8 or 3.4 at the 10x end of the zoom.

Plus of course, you'd probably double the cost of the camera, leaving people something worse to complain about. :)
