Model Description:
2/3' 3CCD P2 HD VariCam camcorder 720p/1080i 10-bit 4:2:2 AVC-Intra, HD-SDI out

Model Details

The P2 HD VariCam camcorders, AJ-HPX3700G and AJ-HPX2700G, represent a synergistic pairing of Panasonic’s popular solid-state recording technology and unique VariCam features and capabilities. These new 2/3” Native HD resolution models greatly advance digital filmmaking with features including master-quality, full-resolution 10-bit 4:2:2 AVC-Intra 100 recording; variable frame rates in one-frame increments; HD-SDI output of 23.98PsF/24PsF; and a multi-gamma function including Film-Rec for the VariCam look closely matching the colour and response of film stocks.
