Product Description

Panasonic’s AG-HPX250 P2 Camcorder is the first handheld professional camcorder to record extremely high-quality images using the AVC-Intra 100 Mb/s (10-bit 4:2:2) codec. The camera also features an integrated 22x zoom lens, and a 2.2 MP 1/3″-type 3MOS imager.
For video that will undergo heavy post-production processing, such as green screen shooting, the HPX250’s AVC-Intra 100 codec is a perfect choice. The versatile HPX250 records not only AVC-Intra, but also several DVCPRO (including DVCPRO HD) and DV modes. A variety of frame rates are possible in DVCPRO modes, for native slow and fast-motion effects. For rock-solid reliability, two professional P2 cards slots record simultaneously (i.e. to create an instant back-up) or sequentially, with hot-swap support.
