The following video presents AG-DVX200 – Key Features:
The AG-DVX200 4K camcorder is inundated with a variety of high quality and intelligent features to ensure versatility and stunning image reproduction. Not only does this fixed lens 4K camcorder use shallow depth of field, it also employs a log curve which uses 12 dynamic stops to ensure accurate editing. Grading images using V-Log (Originally used for the VariCam 35, also found in the Lumix GH4) ensures that colour contrasts are expertly highlighted and that the graded images are vivid and sharp. The AG-DVX200 also combats a common issue for 4K camcorders – file size. Usually, images produced by a 4K camcorder will be extremely large. However, by using 4:2:0 8bit recording, the DVX200 produces smaller file sizes which are also easy to edit in post-production.

The AG-DVX200 is a 4/3-type large-format 4K/60p*2 camera recorder with integrated zoom lens that was released in September 2015.
