The Panasonic AG-CX350 4K handheld camcorder is the industry's lightest 4K 10-bit fixed-lens camcorder that contains powerful features, including 4K 10-bit 60p capture, HDR recording, and is equipped with the RTMP/RTSP/RTP protocol for live streaming and NDI | HX-ready IP connection.
Firmware Upgrade Ver. 2.0 adds several professional features, including HEVC 100-Mbps and AVC-ULTRA formats, expanded audio capability, enhanced streaming, and more.
With additional AVC-ULTRA formats, CX350 shooters can capture AVC LongG 12/25/50, along with AVC-Intra 422, which are all used today in other Panasonic P2 cameras such as the AJ-PX270 for ENG style shooting. The HEVC 100-Mbps codec brings 4K/60p 10-bit recording to the CX350 in a smaller file size, which is ideal for documentaries or reality content that need to capture large amounts of content.
Multi-cast streaming will expand your workflow possibilities by allowing multiple users (on PC or smart devices) to monitor your CX350 stream. This feature is ideal for College or Enterprise campuses where multiple users need to see a live stream from one camera.
The CX350 offers multiple forms of IP connectivity. It is the first handheld camcorder with in-camera NDI | HX compatibility (requires license purchase), allowing for high-quality IP video connectivity with live production switchers, including the Panasonic AV-HLC100 Stream Studio. The CX350 contains the RTMP (Real Time Messaging Protocol) function, which enables video streaming to key social platforms like Facebook Live and YouTube Live. Internal HD recording (MOV) while streaming content is also available. The CX ROP app for iOS/Android tablets enables IP remote control of the CX350 with Gigabit Ethernet LAN connector (RJ45), or wireless module (AJ-WM50). With the app, you can control functions such as camera settings, picture quality adjustment, REC start/stop, menu settings and more.
The CX350's integrated lens contains a wide angle of 24.5mm at the wide-angle setting with minimal-distortion. The 20x optical zoom lens covers the range from 24.5mm to 490mm (35mm film equivalent at 4K/HD). It also has the 35x(HD) / 24x(4K) Intelligent Zoom function. In both 4K and HD shooting modes, the CX350 uses 5-axis hand-shake correction that combines the effects of both optical and electronic image stabilization, providing a steadier image in unstable shooting conditions.
In addition to capturing conventional gamma modes (HD, SD, FILMLIKE 1/2/3 FILM-REC, VIDEO-REC), the CX350 now supports HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) to capture a wider dynamic range. The HLG standard was developed jointly by the BBC (British Broadcasting Company) and NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) and is currently supported by both TV stations and streaming services. When shooting HLG, the CX350 can be set to HDR or SDR Color Setting on each output - LCD/EVF, SDI and HDMI.
