Panasonic release DVX-200 4k handheld camera

Panasonic have announced their latest 4k camera at NAB in Las Vegas.

The AG-DVX200 is a 4/3", fixed lens, 4K camcorder with Leica Dicomar 13 x zoom lens, 4k/60pl large format MOS sensor,  12 stops latitude and 4k/60p recording in SD card. Delivering a shallow depth of field and a wide field of view, the DVX200 is the ideal companion camera to the company’s ground-breaking VariCam 35 4K camera/recorder. With an integrated lens design, the DVX200 will excel in independent film and documentary production, as well as event videography.

      Hi Ed. We'll have more information up asap. We'll also post any test videos we come across too. Unfortunately, it seems Panasonic haven't been the best at releasing this and info is quite hard to find! Hopefully there will be more tomorrow!
