So we've already taken a look at the flagship camcorders from Panasonic's competition from Canon (XF705) and Sony (Z280), which are both great cameras, and the CX-350 from Panasonic is no different. We will be going more in-depth with the camera in the near future, as well as comparing it to the XF705 and Z280, so keep an eye out for those videos.
Panasonic AG-CX350 product specifications
The CX-350 is a professional fixed-lens camcorder, capable of recording 4K, 10Bit 4:2:2 internally, up to 60p. There are a range of codecs in which the camera can record in, including H.265/HEVC, which we're beginning to see more and more in cameras. If you want to get 10Bit, 50/60p out of the camera, you'll have to use HEVC as the LongGOP options at 50/60p in 4K are 8Bit. If you don't wish to use HEVC then there are also 10Bit codecs for 25p, including Panasonics 400Mbps ALL-I codec, which is also used in the EVA-1. The camera records onto affordable SD cards, and because of the lower data rate of H.265, you can get away with slower cards. However, if you want to use the 400Mbps ALL-I codec then you will need to get yourself V-90 cards, which are more expensive.
Physically, there is everything that you would expect from a camcorder like this, a good EVF and viewfinder, three rings (all of which are fly by wire) and a whole host of controls along the side of the camera. The lens on the front is also quite impressive, giving you a 35mm equivalent of a 24.5-490mm.
The CX-350 is also a good option for streaming, with NDI and HX options.
