Panasonic has announced that a firmware upgrade for its AG-DVX200PJ 4K large-sensor, 4/3” handheld camcorder The Ver. 1.51 can be downloaded at at http://eww.pass.panasonic.co.jp/pro-av/support/content/download/EN/ep2main/soft/upgdvx200_e.htm
The new firmware changes the default color palette of the camera to a look designed to be more natural without the need for an adjustment. The DVX200PJ’s advanced, powerful color adjustment tools and scene file settings can still be used to customize the image to the operator’s needs. End-users who have created custom looks using the previous default color settings can still use these settings by reverting to the original base color settings designated as Ver. 1.4 in the camcorder menu. The original color setting can be found by navigating to Menu > Other Functions > Color Tone
The DVX200PJ is the first in a new generation of large sensor, multi-format professional camcorders capable of capturing 4K/UHD, HD and SD, including cinematic DCI 4K 4096×2160. The camcorder is optimized for 4K/HD production, with stunning bokeh effects and a V-Log L curve (measured at 12 stops) emulating the natural grey-scale rendition of the VariCam 35.
