Panasonic’s AG-HPX370 series P2 HD camera recorder moves you up to a whole new level of production quality. A new, state-of-the-art 2.2 megapixel 3-chip U.L.T. (Ultra Luminance Technology) imager produces stunning HD content in a wide range of shooting conditions, with the F10* sensitivity and image quality of larger imagers. With a superior 10-bit, 4:2:2, full 1920 x 1080 resolution AVC-Intra codec, the HPX370 series can record more image detail more accurately. Ready for global production, the HPX370 series offers international HD and SD standards, including 1080i and 720p as well as industry-standard DVCPRO HD. Data is recorded onto reliable P2 memory cards. With its superb image rendering, long recording time, easy operation and flexible adaptability to IT, the AG-HPX370 series is a powerful answer to today's advanced video production demands. It also offers low operating costs and high environmental performance.
*F10 sensitivity in 1080/59.94i and F11 sensitivity in 1080/50i at 2,000 lx.
The AG-HPX370 series features a newly developed camera section with a 2.2-megapixel image sensor and 20 bit digital signal processor. Image quality is outstanding.
Newly Developed U.L.T.*1 Image Sensor with F10*2 Sensitivity and Superb Image Quality
High levels of sensitivity and image quality have been achieved with a new high-sensitivity photodiode and low-noise pixel transistor, both based on low-noise analog process technology that was accumulated in Panasonic CCD camera development. Plus, the same levels of sensitivity and image quality that are found in Interlace mode are now possible in Progressive mode thanks to P.A.P. (Progressive Advanced Processing), a 3D adaptive processing technology.

Fujinon High-Performance 17x Zoom Lens
The AG-HPX370 series comes equipped with a Fujinon 1/3-inch 17x zoom lens. Optimized for use with the AG-HPX370 series, this high-performance HD lens incorporates advanced broadcast lens technologies to achieve a compact size, light weight, F1.6 at 4.5 mm f-value at the wide end, and excellent zoom response. The zoom is comfortable to grip and use. Also, quick zoom and auto cruising zoom functions can be allocated to the VTR and RET switches.
Chromatic Aberration Compensation (CAC)
This exclusive technology sets up a conversation between lens and camera which allows for a highly sophisticated algorithm to be deployed that will automatically compensate the registration error that is caused mainly by lens chromatic aberration, and minimize the circumjacent blur.
Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS)
In scenes with mixed contrast, such as when panning from indoors to outdoors, the DRS function automatically suppresses blocked shadows and blown highlights. A gamma curve and knee slope are estimated to match the contrast of each pixel, and applied in real time. When dark, bright, and intermediate shades are all contained in the same scene, this produces excellent gradation for each shade and minimizes blocked shadows and blown highlights. The images that result are enhanced by a visually wide dynamic range.
- Adjustable H detail level, V detail level, detail coring and skin tone detail
- Adjustable chroma level, chroma phase, color temp and master pedestal
- Knee point settings: Auto, Low, Mid and High
- User files can be saved to an SD card and shared with other cameras. User files are separate from Scene Files.
