The PX270 can capture HD from a low bit rate of 12 Mbps to master-quality 200 Mbps. For high-quality recording, the camera records in 100 Mbps AVC-Intra 100, as well as 200 Mbps AVC-ULTRA Class200 (optional). For applications where file size is critical for long recording, the camcorder records in low-bit-rate AVC-LongG for extended recording and AVC-LongG25, which enables extended 1920 x 1080, 10-bit, 4:2:2 broadcast-quality recording (four times longer than AVC-Intra 100) on the same memory space.
It also records in AVC-Proxy in parallel with
higher-bandwidth production formats,
enabling fast offline editing at bit rates
from 6 Mbps down to 800Dkbps. And the
PX270 records in DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO50,
DVCPRO and DV.
3G/4G/LTE Wireless Mobility
The PX270 features a wireless LAN function via an optional dongle; streaming and FTP via a 3G/4G/LTE network*; and easy uplink, low-bit-rate proxy and full-quality broadcast content to make production workflow more efficient and accelerate broadcasting workflows from shooting, to on-air.
New, High-sensitivity, Low-noise 3MOS Image Sensors
The PX270's three 2.2M pixel 1/3" 3MOS sensors offer full-pixel HD (1920 x 1080) resolution to deliver a horizontal resolution of 1,000 TV lines. The camcorder also achieves high F11 (59.94 Hz)/F12 (50 Hz) sensitivity to produce rich gradation and vibrant colors.
Recording Formats, Plus Variable Frame Rates for Slow and Fast Motion Effects
In 1080, recording in 1080/59.94p, 1080/59.94i, 1080/29.97p, 1080/29.97pN, 1080/23.98p, 1080/23.98pN, and 1080/23.98Psf. In 720p, recording in 720/59.94p, 720/29.97pN, and 720/23.98pN. In SD, records in 480/59.94i and 480/29.97p. Recording in variable frame rates in 1080/59.94p in 25 steps from 1fps to 60fps, including 24fps, 25fps and 30 fps as standard.
22X Zoom Lens with Three Main Focus Rings
A newly designed, compact, 22X zoom lens with optical stabilizer offers a wide 28mm to telephoto 616mm (35mm equivalent) zoom range. The camera is also equipped with three manual operation lens rings – zoom, focus and iris – to provide comfortable manual control similar to interchangeable lenses, without the need for actual lens changes.
Industry's First OLED Viewfinder in a Handheld Camcorder
For rich blacks and natural motion handling, the PX270 is the first handheld with a high-resolution OLED viewfinder for true-to-life colors, as well as the industry's first 1.56-megapixel, high-resolution LCD monitor to see exactly what has just been shot.
Efficient Design, Incredible Image Adjustment Capabilities
The PX270 offers a design like no other handheld, with switches and volume controls located in the same positions you'd find on a shoulder-mount camera. The external terminals, which are used during recording, are located on the side panel.
And it's equipped with the menus and creative controls you'd only find before on full-featured 2/3" production cameras. The PX270 has hue-adjustable, 12-axis color compensation for each color gamut and independent, three-axis skin-tone color compensation.
microP2 Card, P2 Card and SD Card Slots
Two microP2 card slots enable the ultimate cost-effective operation. The microP2 card, with the same reliability as the P2 card, can be used without an adapter. It's also equipped with one P2 card slot and one SD/SDHC/SDXC card slot.
