And exclusive to the HPX255 is a remote terminal that makes it compatible with Panasonic’s AG-EC4 Paint Box remote control. This optional remote control unit has the ability to control virtually all menu, set-up and gamma functions that can be accessed directly through the camcorder’s on-board menu, including shutter, iris, gain, filter positions and detail. The optional EC4 comes with a 10 meter BNC cable that will output the menu onto a monitor.

The 22X lens also features an Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.) function that ensures stable images during shooting. Additional advanced focusing functions, including Focus in Red and Expand.

The AG-HPX255 offers variable frame rate (VFR) capability in 1080p from 1fps to 30fps (17 steps) as well as 720p from fps to 60fps (25 steps) at 60Hz for undercranking/overcranking to create fast or slow-motion effects.
