Overview

The AG-HPX600 P2 HD shoulder mount camcorder offers 10-bit, 4:2:2 AVC-Intra recording, and low power consumption of only 18 watts. The world’s first 2/3” shoulder camcorder under 7 lbs , the HPX600 is equipped with a newly-developed 2/3 type MOS sensor and records in AVC-Intra100/50, DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO, and DV.

The HPX600 provides innovative features and efficient workflows, with options such as wireless metadata input, proxy recording, and variable frame rates. The HPX600 also features wireless and wired connection ability with Wi-Fi, USB and Gigabit Ethernet.

The interchangeable lens camcorder is equipped with Chromatic Aberration Compensation (CAC) to maximize lens performance, Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) function to help compensate for wide variations in lighting, and a highly accurate Flash Band detection and compensation algorithm that minimizes this effect. A smart user interface permits accessibility to the camera’s extensive functions from an LCD display on the camera’s side. The HPX600 offers two P2 Card Slots and an SD Card Slot.
