• Full-HD 2.2 Megapixel U.L.T 3MOS Sensors
• 22x HD Lens with mechanical zoom, focus and iris rings
• High Quality Full-HD 10-bit, 4:2:2 AVC-Intra Recording to P2 Cards
High-sensitivity U.L.T image sensor
The AG-HPX250 features the progressive-compatible U.L.T (Ultra Luminance Technology) image sensor (1/3-type 2.2 megapixel MOS sensor) that is used in broadcast P2HD camera recorders. This image sensor offers high sensitivity and low noise, to enable shooting in low-light conditions. In Professional AVCHD PH mode, they can record high-quality Full-HD images. In AVC-Intra mode, they can record high-quality Full-HD images.
22x zoom lens with wide coverage
This remarkable recorder is equipped with a newly designed, large diameter zoom lens, with a filter diameter of 72mm. The 22x* zoom lens covers a wide field of view, from wide-angle to telephoto, without a conversion lens. The lens is provided with three rings – a mechanical (cam-type) zoom ring, a focus ring and iris ring – for the same kind of manual operation that you get with an interchangeable lens.
*f = 28mm to 616mm, 35mm equivalent
Full P2HD Image quality with AVC-Intra codec recording
Offered for the first time in a handheld camera recorder, the AVC-Intra is a codec based on advanced MPEG-4 AVC/H.264moving picture compression technology. It uses an intra-frame compression system to achieve high compression, high image quality and high editing performance. You can select AVC-Intra 100 for full 10 bit 4:2:2 full-sample recordings with 1980 x 1080 pixels or AVC-Intra 50 for video quality similar to DVCPRO HD and twice the recording time. The AG-HPX250 also offers DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO 50 and DV recording.
High-end operation with multi-camera synchronising and VFR recording
GENLOCK input and TC/input/output allow synchronisation of multiple cameras, which is ideal for multi-camera live realy and recording systems, while HD SDI/HDMI output allows for broadcasting and professional system operation. VFR (Variable Frame Rate) enables film-camera style image effects with overcranking for slow-motion and undercranking for quick-motion effects. 1080 setting: up to 30p, 720 setting: up to 60p (both at 59.94 Hz).
*DV files are recorded onto SDHC memory card
P2HD camera with powerful zoom lens and high quality Full-HD 10-bit 4:2:2 recording capabilities
The AG-HPX250 Memory Card Camera Recorder incorporates new technology in the lens, camera section and recorder section. This compact unit offers a level of performance that approaches full-size, shoulder-type broadcasting camera recorders. It’s also the first handheld model to support AVC-Intra codecs. Combine with three 2.2 megapixel MOS image sensor, it enable high-quality recording of Full-HD, 10 bit, 4:2:2 full sample broadcast-level images.
