Showcasing the Panasonic AG-UX180 [sponsored]

The sizzle reel for the new Panasonic AG-UX180, the handheld professional camera with a 1” 4K sensor and built in 20x zoom Leica lens, showed what the camera is capable of, while a 'making of...' video highlighted its impressive versatility behind the lens.

The Panasonic AG-UX180 is a new handheld professional camera with a 1” 4K sensor and built in 20x zoom Leica lens. Late last year we showed you two videos, a cleverly made showcase of the new camera’s talents that illiustrated exactly how good pictures from a small handheld camera can be, and another one showing how it was made, which also included  some additional information about the camera.

Both are below and highlight what is the state-of-the-art in 2017 of a €3,450 camera.

Here’s the same video on Vimeo.

And for the 'Making of...'

Retail price is €3,450 (excl VAT).

The Panasonic Broadcast & ProAV AG-UX180 is the "UX-series premium model" with professional functions and specifications. This 60p/50 camcorder is equipped with a newly designed compact lens featuring a wide 24mm angle and 20x optical zoom as well as a 1.0-type (effective size) high-sensitivity MOS sensor. Its evolved Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.) and intelligent AF function are suitable for professional camera work. The UX180 supports 4K 24p, UHD 60p/50p, FHD 60p/50p multi-format recording and HD super slow-motion. Two SD memory card slots are provided to enable relay/simultaneous/backup recording for enhanced reliability, and also support UHD/FHD dual codec recording for a more efficient workflow.
