<b> The Broadcast Quality Handheld </b> Backed by the image quality, functions and operating ease of a shoulder-type camera, this handheld camera recorder brings a new level of quality to ENG. The AJ-PX230 is a unique new model camera recorder with extremely high cost-performance. It features a powerful CAM-type 22x zoom lens with three manual rings, a 600% dynamic range with 1/3-type 3MOS (RGB) image sensors and AVC-ULTRA multi-codec recording, including the high-quality AVC-Intra200 codec, all in an easy-to-operate, professional camera design. As the ultimate handheld camera recorder, the AJ-PX230 offers high-quality acquisition for a host of uses, from ENG to video production. <b> CAM-type 22x Zoom Lens with Three Manual Rings and Ultra Low-Speed Seesaw Zoom Levers </b> The AJ-PX230 features a high-performance, compact zoom lens. Zooming from 28 mm to 616 mm (35 mm equivalent), this 22x zoom lens covers a wide field of view, from wide-angle to telephoto, without the need for a conversion lens. Combining 18 lens elements in 12 groups, this advanced lens unit further adds a UHR (Ultra High Refractive) glass element, a low dispersion element and aspherical lenses. This advanced optical technology provides superbly high resolution. In addition, it is combined with Panasonic's unique digital signal processing technology, called Chromatic Aberration Compensation (CAC), to minimize color bleeding in the surrounding image areas and to achieve rich expression with finely rendered nuances and excellent shading. The AJ-PX230 has three manual rings: a mechanical (cam-type) zoom ring, a focus ring and an iris ring. The operating feel and rib pattern of these rings are carefully designed to make manual operation feel like using an interchangeable lens. The focus ring is knurled for reliable fingertip control of delicate focusing. The seesaw zoom levers (grip/handle) support extra-slow zooming down to 180 seconds.

Magnification control can be assigned to a user button for quick zooming to 2x, 5x or 10x. It provides a telephoto capability of up to 220x in combination with the optical zoom. • Built-in ND filter (OFF, 1/4, 1/16, 1/64). <b> Advanced Flash Band Compensation (FBC) </b>This function detects and precisely compensates the flash bands (bands of light and dark) that often occur in still cameras equipped with an MOS sensor. <b> 600% Dynamic Range with 1/3-Type 3MOS Image Sensors </b> 2.2-megapixel 1/3-type 3MOS (RGB) image sensors offer full-pixel HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, F11 (59.94 Hz) or F12 (50 Hz) sensitivity and low noise. They also achieve rich gradation and vibrant color reproduction. The 1/3-type image sensors achieve the same maximum 600% level (compared to the 300% level of their previous model) of dynamic...
