Panasonic AG-HPX600 (AGHPX600) Lightweight 2/3 Shoulder Mount P2HD Camera Recorder

The AG-HPX600 P2 HD shoulder mount camcorder offers 10-bit, 4:2:2 AVC-Intra recording, low power consumption of only 18 watts and future-proof options, including AVC-ULTRA recording*. The world’s first 2/3” shoulder camcorder under 7 lbs (approximately 6.2 lb2), 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, variable frame rates; and future options including AVC-ULTRA and microP2 card upgradability in 2013***. AVC-ULTRA will offer master-quality and/or low-bit-rate 10-bit, 4:2:2 recording in Full HD to meet variety of user needs from mastering to transmission.

The HPX600 also features wireless and wired connection ability with Wi-Fi, USB and Gigabit Ethernet. In addition, an option will support LiveU for video uplink with real time indication of LiveU’s transmission status and video transmission quality to the camera operator. The HPX600 will allow the user to upgrade his camera as new functionality becomes available**.

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 will offer two P2 Card Slots and an SD Card Slot.


* AG-HPX600 will not support all AVC-ULTRA formats.
** Excluding battery and accessories.
*** Both the AVC-Ultra and microP2 options are planned for 2013 and will be chargeable upgrades.

    2/3-type Interchangeable Lenses
    The 2/3-type bayonet mount interchangeable lens system lets you choose from a variety of 2/3-type zoom lenses for broadcasting and other professional uses from third-party manufacturers. Select the lens type and performance level that meet your needs.

    New, High-Sensitivity F12 MOS Sensor
    A newly developed 2/3-type MOS sensor offers levels of F12 sensitivity (at 59.94 Hz) and low noise with an S/N of 59 dB (standard) that surpass many 2/3-type 3CCD cameras. High-speed scanning minimizes skewing distortion.

    Standard-Equipped, High-Quality AVC-Intra Codecs
    This advanced system maintains intra-frame compression based on the new MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 moving picture compression technology. It records in AVC-Intra100 mode (1920 x 1080, 10 bit, 4:2:2) for images with full-pixel HD and full sampling, and AVC-Intra50 mode (1440 x 1080, 10 bit, 4:2:0) for high-quality images at a low bit rate and for low-cost operation. The AG-HPX600 will also support the new codec, AVC-ULTRA in the future as a paid upgrade.

    The Lightest 2/3-type Shoulder-type Model
    The AG-HPX600 is the lightest in its class at approximately 2.8 kg (6.2 lb) for the main unit. This compact body provides superb mobility. It is also designed with excellent forward visibility.

    Low Power Consumption
    Power consumption for the main unit is only 18 W. This is a reduction of about 50% from our previous model, the AJ-HPX2100 (36 W for the main unit only, with LCD off), which was released in 2007. The AG-HPX600 consumes only 22 W even with the optional AG-YDX600G Video Encoder Board and optional AG-YA600G HD/SD SDI Input Board mounted.

    SmartUI — A New User Interface
    This newly designed user interface consists of an LCD and a variety of switches. A large number of functions, including Scene File settings, Audio Level settings, Audio IN/OUT selection, Time Code settings, and MON/HDMI Output Video settings, are easy to recognize and can be set with only a few steps each.

      Photolease is an independent finance company who have specialised in leasing equipment to the imaging industry for over twenty five years.


      1. Banking facilities left available for special projects and unforeseen expenses.
      2. Small initial outlay usually amounting to just one months rental.
      3. Payment can be spread over a period of one to four years dependent upon value and type of equipment.
      4. A single payment at the end of the lease guarantees retention of the asset for the remainder of its working life.
      5. If you want to sell the equipment after the lease has ended you will receive the sale proceeds.
      6. Rentals are fully tax deductible.
      7. Cash flow is protected and the asset earns revenue in payment of the lease.
      8. No need to be VAT registered.



      What happens at the end of the lease?

      We will extend the agreement indefinitely on payment of a single further monthly rental. After that you can keep the equipment and will never have to pay any more.

      Isn't leasing just for companies who can't afford the cash?
      No. Companies who lease do so because they know that there are better uses for their spare funds.

      Is leasing only relevant for large acquisitions?
      No. Transactions of all sizes are completed using lease agreements. You can lease equipment worth as little as £1000.

      Do I have to insure the equipment?
      Yes. It is your responsibility to keep the equipment insured for all risks for the term of the agreement.

      What happens if the equipment becomes faulty?
      You have the protection of the manufacturers and/or suppliers warranty. Responsibility for repairs out of warranty are yours.

      What about VAT?
      Rentals attract VAT. This can be reclaimed if you are VAT registered. Please check your VAT status, or consult your accountant

      What can be included in the agreement?
      Leasing enables the whole solution to be financed. This can include hardware, software, installation, training and warranties

      Can the equipment be upgraded?
      Yes. The equipment can be upgraded during the course of the agreement. Speak to us for further details.

      Is it possible to settle the agreement early?
      Yes. However we always recommend you speak to your accountant to make sure it does not create an adverse tax position.

      Is there a penalty for settling early?
      No. If you clear the account before it has run it’s full term then there is a reduction in the full amount payable.

      Can I pay a deposit to lower my monthly outlay?
      Yes. However you would need to contact us to find the correct figures based on your deposit amount.
