About the Panasonic AJ-PX5000 Camcorder

PLEASE NOTE: The AJ-PX5000 camcorder is supplied as BODY ONLY and does not include lens, viewfinder, microphone or battery.

With the Panasonic AJ-PX5000 broadcast camcorder, you get native AVC-ULTRA recording, plus a new 3MOS sensor that has been designed to counter the effects of rolling shutter. Other features of this model include high sensitivity (F13 for 50i), a strong 60dB signal-to-noise ratio, wireless and wired control and streaming of proxy content.  Storage is via two P2 slots and two microP2 slots

Large image sensor - 2/3-type 2.2 Megapixels, 3-MOS. Delivers a horizontal TV resolution of 1000 lines and F13 sensitivity at 50i with a S/N ratio of 60dB.

Light at 3.4kg and the 2/3-type shoulder mount configuration permits the use of a variety of interchangeable lenses.

720p and 1080i recording plus 1080/50p recording, a first for P2 HD cameras. Recording codecs include AVC-Long and AVC-Intra 100/50 as standard plus DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO and DV as options, with switchable 50Hz and 59.4Hz modes for different international standards.

Aimed at news, documentary, sports and high-level corporate users and will also suit the rental market.

Panasonic’s AVC-ULTRA offers master-quality and/or low-bit-rate 10-bit, 4:2:2 recording in Full HD to meet a variety of user needs from mastering to transmission. AVC-LongG, designed for applications where file size is critical, offers 10-bit, 4:2:2 sampled recording in a much smaller file size, saving storage cost and transfer times over MPEG-2 while maintaining equal or better video quality. 1080p recording at 50 frames per second is added to existing AVC-Intra compression modes. For ultra high-end mastering and mezzanine workflows, Class 200 will produce visually lossless compression, ideal for migrating current HD tape masters to a file-based format without degradation, and with a far smaller file size than many platform-specific mezzanine formats.

The AJ-PX5000G is “future-proofed” with a wide range of features including wireless metadata input*1 and high-resolution proxy recording. The AJ-PX5000G features wireless and wired connectability with Wi-Fi, USB and Gigabit Ethernet, including wireless control of key camera functions from a smart phone*1. In addition, the camera recorder will support LiveU’s LU40i video-over-cellular device.

Weighing around 3.4kg the AJ-PX5000G is the first P2 HD camcorder with built-in slots for Panasonic’s new microP2 cards, which have an SD card form factor. The AJ-PX5000G has two microP2 slots and two standard P2 card slots*2, as well as an SD card slot for proxy/metadata recording.

The 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. The PX5000G delivers seven-mode gamma selection and extensive digital image settings.

Its key features include a smart user interface that permits accessibility to the camera’s extensive functions from an LCD display on the side of the camera, a simplified waveform and vectorscope; a 10-pin remote terminal enabling remote camera operation; and an optional camera studio system.

Standard features include Scan Reverse for use with a cinema lens adaptor; Digital Zoom function for 2x and 4x close-ups; Variable Shutter Speed from 1/12 to 1/2000 sec plus Synchro Scan; and a four-position (CLEAR, 1/4 ND, 1/16 ND, 1/64 ND) optical neutral density filter wheel. Professional interfaces include MON out (can be set to output HD-SDI), HDMI out, HD/SD-SDI in/out, 3G-SDI out, genlock in for multi-camera operation, timecode in/out, USB 3.0 (HOST) and a two-channel UniSlot compatible wireless receiver. The PX5000G has two XLR audio inputs, and records up to four channels of 48kHz, 24/16-bit audio.

  • Newly developed 3MOS sensor reduces the effects of rolling shutter.
  • High Sensitivity (F13 at 50i), low noise (60dB), 1000 TV line resolution.
  • AVC-ULTRA codec camera-recorder including AVC-LongG50/25/12*1/6*1.
  • Wireless and wired control and streaming of proxy content.
  • Two P2 slots and two microP2 slots*2


First Standard-Equipped AVC-ULTRA Codec
From mastering to streaming, the image quality and bit rate can be selected to match the application. Panasonic’s professional A/V codec family, AVC-ULTRA, is provided as standard equipment for the first time ever, to meet the particular needs of broadcasting and image production

AVC Intra
An intra-frame compression method that is highly suited to image production. In addition to the conventional AVC-Intra100/50, an optional AVC-Intra200 codec will be available.*1 With superb images that approach uncompressed quality and 24 bit audio, it offers a level of quality that meets the needs of mastering and archiving.

AVC LongG
An inter-frame compression method that achieves high-quality HD recording at a low bit rate. Ideal for providing on-air content direct from the shooting location and for workflows using content transferred over the internet. Four bit rates are available: AVC-LongG50/25/12*1/6*1*2 Mbps. AVC-LongG50/25 provide 10 bit/4:2:2 quality at a bit rate of approximately 25 Mbps.

AVC Proxy
Low-bit-rate, high-resolution, high-sound-quality proxy video (Quick Time/H.264) is also recorded, with the actual data. Also includes meta data for efficient offline editing. (Proxy data cannot be recorded when using the Loop Rec or Interval Rec function. Proxy data is low-resolution video and audio data with time code, metadata, and other management data in a file format. The use of DCF Technologies is under license from Multi-Format, Inc)

Standard-Equipped microP2 Card Slots
The AJ-PX5000G is the first camera recorder to come with two slots for the microP2 card, the new broadcast-use memory card downsized to match the size of a conventional SD memory card.
microP2 card: While inheriting the high reliability of the P2 card and maintaining the large capacity of 64 GB, the microP2 card was greatly downsized to match the size of an SD memory card, thus resulting in a considerable reduction in cost.
Content Protection System (CPS): A new security function featured on the microP2 card. The content recorded on the card is locked with a password to protect against unauthorized access. This prevents data from being stolen and enables secure media control
P2 Card Slots: Two conventional P2 card slots can be used.
Highly Mobile and Reliable: The microP2 and P2 cards are highly resistant to temperature changes, dust, impacts, and vibration, and there are no worries about condensation, head clogging, or dropout as there are with VTR systems. Data is recorded onto empty card spaces, so there is no need to search for the beginning and ending of recorded portions. There is also no danger of mistakenly recording over existing data.

High Sensitivity and Low Noise with the New 2/3 type 3MOS Image Sensors
The newly developed 2.2 megapixel 2/3 type 3MOS (RGB) image sensors offer full-pixel HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, F12 (59.94 Hz) or F13 (50 Hz) sensitivity and low noise with an S/N of 62 dB (with DNR ON). It also achieves rich gradation and vibrant colour reproduction.

A Newly Developed LSI for High Image Quality
This LSI incorporates a high-performance digital signal processor (DSP). It also integrates intricate image quality adjustment functions, including 12 axis + skin color 3-axis independent correction capable of hue adjustment for each color space, plus Skin Tone Detail and other settings. In addition, the DSP achieves lower power consumption than previous models. Also includes Advanced Flash Band Compensation (FBC) for high-precision flash band detection and compensation.
Image-Enhancing Functions and Versatile Image Settings
DRS (Dynamic Range Stretch): Suppresses blocked shadows and blown highlights to achieve a visually wide dynamic range.
Gamma: Select from 7 mode (HD/SD/FILMLIKE 1/FILMLIKE 2/FILMLIKE 3/FILM-REC/VIDEO-REC) gamma curves.
Digital Image Settings: H detail, V detail, detail coring, skin tone detail, chroma level, color temperature, master pedestal, knee, matrix, colour correction.

Advanced Functions for Broadcast Applications
Scan Reverse Function: This function cancels the image inversion that occurs when Angenieux or Canon HD lens adapters are used.
High-Sensitivity DS Gain: High sensitivity is achieved without increasing noise.*1 Combined with gain, this enables a maximum +76 dB,*2 for ultrahigh sensitive recording at minimum subject illumination of 0.004 lx.
Digital Zoom: 2x/3x/4x digital zoom boost.
Electronic Shutter with Half-Speed: The AJ-PX5000G features six fixed shutter speeds of up to 1/2000 sec., plus “half-speed” (180 degree) and synchro-scan capability.
Two Optical Filters: ND and CC, have four positions each. The 3200K, 4300K, 5600K and 6300K positions of the CC filter help to express deeper colors.
*1: Due to the use of image accumulation, the number of recorded frames per second decreases. This results in a frame-by-frame playback effect.
*2: With super gain set at +42 dB and digital super gain (cumulative mode) at +34 dB

Setup Data Files
Setup Files: Eight camera setup data files (including four scene files) can be saved on an SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card. Loading this file from memory card makes colour setting easier for multiple cameras.
Lens Files: Stores settings for interchangeable lenses. Eight files can be stored in the camera unit, and 64 (8 x 8) files can be saved on an SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card.

Shooting Assist Functions
Focus Assist: Expands the center section of the viewfinder screen for easier focusing.
Shockless White Balance: A smooth transition occurs when switching White Balance modes. This is effective, for example, when moving from outdoors to indoors.
User Buttons: Functions can be freely allocated to the five User buttons.
WFM: Simplified waveform and vectorscope display.

Optional Colour and Black-and-White Viewfinders
The optional AJ-CVF100G HD Color Viewfinder employs a 25.4 mm (1 inch) 1,500,000 dot-equivalent (960 x 540 x 3 [RGB]) transmission-type LCOS (Liquid Crystal On Silicon) to achieve high resolution, high brightness and high response. It helps to reduce the possibility of white balance adjustment errors and other errors in recording. The optional AJ-HVF21KG 50.8 mm (2 inches) Black-and-White HD Viewfinder or AG-CVF15G/CVF10G HD Color Viewfinders can also be used.
