The favorite for many DOP's, the Panasonic HPX3000 is the industry's first NATIVE-1080P (2K) one-piece camcorder that captures 'master quality' 10-bit video, providing substantially increased information for flexible and controlled grading. Record to solid-state P2 cards, via the new AVC-Intra codec to capture true-native 1920x1080, 4:2:2 colour sampled images. The HPX3000 also offers the Panasonic exclusive, cine-gamma setting 'Film Rec' that realises 11-stops of dynamic range. Projects destined for overseas sales that are shot via the HPX3000 comfortably exceed the international HD recording standards as the HPX3000 records native at 100mbps. Combined cinema features, 10-bit processing power and 100mb native recording make this camcorder the leading EPF choice for New Zealand television drama production, including two of the largest series produced by South Pacific Pictures, Nothing Trivial series 1-2 and Go Girls series 1-4.
