Live From CES 2020: Panasonic Adds to CX Series With Industry’s ‘Smallest and Lightest’ 4K 50p/60p Camcorder
Unit is expected to be available beginning in April
Among Panasonic’s announcements at CES in Las Vegas on Monday was a hidden gem for sports-video–content creators: an addition to the company’s CX Series, the AG-CX10. Panasonic says that it’s the smallest and lightest 4K 50p/60p camcorder in the industry today.
The unit, which is expected to begin shipping in April, includes Wi-Fi for remote control and integrates the LEICA Dicomar lens delivering optical 24X zoom that spans from 25mm wide-angle to 600mm telephoto.
According to an official release sent out immediately following Panasonic’s Monday morning CES press conference, the AG-CX10’s i.ZOOM “achieves 32x at 4K resolution and 48x at FHD. The 4-Drive Lens System drives the four lens groups independently to achieve the optical 24X zoom in a compact body size.”
Built-in Auto Focus has face detection and focusing for both 4K and Full HD shooting, And, with two manual rings; Optical Image Stabilization; selectable 1/4, 1/16, 1/64 ND filter; a built-in and adjustable LED video light; and 24-bit linear PCM audio recording, the AG-CX10 packs a lot of value into a small footprint.
Panasonic says the camera will begin selling at just above $2,500. It’s being launched and displayed alongside two consumer models (HC-X2000, HC-X1500) here at CES.
