When initially introduced, the AG-DVX pre-A model was the first small video camcorder to offer film-like frame per second recording. High-end shoulder mount cameras offer film-speed recording, but the operation of one of these cameras requires a large production crew and oodles of money. The AG-DVXB is the improved version of the "A" camera with over 20 new features like a higher resolution viewfinder, Scene Files and Time Code transfer through the FireWire cable, greater power efficiency with newly developed battery pack, more delicate zoom control and more. An all-black paint job on the new DVXB camera actually hides finger marks and smears and reduces reflection compared with the older silver bodied "A" model. This latest version also comes standard with Magic Bullet edit software and an instructional DVD production book.

When initially introduced, the AG-DVX pre-A model was the first small video camcorder to offer film-like frame per second recording. High-end shoulder mount cameras offer film-speed recording, but the operation of one of these cameras requires a large production crew and oodles of money.
The AG-DVXB is the improved version of the "A" camera with over 20 new features like a higher resolution viewfinder, Scene Files and Time Code transfer through the FireWire cable, greater power efficiency with newly developed battery pack, more delicate zoom control and more. An all-black paint job on the new DVXB camera actually hides finger marks and smears and reduces reflection compared with the older silver bodied "A" model.
This latest version also comes standard with Magic Bullet edit software and an instructional DVD production book. Use of low-dispersion glass reduces color aberration and increases resolution, while a multi-coating process minimizes flare and ghosting. The results are sharp, crisp, beautifully rendered images with delicate nuances and exceptional shading.
The lens system features 15 lens elements in 11 groups, including three aspherical lenses. Optical processing with an automatic correction function helps assure consistently clear, sharp images. Its high Signal to Noise ratio means less noise in darker parts of the image and low smear that allows shooting in sunlight or under bright spotlights. High-Sensitivity Slow Shutter Cumulative Function The slow shutter function uses image accumulation to enable shutter speeds with frame rates reduced by half or more.
You get the ultra-high sensitivity needed for nighttime shooting without illumination, as well as dramatic frame-by-frame or soft focus effects. RGB Gamma Processor Provides Rich, Film-Like Tones Panasonic has greatly expanded the expressive capability of the DV camera by creating unique gamma functions such as Cine-Like gamma curves, which produce images strikingly similar in tone to film images. For each of the RGB signals, the gamma curve settings are processed immediately upstream from the digital signal processing circuit.
This helps achieve outstanding image quality. With its high mobility and low costs, the AG-DVXB is the ideal tool for producing independent films, shorts, or streaming video. You may choose from three shooting modes: 24p 24 fps, progressive for images with the look and motion of film movies, 30p 30 fps, progressive , or standard 60i 60 fps, interlace.
The tape can then be played back or edited using an ordinary DV system. True 24p editing can be achieved by uploading pulldown-converted images via an IEEE DV interface to a compatible non-linear editing system.
It gives you ample range for close-ups, recording in small rooms, and self-recorded interviews. In addition, with a minimum object distance MOD of approximately 0. Fast, Smooth Cam-Driven Manual Zoom and Focus Assist The cam-driven mechanical manual zoom ring provides the same smooth, easy zooming as cameras with interchangeable lenses.
Its direct operation gives you fast, precise zooming control. When you turn the zoom ring, you will experience the familiar steady resistance as with familiar 35mm lenses. Slowest zoom has been reduced to a dramatic 30 seconds from 20 seconds. Enjoy quick, sharp focusing manually or automatically. In manual mode, the focus ring provides the similar operating feel and responsive control as conventional cameras with interchangeable lenses.
In Auto Focus mode, you get the quick, sharp focusing needed in news gathering or when shooting at a high or low angle. When set to infinity, the focal distance is immediately prepared for the next manual focus. When in Manual Focus mode, pressing the Push Auto button temporarily activates auto focus. Macro Focus can be achieved either manually or automatically when the zoom lens is in the wide angle position.
The assigned functions can then be accessed at the touch of a button. Set the Scene File dial for any particular shooting condition, and later you can retrieve the settings instantly. Six preset files are provided F1 to F6 ; you can change any of the six file names and their settings as desired. The AG-DVXB also introduces a new design in which a rib protects the scene file dial to prevent unintentional file changes. There are three white balance values to select from one preset and two A and B that you can set and save in memory.
The ATW mode supports fast, active shooting by adjusting the white balance in real-time as lighting conditions change. You can also customize the Auto button by removing functions and setting the gain to any value desired. With this new Auto function, the AG-DVXB gives you the best of both worlds- the speed and ease of automatic operation and the precision of manual control. The center of balance is located precisely at the handgrip. Because there is no need for a wide-angle conversion lens, the weight balance is ideal for comfortable shooting.
In addition, the low-center-of-gravity design and new skeleton lens hood greatly improve forward vision. This tough, rigid unit protects the high precision mechanism, giving the AG-DVXB outstanding reliability and durability. User Bits are also provided, letting you record your choice of date, time, frame rate or user data.
The new User File transfer function makes it easy to get uniform image quality from multiple camera-recorders. Additionally, the Time Code value can be transferred as well making a common starting point for recording. Use the optional conversion lens AG-LAG, sold separately to take full advantage of the higher image quality made possible by using all of the CCD pixels.
With the standard lens, you can record in letterbox mode or the newly added Squeeze mode. Activating the Aspect Ratio function on the LCD allows for a letterbox display for easier framing when shooting in Squeeze Mode or when using the Anamorphic lens. Support Functions for Greater Convenience End search: Automatically searches for the last recorded portion of the tape. Convenient when preparing to start the next recording.

However, the company most known for doing this, Reel Stream, is no longer operational. Technical specs[ edit ] Panasonic created a complete line of cameras that support recording in 24p , which is an analog of how film cameras record frames, for independent film production. These features give the recordings a film quality appearance. The original AG-DVX can shoot in a aspect ratio only, the "A" revision added a capability to shoot widescreen video, but it looked squeezed on the built-in monitor. The "B" revision introduced the ability to properly monitor aspect ratio.
