AG-DVX200: The Versatile 4K/HD Camcorder That Gets the Job DoneThe AG-DVX200PJ is the first in a new generation of large-sensor, multi-format professional camcorders capable of capturing 4K/UHD, HD and SD, including cinematic DCI 4K 4096x2160. Designed as a large-format camera system, the DVX200 provides that all-important aesthetic of shallow depth of field/selective focus, but with an integrated 13X zoom for easy control over image framing as well as the ability to track your subject even in fast action. This large-format 4/3-inch camcorder offers exceptional image quality in all modes, as well as unique workflow options — including a dual codec workflow renowned in the VariCam® 35 production camera. Whether for cinematic or television production, sports, news acquisition or event acquisition, the DVX200PJ is a workhorse, offering the perfect blend of image quality, convenience and versatility to get your job done.

Stunning 4K and HD Image QualityThe AG-DVX200PJ captures high-quality video in cinematic DCI 4K 4096x2160 at 24p, UHD 4K 3840x2160 (60p / 30p / 24p), FHD (including 120fps and 24p), as well as SD. The DVX200 has a place in cinema style and reality TV 24p production, allowing Variable Frame Rate (the frame rate can be varied from 2 to 120 fps) and higher speeds for special effects, and a native 60 fps record mode to satisfy the recent demand of 60p UHD television production. When used in HD, its 120fps high-speed capability is ideal for slow motion capture of sports or dramatic action sequences.
4/3-inch Sensor Produces Exceptional Shallow Depth of FieldThe AG-DVX200PJ features a 4/3-type, large-format image sensor with high sensitivity of F11 to create highly attractive Bokeh effects by blending 4K resolution with shallow focusing. The large-format 4/3-inch imager features advanced color separation filter technology to provide natural, yet accurate colors, especially skin tones. It also lets you capture clear images with minimal noise when shooting in dimly lit locations.
Multi-format/Multi-codec RecordingThe MP4/MOV codec provides 4K (4096 x 2160)/24p, UHD (3840 x 2160)/60p and FHD (1920 x 1080) high-bit-rate recording, and the AVCHD codec supports low-bit-rate HD/SD recording. Being able to select from a variety of recording modes, each with a different image quality, frame rate, and bit rate, meets a wide range of applications, from cinema production to Internet distribution.
13X 4K Leica Dicomar Fixed Optical LensThe high-performance Leica Dicomar 4K lens has passed the stringent quality standards of Leica Camera AG. A multi-coating process minimizes ghosts and flaring, while the use of a low-dispersion glass suppresses chromatic aberration. This results in clear images with very little color bleeding. This newly designed Leica Dicomar 4K F2.8~F4.5 zoom lens (4K/24p: 29.5 mm ~ 384.9 mm, HD: 28 mm ~ 365.3 mm, 35 mm equivalent) is an optimal choice for 4K video, with the ability to produce exceptional imagery and subtle bokeh (blur quality).
The AG-DVX200PJ features three manual rings for mechanical (cam-driven) Zoom, Focus and Iris control. This manual operation offers a highly familiar, professional feel.
Wider Dynamic Range and GamutThe AG-DVX200PJ features a V-Log L function that is equivalent to the V-Log and curve characteristics provided on the new VariCam Series. Its 12-stop wide dynamic range accommodates cinema production work requiring post-process color gradation. The DVX200's V-Log L tonal curve matches that of the VariCam35 V-Log curve, permitting easy mixing and grading of VariCam and DVX200 in post, so the DVX200 can be used as a "crash cam" on a VariCam shoot. In addition, gamma curves can be selected from 8 modes, including CINE-LIKE V, CINELIKE D, FILMLIKE 1/2/3, HD and SD.
Dual Codec RecordingDual codec recording allows for simultaneous capture of UHD 30p and FHD, or FHD and FHD low bit rates, which essentially produces master and offline/proxy versions of footage. An efficient workflow can be achieved by using the Sub Rec File for tasks such as previews, offline editing and Internet data transfers.
Ultra Easy to UseThe compact, solid feel of the camera permits easy single-handed shooting or shooting on a tripod as needed. Equipped with a Leica Dicomar 13X optical zoom lens and three-ring manual control over the lens functions (zoom, focus and iris), the camera offers creative control for any shooting style. Nine customizable user buttons facilitate shooting for many different applications. A built-in wave form monitor and level gauge (to ensure level horizons when shooting) are included.
SD Memory Card U3 Standard for 4K AcquisitionThe AG-DVX200PJ records onto SDHC/SDXC cards. Supporting the UHS Speed Class 3 for high-speed data transfer, this enables 4K/24p, UHD/60p and VFR recording. Approximately 160 minutes of 4K/24p data can be recorded onto a 128 GB SD card, or a scene of about 110 minutes of UHD/60p data.
Viewfinders Make Shooting 4K EasyThe camera has a high-resolution touch screen LCD viewfinder as well as a high resolution OLED Electronic Viewfinder, which has an eye sensor and only turns on when your eye is in close proximity to the viewfinder. Its 5 Axis Optical Stabilization ensures smooth natural camera motion, even when shooting handheld at high or low angles or on a vehicle. A new, very accurate auto focus ensures that even in 4K, and with the associated shallow depth of field, critical focus is maintained.
Double SD Card Slot Boosts Recording ReliabilityTwo SD card slots allow dual codec recording, and enable various recording formats to raise recording reliability. The two SD card slots permit Background Recording (records ordinary Rec Start/Stop-controlled data in Slot 1, and records all data, even when the AG-DVX200 is stopped, in Slot 2); Relay Recording: (automatically records continuously from Slot 1 to Slot 2); Simultaneous Recording (Identical data is recorded onto cards in both slots in this highly safe recording mode); and SD Card Copy (recorded data is copied between the two slots).
