Our Take on the AJ-PX270:
The Panasonic AJ-PX270 microP2 Handheld AVC-ULTRA HD Camcorder has 12-axis image color control for effective adjustment of colors. Protecting your skin tones is a piece of cake, thanks to its three skin-tone control feature. You will like its 22x optical zoom lens, which is characterized by a focal length of 35 millimeters, corresponding to 28 to 616 millimeters. With its Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) feature, you can be sure of perfect capturing during handheld shooting. Also, the lens comes with distinct control rings for iris, focus, and zoom. This will make it possible for you to manually control the lens to get the most satisfactory result.
Besides, the AJ-PX270 records at typical speeds, and variable frame rates in 1080p. There are slots for microP2, P2, and SD cards, hence, you have a wide media range to select from. Recording to SDHC/SDXC cards via the microP2 slots is a stroll in the park when you use decreased data rates. The two microP2 slots enable you to record in different modes including simultaneous, relay, loop, dual-codec, one-clip, and background recordings. There is an Ethernet port, which makes it possible for you to link to a LAN without using a computer. Hence, you can send files via a global IP address to an FTP server.
Moreover, this camcorder comes with 2.5mm and 3.5mm jacks for remote zoom s/s control and remote focus/iris control respectively. It makes use of typical streaming protocols, and you can link it to a Wi-Fi network with the aid of a USB dongle. It works perfectly with VW-VB batteries, just like the VW-VBD58 battery that is included in the package.
