Panasonic has announced that an AG Remote Operation Panel application facilitating remote control of the AG-DVX200PJ 4K camcorder from an iPad is immediately available as a free download from the Apple App Store. Installation of a wireless module, AJ-WM30 or ASUS USB-N53 (both sold separately), is required. The firmware in the camcorder may need to be updated to the newest version. With iPad, iOS7.1, iOS8.1, iOS9 are supported. iPhone is not supported.
The new AG ROP app enables wireless remote control of the DVX200PJ's picture quality adjustment, zoom, focus and REC start/stop. The touch control via iPad furthers the utility of the DVX200PJ in crane, jib and other mobile applications.
The 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.
The camcorder is optimized for 4K/HD production, with stunning bokeh effects and a V-Log L curve (measured at 12 stops) emulating the natural grey-scale rendition of the VariCam 35. The DVX200PJ incorporates a newly developed 4/3-inch large-format MOS sensor with high sensitivity of F11, and offers variable frame rate recording from 2fps to 120fps in 1080p mode, enhancing the camcorder’s utility in sports and VFX production.
The handheld 4K camcorder offers an array of professional features including a newly-designed Leica Dicomar 4K F2.8~F4.5 zoom lens (4K/24p: 29.5 mm ~ 384.9 mm, HD: 28 mm ~ 365.3mm, 35 mm equivalent) with shallow depth-of-field, time-code in/out, 3G HD-SDI and HDMI 2.0 (4K) video outs (4:2:2 10-bit video), dual XLR audio inputs and 10 programmable user buttons.
