4K Panasonic DVX200 $4200

panasonic_ag-dvx200_profile

The Panasonic DVX200 is the first 4k documentary camera to have a large Micro 4/3 Sensor with 12 stops Dynamic Range and a fixed lens.
The Micro 4/3 sensor makes it much easier to keep things in focus. While it doesn’t have interchangeable lenses, the kit lens is a very respectable 35mm equivalent of 29.5 – 384.9mm. And it has a macro focus mode as well as built-in ND filters. The native ISO of only 500 is low, but this is not the maximum ISO which has not yet been established. It can do 180 fsp at 1080p.

This camera works for run and gun shooting as well as the low budget feature. The stabilizer uses a combination of optical and electronic stabilization on 5 axes. It also has 2 XLR Inputs.
