Finally online! The worldwide first footage of the brand new Panasonic AG-DVX200!
Shot on a pre production model in UHD resolution and 50p. Sadly the compression of Vimeo and YouTube is so high, you just really can't judge the image. All I can say: This is the perfect camera for Documentaries and fast TV work stuff, where you have to be fast and where you still want to achieve a cinematic image. Due to the M4/3 sensor it's way easier to focus than with a Super 35 or Full Frame sensor. Almost everything shot full wide open. Native ISO of this camera is 500.
I used the flat V-Log profile, applied VariCam 35 Rec 709 and graded everything very hard + added some grain to the footage. This was shot during the Panasonic #DVX4Ktour. Shot on Location in Kyoto, Japan.
This was a personal test I did just after purchasing a set of Lomo Anamorphic Square Fronts. The set consists of a 35mm, 50mm, and a 80mm. I've been very happy with the performance of these things considering when I received them they hadn't been serviced in a decade or two.
I wasn't planning on making a video but then I saw Shane Hurlbut's great videos and thought other people might find it helpful. There isn't a lot of info on RED and anamorphics if you don't do the research yourself. Hopefully this saves somebody some time.
